How to wire led batten lights
This part of the article shows how to wire a led batten light in a simple, basic, and clear manner.
Here is a step-by-step instruction on how to wire a LED batten light.
- Switch off the power supply before installation.
- Read the installation manual sheet carefully and be familiar with the luminaire and installation processes.
- Detach the upper part from the lower part by pulling them apart from one end. The cable between the upper part and base part can be disconnected if it is connected for ease of installation.
- Determine where you wish to place the led batten and mark the points at which the led batten will be fixed. If you are making use of a surface conduit box, please make sure the boxes are at 600mm centres.
- Drill and secure the main body/base in place, dressing the supply cable through either of the three rear entry points or end caps.
- Connect the mains wiring as indicated in the guide below,
Brown (L) Live, Blue (N) Neutral, and Green/Yellow (G/Y) Earth.a
- Put up the led tray and connect the two support straps to the tabs on the main body.
- Connect the led supply wire and earth connections, then snap the LED plate onto the main body, making sure that it is properly located along the whole length without trapping any cables.
- Activate and switch on the power supply to test the luminaire.
How to change the light in led batten
This is a step-by-step guide to change the batten light. Follow the process step by step.
Step 1: Disconnect the led batten light from its source of electricity.
Trying to change the light in the light batten without disconnecting the power supply is more like a suicide mission as the individual doing that will be at high risk of electrical shock.
Step 2: Look out for the ballast and expunge them.
If the fitting has an electronic ballast, you have to get rid of it so as to prevent damage to the LED tube.
Sever or cut the wires from the ballast unit and expunge the unit, connect the loose wires to create a circuit. Ensure the connections are secure and insulated.
If the fixture and the tube is magnetic ballast, you will either need to remove or bypass a magnetic ballast entirely.
Step 3: Connect the new light tube carefully.
Carefully and gently connect your new LED tube to the fixture. On one end of the tube, there is a live connection while at the other end is a neutral connection.
Make sure the wires in the fitment correspond to this because connecting both live and neutral to one end of the LED tube, will cause a short circuit.
Step 4: Reconnect the led batten back to the source of the power supply.
Before doing this, make sure that all the steps above have been checked thoroughly, and there are no wires left loose.
Switch on the light and check if the luminaire is functioning and operating properly.
The led tube is not meant to flicker or make a buzzing sound. If you experience this, disconnect the light from the electricity supply then follow the steps above all over.
Step 5: Properly discard the old tubes.

LED Downlight is a kind of light fixture which is put in a hollow cavity in the ceiling.
Downlights are one of the commonly used lighting fixtures in modern houses. It produces warm lighting which is unobtrusive when compared to other lighting fixtures.
This feature makes the downlight extremely popular.
Although downlights are popular, some people end up buying a not so good or imperfect one. When choosing a downlight for your home there are some features that need to be considered.
One of the few things to be considered when getting a downlight include;
✅ The Energy consumed and how bright the light is. In contrast to other lighting fixtures, Led downlights produce a very bright beam of light.
At the same time, it also consumes a considerably low amount of energy.
✅ Beam Angle: this is the quantity of light that spreads from the light and it is mostly measured in angles. In contrast to the ordinary light fixtures that have a beautiful angle of 360°, most downlights have a beam angle of 45°.
In selecting a beam angle for your downlights, we will suggest that you do that with respect to where the downlights will be fixed and the type of lighting you want in the room.
✅ Spacing: when installing downlights we must consider the spacing with respect to the beam angle in order to ensure proper lighting of the house.
When using a download with a small beam angle, the spacing should be about 1m but if the bond angle is greater the spacing should also be greater at about 1.5m.
✅ Color Rendering Index: CRI is the measure of how well a light will show the colour of an object when compared to how the colour of the object will be shown under natural sunlight.
Getting and fixing a downlight in your home is good, but getting and installing the best and perfect downlight is often not that easy.

The Story of LEDs
A lot of innovations in lighting in recent years can be traced to the LED industry, in 2014 the three scientists who invented the original blue led, known for its efficiency, won Nobel Prizes in Physics.
