Benefits of LED 65,000 hour System life= • 60% reduction in associated maintenance costs Optical efficiency and electrical design= • 60% reduction in energy consumption 6 year payback period in most instances Dependent on energy and installation costs Financial
Issues with HID Lower fixture efficiencies Require frequent maintenance Lack of uniformity Poor vertical illuminance
Benefits of LED LED absolute photometry results in 100% fixture efficiency 85% lumen maintenance after 100,000 hours Resistant to vibration Color Rendering Index of 70 allows for use with color security cameras Improved Fixture Efficiency
Benefits of LED In HID systems multiple components can fail • Lamps rated at 20-25K hrs. (reality is 12-15K) • Vibration can damage welded electrodes and contacts • cycling • Ballast rated at 50K hrs. (heat and voltage rise will shorten life) • Capacitors • Ignitors • NEMA Twist lock plots control cell • 4K – 25K hours (cost adder) Less Maintenance
Benefits of LED Less Maintenance NEMA twist lock photocell <25,000 hr life Quadruple redundant integrated Photo control cell 100,000 hr life
Benefits of LED Most roadway applications will require a 6.0 max/min light level ratio Illuminates dark spots • Dark spots increase risks associated with undetected roadway hazards Better uniformity allows for improved driver reaction times • Reaction times decrease when the eye does not need to adjust to varying light levels. Uniformity
10 kV of surge protection in power supply • Metal Oxide Varistor • 5 amp ceramic fuse • Gas discharge tube 10kV of In-line surge protection • Field serviceable Results in less damage to components due to power surge Benefits of LED Fusing
Benefits of LED Uniformity Better Uniformity Better Visibility
