The mercury in Induction lamps is necessary as the mercury atoms emit UV light which creates visible light when the phosphor coating on the inside of the tube is up-converted.
Magnetic Inductions lamps are either rectangular shaped or doughnut shaped. Ecoglow’s flood and tunnel lights are typically rectangular shaped and the high bays, doughnut shaped. The two shapes are determined by the housing and application.
Induction lights are usually available in 3500-6500K. Ecoglow prefers 5000-6500K as the higher the kelvin, the brighter the light output therefore, more suited to commercial and industrial applications.
Ecoglow Induction lamps have a typical lifespan of up to 100,000 hours approximately double the lifetime of traditional lamps. Please see the graph to the right which demonstrates a comparison of the typical lifespan of various lamps available on the market.
