GE Lighting has expanded its Albeo light-emitting diode (LED) high-bay lighting portfolio to offer greater efficiency than previous generations and to meet the latest global standards.
GE’s Albeo ABH2-Series and ABHG-Series LED Luminaires offer a suitable modular lighting solution for both retrofit and new construction of warehouses, manufacturing facilities, cold storage, sports arenas, convention centres and other commercial spaces with high ceilings. With greater foot-candle performance and a life rating of 100,000 hours at L70, the new LED lighting fixtures help to increase light levels while reducing lighting energy costs and associated maintenance, according to the company.
Featuring a configurable design that can accommodate up to six LED modules, the ABH2-Series LED Luminaire is a one-to-one replacement for ABHX-Series models. It is available in 15 lumen packages that deliver more light while consuming less energy than ABHX, resulting in shorter payback for end users. The ABHG-Series has a customisable design that can accommodate up to four modules, is available in a CE-certified version (i.e., meets EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements) and, according to the company, optimises the LED system inside the fixture to yield even greater energy efficiency.
The new LED lighting fixtures feature the same heat-sinking and LED technology as earlier fixtures, as well as various lensing options to provide illumination with minimal glare and improved uniformity for open floor and racked aisle environments. The fixtures’ strong, durable aluminium housing also make them suitable for manufacturing and sporting environments where harsh conditions and travelling debris can interfere with and damage lighting structures.
Both LED lighting fixtures can replace a range of legacy high bay lighting systems: 250-watt (W) to 1500W high-intensity discharge (HID) and four- to eight-lamp T5/T8 high-intensity fluorescent lighting, which typically provide 20,000 to 30,000 hours before burn out. They can be paired with motion, daylight and wireless controls for greater energy savings and lower maintenance costs.
