Marl is extending its reach into the street and flood lighting markets with the launch of what it believes is one of the worlds brightest and most efficient LEDs from Citizen.
Available in the UK from Marl, the new Citizen CL-L233 delivers an intense 1335 lumens of white light from 13W at a colour temperature of 5000K. CL-L233 delivers this light over a narrow 120 degree beam, eliminating the well known light pollution caused by most street lighting technologies which emit light over 360 degrees. The product provides a much more cost effective solution than existing LED products addressing this market. These normally feature arrays of 1W LEDs.
According to Marl, this powerful new solution extends the potential of LED technology in applications such as spotlights for stadiums and concerts, security and perimeter lighting, and street and industrial site illumination. Marls LED specialists will be developing LED assemblies based on the Citizen LED to address these market opportunities, providing a solution that delivers the best performance and fully protects the LED from the environment.
The packaging for the CL-L233 has been carefully developed to maximise the performance and efficiency of the product, and features a highly efficient heat release mechanism. The unit is 23mm x 17.5mm x 1.4mm and is designed for screw mounting to a heat sink. Citizen CL-L233 LEDs draw up to 720mA of forward current at a voltage of 18.6V.
