May 14, 2012
Date Announced: 14 May 2012 Milpitas, CA – Leotek Electronics USA Corp., a leading supplier of LED street lights, announces the release and availability of the ECObra-head™ designed to replace traditional high intensity discharge “cobra-head” style roadway luminaires. The ECObra-head™ utilizes new state-of-the-art light emitting diodes which provide many times the light output of previous generation of LEDs. Featuring Leotek’s precision micro-lens optical systems, these luminaires are designed to replace 50W to 400W HID luminaires while achieving typical energy savings of over 60%.Using a new patent-pending, internal thermal management system; the LED junction temperatures are controlled without the necessity of external heat fins providing a cleaner appearance. Combined with moderate drive currents, this thermal management system assures that the LEDs will continue burning with minimal depreciation of light output for decades. Perhaps most remarkably, these new street lights are being marketed for under $200 in lower wattage configurations. “Although there are many LED street lights on the market, Leotek has always identified HID products as being our primary competitor,” notes Chris Nye, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Leotek. “With this breakthrough in pricing levels, tremendous energy savings, and reduction in maintenance costs; cities, DOTs and utilities can now achieve much faster financial paybacks from changing out their HID street lights than ever before”.For more information about the ECObra-head™ LED street light, please contact an authorized Leotek Sales Representative, or visit www.leotek.com.
