What Are High Temperature LED Lights?

Most LED products fail in temperatures that are higher than what they’re designed for. This means that the lumen output of LED lights in a hot environment will decrease at a much faster rate than it would at cooler temperatures. There is a simple explanation for why. Most LED products work at the upper end of what the LED chips and drivers are capable of performing. These components have an upper range of what is a safe operating temperature they need to be below.

Take the sum of the heat the lights produce and the ambient heat of the surrounding environment. This must be below the stated upper operating temperature of the fixture. When it is not, it reduces the expected life of the fixture and voids the warranty.

LED lights in high-heat environments such as steel mills or foundries with operating temperatures of up to 205° F are tested. The main advantage is these high-temperature fixtures can maintain optimal lumen output as temperatures climb in these high-temperature environments. The light is also designed to provide a long operating life with minimal fixture maintenance.

High temperature LED fixtures can also work in extreme cold. While this might not make intuitive sense, some of our high-temperature lights can handle extreme cold as well, whereas normal LED lights would fail. The lights that handle 194F and 302F can also operate at -85F. So in many respects, these are also Cold Temperature LED Lights.

High Temperature and Heat Resistant LED Lighting are the same thing. Many people refer to high-temperature lighting as heat-resistant lighting.

LED High-Temperature Lighting Definition

LED Lights for High-Temperature Areas refer to lights capable of operating in hot environments. Our high heat-resistant LED lights can operate in temperatures up to 302F.

Above these temperatures, these high-heat LED lights would experience a shortened lifespan. Our High-temperature LEDs can operate in temperatures well above 150F. We have fixtures that operate up to 212F and 302F.

What are the Benefits of using High Temperature LED Lighting?

  • Reduced utility bills when compared to metal halide and high-pressure sodium bulbs
  • Reduced maintenance with LED as there are no bulbs and ballasts to change.
  • Long lifespan - so the lights will be reliable and provide a safer working environment
  • engineered and designed to work in very hot environments up to 302F.

What is Light Performance If the Heat Goes Above the Rated Temperature?

If the heat exceeds the rated temperature, you can expect the light to have a shortened lifespan. Please note, that the warranty is void in this case.

What is the Life Expectancy of High-Temperature LED Lights?

We warranty these heat-resistant LED lights for 5 years. In normal operating conditions, you can expect that lifespan. The range depends on

  • how high the temperature is
  • how many days a year that temperature exists
  • how many hours a day the lights are on

All are factors in determining the actual lifespan of these fixtures. In most cases, you can expect 10+ years out of a fixture.

How Many High-Temperature Lights Do I Need?

That depends on your building size and your lighting requirements. Are you adding new lights or replacing existing lights? We should be able to replace your existing lights, one for one, with our lights and provide better light levels.

Lighting Plans for High-Temperature LED Fixtures

Want a lighting plan? We offer free lighting plans for our commercial and industrial customers.

We can do a high-temperature lighting plan for you. We can model your indoor space with lighting software. We can add in different models until we meet your requirements. That way, when we ship you those lights, there are no surprises.

Are High Temperature Fixtures Good for Industrial Applications?

Most, if not all, of these high temp LED lighting fixtures, are designed for high-temperature applications.

Installing High-Temperature LED Lights

There is nothing special about the mounting. They are in many ways the same as a normal high bay light. For nuclear power customers, we offer safety cables to meet their standards.

Best Applications for High Temperature LED Lights

We have sold LED lights for hot, demanding environments to many facilities and warm regions around the world. These include the deserts of California, Arizona, Las Vegas, and the Middle East. We have many nuclear and fossil fuel power generation facilities that use our lights. also, our lights are installed in facilities that use blast and induction furnaces in their manufacturing use our lights. Here are some great applications for LED lights for hot environments:

  • electricity generation (steam turbines)
  • nuclear power plants
  • aluminum manufacturing
  • paper mills
  • steel mills
  • gas plants
  • glass factories
  • metal foundries
  • arc furnaces
  • factories and manufacturing plants

LED Lights in a Hot Environment

High-Temperature Fixtures Testing

Engineers place the lights in a very hot oven at the highest temperature ratings for long periods. The engineers calculate LED and driver life degradation based on these tests. It’s the same way they determine the lifespan of LED lights. The only difference is the testing temperatures for these lights are much higher.

High Temperature Light Installation

Voltage Support for High-Temperature Fixtures

We offer both 100-277V and 277-480V driver options on most high-temperature fixtures.

High-Temperature Fixture Mounts

The same as a typical high bay or flood fixture. We offer

  • eye hooks
  • pendant and wire mounting
  • trunnion/yoke mount for ceiling/wall mount applications
