How bright will your substation be after you convert to LED Lighting? That’s a great question. No one wants to spend money on a substation lighting conversion only to find out the area isn’t bright enough, too bright or poorly distributed. Safety is paramount. Security is required. Lighting is an essential part of keeping a substation safe and secure.
So, how can you make sure the light you choose will be the right choice? How many watts? How many lumens? What optics should you use? It’s hard to look at a cut sheet and determine what is the perfect light for the job. How can you upgrade your substation to LED without all the risk? How do you determine substation lighting standards and requirements? A substation lighting design calculation can help you to solve these questions.
What is a Lighting Plan for Substations?
Lighting Design Plans for Substations gives you a virtual representation of what the lighting could be. Using lighting software, it models the indoor or outdoor space that requires lighting.
We model the interior or exterior space of your substation utilizing different light fixtures, configurations and optics. When we perform the modeling, we observe the light levels at the floor or desired work plane, and how well the light is distributed. We run several models with different fixtures, calculating what the best option and results will be for you.
Lighting calculations can model any option. If you have high ceilings, you may consider a lower angle optic to put the light on the ground and less on the walls. If you have lower ceilings, we would choose a fixture with greater beam distribution to level out the light levels across the entire areas.
Example: Industrial Substation space 100 ft long, 600 ft wide, 25 ft pole mount with a goal of 30 foot candles
The photometric shows 16 200W LED flood fixtures achieves 30 fc with uniform light distribution.

So by doing a simple substation lighting calculation, you can see what your space can look like before you even spend 1 dollar. We can assist you in determining the option with the best light distribution for your need.
We strongly believe that performing an indoor or outdoor industrial lighting calculation before you purchase greatly reduces the risk of buying the wrong fixture.
