ActiveLED® Classic Lumec Candela Retrofit for most Vintage Lumec Candela exterior Luminaires, up to 32 Watt Retrofit replaces up to 300 Watt bulb electronics

Provides a 21st century solution for "vintage" outdoor suspended style light fixtures with an energy efficient, high performance LED retrofit in 20, 26 or 32 Watt versions.

The U.S.-manufactured ActiveLED® Lumec Candela Light Retrofit is an innovative, self-contained LED light engine designed to easily replace the inefficient, high-wattage light bulb assembly in an existing Lumec Candela-style fixture, providing energy savings of 50-80 percent.

Many municipalities use post-top style lamplights for roadways, sidewalks and public spaces in historical and residential neighborhoods. Typically, these lights have large acrylic globes and cast aluminum bases that conceal inefficient Metal Halide light bulbs needing frequent replacement.

The existing lamplight can be retrofitted with the low-wattage ActiveLED light and still have the same “old town” characteristics. The only noticeable difference in its outward appearance is a better quality of light, which helps to improve the safety value of its surroundings. Ringdale’s patented LED technology also ensures a long life span of 90,000 hours, lowering the bottom line when it comes to maintenance and operational costs.

The ActiveLED Classic Lumec Candela light retrofit meets many municipalities’ latest sustainability mandates for reducing energy usage. For applications where lower light levels would be appropriate during periods of inactivity, the retrofitted lamplight can be interconnected with Ringdale’s own intelligent controller providing automatic dimming and on/off capabilities.

Installing the ActiveLED® Lumec Candela Retrofit Assembly

It is a very straightforward process to remove the existing Lumec "bowl" and electronics assembly in preparation for installing the ActiveLED Lumec Candela Retrofit:

Unplug all electrical connections before starting any work on the Luminaire.
Remove existing bowl and grid, put safely to one side as they will need to be reinstalled after the ActiveLED Lumec Candela Retrofit has been installed.
Identify the existing electronics assembly (bulb, socket, mounting plate, ballast assembly and mounting screws).
Remove the screws and put them safely to one side for use in the reassembly.
Remove the existing electronics and dispose of safely in accordance with local regulations.
Remove the existing bulb reflector (if installed) and carefully place the ActiveLED Candela Retrofit into the Luminaire, secure with four screws (provided), connect the AC supply line to the power supply (100 to 277 VAC) and reassemble the complete Luminaire using the original screws.
Apply AC power to verify that the ActiveLED Retrofit is working satisfactorily before replacing the existing bowl and grid.
