Groundbreaking Performance from New BetaLED® Area Luminaire
BetaLED SLM® IP66 luminaires exceed lighting expectations with unparalleled longevity

Sturtevant, Wis., May 17, 2011— BetaLED, a division of Ruud Lighting, Inc., introduces BetaLED SLM IP66 area luminaires with a distinctive, slim, low-profile that offers architectural character for exterior applications. The combination of a unique modular design with light bar scalability and patented NanoOptic® technology contributes to the exceptional efficiency of this architectural grade luminaire. Named for its ingress protection rating of 66, the BetaLED SLM IP66 luminaires protect against intrusion of environmental elements and are ideal for all pole or wall-mounted area lighting applications. Exceeding lighting expectations with unparalleled longevity, the luminaires provide better than 85 percent predicted lumen maintenance at 50,000 hours at 25o C.

“The design of the BetaLED SLM IP66 follows our hallmark approach of comprehensive engineering from the ground up – our patented optical design incorporates the latest LED chip technology, maximizing target lighting performance and reduced total cost of ownership in a variety of applications,” said Christopher Ruud, president of Ruud Lighting, Inc.

BetaLED will showcase BetaLED SLM IP66 luminaires at LIGHTFAIR® International, May 17-19, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia – Booth # 2709.
