Megaman launches new version of Dino 2 LED battens

Megaman has released its new generation of Dino LED battens, including Dino 2 Farm. The IP66 and IK04 rated luminaires feature a chemical-resistant body designed to withstand harsh locations and areas that have high levels of ammonia-containing gases. Ideal for farm locations such as pigsties and cowsheds, Dino 2 Farm is an efficient replacement for indoor and outdoor linear fluorescent T5 and T8 sealed battens.

Durable and robust, Dino 2 Farm offers a significant improvement to the original Dino 2 when installed in a horticultural environment due to its chemical-resistant body and IP66 ingress protection rating. The luminaire has also recently been tested and approved by the DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gessellschaft), the German Agricultural Society, for ammonia-resistance and cleaning distance.

Available with an opal diffuser and a colour temperature of 4000K, Dino 2 Farm battens are available in 4ft and 5ft lengths. The fixtures also come in 35W and 53W variants to provide between 4,300 lumens and 6,500 lumens, which are comparable to the lumen outputs achieved from traditional twin tube fittings.

Crucially, the battens are extremely energy efficient with a lamp life of 50,000 hours at L80 and efficacies of up to 123 lumens per watt. The luminaire is also backed by a five-year warranty.

Furthermore, Dino 2 Farm battens feature sliding stainless steel clips, which can be screwed into existing mounting holes, allowing the batten to be clipped into place. Tool-free terminal blocks and covers, plus cable entries and through wiring, ensure that cables can be wired from one fixture to another, helping to make Dino 2 Farm an ideal solution for sequenced lighting.

Glen Krise, managing director at Megaman UK, commented: “The original Dino 2 battens have previously been used in quite a few horticultural projects therefore the development of Dino 2 Farm was only natural.

“The team at Megaman have ensured that the body of this model is not only IP66 ingress protected and IK04 impact-resistant but is also chemically resistant against ammonia – a key issue in horticultural lighting.”
