In 2013, the USA’s biggest game of the year, The Super Bowl was halted for over half an hour due to a power outage, leaving spectators, players, and TV viewers in the dark with no football and no explanation why.
Since then, some of the world class stadiums bring in LED sports lighting system,especially supplied by Philips and Musco.
Till today, more and more end users/owners of stadiums plan to upgrade to LED Sports Lighting System. There will be many factors to be considered when choosing the optimum lighting solution for your sports facilities.
1.One-for-one retrofit of Metal Halide/HID fixtures
Re-use of existing infrastructure will save money while upgrading LED sports lighting system. Considering the existing Metal Halide/HID 2000W fixtures are of lightweight and small size, most ordinary LED sports luminaires in the market will not be able to retrofit them directly. If ordinary sports luminaires are used, it will bring a higher cost of labor cost of electrician.
2.Maintenance Cost of sports floodlight
All sports lighting systems will require maintenance to prevent failure and ensure sports events are successfully and safely proceeded. Accumulation of dirt on lamps will also affect lamp life and floodlight output. A smart and dependable lighting system will lower maintenance costs.
