-> 95% Lumen Maintenance = No Relamping!

GloGreen Digital HID ballasts operating Metal Halide, Ceramic Metal Halide and High-Pressure Sodium HID bulbs offer an industry leading 95% lumen maintenance. The MH, CMH or HPS bulb will not degrade more than 5% over its entire lifespan.  There is no need for relamping; the DHID ballast turns off at the end of the bulb’s life; i.e. every 4.6 years or 55 months (40,000 hours) of bulb life and beyond when smart dimming is introduced.

The chart below illustrates GloGreen DHID’s lumen maintenance performance versus Philips Lighting’s various 320W and 400W HID ballast products. All start at 100% lumen output, but the GloGreen Digital HID ballast excels, maintaining the same original bulb light output or brightness well beyond the competitor recommended 18,000 hours re-lamp time.

GloGreen DHID Ballasts operate with optimal efficiency at 97%, all Watts input are virtually output as light delivered to the ground (116lm/W). Due to this efficiency, Accendo recommends the retrofit or replacement of inefficient electronic or magnetic 320W or 400W ballasts and ballast fixtures with the GloGreen 200/250W Retrofit Ballast or GloGreen 200/250W Fixture solution.

GloGreen DHID = No Relamping!

Accendo GloGreen DHID 200/250W Ballast Powered Highbay Fixture solutions are 97% efficient and offer an immediate 40%-50%+ Energy Savings over 400W magnetic HID solutions. DHID lighting delivers more energy efficiency, higher-performance, longer lasting light quality and guaranteed reduced maintenance and bulb costs for Industry’s shortest return on lighting investment.

MH, CMH and HPS bulbs operated by GloGreen Digital HID ballasts now last 40,000 hours and beyond; relamping is no longer required since the originally specified light quality and penetration will never visibly decline (no more than 5% degradation over the entire life of the bulb for 95% lumen maintenance). Since the bulb’s brightness will not decrease over time, the GloGreen 200W or 250W solution can meet the project requirements with equal light levels, but at 50% less energy and operating costs.

GloGreen Digital HID ballasts operating Metal Halide, Ceramic Metal Halide or High-Pressure Sodium bulbs eliminate the need for relamping; the DHID ballast lumen maintenance is 95% and the DHID ballast extends the life of the lamp 100%. The DHID ballast turns off at the end of the bulb’s life; i.e. every 4.6 years or 55 months (40,000 hours) of bulb operation, and beyond when smart dimming is introduced.

The chart to the left illustrates GloGreen DHID’s lumen maintenance performance versus Philips Lighting’s various 320W and 400W HID ballast products.

The GloGreen Digital HID ballast excels, maintaining the same original bulb light output or brightness well beyond the competitor recommended re-lamp times (indicated as vertical line breaks).

The GloGreen Digital HID Ballasts operate with optimal efficiency, all Watts input are virtually output as light delivered to the ground (116lm/W). Due to this efficiency, Accendo recommends the retrofit or replacement of inefficient electronic or magnetic 320W or 400W ballasts with the GloGreen 200/250W solution.
