Excellent white light for safer public spaces

For comfort, safety and security the latest white light technologies can offer immediate energy savings on installation and a better respect for the environment. Shifting from dizzy, yellow HPS light to clear, crisp white light of CMH Streetwise™, this technology also promotes:


  • improved quality of light by changing from the current HPS lamp with a CRI=25 to the a white light lamp source StreetWise™ up to Ra=70+
  • the efficiency of HPS with the whiteness of metal halide, while delivering a broader spectrum than mercury
  • improved face/object recognition and better images for safety cameras
  • reduced light pollution
  • Due to enhanced visibility, drivers are able to respond to traffic changes more quickly.
CMH lighting delivers competitive levels of light, of higher quality, with lower energy consumption.

Dimmable ConstantColor CMH StreetWise lamps by GE for urban lighting

With high reliability and sustained lumen output across a longer working life of 24,000 hours, ConstantColor™ CMH StreetWise™ lamps are supremely cost effective. Also, they can be dimmed with negligible impact on performance, offering the potential for further energy savings. Dimming is suggested to 65% of power (except 50W on electromagnetic ballast), since the lumen maintenance and colour appearance may be substantially affected when dimming down to 50% of rated power.

  • dimmable CMH achieves lowest cost and most efficient white light
  • lower Watt CMH maintains white light at similar lumen and save the most energy
  • white light and lower energy at similar lumen output for same wattage
  • longer service life and lower maintenance costs
