Low-bay and high-bay LED lights are both types of lighting luminaires used in industrial and commercial environments. What is the difference? Here's a breakdown of the two:


      • Mounting height is the best way to compare high bay vs. low bay light.
        Low-bay lights are designed for illuninating spaces with relatively lower mounting heights, typically ranging from 3.7 to 6 meters. They are commonly used in areas like small warehouses, garages, workshops, and retail stores.
        High-bay lights are designed for illuninating taller spaces with mounting heights typically ranging from 6 to 14 meters or even higher. They are commonly used in senarios such as large warehouses, manufacturing facilities, sports arenas, and hangars.

      • Mounting method:
    • Low bay light is suspended (or pendant mounted) mounted with chains or hooks.
    • High bay light can hang from the ceiling using a hook, chain, or surface mounted to the ceiling directly (requiring bracket or fixing kit) like a troffer light.
    •  
      • Lighting Distribution:
        Low-bay fixtures provide a wide beam angle, dispersing light over a larger area horizontally. They offer more uniform illumination and help eliminate shadows and dark spots in the workspace.
    • High-bay fixtures have a narrower beam angle, focusing the light more directly downward. This concentrated lighting helps to provide higher illuminance levels at greater distances and is suitable for areas with high ceilings. 
    • Light Output:
  • Low-bay lights generally provide lower lumen output compared to high-bay lights. They are suitable for applications where a moderate level of illumination is sufficient.
    High-bay lights generally offer higher lumen output, providing brighter illumination over larger areas. They are designed to compensate for the increased height and deliver adequate lighting levels for large, open spaces.

In concept, 0-10 Volt dimming is one of the oldest and, in some ways, most simplistic form of dimming, it is a lighting control technique that enables you to adjust the brightness of a light source by regulating the voltage supplied to it.

May .13.2024
PWM is a lighting control method by reducing the average deliverable power of an electrical signal. The basic principle of pulse width modulation (PWM) dimming is to apply a series of electrical pulses to the LED driver circuit, where the width, or duration, of each pulse determines the amount of time the LED is turned on.
