Phoenix Lighting has launched a range of LED fixtures for high mast applications.
Phoenix is well known in the market for its line of ruggedised EcoMod LED fixtures for cranes and other applications on mobile equipment, where the fixture has to survive shock and vibration. Until now, Phoenix has not offered fixtures for high mast poles in yard applications.
Phoenix is now in an expansion phase, after JMC Capital Partners acquired a majority stake in the company last year. Earlier this year Phoenix acquired Bright Light Systems Inc., (BLS) which had assets and expertise in fixtures and controls technology for high mast applications, including wireless systems for lighting control and fixture monitoring.
Phoenix is now launching a fully integrated system for terminal yard lighting, with energy-efficient LED fixtures and an intelligent control system.
The new category of high mast fixtures features two product lines for different markets, Phoenix explains. “The Highland Series is a fixture designed to meet U.S. and Canadian port requirements and is UL/cUL listed to UL 1598. The Meridian Series has been designed for markets outside of North America and holds CE certification. The Highland and Meridian Series each feature 250W and 500W versions, customized optic options and the durable construction Phoenix EcoModTM 2 crane floodlights are known for. Like the EcoMod 2, these product lines are manufactured in Milwaukee.”
The fixtures are based on BLS legacy LED products, that have been upgraded to increase efficiency and lumen output, meet Phoenix design standards for vibration, moisture and corrosion, and engineered for efficient production at Phoenix’s factory in Milwaukee. “The design is consistent with the Phoenix approach to EcoMod2 fixtures for cranes: durability & reliability with a modular design, replaceable drivers and components, and customisable mounting brackets”, said Ryan Hertel, Managing Director for Phoenix’s Ports & Maritime Division.
The Highland Series is a direct replacement for the traditional Holophane 1000W floodlights that are common in outdoor yard lighting applications in the US. The 500W fixture weighs 18kg, while the 250W version weights 14kg.
The new high mast offering also includes Phoenix’s “Lighting Intelligence Technology System”. Combined with high mast fixtures, this allows lighting control, zone scheduling, asset management and real-time data collection. “The LIT System offers effortless commissioning with no software to install. It is designed to be simple and secure with an intuitive user interface that is remotely accessible. LIT System users benefit from maximized fixture life, increased safety and energy savings of up to 35%,” Phoenix adds.
Ryan Hertel welcomed the addition of high mast fixtures to the Phoenix portfolio. “Phoenix continues to deliver additional product categories and innovative lighting technologies to ports and terminals worldwide. This latest combination of products and intelligence provides our customers an opportunity to increase safety and efficiency of operations while effectively managing an asset to maximise return.”
