Evolve LED Roadway Fixtures First Generation


Evolve LED Roadway Fixtures – First Generation

The Evolve® LED Roadway Luminaire is optimized for customers requiring a LED solution for local, collector and major roadways. GE's unique reflective optics are designed to optimize application efficiency and minimize glare. The modern design incorporates the heat sink directly into the unit for heat transfer to prolong LED life. This reliable unit has a 100,000 hour rated life, significantly reducing maintenance needs and expense over the life of the fixture. This efficient solution lowers energy consumption compared to traditional HID fixture for additional operating cost savings.

PRODUCT REPLACEMENT: The ERS Series of Evolve LED Roadway Fixtures has been discontinued and has been replaced by The ERL Series. For more information please refer to the ERL Cobra Head Product page.
