Emerson High Bay LED Retrofit Lighting with Appleton Baymaster LED

Emerson Appleton Baymaster

While considering how to best go about replacing HID or fluorescent high bay lights with the more efficient LEDs, Emerson Electric realized that the process would be costly and difficult. Most high bay luminaires are heavy and located in hard-to-reach areas. Two or more people are often needed to perform the installations, which leads to increased labor costs, hence leading to a slower return on LED investment. The solution to all of this comes by way of the Emerson High Bay LED retrofit luminaire.

Featuring a patented Quick-Mount pendant system, the Appleton Baymaster provides a faster, safer and more cost-effective solution to retrofitting high bay LEDs to existing light mounts. The process requires one electrician to pre-wire the mounting hood, line the arrows up, and lock the Baymaster into place. This process seems as simple as the Go Green LED T8 Retrofit Bulbs Review we did back in 2016, however high bay LEDs will provide much more light.


Emerson High Bay LED Retrofit Quality

The secondary optics of the Baymaster shape the LED light to meet the needs of the application while eliminating dark spots or glare. The user is able to choose between aisle, narrow, medium, or wide beam spreads. These available options make it possible to cast light in challenging areas, such as aisles and walkways. The Appleton Baymaster has six lumen output levels (9,500K to 38,000K) as well as 5000K cool white or 3oooK CCT warm white color options.Emerson High Bay LED Retrofit Lighting

Emerson Baymaster Reliability

The Emerson Appleton Baymaster is constructed from copper-free aluminum, as well as being protected by an electrostatically-applied baked epoxy-clad finish. This uniform protection keeps the Baymaster resistant to corrosion, in addition to vibration, surges, thermal shock, and moisture. The Emerson High Bay LED retrofit comes rated for 84,000 hours of luminaire life but can exceed 200,000 hours depending on ambient temperatures. It turns on instantly and is impervious to cold startup and premature failure due to frequent on-off cycling. The luminaire’s enclosed and gasketed design accommodates safe usage in areas that might contain flammable gases. Dirt, dust, severe weather conditions, and high temperatures will also not affect performance.

The Lower Cost Of the Baymaster

By reducing energy costs by around 65%, as well as significantly lowering the maintenance costs of lamp replacements, Emerson believes that a company can break even on its lighting solutions quickly by retrofitting traditional HID high bays with their Baymaster LED luminaires. The Emerson Appleton Baymaster LED luminaires deliver far greater lighting efficiency when compared to traditional lighting sources, including fluorescents, than previous efficiency leaders.

The Emerson Appleton Baymaster LED comes with a standard 5-year warranty, which can be extended to 10 years when the luminaire is equipped with secondary optics and 10kVsurge protection. Emerson also makes a wide range of accessories for this lighting system, including a safety cable, guard, Y mount cable assembly, and drain assembly.


Final Thoughts

The Emerson High Bay LED retrofit system could be a great solution to your shop lighting needs. It has a wide ambient temperature range, which makes it a reliable lighting solution for just about any climate. It also seems durable and well constructed, and with an optional 10-Year warranty, you shouldn’t have to worry about malfunctions for a long time.
The Quick Mount system that Emerson has come up with here is another big positive, but all of the lighting options make the Baymaster stand out. It has a large output range and a couple nice color options. The secondary optics make this a highly customizable lighting solution. Because of the variety of beam spreads, hard-to-light areas like aisleways become easier to manage.
Emerson designed the Baymaster to withstand the hazards of dangerous work environments, like dust, high temperatures, corrosion, and flammable gases. Because of this, as well as all the reduced costs of LED lighting and installation, the Emerson Appleton Baymaster LED could be a cost effective and reliable lighting solution for power plants, chemical plants, refineries, foundries, and wastewater treatment centers.
