Baldwinsville The newest innovation in stadium lighting will be unveiled to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, March 9, in the Center of Progress Building at the New York State Fairgrounds, during move-in for the “Gater Racing News” Motorsports Show. Ephesus Technologies, an LED lighting innovation company based in Syracuse, which plans to expand to Radisson, has partnered with Central New York Raceway Park to unveil and demonstrate the world’s first LED stadium lighting solution.
“We are very pleased to partner with Ephesus Technologies,” said CNYRP President Glenn Donnelly. “I believe their (Ephesus Technologies) Raydeon Series LED stadium lighting will not only be revolutionary but will be the most cost efficient and practical option in today’s market.”
During the Friday press conference the world’s first racetrack/stadium LED lights will be on display for media and the general public. The stadium LED light is part of the Raydeon Series LED lights, which are manufactured in New York, and range in size from 800W to 2500W. The LED lights developed by Ephesus Technologies uses 70 percent less energy and will maintain a consistent lumen light output for more than 20 years. Designed on durability, the lights will endure extreme weather in any climate. The Raydeon Series LED qualifies for energy saving incentives. The most important features is that the Raydeon Series LED lights can be turned on/off instantly with dimming capabilities, unlike the Metal Halide bulbs that take 20 to 30 minutes to warm up and create a huge power surge causing a huge spike in electricity.
“The Raydeon Series LED is the best solution for any outdoor lighting application,” said Joe Casper, president of Ephesus Technologies. “Not only are they the most cost efficient lighting solution, but they designed to be dark sky compliant and allow areas to be lit more effectively. The dark sky features of our LED lights will eliminate light spillage into unwanted areas. This is an important consideration for nearby neighborhoods and roadways.”
