LED Parking Lot Lights: Definitive guide

Why is it named parking lot lighting&area lighting?

Parking lot lighting is a general term used to describe outdoor lighting that is mounted on a light pole and stands on the ground in parking lots, sidewalks, driveways, streets, and around buildings(like shop mall, warehouse). This type of outdoor illumination is typically used to commercial arealight used by vehicles and pedestrians. The most common attribute is to attach the luminaire to the poles. Sometimes a light post is not limited to installing a regional fixture, but two, four, or even more. LED parking lot light was born from the demand of parking lots lighting, its main purpose is to improve safety and provide security. As we all know, the exterior DLC parkinglot especially needs bright fixtures at night. Why have these requirements?  The led area light can provide the driver with timely direction identification and identification of other vehicles passing by, and enhance the confidence of pedestrians getting on and off at night. The security guard needs sufficient light to detect suspicious activity with surveillance cameras. The hiding place of the prisoner can be reduced only if the area is illuminated with sufficient light and no dark spots.

Why suggest you replace your HID area lights?

HID

At present, high-pressure sodium lamps, (fluorescent) high-pressure mercury lamps, xenon lamps, and metal halide lamps are all HID lamps. They all have similar characteristics. Among them, metal halide lamps are the most common in cart parking lots, roads and other areas application. 540 watt metal halide equal 300 watt parking lot fixtures -Icecrown9.  The metal halide bulb has high luminous efficiency (65-100lm/w), long life (15,000-25,000hrs), good color rendering (RA>80), compact structure and stable performance. It combines the advantages of other HIDs to overcome the drawbacks of these lamps and brings together the main advantages of gas discharge sources. However, it is also the same. The filler in the lamp contains mercury and metal halides. Some of these substances are harmful substances. Inadvertent handling can cause pollution to the production environment and damage the health of workers. When the arc tube is exhausted, a trace amount of mercury vapor is discharged, and if it is not handled properly, it is directly discharged into the atmosphere. When the lamp used is broken, it will pollute the environment.

LED

LED, light-emitting diodes, are solid-state semiconductor devices that convert electricity directly into light. The LED light source has the advantages of using a low-voltage power source, low energy consumption, strong applicability, super stability, short response time, no pollution to the environment, and multi-color light emission. Led parking lot light fixture ideal for the parking lot, lane or any other commercial area lighting.

In conclusion, although the price of LED parking lights is more expensive than HID lamps, many customers choose to maintain HID lamps in retrofit kits instead of replacing them. With the rapid development of technology, XSY lighting has been able to improve performance while reducing the price of LED products, we are pursuing the sale of lamps that satisfy the customer. Please think carefully, HID price is cheap, but you need to replace the ballast and light bulbs frequently, which is undoubtedly increased maintenance costs in the later period. While led shoebox lights are expensive to buy, they require little maintenance actually saving more. They are suitable for replacing HID, HPS and Metal Halide (MH) from 250 watts to 1000 watts. In the long run, LED parking lot light to win.

How to turn HID lamps into LED parkinglot lights?

As a professional LED lighting service team, we definitely consider this for you. Can replaces HID with led area lights on the original pole? XSY offers four mount brackets to assist in replacing fixtures to meet different poles. You can install one, two, four or more shoe box lights on the head of the pole to meet the lighting in the area.

The slipfitter can be inserted directly into the top of the round pole and supports angle adjustment. If you want to install it on a square pole? The extruded arm can be implemented. Of course, if you also want to have an angle adjustment, then choose add slip fitter+extruded arm. U brackets can be used for surface mounts, such as wall mounting (use as flood light), so consider using it when your traditional fixture is near the wall. With the extra mounting bracket, there is no need to remove the pole, and it is more cost-effective to repeat the existing pole.

LED pole lights are mainly used for general area lighting that requires high-output light. The typical light distribution options for LED parking lot lights area 90°,Type II, Type III, Type IV, Type V. (as shown in the figure) Another factor to determine the appropriate LED pole light fixture is the mounting height, anywhere from 10 feet to 50 feet.

Tips and Suggestions to purchase LED area lights

  1. Determine the lumens you need. Watt (W) is the actual amount of energy used, and lumen (lm) stands for brightness
  2. Focus on the driver. In this section, we can support your driver is not unique. Meanwell driver, Sosen driver, and Inventronics driver for choice. We can also provide you with an additional choice of lightning protectors, which are 10KV to 20KV.
  3. Color temperature (K) also needs to distinguish, when it comes to LED colors, a low color temperature indicates a warm white, while a medium temperature produces a neutral white, and a high temperature produces a cool white.
  4. Beam Angle: this represents the light of the lens and the direction of the controlled emission. Thinner beam angles mean denser spots of light and a smaller area of illumination.
  5. Decide if you need a photocell or not. Dusk to dawn sensors on the light help conserves energy.

Conclusion

When deciding whether to switch to LED parking lot lights or stick to traditional light sources, lighting performance is extremely important and often overlooked. Before doing this, you must be clear about whether your current lamp can properly illuminate your space. As long as you need us, you just need to give us the layout, and XSY will show the Dialux scheme for you.
