ActiveLED® "Pachanga" Retrofit for Moldcast MDL Wall-Mount Luminaires - 8 or 14 Watt Retrofit replaces up to 100 Watt Metal Halide or 32 Watt Compact Fluorescent Bulb

Provides a 21st century solution for Moldcast MDL Wall or Ceiling Mount exterior light fixtures with an energy efficient, high performance 8 or 14 Watt LED retrofit engine

The U.S.-manufactured ActiveLED® Pachanga Retrofit is an innovative, self-contained LED light engine designed to easily replace the inefficient, high-wattage light bulb assembly in most existing Moldcast MDL wall or ceiling-mount fixtures, providing energy savings of 50-80 percent.

Public and private parking structures in business and residential neighborhoods, municipalities, universities and colleges use Lithonia Gateway style luminaires for sidewalks, walkways and public spaces. The Moldcast MDL fixture is approximately 11" by 12" and can be recessed, surface or ceiling mounted fixture. It has a die-cast aluminum housing and bezel designed to endure extreme environmental conditions and physical abuse and typically have either Metal Halide, HPS or compact fluorescent bulbs and ballasts that need regular maintenance.

The existing bulb electronics can be replaced with the low-wattage ActiveLED Pachanga engine and the Moldcast fixture still have the same "robust" characteristics. The only noticeable difference in its outward appearance is a better quality of light, which improves the safety value of its surroundings.
Ringdale’s patented LED technology also ensures a long life span of 90,000 hours (24/7 is 8,760 hours per year), lowering the bottom line when it comes to maintenance and operational costs.

The ActiveLED Pachanga Light Retrofit engine meets many commercial, residential and municipalities’ latest sustainability mandates for reducing energy usage.

The innovative design of the ActiveLED Pachanga Retrofit is fully dark sky compliant and delivers the maximum possible light to the surrounding public space while eliminating light trespass to adjacent properties.

Removing Existing Moldcast MDL Luminaire Bulb & Electronics Assembly

It is a very straightforward process to remove the existing Moldcast MDL luminaire electronics assembly in preparation for installing the ActiveLED Pachanga Retrofit, as described below.
Before starting any disassembly / assembly work, first disconnect the AC power from the Wall-Mount Luminaire.

Loosen the four screws that secure the bezel / faceplate to the fixture body, safely put to one side for reassembly.
Remove existing Bulb, Bulb Holder and Ballast Electronics from the body of the Luminaire by removing two or three machine screws (details may vary slightly based on the model of Luminaire).
Connect the AC cabling from the ActiveLED Pachanga retrofit to the AC line feed within the Moldcast fixture.
Carefully place the complete ActiveLED Retrofit assembly into the Luminaire and secure using the two or three existing machine screws.
Reconnect the AC power to verify that the installation is correct and the ActiveLED Retrofit is illuminated.
Reattach the bezel / faceplate to the body of the Luminaire.

The existing electronics assembly will need to be disposed of safely and in accordance with local regulations.

ActiveLED® Technology

Ringdale uses the latest in energy efficient LEDs and LED Modules producing equal or greater light output than current CFL or HID technology (Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium). Our state-of-the-art electronics monitor current and temperature of the LED substrate to assure maximum performance under the prevailing environmental conditions and a Lumen Lifetime of 90,000 hours (90% Luminous Flux).

ActiveLED® Warranties

We provide mechanically robust outdoor lighting systems; our warranties are 10 years on LED elements, fixtures and drivers / power supplies.

Ringdale is an ISO 9001:2015 company. Ringdale provides products of the highest quality designed and manufactured in Texas, USA and in the United Kingdom.

(1) Moldcast MDL Luminaire fixture, faceplate / bezel and wall mounting box are not included in the ActiveLED retrofit price.

(2a) Since existing lens (glass or polycarbonate) for the MDL fixture has probably been seriously degraded over time by UV light, the lens should be replaced at the same time as the ActiveLED Engine is installed.

(2b) Alternatively, Ringdale can provide an optional Faceplate Assembly at the time of ordering the retrofit, Faceplate Assembly priced and sold separately.

NOTE: Optional Replacement Faceplate c/w Lens part number 00-27-2711-Fplate, ordered separately.
