Cree announced it has expanded the LED street light portfolio with new LEDway High Output (HO) LED street light.
With its higher lumen output, the new LEDway HO LED street light enables the LEDway Series to address large multi-lane freeways and expressway applications, easily replacing inefficient High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting up to 400W from a single platform.
The Cree LEDway HO LED street light provides highly focused, directional light at nine adjustable lumen output levels, reducing energy consumption by more than 50 percent compared to outdated HPS street lights in most roadway applications, Cree said.
Cree has had several LEDway Series installations throughout North America and Europe. The new installation represents another example of why municipalities, Departments of Transportation and Investor Owned Utilities should move to proven Cree LED lighting over incumbent, inefficient technologies now.
“With virtually no maintenance and using significantly less energy than a 400W HPS, the LEDway HO LED street light dramatically lowers customers’ total cost of ownership,” said Greg Merritt, Cree vice president, marketing, lighting. “And when you include our 10-year limited warranty, the already compelling case for Cree LED lighting gets even better.”
Cree’s LEDway HO LED street light is enabled with NanoOptic Precision Delivery Grid optic technology to deliver better optical control and more uniform, white light than HPS. And with the LEDway HO LED street light’s adjustable lumen output option, customers can use one type of fixture to meet the lighting and energy needs for a variety of applications.
