Sports Light includes a distinctive feature: ability to remote mount the driver, allowing for on-site flexibility and lower EPA wind ratings. This remote capability not only makes the fixture easy to install but simplifies maintenance. Lamps can be placed up to 50 meters (164 feet) high, but drivers can be placed in a bank at the base level. When it’s time to replace the driver, service is just a matter of accessing at the base – not getting on a lift.
Why are LED Lights the key to perfect lighting in a stadium?
When choosing the type of sports lighting to install at a venue, it is not necessary to focus only on solutions to short-term problems with the fixtures installed. Its goal should be to improve the quality of future playing fields and ensure maintenance costs remain within budget.
LED sports lights have significant advantages over metal halide sports lights. Therefore, choosing the right LED sports lights for your stadium is crucial to a successful business plan.
Why should I choose LED Lights rather than Halogen lamps?
In order to understand how light is generated, it is important to understand two independent processes. The first occurs before electricity reaches the LED light bulb and can be considered as a Power Consumption Process. The second takes place a little later, with the projection of light.
1.Power Consumption Process
By electricity consumption we mean the percentage of energy that is not wasted, which is necessary to turn on the lights. In ordinary halogen lamps, up to 80% of the energy is wasted in the process of supplying electricity. With our LEDs, less than 10% of the energy is wasted, so our sports LED lighting will require less electricity and will match and exceed the light projection provided by halogen fixtures for sports lighting.
2.Light Projection Process
The lighting process is the second stage. Once the lights are turned on, you need to cast light onto the ground with a strong light intensity. This is where the distinction between luminosity and efficiency is very important.
Is a high-power LED light more efficient just because it is very bright?
The answer to this question is a simple NO. The most relevant thing about an LED is not how bright it is, but how far it can cast it. If a light is very bright for the first 5-10 meters, but from this distance its intensity diminishes and the light reaching the playing field will be rather low, it should be taken into account that for sports lighting the luminaires are usually mounted high pole.erefore, instead of thinking only about luminosity, it is also necessary to consider how light travels through distance. The luminosity is a relevant factor, but not the only one to consider.
How can this ability to travel be achieved?
The key factor to produce high brightness is the main purpose of sports led lighting. Geometric optics views light as a set of straight rays that bend when they are crossed or reflected by surfaces. Therefore, when the lenses for each stadium lighting are fabricated and installed, it is crucial to analyze to the maximum extent how light leaves the fixtures and manipulate them in such a way that they cast in a certain direction. This is achieved through mathematical combinations and programs that simulate light. All this we (LED lights specialists) do with maximum accuracy thanks to the professional masters of our engineering department. If the light from the LEDs is more concentrated, there will be less light scattered or wasted leaving the fixture.
Are there other reasons to choose the LED sport lights than the halogen sports lighters for use in the stadium or field?
HALOGEN STADIUM LIGHTS
1: Lower Track Light Scope: Much lower efficiency.
2: Higher Power Consumption: Only 20-60% of the electrical energy is used to turn on the lights. A lot of power is wasted during the process.
3: Low Efficiency: Only 60-80% of the voltage is correctly counterbalanced by the ballast. This means that the Power Factor is only 60-80% which causes significant interference on the electric current. If we assume that an installation includes other electrical equipment apart from luminaires, they will be affected much more negatively than if we use LEDs.
4: Fragile: with high maintenance rate since they use glass tubes.
5: High Reaction Time: Lights need at least 1 minute to reach their maximum brightness.
6: Health Threat: A higher proportion of ultraviolet light is used.
7: High Temperature: what makes the proportion of lost light greater.
LED STADIUM LIGHTS
1: Higher Track Scope: Thanks to our unique optics, we are able to provide more light on the playing court than traditional lights or other LED manufacturers.
2: Lower Power Consumption: About 95% of the electricity is used to turn on the light, losing less than 5%.
3: High Efficiency Ballasts: LEDs use switched sources, exceeding 95% efficiency. They incorporate a capacitor that redistributes and compensates the voltage better. This means that there is better stability and less interference in the electrical circuit.
4: Luminaires Resistencies: Manufactured shockproof
5: Awesome Reaction Time: In milliseconds the LED Light turns on completely.
6: Ecological and Clean light source: LEDs focus on the visible color spectrum, so UV rays are hardly used.
7: Cooler Light Source: Generates less heat as compare to ordinary bulbs.
LED lights are the best choice to save energy, and our advanced optical system, achieves better light projection by increasing the illumination on the track. The only disadvantage of sports LED lighting is that it requires a larger initial investment, but the energy savings of using LEDs is a great advantage. After a year and a half, the savings on electricity bills are enough to cover the initial costs. Currently, LED sports lighting uses the best technology and is the best solution on the market. LED is not the future, it is also the present and the future!
