Roadway and Parking Lot

Streelight_Outdoor_RoadwayApplicationsThe challenging demands of roadway and parking lot lighting have created an opportunity for disruption by LED technology.  Roadway lighting provides crucial safety and vision not only for drivers, but for pedestrians, cyclists.  High quality roadway lighting has shown the ability to reduce crime, increase safety and even improve commerce.  A uniformly well-lit road is welcoming, comforting and safe.

Historic lighting technologies have difficulty uniformly illuminating roadways due to their source size and limited optical control. Furthermore, incumbent lighting technologies have short lifetimes when compared to LED technology and require constant maintenance and repair.

LED lighting systems are designed to deliver high quality, energy efficient lighting for commercial, arterial, and residential roadway and parking lot applications. Luminaires designed around the unique and innovative new Vero Series, Bridgelux Chip on Board (COB) LED arrays deliver high lumen output levels and long service life that dramatically reduce energy and maintenance costs. The LED systems deliver the lighting levels required while consuming less than half the wattage of conventional high pressure sodium lights.

Luminaires used in roadway lighting require long life combined with stable and consistent performance over the life of the product. Color temperatures (CCT) and color rendering index (CRI) vary to meet the needs of the lighting application.

The integration of refractive or reflective optics enhances the directional capabilities of the light source allowing for increased coefficients of utilization while limiting up and back light.  COB sources allow designers to reduce glare with fewer larger sources.

LED arrays deliver high performance, compact and cost-effective solid-state lighting solutions to serve the general lighting market. These products combine higher efficiency, lifetime, and reliability benefits of LEDs with the light output levels of many conventional light sources.

The new Bridgelux OLM Series integrates the LED source, optical lenses and electrical connection into an environmentally protected product.  This new sub-assembly from Bridgelux can be used as a base platform for a portfolio of products enabling the customer to leverage luminaire casting, reduce design costs and limit investment exposure. The OLM is designed to replace the prolific High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamp which has become the standard lighting source used in outdoor lighting.  The OLM supplies targeted lumen output levels with precise optics to achieve the lighting patterns required by the regulating bodies.

The Bridgelux LED products deliver high performance, compact and cost-effective solid-state lighting solutions to serve the general lighting market. These products combine higher efficiency, lifetime, and reliability benefits of LEDs with the light output levels of many conventional light sources.

Bridgelux LED light sources are ideally matched to street and roadway environments, please view our Bridgelux Street Light Application Brochure for more information.
