LED luminaires suit outdoor lighting applications

Cree Inc. announces the Aeroblades series of LED luminaires for outdoor lighting applications. The new LEDs are based on the company's advanced BetaLED technology with NanoOptic lighting control.

Designed and engineered with Speirs + Major, an international lighting design firm, the Aeroblades luminaire series takes a bold approach to architectural street, area, and security lighting. According to company officials, Aeroblades luminaires redefine exterior lighting by enabling beautiful LED implementation while optimizing thermal management, light control, efficiency, longevity and payback.

The Aeroblades series boasts a unique modular design that allows the light engine to bring both versatility and precision to outdoor applications. Further, the luminaires can be fine-tuned with NanoOptic technology optical control and the number of luminaire blades to meet specific illumination needs in smaller increments than either traditional designs or competitive LED products.

Engineering includes an innovative thermal management system that enables higher lumen output and provides significant boosts to lifetime, efficacy, and color consistency. All luminaires have the option of 0 to 10-V dimming, are designed to meet a minimum L70 (lumen maintenance) of 80,000 hours, and feature a five-year warranty.

The versatile and modular design of the Aeroblades series enables customers to custom-design luminaires to best fit their application. The luminaires will initially be available in more than 300 combinations, including two, four, or six blade versions, 20 optical distributions, four color temperatures (3,000, 3,500, 4,000 and 5,700 K), four drive currents, two pole mount and wall mount versions, and seven DeltaGuard paint finishes.
