I notice that Medway Council have started using the Sapphire model. The old Eleco 'Way' HW895 models have gone. The change of light the Sapphire emits takes a bit of getting used too.
Medway have all sorts of lamp posts and lights. What is the reason for replacing the Eleco's?
Probably Medway council phasing out Mercury - mostly gone now - The Sapphire with CFL or Cosmo white replaced many of the old Eleco lanterns.
The issue I noticed is that although the output is brighter - the downwards projection of the light means that in certain areas there are noticeable dark areas between streetlight placings which weren't so bad with Eleco installations
Medway have started equipping the Sapphires on new installations with LED elements, they seem to be two densley packed squares of LED's aranged one infront of the other, with a cold white light output!! Makes the CFL and cosmo whites look almost yellow in comparison!!
