Plan Hoot is proud to announce the offering of LED retrofit kits which can be used to convert HID lighting fixtures to high quality and economical luminaires. They are a money-saving way to upgrade current fixtures and are easy to install.
LEDs are much more efficient and longer lasting than Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting systems. Energy costs can be reduced by as much as 80%. Some LED lighting systems qualify for energy efficiency rebate incentive programs offered by local utilities. LEDs also have a higher Color Rendering Index (CRI), which means a better quality of light. The CRI of HPS lights is very low and MH lights lose their average light output over time.
Installation of these products can be done by simply removing the old lamp and ballast and replacing them with a LED plate and driver. In most cases, a mounting bracket with a mogul base is used to support the LED plate.
The best way to determine the comparable wattage of LEDs needed to replace old lamps is to divide the wattage of the current HID lamps by 3 or 4. LED retrofit kits can be used to upgrade the following types of light fixtures:
– High bay
– Low bay
– Wall pack
