US lighting manufacturers AHPharma, and i-lighting have teamed 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.
Reduces energy costs by 50%
"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," said Dr. James L. McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma.
"As a result, the system not only reduces energy costs by 50% when compared to competitive LED lighting systems, but also provides an ultra-reliable LED light source helping to foster normal growth and hormonal development."
Meeting the needs of commercial live production
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% 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.
