HrcH-tNTENStTy DISGHARGE
The term "high-intensity discharge lamps,' commonly called "H/D lamps," describes a varietv of
light sources. Their common characleristic is ihat
they. consist ol gaseous-discharge arc tubes,
which operate at pressures and cu-rrent densities
sufficient.to generate desired quantities of luminous radiation within their arc only. The differences then between the various Hlb lamD tvoes
is the arc tube construction (material) dnd''the
metallic additives inside the arc tube.
Today, there are three common HID lamps:

Mercury Vapor
: BOnus Line Mercury
Metal Halide
= l\4u tti-Vaporo
High Pressure Sodium : Lucalox@
. Not only do these HID lamps have varying mechanical
construction-they also have'difierent
ellrcrencies, starting characteristics, color rendition. lumen maintenance, price and iife. Thus thev

engineers,

through continuing research and development, are searching


for the optimum in materials and processes to meet this
need. The ALGLAS reilector finish is a result of this effort.
The ALGLAS tinish is a thin, transparent, llexible coating
of very high quality glass which is chemically bonded to the
aluminum of the reflector. Ihe retlector is accurately formed
into the shape desired for precise optical performance. Then,
it is dipped into a solution of silicate material, dried, and
heat treated at temperatures in the annealing range ot the
aluminum. The unique ALGLAS film is formed consisting of
more than 95% Silica (SiOt chemically bonded to tbe alumi
num. The Iinished product combines desirable qualities of
aluminum and glass and eliminates undesirable qualities of
each.

ALGLASJinished reflectors have the following basic properties:

1. Physical characteristics
Strong, yet lightweight and
impact resistant. The glass -film is highly elastic and will
crack only when bent approximately 170' on a radius oI /s".
2. Chemical stability
Because it is inert, the glass coating
affords high resislance to corrosive environments. Because il

is dip treated, both the inner and outer

surfaces

INSIATTAIION AUDIBIT!il
Method for Estimating H.l.D. Lighling lnstallation Audibitity
Lighting Syslem Noise Criterion (LSNC) Rating

INTRODUCTION
lncreased use of H.l.D. Iighting in commercial and
institutional interiors has shown a need for a more
critical method of rating the audibility of a planned
inslallation. Satisfactory installations can in mosl instances be achieved if ihe equipment is selected for
compatability with the ambient sound levels to be
found in the area due to air-conditioning and ventilation. people- music. and other equipmenl such as typewriters, cash registers, elc,
A new lighting system noise ratinq method has been
formulated by cE to enable the tighting designer to
make this selection with a maximum of accuracy (so
large safety faclors are not needed) and a minimum
of.computation. The rating is designed so that only the
minimum knowledge of acoustics presented he;e is
sufficient to rate a planned installation.
The new rating is called the Lighting System NC
-Rating.
A typical rating is of the form LSNC-4s, LSNC
50. etc. lt is determined by averaging measurements
made on six unils of the type to be rated selected
at random from ihose manufactured. General Electric
has shown that sufficient statistical accuracy requires
that six units be tested. A recently adopted standard
specifies that "one or more'i be tested. (See NE[,4A
Publication LE2-1974, "HlD Lighting System Noise
Criterion ILSNC] Ratings".) Experience has shown that
audibility of a lighting system does not depend on the
absolute sound level but whether the hum is audible
above the ambient noise present in the room. ll the
hum blends into the background noise, the installalion
is inaudible. We say, in this case, that it is masked by
the background noise. lf the hum obtrudes above the
ambient, then the installation may be audible or even
annoying.

