Indoor HID Fixtures

Sometimes, traditional lighting is not bright enough to illuminate a large workplace area sufficiently. When large buildings and warehouses or stadiums need lighting, they need high-output fixtures. Grainger provides High Intensity Discharge, or HID, fixtures for these specific needs. With Grainger, building managers can find not only the fixtures and housing for these HID light fixtures, but also the sodium and metal halide bulbs necessary to create an entire lighting system. Whether the need is to shine a bright light down on the gym floor or provide light to an industrial plant, HID light fixtures are the right choice.

HI,

We are currently using High intensity discharge lights in our cooler warehouse. As you can see from the attached picture, the heat coming from the light is at about 140F where as the surrounding area is at 65 F. We are looking for a more efficient and less heat emitting light source without decreasing the luminescence.

We appreciate your help. Thanks

Answer: 
A mercury vapor bulb (lamp) cannot be replaced with a metal halide bulb (lamp) in the same fixture.

Metal Halide lamps have ANSI codes that are different from the ANSI codes of Mercury Vapor. The ANSI codes of the ballast must match the ANSI code of the lamp.

Due to the necessity of having to swap lamps, replace the ballast with a corresponding Metal Halide same-ANSI-coded ballast, and sometimes, even having to replace the lamp holder, it is usually more cost-effective to simply replace the entire fixture. This prevents you from having to spend money on labor to re-engineer and retrofit the fixture from Mercury Vapor to Metal Halide.

Here are some examples of ANSI codes

ANSI, Description
H33, 400 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H36, 1000 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H37, 250 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H38, 100 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H39, 175 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H42, 125 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor (European)
H43, 75 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor
H46, 50 Watt Standard Mercury Vapor

ANSI Description
M47, 1000 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M48, 1500 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M57, 175 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M58, 250 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M59, 400 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M80, 250 Watt Metal Halide (probe start) (double ended)
M81, 150 Watt Metal Halide (probe start) (double ended)
M85, 70 Watt Metal Halide (probe start) (double ended)
M90, 100 Watt Metal Halide (probe start/pulse start)
M91, 100 Watt Metal Halide (probe start) (double ended)
M98, 70 Watt Metal Halide (probe start)
M102, 150 Watt Metal Halide (probe start/pulse start)
M107, 150 Watt Metal Halide (energy saving probe start)
M110, 50 Watt Metal Halide (probe start/pulse start)
M128, 400 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start)
M130, 35/39 Watt Metal Halide
M133, 1500 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start) (double ended)
M134, 2000 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start) (double ended)
M135, 400 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start)
M137, 175 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start)
M138, 250 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start)
M139, 70 Watt Metal Halide (ceramic) (double ended)
M140, 100 Watt Metal Halide (ceramic) (double ended)
M142, 150 Watt Metal Halide (ceramic) (double ended)
M155, 400 Watt Metal Halide (pulse start)

Answer: 
Grainger does not stock a 75w high pressure sodium lamp or fixture. We do stock a few different models in 70w and 100w. Examples are Grainger items numbers 3GB11 and 5YB61 for the 70w and 3GB58 and 3YA77 in the 100w. Please call us at 800-323-0620 so we can discuss these fixtures and other potential options.

Answer: 
The ANSI code may not be on the outside of the fixture, depending on the manufacturer. If the lamp is not legible, open up the housing and look at the model number on the ballast. We can assist with referencing the ballast or lamp number at 800-323-0620.

We have a large warehouse space (with high ceilings) where we have @10 HID fixtures hanging. All but one of the bulbs light...and the one that lights is dim. All these bulbs were replaced, new, less than a year ago.
The tenant has not turned the heat on in the building and I was wondering if the cold weather is a factor in regards to these lights.

Answer: 
Mercury vapor lamps do not require the heat you suggest. Sounds like the ballast has gone bad in the fixture. Unfortunately the mercury vapor ballasts have been obsolete since 2008. Please call us at 800-323-0620 so we can assist you in picking out a new fixture.

Answers

Answer: 
The difference is in the manner in which the ballast powers the lamp. The probe start will not have an ignitor. The ballasts and lamps have to match, probe-probe, pulse-pulse and wattage to wattage from ballast to lamp, respectively.

Answers

Answer: 
A 25 foot ceiling does not give us enough information to determine high or low bay.

To determine this, we need the working height from the bottom lens of the fixture to the working height surface. For example, if you have a metal halide fixture (about 2' in height) mounted to the ceiling and your main working surface is on a 42" bench, your working height would be 19'-6". If the floor is your main work height and you install a 6" tall fluorescent fixture to the ceiling, the working height is 24'-6".

Above 20' working height you would choose a high bay fixture; below 20', a low bay fixture.

Answer: 
Grainger item number 22PV27 is the closest match, that Grainger stocks, to the lamp you are looking for. The manufacturer suggests this lamp is roughly equivalent to a 200w HID lamp.
