Why is the induction lamp compared with MH lamp?

Best Answers

There are several things you need to look at to determine this: Efficacy - How much light do you get for a given power, rated as Lumens per Watt (LPW). Induction is 70–80 LPW initial; MH ranges from roughly 65–120 LPW initial depending on ballast and lamp wattage and technology (quartz, ceramic, etc.). read more

MH lamp is most extensively used among the HID lamps with the best combined characteristics and similar lighting efficency, color temperature and CRI to the induction lamp, however its lifetime, lumen maintenance rate, lighting color result and hot restart is not comparable to the induction lamp. read more

Metal Halide is a more conventional source, and being HID, a lot of light is generated from a small source (the arc tube), so the optics can be substantially smaller, and are generally more efficient than induction. read more

Induction Lighting has high visual acuity (visible) lumens per watt of 191. Metal Halide has a visual acuity lumen rating of 80 per watt. Due to the high visual acuity lumens per watt, with Induction Lighting, you can use a 150 watt induction bulb in lieuof a 400 watt metal halide. Highly energy efficient. read more
