StreetLight #293

Parking-lot lighting in a shopping center.
The LED things were recently added, guess at this point that means the HID's will be staying...atleast for awhile.


Location:
Wadsworth & Cross (near BigLots store)

Wow those LED floods are tiny! But then again that 1000W MH shoe box is a monster! Basically a high bay light inside a metal case. Laughing

Yep.. they don't really fit in there Laughing

How can you tell the shoe box is 1000w ? I didn't see any sorta label/tag.

Those large shoeboxes are usually 1KW.

Update:
Was in this shopping center tonight...
Those things are glare-bombs the way they have them set up, especially the one that points towards the little road entering the parkinglot.

The arc tube looks like it's 1000W based on the size and comparing to the photocells/shorting caps on the LED floods. A twist-lock PC is roughly 3" in diameter just to put the shoe box into perspective. Shocked That thing is basically a 2x2 troffer on a pole. Laughing

Yeah, you don't realize what beasts the fixtures are until you see one off the pole Laughing

But WHY do they need these additional lights? Confused
Is the "shoebox" so much directional?
1000W MH should be more than enough!

@merc:
I have no idea, it was fine without them!
Actually if anything these make it worse, especially the glare-bomb pointed right in your face at the entrance to the lot Confused

These round-reflector vertical lamp shoeboxes are pretty uniform at lighting the lot, especially with the round sag lens. I can't imagine these floods contributing much. These shoeboxes basically throw a giant circle of light all over the place. The horizontal lamp ones are more controlled/directional.

Update:
The shoeboxes were replaced with LED fixtures last year.
