LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. NXT-M Luminaire Selected for 2014 IES Progress Report

LED Roadway Lighting Ltd. (LRL) is pleased to announce that the NXT-M luminaire has been selected for inclusion in the 2014 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report. The IES Progress Committee's stated mandate is to "keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world, and prepare a yearly review of achievements for the Illuminating Engineering Society." The NXT-M luminaire was submitted for consideration by the IES Progress Committee for introducing the following novel developments in the field of outdoor lighting:

  • First luminaire to offer tool-less replaceable LED engines and driver technology to higher classification streets and roadways.
  • The first in its class to offer field-switchable LED drive current. A switch mounted on the driver allows the user to change the LED drive current without removal of the luminaire or installing replacement parts. Allows adjustment from 350mA to 700mA.
  • Most efficient method of inventory control for users. Plate-mounted driver with quick disconnects offers simple tool-less field replacement. Field-adjustable drive current enables users to stock a single driver for a range of deployed luminaires.

The NXT™ series is designed for performance, reliability, and upgradeability. Easily removable components allow for future upgrades as technology evolves, prolonging the useful life of lighting infrastructure, and substantially reducing total cost of ownership. Our NXT-S luminaire was previously included in the Progress Report (2013) and was named Best in Class – Local Residential Roadway in the 2013 Next Generation Luminaires™ Competition.
