Jeff Richardson, Aurora Group’s Divisional Director for UK Trade, explains how Enlite’s AriahPro high bay is engineered for industry and designed to last.
Across the UK, there are likely to be thousands of units on industrial and commercial estates in which HID’s are still in place but where an LED solution would make a worthwhile contribution to a company’s bank balance in addition to the nation’s energy saving targets.
With affordable, energy-saving LED lighting designed speciﬁ cally for this type of premises, it is becoming a highly attractive option for many building owners and users and one worth proposing.
By replacing ﬁttings on a one-for-one basis, there’s usually no need for a costly rewire (providing the wiring is still in good condition); and electrical work can be phased as budget and operations permit. A typical LED upgrade usually pays for itself in two years.
Having remained a popular industrial solution for many years, HIDs have now been measurably superseded by today’s LED technology, in respect of both light output and running costs.
A popular replacement, Enlite’s AriahPro 150lm/W LED highbays are cost effective, compact in size and reduce maintenance costs. Ideal for warehousing, manufacturing, conference centres, etc., they offer outstanding energy saving when compared with HID.
Let’s compare HID’s typical energy consumption with the AriahPro. Say 12 Low or Highbay 250 Watt Metal Halide ﬁttings are required to illuminate an industrial space and these would typically consume 3000W in total.
By retroﬁtting with AriahPro’s 150W option, energy consumption would be almost halved. With up to 30,000 Lumens to L70 50,000 hours, the highly thermal efﬁcient aluminium heatsink allows a low operating temperature of up to 50°C.
Enlite’s AriahPro comes in 100W, 150W and 200W options. Its 120° beam angle is standard and optional 70° polycarbonate or 60°/90° aluminium reﬂectors are available.
Engineered for industry and designed to last (it comes with a 5 year warranty), this high power LED high bay is IP65 rated, dimmable, offers 1.5kV surge protection and its die-cast housing has an IK08 impact rating for maximum protection in all environments.
The AriahProHighSense comes with the same features as the AriahPro but also includes a motion sensor with adjustable detection up to a radius of 8 metres.
With sensing options and the opportunity to make the AriahPro smart with Aurora’s AOne, energy costs can be reduced even further, making high industrial lighting running costs a thing of the past.
