Sentry Electric, one of North America's most experienced manufacturers of outdoor luminaires, announced that Architectural SSL Magazine has selected the company's SRL-LED Roadway Luminaire as a recipient of a 2014 Product Innovation Award.
February 23, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Sentry's Electric's innovative, award winning product, the SRL-LED luminaire, is featured in Architectural SSL Magazine's February 2014 edition and in their e newsletter, SSL Online. The SRL-LED luminaire provides time-proven design for streets and boulevards while its innovative optics deliver the many benefits associated with solid state lighting technology. Most notably, users will realize a reduction in energy consumption, maintenance, downtime, and various costs associated with today's sustainable initiatives.
The SRL-LED luminaire's unique combination of refractive borosilicate glass optics and LED modules is a groundbreaking advance in the evolution of solid state technology used for street and area lighting. Said one judge, "Its unique look is so different than what we've seen before in roadway luminaires. I like the modularity."
The SRL-LED's downward facing LEDs have an unobstructed path to the illuminated surface, providing a highly efficacious result of 92.9 lumens per watt. This performance exceeds or rivals most architectural as well as non-decorative roadway/area luminaires from around the industry.
The LED light engine is a Bridgelux Vero 18 module, which utilizes chip-on-board (COB) design to optimize performance while minimizing the size of the light emitting surface area. This allows for the integration with lenses and mini-reflectors to control optical distribution. With 80 CRI and 3SDCM consistency, visibility of the illuminated surface is improved as compared to most traditional high intensity discharge (HID) light sources.
The SRL-LED luminaire is highly resistant to damage, weather and the passage of time. With its high-strength cast aluminum structure and borosilicate glass optics, it is able to withstand the rigors associated with roadway lighting. When side-mounting, an optional twist lock receptacle on the top of the luminaire allows for the attachment of a receptacle photo control.
