The T8 lowbays, reminds me the Gaash T5 lowbays.
Induction highbays here, have different design than HID highbays.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

That looks like one of their two story stores. Those induction lamps are 200w "Everbrite" brand, I used to service Menards lights and these induction lamps would start out really good intensity, after 6 years though they'd need to be relamped as the phosphor would become basically a diffuse coating and stop converting the UV to visible light. So the lamps would end up being dim and greened out with big black scorch marks in the phosphor around the induction coils. It was really weird, even though the tube was super dim, it was also screaming hot, hotter than any high wattage CFL ive ever touched.

Yeah induction is a lost cause lol. They're pretty cool and the light from them is nice, but they generate some crazy heat and dim really badly like HO linear fluorescent tubes. And I've heard they're no more efficient than electrode-equipped fluorescent. I have an 85W "A shape" Philips induction lamp and driver. No fixture for it though.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

The best induction lamps today are still only producing about 70 lm/w

They are not aiming to be the most efficient, allthough ironically they now are used to replace HID for "energy saving" (thats the power of marketing...)

Their benefit is good, nice and healthy (maybe except EM field concerns, but that is another story) white light with absolute zero maintenance for X period, and that they achieve very well
