Permlight Launches Enbryten Intensity Line to Replace Metal Halide for Parking Lots and Wall Washing
TUSTIN, Calif., Sept. 6 -- Permlight Products announced today that it has launched the Enbryten Intensity line of LED flood lights for lighting billboards, parking areas, and facades of architectural structures. The ENBZ Intensity Series is designed to replace comparable metal halide fixtures with half the power, a major decrease in heat and weight, and substantially longer lifetime and less lumen depreciation -- in short, dramatic energy savings for outdoor applications.
The ENBZ Series is compact, measuring 14" square and less than 4" deep and weighing less than 10 pounds. The first product introduced will be a 90 Watt fixture comparable to a 150 Watt metal halide fixture in light output. The ENBZ utilizes electronic ballasts and features modular LED light engines that are independently replaceable and serviceable, greatly extending the lifetime of the fixture, and providing ease in maintenance.
"Where else can you get a flood light fixture where 20% of the light source can fail and it will still provide sufficient lighting?" asked Manuel Lynch, President and CEO of Permlight. "The modular nature and reduced operating temperature of the ENBZ Intensity series ensures worry-free operation with reduced maintenance at half the power consumption."
The ENBZ is simple to install, as it mounts to any pole or building using conventional adapters or mounting arms. The 10 pound weight easily meets the industry requirement of 50 pounds maximum for hanging from a standard wall mounted or overhead junction box.
The ENBZ Intensity design and components also offer increased benefit. ENBZ intensity features black powder coated housing with weatherproof and hinged lid for ease of repair. Lower operating temperatures of LED allow the ENBZ to use an acrylic lens that is safer and more vandal resistant than the glass used in metal halide fixtures. The ENBZ is available in dimmable 120VAC or non-dimmable 277VAC input line voltage versions and is offered in Cool White or Warm White.
A unique feature of the ENBZ is instant on/off actuation which means it can be paired with a motion detector, which is not possible for metal halide fixtures due to their slow warm-up period. Furthermore, the 120VAC ENBZ version can be line voltage dimmed for further savings in energy consumption. Permlight is introducing a controller in late September which will reduce the power to 20 Watts when no is present and increase to full intensity gradually as it detects motion.
The LEDs feature lumen per watt (LPW) efficacy greater than 60 lumens per watt. As with all Permlight Enbryten series, the product has a three-year warranty with an expected lifetime of 30,000-50,000 hours.
"We envision dramatic power savings for car dealerships, parking areas and billboard operators by reducing energy consumption by 50% over metal halide," continued Lynch. "We also expect significant reduction in maintenance costs by extending the useable lifetime of the light to 10-12 years compared to metal halide's 3-4 years."
