Eliminate failure modes and lumen degradation found in traditional lighting technologies
- Even with extensive operation over long periods of time, LEP's electrodeless quartz lamps do not display electrode failures or wall darkening that affects traditional metal halide and HPS lamps.
- The unique construction of LEP's solid-state RF generator produces a rugged device made to withstand extended, continuous use.
- Unlike LED luminaires which require several devices to generate sufficient light, LEP uses a single source, thereby reducing failure points and increasing overall system reliability.
LEP System Lumen Maintenance
An LEP system for general lighting applications is rated for 70% lumen maintenance (L70) after 50,000 hours of use. Unlike typical HID light sources, LEP sources do not need to be de-rated for the length of operating cycles.
In comparison, a typical 400W metal halide lamp yields a 50% survival rate after only 18,000 hours of use. Its lifetime is de-rated by as much as 25% for lamp orientation, and up to 50% for short operating cycles.
The extended life of Light Emitting Plasma compared to other technologies results in dramatically lower maintenance costs.
