BetaLED introduces LED luminaires with 100 lm/W efficacy

Jan. 22, 2010
The Ruud Lighting subsidiary makes says that continuous improvements and optimizing all the components in the system have enabled its first 100 lm/W luminaire.
BetaLED, a division of Ruud Lighting, Inc., has introduced the 304 Series luminaires, which the company says have an efficacy of over 100 lumens per watt, at a standard drive current of 350 mA. The products are designed for use in petroleum station canopies and building soffits.

BetaLED says that product performance has been tested and approved by an independent accredited third-party laboratory, and meets industry performance and reliability standards. Product specification sheets, LM79 photometric tests, and IES photometric files are available from the company’s Betaled.

“We are continuously improving our BetaLED luminaire systems,” said Christopher Ruud, president of Ruud Lighting. “By optimizing all the components in the system we’re able to provide a breakthrough that reaches new heights in energy-savings and light levels while demonstrating measurable proven performance.”

The BetaLED 304 Series luminaires are scalable up to 12,000 lumens of delivered light output, and have a two-level dimming option.

The 100-lm/W luminaires are available for recessed canopy and soffit applications with petroleum symmetric optics. The luminaires can be installed in single- or double-skin open-air petroleum station canopies and building soffits such as banks and quick-serve restaurants. Other optics with the new technology upgrade will be available soon for additional applications such as parking structures.
