Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
Last month, LED Waves published the UL Photometric Outdoor Test Reports, LM-79 with Integrating Sphere and IES files for the Owl™ Outdoor LED Wall Pack, their new line of LED flood lights made in the USA. With six different brightness levels spanning from 10 to 200 Watt units, specifiers from all corners of the lighting market had been eagerly anticipating the arrival of this data.
Due to the Owl Pack’s classification as an outdoor wall pack, it currently does not conform to any product categories under Energy Star or DesignLights Consortium. Energy Star applies to green products typically for the home and for retail and hospitality settings, while the DLC incentivizes larger, more industrial lighting projects. Since the Owl™ Outdoor LED Wall Pack is used in a wide scope of applications ranging from residential, commercial, industrial and even transportation; it shall be considered for whichever program first recognizes outdoor LED wall packs.
However, new analysis of the Owl Pack test reports show that the lighting performance of each unit meets - and, in most cases, far exceeds – the technical specifications for outdoor luminaires qualified for these programs. These specifications include provisions for brightness (measured in lumen output), luminaire efficacy (measured in lumens per Watt), and qualities of light including Correlated Color Temperature (i.e. the light color measured in Kelvin) and Color Rendering Index (a scale up to 100).
LED Waves has posted on their blog a table comparing the performance of each Owl Pack to related categories of DLC-qualified outdoor luminaires. Based on the UL Photometric Outdoor Test Reports, LM-79 with Integrating Sphere and IES files; this resource is intended to help specifiers seeking energy saving rebates for outdoor LED flood lights based on performance rather than a third party designation.
Since the Owl Pack is designed and built onsite at LED Waves headquarters in Brooklyn, it also qualifies for building contracts with provisions for buying American-made products.
