Lighting IV: Basic Lamp Families: High-Intensity Discharge and LED

* Identify the main characteristics of high-pressure lamps, especially Metal Halide lamps. * Identify the main characteristics of light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. * List the different methods of starting high-pressure discharge lamps, and the disadvantages of long strike and re-strike times.
At the heart of lighting performance is the lamp or light source. Lamps are the key determinant in the amount, quality, and distribution of light from a luminaire. Additionally, power consumption, maintenance and life cycle are lamp characteristics a facility owner will live with long after the initial purchase is made. In this class, we will learn about the key characteristics of high intensity discharge lamps, particularly metal halide and light emitting diodes. We'll learn about the advantages and disadvantages, and the appropriate applications of each lamp family.
