Dialight’s New 100W LED Luminaire Outshines 250W HPS

Dialight’s new 100W high brightness SafeSite® 250 Series LED fixture is designed to replace 250W High Pressure Sodium (HPS) light sources in hazardous location applications.

SafeSite® 250 Series is Dialight’s latest addition to its innovative SafeSite range of LED fixtures and, using only 100W per fixture, has been created to outperform 250W HPS lighting sources in several ways.  Firstly by replacing traditional HPS fixtures that require 250W, the SafeSite 250 Series luminaire offers power savings of 60%. Secondly, whereas HPS lamps emit light almost exclusively in the orange area of the color spectrum, SafeSite delivers pure “full spectrum” white light that is much easier to see under. This is especially important in low light level conditions when the eye’s rod receptors are more used in visual acuity than the cone receptors and is critical for tasks like viewing color coded wiring, reading colored plaques and distinguishing steam from the smoke of a fire.
