Product Name: GloGreen Digital HID (DHID) Lighting Retrofit Ballasts, Highbay Lighting Fixtures, and Street Lighting Fixtures
Digital HID (DHID) lighting technology is proven in installations across the World; Accendo Electronics' GloGreen DHID ballast technologies represent the market’s most innovative and environmentally responsible lighting solutions today. Based on the proven and robust High-Intensity Discharge (HID) lamp, the DHID ballast is its next generation master. HID light bulbs directed by the GloGreen Digital HID ballast suffer no visible light degradation over time and last much longer; DHID completely reduces wear and tear, i.e. premature lamp gas degradation and tube darkening. DHID lighting technology offers unmatched energy efficiency and represents the most cost-effective, highest performing, longest lasting solution for World Industry’s best return on lighting investment.

At the heart of Accendo DHID technology is the Direct Digital Ignition (DDI) micro-processor. This ‘computer’ and its embedded algorithms provide HID bulbs the exact Voltage required for both controlled ignition and controlled operation of the bulb over its entire lifetime. The DDI micro-processor allows gases in the High-Pressure Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide (MH) or Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) bulb to be consumed in a most controlled state; i.e. gases are no longer involuntarily burned or consumed due to erratic uncontrolled Voltage strikes. In addition to drastically improving the performance and life of the HID bulb, the DDI micro-processor guarantees quick HID lamp start times (ignites quickly and is at 100% power in 60 seconds); instant dimming (in stages or seamless); and quick hot re-strike times (2-3 minutes).

When operating a HID bulb with a core and coil (magnetic) ballast or less efficient electronic based ballast; both of those systems offer a lower command of the Voltage being delivered to the bulb in both the ignition and the operation stage. The end result is the HID bulb suffers degradation rapidly (bulb dims prematurely after few hours of operation). Many users have experienced the inherent flaws of HID bulbs powered by traditional ballast systems, including delayed lamp ignition and re-strike times and the degradation of the light quality by 20% to 30% in only the first 6 months of operation.

As a result of these inefficiencies, the magnetic powered HID lamp continues to lose gas and therefore requires relamping or replacement sooner. With magnetic powered HID lamps degrading so quickly, failures can be considered in as little as 6 months since the light being output no longer meets the original specification, making relamping mandatory and unfortunately wasteful. With Digital HID bulbs now lasting 50,000 hours or more, costly relamping is no longer required since originally specified lumen levels will never decrease; meaning lamp changes are truly at the end of the lamp’s lifespan.

Direct Digital Ignition Micro-processor Technology

• Direct Digital Ignition (DDI) micro-processor control algorithms optimize the balance of current with lamp gases.
• Micro-processor based system performs at 97% efficiency delivering the highest lumen output per Watt in the market today (118lm/W+).
• Industry leading technology produces more penetrating and longer lasting light than core and coil (magnetic) ballasts for significantly less energy consumed.
• The high efficiency of the DHID ballast allows Watts input to be most efficiently converted to Watts output as lumens with only 3%-5% losses to heat.
• System efficiency virtually eliminates electrical losses and corresponding ambient heat. The GloGreen DHID ballast power factor is >98%.
• DDI minimizes lamp wear, and in turn prolongs the life of the lamp by at least 1.5 times, dynamically maintaining the optimal operating Voltage and frequency of the lamp.
• HID lamps operated with the GloGreen ballast will not visibly degrade over their entire lifetime; i.e. 95% lumen maintenance - no relamping is required, lamp is only changed at its life end of 40,000 hours (MH), or 70,000 hours (HPS) and beyond (especially when instant dimming is utilized)..
• Instant dimming and full power resumption is managed by the DDI micro-processor via motion sensor or PLC Analog 0-10VDC input; or pre-programmed and RF based options.

Success Stories:
Digital HID™ Lighting Reduces Industry Lighting Expenses by 50%+

Industry can be more competitive and environmentally effective today by dramatically reducing the costs and electricity consumption associated with the operation of lighting. By simply retrofitting or replacing antiquated magnetic High-Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting systems with high performance energy efficient Digital HID™ (DHID™) lighting, the end user can yield an immediate 40% or 50% savings in energy while still maintaining equivalent light levels. Introducing dimming allows for 75% or more in additional energy savings. Money savings due to reduced electricity expenses allow the payback of the DHID™ lighting solution to be really short, and with minimal maintenance and consumable expenses incurred over the long term.
