FARMINGDALE, N.J., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced the launch of its new 17,000-lumen, 170W DuroSite® LED High Bay luminaire, designed to deliver superior lighting quality and clarity in a wide range of industrial lighting applications. The product is currently UL1598/A and CSA 22.2 certified and set to undergo CE compliance testing to broaden availability in the coming months.
The new 100 lumen per Watt fixture is the latest addition to Dialight's expanding High Bay product line that now offers lumen outputs ranging from 8,000 to 17,000, including several models certified for hazardous location use. LED low bay models are also available at 6,000 lumens for lower ceiling height applications, such as parking garages and cold storage facilities.
Instant-on capability allows the units to be paired with an occupancy sensor and/or dimmable components for enhanced energy efficiency. The units operate on an integrated universal power supply at 100-277VAC, and are well-suited for easy changeout from conventional HID light sources, such as metal halide and high pressure sodium. Each unit is backed by Dialight's 5-year full-performance warranty for exceptional long-life durability which encompasses the entire luminaire from fixture housing, lens and finish to LED light engines and integrated power supply.
"This new high-output High Bay is truly groundbreaking technology, combining the maximum light output available in an LED fixture with the superb energy efficiency our customers have come to expect from the Dialight brand," said Roy Burton, Dialight's Group Chief Executive. "For companies considering a move to LEDs, there's never been a better time to make the switch to save energy, and reduce electricity and maintenance costs, as well as take advantage of some valuable rebates that can further drive down total cost of ownership."In addition to being UL1598/A and CSA listed, the 17,000 lumen product is also IP66 certified for use in outdoor and wash down locations, in addition to indoor use for warehouses, manufacturing facilities and cold storage applications. At just one-fourth the overall fixture height of conventional HID fixtures, the low-profile high bay reduces dust and dirt accumulation, as well as interference with air circulation or other structures.
