HOUSING / OPTICS: Heavy duty, contoured, die cast aluminum housing available in bronze powder coat finish. Utilizes extra deep linear heat dissipating fins (1.5” to 3” deep) for superior cooling and durability. Housing has K0s on top and bottom for twist lock photocell or integrated motion sensor with built in photocell. Tethered door secured by four Allen head screws provides quick access to wiring compartment. Separate optical and electrical compartments for cooler operation and maximum system life. LED modules are enclosed via gasketed, UV-stabilized polycarbonate precision lenses, available in NEMA Type III, IV, and V distributions. Available with factory-installed optional backlight shielding for 85% backlight reduction. The full cut-off SALHO series produces no uplight and is Dark Sky friendly.
LEDs: SALHO area luminaire utilizes 84 high power CREE XPL LEDs on conformal coated metal core boards. LEDs are 5-step binned for color consistency. SALHO is available in one size and light level (delivered): SALHO2XL: 50,618 lumens (465W), >70 CRI. 5000K (standard); consult factory for 3000K and 4000K, lead times may apply. Operating life is 100,000 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. 465W fixture uses 3.33A power supply. Power supplies are mounted in direct contact with aluminum housing for cooler operation and longer life. 6kV integral surge protection and additional 10kV inline field-replaceable surge protector (included).
TEMPERATURE: The SALHO Series is suitable for use in operating temperatures from -31˚F (-35˚C) to 104˚F (40˚C).
ACCESS / WIRING: Power supply is located in a separate compartment accessed via (4) 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 SALHO for pole mounting. Mounting accessories are sold separately. The recommended mounting height for the SALHO2XL is 35 ft to 60 ft. with wider pole spacings of up to 8.5 times mounting height. The EPA for the SALHO2XL is 1.22 sq. ft. when used in horizontal area light orientation with the square pole mount accessory. The EPA is 4.66 sq. ft. when used in the floodlight orientation with the adjustable slip fitter. The SALHO2XL weighs 48 lbs.
