American Electric Lighting Launches LED Security Luminaires

March 29, 2012

Acuity Brands, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the LED NEMA Head Series (LNH) luminaire from American Electric Lighting®. The LNH luminaire maintains the familiar NEMA Head aesthetic, but uses LED technology to produce a comfortable and efficient white light that significantly reduces operating costs and extends the fixture life.

Intended for security areas, storage yards, rural areas, area lighting, loading and receiving areas, the LNH luminaire features:

  • More than 65 percent energy cost reduction compared to 175MV HID
  • A 50 percent reduction in maintenance costs compared to HID
  • An estimated 20-year product life

“The new LNH luminaire is the right choice when it comes to sustainable security lighting solutions,” said Rob Drago, VP Infrastructure Lighting, Acuity Brands. “Security is a prime concern for many facilities and municipalities, and the LNH luminaire uses efficient white light to improve visibility, ensuring key areas are well lit from dusk to dawn.”

Consuming only 60 watts of input power, the LNH luminaire reduces CO2 emissions by .4 metric tons annually. The significant reduction in energy use and lighting maintenance coupled with the extremely long life of the LNH luminaire results in a fixture that provides the lowest total cost of ownership.
