Cooper Lighting Outdoor LED Luminaires from Cooper Lighting

The McGraw-Edison Ventus outdoor LED area luminaire offers unmatched optical performance and versatility with superior light quality. Incorporating Cooper Lighting’s patent pending modular LightBAR™ technology and patented AccuLED Optics™ system, the LED luminaires’ unique application-specific design allows lumen and energy output to be customized to fulfill the exact needs of the outdoor space—eliminating wasted energy, obtrusive spill light and over-lighting of spaces. In both performance and construction, the Ventus LED Area Luminaire is optimized to deliver uniform and energy-conscious illumination to parking lots, building areas, roadways, and security lighting application, and can provide up to 75% in energy savings over traditional High Intensity Discharge (H.I.D.) outdoor sources.

 Cooper Lighting’s patented AccuLED Optics™ system provides shaped distributions and scalability to meet exact application requirements. The Ventus luminaire is offered in two to twelve IP66 rated LightBAR™ system configurations with a choice of 15 unique optical distributions including a family of proprietary Spill Light Eliminator optics. The Spill Light Eliminator optics drastically reduce spill light from behind the luminaire and redirect light to the task surface resulting in increased task efficacy. With efficiencies as high as 95%, AccuLED Optics™ technology is up to 30% more efficient than traditional H.I.D. optical systems. Producing even, uniform illumination, the Ventus luminaire provides a benchmark warm white light of 4000K correlated color temperature (CCT) with no sacrifice in lumen output or lighting performance. With typical LED outdoor area products standardized on a cold blue color temperature (6000-6500K CCT), the Ventus luminaire provides specifiers and end-users a preferred color choice similar to a ceramic metal halide lamp.

Featuring rugged, die-cast and extruded aluminum construction, the Ventus luminaire’s unique design allows for passive cooling and natural cleaning of the extruded heat sink ensuring reliable operation in  -30°C to 40°C ambient environments. The luminaire is Dark Sky Compliant solving the public concern of both light trespass and sky glow/light pollution.

 The McGraw-Edison Ventus LED Area Luminaire is backed by a five-year warranty.


Cooper Lighting’s LightBAR™ technology provides energy savings between 30-75% over standard H.I.D. systems while providing 50,000+ hour rated life, which is six times longer than traditional metal halide sources found in most outdoor commercial applications. Bi-level switching options allow further energy savings while still maintaining lighting uniformity levels.