Due to this fact, the United Nations famously dubbed 2015 as the Year of Light.
The purpose behind this was to raise awareness and encourage moving away from traditional bulbs towards a more promising future, where LED lights would make up the majority of the market.
With such awards and international recognition, we might be led to think that LED lighting has reached its pinnacle, but in reality, the future seems to be even more promising.
The development of LED technology is far from done and as such it’s becoming more and more important to businesses and consumers alike.
Globally LED lights already make up about half of all light sources. Needless to say, this is a tremendous achievement, but according to researchers, by 2030 approximately 87% of all light sources could be LEDs.
A big part of why LED lighting is taking over the global market can be credited to just how more commercially viable they are.
LED lights have lesser energy costs, a much longer lifespan and for basically all general applications – better quality.
Another reason for the swift rise in market share and the projected numbers is their constant development.
The possible applications and existing features for LED lights are an ever-expanding list.
Just the betterment of lumen density (measuring unit for brightness) has made LEDs a viable option for massive commercial uses, such as lighting bridges, stadiums, and other giant structures or spaces.
At the same time, as LED technology is getting better, they become more affordable for the average consumer or business.
While it’s true that the led market is rapidly growing, most Australians don’t demand anything fancy from their lights, they just need it to be able to turn off and on.
But this status quo will is changing, and it’s changing fast.
As mentioned previously, one of the reasons why researchers believe LEDs will dominate the market more and more as years go on is the constant development of this technology.
Now LED lights don’t just need to have an on and off switch – they need to be intelligent and efficient. As Steve Kennelly, a senior manager for lighting and medical at Microchip Technology inc. stated
“Being able to adjust the light… not only the brightness but the colour as well… is very important.
Consumers now want networking, so the lights can talk to each other.”
This need for more than just on and off is happening in every market and country alike, and Australia is no exception.
Whether it’s in cameras, street lighting, fridges, automobiles, machine vision systems – they all are moving towards the same trend.
Even in the medical industry, physicians would like the freedom to lower, raise and change the brightness and colour of their lights. The possibilities are endless for businesses and consumers alike.
Why Is LED Industry Growing So Fast?
- LED lights last longer. They can last as long as 100 000 hours, approximately equivalent to 30 years, without malfunctioning.
- LED lights can save energy and money. LED lights can save up to 90% in energy costs.
- LED lights can do more than on and off. Features like dimming capabilities, changing light colour, remote control.
- LED is a more eco-friendly option.
Beyond Just On&Off
The only lights that even have the potential to satisfy this new type of demand, are LED lighting systems. As we know, innovation goes hand in hand with demand.
This is why hardware and software engineers are working on bettering the existing technology of LED lights and come up with new features and even a new breed of LED drivers.
Industrial LED lighting systems have already been proven just how much more efficient and better they are compared to traditional options.
Saving as much as 90% In costs, companies are able to save thousands of dollars each year by utilizing this technology. But the smart LED systems can do much more.
More than just bottom-line dollars and cents savings, intelligent or smart LED systems can have an immense impact on production efficiency, sustainability and contribute in a huge way to overall facility performances.
Human-Centric LED lights
Human-centric LED lighting means consumers or businesses using the technology to create the most effective and desirable environment for them.
How can this be done? Number one would probably be changing colour LEDs.
In many cases, LED is a better option because of its broader quality of light and smoother colour spectrum, which is more similar to the sun than other artificial lights.
Because LEDs can change colour and smart LEDs are able to automate this process, it’s possible to have more blue light during the day, and more warm light during the later hours, to simulate our natural light – the sun.
Researchers corollate being exposed to more natural-like colours to better mental states and better productivity.
The second big plus is dimmable and occupancy sensing capabilities. Not only can LEDs change colour, but they can also be dimmed which means it can play well alongside natural light.
Occupancy sensing helps in decreasing the amount of energy used in illuminating rooms that are empty. Typically done with motion or heat sensors.
