ROSEMONT, IL -- Appleton Group, a division of Emerson Industrial Automation, today expanded its Areamaster™ LED floodlight line with a non-rated, non-hazardous location version that is more rugged and energy-efficient than competitors' industrial-grade fixtures, yet at a similar price point, bringing a new level of value to the non-hazardous LED lighting market.
The new Industrial Areamaster LED is an energy-efficient alternative to conventional HID, fluorescent or incandescent floodlights. It is the perfect retrofit lighting solution for damp or wet outdoor locations or in industrial workplaces such as warehouses, assembly lines and loading docks, where it provides powerful, efficient lighting.
In 120-277V, the Industrial Areamaster LED delivers an optimal 18,000+ lumens of cool white light in a 130 degree (horizontal) x 132 degree (vertical) beam spread, which is exceptionally wide for a fixture measuring only 15-inchs square. Moreover, its highly directional light does not require the use of external optics, resulting in system efficiencies as high as 80 percent. The 750 watt equivalent industrial Areamaster LED has a correlated color temperature of 5665K resulting in a cool white hue and an impressive Color Rendering Index (CRI) rating of 70. This compares favorably to the 62 CRI rating for a pulse start metal halide or the 22 CRI rating of a high-pressure sodium lamp.
The Industrial Areamaster LED is fast and easy to install with a choice of either pendant, yoke or chain mounting, while its low profile makes it ideal for tight areas or low ceilings. Plus, because floodlighting is often deployed in public spaces, Appleton took special care to combine contemporary styling with the ruggedized, weather-proof design. Its one-piece, pressure-clad housing is precision machined from copper-free aluminum, and is finished with architectural bronze polyester for a fixture that is as functional as it is handsome.
Options available with the fixtures include a diffused polycarbonate lens (a thermal shock and impact resistant glass lens comes standard) and fusing for the 250 watt and 400 watt equivalent fixtures.
