LED Luminaire achieves greater than 50 L/W.
Press Release Summary:
August 12, 2010 - Employing MicroEmitter(TM) optics, PGL7 LED Luminaire offers wide and narrow distribution patterns for covered canopies and walkways, loading docks, and public transportation platforms. Dual Thermal Management System uses conduction and convection to absorb and dissipate heat, while LifeShield Protection System maintains lumen loss depreciation to less than 15% at 100,000 hr of operation. Available in 3,500, 5,100, and 1,700 K color temperatures, PGL7 is IP66-rated for wet locations.
Original Press Release
Kim Lighting's PGL7 LED Improves Its Performance Package, Design Attributes, and Controls Lumen Depreciation to a Minimum
Press release date: August 5, 2010
o Designed to employ Kim Lighting's patent pending MicroEmitter(TM) Technology.
- Optimal glare control for safety and visual comfort.
- MicroEmitter modules are precisely aimed to hit the lighting task, reducing spill light and energy waste.
- LED modules are easily upgradeable as LED technology advances.
o NEW! Designed with a Dual Thermal Management System, conduction and convection, to absorb and dissipate heat, and introduces an exclusive LifeShield Protection System monitor to maintain lumen loss depreciation to less than 15% at 100,000 hours of operation (based on IESNA LM-79 and LM-80) in extreme and fluctuating environmental conditions without overheating or failing.
o Wide and narrow optical distributions available in IES Type I, III, V as well as exclusive one-way left and one-way right. Optical variety and flexibility expands application usage.
o Achieves footcandle levels above IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) recommendations.
o Progressive occupancy sensor and illumination control options (wired and wireless systems) for additional energy savings.
o Available in three standard color temperatures, 3500K, 5100K and 1700K (Amber - 580nm). Other color temperatures are available special order.
o Standard vandal-resistant acrylic lens; lexan lens optional.
o IP-66 rated for wet location and hose-down applications.
o Meets ARRA and NAFTA criteria. Key LED Energy Savings and Performance Facts:
o Over 40% energy savings compared to HID sources. Bi-level illumination can add additional savings.
o 40,000 hour longer lamp life over HID sources.
o Slower performance depreciation at high operating cycles.
o Uniform illumination for security camera installs; no dark shadows between vehicles or other freestanding objects within a structure.
o LEDs are instant on/off strike light sources; increases safety and security during momentarily power failures.
o LEDs reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
o Higher performance levels in all weather climates.
o Payback varies between 2 - 4 years depending on application and installation environment.
