Finally a LED Wall Pack that Packs a Punch
With the emergence of LED technology, the current use of high pressure sodium bulbs has now become obsolete. While there are still plenty of commercial buildings using HPS bulbs, there are drawbacks to this method of light source.
Drawbacks of HPS and Pros of LED
For starters, HPS bulbs don’t last very long. While they are typically better than other alternatives such as fluorescent lighting, HPS bulbs still only last for 24,000 life hours. With the StarLED Wallpack Light 90W IP54, you have a bulb that lasts twice as long, with 50,000 life hours. On top of that, the bulb uses only a fraction of what a typical HPS bulb uses.
While an HPS wall pack uses 400W, the StarLED Wallpack Light 90W IP54 utilizes just 90W of power. All while putting out the same amount of lumens with 9900 lumens. This makes the StarLED Wallpack Light 90W IP54 just as powerful and bright while also utilizing 90 percent less energy than a HPS bulb. Another drawback of HPS is that sometimes the bulbs create an annoying buzzing sound. However, with a LED wall pack, there is no buzzing sound. HPS bulbs also take some time to warm up whereas an LED fixture is instant-on to full brightness.
On top of all the drawbacks for HPS bulbs, there is also another drawback that is a nuisance over time. HPS bulbs tend to be energy hungry, causing your utility bill to be unnecessarily high. With LED lights, you’re using a fraction of the power while having the same lumen output. What this means is while staying at the same brightness, the StarLED Wallpack Light 90W IP54 will help you save plenty of money on your utility bill each year. All of these benefits for LEDs make the StarLED Wallpack Light 90W IP54 a fantastic upgrade from your outdated HPS wall packs.
