Fin-Shaped Outdoor LED Lighting from Cree

 
LED outdoor lighting

LED lighting company Cree has now developed some pretty unique-looking outdoor LED lamps. The Aeroblades™ series of luminaires debuted at Light+Building in Frankfurt last week. The lamps are based on Cree’s advanced BetaLED® Technology with superior NanoOptic® lighting control.

The Aeroblades series was developed in coordination with design firm Speirs + Major. Notably, despite the unique and somewhat ‘flashy’ design, form followed function for the design company.

“While everybody else was creating standard shoeboxes and other conventional designs, we were approached with a revolutionary technology that allowed us to throw out all preconceptions of how urban luminaires should appear,” said Keith Bradshaw, director, Speirs + Major. “The result is the Aeroblades luminaire, designed for the best LED performance and the form followed.”

Here’s more on the technology from a Cree news release: “The Aeroblades series boasts a unique modular design that allows the state-of-the-art light engine to bring unprecedented versatility and precision to outdoor applications. Aeroblades luminaires can be fine-tuned with NanoOptic technology optical control and the number of luminaire blades to meet specific illumination needs in smaller increments than either traditional designs or competitive LED products….

“Breakthrough engineering includes an innovative thermal management system that enables higher lumen output and provides significant boosts to lifetime, efficacy and color consistency. All luminaires have the option of 0-10V dimming, are designed to meet a minimum L70 (lumen maintenance) of 80,000 hours and feature a five-year warranty….

“Aeroblades luminaires will initially be available in more than 300 combinations, including: two, four or six blade versions, 20 optical distributions, four color temperatures (3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5700K), four drive currents, two pole mount and wall mount versions and seven DeltaGuard® paint finishes.”

Full availability is expected to begin in Q3 2012.
