What are 250 Watt Metal Halide Replacement - LED High Bays?
These are high bays specifically designed to replace a 250 Watt Metal Halide High Bay. This type of high bay is typically found in low bay environments. They are the lower power versions of their bigger brothers - 400 Watt and 1000 Watt Metal Halide High Bays.
How many LED Watts does it take to replace a 250 Watt Metal Halide High Bay?
The better question is how many lumens does it take. We answer that question below. For the most part, assuming it takes between 10,000 and 15,000 lumens to replace a 250 Watt Metal Halide, divide the lumens by the LED Fixtures efficiency in terms of lumens per watt. This will give you the watts you need.
For example, say you decide you need 15000 lumens. Find the most efficient fixture that produces 15000 lumens. For purpose of this example, lets say its 150 lumens/watt. Then you would need 100 LED Watts to replace 250 Watts Metal Halide.
How many LED Lumens does it take to replace a 250 Watt Metal Halide High Bay?
We have found that a fixture producing 10,000 to 15,000 lumens is your best choice. But this is a wide range. What's the best option for you?
Consider getting an Indoor High Bay lighting plan done. We can then calculate what makes sense for you based on the lighting plan results. Determining your needs based on light levels, fixture placement and fixture height will tell you the lumens you need per fixture to get the desired results you are looking for.
