AviLighting reduces energy costs by 50 percent when compared to competitive systems and provides a reliable LED light source for helping to foster the normal growth and development of poultry,' says Dr. James McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma.
North East, Maryland (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
AHPharma, Inc., a leading manufacturer and designer of services and products for the food animal industry, and i-lighting™, the leading manufacturer of the proprietary LED Lighting Simplified connection technology, have teamed up to introduce a new series of AviLighting™ high-intensity LED systems to improve the cost, energy and operational efficiencies of poultry feeding applications.
The new AviLighting product line now includes a series of control pan, feeder, layer and backyard flock water feeding systems operating at 24 volts to increase the intensity of the systems and the ability to consistently deliver biologically-humane LED lighting to poultry, according to animal welfare humane requirements. These products are also available with dimmable solutions and complete lighting solutions (avilighting.com/kits), providing all the components needed to easily install 300 to 600 ft. AviLighting systems operating with two to three feeder lines.
“We are dedicated to working with our customers in the poultry industry to continually meet their needs with new, exciting products that improve operational efficiencies as well as bottom lines,” adds Dr. James L. McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma. “The new, enhanced intensity of our AviLighting offers the ability to penetrate the skull of poultry with applications installed nine feet above feeder lines and with fewer LED bulbs. As a result, the system not only reduces energy costs by 50 percent when compared to competitive LED lighting systems, but also provides an ultra-reliable LED light source, helping to foster normal growth and hormonal development.”
The new AviLighting LED lighting system was co-engineered by i-lighting and AHPharma to meet the commercial live production lighting needs of areas related to bird migration/attraction and the brooding of chickens, turkeys and other poultry. Powered by a 24 Volt DC controller with solar & back-up power compatibility, the AviLighting System can lower energy costs by 86% to 96% when compared to the use of incandescent or cold-cathode lighting and by 50 percent over other ceiling socket-driven LEDs that meet poultry industry lighting requirements.
In addition, AviLighting was designed as a dual colored LED Feeder Light that can typically be used as the sole light source or as a supplement to existing ceiling LEDs to attract chicks evenly to feed and watering areas. Due to recent light intensity upgrades, AviLighting can now be installed throughout the entire house in order to attract birds to feed & water areas and simulate increased water and feed consumption. For those houses containing dimmable LEDs, supplemental AviLighting can also be installed to further promote very early brooding light attraction. Other benefits include:
- Efficiency: up to 96% reduction in energy costs per year
- Longevity: guaranteed for 5 years (diodes rated at 100,000+ hours)
- Simplicity: installation is intuitive, simple, and can be completed in a day (MINIMAL WIRING required. The system operates off of low-voltage currents that are sent down the shock cable and auger line to provide wireless energy transfer)
- Scalability: new units can be placed on the line to immediately emit as much light as necessary
- Dimmable: wireless remote controls give the operator wireless dimming power for each line of lights
- Industry standards: Only light source that meets the mandated min consistent 4 fc requirement at feed/water and minimizes “starve-outs of lost birds”
