The Intercept solves the most prevalent issues negatively impacting sports venues today: short lamp life and glare. It establishes a new benchmark for glare control with its innovative use of low glare shield technology. The LED optics of Intercept are strategically recessed in a low-glare shield to ensure an ideal mix of optical accuracy, glare control and minimal spill light. The low glare shield on Intercept is unique, having been designed so it would minimally impact the performance. Competitive luminaries on the market that employ similar optical designs have to compensate for performance losses, which increases power, resulting in higher energy costs for the customer. Scalable LED modules allow for the Intercept to be optimized for each situation or application. Unique low glare shields are then used to ensure minimal negative impact on light output. This level of glare control reduces the candela per meter?2 outside of the beam by 92 percent while affecting the lumen output of the product by less than 10 percent. The result is a 37 percent reduction in the Glare Rating when compared to current industry standards. The end result is an enhanced experience for customers, patrons and sporting participants. Additionally, one of the primary advantages of LED luminaires is the inherent value in the longevity of the product. Intercept features a dynamic thermal management design that maximizes heat dissipation to increase the life of the luminaire. Built-in surge suppression adds an additional layer of protection for the Intercept’s driver, which can be integral or remote. It features modular optical assemblies, which allow lumen output scalability. When 90,000 lumens aren’t needed to light the field or arena, it’s possible to reduce LED count to precisely optimize output. It also features a variety of NEMA Flood distributions, color temperatures and CRI options. The uniformity of the light is enabled by precision TIR optics to ensure Intercept helps sporting venues comply with any and all TV broadcast standards. Flexible control solutions, both wired and wireless, contribute to ease of operations. Intercept is capable of providing on/off control to a wireless, fully scheduled system, and it features push button control, scheduling and theatrical control for dimming and effects.
