GE Lighting is introducing its award-winning ERS LED Scalable Street Lighting range of luminaires to the Middle East region to provide energy efficient roadway lighting.
This GE Lighting LED system meets a wide range of applications, including highways, streets, boulevards and walking areas, and recently earned a Best-in-Class designation in the “Roadway Lighting” category in the 2012 Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Competition. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers, the NGL awards were created to recognize excellence in energy-efficient LED commercial lighting unit design.
An ecomagination product, building on GE’s commitment to imagine and build innovative Lighting solutions that solve today’s environmental challenges and benefit customers and society at large, the ERS LED Scalable fixture has a modular LED system starting from 43 watt to 258 watt that meets a wide range of road and street lighting requirements. It offers outstanding GE optics technology (Reflectors) which ensures maximum energy saving with improving visual conditions. Each wattage has 10 different optics for wide applications, with two different color Temperature options (CCT).
Dynamic design, system efficacy, optics efficiency, and wattage varieties were key facets that won the recognition for the ERS LED Luminaires.
