The advantages of Induction lamps


JML IntelliNRG Induction Lampshttp://www.ieqglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/HighBay.jpg

The end is near for metal halide, pressurized sodium and high powered fluorescent lamps.  These energy guzzling and excessive heat-generating lamp sources have long been the mainstay yet bugbear of users who require light to cover long throw distances and be extremely bright.

JML Global offers the JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps range for commercial, industrial and residential applications.  Using induction lighting technology, this relatively new lamp type delivers a phosphorous glow without the usual electrodes, eliminating the filament – the highest single point of failure of conventional lamps.

The energy consumption of JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps is kept to a minimum, resulting in over 50 percent energy savings.  There is negligible heat, glare, electromagnetic or THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) emission and they contain no mercury vapour.  Used to directly replace conventional, incandescent and technologically dated lighting technology, JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps ARE the World’s Most Energy Efficient Lights.


About JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps

JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps deliver unmatched operating hours, providing minimal degradation up 50,000 hours, over conventional Lamps that last 10,000 hours.  JML IntelliNRG induction lamps may continue to operate up to 100,000 hours.  Comparatively, Induction lamps generate more lumens per watt with less energy consumption, produce less excessive heat and glare which improves thermal comfort, saves air conditioning costs and maximizes eye protection.  Not only do Induction Lamps contain relatively lower amounts of chemicals, they also have a significantly lower failure rate.

Conventional incandescent or fluorescent lamps suffer from rapid lumen depreciation and colour shift, but Induction lamps maintain 95 percent of lumen output at 9,000 burning hours and never change colours.  Typically, a 200W Induction Lamp can produce the same brightness as a 500W Metal Halide, achieving 60 percent energy savings.

The price of JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps is very competitive, approximately 50% the price of LED equivalent lamps.  JML IntelliNRG Induction lamps require reduced replacement or re-lamping cycles thereby minimizing maintenance cost by over 30 percent.

Like high quality LED lamps, JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps offer instant re-strike, colour stability, 80+ CRI, high power factor and last 50,000 hours based on acceptable lux.  But unlike LED, JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps are not only a fraction of the cost, they also offer a wider throw and have a more evenly distributed polar curve light distribution.

Induction Lamps generate minimal toxicity both in manufacturing and material components. In this Green era, JML Global provides a broad spectrum of energy-saving lamp solutions that will address the Green Agenda.

JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps – A Green Alternative to LEDhttp://www.ieqglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/Flood.jpg
In the past century, Induction Lamps have evolved into very stable and excellent alternatives for incandescent lamps such as metal halide, pressurized sodium and fluorescent – and provide more benefits compared with LED lamps:

·         Induction Lamps offer the same benefits as LED lamps for under half the price – JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps provide similar or higher energy efficiency, generate minimal heat and are as environmentally friendly but the mature technology keeps cost of production relatively low.

·         Induction Lamps require fewer lamps for a specific area –JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps produce wider light distribution (polar curve) and result in fewer lamps needed than LED to illuminate the same area or better lux levels using the same number of lamps.

·         Induction Lamps have long lifespans of up to 100,000 hours – LEDs have a lifespan not exceeding 50,000 hours before they are unable to provide basic illumination. JML IntelliNRG Induction lamps provide excellent illumination to 50,000 hours and acceptable illumination to 100,000 hours.

·         Induction Lamps are based on very mature technology – LED commercial lighting is a recent phenomenon, with few international or local standards to certify performance and safety.  JML IntelliNRG Induction technology is mature, stable, and has been around for a century.

·         Induction Lamps provide one of the lowest total cost of ownership – Over a 1 to 5 year period, the TCO for JML IntelliNRG Induction Lamps is far lower than for LED or conventional incandescent equivalents.


Lamp Technology Selection

We have consulted with our clients on the type of lamp technology to select.  Some feel that LED lighting solutions are better, while others prefer Induction lighting technology.  In truth, the type of lighting technology to select really depends on its specific applications and lighting design, as well as the required lamp performance and lighting budgets.  The only overriding consideration is that the type of lighting technology selected must be energy efficient and environmentally sustainable, throughout the entire life-cycle of a lamp for JML Global to advocate its use.
