BetaLED® Introduces 100+ Lumen per Watt LED Luminaires

BetaLED, a division of Ruud Lighting, Inc., introduces the 304 Series luminaires, BetaLED’s first luminaire to achieve landmark performance of over 100 lumens per watt (LPW).

The 304 Series luminaires with 100+ LPW have the potential to make a significant impact on our environment by saving as much as 70 percent in energy use.

“We are continuously improving our BetaLED luminaire systems,” said Christopher Ruud, president of Ruud Lighting. “By optimizing all the components in the system we’re able to provide a breakthrough that reaches new heights in energy-savings and light levels while demonstrating measurable proven performance.”
  
BetaLED 304 Series luminaires are scalable up to 12,000 lumens of delivered light output. The new luminaire series achieves superior efficiency, longevity, lumen maintenance and light control while reducing energy use – benefits that are especially welcomed in applications where lights are on 24/7. By utilizing a two-level dimming option, the luminaires will save even more energy, providing end users with further reductions in operating costs while also helping the environment.
  
304 Series luminaires are available with 100+ LPW for recessed canopy and soffit applications with petroleum symmetric optics. The luminaires can be installed in singleor double-skin open-air petroleum station canopies and building soffits such as banks and quick serve restaurants. Other optics with the new technology upgrade will be available soon for additional applications such as parking structures.
  
Performance of 100+ LPW is achieved using the standard product drive current of 350mA. BetaLED 100+ LPW product performance has been tested and approved by an independent accredited third-party laboratory and meets industry performance and reliability standards. Product specification sheets, LM79 photometric tests, and IES photometric files are available at www.betaled.com. Consult factory for pricing and availability.