THE MASKING AMBIENT RATING


.Specifically, the Lighting Systems NC Rating is the
minimum level of backoround noise which masks the
hum from a 100 footcandle installation of the units in
a typical indoor environment, The numerical ratino on

where the ambient is 35 dBA, the hum will be audible,


and even possibly annoying to some listeners. For an
ambient in the range 40 to 50 dBA, the hum may or

may not be audible depending on the listener. This


region is called "possibly audible" on the Audibility

Chart in Figure 1.
Note that often a contractor, consultant. or owner inspecls an installation prior to occupancy. or even prior
to completion of the air-conditioning or other equip-

ment which

APPLICATION EXAMPLE:
RATING A TYPICAL INSTALLATION
SUppose a particular lamp/ballast/f ixture unit

lf.the LSNC-42 systeni is instatied in a typical supermarket or merchand;sinq store where the ambient
sound levels range from 50 to 65 dBA, the hum will
be completely inaudible as indicated on the audibi!ity
chart (Figure 1). lf, however, the room is a librari

fe

acoustic tile ceiling, hard walls, and hard floor.

For those installations which depart from the Iighting

or acoustic character of the reference installation used


as a basis for the rating, the lighting designer who
wants greater accuracy must apply several correction
factors to the basic rating assigned to ihe product.
These corrections are usually small so that the system
contains reasonable safeguards against misapplicatjon.

The loIo,^ing is a step-by-step melhod ol obtairring

this masking ambient is qiven in terms of the n;ise


criterion (NC) curve which describes it. From the definition of the NC curves this rating is simply 8 dB less
than lhe sound pressure level one would irbasure with
a sound level meter (A-scale) in a room having such
an ambient noise level. ln other words. if a luminaire
is rated LSNC-42, the minimum noise ambient which
will mask the hum of a 100 footcandte installation ot
such units is 50 dBA sound pressure level.

lf the designed installation departs in acoustic treatment from the typical room, lhe room
reverbration correction factor LB must be applied to the ratinq. The tvpical room has an
acoustic tile ceiling, walls, and floor. A wide
range of acoustic reflectances can be encountered among practical interior surfaces.
However, significant corrections to the rating
occur primarily for highly reverberant rooms
such as gymnasium, swimming pool, and
Iarge auditorium installations. A good rule

WHY ENCLOSED FILTERED?

WHY OPEN-VENTILATED?

Why? because Filterglow@ and Lowmount@ units


stay clean inside lor maximum lighting elficiency
and lowest total cost of light.
With Filterglow and Lowmount luminaires, light
output stays high. You get more of the light you're
paying for, longer
plus high maintained
- l/aintenance cosls govisibility
on working surfaces.
down,
too. A once-in-a-while wipe-off of lhe outside of
the door glass is all the maintenance normally
needed between lamp changes.
As a lighting system performs, light output is reduced because:
. Lamp light output depreciates with use. Near the
end of lamp lile, some lamps are less than half
as bright as the day they were first turned on.
. Dirt and contaminants collecting on the luminaire interior and lamp surlace significantly reduce light output. This occurrence is greatly increased if the luminaire is cycled "on" and "oll"

Why?, because the open ventilated construction


of GE Duraglow, Miniglow@ and Econoglow@ luminaires features a llow-thru "chimney actlon" that
carries dirt right out the reflector.
As shown below, the heating eflect ol the lamp
causes a noticeable llow of air to move past the
lamp and through the reflector. ln lact, the air
moves so rapidly that dry airborne dirt and dust
particles do not "drop out" onto the reflector sur-

face.

every day.

Even enclosed luminaires "breathe." When the


lamp is hot, air is forced out of the optical assembly. When the lamp is cooling. air is brought
in, depositing Iight-dimminq contaminants on the
lamp, reflector, and inside ol the door glass.
With the enclosed GE Filterglow and Lowmount
luminaires, incoming air passes through a molded
piece of activated charcoal. This filter stops atmospheric contaminants before they can do their dirty

work.

Filtering aclion is not continuous. Cleaning only


occurs during expansion, when the unit is turned
on, and contraction, when it is turned off.

