  • 1. DHID (Digital HID) Lighting Reduces Industry Lighting Expenses by 50%+ Industry can be more competitive and environmentally effective today by significantly reducing the costs and electricity consumption associated with the operation of lighting. By replacing antiquated lighting systems with high performance energy efficient digital High-Intensity Discharge lighting (DHID or Digital HID), 50%+ less electricity is consumed and demanded from the power utilities; cost-effectively reducing Industry's carbon footprint. When considering the upgrade of an existing HID lighting system or lighting for new Green Building projects, DHID technology delivers the most energy efficient lighting solutions for Street Lighting, Factory/Warehouse High-Bay Lighting, Greenhouse Hydroponics, Sporting Arena, Airport and Renewable Energy Applications. Any existing core and coil (magnetic) ballast HID application can benefit immediately just by retrofitting the old magnetic ballast with a new DHID ballast. From an environmental standpoint, by reusing the existing light fixture and lens assembly, less waste is created and money is saved since only a new ballast need be purchased, leaving only the old ballast to be recycled (we partner end-users with recommended magnetic ballast recycling companies). DHID's value-added features and performance make it the smart solution for any new installation; it is the most cost-effective alternative to LED, Fluorescent and Induction based technologies for new and retrofit industrial and commercial Green lighting projects. Digital Ballasts offer unparalleled electrical efficiency and performance compared to conventional magnetic ballasts and outperforms LED, Fluorescent, and Induction lighting in initial buying cost, energy efficiency, system performance, light quality, and maintenance/consumable costs. With an industry leading luminous efficacy of 116 Lumens/Watt, conventional higher Wattage magnetic ballast HID lighting fixtures are now easily upgraded/retrofitted or replaced with the new higher-performance, yet lower wattage DHID Digital ballast or fixture. For example, a conventional 1000W Metal Halide magnetic ballast, can be retrofitted with the DHID 575W Digital Ballast offering an immediate and significant 50% energy savings and approximately 18% brighter light. Add the ability to dim the Digital Ballasts, and even greater energy savings can be realized. Add Light Management Software to control the lighting network wirelessly; dimming lights on demand or on set schedules, electricity operating expenses are reduced by 75%+. Application Examples Street Lighting (Municipality) Applications: • Street Lighting Project – Pittsburgh, PA, USA. - Replaced 150W and 250W HPS utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 100W digital ballasts in existing cobra head fixtures. - A simple plug-and-play ballast retrofit or a simple replacement of the entire cobra head lamp fixture based on the DHID Digital Ballast. - DHID system favoured over competitors LED based design; DHID offered better performance and price. - Reduced inventory stock/costs; one DHID ballast powers inexpensive MH, CMH and HPS bulbs. - Excellent ROI; low maintenance/consumable costs (only inexpensive bulb need be replaced every 30,000hrs+). - Total direct savings: 72.5Watts/hr per fixture (42% savings) for magnetic 150W application and 187.5Watts/hr per fixture (65% savings) for 250W application; calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%). • Street Lighting Project – Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. - Simply retrofitted existing 150W HPS utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 70W digital ballasts (CMH lamp). - DHID delivered the same measured amount of lumens on the ground with the DHID 70W solution. - DHID 70W ballast can be dimmed to 39W or 50W to meet other application requirements where <70W MH, CMH and HPS bulbs are utilized. - Excellent ROI; low maintenance/consumable costs (only inexpensive bulb need be replaced every 30,000hrs+). - Total direct savings: 102.5Watts/hr per fixture (59% savings); calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%).
  • 2. Factory/Warehouse High-Bay Lighting (Industry/Commercial/Retail): • HEINZ Ketchup Food Manufacturing Plant – Southern Ontario, Canada. - Replaced existing 320W MH fixtures utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 150W digital ballast fixtures (CMH lamp). - Measured Lux (lx) at the ground before and after installation (mounting height of 26ft.); old 320W MH produced 120lx - New DHID 150W produced 455lx (i.e. a most significant 73.7% improvement in light quality/brightness at the ground for over half the electricity consumed) - Reduced over-all maintenance/consumable costs since DHID powered lamps do not degrade in light quality or brightness the entire 30,000hrs+ MTBF of the HID bulb. - Total direct savings: 218Watts/hr per fixture (59% savings); calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%). • Toyota Automobile Assembly Plant – Southern Ontario, Canada. - Replaced existing 400W MH fixtures utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 250W digital ballast fixtures (CMH lamp). - The new installation not only resulted in significant energy savings but also provided 20% additional lumens for the area and thus leading to the elimination of 30-40% of the existing fluorescent task lighting. - Return on investment justified with the low buying cost and performance of DHID lighting; maintenance/consumable costs of DHID favoured over LED, Fluorescent and Induction lighting. - Total direct savings: 210Watts/hr per fixture (54% savings) with DHID 250W setting; customer can dim to the 100W, 135W, and 150W, settings for up to 360Watts/hr per fixture (78%) savings; calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%). Greenhouse Hydroponic Lighting Applications: - Retrofit/Replace existing 1000W HID fixtures utilizing MH, CMH or HPS bulbs utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 575W digital ballasts or DHID fixtures (CMH, MH or HPS lamp). - Or Replace/Retrofit existing 1000W MH fixtures with 1000W-2000W+ digital ballasts to further increase plant growth yields in a shorter timeframe. - DHID digital high frequency ballasts operate within the most advantageous 100-200 kHz light frequency (Sun = 100kHz) and maximize the energy efficiency and mean time before failure specifications of MH, CMH and HPS lamps. - Greenhouse operators can now maximize the return on their lighting investment and profitability due to the higher energy and electrical efficiency of the DHID digital ballast. - Low cost of investment including reduced maintenance/consumable expenses make DHID the most financially viable lighting solution for greenhouse operators today. - Return On Investment; at $0.10/kWhr, a DHID 575W digital ballast operated 12 hours per day, 365 days a year (4380 hours) will be paid back in 1.4 years. - Total direct savings: 575Watts/hr per fixture (50% savings); operator can use DHID 1000W+ to increase plant growth yields/reduce grow time for less electricity expense than their existing magnetic based 1000W MH or HPS HID lighting system. Calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%). Sporting Arena/Event Lighting Applications: • Ice Hockey Arena Installation – Southern Ontario, Canada - Replaced 1000W MH fixtures utilizing core and coil (magnetic) ballasts with dimmable DHID 575W digital ballast fixtures (CMH lamp). - Immediate increase in energy savings and improvement in light quality and brightness at the ice surface. - At full power (575W setting), end-user noted it was too much brightness reflecting off of the ice service. End- user was able to dim the 575W fixture to the desired setting; any of 360W, 400W, 460W, and 575W. - Return on investment is 3 years or less. - Total direct savings: 575Watts/hr per fixture (50% savings) with DHID 575W setting; customer can dim to the 360W, 400W, or 460W settings for up to 790Watts/hr per fixture (69% savings); calculations including magnetic ballast energy losses (approx. 15%).
