Date Announced: 14 May 2010 Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. -– OSRAM SYLVANIA, North American leader in lighting, is known for delivering quality, performance products to offer sustainable solutions across all applications. Utilizing the latest LED technologies, OSRAM SYLVANIA has developed its own solid-state capabilities, including LED light sources, complete LED systems, LED luminaires and OLEDs. Among the company’s newest LED innovations is the second generation D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit, an advanced solution for outdoor area lighting.The SYLVANIAD6 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 LEDs to deliver either 5000K or 5700K 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 fixtures using HID lamps to an environmentally preferable technology, offering 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 new form factor of the D6 Area Light LED Retrofit Kit 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 makeover. The D6 Area Light LED retrofit kit is suitable 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.
