Larson Electronics Releases a New 160 Watt General Area Use High Bay LED Light Fixture
Press release date: August 18, 2014
Longtime leader in commercial and industrial grade lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 160 watt low profile LED light fixture that is a direct replacement for four foot, four lamp fluorescent light fixtures. The energy efficiency and longevity of LEDs make this light ideal for use in places requiring high bay illumination such as warehouses, malls, parking garages, and other similar environments.
The GAU-48-160W-LED from Larson Electronics is a general use high bay LED linear integrated light fixture that provides 17,215 lumens of illumination in a 160° wide flood beam spread. This low profile, highly efficient LED light fixture is a direct replacement for existing four lamp T5HO fixtures, providing twice the lamp life, increased durability, and less energy consumption. This fixture is housed in aluminum casing and the LED assembly is protected by a shatter resistant polycarbonate lens. This unit is multi voltage, operating on 110-277 volts AC and is supplied with a 10’ line-in cable with flying leads. We also offer a low voltage 12-24 volts DC model for low voltage applications, such as off the grid and remote locations powered by alternative energy.
There is no ballast in this unit which reduces the overall weight and creates a slimmer profile for this unit. The integrated LED assembly has a 50,000+ hour service life, which results in extreme efficiency and greatly reduced maintenance costs. The solid state design of LED technology give this fixture superior resistance to damage from vibration, extremes in temperature, and a lamp life over twice that of standard fluorescent bulbs. The integrated heat sink allows for efficient heat dissipation, preventing the LEDs from overheating and keeping the overall temperature of the fixture relatively low. This low profile light fixture features two adjustable brackets, providing operators with easy installation and allowing for adjustments of the light assembly. This unit is designed to be either surface mounted or hung from cable or chain and includes built in mounts. This light comes with a multi-purpose mounting bracket that can be used for a direct surface or reversed and used for chain hanging the unit.
“This new LED fixture is a direct replacement for four foot, four lamp fluorescent fixtures,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “It provides twice the lamp life, better durability, and uses less energy to operate than a standard fluorescent bulb light fixture.”
