Musco LED system featuring ams OSRAM LEDs illuminates Regensburg baseball stadium
Performance details have been unveiled for OSCONIQ LEDs made by ams OSRAM GmbH of Premstätten, Austria and Munich, Germany as part of a new field-of-play lighting system made by Musco Lighting of Oskaloosa, IA, USA installed at the Armin-Wolf-Arena baseball stadium in Regensburg, Germany.
The stadium’s new floodlighting uses the Total Light Control—TLC for LED system from Musco, fitted with OSCONIQ P 3737 LEDs from ams OSRAM, which provide the 5700K light source for the TLC for LED luminaires.
Selected as a host stadium for the 2023 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, the Armin-Wolf-Arena was required to upgrade its field-of-play lighting to meet lighting standards set forth by Major League Baseball (MLB).
The floodlighting has transformed the stadium, increasing lux levels by 85% on the field of play while reducing power consumption by 13% compared with the previous lights, according to Musco. The lighting is said to achieve extremely high consistency and uniformity across the field of play while producing low levels of glare, and very little spillover light outside the perimeter of the stadium.
The new system achieves MLB infield and outfield lighting requirements, and has enabled the Armin-Wolf-Arena to host matches at the highest level of world baseball, including this year’s World Baseball Classic Qualifier.
Musco’s TLC for LED technology has been installed at some of the biggest and most iconic professional stadiums in the world. Musco’s selection of the OSCONIQ P 3737 LEDs for its LED system came after an exhaustive evaluation of their performance in a demanding application mounted on top of a high mast.
The Armin-Wolf stadium in Regensburg is ‘home turf’ for ams OSRAM due to a “large, key manufacturing location,” says Peter Naegelein, the firm’s director product management OS IL. “The decision of Musco to choose the OSCONIQ P 3737 LEDs is a testament to the excellent design and reliability of the OSCONIQ LEDs and the outstanding quality of ams OSRAM’s LED manufacturing operations,” he adds.
