LED Eco Lights has expanded its Goodlight range of energy efficient, low-maintenance solutions for commercial and industrial lighting, with its GX range of robust and weatherproof LED replacement luminaires.
The new GX range is designed to replace old-fashioned HID lighting (SON, metal halide, mercury-vapour etc) and comprises three styles based around functionality. The ultra-bright pendant high bay and low bay fixtures ‘flood’ areas with uniform lighting, while linear high bay lighting can be used more specifically in racking and aisle applications to light up the shelf face and floors below.
Unlike metal halide and high pressure sodium options, which are less effective at dimming or short switching cycles, all GX models are fully controllable (dimmable). They can dim up or down based on occupancy or the amount of daylight available, allowing further energy efficiency savings.
Being part of a controllable network means that the GX1 options become a lighting system. They also offer IP65 protection, a 50,000-hour lifespan and a wide temperature range operation, making them suitable for use in extreme temperatures.
The new GX1 LED High Bay delivers a light output equivalent to a 400W SON luminaire, but draws only 120W, the company explains. It offers lamp efficacy of up to 125Lm/W and a beam angle of 120°. Designed for installations at 6m and above, it is suitable for applications from storage and warehousing, through industrial sites, to atria, leisure and retail buildings.
The design features phase change material (PCM) in a copper cooling core that is designed to maintain super-bright output from the LEDs over a prolonged period, due to effective cooling. In addition, the fixture’s nano-coated reflector is designed to boost light yield by a further 10%, says Goodlight.
For installations at greater heights, the GX1 Plus reflector-less version is available. With a wattage up to 150W and light output of 135Lm/W, this model can be installed at 10m and above.
For linear lighting requirements, the new GX2 Linear LED High Bay is offered in 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm versions matching the light output of traditional 150W to 500W fixtures.
Maximum lamp efficacy is 130Lm/W, designed by Goodlight to offer an energy saving up to 85% and enabling installation at four to 12m. The ﬁtting is glass-free and shatter-proof, featuring a diffused PC lens which provides a uniform light pattern, making it suitable for food and drink production environments. The GX2 linear high bay is able to focus the light where it is needed – in aisles, for example.
Rounding off the GX range is the GX1 LED Low Bay/Floodlight LED, which the company says offers optimum light output, reliability and up to 75% in energy savings. Operating over a 40-50°C temperature range, it has been designed for installations at 4m and above in applications including storage, warehousing, external buildings, car parks, industrial, atria and retail/sheds. Available in 80W, 120W, 160W, 200W and 240W powers, the lights deliver up to 110Lm/W and are also glass-free. Further options include a choice of Matte Black or Ice White finish in the aluminium and PC housing.
All GX range lights are dimmable, with the high bay LEDs offering three-in-one dimming, 1-10V, PWM Signal and Resistance. The range has delivered lighting in installations at Bower & Wilkins, the Civil Aviation Authority, Middlesex Aerospace, Scottish Prison Service, European Glass Group, Toyota Motors and British Airways.