This self-cleaning action is only ellective in installations where the luminaires operate continuously 24 hours per day. When the luminaires are
turned off, the movement of air is no longer present and the "flow-thru" feature is lost. Without the
air flow assistance, the reflector accumulates dirt
like any other exposed surface.
Hence, the open ventilated fixture design is recommended where fixtures are operated contlnuously or in locations where the units are cycled
"on" and "oJl" only if the surrounding atmosphere
is dry and clean.

/o

FILTERED Vs. UNFILTERED

outsld

Filter elements last indelinitely under normal


conditions. And because there's no internal pressure build up-high reliability sealing is enhanced.
When calculating the efficiency of a total system,
designers must account for a decrease in initial
efficiency with a "maintenance factor." Regular
cleaning and relamping programs are necessary
at intervals to recover this lost efficiency. Howevei,
with the Filterglow and Lowmount luminaires, the
light lost due to the effects ol dirt is dramatically
reduced.
The table on Page 10-11 suggests typical maintenance factors for several types of industrial lighting fixtures. The significaniiy higher maintena"nce
factors for Filterglow units are a major plus for
lndustrial lighting users who seek the lowest total
cost ol light.

LUMINAIRE DIRT DEPRECIATION


The light output of any lighting system depreciates with use. This "lost" light causes a corresponding decrease in light level at the work surface. This depreciation is explained by:
.1.
The normal light output depreciation of the
lamp source. (See discussion Page 4.)
2. The accumulation of dust and dirt on:
a. Building ceiling, walls and floor
b. Lamps
c. Luminaires
The accumulation of contaminants on the lamp
and on the luminaire interior reflector surfaces
can be appreciable and must be carefully considered when selecting a fixture type to use.

As ls itue of most electtical components, over lemperature operation of


luminaires should always be avoided- 0peration of electricai devices at

Conversely, operation ai 10'C below rated ambient will greaily increase

The Lowmount luminaire brings the economics
and convenience of HID light sources to the lower
mounting heights (10-20 ft.) where briqhtness has
traditionally excluded them. The optical assembly
is totally enclosed, gasketed, and filtered to keep
contaminants from reaching the lamp, reflector, or
inside ot the refractor.
The unique Lowmount luminaire accommodates

for maximum 40o Centigrade ambients. The ambient limitation is a result of the acrylic refractor
and is independent of the electrical components.

and Minimount luminaires can be provided with
automatically swiiched quartz emergency lighting
to provide "instant on" emergency lighting where
momentary power interruptions or extreme voltage
dips can extinguish an HID lamp. A single ended
250-watt quartz lamp(s) (Q250CL/DC) is placed in
the same reflector with the mercury, metal hallde,
or Lucalox@ lamp.
The quartz lamp will remain on until the HID
lamp reaches approximately 60% of full light out
put. This also means that the quartz lamp will
come on when the luminaire is initially energized
and remain on until the HID lamp reaches about
60% light output.
Available in 400- or 1000-watt Luminaires and
all system voltages 120-,208-,240-,277- and 480volt, with mercury, metal halide, or Lucalox lamp.
Wiring for said lamp is accomplished internal
to the ballast and therefore the quartz lamp voltage (12o-volts) is independent of the lighting system voltage. The standard oflering will provide
ONE 250-watt quartz lamp per HID optical assembly. Two, 250-watt quartz, are available on some
ballast voltage configurations, if required.
Caution should be utilized when sizing branch
circuits with luminaires containing the switched
quartz option as the Iuminaire will draw additional
current during the warm up period, since both
lamps (Quartz and HID) are in operation.
NON'AUTOMATICALLY SWITCHED QUARTZ

STYTMOUNTThe Stylmount luminaire is a low-wattage, Iowbrightness luminaire specifically designed for inverted T-bar ceilings. The luminaire combines a
unique fluted reflector with a black Alzakf aperture
cone to virtually eliminate source brightness.
The architecturally pleasing ceiling appearance

achieved by using this luminaire permits the eye

to focus on desired objects and not the ceiling.


The Stylmount luminaire is ideally suited for
mass merchandising applications, malls, covered
walkways, lobbles, public buildings and service
facilities.
