Halogen or led lights which better for basketball court lighting?

When choosing basketball court lighting fixtures, halogen lamps and LED lamps have their own advantages and disadvantages, which need to be weighed according to specific needs and scenarios. The following is a detailed comparison and induction of the two lamps:

 

Halogen lamp (HID lamp)

Advantages:

 

High brightness: Halogen lamps have a high brightness, which can provide sufficient light on the basketball court to ensure that athletes and spectators can clearly see the game.

High luminous efficiency: halogen lamp luminous efficiency can reach 17-33lm/w, with high energy conversion efficiency.

Long range, strong penetration: The halogen lamp has a long range and strong penetration, and can achieve good lighting effects even if it is installed far away from the sidelines of the court.

Easy maintenance: Halogen lamp maintenance is relatively simple, easy to replace and maintain.

Cons:

 

High energy consumption: Halogen lamp power is large, energy consumption is relatively high, long-term use will increase operating costs.

The service life of halogen lamps is generally 1000-2000 hours, and the bulbs need to be replaced frequently, increasing maintenance costs.

Light attenuation is small, but the brightness decreases after light decay: although the light attenuation of halogen lamps is small, the brightness will decrease significantly after light decay, affecting the lighting effect.

Severe glare: Halogen lamp glare is more serious, may affect the athlete’s visual judgment.

LED light

Advantages:

 

Energy saving and environmental protection: LED lamps have lower energy consumption, compared with halogen lamps can significantly reduce energy consumption, in line with the requirements of energy saving and environmental protection.

Long life: The long life of LED lights can generally reach more than 50,000 hours, which greatly reduces the frequency and maintenance costs of replacing bulbs.

Uniform and soft light: The light of LED lights is uniform and soft, which helps to improve the visual comfort of athletes and reduce visual fatigue.

Fast response speed: The response speed of the LED light is fast, and it can be lit and extinguished in an instant, which is suitable for various competition scenes.

Cons:

 

High initial investment: The initial investment cost of LED lights is relatively high, but considering its long-term energy saving and long life characteristics, the overall cost effectiveness is still high.

Heat dissipation problem: The heat output of LED lights is large, and effective heat dissipation measures need to be taken, otherwise the service life and lighting effect of the lamps may be affected.

Relatively weak penetration: Compared with halogen lamps, LED lamps have relatively weak penetration, and may need to be adjusted in the installation position and number to achieve the ideal lighting effect.

Induction and comparison

Energy saving and environmental protection: LED lights have obvious advantages in energy saving and environmental protection, and are an ideal choice to respond to low-carbon environmental protection policies.

Life and maintenance: LED lights have long life, low maintenance costs, and significant long-term operating benefits.

Lighting effect: The light of LED lights is uniform and soft, which helps to improve the visual comfort of athletes; Halogen lamp brightness is high but glare is serious, which may affect the visual judgment of athletes.

Cost and investment: Although the initial investment cost of LED lights is higher, the overall cost effectiveness is still high considering its long-term energy saving and long life characteristics.

conclusion

Considering the demand for lighting fixtures in basketball courts and the advantages and disadvantages of the two lamps, LED lights are a more suitable choice. It can not only provide sufficient, uniform, soft light, but also has the advantages of energy saving and environmental protection, long life, low maintenance costs, and can meet the lighting needs of basketball court games and training. Of course, when selecting LED lights, it is also necessary to pay attention to factors such as its quality, heat dissipation performance and installation position to ensure the best lighting effect.
