The new Kaskara floodlight from DW Windsor has been specifically designed to bring the benefits of LED light sources to high performance, high light output area and general floodlighting applications. Field comparisons against a conventional metal halide floodlight show that a scheme using Kaskara will require a third fewer fittings and use around 58% less energy.
Unlike many floodlights that have been converted to LED, the Kaskara has been designed from the ground up with LED light sources in mind. As a result is has exceptional thermal management to extend the life of the LEDs, combined with wider and more even light distribution compared to typical HID floodlights, with no backward light spill.
This enhanced light distribution enables Kaskara floodlights with a 12,000 lumen output to provide comparable performance to 20,000 lumen HID floodlights. The long life and sustained output of the LED light sources also eliminates the need for overlighting at the beginning of life, as well as reducing maintenance costs by eliminating re-lamping schedules. The latter is particularly beneficial in applications where access to the floodlight is difficult and/or disruptive.
For optimum energy savings, Kaskara is compatible with all major Central Management Systems (CMS), supporting switching, dimming and photocell control. The LED light source provides a colour temperature of 5000K and a colour rendering of Ra 65.
Kaskara floodlights can be wall or column mounted, are adjustable from 10deg. down to +20deg and for ease of installation and maintenance a plug and socket connector is used for mains input.