This is not only convenient and money-saving but also great for the environment.
IoT – The Internet of Things
This refers to ever-expanding devices that support internet connectivity. This means that can be communicated via the internet.
What this does is simplify and automate the much-needed process of controlling tens maybe hundreds of lights at once.
The newest concept.
The basic concept here is to using lights rather than radio waves that can transfer data, up to 100 times faster! The Nobel Prize winner in 2014, Shuji Nakamura has named Li-Fi, “the next step in LED technology”
With all this, you should have a better idea as to how bright the future of LED is, globally and in Australia alike!
Solar street lights are the elevated light source that is powered by solar panels. The panel charges a rechargeable battery which in turn powers a fluorescent or LED lamp.
These solar panels are either mounted on the lighting structure or integrated into the poles themselves.
Solar street lights due to their sustainability and economic benefits very popular. They are commonly used to replace regular street light on roads, runways, stadiums, stations and more.
Components of Solar Street Light
This is the most important part of our solar street lights, they convert energy into electricity.
They exist in two types, monocrystalline, and polycrystalline.
Monocrystalline and polycrystalline
To make this less bulky, we have compiled some key points. This will make it easy for you to identify both from each other.
However, it is important to note that they both produce energy from the sun.
- Have higher efficiency than polycrystalline and a sleek appealing look.
- Regarded as a premium solar product.
- They are single-crystal silicon.
- The conversion rate is high.
- Have lower efficiency than monocrystalline and tend to have a blue hue, unlike monocrystalline.
- Has the advantage of being less expensive compared to monocrystalline
- They are referred to as multi/many crystal silicon.
- The conversion rate is lower than the monocrystalline.
LEDs are used in modern solar street light as the source of lighting. LED provides a higher luminosity and consumes low power.
The energy consumption of lightning fixture rate to that of HPS fixture is at least 50% lower.
The rechargeable battery is a part of the solar street light. It stores the energy converted to electricity from solar panel during the day and provide light at night.
The capacity of a battery is very important to determine the lifetime of the light.
There are two types of batteries for solar street lights namely.
Gel cell deep cycle batteries and lead-acid batteries.
If you have ever looked so closely, you would notice that each street light always individually has a pole with a street light attached to it. Ever wondered why?
It is because heavy components are required to create a street solar light and hence, a stable pole is needed to raise the lights.
Advantages of Solar Street Light
There are several advantages of solar light but its primary advantage is its ability to self-sustain, hence sometimes referred to as a self-sustaining unit.
A solar light doesn’t require any manual operation such as switching it on or off, it works automatically, turning off automatically by sensing outdoor light using solar panel voltage.
They are designed to work throughout the night. Also, the light doesn’t depend on the grid to power it hence, this indicates it is a self-powered unit.
It’s important to note that solar street lights are capable of illuminating throughout the night regardless of power cuts and bad weather conditions.
Another importance of solar street lights is that they are cost-effective.
They are not budget-friendly initially when setting up the light. But over time, they are cost-effective (we’d explain that as you read on.).
They are a great and effective option to invest in if you consider the capital, running, and maintenance costs.
One, solar lights are dependent on solar energy only and hence, there is no need to pay for electricity every month, as long as the sun remains up in the sky.
Unlike, regular street lights, solar street lights offer long-term benefits.
The lights are wireless and independent of any utility grid so you won’t be spending any costs for installing the lights.
Also, since it is automatic and not manual handling, you might save money regarding maintenance.
Environmental Friendly and Energy Saving
This is one of the advantages of solar street light, there’s no pollution and it saves energy.
One, solar doesn’t use fuel and makes use of solar energy only, in other words, there is no form of air pollution such as exhaust.
Solar energy is environmentally friendly and resource-efficient because solar energy is unlimited, imperishable, and renewable energy.
Non-renewable energy sources, on the other hand, such as gas, coal, oil, etc. can run out and perish.
Hence, more of the human population is now moving more closer to using solar light seeing as it is environmentally free and resource-efficient.
