The right lighting

 

Philips’ introduced SpeedStar, incorporating LEDGINE. The modular concept of LEDGINE within SpeedStar gives it complete flexibility to light a scheme to the exact requirement thereby maximising energy savings. This is especially useful when using existing spacings, as there is no need to over light, which sometimes is the case with step changes in HID lamp wattages.

 

LEDGINE has a range of five patented optics to give different lighting distributions. Using the SpeedStar LED choice and lightingdistributions, an optimum solution was found whereby the same luminaire can be used for the road and for the roundabout, but with different optics. The SpeedStar luminaire also included integral Dynadimmer, a pre-programmed ‘fit and forget’ multi level dimming module to further enhance the energy saving potential of the new lighting system, creating energy savings of 58% against the old SON scheme.
