The Differences Between LED Highbay and High-intensity Discharge Industrial and Mining Lights

LED highbay are known for their energy efficiency. Below, we compare LED highbay to high-pressure sodium lamps.

The main characteristics of LED highbay

  • The light source uses a single high-power LED integrated light source, which adopts a unique multi-chip integrated single module light source design, and chooses imported high-brightness semiconductor chips. It has high thermal conductivity, low light decay, pure light color, and no shadow.

  • The unique heat dissipation and lamp shell integration design, combined with the electrical box, effectively conducts and spreads heat, thereby reducing the temperature inside the lamp body and ensuring the LED light source's lifespan of 50,000 hours. According to a calculation of lighting 11-12 hours a day, LED highbay do not need to be replaced for 12 years.

  • The surface of the heat dissipation body undergoes anodized anti-corrosion treatment. The structure is compact and beautiful and has good anti-corrosion, waterproof, and dustproof performance.

  • The energy-saving effect of LED highbay is significant. The lamp uses a high-power LED light source equipped with an imported high-efficiency power supply, which can save more than 70% of energy compared to sodium lamps.

  • It is environmentally friendly and pollution-free, containing no lead, mercury, or other polluting elements, and has no environmental pollution.

  • the LED high bay lights produced by the reliable LED high bay supplier have good color rendering, making the presentation of the actual color more realistic. Various light colors are available to meet the needs of different environments, eliminating the depression caused by the traditional light color temperature being too high or too low, making the visual experience more comfortable and improving workers' work efficiency.

  • It adopts constant-current and constant-voltage control, with a wide applicable voltage range (AC85V-265V), overcomes the lamp instability caused by ballasts that produce power grid noise pollution and avoids the stimulation and fatigue caused to the eyes during work.

  • It has excellent decorative effects, adopts special surface treatment technology, and has a variety of appearance colors to choose from. It is easy to install and disassemble and has a wide range of applications. Moreover, a wide range of customization options for LED high bay lights is provided by HPWINNER to fit any unique needs.

Comparison of high-pressure sodium lamps and LED highbay:

Comparison between 120W LED highbay and 250W high-pressure sodium lamps.


  • Power density selection: the power density of traditional lamps is in the range of 10-25 watts/square meter, and the power density of LED lamps can be designed within the range of 3-15 watts/square meter. LED lamps in general offices are designed at 3-10 watts/square meter; for hotels and shopping malls that require higher brightness, they can be designed at 10-15 watts/square meter.

  • Power selection: The power of LED highbay is considered 1/5 of the power of high-pressure sodium lamps.

  • Power factor: The power factor of LED light is above 0.95, while the power factor of traditional high-pressure sodium lamps is around 0.6.

  • Power supply efficiency: LED highbay have a power supply efficiency of over 0.9, while traditional high-pressure sodium lamps have a power supply efficiency of around 0.6.

  • Lifespan: LED light sources have a lifespan of 30,000-50,000 hours, while traditional high-pressure sodium lamps have a lifespan of 3000-8000 hours.

  • By using LED lighting, the cable and transformer capacity for lighting can be reduced. Compared with traditional lighting, at least half of the investment in transformers and cables can be reduced.
