Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Light sources The development of electrical power well over a century ago revolutionised artificial lighting. It was then that the flame was replaced as the main source of artificial light in favour of electrically powered lighting. Since that time, the history of electric lighting has been one of continuous development punctuated by a series of major innovations.
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Light sources Commercial, industrial, and retail facilities use several different light sources. Each lamp type has particular advantages; selecting the appropriate source depends on installation requirements, life-cycle cost, color qualities, dimming capability, and the effect wanted. Types of lamps that are commonly used: incandescent fluorescent high intensity discharge mercury vapor metal halide high pressure sodium low pressure sodium LED lamps Source efficacy

Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Incandescent Lamps Incandescent lamps are one of the oldest electric lighting technologies available. With efficacies ranging from 6 to 24 lumens per watt, incandescent lamps are the least energy- efficient electric light source and have a relatively short life (750- 2500 hours). Light is produced by passing a current through a tungsten filament, causing it to become hot and glow. With use, the tungsten slowly evaporates, eventually causing the filament to break. Common incandescent lamp shapes Emit radiation mainly in the visible region Bulb contains vacuum or gas filling Efficacy: 12 lumen / Watt Color rendering index: 1A Color temperature: 2500 – 2700 K Lamp life <2000 hrs
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Tungsten-Halogen Lamps The tungsten halogen lamp is another type of incandescent lamp. In a halogen lamp, a small quartz capsule contains the filament and a halogen gas. The small capsule size allows the filament to operate at a higher temperature, which produces light at a higher efficacy than standard incandescents. The halogen gas combines with the evaporated tungsten, redepositing it on the filament. This process extends the life of the filament and keeps the bulb wall from blackening and reducing light output. Advantages: More compact Longer life More and whiter light Disadvantages: Cost more Increased IR and UV Handling problems Efficacy: 18 lumens/Watt Color rendering index: 1A Color temperature: warm Lamp life < 4000 hrs
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Fluorescent lamps Fluorescent lamps are the most commonly used commercial light source. Their popularity can be attributed to their relatively high efficacy, diffuse light distribution characteristics, and long operating life. Fluorescent lamp construction consists of a glass tube with the following features: filled with an argon or argon-krypton gas and a small amount of mercury coated on the inside with phosphors equipped with an electrode at both ends Different types (T12, T10, T8 and T5) differing in diameter and efficiency Most efficient at ambient temperature of 20-30 oC, Features: Halo-phosphate Efficacy – 80 lumens/Watt (HF gear increases this by 10%) Color Rendering Index –2-3 Color Temperature – Any Lamp Life – 7-15,000 hours
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Fluorescent lamps Fluorescent lamps provide light by the following process: An electric discharge (current) is maintained between the electrodes through the mercury vapor and inert gas. This current excites the mercury atoms, causing them to emit non-visible ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This UV radiation is converted into visible light by the phosphors lining the tube. Discharge lamps (such as fluorescent) require a ballast to provide correct starting voltage and to regulate the operating current after the lamp has started. Full-size fluorescent lamps are available in several shapes, including straight, U-shaped, and circular configurations
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Compact Fluorescent lamps Manufactured since the early 1980s, they are a long-lasting, energy-efficient substitute for the incandescent lamp. The wattages of the compact fluorescents range from 5 to 40 replacing incandescent lamps ranging from 25 to 150 watts and provide energy savings of 60 to 75 percent. Life expectancy of a compact fluorescent is about 10 times that of a standard incandescent lamp However, the use of compact fluorescent lamps is very limited in dimming applications.
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources High-Intensity Discharge Lamps (HID) Originally developed for outdoor and industrial applications, HID lamps are also used in office, retail, and other indoor applications There are several advantages to HID sources: relatively long life (5,000 to 24,000+ hrs) relatively high lumen output per watt relatively small in physical size However, the following operating limitations must also be considered. First, HID lamps require time to warm up, the average warm-up time is 2 to 6 minutes. Second, HID lamps have a "restrike" time, meaning a momentary interruption of current or a voltage drop too low to maintain the arc will extinguish the lamp.This process of restriking takes between 5 and 15 minutes Therefore, good applications of HID lamps are areas where lamps are not switched on and off intermittently.
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Mercury Vapor discharge lamps Clear mercury vapor lamps, which produce a blue-green light, consist of a mercury- vapor arc tube with tungsten electrodes at both ends. These lamps have the lowest efficacies of the HID family, rapid lumen depreciation, and a low color rendering index. Because of these characteristics, other HID sources have replaced mercury vapor lamps in many applications Oldest HID lamp Consists of: arc tube with mercury and argon gas and quartz envelope, third electrode, outer phosphor coated bulb, outer glass envelope Long life and low initial costs Very poor efficacy: 30 – 65 lumens/Watt Color rendering index: 3 Color temperature: intermediate Lamp life: 16000 – 24000 hours
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Metal Halide discharge lamps These lamps are similar to mercury vapor lamps but use metal halide additives inside the arc tube along with the mercury and argon. These additives enable the lamp to produce more visible light per watt with improved color rendition. Wattages range from 32 to 2,000, offering a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications. The efficacy of metal halide lamps ranges from 50 to 115 lumens per watt Works similar to tungsten halogen lamps Largest choice of color, size and rating Better efficacy than other HID lamps: 80 lumen/Watt Require high voltage ignition pulse but some have third electrode for starting Color rendering index: 1A – 2 Color temperature: 3000 – 6000 K Lamp life: 6000 – 20,000 hours The color may vary from lamp to lamp and may shift over the life of the lamp and during dimming.
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources High Pressure Sodium discharge lamps The high pressure sodium (HPS) lamp is widely used for outdoor and industrial applications. Its higher efficacy makes it a better choice than metal halide for these applications, especially when good color rendering is not a priority. The efficacy of the lamp is very high ( as much as 140 lumens per watt. For example, a 400-watt high pressure sodium lamp produces 50,000 initial lumens Used in outdoor and industrial applications Consist of: ballast, high- voltage electronic starter, ceramic arc tube, xenon gas filling, sodium, mercury No starting electrodes High efficacy: 80 – 140 lumen/Watt Color rendering index: 1 - 2 Color temperature: warm Lamp life < 24,000 hrs Sodium, the major element used, produces the "golden" color that is characteristic of HPS lamps.
Training manual Lighting concepts – Lighting sources Low Pressure Sodium discharge lamps LPS lamps are the most efficacious light sources, but they produce the poorest quality light of all the lamp types. Being a monochromatic light source, all colors appear black, white, or shades of gray under an LPS source. LPS lamps are available in wattages ranging from 18-180. Commonly included in the HID family Highest efficacy: 100 - 200 lumen/Watt Poorest quality light: colors appear black, white or grey shades Limited to outdoor applications Efficacy: Color rendering index: 3 Color temperature: yellow Lamp life < 16,000 hours LPS lamp use has been generally limited to outdoor applications such as security or street lighting and indoor
