Date Announced: 01 Aug 2012 New HMAO™ LED luminaire features multiple lumen packages to maximize energy savings and deliver up to 100,000 hours of maintenance-free operation. GRANVILLE, Ohio – Providing innovative high mast lighting solutions for more than five decades, Holophane has expanded its High Mast Advanced Optix™ (HMAO) lighting systems to include LED technology. Engineered with a state-of-the-art prismatic borosilicate glass advanced optics, the HMAO™ LED luminaire is ideal for large area and roadway applications including airports, rail yards, sea terminals, industrial facilities, DOT interchanges and correctional facilities. The HMAO LED luminaire features prismatic glass optics that provides overlapping distribution from each LED module to ensure excellent uniformity of light and eliminates potential dark spots. The uniformity of the vertical and horizontal lighting reduces glare. HMAO LED luminaires direct the lighting distribution on task due to the high efficacy of the LED chip-on-board modular light engine. Also, by minimizing the direct view of the source LED with prismatic glass optics, the HMAO LED luminaires help improve visual comfort. The 180-degree rotating optical assembly can be aligned “street side” with roadways for asymmetric light distribution.“The HMAO LED luminaire provides a long life rating of 25 years, reducing maintenance costs by 50% and reducing energy costs and C02 emissions by up to 74% over HID lighting systems,” said David Deck, Product and Market Manager, Infrastructure, Acuity Brands Lighting.The HMAO LED luminaire is available in multiple lumen packages to provide customers options for light levels and energy savings. Available for new construction or retrofitting, HMAO LED luminaires make it easy to replace existing HID luminaires without rewiring or changing existing luminaire mounting arms. In addition, the HMAO LED luminaire is 3G rated for high vibration applications. Adjustable twist-off photocontrols come standard, and the luminaire is compatible with the ROAM® wireless monitoring system from Acuity Brands.