Easy Installation and Easier Setup
Solar street lights are not dependent on electricity. They are independent and are not connected to any electricity provider hence the cabling required to connect the solar panel to the LED is very minimal.
There are also no visible external wires used hence, they do not pose any threats of an electrical accident, strangulation, or overheating.
On the other hand, a regular street lighting project will take more time and human labour since it involves digging, cables, cable pipe laying etc.
It requires a lot of labour, equipment, and additional cost on other needed types of equipment, unlike the solar lighting system.
Solar light is an independent unit and as stated above, a saving option because it does not need digging or labour, etc.
It is stronger as a stand-alone
Regular street light electricity unlike solar lighting makes great use of intertwined dependent cables.
That simply means that if a problem arises in one part, it can easily affect many other connected parts and in turn, affect the whole system.
This, on the other hand, is not a problem for solar street lighting, considering that each unit is an independent power generating system.
No Extra Cost and Easy Theft of Materials
Laying cables and materials around can cost you greatly as cable theft is a common problem especially in remote areas.
These, however, can be avoided when using a solar lighting system since each unit is independent and free from any cable connection.
Hence, you wouldn’t need to spend on cables or even make use of them.
Easy Maintenance and Easier to Handle
Solar street lighting uses an automatic on and off feature. This feature is controlled by built-in intelligence and the installation process is simple and time-saving.
To install, the only thing they require is basic tools, minimal labour and maintenance, requires little tasks such as cleaning once in a while to maintain.
Otherwise, there is nothing much required to set it up and preserve its longevity.
You Can Easily Work With Your Budget
One of the best things about solar lighting is that you can cut your coat according to your size. There are several types of street solar lights available out there with different features, prices, sizes, capacities, etc.
Each is properly designed to suit one’s functional needs.
Every year, solar lightning technology grows as researchers and scientists keep working hard to provide the public with the best effective solar panels at lesser prices.
Disadvantages of Using Solar Street Lights
The biggest disadvantage of solar lights is weather conditions. Bad weather can sometimes cause solar lights not to give optimal backup.
Solar street lights are used for several purposes including airport lighting, highway and roadway lighting, park lighting, commercial and industrial projects, as well as outdoor security lighting.
Everything in this world has its advantage and disadvantages, including energy sources and the same goes for solar energy. Let’s dive right into it and look over some of the drawbacks of solar street lights.
Expensive than regular lights
Solar street lights are expensive than regular street lights. Now, this isn’t in light of the installation fee, maintenance fee, etc.
This is in terms of buying the solar street light itself. In comparison with regular street lights, they are more expensive to acquire hence, require a bigger initial investment.
Though for the first time it looks like you need to invest a bigger amount, in the long run, the overall cost is lower than that of the regular traditional lights considering the electricity consumption, maintenance cost and the life span.
High risk of theft
There’s a high risk of theft of solar street light compared to regular street light because it is costly and not wired.
Although as stated above, cable theft is not possible, however, another important part can be stolen such as the components of solar street light because they have a high monetary value.
Dysfunctionality when placed in extreme weather conditions
During extremely harsh weather conditions, the solar panels may not function very well and hence, lead to reduced energy production.
Because snow, dust, or moisture (depending on the weather) can get accumulated on horizontal solar panels affecting its performance from drawing energy from the sun and the performance of the panels.
It is advised to always install panels at an angle to avoid snow, water, or dust accumulation.
However, it is advised to regularly check the panels and other parts of the light to ensure nothing is going wrong and also extend its lifespan.
Replacement of batteries regularly
The modern lithium batteries used in solar street lights have a longer life span compared to other batteries but, that doesn’t mean they can’t get exhausted.
Rechargeable batteries can get exhausted after a long time and when such happens, they should be replaced.
The disadvantage of using solar street lights weigh pretty negligible compared to its advantages.
Solar power has unending benefits and it has already emerged as cost-effective and environmentally friendly lighting solutions.
Upgrading to LED lighting has many advantages in commercial and industrial buildings. Commercial LED lights are energy-efficient. They have a longer life span compared to conventional lighting fixtures.
