In the communication with customers, we often hear such questions: How far can your lamps illuminate? How much area can your lamps illuminate? In other words, I used a certain brand of 500-watt lamps before, please make a quotation directly according to the number of lamps I provided…
In fact, there are no correct answers to these! If you purchase LED stadium lamps based on the above points, the consequences are often insufficient brightness of the lamps and frequent problems, requiring constant repairs.
Because sports lighting is not conventional lighting, it cannot be solved with a single quotation. Common lamps and lanterns are mostly flood type, with a relatively large light-emitting angle, which is suitable for lighting in close-range or lower places, but once a high light pole is used, or lights are installed on the roof, or light distribution in large stadiums It’s totally two different things.
Like the power, the large-angle lamps have a larger range of illumination, but the distance will be shorter, while the small-angle lamps have a smaller range of illumination, but the distance will be farther.
In fact, how far and how large the lamps can illuminate is not the core evaluation criteria for stadium lighting, but the illuminance required for the use of stadiums is the key.
What standards should football field lighting meet?
The standard stipulates that the standard of lighting fixtures should be confirmed according to the function of the football field, which is roughly divided into 6 levels. The illuminance of training and entertainment activities is 200lux; amateur games 300lux; professional games 500lux; usually TV broadcasts national games and international games 1000lux; National competitions and major international competitions 1400lux; HDTV broadcasts major national competitions and major international competitions 2000lux.
Therefore, the same 11-person standard football field lighting, if the stadium is only used for entertainment and fitness, then the average illuminance can reach 200lux, but to use professional competition level, it must reach 500lux. Then the requirements for the power and luminous angle of the lamps will also be different.
In addition, the size of the stadium is different, the installation location is different, the use requirements are different, and the quality of the lamps and the control requirements for glare are also different. The same lamp will have different light-emitting angles, and the light distribution effect will naturally be different. In some venues, the same power may be matched with lamps of different angles.
If the installed lighting does not meet the standard requirements, it is easy for the athletes to experience uncomfortable feelings, and it is difficult to look far away, which especially interferes with the experience of playing football.
If the light distribution effect is not good, there will be uneven illumination, such as the situation that the middle is very dark and the outside is very bright. In addition, the number of lights in the venue should not only be implemented in accordance with national standards, but also be adjusted according to the requirements of customers, or add more lights or reduce lights.
As a 12-year LED sports lighting brand, AIKO not only has its own factory but also has its own professional sports lighting engineers. According to the customer’s situation, through professional sports lighting simulation software, AIKO can calculate a reasonable light distribution scheme to solve the uniformity of sports lighting.
From traditional metal halide lamps to today’s LED stadium lights, AIKO has been able to stand in many more well-known sports lighting brands in the past 12 years, relying on the persistence of quality and the long-term vision of the development of the sports industry.
In addition, there are corresponding standards for the selection of the height of the light pole.
According to the practical experience of most outdoor football field lighting fixtures, it is more appropriate to choose a light pole with a height of 6-8 meters for the futsal field. It is not easy to cause dizziness and interfere with the visual judgment of football players.
The total length of the outdoor 7-a-side football field is 65-68 meters, and the total width is 45-48 meters. As the area of the site increases, the height of the light pole can be confirmed to be 12-15 meters according to the type and power of the lighting fixtures used.
The total length of the outdoor 11-a-side football field is 100-110 meters and the total width is 64-75 meters. According to the two different ways of installing light poles on both sides of the football field and installing light poles in the four corners, the height of the light poles is 20-25 meters, of which the 20-meter light pole is suitable for the installation of lights on both sides, and the 25-meter high pole light pole Applicable to the four-corner lighting method.
AIKO knows that if you want to truly become a brand, it is the continuous ability to win the trust of consumers and have the preferences of consumers. Continuous product research is required, as well as the ultimate pursuit of user experience.
