Integrated DALI control gear

Integrated DALI 2.0 control gear provides out-of-the-box compatibility with the DALI standard for lighting control. Fully compliant and listed on the DALI website, the internal constant current driver is further IP sealed for even greater protection and enhanced thermal performance.

Optical Performance

With multiple optical options, the AQL-880 is suitable for a wide range of lighting design applications. High-efficiency reflectors with good glare control deliver the maximum in both target illuminance levels as well as wall-plug efficacy, well above 100lpw. For premium glare control and improved visual comfort, low glare (UGR < 19) options are available. Additional asymmetric and premium TIR hybrid optical solutions are in development and coming soon. Please contact us for custom optical requests. 

Dynamic, enduring illumination

Based on the CREE CMT platform, the AQL-880 is configurable with a multitude of CCT, CRI and output options including our own RGBW solution featuring Wireless DMX control. Standard options include 2700K, 3000K, 4000K CCT with 90+ CRI. Premium options including Fidelity CRI 98+, TM-30 (Rg99) and 2200K are available. Full LM-80 reports are available demonstrating TM-21 performance of L70(12k) > 66,000hrs. 

Installation Ease

Italian-made push-in terminal blocks greatly simplify installation, with the control gear assembly remaining inside the fitting for most installation scenarios. Loop-through space is available and a robust gasket solution for the surface mount plate provides IP65+ performance when installed on a flat surface. 

SHIELD5 Powder coat finishing

Dulux Electro Powdercoat provides a range of body finish options. With a super durable polyester powder coat, designed to last in extreme Australian conditions. Combined with our state-of-the-art pre-treatment line and aerospace-grade passivation, Aqualux luminaire finishing is industry-leading protection for ultra-long-lasting protection in urban, rural and coastal landscape environments.
