PEACHTREE CITY, Ga., May 15, 2009 – Cooper Lighting, a division of Cooper Industries, Ltd. (NYSE: CBE), has introduced the io radii 38, an LED trackhead luminaire offered in two light output options equivalent to 90W PAR38 and 35W PAR30 ceramic metal halide lamps. Available as a Trackhead, Adjustable Monopoint or Surface-Mounted Downlight, the radii 38 is offered in three color temperatures (2700 K, 3000 K & 5000 K) and features field interchangeable optics (10°, 25° and 50° beam spreads) and shielding media (cross blade baffle & snoot) providing unmatched beam control and flexibility without changing the lamp. Consuming 20W (standard output) or 50W (high output) and designed to last 50,000 hours, radii offers up to 70% energy savings when compared to 90W PAR halogen lamps. The fixture was named the Best of Category winner in the 2009 Lightfair
International Innovation Awards (LIA) in the Track, Low-Voltage, Cable & Rail Systems category this month. The LIA honors the lighting industry’s most innovation products and technologies.
Providing excellent color rendering (85 CRI), the io radii 38 is 38/8" in diameter (4-3/4") and features up to 83° tilt when installed as an Adjustable Monopoint. Field interchangeable optical lenses and shielding media are held captive in a screw base bezel. The cast aluminum components are available in White, Black, and Silver.
The radii trackhead installs on Cooper Lighting’s award-winning Halo Architectural Flexible Track System with a unique track adapter clamshell design featuring a spring-load collar, so that no parts have to be removed from the trackhead in order to be installed onto the track.
