Have you ever wondered what does HID stand for? High-intensity discharge lights (HID lights) are a type of electrical lamp which produces light by means of an electric arc between two electrodes inside a tube filled with gas and metal salts. This particular method of illumination results in a greater proportion of radiation becoming visible light rather than heat. For that reason, HID lighting is a powerful, high-volume light output solution mostly used in commercial and industrial applications, such as warehouse lighting, outdoor security lights, parking garage lighting or even for automotive high intensity headlight bulbs. HID lamps encompass different categories, such as High-Pressure Sodium lamps, Metal Halide lamps and Mercury Vapor lamps. Our experts at Lumenco will be pleased to assist you in comparing the pros and cons of these various HID lighting solutions to help you find the one most suited to your project.
