Acuity's American Electric Lighting LNH2 luminaires provide economical conversion from HID to LED security lighting

Sept. 29, 2014
New LNH2 luminaires from American Electric Lighting® provide a cost-effective solution to convert existing HID security lighting systems to LED. Presenting a familiar NEMA Head look, LNH2 luminaires provide a 60 percent energy reduction, while cutting maintenance costs by half to ensure very rapid payback versus HID.

Environmentally friendly LNH2 LED luminaires improve visibility by supplying a comfortable and efficient white light. Performance packages of 1800, 2500, 3300, 4200 and 5800 lumens and a choice of Roadway Type III or Type V distribution allow application flexibility. The LNH2 fixtures are also available with several optics, including open bottom acrylic, no acrylic refractor, or no acrylic refractor-zero uplight.

“New LNH2 luminaires take security lighting into the future by providing a high level of visibility coupled with significantly lower operating and maintenance costs,” said Scott Posey, Acuity Brands Lighting Roadway and Security Product Manager. “Long life and a substantial decrease in CO2 emissions result in a highly sustainable solution.”

LNH2 luminaires are offered with optional 10-year or 20-year rated solid-state photocontrols and a 3, 5 or 7-pin photocontrol receptacle. Suggested applications include security areas, storage yards, loading and receiving areas and rural residences.

The luminaires come unpainted as standard or may be ordered with gray paint. For more details about new LNH2 luminaires for security lighting, visit or call 800-754-0463.
