Lighting Science Group Corporation Launches New Avenue Series
May 20 15
Lighting Science Group Corporation officially unveiled its AVENUE Series of LED roadway solutions during Lightfair 2015 to tremendous excitement and interest. AVENUE is the culmination of research and development efforts to revolutionize the infrastructure market and take roadway lighting to the next level. It currently contains two highly anticipated, next-generation products that are leading the way in their markets. Created to address the unique lighting needs of rural and remote communities with limited access to the electric grid, the FreeLED high efficiency luminaire system is a reliable, affordable and sustainable roadway illumination platform utilizing solar energy as its primary power source. The Mini street light possesses a smart, minimalist design that saves on lifecycle implementation costs from materials to installation and energy making it a low-maintenance, cost-effective LED solution. These advanced roadway lighting solutions will deliver big impacts in the infrastructure market. FreeLED is poised to take reliable and sustainable LED lighting to remote or off-grid locations that have traditionally suffered with limited options for affordable illumination. FreeLED patented technology includes dusk to dawn dimming, up to a three days discharge based on the selected profile, automatic battery cell balancing and the ability to withstand wind gusts up to 150 ph per AASHTO 2001 guidelines. The Mini was designed for customers looking for an affordable, energy efficient and optically superior LED street light system. Engineered for ease of installation, especially in locations that often lack stable, extensive or affordable infrastructure, its sleek design provides easy installation and reduced energy consumption. Compared to a traditional roadway fixture, the Mini is 22% more energy efficient, while using 75% less material. It has a built in photo-sensor for automatic on/off functionality and provides better quality light.

In addition to The Rhythm Series, a number of other new products will also be featured that reflect significant advances in design, energy efficiency, and functionality. Among these are: The Marquee Series – warm, nostalgic looking LED filament lamps that give the look of a traditional incandescent lamp with the energy savings of an LED. The Avenue Series – its revolutionary new Mini™ and FreeLED™ roadway systems that take infrastructure lighting to a whole new level. Visitors to Lighting Science’s Light Fair booth will also be given the opportunity to hear firsthand from Company executives about initiatives, as well as meet some of the world’s top scientific experts who are leading the fusion between health and lighting. As an added incentive, Lighting Science is offering special promotions to its Light Fair booth visitors and online customers.
