MaxLite® adds new 0-10 volt dimmable BayMAX™ LED Linear High Bay Fixtures to the DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL), joining the A/B bi-level models already on the list. The 110-, 160- and 250-watt LED fixtures are designed to replace T8 and T5 fluorescent fixtures and up to 450-watt pulse-start metal halide high bay fixtures while improving lighting quality and reducing energy and maintenance costs. The fixtures can be purchased with rebates of up to $315 available through select utility rebate programs nationwide. The BayMAX LED fixtures deliver uniform-wide general light distribution in manufacturing and warehousing facilities, big box retailers, indoor recreational and sports complexes, commercial farm buildings, civic centers, health clubs, workshops, dockyards, tollbooths, houses of worship, distribution centers, and other facilities that require high mounting ceiling heights of 15 to 40 feet.
The high bays are assembled in MaxLite’s New Jersey facility, and are added to the company’s lineup of United States-assembled lighting fixtures that comply with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). “Our dimmable BayMAX LED Linear High Bay Fixtures are engineered for high performance and adjustable light levels in a broad range of industrial and commercial high-ceiling environments to minimize life cycle maintenance costs,” said MaxLite’s Vice President of Product Marketing Pat Treadway. “While our A/B versions support integration with early A/B control systems, these next versions support most 0-10 volt dimming and occupancy control components.”The LED linear high bays are designed with a low-profile rectangular housing that feature engineered LED strips populated with LM-80-tested LEDs. The 250-watt model replaces up to a 450-watt pulse start metal halide high bay fixture with deliverable lumens up to about 22,000.
The 160-watt LED model is equivalent up to a 400-watt fixture with more than 16,000-plus deliverable lumens, while the 110-watt model with 11,000-plus lumens retrofits up to a 250-watt metal halide high bay fixture. If just one 250-watt metal halide was replaced with a 110-watt model, the user would see an energy and maintenance savings of $1,457 throughout the fixture life, based on a kilowatt hour energy rate of $0.15. High-efficacy LED boards with dual copper cladding feature cool-operating thermal and lumen balanced light engines that outperform harder-driven, hotter LEDs, maximizing energy savings, lumen output, fixture life and quality of light. Solidly constructed of 22-gauge, cold-roll steel housing for superior thermal management and durability, the linear high bay fixtures operate on universal 120- to 277-volt electrical systems. A specular reflector controls light distribution and maximizes output. A topside access door provides convenient driver serviceability.
