Energy Focus LED Solutions: NASA Rocket Testing Approved
We actually have a whiter, cleaner light and a 70 percent reduction in energy.
How durable are Energy Focus LED lighting solutions? The kind of durable that can withstand a live rocket engine generating half a million pounds of thrust, 120 decibels of vibration, and temperatures in the thousands of degrees by ejecting hot gases at more than a dozen times the speed of sound. Simply put, NASA durable.
NASA’s rocket engine testing requires a lot of light, because of the camera equipment they use during testing. Traditionally that light has been provided by a host of metal halide bulbs. However, most of us know by now, metal halide bulbs can cost a small fortune in electricity costs and do not have the longest lasting power. They decided LED lighting would be the best option, which led them to find the Ohio-based company, Energy Focus. With Energy Focus’ reputation for creating Navy-tough LED lighting solutions, NASA’s decision wasn’t hard. Energy Focus was given two contracts to design floodlights that could withstand extreme conditions.
After completing the contract, Energy Focus utilized the same technology to create commercial and military grade products, such as the LED Hazloc Globe, Area and Flood Lighting, and Explosion-proof Globes. At Energy Focus, we believe quality should be first in mind when it comes to the consumers.
