High-bay fixture designed to replace HID lamps in clean rooms
May 28, 2019 – EarthTronics has developed a high-bay lighting fixture with Samsumg LED chips as an energy-efficient replacement for high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps in food processing and other clean-room applications, where wash-down and product safety are important.

The 150-W high-bay, which was recently featured at Lightfair International, is designed to shed water during cleaning and processing work. Dimmable, it reportedly delivers up to 19,500 lumens, suitable for 15- to 30-ft mounting heights in place of a 400-W HID lamp.
Intended for use in commercial cooking, agricultural and manufacturing facilities, the fixture is protected by a powdercoated cast aluminum alloy housing, providing durability against corrosion. It also features a shatterproof polycarbonate lens and can be cleaned with a high-pressure washer.
