LIBRARY

InduLux Technologies offers you a selection of papers on Magnetic Induction Lighting technology, also called Induction Lamps or Induction Lights,  is currently one of the longest lifespan types of lighting available!  While this technology has been surpassed in energy efficiency by LED lighting, there are still applications where Induction lighting is useful.  The papers in our library provide information and education on various aspects of Induction Lights.

EconoLux - What Light Do Plants Need? What Light Do Plants Need?

This is an example of a paper we were commissioned to produce for EconoLux Industries, about plant/grow lighting and spectrum needs of plants grown under artificial lighting.

Agricultural (or Horticultural) lighting (plant/grow lights), are widely used in greenhouses, or indoor controlled environments with no natural daylight; to either replace, or augment, natural sunlight (daylight) in the growing of many different types of crops. These crops can include, peppers, tomatoes, leafy greens, herbs, flowers or medicinal plants.
In many cases, the most popular type of lights used are HID (Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium) lamps. These lamps are generally deficient in spectrum of the light delivered to the plants, and the electrical energy needed to operate the plant/grow-lights is a significant amount of the input cost involved in the production of the crops.
This paper discusses the various curves used to quantify the light spectrum that is most desirable for plant cultivation.

The Science Behind Magnetic Induction Lighting - By: Michael Roberts

The Science Behind Magnetic Induction Lighting 

This 28 page paper (available as a PDF) gives a comprehensive overview of Magnetic Induction Lighting, how it works, a discussion of human vision, detailed information on S/P ratios and Visually Effective Lumens (VEL), the psychological effects of light, etc. There are numerous citations and quotes from scientific papers which show that current lighting measurements do not accurately reflect the needs of human vision and how Induction Lamps can fulfill those needs in an energy efficient manner.  A brief overview of environmental issues shows that Induction lighting is a green lighting technology which can help reduce CO2 emissions thereby helping to reduce global warming.
The paper includes many graphs, charts and photographs to give the reader added insight into Magnetic Induction Lighting technology. 
References are included for those who wish to follow up on the original papers cited.

How Magnetic Induction Lamps Work
 

This 8 page paper (PDF) provides an introduction to Induction Lamps with a brief overview of a history of lighting, and a section detailing how some common conventional lamps work.  Extensive information, with diagrams, on how both external inductor and internal magnetic induction lamps operate is provided, so that the reader will become familiar with the inner working of induction lights.
There are some example induction lamp applications, and a summary section providing the advantages of induction lamps. Graphs, charts and photographs give the reader added insight into the technology.

Environmental Aspects Of Magnetic Induction Lamps - By: Michael Roberts
Cover Image

Environmental Aspects of Magnetic Induction Lamps

In an time when there is growing concern about Global Warming and Climate Change, and a desire to reduce our environmental footprint, individuals and business are seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact - to "Go Green".
This 16 page paper, with many illustrations and tables, considers energy efficient lighting, particularly Magnetic Induction Lamps, as a way to implement an environmentally friendly technology.  Induction Lamps are a green lighting technology that can reduce environmental impact in several areas such as saving energy, reducing CO
2 (greenhouse gas) emissions, reducing global warming (climate change), reducing Mercury consumption, and improving recycling issues.
Reducing the environmental impact and "carbon footprint" of your operations may be more feasible when implemented as a series of small incremental steps rather than as a large project.  One of the often overlooked areas, where it is both simple and financially feasible to make improvements, is in green lighting systems.

Induction Lamp Technology Application Guidelines - By: Michael Roberts

Induction Lamp Technology Application Guidelines

In light of many questions regarding the merits of internal inductor lamps Vs. external inductor lamps, high frequency and the low frequency ballasts available to drive them, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and various lamp colour temperatures (Kelvin);  it is sometimes confusing to determine which of these is the right choice for a particular induction lighting application.

This 8 page guide attempts to summarize the pros and cons of each induction lighting technology, in a simplified manner, so as to provide some general guidance for selecting the best induction lighting technology for your application.

Induction Lighting Case Studies - By: InduLux Technologies

Induction Lighting Case Study: Industrial Materials Preparation Area

A composite materials and structures fabrication company, is located in an older industrial warehouse, with high ceilings.  The pre-production area, where materials are measured and cut, was poorly lit by old mercury vapour (MV) High-bay fixtures.  The 12 inefficient MV High-bay fixtures were replaced with 15 Magnetic Induction Lamp based High-bay fixtures, and the incandescent security lights were also replaced with low-wattage Induction Lamps.
I
n summary, electrical load was reduced from 4,100W to 3,168W - about a 22% energy savings; Average light levels were improved from 130.3 to 257.5 Lux - about 98% brighter; and when adjusted for S/P Ratio, the new lighting produced 417.4 VEL - about a 300% increase in VEL!
T
his 6 page case study provided diagrams, detailed light measurements and before and after comparisons of energy consumption and light levels.

Induction Lighting Case Study: Retail Store Lighting

A small custom embroidered gift store, was poorly lit with recessed fluorescent troffer fixtures.  Staff complained they were having problems seeing fine needlework and matching colours.  The fluorescent fixtures were disabled and new Magnetic Induction lamp Low-bay fixtures with prismatic shades were installed.  Improved placement of the induction lamp fixtures eliminated operator shadows at the sewing machines.  Incandescent halogen track-lights were replaced with LED lamps.
In summary, the new magnetic induction fixtures and LED lamps provide much smoother, glare free lighting, at higher light levels, with improved colour rendering and significant energy savings.  Electrical load was reduced from 1,150 W to 717 W - more than a 37% energy savings; Average light levels were improved from 365.8 to 595.5 Lux - more than 55% brighter!
This 8 page case study provided diagrams, detailed light measurements and before and after comparisons of energy consumption and light levels.
