Induction Conversion

Because induction lighting provides scotopically higher quality light with an elevated CRI, visibility is typically higher or equal to to HPS or metal halide with less foot candles or measurable lumens required. Energy savings may vary depending on suitable replacement for each application. Replacement guidelines are based on the Sylvania Icetron induction system.
