The MLO was published in the summer of 2011 as an outdoor lighting template designed to help municipalities develop outdoor lighting standards that reduce glare, light trespass, and sky glow.
The ActiveLED system incorporates the LightSpace or ActiveBMS electrical device management system to manage the outdoor lighting including LED or conventional lighting in compliance with the control functionality outlined in the MLO. ActiveLED fixtures can also interface with any other Building Management System in operation today.
Each fixture is programmable and the target area can be specified by degrees. Shields are not necessary, allowing 100% of the lumen output to be utilized. The power supply on ActiveLED fixtures are DC or AC capable and can be used with battery packs.
A lighting installation that highlights the façade of the City Hall building in Brighton, Colorado was configured with colored lights that can be switched to white as desired. Each one of 33 total fixtures uses only 72W of power. Ringdale provides a 10-year guarantee against light loss.
The company’s product line includes over 70 application-specific ActiveLED light fixtures for categories such as street lighting, ornamental retrofits, general office lighting, cold storage facilities, and accent lighting.
