Madison Lighting offers several options for energy efficient lighting to the commercial markets across the U.S.
It provides comprehensive analysis and full project management to its clients as well as assistance in obtaining any applicable Federal and State tax incentives and Utility Rebates.
T5 / T8 Lighting
Our T5 and T8 Retro-kits are a phenomenal way to convert a building's lighting to a more energy efficient solution without having to change out the entire fixture.T5's offer high quality lighting and achieve the same foot candles for less wattage than other more inefficient forms of lighting such as T12's.
The T5 and T8 lamps are an increasingly popular development in fluorescent lighting.T5 lamps have a diameter equal to 5 times an eighth of an inch, or 5/8". These lamps are approximately 40% smaller than T8 lamps, which are one inch in diameter, and almost 60% smaller than T12 lamps, which are 1½" in diameter.
Inducting lighting consists of a fluorescent type bulb without the metal electrical contacts used to conduct electricity from the fixture to the light-emitting gas inside the bulb. The lamps are capable of saving a generous 40% over their fluorescent counterparts, and some models boast a life expectancy of up to 100,000 hours.
Induction is the process of transmitting energy via an electro-magnetic field. The light emitting gas inside the bulbs is excited, or energized when located within a sufficiently strong EMF, or electro-magnetic field, which is induced by passing alternating current through a coil, or inductor. Advantages of induction lighting are better color rendition, better control of the bulbs color range from daylight to soft white and longer life.
LED's are another form of efficient lighting technology.The light absorbed by the filters in the conventional products is essentially wasted, and because of this waste, the luminous efficacy of LED signs and signals is often higher than those using conventional white light sources.LED lighting systems continue to evolve rapidly, and specific benchmarks for performance (e.g., luminous efficacy, light output) are being exceeded on a regular basis.
