Energy Saving Controller for
Conventional HID Lighting Systems
Why replace highly efficient High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and Metal Halide (MH) fixtures with expensive new technology fixtures when EES's Universal Magnetic Ballast Controller (UMBC) can provide continuous dimming of legacy fixtures with a simple external connection? UMBC works with lighting monitoring and management systems connected to conventional (magnetically ballasted) HID fixtures of 70-400 Watts. Energy conversation of up to 50% is possible by managing illumination to customer needs or applicable standards.
EES is a component supplier to OEM's of lighting management/monitoring systems and fixture manufacturers. Control systems are connected directly to the UMBC. The UMBC is then connected to the fixture by means of the twist-lock connector of cobrahead fixtures, or with a two-wire connection to parking (shoebox) fixtures. There is no need to open the fixture, significantly reducing installation costs.
Many solutions offered to improve HID lighting efficiency require abandonment of investment in assets and infrastructure supporting in excess of 15.2 million Industrial and 54.9 million Outdoor Stationary HID lamps in the US. Substantially all competing technologies in this market require complete replacement of existing HID fixtures with e-ballasted or LED fixtures in order to provide energy conservation by dimming. This replacement is not only expensive, but results in loss of the customer's investment in physical assets, inventory and personnel skills associated with the current infrastructure. Any new technology must recapture this loss before breaking even.
The fact remains that magnetically ballasted HID lighting is the most cost- and energy-efficient technology available today for higher power (>10,000 lumens) lighting applications. Dimming of these fixtures affords significant additional energy savings.
We invite you to explore the use of the EES's UMBC to cost-effectively integrate legacy HID fixtures in your building or outdoor lighting management system.
