Eaton Broadens Champ LED Portfolio with New Hi-Lumen Models to Provide
Safe, Reliable and Efficient Lighting Solutions for Harsh and Hazardous Areas
SYRACUSE, N.Y. Power management company Eaton has added four new hi-lumen
models to its award-winning line of Champ® LED (light-emitting diode) luminaires. The new
hi-lumen models, developed by Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds business, range from 13,000 to 25,000
lumens – 400W to 1000W high intensity discharge (HID) equivalents – and are designed for
mounting heights of up to 60 feet. Available in both hazardous area and ordinary location
versions, the hi-lumen fixtures provide a safe, long-lived, and energy-efficient option for areas
where continuous and consistent light levels are crucial. The luminaires are suitable for use
within oil and gas, mining, and other heavy industrial applications where vibration and
adverse environmental conditions are common.
“With more than 100 years of harsh and hazardous lighting expertise, we are confident in our
LED products and the benefits they provide to customers in the field, including quality of light
distribution, reduced maintenance costs, retrofit compatibility, energy savings and added
safety benefits,” said Anshuman Bhargava, LED product line manager, Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds
business. “With the launch of our hi-lumen models, we further enhance our already extensive
offering of lighting solutions designed to perform reliably in the harshest conditions.”
The Champ LED family is designed to transfer heat safely and reliably from the LED
assembly to the outside environment, resulting in low operating temperatures and sustained,
long term lighting performance. With a rated life of 60,000 hours at 55 degrees Celsius and
over 170,000 hours at 25 degrees Celsius, Champ LED luminaires help reduce maintenance

costs and ensure consistent, lighting in harsh and hazardous environments where safety of
assets and people are critical.
The Champ LED portfolio is compatible as a replacement for 175W to 1000W HID installed
bases. The Champ LEDs are available with Type I, III or V custom optics. These optics
maximize light distribution and intensity for different locations and applications. The entire line
of Champ LED luminaires is listed on the DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) Qualified Product
List (QPL), a leading resource that distinguishes quality, high-performing LED products for
commercial and industrial projects. In addition, the Champ LED range is globally certified for
use in both National Electrical Code® (NEC) and International Electrotechnical Commission
(IEC) code harsh and hazardous applications.
