Local OrangeTEK AriaLEDs
Currently, the only examples of the Voyager that I have seen in Derbyshire are on Fields Farm Road in Long Eaton. These were installed on new columns in September 2016 and replaced 8 m columns supporting (mostly) 90 W SOX lanterns.
As with their predecessors, the new columns are 8 m in height.
As part of the heat-sinking incorporated into this lantern's design (in order to lower the running temperature of the LEDs), a curved air gap is incorporated into the front of the lantern.
The lantern measures 621 mm (24.44 in) × 167 mm (6.57 in). 30 LEDs are arranged in an ordered grid in the front portion of the lantern. The information label towards the rear of the label looks interesting...
This close-up of the label tells us all that we would ever wish to know about the lantern - in operation, the 4000 K LEDs are driven at 700 mA, with a total power consumption of 66 W; however, there is a dimming regime incorporated into the LED driver - squinting at the right-hand side of the label reveals that the lantern runs at 100% operation from dusk until 21:30. From then until midnight, the output is reduced to 75% operation. Between midnight and 05:00, the output reduces again; this time, to 60%. The output increases back to 75% from then until 06:00. Finally, full brightness is returned after 06:00 until dawn. The Time Zone is described as "London", although, there is no mention of whether this is GMT, BST or both. The beam distribution on this example is described as 'NDE' - for narrow roads. Meanwhile, the address for 'OMA Lighting Co. Ltd' is given as the 11th Floor of 90 Xingde Road, in the Sanchong District of New Taipei City, Taiwan...or here, in other words! A far cry from the very rural Staffordshire base for OrangeTEK's UK office.
Further examples are seen after the bend is traversed.
SELC AcRo one-part 35 Lux photocells control the dusk-dawn operation of the lanterns.
