Lighting Science Group introduces new LED high-bay fixtures
Date Announced: 11 Nov 2011
Satellite Beach, Florida – Pushing the boundaries of high-performance LED lighting design, Lighting Science Group (OTCBB: LSCG) today introduced its BayLightTM LED high bay fixture. Deliberately designed to meet the critical requirements demanded by conventional 400W HID fixture, the new BayLight sets a new standard in its class. Lighting Science Group’s instant restrike LED high bay fixture uses 35% less electricity, has a longer operating life and requires less maintenance than conventional HID high bay fixtures.
The BayLight is perfectly suited for use in applications such as warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities and cold storage facilities. The optional integrated occupancy sensor further enhances the energy savings delivered by the BayLight. Unlike linear fluorescent lamps that tend to lose light output at lower operating temperatures, the BayLight’s performance is enhanced at lower operating temperatures. At these lower ambient temperature ranges, the LED light output of the Baylight can increase by up to 6% while dramatically extending its’ rated life.
Careful thermal management of the overall system and drivers gives the BayLight a L70 rated life of over 60,000 hours at 40°C and over 100,000 hours at 25°C. With an IP66 Rating for the LED panel, the BayLight is certified for damp location. Furthermore, unlike traditional HID or fluorescent light sources, the BayLight contains no mercury or lead.
“The design and development that went into the new BayLight is reflective of the commitment and dedication that goes into every new product developed here at Lighting Science Group. The product provides more efficient light output than typical competitors’ products and truly demonstrates how Lighting Science Group is maximizing the potential of LED lighting applications,” said Jim Haworth, chairman and chief executive officer of Lighting Science Group.
