The 304 Series from BetaLED, a division of Ruud Lighting, features performance of more than 100 lumens per watt, saving as much as 70% in energy use. Scalable up to 12,000 lumens of delivered light output, the luminaire series has a two-level dimming option, saving more energy and reducing operating costs. The 304 Series is available for recessed canopy and soffit applications with petroleum symmetric optics. The luminaires can be installed in single- or double-skin open-air petroleum station canopies and building soffits, such as banks and quick-serve restaurants. They are well suited for applications where lights are left on 24 hours a day. betaled.com
