Evluma’s New 50W LED Clearlight Beacon Boosts Lumens

Introducing the Clearlight Beacon, the powerful, new 50W member of the Clearlight line of LED replacement luminaires for dusk-till-dawn fixtures. At 66 lumens per watt (LPW), the Beacon has the highest LPW of any Clearlight yet. Manufactured by Evluma, the Beacon employs CREE XP-G Outdoor White LEDs and a new high-powered integral driver designed by Evluma’s engineers.

The 50W Clearlight Beacon is a mogul base, direct screw-in replacement for 50-175W MV and 70-150W HPS dusk-till-dawn fixtures. Light on the ground is delivered in a circular, Type V pattern. Prior to releasing the Beacon, Evluma spent months in the field with over 20 different electrical cooperatives and municipalities developing a product that would emit a wide angle of light while reducing the glare that frequently accompanies outdoor area lighting.

The Beacon uses highly efficient reflective optics and a diffused customized optical acrylic cover to help create a wide candela distribution. With a peak vertical angle just below 70, the Beacon emits up to .01 footcandles (full moonlight) at four mounting heights per side. “Our customers asked for a replacement LED luminaire that would extend visibility over a great distance. Because LED lighting offers better color rendering and a more uniform surface illuminance than HPS or MV, it is possible to do more with less light,” said Keith Miller, President and CEO of Evluma.

Evluma suggests pairing the Beacon with other members of the Clearlight family, such as the Dark Sky Friendly 40W EcoSpot, to strategically control what is illuminated and how. Dusk-till-dawn fixtures previously limited to a single function can be customized. “For example, you could place a Beacon in a fixture near a parking lot, but then use an EcoSpot for the fixture next to an apartment building where light trespass might be an issue,” said David Tanonis, VP of Sales & Marketing at Evluma. “At the same time, owners of Mercury Vapor fixtures can easily phase out environmentally hazardous bulbs and avoid an unnecessary maintenance burden. Energy efficiency, while key, doesn’t have to be the only thing driving a change in lighting practice.”

The Clearlight Beacon has a 5 year warranty and is 50% more energy efficient than a 100W HPS bulb and 70% more energy efficient than a175W MV bulb. As with all Clearlights, an active cooling system keeps the LED junction temperature low, resulting in long life and delivering an estimated L70 of 70,000 hours or longer. LM-79 data for the Clearlight is available at  NRTL (UL equivalent) testing is currently underway at MET Laboratories. All Clearlight products are manufactured in Seattle, WA from US and imported parts.  Lead-time on orders is estimated at 4-6 weeks ARO.
