TORRANCE, CA — February 6, 2004 — Doing its bit to aid the worldwide Dark Skies initiative, LEDtronics introduces
direct incandescent replacement M400 CobraHead-Styled LED Streetlights.
These new streetlights eliminate the unwanted glare, light trespass, energy
waste and sky glow that accompany traditional incandescent streetlamps.
An estimated 30% of outdoor light generated in the U.S. goes into space,
flooding the skies and creating electric haze that reduces stargazing.
LED Streetlights shine light in the direction where it is needed – at
ground level – reducing the amount of light that is lost to the
sky and improving overall nighttime viewing. The LED Streetlights meet
IES street lighting standards. (Test results may be downloaded from the
LEDtronics website: www.LEDtronics.com)
The LED cluster lamp contains 400 Warm Incandescent-White (3200K) LEDs
arranged in a light optimizing design. Architects, urban planners and
lighting professionals will find that the 3200K White LEDs emit a pleasing
warm incandescent-white light and have a diode life of over 100,000 hours
that makes them excellent replacements for standard incandescent lighting
along minor roads, pedestrian walkways, in parking lots and for maintenance-intensive
and ornamental lighting applications. This LED Streetlight lamp with its
19-Watt power draw and high-intensity light output make it ideal for use
with alternative energy systems like solar and wind power. Using LED lamps
with renewable energy sources helps to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels.
When purchased independently of the housing, the lamp is available in
both Type 1 and Type 2 styles. Type 1 lamps have to be hardwired into
the cobra head fixtures. The Type 2 lamps feature male 39mm mogul bases
that screw into the socket of the fixture. The LED Streetlamp may be purchased
as a retrofit lamp for existing installations’ old style cobra head
fixtures or as an integrated part of a complete assembly that includes
the housing and lens. LEDtronics offers a die-cast aluminum MSCL M400
Luminaire CobraHead-Styled fixture with an electrocoat gray finish, universal
two-bolt slipfit joint, adjustable mogul E39 standard base socket (house
side), and a flat glass lens. Standard voltage for the LED Streetlight
is 120VAC; other voltages available are 12V, 24V, 28V and 240V. Optional
LED colors are red, green, orange, yellow, cool white and blue.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology with its inherent energy efficiency
makes an excellent accompaniment to photovoltaic-based energy systems.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical
shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With
an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably
year after year and are virtually maintenance free.
