Local Thorn Gamma LEDs
Following the rise in popularity of LED lanterns on UK streets in the mid-2010s onwards, Thorn launched their Gamma LED lantern as an option for use in locations where the more concentrated beam of a standard LED lantern would be undesirable - for instance, at locations requiring 'area' lighting, such as precincts. In Derbyshire, the Gamma LED saw occasional use on cul-de-sacs where the end of the road continued past the position of the last column, where a dark patch would be created without such a lantern being used.
This Gamma LED in Dronfield is fitted to a column that is installed in the middle of a small island near the end of a cul-de-sac; the 360 degree optic being a necessity, in order to provide light around the island.
Not visible from ground level is the miniature photocell situated in the middle of the lantern's canopy.
Two separate LED clusters are located either side of the central spigot assembly.
The two clusters comprise twelve LEDs each; the total power consumption of the lantern being 53 W.
