Infranor™

Polaris-12
Polaris, or the pole star, lies less than one degree
from the north celestial pole and has served as a
stellar beacon leading explorers and navigators to
their destination since the beginning of time.
Similarly, Infranor has been, and continues to be, a
leader in the manufacture of performance flood-
lighting products. The Infranor Polaris-12 continues
this leadership by offering proven reflector technologies
in a new architectural shape. Everything from 100W to
175W in the Polaris-6 and from 250W to 1000W in the
Polaris-12 is now available in one architectural family.

The Infranor Polaris-12 includes the patented Arc


Stream Aligner (pat. # 5,111,371), which allows for
rotation of the lamp while repositioning the arc stream
itself in the optical design center. This increases
luminaire efficiency and optimizes optical performance
while decreasing unwanted spill light.

Like all Infranor products, the Polaris-12 boasts a wide variety


of precision rectangular beam patterns to fit all of the
rectangular elements in our world. No other company has
developed as wide an array of precision optical systems to
eliminate the shadows left by conventional floodlighting products.

Every Infranor Polaris-12 precision flood luminaire meets or


exceeds the stringent requirements set forth by UL for wet location
use and carries the cULus label. All luminaires are fully tested prior
to shipment and backed by the protection of a full Sterner/Infranor
warranty.

Sterner Lighting, through its exclusive Infranor brand, has been


manufacturing premier and custom floodlighting products for over 35
years. Infranor is recognized worldwide as the leader and innovator in
floodlighting products. The Polaris-12 series continues this time-
honored tradition.

DESIGN FORM
An aesthetically pleasing shape helps to accentuate the
surrounding architecture and makes this product ideal for
monument, sign, and facade lighting. Our precision die-cast
methods allow for sharp distinctive lines and eliminate the need
for most external fasteners. The efficient design (18.00" W x 15.41"
H x 12.33" D) includes integral heat sink fins for cooler operation
and longer component life and will operate lamps up to 400W
with an integral ballast and up to 1000W with a remote ballast.

MOUNTING
Heavy Duty Swivel:
40˚
As a standard feature the Polaris-12 includes the most robust, die-
cast swivel available in the market today. Regardless of mounting 140˚

scheme, the innovative swivel design allows for infinite fixture


adjustment throughout its aiming angles ensuring a clean, precise
lighting design. Further, the heavy duty swivel contains an oversize
wiring compartment for easy installation and eliminates the need
for an additional junction box. The Polaris-12 can be conveniently
mounted to walls, post tops, base pads, or stanchions. Swivel Fixture Aiming Range
(Shown with optional base pad)

Yoke: 160˚

Also available as a yoke mount, the Polaris-12 can be


conveniently mounted to walls, base plates, or slip fitters
(horizontal or vertical). See page 7 for mounting options. 68˚

PAT E N T E D A R C S T R E A M A L I G N E R
The Infranor Polaris-12 also comes standard with an Arc Stream
Aligner in all of the horizontally lamped metal halide options.
The Arc Stream Aligner is a patented device (pat. # 5,111,371)
that ensures that the arc stream itself is in the optical design
center. In normal installations, the effect of gravity causes the
arc to bow upward – away from the design center. The Arc
Stream Aligner is a cam-mounted device that allows for
rotation of the lamp and repositions the arc stream into the
focal point, increasing efficiency and optimizing optical
performance while decreasing unwanted spill light. arc stream aligner

ACCESSORIES
A special reveal has been engineered directly into the doorframe

The Polaris-12 accepts both High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and


Metal Halide (MH) mogul base HID lamps with a maximum
wattage of 400W with an integral ballast and up to 1000W with
a remote ballast.

HPS lamps are ideal for applications where maximum efficacy


and lamp life are required. Metal halide lamps are ideal where
“white light” and good color rendering are essential.

BUILDING FAC ADES

Building and facade lighting can be used to create patterns of


illumination, to provide a uniform wash of the facade, or to
highlight sculptures and other architectural features. The
plethora of beam patterns available with the Polaris-12
product addresses the variety of installation challenges and
provides solutions to all architectural lighting needs.

This application uses the RN reflector option at a short


setback to highlight the building facade.

12
SIGNAGE

Good sign lighting design is accomplished by minimizing


spill light while maximizing uniformity. Luminaires
should be unobtrusive and easy to maintain. The Infranor
Polaris-12 product, with its rectangular beam pattern, is
the ideal luminaire for meeting these requirements for
signs of all sizes.

This application uses three RN beam patterns to provide a


uniform illumination over the surface of the sign.

MONUMENTS

Monument lighting should provide an efficient and


interesting solution that highlights the prominent
features while minimizing excessive spill light into
the nighttime sky. The Polaris-12 with its excellent
beam control, is ideal for this type of lighting design.

This application uses several different beam patterns and varying


setbacks to make this a prominent feature in the nighttime sky.
