MaxLite's DesignLights Consortium Qualified BayMAX LED Linear High Bay Fixtures Offer Energy Savings
West Caldwell, New Jersey – MaxLite®, a leading marketer and manufacturer of energy-efficient lamps and lighting fixtures, debuts its DesignLights Consortium® (DLC)-qualified BayMAX™ LED Linear High Bay Fixtures with A-B bi-level capabilities that offer LM-80-tested LED strips in a low profile rectangular high bay housing; dimming models are also available. The BayMAX fixtures replace T8 and T5 fluorescent and HID high bay fixtures in industrial applications with 15- to 40-foot ceilings, including big box retailers, factories, gymnasiums, manufacturing facilities, workshops and warehouses. The BayMAX LED fixtures are assembled in MaxLite’s New Jersey facility, and are added to the company’s lineup of United States-assembled and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)-compliant lighting fixtures.
“Our new BayMAX LED Linear High Bay Fixtures are designed with either dimming or A-B bi-level capabilities to easily obtain additional energy savings by using dimming, a motion sensor or simple circuit wiring techniques,” said MaxLite’s Vice President of Product Marketing and Engineering Pat Treadway. “The new fixtures perform extremely well with an ROI of less than three years in industrial environments where maintenance plays a costly and time-consuming role.”
MaxLite’s new 110-watt performance- and value-optimized LED Linear High Bay with more than 11,000 lumens replaces up to a 250-watt metal halide high bay fixture, while the 160-watt LED model is equivalent up to a 400-watt fixture with more than 16,000 deliverable lumens. The 250-watt model replaces up to a 450-watt pulse start metal halide high bay fixture with deliverable lumens up to 24,000.
High efficacy LED boards with dual copper cladding are engineered with cool-operating thermal and lumen balanced light engines that outperform harder-driven, hotter LEDs, resulting in greater energy savings and lumen output, longer life and better quality of life.
Solidly constructed of 22-gauge, cold-roll steel housing, the BayMAX LED Linear High Bay Fixtures operate on universal 120- to 277-volt electrical systems. A specular reflector controls the light distribution and maximizes light output. A topside access door enables easy driver maintenance and serviceability.
Variations include dimming and bi-level controls, while options include occupancy sensor, wire guards and lensed doors. Accessories include 10-foot SO cords and plugs for 120- or 277-volt systems and cable hanging kits.