Yearly, you can save a huge amount of money by simply using LED lightings. LED lights are the best alternative to high energy-consuming lighting fixtures like halogen lights. The ongoing maintenance cost with the lED lighting is almost negligible.
Australian Government has approved many commercials LED lighting solutions with a reduced cost to help commercial projects easily upgrade their lighting solutions.
Commercial LED lights are known for their numerous advantages to owners of commercial premises and are frequently used in retail shops, workplaces, and hospitals among others.
There are different kinds of high-quality indoor and outdoor energy-efficient LED lighting types available in the market. let’s check out some of the commonly used commercial lighting fixtures.

Do LED light really make a difference?
LED lights are a great alternative to traditional light systems.
They are far more energy-efficient than traditional light systems. There are a lot of magnificent benefits to LEDs from saving on money to aiding the environment.
LED or light-emitting diode is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are really a bunch of individual units.
LED bulbs are made utilizing as many as 180 bulbs for every cluster, and encased in diffuser focal points which spread the light in more extensive beams.
Large numbers of these produce white light but others create the light of different frequencies.
At the point when LEDs were introduced in 1962 there the first purpose was indicator lamps in many devices. Presently everything from industry to home appliances use LED.
LEDs have incredible benefits over traditional light. Let’s dive into the details:
- LED lights are energy efficient
- Safe to touch
- Design flexibility
- Negligible UV emission
- Low fire-risk
One of the primary disadvantages of traditional lighting is that a ton of the energy they consume is wasted.
Truth be told, just around 20% of a typical light bulb’s energy is converted over into valuable light, the rest is lost as wasted heat.
This is to a great extent because of their plan and the fibres they use. LED Lights don’t have a similar issue. They convert around 80% of the energy they use into helpful light.
This implies they utilize much less energy in accomplishing a similar brilliance. It just takes around 4 watts of energy for a LED Bulb to accomplish 60 Watts of brightness.
This is much more noteworthy than Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) or Halogen bulbs.
The average life expectancy of traditional lighting is around 1,000 hours. This is on the grounds that their fragile fibres heat up and burn out rapidly.
Accordingly, you can expect to be changing your bulbs a couple of times each year, an expense that mounts up over the long run. Since they don’t depend on the filament, LED Bulbs can last much longer.
They last anywhere somewhere in the range of 30,000 and 50,000 hours. Thus, you may be changing a LED Light once over a period of several years.
Safe to Touch
Many people had the less than wonderful experience of unscrewing a hot light. With LED’s, no compelling reason to stress over contacting the bulbs when lit.
LED lights work at extremely low temperatures, which makes them protected to contact consistently. While traditional lights are burning up, these lights stay cool to the touch.
This is probably the coolest component of LED. LEDs have the capacity of changing colours, shapes, and being formed into almost any design, including furniture, desk’s, and even showerheads.
While traditional lights are restricted to one colour and only lamps, LEDs are fit for evolving colours, have diminished lights, and even be controlled from a controller, giving you full power over how you show your LED Lights.
Probably the greatest downside about these Bulbs is cost. The underlying asking cost for a LED Bulb is fundamentally higher than traditional light.
Nonetheless, try not to be put off by this. These are intended to pay for themselves over time, so as opposed to shying away from the quick value, you ought to ascertain the cost throughout a long period of time.
The actual cost of traditional lights is much more than its underlying cost. With the additional time, you will end up paying significantly more in labour expenses, substitution costs, and electricity bills.
Because of their low energy use and longer life expectancy, these Lights start paying for themselves rapidly by bringing down your power bills and maintenance costs.
LED Lights are actually a lot more durable than traditional lights. Traditional lights are very delicate, especially their fragile fibres.
LED Light Bulbs can withstand a ton of discipline before they break, making them even more versatile.
The energy proficiency and cost adequacy of LED Light Bulbs is truly driving interest and demand. And soon you can anticipate that they should be utilized in seven more commercial and domestic light setups.
