Induction Lighting FAQ

Q: Why choose induction lighting over other alternatives?
A: Because the complete fixture is maintenance free throughout its 100,000 hour lifespan and promises to reduce your energy costs by at least 50%.

Q: Why is induction lighting technology considered more environmentally friendly than others?
A: Again mainly due to the energy savings achieved but in addition to this, the mercury content within the induction lamp is in a solid form. This allows the lamp to be 100% recyclable. Furthermore, because of the 100,000 hour lifespan that is provided, one would be required to change each conventional lamp fixture 5 times over that same period.

Q: How is the induction lamp performance affected by temperature?
A: It performs at over 90% of its light output capacity between -40C to 50C (-40F to 140F).

Q: Are induction lamps resistant to vibration?
A: The fact that Induction lamps are electrode less results in this technology being the ideal choice for environments that experience higher levels of vibration such as bridges and tunnels.

Q: How much heat is produced by induction lamps in comparison to what’s out there?
A: If you take high bays for example, most existing warehouses are lit up by high pressure sodium and metal-halide 400W fixtures. The heat levels for both of these will range between 600F and 900F. When you compare this to an induction lamp application which ranges between 75F and 150F, the benefits become obvious.

Q: Are induction lamps ready for the North American market?
A: Most of our products range between 120v to 347v and are already UL, cUL and CSA certified.

Q: Where should you install induction lights?
A: Everywhere! They can be used in warehouses, arenas, gymnasiums, factories, bridges, tunnels, shopping centers, parking lots, supermarkets, etc.

Q: Why should you choose induction lamps over of those new efficient technologies like fluorescent T5 and T8?
A: Because induction lighting is considered maintenance free over its 100,000 hour lifespan. Compare this to 25,000 lifespan T5 and T8 lighting offer and also historically will involve having to change between 2 to 8 bulbs per fixture. In addition, induction lamps are 100% recyclable, unlike fluorescent lighting that are full of a form of liquid mercury which is very harmful to our environment. Last but not least, induction fixtures will operate on motion sensors without affecting their 100,000 hour lifespan, T5 and T8 lighting cannot make this claim.

Q: What quality of light will THINK Induction lamps provide to you?
A: Color rendering index of 85+ with Kelvin temperatures ranging from 2520 to 6500K. They will also provide you with 192 pupil lumens per watt.
