How Induction Lights Work

How LED Lights Work?

Edison’s incandescent light bulbs work by heating up a filament. This causes the majority of all energy produced to be lost in heat. LED on the other hand, uses highly-conductive materials and dynamic atomic charges to create light. All particles have either a positive charge or a negative one. When an LED lamp is switched off, every particle runs to its polar opposite, all the negative ions are attached to a positive ion. LED lamps turn on via an atomic disruption. LED (Light Emitting Diodes) are semi-conductors which means that when electrons pass through it, the resulting energy production converts into light, much more efficient than the CFL or the incandescent.

How Induction Lights Work

The mechanism of the induction bulbs is very different, it uses an electromagnetic field to accelerate the mercury particles and help them mix up the inert gases krypton and argon. The mercury makes the UV light and a covering inside the tube help make it visible. In this way, the induction lamps are similar to traditional bulbs but since mercury in the induction lamps uses an electromagnet to start moving rather than simple metal prongs, many industries prefer the induction bulbs. Unlike the incandescent bulbs (the Edison style bulbs), induction lamps don’t require a fragile electrode burning inside the bulb to produce light. This allows the bulbs to burn for up to 100,000 hours!

Bulb Lifetime

In comparing the two there has been rigorous research and valid observation that the induction bulb does indeed last longer than the LED. It has been noted that the induction bulb lasts up to 80,000-100,000 hours whereas the LED lasts for up to 50,000 hours. Induction lamps are the better choice when light needs to be scattered from one place to another. For example, many well lit parking lots utilize induction lights.

Induction Lamps vs’ LED Lamps

Induction Lamps create light by using an electromagnetic field to excite mercury particles mixed in an inert gas like argon or krypton. The mercury creates a UV light and a phosphor on the inside of the bulb or tube filters the energy into visible light. This is a type of fluorescent light. Unlike a standard energy fluorescent light this does not use electrodes in the tube. On the other hand, the Light emitting diodes are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don’t have a filament that will burn out, and they don’t get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, and they last just if a standard transistor.

The traditional bulb is surpassed by the LED in terms of brightness as well as energy efficiency. However, induction lamps have an extremely long life and are known to last much longer than a simple LED lights. The induction lamp can be properly and completely sealed as they don’t require electrodes to work thus increasing its life by a substantial amount. It’s very energy efficient often working for more than 80 lumens per watt. It also has the potential of lighting up both small and large areas depending on which induction lamp one utilizes. LED has some distinct features which make it an excellent choice for any customer. LED is extremely energy efficient outputting more than 135 lumens per watt and are known to run for more than 50000 hours if correctly engineered. In addition, LED’s light instantly requiring no warm up period whatsoever.

Save Energy With Induction Lighting

Why Make The Switch To Induction Lighting?

It’s clear as day that we are on the verge of a monumental energy crisis. That’s not going to stop people from lighting up their houses and Christmas trees with high energy consuming light bulbs and children leaving light bulbs on in every room. Energy for Lighting can use up to 60% (in schools) and 31% in retail stores of an entire organization’s budget.

People who finally recognize the problem and look to the energy crisis as an actual thing start to look towards alternatives. One of the most popular and widely renown replacement of household lamps are Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) which have reduced the energy consumption by as much as 75%, but due to the non-suitability of CFL in industrial and commercial settings we look further to more viable and realistic solutions. After huge amounts of research, we find that there are two options that can satisfy the high-lighting demands of the industrial and commercial sector while maintaining costs at a stable level.

The two front runners are in fact Magnetic Induction Lamps (also called Induction Lights) and Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights.
