Description: Do you run industrial system or commercial establishment? One of the most important components that can greatly affect productivity is lighting. Lighting in any system is crucial because it helps users to interact and follow various instructions. Note that it is not just in industries that adequate lighting is needed. Even at home, lack of ample lighting can cause straining and compromise personal comfort. As you select the preferred lighting, it is important to ensure that it caters for the targeted purpose. For example, industrial settings should have heavy duty lighting to make sure everything is easily visible. The following are the main categories of lighting that you should consider when selecting lighting for your facility. 1. Light-emitting diodes (LED): This is one of the fast evolving technologies in the lighting niche today. It is preferred because it consumes less energy and provides quality light compared to the older lamps. LED lighting is about 30% more efficient compared to CFLs. 2. Incandescent lighting: This was the dominant form of lighting in most facilities before the wide adoption of LED. The lighting uses incandescent lamps and an electric current that heats a filament to generate light. The main disadvantages of this lighting are high power consumption and a shorter lifespan. 3. Compact fluorescent lamps: These lamps were introduced in the 1980s and helped to revolutionize lighting in homes and commercial facilities. The only concern about compact fluorescent lamps is that they contain some CFL and mercury that are considered environmental pollutants. 4. HID lighting: High-intensity lighting (HID) is the common lighting system installed in industries, warehouses, and streets to provide optimal illumination over a wide area. HID lighting can be made from metal halide, mercury vapor, or high-pressure sodium.
