Converting 400W Metal Halide HID Fixtures to LED Lighting

At a central New York Housing Authority, the existing HID 400 watt metal halide fixtures were upgraded to very high efficiency and effective LED lighting. The upgrade resulted in much better lighting quality, enhanced visibility and much more uniformm lighting, while lowering electric costs and virtually eliminating maintenance. These fixtures are 105 watt LED Area Lighting fixtures from Eye Lighting. They are the Aphos brand fixtures, mounted about 30 feet above grade.

The 5,000K LED Parking Lot Lights, with a much higher Color Rendering Index (CRI) provides much more natural lighting and rendering of colors. The 5,000K Color Temperature (CCT) results in a cleaner light with more visual acuity to aid safety and security in this parking lot lighting application.
