LED Intermodal Lighting - Rail Lighting
Terminal and Bulk Handling Outdoor Lights
LED Lighting Supply supplies intermodal high power lighting for transportation facilities and yards. LED can reduce energy usage by 75% and increase safety.
Intermodal and container yard facilities use high power lights to provide flood and area lighting throughout. Transportation and Rail Intermodal lights use to need large amounts of power to operate. LED Intermodal Lighting Options from LED Lighting Supply reduces usage by 75%, more using controls. Our fixtures can also be used for railway station lighting.
Rail Yard Lighting Plans - Get the Perfect Brightness and Light Distribution
Why is it important to get a Rail Yard Lighting Plan?
A lighting plan is a software representation of your rail yard outdoor area with lights plotted to show you how well lit the area can be using our LED Outdoor Lights.
We can model different lighting options, optics and lumen packages to provide you with all the information you need to determine what's best for you.
What are Intermodal Lights?
Intermodal Lights are high power lights typically found on the top of poles. Each pole can hold many lights, spread out evenly around the pole to optimize light distribution. Poles are typically 80 - 150 feet tall. It is not uncommon to find LED High Mast Lights installed on the top of these poles.
What are LED Intermodal Lights?
LED Intermodal Lights are the LED representation of Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium Lights. There are LED Lights capable of replacing 400 Watt, 1000 Watt, 1500 Watt and 2000 Watt Metal Halide. LED Lights produce powerful, directional lumens that can easily compete with any Metal Halide Light used in Intermodal Rail Yards.
What are the benefits of using LED instead of Metal Halide for Intermodal Rail Yard Lighting?
There are many benefits, and very few negatives. The main benefits include
ability to work in any voltage from 100 volts to 480 volts
available in many optic and distribution patterns to provide optimum lighting
color temperature options - 4000K or 5000K
high impact rating for demanding, tough environments - IK08
lighting controls including photocells and motion sensors
dramatic savings on maintenance costs - no need to change ballasts or bulbs
energy savings from 50% - 90% over Metal Halide
high Color Rendering Index (CRI) options - significantly better than High Pressure Sodium
IP wet rated fixtures for all weather conditions
Are Intermodal Lights High Mast Lights?
They can be, but not exclusively so. It is not uncommon to use a combination of High Mast Lights and High Power Flood Lights to create excellent lighting for intermodal rail yards.
