Ecolighting says that its latest LED street luminaire, Medusa, is weatherproof to IP65 and comes with an adjustable pole mounting.
The Medusa is designed with a Philips advanced Xitanium driver, Samsung or Cree LEDs and an NEMA five-pin plug which comes as standard for telematics such as TELENSA or similar open protocols.
Ecolighting says that the Medusa is ideal for use in streets, security, car parks and building exteriors. Importantly, it enables big cost savings and makes a substantial difference to energy bills, according to the company.
By using top quality LEDs in Medusa, Ecolighting ensures high thermal conductivity, minimal light decay, pure light, very stable performance and a 50,000-hour lifespan. As a result, Ecolighting offers a 10-year conditional guarantee with optional photocell control and a pre-programmed dimming cycle for smaller projects.
The Medusa comes in three body sizes and 10 different LED power outputs from 14-250W. The system uses LEDs producing 115 lumens per watt and a colour temperature of 5000K, top quality modular drivers and has surge protection to 10KV.
The company says that the Medusa has no radiation or emitting heat and is free from mercury, lead and other harmful substances. Its head can be adjusted from 0-90°, the optical design suits different roads, and it has a 70:30° road to pavement ratio. Its thermal management design has an effective low LED junction temperature which ensures the lifespan of the light source and its power supply.
For ease of installation, the streetlight has a built in spirit level and there are different power supply solutions available whether dimming or not dimming. The body comes with an advanced clip for tool-less operation and an easy to maintain fixed brace.
Ecolighting says that an installation of Medusa streetlight in Manchester reduced energy consumption by more than 60% on the previous lighting system.
