PEACHTREE CITY, Georgia – Hella Inc. has introduced the first LED floodlight designed specifically for the mining industry. Based on a proven expertise and success in developing advanced LED lighting technology, the new HELLA HypaLUME LED flood light is designed to withstand long periods of use in rigorous applications across an extreme temperature range from –40 °C to +50 °C with no decrease in light output.
This revolutionary LED flood lamp incorporates 56 high powered LEDs to produce an output of more than 20,000 lumens. The LEDs have a color temperature of 5700K, providing a near daylight environment and ensuring high color rendering. They are coupled with three specialized optical distributions to effectively meet all lighting application requirements.
The Hella HypaLUME’s LED driver electronics ensure that the light output remains stable over a wide range of voltage variations (18 to 52 V). Consuming a mere 240 W at 24 V DC, the lamp has a luminous efficacy close to 100 lumens per watt and provides a usable light level equivalent to a 400-W metal halide unit. It is available in three models: flood, close range, and long range illumination.
HypaLUME is protected from reverse polarity and short circuit faults, and sealed and tested to IP6K9K. A UV stable, high impact and chemical resistant, Grilamid lens protects the LEDs from environmental damage. The specially designed LED driver board, molded fins for heat dissipation, and LED alignment ensure advanced thermal management, drawing heat away from the LEDs to maintain the extended life guarantee of five years.
The HypaLUME LED lamp comes pre-wired with 1.8 metres of double insulated, marine grade cable. The LEDs are fully sealed and require no servicing. A variety of bracket options along with a wide range of aiming options are available, including a 50G mobile equipment bracket, a 15G fixed lighting bracket, and pole and cable suspension mounts.
Typical applications include excavators, shovels, crushers, blast-hole drill rigs, workshops, wash bays, separation plants, underground tunnels, loading bay, fixed light towers, warehouses, coal handling, processing plants, conveyor lines, and continuous miners.
