Albeo C-Series Solid-State High-Bay Luminaire Breaks the $50 per Kilo-Lumen Price Barrier at 79 Lumens per Watt

25,000 Lumens of Energy Efficient Lighting Without Maintenance or Mercury

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) - Albeo Technologies, a leading Solid-State Lighting (SSL) manufacturer, announces a breakthrough in white-LED lighting technology. Albeo's C-Series High-Bay has surpassed the next critical step in price and performance for large scale industrial-commercial deployment. ITL Laboratory independently verified to LM-79 standards Albeo's HB-B644-011C0-R5 performance: 25,650 lumens with an efficacy of 78.8 lm/W and power factor of 0.99 at 5000K CCT. The C-Series High-Bay has won both the DOE's 2008 NGL "market ready" award and Colorado's "2008 Sustainable Medal of Honor" award. Priced at better than $50 per kilo-lumen in quantities of 250 units or greater, the combined energy and maintenance savings enable customers to achieve pay-back in 1 to 3 years.

The C-Series white-LED general lighting platform is available in linear, dual linear, low bay, and high-bay configurations. Options include motion sensors, focusing and "batwing" optics, 120/240/270 VAC inputs, and 3K/4K/5K/6K color temperatures with CRIs ranging from 75 to 92. Applications include warehouses, garages, schools, manufacturing facilities, big-box retail outlets, cold-storage facilities, and other general lighting. Detailed specifications and IES files can be obtained at http://www.albeotech.com/products.html.

Built for reliability and lifetime, the C-Series High-Bay combines toroidal transformers (the most reliable power conversion technology) with Albeo's TEMPR™ thermal management system to minimize LED junction temperature and maximize lifetime, light output and efficiency. "Our best-in-class thermal, mechanical, electrical, and optical designs allow us to deliver well over 25,000 lumens with an efficacy of nearly 80 lm/W," says Paul Winker, Product Line Manager, Albeo Technologies. "Putting fluorescent or high intensity discharge bulbs in hard to reach places is unproductive now that our LED High-Bay fixture can outperform them."

Albeo will be featuring the C-Series High-Bay at Lightfair International, 2009, May 5th through 7th, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY, booth 1386. Other Albeo products shown include Atmosphere™ cove lighting, Brilliance™ display case lighting, and Talea™ Under-cabinet task lighting. Albeo's SecurityLED™ fixtures will also be on display. Constructed with heavy-gauge polyester coated steel and "unbreakable" polycarbonate lenses, Albeo's SecurityLED™ products are ideal for high-abuse applications such as transit, correctional, and institutional facilities. Details for the entire product line are available on Albeo's website at www.albeotech.com.
