QME 2014 Preview: LED floodlights

Hella Mining Australia has announced their revolutionary HypaLUME LED Flood Light will be on display at the Queensland Mining & Engineering (QME) Exhibition, on stand A107, along with several other lighting solutions from Hella's extensive product range.

The HypaLUME LED Flood Light is an innovative high output lighting solution, specifically developed for the mining industry and related applications, which is suitable for both AC and DC applications and is designed to meet the rigorous operational demands of mine sites. By drawing on their award-winning technologies and materials of their mining LED work lights, Hella have built an economic LED floodlight solution that is suitable for a range of mining applications, where high output LED lighting is required.

Coupled with three specialised optical distributions, the HypaLUME's 56 high power LEDs produce more than 20,000 Lumens output. Additionally, the HypaLUME's LEDs have a colour temperature of 5700K, which provides a near daylight environment, to ensure high colour-rendering to assist with critical work tasks.

By consuming a mere 240W at 24VDC, the HypaLUME® offers a luminous efficacy of close to 100 Lumens per Watt, providing a lighting solution equivalent to a 400W metal halide light fitting, ensuring protection from reverse polarity and short circuit faults. The HypaLUME® LED also incorporates the following features:

  • A 120,000 hour LED lifespan – Reducing maintenance & replacement costs.
  • Is IP67 Compliant – Sealed and Tested.
  • Highly Efficient – Using half the power of a Metal Halide or Mercury Vapour lamp.
  • Intelligent Optics – Ensuring a uniform spread of light to prevent eye strain.
  • Superb Colour Rendering – To emulate daylight.
  • Instant Illumination – Requiring zero restrike time to achieve full brightness.
  • 250W Nominal Power Consumption.

The combination of a specifically designed LED driver board, molded fins for enhanced head dissipation and an LED alignment that offers advance thermal management, draws heat away from the LEDs to ensure the HypaLUME meets its lifetime guarantee and Hella Mining's industry leading 5 year LED warranty.

Designed to operate over an extreme temperature range of -40°C to +50°C, without any decrease in light output, the HypaLUME incorporates a Grilamid lens to protect the LEDs from environmental damage and provides a chemical resistant, high-impact and UV stable light.

A variety of bracket options for the HypaLUME LED Flood Light are available including: a Mobile Equipment Bracket, a Fixed Lighting Bracket and pole and cable suspension mount; which all feature a wide range of aiming options.

At QME 2014, Hella Mining will also be showcasing many other lighting solutions from their extensive product range including the AS5000 LED, HypaLUME LED High Bay, Power Beam 1000 and Power Beam 3000.
