Dirk Reader of Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds business discusses the benefits of LED lighting over traditional HID lighting solutions in industrial facilities. LED lighting has many benefits that can increase profitability and safety. Some of the LED lighting fixtures manufactured by Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds business hang for upwards of 80,000 to 100,000 hours with energy efficiencies that are 60 to 70 percent greater than HID lighting counterparts. In many cases the return on investment on LED lighting is seen in well under two years. LED lighting is also a favorable option because of safety features such as instant on and instant off, they are dimmable and when used with occupancy sensors, HID cannot step up to the performance of LED lighting. Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds business offers the largest and broadest selection of LED lighting of explosion proof and heavy industrial lighting.
