LED street lighting

Spelsberg UK has launched a range of enclosures designed specifically for use with LED lighting control electronics found in the latest generation of exterior and street lighting systems. The simple, modular enclosures are designed to make it easy for installers to protect the lighting control PCB - providing easy cable entry, mounting and termination options in a semi-transparent polycarbonate enclosure that allows for easy inspection during and after installation.

LED street lighting

Street lighting technologies, such as LEDs, emit a white light that provides high levels of scotopic lumens allowing street lights with lower wattages and lower photopic lumens to replace existing street lights. As well as the type of light emitted, LEDs have a number of other advantages; they require very little voltage and have an extremely long operational life and are cheap to replace which means that they are extremely cost efficient as well as providing superior lighting.

However, LEDs require a larger range of control electronics which means that a far larger PCB is needed to run an LED powered street lamp that would be found on a traditional lamp. This can make installation awkward as a larger enclosure is needed which can be bulky and hard to specify to the correct dimensions. Fortunately Spelsberg has developed a solution that allows for simple installation, and quick inspection, for PCBs used in LED lighting applications.

The lighting enclosures from Spelsberg are a modular design which means that installers can easily house PCBs of varying length within them without having to specify a number of different sizes. There is an option of module lengths: 220mm, 420mm and 620mm; each module has a 67mm diameter meaning they are interchangeable and can easily be stored within most common streetlamps.

The enclosures are constructed using a semi-transparent polycarbonate material which is halogen free; ventilation sockets have been designed to allow heat dissipation by air circulation whilst still maintaining IP32 ingress protection when installed vertically. Various accessories are available including ventilation plugs and external fastening screws.
