MaxLite presents the ARX Series LED X-Large Area Light as the 1000-watt retrofit solution for parking lots, campuses, automotive dealerships and large retail locations.Delivering energy efficiency in a design that mounts to existing poles,
The ARX area light weighs less than 20 pounds and has a effective projected area (EPA) of 0.95 square feet, enabling the luminaire to be mounted to incumbent lighting poles for a cost-effective retrofit process. With an output of approximately 29,000 lumens, the 250-watt LED ARX delivers efficacy of 114 lumens per watt, and 80 percent energy savings over the traditional 1000-watt metal halide lights it is designed to replace. High lumen output, Type V distribution and color rendering make ARX an option for showcasing vehicles in front row and back lot displays at automotive dealerships. At a 30-foot mounting height, the ARX symmetrically distributes light over a coverage area more than 60 feet in length.
Designed for durability and longevity, the ARX is engineered to perform in an operating temperature range of minus 40 degrees to 108 degrees Fahrenheit, and comes issued with 20kA surge suppression to guard the luminaire against electrical disturbances. The ARX is rated to a lumen maintenance period of 345,000 hours at L70 standards.
The ARX is available in a bronze finish standard or optional white finish, making it a high-output complement to QuadroMAX, MaxLite’s outdoor LED lighting system. Additional product options include 347-480V circuit compatibility. The ARX is dimmable using 0-10V controls, and can be combined with motion and daylight sensors for additional energy savings.
The ARX has earned DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Premium listing, qualifying the luminaire for utility rebate programs. Without rebates, return on investment for a retrofit project is estimated at less than two years based on 12-hour operation at the national electric rate ($0.1056/kWh).
