CAST LED Perimeter Light Install – Aquarius Supply Case Study Video

Security Need 

Located in Hawthorne, NJ, this large distributor of green industry supplies has open-storage inventory in their one-acre back lot. Surrounded on three sides by a 10-foot chain link fence with barbed wire, the company has a history of theft. Lighting from adjacent lots provide some illumination but the company wished to test the effectiveness of additional perimeter lighting.

System Specifications 

A single 200-ft length of fence was selected for the demo. LED Perimeter Lights (CPL1) were attached to fence posts every 20 ft. for a total of 10 fixtures. A single 300 VA, 24V, CAST Perim

eter Transformer (CPT300) powered the system.


Installation was undertaken with a 2-man crew and completed within 3 hours. Client was extremely impressed with the brightness along the fence and within a 20 ft. region both inside and outside the perimeter. The position of lights on the fence illuminated regions previously in deep shadow.

CAST LED Perimeter Lighting System Cost

  • (10) CPL1 fixtures:
  • (1) CPT300 Transformer:
  • 250 Feet #14/2 Low Voltage No-Ox Wire:
  • Energy Cost: $40/year
  • 10-year Maintenance: 3 Hrs. Cleaning: $30

Cost Comparison*

A cost-comparison was done by specifying a comparable system installation of (10) fence-mounted High Pressure Sodium (HPS) 50W Flood Lights, operating at 277 volts.

  • Energy Cost: $274/year
  • 10-year Maintenance: 5 Lamp replacements: $957

Cost advantages comparing the CAST LED system and High-Pressure Sodium System:

  • Savings in Energy Cost: 85%
  • Savings in Maintenance: 97%
  • Total 10-year savings: $7,205

*This HPS system was selected for comparison because it is designed to perform the same function as the CAST system – with a similar fence-mounted configuration. It also represents the kind of installation that all 120 or 277 V systems require. Other pole-mounted perimeter lights are likely to produce similar cost comparisons. The costs for the HPS system were obtained from an independent bid from local contractors.
