Beacon Aurora LED garage luminaire

April 24, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

Beacon’s Aurora employs a monolithic, integral heat-sink housing, which can mount flush to ceilings without supports. Horizontally opposed cast aluminum fins provides 5.9 sf of surface area to dissipate heat away from sensitive LED components. Fins are downward sloping to prevent sediment and moisture buildup on surfaces. Heat is not trapped with the luminaire; Beacon says this significantly reduces junction temperatures, maximizing LED light output and rated life. LEDs come in a choice of 32W, 40W, 48W and 80W in Cool, Neutral or Warm White. Dual circuitry allows individual switching for further energy savings during daylight, low occupancy or vacancy hours. LED drivers have over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and lightning protection as standard. Aurora has no special at-installation ventilation requirements. LEDs are sealed to IP65 standards inside a pull-out aluminum tray, behind a high-impact, thermo-formed acrylic lens. (Appeared EBMag May 2010, Products)
