2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast

2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast Description Electrical ballast is a device whose aim is limiting the amount of current that passes through a discharge lamp during the start-up. First, they provide the necessary voltage to start up the lamp and after that they limit the current. Lamps that use ballast are halogen lamps, [...]

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps Description The innovative IRC technology increases the efficiency of halogen lamps by reflecting a major part of the generated useless IR radiation back to the coil where it is converted into visible light. The infrared reflective coating at the outside [...]

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) Description In a CFL, an electric current is driven through a tube containing argon and a small amount of mercury vapor. This generates invisible ultraviolet light that excites a fluorescent coating (called phosphor) on the inside of the tube, which then emits visible [...]

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps Description Light in an LED is emitted by a solid, rather than a gas object as it is the case of the fluorescent tubes. The LED is a semiconductor diode that emits light when it is crossed by an electric current. Wavelength of the [...]

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter Description The most commonly used fluorescent lamps today are the T8 (ø 26 mm). However, the T5, (ø 16 mm) which only work with auxiliary electronic equipment, have been developed. This, along with its minor diameter provides a high luminous efficiency, which can [...]

2.4.7 Replacement of standard fluorescent tubes by triphosphorous fluorescent tubes

2.4.7 Replacement of standard fluorescent tubes by triphosphorous fluorescent tubes Description Lamps that contain the next generation of phosphors offer improvements in efficiency as well as very good colour rendering. Benefits Provide between a 12 and 15% more light Longer lifespan (around 12,000-19,000 hours) Better light quality Less mercury [...]

2.4.8 Installation of more efficient luminaires with suitable light distribution

2.4.8 Installation of more efficient luminaires with suitable light distribution Description The efficiency of a luminaire is the relation between the luminous flux that leaves it and the luminous flux of the lamp that holds. With high efficient luminaires with modern reflection, transmission and/or refraction systems that produce light in the correct [...]

2.4.9 Installation of presence detectors in sporadic use zones

2.4.9 Installation of presence detectors in sporadic use zones Description Presence detectors are used to connect or disconnect the lighting of any space according to the existence or not of people in the same. With this, the turn on and off control is performed automatically, without forcing anyone to operate it, so [...]

2.4.10 Installation of time delay switches in sporadic use zones

2.4.10 Installation of time delay switches in sporadic use zones Description Timing switcher is a device that once it has been pressed, it remains on during an established period of time and then automatically turns off. In this way, there is not waste of light because of carelessness of users. [...]

2.4.11 Installation of manual potentiometer switches

2.4.11 Installation of manual potentiometer switches Description It is a high frequency push/rotatory or slide dimmer switch. The DC supply can be increased or decreased by the switch to affect the resistance, hence the dimness of the lamp. This form of dimming requires a dimming pair of cables to be run around [...]
