The high-performance LED lighting fixture is offered in 130-, 160-
and 200-watt models that replace up to 400-watt metal halide high bay fixtures
on universal voltage electrical systems. L70-rated above 65,000 hours, the
fixture offers a lifetime that is 2.5 times more than a traditional metal
halide fixture, enabling low- or no-maintenance costs. Additionally, by
swapping out just one 200-watt BayMAX LED High Bay Pendant, users can save
$1,981 in energy and maintenance costs over the lifetime of the fixtures, based
on a kilowatt-hour energy rate of $0.15. The fixture can be purchased with
rebates of up to $315 from select utilities nationwide.
The IP65-rated fixture is ideal for facilities with mounting heights
of 15 to 40 feet, including commercial buildings,
factories, warehouses, distribution centers, gymnasiums, auditoriums and
churches. Unlike metal halide systems, the LED fixture features instant-on
technology with no re-strike delay.
Advanced optic reflectors ensure uniform horizontal distribution,
while superior vertical light reduces glare and uniformly
spreads light across surfaces for improved visibility. Offered in gray
or white finishes, the fixture is constructed with a durable die cast aluminum
housing with a dacrotized coating that resists corrosion. Dual down-rod
mounting increases stability.
High-performance reflectors enable high lumen outputs approaching
16,000 on the highest wattage model. High-efficacy LED boards with a matched
patented thermal heat sink create optimal LED performance for HID retrofit
To maximize energy savings and ensure precise light levels, users can
pair the BayMAX LED High Bay Pendant with third-party building controls,
sensors and dimmers.
