When powerful LEDs became commercially available, RGB floodlights were one of the first applications where this technology was truly embraced. Replacing halogen, metal halide and high-pressure-sodium lamps in floodlight applications, RGB floodlights offer a number of benefits that conventional lamp technology was not able to.
Where RGB Floodlights Excel
When compared to their conventional counterparts, RGB floodlights offer a number of benefits over halogen, metal halide and high-pressure-sodium lamps.
RGB floodlights consume much less power than traditional lamps, providing an immediate cost saving over
the conventional alternatives. The lower wattages also mean that the luminaires themselves will run much cooler, making them less dangerous than their powerful counterparts.
RGB floodlights don’t have a warm up time and can immediately switch on – where as metal halide and high-pressure-sodium lamps need time to warm up, as well as cool down before they can restrike if they lose power. Not to overlook the lamp life of LEDs which is typically rated at 50,000 hours, allowing for less frequent maintenance intervals or replacement of lamps.
Advantages unique to RGB Floodlights
In addition to the above mentioned advantages, there are a number of tasks RGB floodlights can perform that their traditional counterparts cannot. With DMX lighting control RGB floodlights are not only able to be dimmed, but can also change colour. Until RGB floodlights were available, the only way that a building
or landscape could be floodlit with coloured light was through the use of filters, and even then the colour was fixed. With RGB Floodlights it is possible for the colours to change, blend with one another and perform a myriad of dynamic functions previously not possible.
