4 December, 2012, Taipei, Taiwan – GlacialLight, a division of the Taiwanese technology manufacturer, GlacialTech Inc., has added the GL-FL60, a 60W AC-input LED Flood Light with Philips Lumileds LED chips, to its energy efficient LED f lood l ight series.
The GL-FL60 provides bright and pleasing illumination suitable for indoor and outdoor retail, commercial, and industrial external lighting applications. This flood light is especially suited to be used as architectural lighting for buildings and monuments. With proper positioning of these flood lights, beautiful details can be brought alive during night.
As the GL-FL60 Flood Light can accept a wide range of AC voltages – from 100 to 277 volts – it is suitable for a variety of operating environments. Its ability to operate in a wide range of temperatures ( - 20°C ~ +40°C) and the IP66 certificated water-resistant design means this flood light can also be used in nea rly all weather conditions.
Making the most out of LED technology, GlacialLight's GL-FL60 converts electricity to light with outstanding efficiency. Compared to equivalent mercury flood lights, this LED flood light co nsumes far less power for the same light output. The whole fixture of GL-FL60-WW delivers the luminous efficacy of 63 lumens per watt, and the GL-FL60-CW has a luminous efficacy of 72 lumens per watt.
The GL-FL60 is sold in two different versions with varying beam angles: 20° for spot light applications or 60° for flood light applications. The smaller 20° beam angle illuminates with a direct beam, and the wider 60° beam angle provides gentler lighting across a larger area. Upon request, GlacialLight can also fit this flood light for broader beam angles.
Two color temperatures are available. The GL-FL60-WW provides warm illumination at 3000K (Warm White) with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 85, while the GL-FL60-CW has a bright daylight-like 5700K (Cool White) beam and a CRI of 70. Both of the variants provide a power factor of 0.98 at 120V AC, and a power factor of 0.94 at 240V AC.
With the environment in mind, GlacialLight designed the GL-FL60 Flood Light to contain no hazardous chemicals, such as mercury, and to create no harmful radiation emissions such as UV or IR, making it more eco-friendly than traditional lighting. This AC input flood light series is also more economically friendly, consuming less power while providing more light than traditional lighting products.
