LED Sports Lighting Brings Gymnasium Into the 21st Century

Cutting Edge Sports Lighting Shines

Many colleges regard their sports programs as their primary public image.  This is absolutely true of Pasco Hernando State College, whose women’s volleyball team consistently ranks high in state and national competitions.  It’s no surprise, therefore, that the gymnasium at their main campus is an important facility to the school’s public relations campaigns.  But the gymnasium lights had seen better days. Not only did the fixtures look old, the technology was outdated.

The existing high bay lights were 400w Metal Halide lights.  Metal Halides (a kind of High Intensity Discharge or HID light) emit a good color (about 3000K color temperature), but they take about 5 to 10 minutes to reach full brightness from a cold start.  HID lighting is also cannot be dimmed, and if they shut off after reaching full operating temperature, they require a cool down period before they will reignite.  The ballasts in many of the lights also buzzed and hummed loudly, which echoed throughout the room.  This background noise raised the overall decibel level of non-sports events in the gym, since anyone speaking had to raise their voice just to be heard.

Accurate Technologies was contacted to provide state of the art light fixtures.  The school’s requirements were specific. As with any LED retrofit, greater efficiency and lower maintenance costs were the goals.  They were to reach 100% operational brightness immediately, which is no problem for LEDs.  But the lights were to maintain the look of traditional High Bays, there was to be an increase in minimum lighting levels over the existing lighting, and the new lights had to be compatible with a radio frequency controlled dimming system which was supplied by a third party.

Lighting levels are important to the client in this application, so we used software to ensure the performance of our fixtures before installation.

Accurate’s first step was lighting analysis of the room, completed through a CAD rendering program. The lighting characteristics of the fixtures were loaded into the program and computer models were generated. We selected the proper fixture which met the requirements, our AT-HB-240W, with the optional dimming capability. These results were supplied to the engineer overseeing the project, who approved them.

The gymnasium after installation. 400w Metal Halide fixtures were replaced with 240w LEDs. Over 20 footcandles were gained in the center of the room. As an added feature, our LED fixtures were integrated with a radio frequency controlled dimming system. Now, the user has individual control over the brightness of each light in the room. Different scenes have been programmed for a variety of events.

Different scenes have been programmed for a variety of events.

Over the course of two days, the new lights were installed and wired to the dimming modules, and the control panel was programmed to the proper frequencies.  Every light now had its own address in the room, with precise control to run each individual light from 0% to 100% with an app.  Now, scenes could be saved for different lighting patterns.  A basketball or volleyball game is lit differently than a graduation ceremony or a science fair.   And that annoying buzz? Gone.

The 400w Metal Halide lights in this gym buzzed loudly, flickered, took over 5 minutes to reach full brightness and required regular maintenance. Now, the lights are silent, steady, reliable, and instantly operate at 100%. As an added feature, they can now be dimmed by use of a remote dimming system.

LED Retrofit for Exterior Canopy Lights

Accurate Technologies Helps Education Facility With LED Lighting

Accurate Technologies recently assisted Pasco Hernando State College, in upgrading the exterior hallway lighting for an complex of aging classroom buildings. In the process, we also had the opportunity to make recommendations on suitable replacement products for various areas around several campuses. The goals of the college included greater energy efficiency, more reliability and less maintenance with their equipment, and better quality of lighting. Since buildings had been added to their properties over several decades, there was a wide variation in existing light fixtures, types of lamps and even the color of the ‘white’ light from various light sources.

The decision was made that a consistent color standard of 4000K was to be implemented across all of their facilities. 4000K color temperature is a popular decision among commercial facility managers, since it provides a neutral balance between efficient light output and a comfortable warmth.

We provided LED retrofit modules for this facility's canopy lights. 30w modules replaced 100w Metal Halide lamps. The picture was taken after the bottom floor was retrofitted, but the top floor still had the original lamps.
We provided LED retrofit modules for this facility’s canopy lights. 30w modules replaced 100w Metal Halide lamps. The picture was taken after the bottom floor was retrofitted, but the top floor still had the original lamps. It’s apparent that the lower floor is much brighter, yet energy use is reduced by 70%.

As the project progressed, comparisons and tests were implemented between Accurate’s retrofit products and other technologies, particularly induction lighting. Tests were conducted and LED emerged as the best solution. Our AT-DML-E26-30W Directional Retrofit Module was chosen over 40w and 80w induction lamps.

At one area of PHSC’s main campus, there’s a cluster of two story buildings linked by exterior walkways, built in the 1970s. These walkways were originally lit with 70W mercury vapor HID lamps, and later upgraded to metal halide. Most were 100w, but there were a few 70w lamps mixed in, and even the odd high pressure sodium lamp here and there. The installation crew started with the bottom floor of the complex, removing the existing ballasts and wiring each socket directly to the incoming 277v lighting circuit. Then the 30w LED modules were installed.
Once the bottom floor was complete, the facility manager inspected the results and took these pictures.

The amazing thing about these pictures is that the ‘before’ and ‘after’ conditions are visible in the same photographs. There are no camera tricks here, this is the difference that a well planned LED retrofit can make. This project resulted in a 70% power reduction, an 80% heat reduction, lower maintenance costs and much higher quality and quantity of light.

Accurate Technologies also provided LED solutions for classroom areas, interior hallways, gymnasiums, stairwells, warehouses, libraries and auditoriums.
