LED Public Lighting Renovation and Lighting Redesign
The revolution in industrial and commercial lighting is leading a series of new Led Public lighting(CLASSIC) systems, which are replacing traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps. As more and more organizations seek to realize this transformation, their first question is whether they should transform the existing lighting system to utilize LED public lighting and control systems or completely turn to a new redesign of their entire lighting configuration. Like many other facility-related issues, this decision will depend on personal preferences, the facility itself and budgetary considerations.
If your work budget is limited and the facility does not have unique lighting requirements, renovation may be sufficient. Existing lamps can be simply replaced by LED public lighting and independent drivers. The end result will be equivalent or better lighting and immediate reduction in utility costs, but maintenance costs may be higher than full or partial redesign. Compared with traditional bulbs, LED public lighting has stronger directivity. Replacing the existing bulbs will not solve the problem of light distribution, nor will it eliminate any shadow generated by the existing design.
The next step in replacing lamps only is to replace all existing lamps with lamps specific to LED public lighting. New LED public lighting and lamps may produce more lighting than previous generation lamps, and this option may create a superimposed environment. In addition, it is not easy to increase advanced control over LED public lighting by replacing lamps, such as dimming and customizing individual lamps.
Redesign of a complete lighting system will bring the highest upfront cost to an organization, but cost recovery through public facilities and maintenance cost savings can be achieved more quickly through redesign than through simple renovation. The design engineer will analyze the space to be illuminated and draw a customized plan, including a mix of different LED public lighting, to achieve the best lighting for the facility. LED public lighting has a variety of light distribution modes, which can be mixed and matched to uniformly light facilities with minimum dark spots and shadows. Engineers can also integrate advanced control systems into new LED public lighting designs, enabling facility operators to selectively dim or adjust individual lamps to change facility lighting to conform to specific or changing uses of the facility.
In the past ten years, LED public lighting technology has developed rapidly. Decisions to retrofit or redesign lighting systems should be based on the latest available information. At that time, manufacturers and designers of LED public lighting systems also accumulated rich experience to help their customers make the best lighting choices that meet their needs and do not exceed the budget. This experience extends to the application of specific color temperature and color rendering index (CRI) to the new lighting system, which can improve employee morale and performance by better matching the natural sunshine throughout the day.
