Seattle – April, 18 2013. Evluma is pleased to announce that all four models of its AreaMax LED Lighting product line are now DesignLights ™ Consortium qualified. DLC qualification is reserved for high-quality, high-performing commercial LED products and makes the AreaMax eligible for energy efficiency program incentives. The 40W AreaMax is 70-80% more energy efficient than the legacy HID dusk-till-dawn fixtures it is designed to replace.
The AreaMax models that are DLC Qualified are the 4000K and 5500K options with either a dome lens (B2-U2-G1) or a flat full-cutoff lens (B1-U0-G1). The 4000K full-cutoff AreaMax was the first to qualify under the Outdoor Pole/Arm-mounted Area and Roadway Luminaires category with the remaining three models qualifying as “Family Models.”
A groundbreaking Photocontrol Failsafe Mode is built into all models of AreaMax. “The Photocontrol failsafe mode nearly eliminates maintenance expense on a device that is already energy efficient and long lasting,” said David Tanonis, VP of Sales and Marketing at Evluma. “Replacing the photocontrol is no longer required.” Designed for new installations, or where retrofitting existing 100W-175W HID fixtures may not be the preferred option, the AreaMax has an L70 of 70,000 hours and a 5 year warranty. At 93 lm/W for the 5500K version, the AreaMax delivers .01 fc at 4 mounting heights, a level of light output familiar to owners of older HID fixtures, but with improved color quality, better visibility and reduced light pollution.
AreaMax fixture owners can also purchase ConnectLED, a software application that operates using Bluetooth Smart to commission/decommission the fixture, create fixture specific brightness settings, and upload custom dimming algorithms.
DLC Qualified AreaMax model numbers are as follows: AMAX-40W-4K-6-V-C, AMAX-40W-4K-6-V-D, AMAX-40W-5K-6-V-C, AMAX-40W-5K-6-V-D. LM-79 and In-Situ test reports can be found at www.evluma.com.
