New 18,000- and 26,000-lumen LED fixtures integrate daylight harvesting sensors with System’s built-in intelligence to drive even greater energy savings; now suitable for broader range of industrial environments, including production facilities requiring IP-65-rated fixtures
Boston, Mass., November 16, 2011— Digital Lumens, developer of the market-leading Intelligent LED Lighting System, today announced significant additions to its product portfolio with new 18,000- and 26,000-lumen highbay LED lighting fixtures – all with integrated daylight harvesting sensors – and enhancements to LightRules™, the Digital Lumens centralized control system that maximizes energy efficiency.
Designed for use in an expanded range of commercial and industrial environments, including those requiring an IP 65 rating for washdown capabilities, the new fixtures are a lumen-for-lumen replacement of existing T5 and T8 High-Intensity Fluorescents (HIF) and feature:
- Up to 100% increase in raw light output (lumens), supporting higher delivered light levels, deployment in facilities with higher ceilings, and greater fixture spacing;
- Integrated daylight sensors to further reduce energy usage (see separate release);
- Increased environmental resistance (IP65), making the fixtures applicable to production environments that require washdown or UL damp-rated fixtures;
- A choice of optics options, making the fixtures suitable for both open and aisle applications; and
- Greater lighting energy savings.
“Industrial customers worldwide have rapidly come to understand the energy efficiency differences between plain LED fixtures and our Intelligent Lighting Systems, and are saving millions of kilowatt hours annually,” said Michael Feinstein, Digital Lumens’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With these new offerings, our Intelligent Lighting System is able to offer even greater energy savings for facilities with available ambient light, accelerating project payback and maximizing long-term savings.”
These new fixtures join Digital Lumens’s existing product portfolio, which includes 10,000- and 15,000-lumen LED intelligent lighting fixtures, giving customers a selection of luminaires to best meet their needs. All Digital Lumens fixtures feature integrated occupancy sensors and are wirelessly controlled by LightRules central management platform, which maximizes energy efficiency by providing light when and where needed, and provides lighting scheduling and detailed lighting energy reports.
“The higher lumen output, integrated daylight harvesting, and enhancements to the Intelligent Lighting System make Digital Lumens’s solutions more appealing to a broader range of our industrial customers, including those looking for lumen-for-lumen replacements of their 400 watt metal halide or 6- and 8-lamp fluorescent fixtures,” said Gary Hubbard, Project Manager for Leading Edge Design Group, a Digital Lumens reseller. “Facilities engineers are very interested in controllable highbay LED lighting and we’re very excited to offer the expanded Digital Lumens portfolio to them.”
Digital Lumens continues to help industrial customers drive energy efficiencies, providing 100% of the light for 10% of the energy cost. The Company’s solutions have been proven with more than 100 large-scale facilities driving 33 million kWh of total annual lighting energy savings.
