    US Lighting Tech makes better and cheaper street lights than CREE

    The advantages of induction over other forms of outdated lighting technology are innumerable. Key benefits of USLT induction include:

    A 100,000+ Hour Rated Life
    The most significant advantage of USLT induction lighting is its incredibly long rated life. The electrodes in a fluorescent lamp typically fail after 15,000 to 20,000 hours. Induction lamps do not utilize electrodes, so their rated life is 100,000 hours (significantly reducing the need for maintenance and lamp replacements). Induction is the preferred choice for industrial operating environments for this reason, where frequent lamp change-outs present serious logistical and safety challenges.

    Better Lumen Output
    USLT induction delivers a higher quality light output (with an 80+ CRI) that provides a white full spectrum light that is more usable to the human eye. USLT induction technology ensures better lumen maintenance throughout its useful life when compared with other lamp technologies. This means that our installations deliver a warm, non-glaring white light (compared with LED) that is more desirable for safety and security purposes.

    Greater Durability
    “A ballast is a ballast is a ballast.” Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth, especially with electronic ballasts. Each individual component matters and overall design matters. USLT partners with Sylvania, the world’s largest lighting component supplier, to only use the highest quality components in our systems.
