Industrial lighting leader Larson Electronics has released a new LED roadway light designed to provide performance and efficiency surpassing that of typical high pressure sodium roadway lighting. The RWL-LED-60 200 Watt Street Light features robust construction and advanced solid state LED technology resulting in a fixture producing higher quality light output and better efficiency than common HID fixtures. The RWL-LED-60 200 watt street light from Larson Electronics is an ideal alternative to high pressure sodium street lights that offers better light quality and reliability combined with the cost effectiveness of more efficient operation. Although typical HPS street light produce a very high lumen to watt ratio, the light they produce is poorly distributed and of very poor quality, resulting in a great deal of inefficiency. This new LED street light features an advanced solid state design that uses the high output and focused light distribution of LEDs to get more and higher quality light onto the targeted area, resulting in more efficient operation. Unlike HPS systems which produce reddish orange light output and lose much of their output to spillage and diffusion, this LED street light produces sharp white light output that is focused and controlled, allowing this 200 watt light to cover areas similar in size to 400 watt HPS fixtures just as effectively. This LED light features a rugged die cast aluminum housing with built in heat dissipating fins, built in wildlife shield, and tough polyester powder coating, and integral bubble level. The LED assembly is protected by a tough shatterproof lens and has an operational life rating of 100,000 hours, three times that of standard HPS lamps. This fixture is designed as a replacement for cobra style heads and the mounting assembly is adjustable and can accept a mast arm measuring from 1-1/4 to 2 inches in diameter. This LED roadway light is an efficient and cost effective alternative to high pressure sodium fixtures that will provide beneficial returns in the form of reduced operation costs, higher durability and longevity, improved light quality, and overall savings in energy costs over the life of the unit. “This 200 Watt LED cobra head street light provides longer lamp life and higher durability when compared to traditional 400 watt high pressure sodium lamps,” said Robert Bresnahan with Larson Electronics Larsonelectronics.com. Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED lights, LED work lights, LED light bars, intrinsically safe LED lights, outdoor LED lights, and explosion proof LED lights.
