The lighting installed at the newly expanded Newark International Airport is designed to meet an illumination criterion set at 2.5 footcandles, average maintained. A system of 100-ft poles with a luminare mounting height fo 100-ft poles with a luminaire mounting height of 100 ft is employed. In particlar, on each pole there are eight luminaires mounted on a lowering ring that is latched to the capping assembly at the top of the pole. The ring, with its luminaires, can be raised or lowered the full eight of the pole by means of a winch located inside the base of the mast. A total of 50 poles, each equipped with eight vertically mounted luminaires, is used. Each luminaire is equipped with 1000-watt metal-halide mercury lamps with an output of 90 lumens per watt.
