NXT-M Luminaire Recognized in 2015 Next Generation Luminaires Design Competition

LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. (LRL) is pleased to announce that the NXT-M luminaire has been recognized in the 2015 Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Outdoor Lighting Competition (www.ngldc.org). The announcement was made on May 5, 2015 at Lightfair International in New York City.

The NGL Solid-State Lighting Design Competition is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Illuminating Engineering Society and the International Association of Lighting Designers and “seeks to encourage technical innovation and recognize and promote excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires.” The judging panel selects luminaires on the basis of appropriate illuminance; light distribution; backlight, uplight and glare (BUG) ratings; glare control; serviceability and replacement; energy efficiency; lumen maintenance, and other factors.

The NXT™ series is designed for performance, reliability, and upgradeability, and is now available in three sizes (NXT-C, NXT-S and NXT-M). Easily removable components allow for future upgrades as technology evolves, prolonging the useful life of lighting infrastructure, and substantially reducing the total cost of ownership. LRL’s luminaires are installed in more than 45 countries.

Benefits of the NXT luminaire include:

  • Future-proof design allows for upgrade as technology evolves (e.g. improved LED efficiency)
  • Tool-less, field-replaceable LED light engine which allows for upgrading of LEDs and field-swapping of optics
  • Tool-less, field-replaceable driver
  • Smart Street Lighting for Smart Cities: Available with internal or external Smart Grid capabilities with leading industry partners

The NXT-S was previously selected as “Best in Class – Local Residential Roadway” in the 2013 Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Outdoor Lighting Competition. NXT-S and NXT-M have also been selected for inclusion in the prestigious Illuminating Engineering Society Progress Report (2013 and 2014 respectively).
