Ceravision’s new approach to high-bay lighting
A 70%-plus reduction in the energy consumption of high-bay lighting installations compared to HID lamps is claimed for Ceravision’s Alvara high-bay luminaire based on high-efficiency plasma technology. Efficacy is at least 96 lm/W (system), and one fitting can replace on average two traditional 400 W HID high-bay fittings. The quality of light is indicated by a colour temperature of 4500 K and a CRI of at least 80.
They start more quickly than HID lamps and can be dimmed down to 30% of full output.
Control is achieved using Ceravision’s Alvara Light Touch software, which enables installations to be tailored to specific requirements and reconfigured if the layout of the space changes. Standard functions include daylight linking, proximity sensing, multi-zone control times controlled zones and manual over-ride. The software will also monitor the performance of individual luminaires and/or zones and schedule planned maintenance.
