The Highs and Lows of Sports Lighting

Multi-purpose sports courts can pose a problem when trying to choose the right lighting. Besides the usual considerations of court size, desired lumen output, and avoiding issues relating to light pollution; different sports activities require different levels of light. A tennis court, whether residential or commercial, usually needs more light than other types of sports courts. A tennis ball is small and moves quickly. In order to keep track of it in the dark, players need a sufficient amount of illumination to see. In contrast, a basketball court will not need as much light to keep the players focused on the game. For some, particularly customers in the New England area, many sports courts double as ice skating rinks in the winter. Reflecting light from the ice can be overpowering and fixtures designated for nonreflective courts can become a hindrance. The good news is there are options for multi-sport courts that can adjust to suit the changing needs of the players.  Rather than stock up on different lamps for different sporting situations or settling for the wrong light output for a given circumstance, versatile fixtures can be utilized in different ways at different times. At Access Fixtures, our specialists have the ability to customize your lighting order to include dimming options. Any LED sports lighting package can be given a dimmable upgrade. With dimmable lighting, your lights can adjust to your needs. Our LED packages have two available dimming options: 0-10 volt gradual adjustment or step dimming, which adjusts the light to pre-determined outputs that can be programmed during factory assembly. Step dimming is useful for applications that require...

What Lighting is Best for a Flicker-Free Photography Environment?

After the 1972 Olympic games, photographers found that many of their pictures were pitch black. The issue wasn’t with their cameras, but with the lights. How could this be when the stadium was brightly lit by high intensity discharge (HID) lamps? Although the light may appear to be constant to the human eye, it’s actually not. HID lamps are an AC-powered source, which always causes flicker due to on/off cycles. While this flicker may not observable to the human eye, cameras are able to capture that fraction of a second when the lights are effectively off, resulting in pitch black photos. More than forty years later, flicker is still an issue for sports photographers. Recently, an indoor sports photographer contacted Access Fixtures wanting to know more about the flicker characteristics of LED vs. pulse-start metal halide (PSMH). As a professional photographer with a specialty involving fast-action sports, he has run into 60-cycle light flicker a number of times. The shutter speed on his camera is usually 1/640 of a second or faster, which leads to photos of varying exposures like the ones below. As one part of his job as a professional photographer, he often finds himself talking to club managers, advocating for brighter lighting and reduction in flicker. An Access Fixtures lighting specialists consulted with engineers who design our sports lighters as well as retrofit kits that can convert sports court lighting from HID to LED.  For those looking for a virtually flicker-free photography environment, the engineer recommended using non-dimming LED products. Flicker factor varies widely with LED products, but the primary cause is the addition of dimming capability....

How to Avoid Restrike Time With LED Sports Lighters

Most of us remember when the lights went out at the 2013 Super Bowl, resulting in a 34-minute delay. The delay was caused by the use of metal halide sports lighters. Metal Halide lamp and ballasts have a restrike time, which means even if you turn the lights back on it will take 15 to 20 minutes for the light to start to come on and gradually return to full brightness. When the lights go out at a sports stadium, metal halide lamps require a significant amount of time to restrike and warm up. Even with some pulse-start metal halide lamps requiring only several minutes to reach 90% of full brightness, patrons need light immediately in order to safely move about the stadium. Furthermore, the game is interrupted, leaving fans impatient. And if it’s the Super Bowl, it’s also keeping several million fans impatient. Because of this, stadiums often use fixtures that provide instant restrike so the stadium is safely illuminated after the lights go out. Unfortunately, instant restrike fixtures cannot be HID and require an excessive amount of energy, resulting in an extremely high energy bill and a lot of wasted energy. LED, on the other hand, is the ideal solution to this problem. Unlike HID sources, LED has instant on/off capabilities and instantly reaches full brightness. Unlike other instant restrike fixtures that often use halogen sources, LED is energy-efficient and won’t rack up the energy bill. Access Fixtures newest 567w LED sports lighter has the light output equivalent to a 1,500w metal halide sports lighter while using 65% less energy. It also lasts approximately 33 times longer...
