Eying municipal retrofits mandated by Federal Energy Policy Act (EPACT 2005) and the Energy Independence and Security Act, Dialight has introduced its latest LED luminaire for street lighting applications.

The regulations in question require that conventional mercury lamps and other fixtures between 150 and 500 watts in capacity be replaced by more energy-efficient alternatives. The Dialight StreetSense SL series is intended to meet that need.

The 131 watt LED fixture can replace a 250-watt mercury vapor luminaire. The LM-79 product, for example, will consume up to 55 percent less energy than the legacy technology. The StreetSense fixtures are designed to have a service life of more than 12 years. Another key benefit is that they can be "smart." In other words, the fixtures can be monitored and controlled remotely via some of the intelligent communications networks that are part of smart city and smart transportation initiatives.
