STREET LIGHTS Q? Do you have a range of street lights? A! YES. We can provide both LED and Induction street lights but feature just 3 of the more popular induction designs in our catalogue. Through our partnership with our factory in China we can provide the majority of designs now on the market. Our introduction to Street Lighting is provided on our ISSUU site. Q? Do they have a range of wattages? A! YES. Our wattages range from 60W to 200W for our single lamp designs whilst our double bulb option can increase this to 330W. The light outputs are summarised as:60W provides 4,800 lumens equivalent to a Metal Halide 120W lamp 85W provides

6,800 lumens equivalent to a Metal Halide 170W lamp

125W provides 10,000 lumens equivalent to a Metal Halide 250W lamp 165W provides 13,200 lumens equivalent to a Metal Halide 330W lamp 200W provides 16,000 lumens equivalent to a Metal Halide 400W lamp Q? Is there a rule of thumb to describe the effectiveness of the Induction Street Light? A! YES but it is important always to carry out a photometric design using our IES files. In round terms, and as an example using a 200W street light, the following is a guide to operational usage:Lamp pole 8 metres gives 43 lux at ground with a 15m x 13 m light spread Lamp pole 10 metres gives 22 lux at ground with a 22m x 19m light spread Lamp pole 12 metres gives 12 lux at ground with a 22m x 20m spread Further detailed information is available from our design team who can offer appropriate photometric designs. Q? Do you have the street light fittings IES files and also the UnMetered Supply (UMS) Charge Code certifications? A! The IES files are available on request for each of the street light fittings. The results from our application for the appropriate Charge Codes are scheduled for late 2013.

Q? Can you supply a Street light with a dimmable option? A! Yes- our LED street lights can provide that option but at the present time it is not possible to make a dimmable ballast for an induction lamp as they are simply unstable and overheat! Our unique solution is with a double lamp street light fitting (or other fitting – high bay and floodlight) it is possible to use separate timers to each lamp and at a predetermined time switch one lamp off. Q? Are your street light fittings fully accredited? A! YES; all our fittings are CE, RoHS, and EMC accredited and are designed to be IP65 rated. Q? What warranty do you offer on the street light fitting? A! The fitting benefits from a 2 year warranty inclusive of lamp and ballast with an expected life time of 60,000 operating hours. Q? Is the light output suited to security applications and CCTV cameras? A! Yes the colour rendering index (CRI) is rated Ra>80 which is ideal for CCTV cameras and clear, clean, crisp images. Q? Do you have a broad based comparison of the various street light options? A! Yes – the schematic below compares traditional lighting with both LED and Induction options.
