The Mach LED Plus replacement lighting fixtures can provide as much as 70 percent energy savings and can be connected via a common M12 plug connector.

Although the cost of electricity in the United States is low compared to other countries, U.S. manufacturers continue to look for ways to reduce energy consumption. Lighting is one area that they commonly target. However, savings can be realized by changing not only overhead facility lighting to more efficient units, but also equipment lighting fixtures.

For example, Waldmann Lighting Company recently introduced its newest industrial fixture, the Mach LED Plus, at IMTS. The company says this energy-efficient LED upgrade for traditional fluorescent tube luminaires can provide as much as 70 percent energy savings compared to luminaires with fluorescent lamps and also offer much longer service life.

A key design element is the system’s ease of installation. The Mach LED Plus adds LED technology to the same form, dimension and connection options of fluorescent tube luminaires being used in many of today’s industrial applications. The 2.75-inch diameter enables the use of existing brackets eliminating the need to drill additional holes (specially designed brackets are available for flexible adjustment of the luminaires). These units are available in six lengths ranging from 14 to 42 inches and can be connected via an M12 plug connector to either a low-voltage (24-volt) source or 100-, 120-, or 220/240-volt sources.
