Stray Light introduces new luminare featuring Luxim LEP technology

Stray Light Optical Technologies has introduced its new street light designed around Luxim's Light E

The luminaire is the first of Stray Light Optical's Tesla series, the company's portfolio of energy-efficient solutions for general lighting.

This marks the first public deployment of Luxim's LEP technology for street light applications. The light source can illuminate high-intensity applications such as projection displays, medical instrumentation devices and entertainment spotlights, along with other general lighting applications, the company said.

Gerald Rea, president of Stray Light Optical Technologies, said: "Parking fixtures, canopy fixtures, flood lights and a family of application-specific fixtures that leverage the benefits of the LEP sources will hit the market in the first half of this year."

Luxim's vice president of sales, Geoff Brown, claims that the new luminaire will reduce energy consumption by up to 50%. At current power costs, this means an annual savings of approximately $145 per fixture.

Mr Brown, said: "When it comes to efficiency gains in the general lighting market, Luxim continues to lead. Furthermore, our lumen package has increased by 40% in the last 12 months, with every 5 per cent gain making the technology a perfect fit for more and more applications.

''When combined, the efficiency improvements, exceptional colour quality and 50,000-hour life make LEP the best possible source for high-illuminance applications like streets, parking lots, big-box retailers, factories and distribution centers. Moreover, our tic-tac-sized plasma light source enables a new generation of compact, eco-friendly and cost-effective fixtures."
