DB* LED Catenary Luminaire Type E

Back to Overview

Model 386

Product Description and Application
The luminaire family of the E series is characterised by a timeless design and a luminaire body of high-quality, sturdy cast aluminium.
This LED luminaire is designed as catenary or pendant luminaire for the standard-compliant illumination of DB* roads, DB* intersections and DB* squares. Illumination of track fields is also possible. This luminaire has already been successfully installed in Niebüll and Ingolstadt.
The luminaire passed the pressure and dynamic pressure tests of the DEUTSCHES ZENTRUM FÜR LUFT- UND RAUMFAHRT (German Aerospace Centre).
The option of realising great mounting heights, due to its high luminosity, allows in particular glare-free applications and recommends this luminaire for many more lighting situations.

Pay attention to the quality and efficacy of the product. Having an optimised luminous intensity distribution, the quantity of luminaires can be reduced due to larger luminaire spacing. The luminaires are equipped with highly efficient LED modules – supplying nominally 99 lm/W at 4,000 K.
