Sustainable flood light reduces energy consumption and total cost of ownership

GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) introduces Predator® LED floodlights from Holophane® that save up to 60 percent in energy costs, while cutting maintenance by as much as 50 percent compared to a metal halide floodlight. The Predator family is comprised of sustainable PMLED and PLLED luminaires, which reduce CO2 emissions by up to 60 percent while providing a service life of over 20 years. Predator LED floodlights are applicable for a range of environments, including parking lots, building facades, bridges, power plants, water and waste water treatment plants, facility perimeters and secure areas.
“Holophane Predator LED floodlights are designed to significantly reduce the total cost of ownership,” said Dave Deck, Acuity Brands Value Stream Manager, Specialty Lighting. “Longer life, up to 60% reduction in energy, no need to relamp and little to no maintenance over 20 years combine together to dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership versus traditional HID alternatives. The LED luminaires also provide the improved visibility associated with a whiter light.”

PMLED medium luminaires are available with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 chip-on-board (COB) modules and replace conventional 100- to 400-watt floods. PLLED large luminaires are offered with 7, 8 or 9 COB modules to replace conventional 400- to 1,000-watt floods. Both luminaires offer the precision and permanence of glass optics, with L70 and driver life greater than 100,000 hours.

Other features and benefits of Predator LED floodlights include the following:
- Optimized thermal management system for reliability and long life;
- Segmented internal reflectors for outstanding field to beam ratios, uniformity and spacing;
- Die-cast aluminum housing for longevity;
- Optional tool-less entry and integral three-stage terminal block to ease installation;
- Surge protection for reliability and long life;
- Optional ROAMview™ controls for operational scheduling, dimming, monitoring and diagnostics;
- Multiple lumen packages offering application flexibility;
- ANSI three-pin locking style receptacle is standard with optional five-pin receptacle;
- Five distribution patterns (4X4, 4X5, 5X5, 6X5 and 6X6);

New PMLED and PLLED floodlights are available with 4,000K or 5,000K correlated color temperature (CCT) and a color rendering index (CRI) of 70. Other options include bolted or latched door, wire or vandal guard, and visors. Fixture mounting options include tenon-slipfitter knuckle, galvanized steel yoke or stainless steel yoke.

Both Predator LED luminaires have an IP66 engine rating, 3G vibration rating and a super durable paint over epoxy primer with a 5000 hour salt fog rating.
