The Intercept flood luminaire from Hubbell Outdoor Lighting solves issues negatively impacting sports venues, short lamp life and glare. Intercept is a LED solution for not only sports stadiums and entertainment arenas, but the general and security lighting of large commercial and industrial environments such as intermodal port, rail centers and airports.
Intercept establishes a benchmark for glare control with its use of low glare shield technology. Glare issues are a concern of large-scale floodlighting applications, and this is especially true for sports venues of all types, be it professional, amateur and even municipal recreation.
The LED optics of Intercept are recessed in a low-glare shield to ensure an ideal mix of optical accuracy, glare control and minimal spill light. The low glare shield on Intercept has been designed to minimally impact the performance. Competitive luminaries on the market that employ similar optical designs have to compensate for performance losses, which increases power, resulting in more energy costs for the customer.
Scalable LED modules allow for the Intercept to be optimized for each situation or application. Low glare shields are then used to ensure minimal negative impact on light output. This level of glare control reduces the candela per meter?2 outside of the beam by 92 percent while affecting the lumen output of the product by less than 10 percent. The result is a 37 percent reduction in the Glare Rating when compared to industry standards.
The end result is an enhanced experience for customers, patrons and sporting participants.
One of the advantages of LED luminaires is the inherent value in the longevity of the product. Intercept features a thermal management design that maximizes heat dissipation to increase the life of the luminaire. Built-in surge suppression adds an additional layer of protection for its driver, which can be integral or remote.
Intercept installs, operates and controls with ease. It features modular optical assemblies, which allow lumen output scalability. When 90,000 lumens aren’t needed to light the field or arena, it’s possible to reduce LED count to precisely optimize output. It also features a variety of NEMA Flood distributions, color temperatures and CRI options. The uniformity of the light is enabled by TIR optics to ensure Intercept helps sporting venues comply with any and all TV broadcast standards.
Control solutions, both wired and wireless, contribute to ease of operations. Intercept is capable of providing on/off control to a wireless scheduled system, and it features push button control, scheduling and theatrical control for dimming and effects.
