“Our research has shown that AviLighting can produce $17,000 or more in savings per year when used to replace 100W incandescent bulbs in poultry-rearing applications,” says Dr. James L. McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma.
North East, Maryland (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
AviLighting™, the first high-intensity LED lighting system engineered specifically for poultry rearing facilities, was designed by AHPharma and i-lighting™ to greatly increase energy efficiencies and lower operational costs, while providing a biologically-humane lighting solution according to animal welfare requirements. In fact, AviLighting has been shown to reduce energy costs by up to 96 percent when compared to the use of traditional incandescent products.
“While it is still one of the most common forms of lighting in poultry facilities, incandescent bulbs are also the least energy efficient among all the options,” says Dr. James L. McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma. “That’s why states nationwide are currently legislating the use of more environmentally-friendly lighting into new building projects. Although incandescent lamps are known for quick startups and warm color renditions, the gap has generally been closed with the newest LED light forms, which last far longer and offer substantial cost benefits over their lifespans.
“Our research has shown that AviLighting can produce $17,000 or more in savings per year when used to replace 100W incandescent bulbs in poultry-rearing applications. Plus AviLighting offers three times more light, requires less wattage and attracts 85 percent or more of the flock to water and feed lines. It’s just that simple. Birds eat and drink more after the installation of AviLighting Water & Feed Lights.”
The latest AviLighting LED lighting systems were co-engineered by AHPharma and i-lighting, a leading manufacturer of easy-to-install and cost-effective LED lighting, to meet the commercial live production needs of areas related to bird migration/attraction and the brooding of chickens, turkeys and other poultry. Powered by 24 volts DC, AviLighting is solar panel/back-up battery compatible. Each AviLighting™ Feeder Light consumes 5W compared to >8W for standard ceiling LEDs, >23W for CFLs and >60W for incandescent bulbs.
In addition, the rapidly-expanding AviLighting product line now includes a complete series of water line, control pan, feeder line, layer/cage and backyard flock lighting systems - operating at 24 volts to increase the light intensity, and consistency of each system. These products are also dimmable, water resistant, dust-proof, and include all the components needed for easy and rapid installation. 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 24-30 person hours
- MINIMAL WIRING is required. The patented Easy Plug® system allows an installer to simply “plug-and-play” when installing any AviLighting product. Additionally, by employing the auger line as the means of transferring negative charge to the fixtures, you save hundreds of dollars on wiring.
- Scalability: new units can be placed on the line to immediately emit as much light as necessary
- Dimmable: all AviLighting fixtures are dimmable down to 1% – providing a wide range of light intensity options for your poultry facility
