It should not only ensure that athletes and coaches can see all the activities and scenes on the field clearly, but also meet the audience's good visual experience and the demand of TV broadcast of major events.

So, what kind of luminaires are suitable for stadium lighting? This will be based on the functional needs of the venue, amateur training, professional competitions and other stage performances. Sporting events tend to be held at night in order to get more viewership, which makes the stadium a power hog and puts the lighting fixtures to the test. Therefore, most of the stadiums and gymnasiums now use energy-saving and environmentally friendly, safe LED lighting fixtures. Compared to traditional light source of HID/MH, leds are 60 to 80 percent energy efficient. Traditional lamps and lanterns, such as the initial output power metal halide lamp lumens is 100 lm/W, maintenance factor of 0.7 to 0.8, but most of the sites in the use of 2 ~ 3 years droop were over 30%, not only including the attenuation of light source output, and contains from the oxidation of itself of lamps and lanterns, sealed performance is not good, pollution and other factors, such as respiratory problems, The actual lumen output is only 70lm/W.


Right now, the LED luminaires with its small power consumption, color quality adjustable, flexible control, instantaneous lighting and other unique characteristics, more suitable for all kinds of stadium lighting. For example, the E-LITE NED Sports stadium has an efficiency as high as 160-165lm/W, and L70>150,000 hours of constant illumination output, which ensures a constant illumination level and uniformity in the field, avoids the increase in illumination equipment demand and cost due to illumination attenuation, and reduces the power consumption of lighting equipment.

What’s the key points tothe modern stadiums light:

The modern multi-functional ball stadium can be divided into two areas according to the functional area, namely the main arena and the auxiliary area. The auxiliary area can be subdivided into auditorium, restaurant, bar, cafe, meeting room and so on.

How to choose stadium lighting lamps and sports lights?

1, must not glare, glare problem is still one of the main problems plaguing all stadiums.

2, long service life, light decline, low maintenance rate, low conversion rate of light.

3, there are security and after-sales service, when there is a failure of the light, can be returned for maintenance.

So, How to say: E-LITE NED Sports & Stadium Light Fixtures?

From Sports to Area and High Mast Lighting, New Edge flood light sets the standard in outstanding light quality with high performance and low light pollution.

Working at 160 Lm/W with light output up to 192,000lm, it outshines many other technology on the market. 15 optics ensures lighting design flexibility to fit different stadium architectures and high lighting quality, compliant with international broadcasting standards for any type of sports.

It has external driver box, supporting either separate for use at a distance from the floodlight, or pre-fixed onto the fixture for ease of installation and lower initial cost.

While delivering maximum light output, the floodlight LED engine has an excellent thermal management system, which in combination with its low weight and IP66 rating, helps maximize lifetime and minimize maintenance costs for both new built and retrofit installations.
