MaxLite® recently introduced its new LED Area Lights for the commercial and industrial market, in 70-, 100- and 140-watt models. MaxLite designed the new LED Area Lights, which are replacements for up to 400-watt metal halide and high pressure sodium outdoor lighting fixtures and are part of the MaxLED® family of flood lights, offered in the same wattages.
The LED Area Lights have been approved by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), a collaboration of utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations focused on raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings.
These new products can be used for area or pedestrian lighting applications. All three wattages incorporate the company’s patent pending optic/thermal transfer technology. The combination light collimator and thermal transfer technique creates highly controlled beam types, while increasing life and performance through effective thermal transfer away from the LEDs.
The LED Area Lights operate with a universal driver on electrical systems ranging from 120 to 277 volts, and have a life of 50,000 hours (at L70 standards). All fixtures are available in 5000K (daylight) correlated color temperature (CCT) and offer a full cutoff classification in a Type V distribution.
- The 70-watt model is designed as a replacement for 250-watt metal halide fixtures, and it provides a 67 color rendering index (CRI), delivers 4141 lumens, and offers an efficacy of 68 lumens per watt.
- The 100-watt model can replace a 320-watt metal halide fixture. The fixture offers a 68 CRI, delivers 6963 lumens, and an efficacy of 68 lumens per watt.
- The 140-watt model is designed to replace 400-watt metal halide fixtures, offers a CRI of 73, delivers 8400 lumens, and provides an efficacy of 60.
The LED Area Lights have a standard 6″ fixture arm or an optional 12″ arm. The fixture’s black ceramic frit mask on tempered glass reduces glare. The LED module is copper plated to provide a high thermal transfer rate, minimizing the LEDs’ junction temperature to maximize service life. The fixture is constructed with LM-80 rated LEDs that are proprietary binned for uniform color consistency and quality.
Finished in dark bronze, the heavy-duty cast aluminum one piece housing is polyester powder coated to ensure protection from rust and corrosion, and sealed with a hinged door and a tempered glass lens to keep out dirt, water, and insects. The fixtures are also available in a white finish.
Compatible with mechanical relay type photocells and occupancy sensors, the LED Area Lights operate in any outdoor environment at temperatures ranging from -30°F to 130°F. The fixtures are 16.5″ long, 16.5″ wide and 7.5″ tall.
The LED Area Lights are IES B4/U0/G0 (BUG) rated, ETL-, cETL- and FCC-certified, RoHS compliant and constructed without hazardous materials. LM-79 and LM-80 data is available, along with IES files and photometrics. The fixtures are backed by MaxLite’s five-year limited warranty.
