MaxLite has announced Wide Type 5 Optics options in its MaxLED series of LED-based area lights. While the new optics still provide full-cutoff performance, the design can deliver 7×7 NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) light distribution that coves a 130° beam spreads.

The company has previously only supported beam patterns as wide as the 5×5 NEMA pattern that spans 70-100°. The broader beam can enable greater distances between poles in an area–lighting installation while still meeting regulatory guidelines on uplight.

The LED area lights are available in 70W, 100W, and 140W versions offering more than 50% reductions in energy usage over the HID products that they would replace. MaxLight said it is awaiting DesignLights Consortium certification for the products.

The fixtures are supplied with a CCT of 5000K and CRI in the 68-70 range. Efficacy ranges from 64 to 76 lm/W. All of the products are rated for 50,000 hours of life and backed with a five year warranty. The optics can deliver both full-flood beam patterns and Type V patterns with an optional MaxFocus Collimator that lengthens the throw.
