What is LED high bay light?

LED high bay light is a high-power lighting tool made of LED light-emitting diodes. LED lamps are the best products in existing lighting lamps and are widely used in various factories, workshops, warehouses, construction sites, and exhibition halls. And the lighting system of large supermarkets and other places. LED bay lights are also led industrial lights. High bay lights are an important part of urban industrial lighting. Traditional high bay lights often use 250W and 400W metal halide lamps. Metal halide lamps emit light at 360 degrees. Huge waste. Therefore, the development of new high-efficiency, energy-saving, long-life, high color rendering index and environmentally friendly LED high bay lamps is of great significance to the national industrial lighting energy conservation. High bay lighting is closely related to industrial production. LED high bay lights have gradually entered people’s field of vision with the advantages of directional light emission, low power consumption, good driving characteristics, fast response speed, high shock resistance, long service life, and green environmental protection. It has become the new-generation energy-saving light source that has the advantage of replacing traditional light sources in the world. Therefore, LED high bay lights will become the best choice for lighting energy-saving renovation in the field of traditional large-scale industrial plant lighting, and it is also the general trend.

Functional classification of LED high bay lights

General lighting

LED high bay lights are used for general lighting (or factory lighting) and are usually arranged evenly on the top or side walls of the workplace to illuminate the entire work surface. The lamps usually use traditional metal halide high bay lights and metal halide flood lights. or a larger number of fluorescent lamps. Of course, today’s market and lighting places basically use high-power LED high bay lights, LED flood lights, LED flood lights, etc. that are more environmentally friendly and energy-saving. Generally, lighting lamps have higher requirements on the distribution of light, and two types of light distribution, direct lighting type, and semi-direct lighting type are widely used, especially the latter. LED high bay light is used for semi-direct lighting type, and part of the light emitted upward illuminates the ceiling, which can increase the brightness of the ceiling and create a more comfortable and brighter environment.

Local lighting

LED high bay lights are used for local lighting, which are lamps to improve the illumination of a certain working part. Its function can be to strengthen and supplement lighting on the basis of general lighting, or it can be used as temporary lighting in some places that do not need lighting at ordinary times (such as equipment maintenance and maintenance places). There are mostly no strict regulations on their light distribution. This type of LED high bay light is usually installed near the working area and uses incandescent lamps and tungsten halogen lamps with safety extra-low voltage (S50V AC RMS) as the light source. At present, in some tall workshops, most of them use high-power LED factory lights or narrow-color LED high bay lights, or LED flood lights for local lighting.

Features of LED high bay lights

The lamp body of the LED high bay light is made of high-strength die-casting aluminum material, and the surface is anti-aging electrostatic spraying treatment, which is self-cleaning and corrosion-resistant.

High-quality Kerui LED products are used, with high stability and a long life span of 25,000 to 50,000 hours, which is more than 10 times longer than traditional light sources, achieving low investment and high return.

Why choose LED high bay lights?

With the development of social productive forces and the advancement of science and technology and the gradual increase of industrial areas, the power consumption of industrial workshops accounts for the heaviest proportion of the total power consumption. In addition to a large number of industrial zones, there is also an important reason that many factory workshops still use traditional lamps. Traditional lamps are used in large quantities, which are not energy-saving, consume large amounts of electricity, are not environmentally friendly, and the materials have the problem of polluting the environment. In order to respond to the national call for energy conservation and emission reduction, it is also urgent to upgrade the lighting in the factory workshop. How to choose the lighting fixtures in the factory workshop?

Industrial plants are divided into high, medium, and low ceiling lighting. The specific lighting requirements are reasonably designed according to the needs of the production environment. The safety and comfort of operators can improve work efficiency and product quality. Therefore, it is necessary to use high-efficiency led high bay lights to save energy and reduce energy consumption.

How to choose a suitable high bay light?

The ceilings of industrial workshops with large-scale machinery are very high, which is the lighting of medium and high ceilings. Generally, LED high bay lights with high light efficiency and high efficiency are used. From the perspective of ceiling height and design illuminance, it is necessary to choose suitable light distribution lamps. For medium-height ceilings with an installation height of about 5-10M, it is recommended to use medium-illuminated and wide-illuminated light distribution lamps, with wide illumination angles and uniform illumination, no glare, and no stroboscopic lamps.

Most of the smaller production lines and assembly lines in industrial plants are lighted with low ceilings and low ceilings. It is recommended to use LED fluorescent tubes with higher luminous efficiency and add light panels. When the installation height is 2 to 4M, the straight tube LED light source is a better choice. The right light source can create a comfortable environment with natural comfort, high brightness, and long life.

In the process of lighting transformation of the factory workshop, LED high bay lights and LED light tubes can be combined to configure LED high bay lights in relatively high places, and LEDt8 light tubes in low places. This way of matching can not only achieve lighting demand, and can reduce costs very well!

Led factory workshop high bay light, the lampshade type led high bay light commonly used in workshops, UFO high bay light is now popular in the market, this UFO high bay light is welcomed by the domestic and foreign markets, compared with the lampshade type led high bay light, UFO high bay light has high luminous efficiency, Lightweight, beautiful appearance, easy to transport.


I hope that you can have a certain understanding of LED industrial lighting through the above introduction. If you have any questions about product selection, installation, or lighting simulation, please contact our lighting team, we are at your service 24/7.


Choosing low-bay lighting or high-bay lighting depends on your ceiling height. Low bay fixtures are only suitable for ceilings 12-20 feet high, and light intensity is generally less than 100 watts. High-bay fixtures can illuminate ceilings 20-45 feet high, with light levels generally above 100 watts.

Named for its UFO-like shape, UFO LED high bay lights are ideal for replacing or retrofitting traditional HID high bay lights with high performance and long life. Widely used in workshops, warehouses, gymnasiums, shopping malls, and other places.
