Osram Sylvania furthers LED area lighting capabilities with new options

Date Announced: 15 Dec 2010

Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader Osram Sylvania, is known for delivering quality performance products across all applications. Having developed their own solid-state capabilities, including LED light sources, complete LED systems, LED luminaires and OLEDs, the company is pleased to announce new capabilities for the second generation D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit, an advanced solution for outdoor area lighting.

Utilizing the latest LED technologies, Osram Sylvania has extended the capabilities of the D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit. Designed in two wattages – 35W and 55W – the systems are available in 5600K, 5000K and new 4100K options. The 55W system is available in two light distribution patterns: Street (Type III) with an oblong radiation pattern and Area (Type V) with a circular radiation pattern for areas such as walkways or garages, and the 35W system is available in Type V medium only. The directional light of the high-power LEDs improves light distribution uniformity for better visibility and safety.

The Sylvania D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit replaces up to 175W HID lamps in street and area lighting fixtures, consuming only 55 watts of power. Taking advantage of the directional nature of LEDs, this revolutionary system uses high power LED fixtures to deliver white light only where needed, minimizing light trespass. With both Type III and Type V distributions and 50,000-hour life (L70), the D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit is ideal for converting conventional fixtures using HID lamps to an environmentally preferable technology, which offers substantial energy and maintenance cost savings as well as dramatic improvements in light quality.

In addition to reducing energy consumption by up to 68 percent, the second-generation D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit, with a small outer diameter of just 6.5 inches, is designed to fit within most existing area lighting fixtures and is suitable for most applications up to a 30-foot mounting height. With easy installation and mounting hardware included, the D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit offers additional savings in maintenance and replacement costs.

The D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit also offers a greater reduction of light pollution, by eliminating upward light emission and enhancing light quality with better uniformity and color performance. Its smaller size is compatible with a wider variety of fixture types, including post top, shoebox and surface-mounted luminaires. This system is paired with the UL recognized, FCC compliant Osram Optotronic power supply for optimal performance, which has 85 percent efficiency and 0.9 power factor.

Lighting typically accounts for 22 percent of a city’s total electrical consumption, so cities can benefit significantly from an energy-efficient lighting makeover. The D6 Area Light LED retrofit kit joins the current D11 Area Light LED offering as a suitable option for city streets, college campuses, industrial parks, parking lots and many other outdoor applications. The D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit provides added security by providing more accurate color rendering, creating a better-lit, more welcoming atmosphere, thereby making people feel safer outdoors after nightfall.
