DB* LED Luminaire PaLeStra A

Back to Overview

Model 881

Product Description and Application
The new patented PaLeStra A combines a modern appearance with the compact design of a slender whip mast luminaire. For its convincing performance this luminaire was rightly awarded a prize in the national competition "Communes In A New Light".
Equipped with state-of-the-art multi-chip-on-board technology (MCOB) and a service life of more than 100,000 hours, this convincing luminaire contains our entire lighting expertise. The luminaires are equipped with highly efficient LED modules with nominally 99 lm/W at
4,000 K.
The luminaire passed the pressure and dynamic pressure tests of the DEUTSCHES ZENTRUM FÜR LUFT- UND RAUMFAHRT (German Aerospace Centre).
The PaLeStra A is particularly suitable for track field lighting and the illumination of railway crossings.
Pay attention to the quality and efficacy of the product. Having an optimised luminous intensity distribution, the quantity of luminaires can be reduced due to larger luminaire spacing.
