MaxLite Adds BayMAX LED High Bay Pendants to DLC-Qualified Products List


West Caldwell, New Jersey – MaxLite® announces the addition of its BayMAX™ LED High Bay Pendants to the DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL), making the fixtures available for national utility rebates. Offered in 130-, 160- and 200-watt models, the LED high bay pendants are designed to replace up to 400-watt metal halide high bay fixtures while improving lighting quality and reducing energy and maintenance costs. The fixtures deliver uniform wide general light distribution in a variety of commercial and industrial applications, including factories, warehouses, shopping malls and large retail spaces, gymnasiums and sports arenas, workshops, dockyards, toll booths, houses of worship, and other facilities that require high mounting heights of 15 to 40 feet.
“Our BayMAX LED High Bay Pendants are positioned to exceed the stringent requirements developed by the DLC, and meet the difficult challenges of high ceiling environments,” said Vice President of Product Marketing and Engineering Pat Treadway. “These performance-driven fixtures deliver superior high bay lighting alternatives over traditional HID fixtures with advanced finishes and optics, and will help facility executives make intelligent budgetary and energy-saving upgrades to LED technology.”

With an enclosed power supply housing and covered optics, the LED fixtures are designed with die cast aluminum bodies that ensure durability, improve business efficiency and illuminate challenging locations without maintenance disruptions. These units feature advanced dacrotized coatings for corrosion resistance, an advanced discreet optic reflector package for uniform horizontal distribution that deploys up to a 16,000 lumen output, superior vertical distribution with reduced glare, and patented thermal heat dissipation technology and efficient cooling for extended component life.
Dimming drivers enable adjustable light levels using third party occupancy sensors and control systems that maximize energy savings. IP65-rated for wet locations, these fixtures are engineered with high-efficacy LED boards featuring LM-80 tested LEDs protected by a tempered glass diffuser for efficient performance. The fixtures also feature dual down-rod mounting for increased stability.
MaxLite’s LED high bay pendants are offered as universal voltage (120- to 277-VAC) and available in gray and white finishes.
