What are the differences between Halogen, HID, Metal Halide and LED sports light?

When people say I want to change my lamps to led, what lamps they are changing from? The answers are Halogen and Metal Halide and HID.

Traditional halogen lamps use a filament which heats up as the electricity passes through.  This glows, producing light and a lot of heat. The heat is all out the front of the lamp so the housing can be made from any material (metal, aluminium, plastic etc) and the front lens (typically glass) manages the heat.  This means the lamps can be quite small. Quite small size means easy installation.

Metal Halide and Sodium Vapour are discharge lamps, much like a fluorescent tube. Like halogens, the heat comes out the front, allowing for light weigh. But a metal halide lamp will lose 25% of its original performance within the first 250 hours of use. What’s more, once they turn off they have a significant re-start time of about 10 minutes.

In a word, traditional halogen lamps and Metal Hdalide, HID have the advantages of small size, but have to be replaced regularly. This can be a nuisance, particularly when mounted 25m in the air.

LED sports lights are long in life spam. Also, they have very high efficicency to save electrical cost. A well designed LED system is likely to provide the best long-term investment. But one problem will be that LED sports lights are much more heavier than Halogen and Metal Halide and HID. So when considering upgrading your metal halide fittings with LED, ensure that the poles are capable of supporting the extra weight and sail area.
