VAILO, an Australian LED lighting manufacturer, has unveiled the new PC Amber variant of its flagship luminaire – the Zenith Gen-V. 

Designed to curb the disruptive effects of artificial lighting on wildlife, the Zenith Gen-V PC Amber minimises the LED lighting’s impact on wildlife behaviour and circadian rhythms. It also reduces attraction to insects while simultaneously meeting the illumination for human users. 

Phil McKenzie, engineering and production manager at VAILO, said PC Amber LEDs eliminate blue light while maintaining a broad spectrum of emitted light for effective outdoor area illumination for human use. 

The demand for LED lighting has seen a surge in recent years due to its energy efficiency and low maintenance in recent years. However, white LEDs can also significantly impact wild-life-sensitive areas, given their blue-rich spectrum. 

The new luminaire variant offers a different light source at 1000 watts but retains the features of VAILO’s Zenith Gen-V, including internally-wired components resistant to cockatoo interference, a tempered glass lens with UV protection, and an IK09 impact rating. 

Furthermore, the product features specialised optics, a lightweight design, and a powder-coated finish. 

Aaron Hickmann, CEO and founder of VAILO, said the company looks forward to rolling out the new product to provide a solution for areas needing high-performance lighting with sensitive ecosystems nearby. 

“As a proud Australian company manufacturing locally, we are always looking at new ways to develop our products for the Australian lifestyle,” Hickmann said.

“The Zenith Gen-V PC Amber is a high-performance floodlight suitable for sports fields, roads and tunnels, mining areas, airports and more. We look forward to seeing it installed across the country.”
