Ambient temperature and Ambient environment for high bay light

Ambient temperature and Ambient environment for high bay light

LED lights might be very resistant to weather conditions, but they are not indestructible. Some units are designed for specific conditions but some others are able to support industrial environments. In this post, we want to provide you a general recommendation for your LED fixtures, high bays, to be more specific. 

First, let talk about the environmental conditions created by its own use and function. Well, how are High bay lights affected by heat? We can say that higher temperatures generally reduce light output and life spam in the most dramatic cases. This can result in overdriving the unit and malfunctioning of some systems during extended periods under a high temperature ambient. So, we can conclude that the cooler the environment, the higher an LED's light output will be.

Prolonged heat can significantly shorten the useful life of any High bay light. Higher ambient temperature leads to higher junction temperatures, which can increase the degradation rate of the unit. And if the damage by head continues it possibly will cause the light output to irreversibly decrease over the long term at a faster rate than at lower temperatures.

For high ambient temperature setting, we need to ensure proper heat sink inside the lights because the prolonged heat accumulation will cause the damage of the LEDs high bays. So, the effective thermal management system reduces the heat resistance and gives LED lighting more useful life since the heat accumulation inside the lights is reduced.

Of course, LED high bay are the best option compared to other lights that are becoming obsolete and harmful for the environment. We used the best technology to accomplish the best product possible for any location and project. Our newest High bay light, Tales series, has new features and it has been designed as a reliable product with the best warranty of Hyperlite.
