Danvers, MA (February 17, 2008) – OSRAM SYLVANIA, North American lighting leader, is known for delivering quality, performance products to form sustainable application solutions. Utilizing the latest LED technologies, OSRAM SYLVANIA has developed their own solid state lighting capabilities, including LED light sources, complete LED systems, LED luminaires and OLEDs. Among the company’s newest LED innovations is the second generation Post Top Street Light LED Retrofit Kit, an advanced outdoor and street lighting solution.
The second generation SYLVANIA LED Retrofit Kit replaces up to 250W HID lamps in street and area lighting fixtures, consuming only 40 watts of power. By taking advantage of the directional nature of LEDs, this revolutionary system uses Golden Dragon Plus LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors to deliver 5700K, 70 CRI white light only where needed, minimizing light trespass. With both Type III and Type V distributions and 50,000 hour life, it is ideal for the HID lamp conversion in existing fixtures to an environmentally preferable technology that offers substantial energy and maintenance cost savings, as well as dramatic improvements in light quality.
In addition to reducing streetlight energy consumption by up to 85 percent, the 2nd generation Post Top LED Retrofit kit provides significant cost savings without having to change the fixture. Intended to fit in most existing post top fixtures, the 2nd generation Post Top LED Retrofit kit is easy to install. The new form factor offers even more reduction of light pollution by eliminating upward light emission and enhancing light quality with better uniformity and color performance. This system is paired with the UL recognized, FCC compliant OSRAM OPTOTRONIC® power supply for optimal performance , which has 85 percent efficiency and 0.9 power factor.
Lighting typically accounts for 22 percent of a city’s total electrical consumption, so cities can benefit from an energy-efficient makeover. The Post Top LED retrofit kit is suitable for city street lighting, college campuses, industrial parks, parking lots and many other outdoor lighting applications. This adds to the security of the application by creating a better lit, more welcoming atmosphere for people to feel safe outdoors after dark.
