General Information About LED Industrial Lighting

What Is Industrial LED Lighting?

Industrial LED Lighting is a line of products that are designed to be used in industrial applications such as:

Hazardous locations
High-temperature areas
Steel Mills and Factories
Industrial Shop Lights
Extreme environment locations
Industrial Building Lighting
Indoor Lighting and Outdoor Lighting for locations that need high-power solutions
Ports, airports, container ports, and rail / intermodal locations
Correctional facilities
Power plants

Machine Shop

How much energy do Industrial LED lights save compared to traditional (HID) lighting?

They typically can save at least 50% and as much as 80% over metal halide and high pressure sodium fixtures. They can save even more when paired with lighting controls like motion sensors and photocells.

What Are the Advantages of Using LEDs for Industrial Applications?

Our industrial-grade products provide high power and high-quality lighting with robust, impact-resistant fixtures that work well in extreme environments. The biggest benefit is that they will dramatically reduce your maintenance costs over an expected lifetime of 10+ years.

How can you select the right LED Industrial Lights for a specific application or setting?

The best way is to contact us. We have been providing guidance about LED lights to our customers since 2008. We have the knowledge and expertise to know what works and what doesn’t work for industrial applications. And we can produce a lighting design plan for you to show what we suggest will work and meet your needs.

What are the Benefits of using LED Lights in Industrial Settings and Applications?

There are many, here are the top 6:

  1. Energy savings: You should expect 50% to 80% reduced costs over traditional lighting. There are additional savings when controls are used.
  2. Less maintenance: HID (Metal Halide) bulbs need replacing at around 15,000 hours. At 1/2 life (7500 hours), they have lost 1/2 of their lumens.
  3. Instant On and Instant Off. No long start-up/strike times using LED lights. So, the lights are on when you need them – instantly.
  4. Works well with motion sensors. They can turn on and off quickly – and dim – so they work well with these energy savings controls.
  5. Dimming: Some LEDs (not all) can dim. In warehouses and factories, this means you can dim the lights when the space is empty. Works perfectly with dimming motion sensors.
  6. Lights available for hazardous locations: Whether you need explosion-proof, high-temperature, or other hazardous location lighting, it’s all available in an LED format.

What’s the difference between Industrial Lighting and Commercial Lighting?

Predominantly, it’s related to what facility the lighting is installed into. An Industrial Facility is one where manufacturing occurs, or where hazardous processes or conditions exist. It requires rugged, application-specific lights to meet the demanding needs of the environment or process.

Commercial Lighting is typically found in spaces like gymnasiums, warehouses that store products, retail locations, schools, office spaces, and hospitals, for example. Conditions within these locations are not extreme. Therefore, the demands of what the light needs to do are not as severe or necessary.

What Makes an LED Light Industrial Grade?

There are many things that come into play when it comes to Industrial Grade LED Lighting.

Lights with an impact rating of IK08-IK10 (the highest impact test rating)

Hazardous Location Explosion Proof Lighting fixtures. Our company offers Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2 fixtures.

Vapor tight and food-safe NSF Grade fixtures.

High voltage (up to 480 Volts) and High Powered (replaces a 2000-Watt Metal Halide/HID) LED Fixture.

Outdoors, we offer high-power, sturdy fixtures that are able to be installed in sports fields and stadiums.


Before You Buy: LED Industrial Lighting

What are the voltage range options for Industrial Grade LED Lighting?

LED lighting typically runs in several voltage ranges. The first and most common is 100-277V. The drivers are designed to automatically adjust/switch to the voltage provided in that range.

So, if the industrial LED Fixture is equipped with a 100V-277V driver, and your input voltage is 240V, the driver will automatically switch to accept the 240V input.

Here are the common voltage ranges we see offered across many of our LED fixtures:


How Can I Reduce Glare from Industrial LED Light Fixtures?

Many of our lights are high-lumen fixtures, and glare can be an issue. But there are ways you can control and limit the effect of glare. This includes selecting the right fixture for your light level required, adding frosted lenses to LED industrial lighting fixtures, and shields to outside fixtures.

How Many Lumens Per Square Foot do I need for Industrial Applications?

We never advise our clients to determine lumens per square foot. We work with them to determine the right amount of lighting in terms of foot candles on the ground and then recommend a fixture that, when installed within their facility, will hit the mark for their specific area.

Do you sell Industrial-Grade High Bay Lighting?

LED Lighting Supply specializes in Industrial and Commercial Lighting products, including Industrial Grade High Bay LED Lights. We offer many of the fixtures you would associate with indoor and industrial outdoor LED lighting:

High Power
High Voltage
High Temperature
Explosion Proof
Impact Resistant
Marine Grade Epoxy Coatings

How do you Hang Heavy Industrial Lighting from the Ceiling?

Many of our LED lights for industrial use include all the hardware required to hang from the ceiling, and we also provide the option for mounting, depending on what is required in your installation. LED lights tend to be lighter than the metal halide lights they replace.

Linear fixtures are not heavier than the fluorescent lights they replace.

Typically mounting options include eye hook, pendant, surface mounting, or wire, and cable.

Of interest, Industrial LED Lighting fixtures weigh less than HID (Metal Halide) fixtures. So, an LED Fixture designed to replace a 1000-Watt Metal Halide will typically weigh less than the Metal Halide fixture.

Can you fit lighting controls to Industrial LED Fixtures?

You can. Because LED Lights are Instant On / Instant Off and can dim, they are well suited for motion sensors and photocells, or a combination of both. Dimming motion sensors can only be used with LED Fixtures using dimmable LED Drivers.

What Are the Different Types of Industrial Lights?

Industrial lights can be split into two groups – indoor and outdoor. Here are a few of the industrial LED lights for sale on our website:

Industrial Indoor LED Lighting Industrial Outdoor LED Lighting

Explosion Proof Lighting
High Bay LED Lights
Vapor Proof LED Light Fixtures
Food-Safe LED Lights

What’s the best way to ensure the light levels are proper and light is balanced across the industrial space?

The best way is to start with a lighting plan.

Lighting Plans for Industrial Areas, indoors or outdoors, provide the proper assurances that the lighting project will meet your requirements. We supply free lighting design plans for our industrial customers. Ask for yours.

Installation Information On LED Industrial Lighting

How do you Install Industrial Lighting?

A qualified electrician can easily replace an existing metal halide, high pressure sodium, or fluorescent fixture with a 1-for-1 replacement of an LED fixture. We offer the same mounting systems, so there is no need to modify the mount you have. And, our lights wire directly into the same junction boxes as the old fixtures do.

Can You Use Common Neutral for Industrial Lighting?

Yes, we have options that can wire to common, 277V, 480V, single-phase, and three-phase electric installations.

How do you Wire Industrial Lighting?

If you are wiring to 100-277V, it’s a simple 3-wire connection. Line, Neutral, and Ground. We also have options that can connect to 347-480V, single phase or three-phase. For the most part, a qualified electrician can easily wire our industrial lighting into the existing infrastructure of the facility.

And since LEDs use less power, there is no need to modify the panel to add more circuits. Amp draw will be less per fixture than the fixtures they replace.
