Induction lighting is the most advanced stage of fluorescent lighting. Its technological innovation stems from its "electrodeless" function. It is built without the standard metal electrical contacts used to conduct electricity from the fixture to the light-emitting gas inside the bulb. The advantage of the lamps is they have the ability of saving a generous 40% over their fluorescent counterparts, and have savings of up to 70% compared to HPS and MV alternatives. There are models available that achieve a life expectancy of up to 100,000 hours.
• Lamps can have 100,000 hours of longer life expectancy
• Attractive color renditions and color range from daylight to soft white
Induction is the process of transmitting energy via an electro-magnetic field. The light emitting gas inside the bulbs is energized when located within a sufficiently strong EMF, or electro-magnetic field, which is induced by passing alternating current through a coil, or inductor.
