The Working Principle of Induction Light

Magnetic induction lighting are primarily fluorescents lamps with electromagnets wrapped around a section of the lamp tube.High frequency energy from the electronic ballast(generator) blasts through wires wrapped in a coil around the ferrite inductor, creating powerful magnet shocks.what is induction lighting (1)

The induction coil produces a very strong magnetic field which travels through the glass and excites the mercury atoms in the interior which are provided by a pellet of amalgam(solid mercury).

The mercury atoms emit UV light and, just as in a fluorescent rube, the UV light is up-converted to visible light by the phosphor coating on the inside of the tube.

Disruptive lighting technology to the conventional lighting and the lamp does not rely on brning filaments or electrodes.

Electrodelessly,the Low-frequency Electrodeless Lamp (LEL) relies on the fundamental principles of electro magnetic induction and gas discharge to create light.

The Advantages:

ELX has built up its irreplaceable position on its trade by the excellent performance on different occasions.Factories,gyms,gas stations,tunnels and other places with high consumption of electric are the most commonly place the induction use for.


Features of Induction Lighting Technology:

Life of lamp and ballast up to 100.000 hours.

Increased lumen efficiency of up to 85Lm/W compared with average incandescent, metal halide lamps and current energy saving lamps, respectively saving up to 85%,50%,40%.

Features of Induction Technology (2)

Induction lightings color rendering index is rated more than 80%.

2,000hours less than 5%,20,000hours less than 15%.

Induction lighting is kind on your eyes with no flickering and less eye fatigue observed operating frequency is 140KHZ to 250KHZ.

Mercury amalgamation technology will remain in its solid state throughout the life of the globe even if the globe is broken. With 99% coefficient of recovery makes it a real environmental friendly lighting source.

Working surface temperature below 80℃ and low thermal sensitivity would not cause serious light decay, stability decreased or aging of reflector.

No matter what changes the supply voltage, the working voltage would not change, particularly suitable for places with large power fluctuations.

Large light emitting area, brightness scattered, less glare, avoid light pollution.


Induction Lighting history

Generation 1:Origin(1891)

The Legendary Nikola Tesla demonstrated the wireless transfer of power to electrodeless Nikola Teslalamps in his lectures,and subsequently patented a system of light and power distribution on it.He predicted a new lighting technology based on this principles will be "much more economical and yielding a light of indescribable beauty and softness than the traditional incandescent lighting"

(Tesia,The World 1929)

Generation 2:Laboratory(1907)

Nobel winner J.J.Thomson invented the high frequency induction lamp.Limited by the technologies of that time,the lamp was only a laboratory darling.

Generation 3:Evolution(1990s)

1990 PHLIPS,1994 GE,1996 Panasonic,1998 OSRAM,respectively launched their induction lamps,with no more than 150W,often unstable,costly,sometimes defective,lacked of wide and competitive commercial potentials.

Generation 4:Revolution(ELX in 2011)

ELX awed the world by launching the revolutionary "ELX" Induction Lamp series,up to 400W,with superior performance,exceptional stability,and the most competitive cost,an unlimited potential for mass commercial use.
