Classic Lumec ActiveLED® Retrofit for most Vintage Lumec Nostalgia exterior Luminaires, up to 40 Watt Retrofit replaces up to 300 Watt Metal Halide electronics

Provides a 21st century solution for "vintage" outdoor post-top style light fixtures with an energy efficient, high performance LED retrofit in 26, 30 or 40 Watt versions.

The U.S.-manufactured ActiveLED® Lumec Nostalgia 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 Nostalgia-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 (up to 300 Watt) 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 Nostalgia 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.

ActiveLED® Retrofit for Classic Lumec Nostalgia Space Requirements

The ActiveLED Retrofit for Lumec Nostalgia requires a minimal amount of space in the existing Lumec Luminaire, as follows:
