HOUSING / OPTICS: Die cast and extruded aluminum housing available in bronze powder coat finish utilizes linear heat dissipating fins for superior cooling and durability. Housing has K0s on top and bottom for photocell or motion sensors. Hinged door, secured by two allen head screws, provides quick access to gasketed wiring compartment. Separated optical and eletrical compartments for cooler operation and maximum system life. LED modules are enclosed via gasketed, UV-stabilized polycarbonate precision lenses, available in NEMA Type II, III, IV, and V distributions. Available with factory-installed optional backlight shielding for 85% backlight reduction. The full cut-off SAL series produces no uplight and is  nighttime friendly.

LEDs: SAL area lights utilize 32, 48, 64, or 96 high power NICHIA LEDs on conformal coated metal core boards, and are 5-step binned for color consistency. SAL is available in 4 sizes and light levels (delivered):  SALXS: 9,060 lumens (32 LEDs, 73W); SALS: 13,600 lumens (48 LEDs, 107W); SALM: 17,800 lumens (64 LEDs, 140W); SALL: 23,500 lumens (96 LEDs, 188W). 5000K 70 CRI (standard). Also available in 3000K and 4000K 70 CRI. Consult factory for lead time. Operating life is up to 60,000 hours (L70). LEDs are LM-80 tested.

ELECTRICAL: Power supplies are 120-277V (U1) or 347-480V (U3), 0-10V dimmable. Power factor is >0.9. Power supplies are mounted in direct contact with aluminum housing for cooler operation and longer life. 73W units use 1400mA PSU. 107W units use 2100mA PSU. 140W units use 2800mA PSU. 188W units use 4200mA PSU. 6kV integral surge protection. Additonal 10kV inline field-replaceable surge protector (included).
temperature The SAL series is suitable for use in operating temperatures from -31˚F (-35˚C) to 104˚F (40˚C).

ACCESS / WIRING: Power supplies are located in a separate compartment accessed via (2) captive 1/8” allen head screws. Top and bottom KOs provided for optional twist-lock photocell and multi-level motion sensors with built-in photocell.

MOUNTING: Multiple mounting accessories are available for the SAL for pole or wall mounting. Mounting accessories are sold separately. The recommended mounting heights are SALXS 10-15 ft., SALS 15-20 ft., SALM 20-25 ft., and SALL 25-35 ft. The SAL series supports wider pole spacings of 8.5 times mounting heights.

The Effective Projected Area (EPA) for the SAL fixtures mounted in a horizontal area light orientation using the square pole mount accessory is SALXS .55 sq. ft., SALS .62 sq. ft., SALM .67 sq. ft and SALL .79 sq. ft. The Effective Projected Area (EPA) for the SAL fixtures mounted  in an angled floodlight orientation using the adjustable slip fitter is SALXS 1.27 sq. ft., SALS 1.42 sq. ft., SALM 1.56 sq. ft and SALL 1.85 sq. ft. Product Weight: SALXS (11lbs), SALS (12.9lbs), SALM (13.8lbs) and SALL (17.5lbs).
