8W Fixture Now Up to 90% More Efficient Than Incandescent or CFL Jelly Jar Light; AC and DC Versions Ideal for Solar, Low-Power Applications in Oil & Gas or Chemical Classified Environments
Farmingdale, NJ - Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today introduced its new ultra-energy efficient 100 lumens per watt SafeSite® RTO LED Area Light. Consuming just 8 Watts, the new RTO Area Light is the most energy efficient product of its kind and the only one certified for use in Class I Div 2 environments, as well as Class II Div1 and Class II Div 2 (Groups D, E, F) applications.
With its 12-48V DC input capability, the RTO Area Light is ideal for solar and other low-power needs, including battery-backup operation, unmanned off-shore oil platforms and other hazardous location applications. The RTO Area Light models are also available for 100-277V AC use. The fixture is also UL 844/1598, UL50/E and IP66 certified for wet-locations.
Designed as a complete fixture retrofit for up to 75W conventional incandescent or compact fluorescent jellyjar fixtures, both the area lights are L70 rated for >100,000 hours at 25°C and backed by Dialight's 5-year full-performance warranty to virtually eliminate lighting maintenance for continuous, reliable use. The fixture's instant-on capability allows the lights to be switched off when not needed, eliminating the energy wasted from keeping conventional lights burning 24/7 to avoid the restrike delay.
"Dialight's expanding portfolio of hazardous location products has earned us an international reputation for cutting-edge product design that meets our customers' ever-changing needs," said Roy Burton, Dialight's Group Chief Executive. "The RTO Area Light fixture offers the outstanding long-life reliability and performance our customers have come to expect, with a low-wattage unit that cuts both energy and maintenance costs."
Factory sealed inside a ruggedized housing for superior durability and weather resistance, the Downlight is suitable for both interior and exterior use, even in the most extreme environments with a broad operating temperature range of -40°F to +133°F.
The SafeSite Area Light is compatible with a wide range of mounting options, including pendant mount with or without junction box and ceiling mount with or without junction box. Flush-mount and junction box wall mounting accessory kits are also available.
