Retrofitting HID floodlights with new Areamaster Generation 2 LED floodlights from Appleton (Rosemont, IL) could save companies up to 75% on energy costs, according to the company, while virtually eliminating maintenance burdens and improving worker productivity by providing uniform, high quality light. Additional features include:

  • A wider selection of beam patterns and color temperatures.
  • Lumen outputs ranging from 9,000 to 38,000 lumens.
  • The ability to retrofit existing HID floods from 250W to 1500W. 
  • The same slip fitters and pole brackets as older Appleton HID floodlights.
  • A gasketed front wiring compartment.
  • Up to 10kV surge suppression for installations in Category C high-risk areas.
  • High-temp silicone gaskets that prevent water ingress and corrosion. 
  • A patented thermal design for cool operation. 
  • An operational "on" time exceeding 60,000 hours — 200,000 hours in optimal conditions. 
  • Replaceable LED drivers that can extend luminaire life even beyond 60,000 hours. 
  • An operating temperature range from -40°C to +65°C (-40°F to 149°F). 
  • Optional choice of either cooler 5000K or warmer 3000K color temperatures, as well as secondary optic options for NEMA 7x7, NEMA 7x6 (HID like) and NEMA 5x5 light distribution patterns 
  • Lumen outputs available for 120-277VAC or 347-480VAC.
  • A copperfree aluminum diecast housing with architectural bronze polyester powder coat finish for corrosion resistance. 
  • Certified for Class I Division 2 and Class II hazardous locations.
  • Rated for use in NEC/CEC installations.
