Meet the Susan Lamp, Lunera's Latest Plug and Play LED Bulb

Meet the Susan Lamp, Lunera's Latest Plug and Play LED Bulb | Motors and Drives News and Reviews | Scoop.it

SUSAN LAMP FROM LUNERA’S BALLASTLED™ TECHNOLOGY LINE REPLACES METAL HALLIDES

ecoInsight's insight:

At 15,000+ Lumens, the Susan Lamp is a beautiful, full spectrum, instant-on light that works well with sensor controls. It’s a smart and energy efficient alternative designed to replace the now-outlawed, power-hungry 175, 250 and 400 MH bulbs. The Susan Lamp is the lighting industry’s first true plug and play replacement for metal halide bulbs. The new design integrates innovative electronics that make these LED lights compatible with existing metal halide ballasts. This makes the Susan Lamp an ideal affordable transitional technology for those who want to venture towards energy efficient lighting systems.


Lunera Lighting presently has two models available for commercial and residential applications for indoor and outdoor use. The Susan Pro is a high lumen LED lamp that improves existing light levels while reducing energy consumption by 60 to 70%.The smaller Susan Lamp Junior maintains existing light levels but saves up anywhere between 70 – 90% more energy than traditional metal halide bulbs.


What Does This Mean For Retrofitters?

Apart from being easy to install, cheaper, reliable and valuable, the Susan Lamp has a number of other useful features to woo customers with. Lunera has single-handedly simplified LED conversions and minimized expenses for end users with one smart move.


Easy Plug & Play Installations | The Susan Lamp just simplified installations. An LED conversion is now as easy as changing a light bulb. Just plug in the Susan Lamp to an existing pulse and probe start metal halide fixture to bring down power consumption.


Lower Installation Costs | First time LED users no longer have to bear the cost of replacing existing fittings andballasts with the Susan Lamp. Now there is no excuse to not migrate to clean LEDs.


Lowest Installed cost-per-watt | The Susan Lamp’s plug-and play approach offers the lowest installed cost-per-watt saved on any LED high bay solution available in the market today.


Longer Life Span | The Susan Lamp has a life of 50,000 hours and unlike metal halides, these lights do not fluctuate, explode or cause excessive heat. In fact, the Susan lamp lasts five times longer than regular metal halide bulbs.


The Susan Lamp is available through authorized nationwide distributors. Contact Lunera to arrange a demonstration or to locate a distributor near you. Or if you’re an ecoInsight user, specify the Susan Lamp directly from the ecoInsight Sales Platform for your projects.

Condition Monitoring System reports shaft current issues.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) are becoming the system of choice across a variety of industries due to their ability to reduce energy consumption and generate significant cost savings. However, these systems induce high-frequency voltages on the shaft that seek a path to ground, discharging through the motor’s bearings or through the bearings of coupled equipment. This discharge, called electrical discharge machining (EDM), causes fluting on the bearings and is a leading cause of premature bearing failure in VFD-driven motors.

Can I control multiple motors on one VFD?

Can I control multiple motors on one VFD? | Motors and Drives News and Reviews | Scoop.it

Multiple motors operation is quite common application. There are many applications like textile, printing etc where multi motor operation is very common. I have seen many VFD manufacturers recommending multiple motor operation. Say in a textile loom, there could be scores of Motors running spinning pumps, godets, winders etc. If there are some 40 Motors of say 0.5 HP, then one can certainly go in for one single variable frequency drive of say 25 hp rating.

Controllers and VFDs

Controllers and VFDs | Motors and Drives News and Reviews | Scoop.it

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) “are a necessity at any wash.” They help minimize the waste of electricity and they help owners and operators dial in equipment.Simply put, VFDs allow owners to have control over how a motor is being run. Here, a controller will tell the VFD when and how to do certain things. In this instance, the drives will change the motor speed, and it is the controller telling the drive what to do. Homan likens the relationship to that of a brain and a hand. The controller is the brain, and the VFD is the hand.

Excessive heat is one of the biggest killers for electric motors; this is the granddaddy of motor issues. In fact, the other four items on this list are often damaging precisely because they contribute to excess heat generation. The oft stated rule is that the life of the motor winding insulation is halved for every 10 degrees centigrade of additional heat to the windings. Because of the excessive levels of deterioration that entails, keeping your motors running at optimum temperature is one of the best ways to extend their life.
