Acuity Brands, Inc. announces the launch of new Autobahn Series ATBS LED Roadway and Security luminaires from American Electric Lighting®.
The new LED luminaires offer a sleek, attractive appearance and 60 percent greater efficiency compared to traditional high intensity discharge (HID) systems. Designed to replace 50- to 150-watt high pressure sodium, 100-watt metal halide and 175-watt mercury vapor fixtures, the new luminaires are lighter weight (12 pounds) and have less effective projected area (EPA) than cobrahead and NEMA head luminaires.
Autobahn Series ATBS LED luminaires feature IP66 rated borosilicate glass optics to improve visibility, ensure longevity and minimize dirt depreciation. The luminaires are available with Type II, Type III, or Type V roadway distributions and may be purchased with an optional acrylic refractor to boost vertical foot-candles. Standard correlated color temperatures (CCT) are 4000K and 5000K.
“Energy efficiency and holistic longevity make Autobahn Series ATBS LED luminaires a reliable and sustainable solution to replace legacy fixtures,” said Scott Posey, Acuity Brands Lighting Value Stream Manager, Infrastructure Lighting. “Lineman-friendly features simplify installation and a long reliable operating life reduces the time and costs typically associated with maintaining traditional HID products.”
Autobahn Series ATBS LED luminaires offer ANSI Class C Surge Protection, are Nighttime Friendly™ and designed to operate at 40ºC ambient. Suggested applications include municipal streets and public roadways, campuses, residential areas, military bases, industrial and municipal parks, hotels and resorts, and recreation centers.
