Human vision

  • Retina consists of rod and cone cells
  • Cone cells are adapted to detect colors and function in bright light
  • Human retina contains about 6 million cone cells
  • Rod cells are more sensitive, but do not detect color as well, adapted for low light
  • Human retina contains about 125 million rod cells, more sensitive to blue & relatively insensitive to wave lengths above 640 nm (red)

lm-03

Photopic vs. Scotopic vision

Scotopic vision

  • Monochromatic or night vision
  • Response curves used in light meter does not take scotopic vision into account

lm-04

Photopic vision

  • Human vision under well lit conditions
  • Response curves used in light meter is set to the spectral sensitivity of photopic vision

lm-05

Scotopic/Photopic Ratio

  • The ratio of the scotopic light vs. the photopic light is called the S/P ratio
  • Determines the apparent visual brightness of a light source
  • The S/P ratio of a lamp is important
    • Provides a number which can be used to multiply the output reading of a lamp using conventional meter to determine how much light is useful to the human eye (visually Effective Lumen) a lamp produces

S / P Example

  • S/P ratio of LPS (SOX) lamp is 0.35, because lamp is almost monochromatic, produces its vast majority of light in the yellow region

lm-06

Comparison of Ultra-Tech™ Lamps with HID

  • Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lighting lamps are scotopically enhanced, therefore appear brighter to the eye and enhance visual acuity

120W SOX vs 120W Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lighting

  • 120W Sodium (50~140 Lumens/W), vs 120W Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lighting (95~105 Lumens/W) lamps
    • 120W LPS: 120W x 140L/W = 16,800x0.35=5,880 lumens of light useful to human vision
  • The S/P ratio of a lamp is important
    • Provides a number which can be used to multiply the output reading of a lamp using conventional meter to determine how much light is useful to the human eye (visually Effective Lumen) a lamp produces
    • 120W Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lighting: 120 x 80L/W = 10,200 x 1.96 = 18,816 lumens of light useful to human vision -X3 useful light for the same amount of energy not counting generator consumption
  • This is why you can use lower wattage Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lamps to achieve same or better results with 50% to 85% energy savings

400W Sodium vs. 200W Ultra-Tech™ Induction Lighting

  • 400W MH x 54.6 L/W = 21,840 L x 1.49 = 32,541 useful lumens
  • 200W x 81 L/W = 16,200 L x 1.96 = 31,752 useful lumen

Introducing Ultra-Efficient Lighting from Ultra-Tech™


 

Here’s how you can reduce high intensity lighting costs by as much as 85%! The all-new ingenious Ultra-Tech™ lamps combine modern drivers (ballasts) and phosphorous coatings with Nikola Tesla’s  magnetic induction coils to convert high frequency energy into full spectrum light.

The system acts like a transformer with the inductor as the primary coil, while mercury atoms form a single turn secondary coil. Electrical energy is coupled through the glass wall to excite the mercury atoms.

A variation of this technology uses a light bulb shaped glass lamp with a test tube shaped centre cavity. The glass is phosphor coated on the inside and filled with inert gas. The induction coil is wound around a shaft inserted into the central cavity that is excited by high frequency energy provided by an external electronic driver (ballast).

This produces an exceptionally long life span since there are no internal electrodes. Extremely high energy conversion from the high frequency electronic ballasts yields 98% efficiency. This translates into monumental cost savings up to 85% in both energy and maintenance costs when compared other technologies including LEDs.

Like conventional fluorescent lamps, varying the phosphor coating provides different color temperatures and specific frequency output. Ballasts rectify incoming AC voltage while solid state circuitry converts this DC current to a very high frequency between 2.65 and 13.6 MHz (depending on lamp). This high frequency feeds the coil wrapped around the inductor’s ferrite core, creating a strong magnet field in the inductor. This couples the energy through the glass and into the mercury atoms inside the tube.

Ballasts control circuitry regulates the frequency and current to the induction coil to insure stable lamp operation. Ultra-Tech™ lamps do not require a worm-up or cool-dawn. Microprocessor controlled ballast circuits operate near 98% efficiency, resulting in only a 2% energy loss compared with 10¬% to 30% wasted in traditional “core and coil” designs.

Ultra-Tech™ lamps are rated at 100,000 hours with over 85% energy savings, and better quality light. The ultra-strong lamp tube is made of hard silicon glass with a melting point of 1600 degrees Celsius. The IC Ballast more intelligent, smaller, lighter and longer lasting than conventional electronic ballasts. The design is more stable and engineered to last 5-7 times longer than conventional electronic ballasts.

The magnetic loop technology has superior stability and is better shielded from electromagnetic interference. The ballasts are certified for the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, India, and Western Europe. (UL, UL-C, CCC, CE, CB). Lamps and ballasts are designed to operate in temperatures between -40 C to +60 C.

A Range of Types and Wattages

  • Separate lamp and ballast style, round shaped (TX) are available in: 40W, 60W, 80W, 120W, 150W, 200W, 250W, 300W, and 400W.  The same wattages are available in rectangular bulbs.
  • Compact style combined lamp and ballast (110 to 220 volt only) available in low wattages of 15W, 23W and 40W.

Lamps are engineered with no electrode to last over 11 years operating 24 hours per day. The Color Rendering Index (CRI) is above 90 with color temperatures of 2,000K to 10,500K. The higher CRI makes objects look bright, clear and natural. When the luminous efficiency is above 90Lm/W, color rendering is perfect. It is easier to differentiate colors with a higher CRI

Ownership Costs

Total ownership costs include capital, energy, and maintenance costs. Ultra-Tech™’s induction lamp technology is engineered to last 100,000 hours or 11 years while metal halide lamp technology lasts only 20,000 hours or 1.56 years. Metal halide lamp systems would be changed 5 times in same 11 years using Ultra-Tech™ technology.  Typical return on investment ranges from 1 to 5 years depending on the project and energy costs.  LED has not been field tested long enough to substantiate claims of 50,000 or 100,000 hour lifecycles.
