1 by1 retrofit metal halide with LED

Metal halide lamps, often referred to as metal halide bulbs or fixtures, are a type of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamp that produces light by passing an electric arc through a mixture of gases and metal halide salts. These lamps are commonly used for indoor and outdoor lighting applications where high levels of brightness and color rendering are required.

AIKO engineers are working now, and we pushed out ASP04 Series LED Sports Floodlights that can truly replace metal halide 1 by 1.

 Here’s a guide on how to retrofit metal halide lights with LED one by one:

  1. Weight and surface area

The poles you currently use have been designed for a specific weight and sail area. Increasing either, or both of these could have quite dramatic effects in high wind. Make sure that neither of them exceeds what is currently used, or check the original poles drawings to make sure the increase can be accommodated in the existing design. Surface area is the total area of the outer surface of a three-dimensional object.

2.Enough levels of illumination
Assess accurately what the current lux levels are of your field, decide what you need.

3.CRI requirement will depend on what level of sport is being played. For most of training and club applications Ra>70 CRI is suitable. If the games are to be televised or it is amateur level with a small ball i.e. cricket, then 90 CRI may be needed.

The following is the guide to 1 by 1 retrofit metal halide with LED

  1. Evaluate Existing Metal HalideFixtures:

Inspect the condition of each metal halide fixture, including the housing, wiring, and components such as ballasts and ignitors. Ensure that they are suitable for retrofitting or replacement.

  1. Select LED Retrofit Kits or LED Fixtures:

Choose between LED retrofit kits or complete LED fixtures based on your budget, preferences, and existing fixture condition. Retrofit kits are designed to fit into existing metal halide fixtures, while LED fixtures involve replacing the entire fixture.

  1. Turn Off Power:

Before starting any work, turn off power to the metal halide fixture at the breaker box to avoid electrical hazards.

  1. Remove Metal HalideBulb and Ballast:

Carefully remove the metal halide bulb from the fixture, ensuring that it has cooled down to avoid burns. Disconnect and remove the ballast and any other metal halide components from the fixture.

  1. Install LED Retrofit Kit or Fixture:

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install the LED retrofit kit or fixture into the empty metal halide fixture housing. Securely mount the LED components and ensure proper alignment.

  1. Connect Wiring:

Connect the wiring of the LED retrofit kit or fixture according to the provided instructions. Follow proper wiring techniques and ensure connections are secure to prevent electrical issues.

  1. Test Functionality:

Turn the power back on and test the functionality of the newly installed LED retrofit or fixture. Ensure that the light turns on and operates as expected.

  1. Adjust Lighting Angle and Settings:

Adjust the angle and settings of the LED fixture to achieve the desired lighting distribution and intensity on the target area. LED fixtures often come with adjustable features to customize lighting direction and output.

  1. Repeat for Each Fixture:

Repeat the retrofitting process for each metal halide fixture one by one until all fixtures have been converted to LED. Take care to follow the same steps for consistency and safety.

  1. Dispose of Metal HalideComponents Properly:

Dispose of the removed metal halide bulbs, ballasts, and other components according to local regulations and guidelines for electronic waste recycling.

  1. Perform Regular Maintenance:

Regularly inspect and maintain the newly installed LED fixtures to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Clean lenses and fixtures as needed to remove dirt and debris that may affect lightin.
