Energy Management with SP1000

SP1000 is the most advanced and efficient energy management system, which is used for big industries to manage the energy consumptions and wastage. The energy costs are sky rocketing all around the world; SP1000 brings the best of technology to allow you having a peaceful breath.

SP1000 has endless opportunity with hybrid system that can take plenty of decisions and can also suggest ways to save energy with enhanced load carrying capabilities. Not only this but this equipment also has software to show up the saving actions as it maintains the power level through all your facility. Continue reading

Did You Notice The Change? – LED Lighting

There has been a paradigm shift in the way lighting is used from the first Edison’s candescent bulb to latest LED lighting systems. The change is certainly gigantic yet too small to be noticed by common populace. LED Lighting is no more a newer technology as it is being widely used in household, offices, business establishments and public lighting as well. LED is the most promising energy management system with high output and low maintenance. LED is also preferred over candescent bulbs because it has a longer life of 100,000 hours as compared to just 500 hours life span of candescent bulbs and LEDs are cooler as it converts 80% of current into light and 20% into heat whereas candescent bulb can only convert 20% into light with 80% heat.

What is wrong with Your Gas Station?

Do you feel that more motorists do not stop at your gas station but rather travel few extra miles to stop at some other? If you pay regular maintenance toil but fail to attract too many customers to your gas station then probably nothing is wrong with gas station but it may be connected to your gas station lights. Should you think about upgrading you gas station lights? Just have a thorough look at your gas station after the sunset from across the street; you probably would be able make out the decision if you question yourself, does the lighting attract motorists? Do lights make it appear like a safe and active place? You certainly need to upgrade the lighting.

What are the options?

You might still be using the old HID fixtures in your gas station that operate on huge power of 300-400 watt and overtime become dim, but still consume same amount of power. They are a complete waste of money and energy. Having realized that, wouldn’t it be nice if you can get LED lighting or induction lighting that uses 80% less energy and offers twenty times more life? Of course, they are low on maintenance and usually come with high warranties. Some of these models may also have dimmer capabilities and activity sensors to further cut down on the operation cost and energy consumption.

Little that you know that most of the urban cities and metropolitan cities gas stations are already using high power LED lights to illuminate their stations to attract more customers. With LED lighting, you have a double win situation, as the lights would surely get you enhanced business but would also save huge on the electricity bills. Don’t just remain stuck to outdated halogen, metal halide, candescent or fluorescent lights, switching to new technology is smarter and effective.

Energy Efficient and Eco Friendly LED lighting

Led lighting has dethroned the candescent and fluorescent lighting in the recent times. You might have learnt a lot about LED flat panels, LED tubes and LED bulbs that they are highly energy efficient, but have you also explored the much concerned side of LED lights to be natively safe for environment? Here are some quick facts that will enlighten you with more reasons to choose LED lighting. Continue reading

Incredible Induction Lighting with Energy Saving Features

Induction lighting is tremendously capable to save energy that is much higher than any other traditional source of lighting. Induction lights definitely have emerged as one of the preferred options of lighting for industries, street lights, parking lots and garage light applications.

What is induction light?

Induction Lighting, unlike most other light technologies, does not use electrodes to create illumination. Rather than using electrodes or filaments, which is typically the first failure point in a fluorescent lamp, induction lamps use magnets to conduct electricity. And with no electrodes to fail, Induction Light will last up to 100,000 hours.

Energy Saving Features

Since induction lights use high frequency generator in place of electrodes they have a larger life as compared to other lighting options like fluorescent lights. Moreover, induction lights produce high lumen in lesser wattage as it has a high energy conversion rate with minimum current waste. An induction lamp is capable of converting 80% of the energy into light and that is why it can greatly cut down the monthly electricity costs.

Life of Induction Lights

Induction lights can least up to 20 times more than traditional lighting. In most cases induction lights are rated for 100,000 hours.

Other Benefits:

  • Instant Start
  • 80+ CRI
  • Maintenance Free
  • No vibration, glare, noise or flickering

Choosing “Just any” Induction light retrofit “solution” can create big problems

A simple Induction light retrofit “solution” can quickly become more of a problem than a solution

Let’s look at a common scenario; a customer likes their current lighting housing, however they want the energy savings advantages of induction.  The solution; swap out the existing ballast and the lamp with an induction retrofit kit.  Simple, right? Continue reading
