Amerlux Upgrades Hornet High Power A-14 LED Light Engine

Amerlux® has upgraded the performance of the reliable and efficient Hornet
HP A14 LED Engine. The company says that the update to Hornet HP-A14 LED offers
better lumen maintenance and more consistent color rendering compared to
available integrated LED lamps. Also the company increased the lifespan, and
enhanced control and dimmability. According to recent standard LM70 testing of
the 18-watt model at a 3000K CCT, the Hornet HP A-14 LED Light Engine with spot
distribution has greatly improved its the lumen output to 1369 and its lumens
per watt increased to 75lm/W (both 18 percent improvements). The CBCP also
increased 20 percent to more than 12,200 CBCP.

“The new and improved version of our Hornet HP LED offers impressive
value as it has been substantially upgraded with significant increases in
output, efficiencies and quality, without increasing price points,”

explained Chuck Campagna, CEO and President of Amerlux. “These technology
advancements will generate a substantial impact and incremental benefits on a
wide range of upcoming commercial projects. Our latest Hornet LED light engine
is the ideal solution that delivers energy saving lighting more efficiently
than its halogen and metal halide counterparts, as well as other LED
alternatives on the market today.”

L70 is rated at 50,000 hours, which is more than 10-15 times longer than
halogen and more than three times the life of 20-watt ceramic metal halide
fixture. This gives the light engine lower operating and maintenance costs with
greater energy savings and better lumen maintenance over its life.

The light engine uses LEDs tightly binned to 3 macAdam elipses to minimize
fixture to fixture color variations, the Hornet HP deploys CCTs ranging from
warm 2200K to cool 4000K and CRIs of up to 90-plus that provide consistent
beams free of striations projected heat, and UV/IR radiation, making it optimal
for lighting color or heat sensitive merchandise.
