CARA 87w Turtle LED Light LED, Lens, and Performance
The 87w LED array emits 2,607 lumens. The LED is custom engineered specifically for the fixture in order to optimize heat dissipation. It uses a 100% aluminum board with copper tracings to increase the fixture’s lifespan while minimizing lumen depreciation.
Electronic 1-10v dimmable drivers are standard on all of these fixtures and can be easily accessed. Control options include 3-pin photocell receptacle.
The lens is essential to the ingress protection; robotically applied gaskets create a consistent seal and assure the fixture achieves its IP66 rating. A high-quality glass lens is standard and provides maximum light output. Choose the prismatic lens option for a refractor-type effect that diffuses and distributes the light with minimal light loss.
