LEDtronics expands its LED Post Top Series for walkway and parking lot lighting

LEDtronics® Inc. announces the latest product in its line of Tunable LED Post Top Lamps with even, omnidirectional lighting that offers energy savings of up to 85 percent over MH and HPS counterparts.

Known in the industry as corn bulbs for their shape, this latest high-lumen addition features multi-wattage and multi-color temperature versatility with the ability to choose from three different CCTs — 3000K Warm White, 4000K Natural White and 5000K Pure White, and variable wattage options of 45, 54 or 63 Watts.

Customizable to fit any lighting need and with a switchable selection of wattages and CCTs, this lightweight LEDtronics post-top luminaire offers a wide range of features and benefits that make it ideal for a variety of applications, easily replacing E39 CFL bulbs in street post-top lighting, outdoor parking area lighting, driveway and walkway lighting, security lighting, parks, playgrounds, railroad stations, platforms, pendant and globe lighting, among others.

The UL-listed LED26GCT series is safe to use in enclosed luminaires, and directly replaces HID lamps with a simple ballast bypass — at 45W it replaces 70W HPS; at 54W replaces 100W HPS, and at 63W replaces 150W MH — all at 5000K and 300W THQ.

Reducing additional energy consumption by bypassing the ballast allows the lamp to operate in a voltage input range of 100 to 277 VAC. It comes in E39 mogul screw base, with a wide operating temperature range of -22°F to ~+140°F (~-30°C to ~+60°C).

The new LED26GCT lamp directs a uniform, 360 degree beam, with lumens ranging from 6,610 to 9,280, and boasting luminous efficacy of 142 to 163, all depending on wattage and CCT selection. Maximum candela ranges from 663 to 914. It also features outstanding color fidelity with a CRI equal to or greater than 80 that enhances color nuances.

The new state-of-the-art lamp maintains over 70 percent or greater of LED lumens for over 50,000 hours or 10 years of operation — a lifespan far longer than the equivalent halogen or HID bulb! The solid-state design renders it impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. In addition, LEDs do not emit large amounts of heat, and little to no ultraviolet or infrared light.

Since LED lights are much more energy-efficient than old-technology lighting, this lamp is perfect for operating with an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments.

This versatile LED26GCT omnidirectional, UL-listed LED post-top bulb with tunable wattage and CCT comes with an unconditional 5-year LEDtronics factory warranty, and is available through LEDtronics distributors. Other selectable wattages are available for large quantities and qualified applications.