It really is an ideal opportunity to bid goodbye to traditional lights and ephemeral Compact Fluorescent.

These lights are completely environment friendly, for they don’t contain any harmful material or compound. Different bulbs generally convey things like mercury, which is perilous for the climate.
Negligible UV emission
LEDs produce a trifling measure of UV rays. Likewise, the immaterial measure of infrared light is transmitted by them. In this way, these are invaluable with regards to lighting art galleries or other such places.
Indeed, reduced degrees of heat has an amazing effect here. If the heat is decreased, the dangers of overheating will likewise be reduced.
Along these lines, the bulbs can be kept near flammable things with no dangers or risks.
No danger of burning
On account of their high proficiency, LED lights generate significantly less waste heat than traditional lights.
These turn out to be so hot during operation that they should not be touched. LED lights are generally hand-warmed, so there is no danger or risk of burns.
This makes it simple, for instance, to adjust a LED floor light while it is turned on.
Be that as it may, be cautious, there are a few exceptions: There are some small but powerful LED lights. Because of their design, there is just an insignificant cooling surface, where the heat loss can be dissipated.
Subsequently, these lights can turn out to be hot in spite of LED technology and ought not to be touched during operation.
LED benefits expand to areas other than home lighting also. Considering LED lights during the Christmas occasion is additionally a smart energy conservation idea.
Driven lights are cool and energy effective during the season when energy use rises fundamentally. LED lights and electric lamps are extraordinary for outdoors, fishing, sailing, and hunting.
Driven lighting is one of the best long-term solution for your home, outdoor, and business lighting needs.
Now you know the benefits of LED light over incandescent lighting, you may want to upgrade your traditional lights to LED fittings.

You need your warehouse staff to be able to easily see what they’re doing on every turn. At the same time, you need to save on costs. And unfortunately, your existing lighting simply isn’t ticking both of those boxes.
The solution? High bay LED lights.
What are high bay LED lights? These are light fixtures designed to be used in large, open areas with high ceilings. For instance, you can find them not only in warehouses but also in gymnasiums and factories.
Many current high bay lights use high-intensity discharge, or HID, lamps (for example, high-pressure sodium or metal halide lamps). However, HID lamps use costly antiquated technology. Fortunately, high bay lights offer several benefits over these lamps.
Here’s a rundown on why you should upgrade to high bay lights.
Let’s jump in!
One of the top benefits of LED high bay lights is their high efficiency. This is critical considering that the lights you choose will likely be operating for 50 hours or more per week.
These lights consume less energy than their HID counterparts do while still producing the same output as HID lights. For instance, the wattage of HID fixtures could are usually around 400 watts. Meanwhile, LED high bay lights could be between 70 watts and 200 watts.
As a result, you could easily save 75% of your consumption of energy with high bay lights versus HID lights. Put another way, you could save hundreds of dollars per each fixture in your facility by switching to high bay lights.
Yet another reason to switch to LED high bay lights is their unparalleled performance when compared with HID fixtures.
High bay LED lights are designed to distribute light evenly on surfaces. As a result, your light level on a surface won’t vary much between the areas where your fixtures are mounted.
On the other hand, HID lights produce bright spots directly beneath the fixtures. Thus, the light level decreases dramatically between fixtures.
LED high bay lights also offer the benefit of being low maintenance and reliable.
Why? Because LED lights’ output degrades quite slowly with time. Thus, an LED light’s functional life tends to be much longer when compared with an HID lamp.
This, in turn, reduces the maintenance costs associated with your light fixtures long term. Therefore, high bay lights are a wise lighting option if you are looking to decrease your operational costs.
In fact, LED-related government incentives are also available for some business owners who are looking to run more sustainable businesses.
How We Can Help with Our High Bay Lights
We offer top-of-the-line high bay lights for commercial use at heavily reduced prices due to government rebates and incentives.
Our lights stand out for their ability to reduce your energy consumption. They also feature a slim, clean, and bright design for a top-notch look even in the harshest of environments.
