FARMINGDALE, N.J. and LONDON, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovation leader in LED lighting technology, today announced the launch of its high-output LED Vigilant High Bay offering the first truly, viable replacement for costly and inefficient 1,000W traditional HID high-output fixtures. Delivering 125 lumens per watt at less than half the power consumption of conventional HID products, the new Vigilant high-output LED High Bay is a true innovation, offering approximately 60,000 lumen output from a single 480W Dialight-designed power supply, in a sleek, durable and lightweight package.
The new Vigilant High Bay is now UL1598 and CSA C22.2 certified for dry location use and backed by Dialight's exclusive 10-year full-performance warranty covering the entire fixture, drivers and power supply.
Designed to provide exceptional visibility and clarity specifically for high ceiling, high ambient temperature industrial applications such as steel, automotive, aircraft and other industrial and manufacturing facilities, the Vigilant High Bay features custom narrow optics for maximum light levels and uniformity. An ambient temperature rating of -40°C to +65°C ensures reliable performance in the harshest indoor environments. At just 18 inches tall and 24 inch diameter-and weighing less than 32 pounds, the Vigilant High Bay is significantly smaller and lighter than other available LED high-output fixtures on the market, for superior ease of installation.
"The high cost associated with operating and maintaining HID light fixtures is amplified significantly when 1,000W fixtures are required," said Roy Burton, Group Chief Executive of Dialight plc. "Between the tremendous energy costs and frequent maintenance requiring tall boom lifts and production shut downs 1,000W high bays are a huge drain on power and resources. Previously, there were very few available LED solutions on the market, providing a truly viable replacement for these high-light output requirements. But now, Dialight's new Vigilant High Bay represents a great opportunity for facility managers to replace antiquated HIDs with the most advanced technology and get the output they need, while realizing a rapid ROI and savings that will continue to add up for more than a decade."
The easy-to-install high output Vigilant LED High Bay features multiple mounting options, including ceiling and pendant mount and high-durability glass lenses for maximum reliability and performance, even in harsh conditions. The product will be available for both 120-277V and 347-480V applications.
The high-output Vigilant LED High Bay will soon be available with CE compliance as well as with multiple controls platforms including industry standard IEEE 802.15.4 compliant Jennet wireless and DALI wired, and simple 0-10V dimming models.
