Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. (June 3, 2014) – Reinforcing its leadership position in the solid state lighting industry, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is showcasing at LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) 2014 the first to market ProPoint® Raceway LED Tunnel Lighting System, a complete LED solution that provides uniform, linear, low glare illumination for continuous end-to-end or spaced connection.  Available in 4.5 and 9-foot versions, the long-life raceway system comes assembled with integral electrical components and attached luminaires, minimizing installation labor time and costs.

According to the recent Navigant Research report “Outdoor and Parking Lighting Systems,” worldwide shipments of LED luminaires for outdoor and parking applications are forecasted to grow from 4.1 million annually in 2014 to nearly 14 million in 2023.

The new raceway LED lighting system, in addition to other innovative lighting technologies from OSRAM SYLVANIA, will be shown at Booth #3108 at LFI 2014, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.  LFI 2014 is sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD).  OSRAM SYLVANIA has been supporting LFI since its inception 25 years ago, bringing fully integrated lighting products and services that take lighting designers, end users, luminaire manufacturers and service providers beyond the boundaries of conventional lighting.

“The ProPoint Raceway LED Tunnel Lighting System is a breakthrough for existing or new tunnel and underpass applications with demanding environments because of its diffuse,  uniform, low glare  light and the thoughtfully designed, rugged raceway mounting system that makes installation and maintenance relatively hassle-free,” said Paula Ziegenbein, head of application business development, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  

Assembled in the United States, the ProPoint Raceway Lighting System uses up to 45% less energy than traditional high intensity discharge (HID) lighting systems and bi-level dimmable down to 50% for additional energy savings.  The aesthetically appealing lighting system utilizes the OSRAM ProPoint Industrial Linear luminaire which has an efficacy of 82 lumens per watt (LPW) and a life rating of 50,000 hours (L70), offering significant maintenance cost avoidance over traditional lighting options.  The 200W 4.5-foot version delivers 16,400 lumens, and the 400W 9-foot version delivers 32,800 lumens. 

Covered by the standard OSRAM 5-year luminaire warranty, the system is UL1598 listed for wet locations, IP66-rated as a complete system, resistant to high pressure hose down, and made with a corrosive-resistant Type 3, Class 1 hard anodized aluminum alloy.  It is also designed with integral 10kV surge suppression and internal fusing, a diffuse remote phosphor lens with lambertian distribution, and the ability to connect and power other lighting and electrical needs.
