Dialight DuroSite® LED Conveyor Light Pays Back with Reduced Maintenance

CE compliant LED Conveyor Light designed with precision long-throw optics now available in 60W and 35W options

Farmingdale, NJ (July 1st, 2013) - Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced the immediate availability of a new style LED Conveyor Light. The fixture is designed specifically for use in harsh environments all too familiar in mining applications, where maintenance of thousands of light fittings installed on kilometres of conveyors and walkways across vast sites is an expensive and ongoing burden.

Carrying a five-year full performance warranty the CE compliant Dialight LED Conveyor Light is L70 rated for >100,000 hours representing minimal lumen depreciation over the life of the fitting. This rating far exceeds many other similar LED solutions and outperforms conventional sources by up to a factor of ten. Its robust construction means that it can withstand the constant shock and vibration commonly experienced in the mining environment, unlike HID fittings that need frequent maintenance and replacement. The IP66 sealed unit is resistant to water and dirt ingress, optimising the longevity of the product. With its clever mechanical design, installation is quick and simple with ingress protection being uncompromised during the installation process.

Designed from the ground up to accommodate Dialight's proprietary long-throw optics, the compact, low-maintenance DuroSite® LED Conveyor Light looks completely different from the traditional street light style fixtures it is intended to replace. Its wide angle optics enable optimised light spread whilst avoiding light spill and glare. With a choice of two wattages, the 35W version typically replaces 70W HID solutions for 9m spacing, while the 60W version enables spacing to be pushed out to 12m at the same time maintaining minimum light level and uniformity requirements.

The DuroSite LED Conveyor Light operates in ambient temperatures from -40°C to + 65°C, exceeding the upper temperature range of any rival, making it suitable for use in extreme environments. Mining installations can also benefit from its instant-on ability, eliminating the lengthy re-strike delays that are common with HID lighting systems.

Considering energy savings, eliminated maintenance and out-of-the-box installation, the Dialight DuroSite LED Conveyor Light will pay for itself many times over in its lifetime.
