DHID™ (Digital HID™) Lighting Reduces Industry Lighting Expenses by 50%+

Industry can be more competitive and environmentally effective today by significantly reducing the costs and electricity consumption associated with the operation of lighting. By replacing antiquated lighting systems with high performance energy efficient Digital High-Intensity Discharge lighting (Digital HIDTM or DHIDTM), 50%+ less electricity is consumed and demanded from the power utilities; cost-effectively reducing Industry’s carbon footprint. When considering the upgrade of an existing HID lighting system or lighting for new Green Building projects, DHIDTM technology delivers the most energy efficient lighting solutions for Street Lighting, Factory/Warehouse High-Bay Lighting, Greenhouse Hydroponics, Sporting Arena, Airport and Renewable Energy Applications.

Any existing core and coil (magnetic) ballast HID application can benefit immediately just by retrofitting the old magnetic ballast with a new DHIDTM ballast. From an environmental standpoint, by reusing the existing light fixture and lens assembly, less waste is created and money is saved since only a new ballast need be purchased, leaving only the old ballast to be recycled (we partner end-users with recommended magnetic ballast recycling companies).

DHIDTM‘s value-added features and performance make it the smart solution for any new installation; it is the most cost-effective alternative to LED, Fluorescent and Induction based technologies for new and retrofit industrial and commercial Green lighting projects. Digital Ballasts offer unparalleled electrical efficiency and performance compared to conventional magnetic ballasts and outperforms LED, Fluorescent, and Induction lighting in initial buying cost, energy efficiency, system performance, light quality, and maintenance/consumable costs.

With an industry leading luminous efficacy of 116 Lumens/Watt, conventional higher Wattage magnetic ballast HID lighting fixtures are now easily upgraded/retrofitted or replaced with the new higher-performance, yet lower wattage DHIDTM Digital ballast or fixture. For example, a conventional 1000W Metal Halide magnetic ballast, can be retrofitted with the DHIDTM 575W Digital Ballast offering an immediate and significant 50% energy savings and approximately 18% brighter light. Add the ability to dim the Digital HIDTM Ballasts, and even greater energy savings can be realized. Using Automatic Dimming or pre-programmed schedule dimming to dim lights on daily set schedules can reduce your project electricity operating expenses by 75%+.

Digital HIDTM (DHIDTM) Product Benefits and Specifications:

– Significant (up to 75%) saving of electrical energy and maintenance costs
– Automatic loss-of-lumen compensation as lamp ages; lamp quality brightness will degrade only 5% over the entire 30,000hrs+ MTBF of the MH, CMH or HPS bulb.  95% Lumen Maintenance = No Relamping!
– Produces up to 40% more Lumens/Watt than core-and-coil (magnetic) ballasts without losses (DHIDTM luminous efficacy specification is 116lm/W)
– Increased life expectancy (100%) of the lamp compared to core-and-coil (magnetic) ballast technology.
– Highest efficiency ballast on the market: 97%, DHIDTM Digital HIDTM ballast generates minimal heat – this improves the efficiency of HVAC and Refrigeration systems in building and warehouse applications.
– 1%-70% dimming of incoming power produces additional cost saving.
– Multiple dim modes: motion sensor/PLC dimming with discrete or Analog 0-10VDC signal; onboard (Automatic) pre-programmed dimming maximizes electricity cost savings.
– Virtually no loss of electrical energy. Watts consumed = Watts produced
– Conventional core-and-coil (magnetic) ballasts create significant heat and operate at a 25% loss in terms of Watts consumed and Watts produced.
– Very easy retrofit installations for Metal Halide (MH), Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps (DHIDTM Digital ballast operates any of these types)

Outperforming LED, Fluorescent and Induction lighting technologies, DHIDTM Digital Ballast powered HID lighting is proven to be the value-added lighting solution. DHIDTM’s low initial buying cost, energy efficiency, system performance, light quality, and reduced maintenance/consumable cost benefits add up to the industries best return on investment time.
