New Line of American-Made LED Retrofits for Acorn and Decorative Light Fixtures Released by ActiveLEDŽ

50-80% energy savings, 10-year warranty among benefits of new luminaries from RingdaleŽ, Inc.

GEORGETOWN, Texas -- RingdaleŽ, Inc., Texas-based manufacturer of ActiveLEDŽ luminaries, announces a line of self-contained retrofit LED light assemblies (light engines) for replacing high wattage bulbs and ballasts for acorn style and decorative light assemblies. The long lasting ActiveLED Retrofits are an innovative LED Light Engine designed to easily replace the inefficient, high-wattage light bulb and ballast assembly in most fixtures, providing energy savings of 50-80 percent—a 32-watt ActiveLED Acorn Retrofit replaces a 150-watt metal halide bulb and offers a warranted lifespan of 10-years with a 'no light loss' guaranty.

Existing Acorn and decorative luminaries can be retrofitted with the low-wattage ActiveLED light and still have the same "old town" or aesthetic characteristics. The only noticeable difference in its outward appearance is a better quality of light, which helps to improve safety. This is ideal for municipalities, universities and colleges wishing to retain vintage style lamplights for roadways, sidewalks and public spaces in historical and residential neighborhoods.

The ActiveLED Retrofit line currently features seven different fixture families, each available in countless configurations. The fixtures align with the market's most commonly replaced luminaries: the Philips Gardco round parking lot, classic "Town and Country", most Acorn styles including Lumec, Pace Canlet Vapor Proof, Candela, and Classic Wellesley for King Luminaries. Ringdale also offers custom engineering to design retrofits for special projects such as antique or decorative fixtures. To achieve the desired ambience, customers can specify light direction and color temperatures ranging from 2700K-5000K.

Ringdale's patented LED technology also ensures a long life span of min. 90,000 hours (24/7 is 8,760 hours per year), improving the bottom line when it comes to maintenance and operational costs. The significantly reduced maintenance is the most compelling argument for the retrofit apart from the significant direct cost savings due to the much lower energy use. "Many have tried cheap LED replacement bulbs which do not work for long," remarked Klaus Bollmann, president of Ringdale. "In fact, they have a shorter lifespan than the old HID and HPS lamps. ActiveLED is a game changer as it provides the light output and guarantees its devices and 'no light loss' for 10 years."

For applications where lower light levels would be appropriate during periods of inactivity, ActiveLED retrofits can be configured with a digital dimmer and motion sensor and can be fully dark sky compliant. The ActiveLED Power Source is cUL listed, CE, and RoHS compliant.

ActiveLED is available directly from Ringdale or network of local resellers. For more information, visit the company online at or contact Ringdale in the United States at +1-512-288-9080 or in the United Kingdom at +44-1444-871-349.
