Acuity Brands Enhances Lithonia Lighting D-Series Area LED Luminaires with Motion Sensors

March 28, 2013

LR-LithoniaLighting-D-Series-Area-Size-1-and-Size-2Acuity Brands introduces Lithonia Lighting® D-Series Area LED luminaires integrated with Sensor Switch® motion sensors. The D-Series Area Size 1 and Size 2 LED luminaires utilize motion sensors to increase energy savings in outdoor applications, saving approximately 80 percent in energy than comparable fixed output metal halide fixtures.

Ideal for 15-to 30-foot mounting heights, the luminaire-mounted motion sensor provides a 15-to 20-foot coverage radius and a 300-degree coverage pattern. Innovative presets gradually dim the LED luminaire to a pre-set “low” level when the area becomes unoccupied, achieving energy savings while still providing security lighting. When motion is detected, the luminaires quickly ramp to the full output. The motion sensors feature nine fully programmable attributes including maximum output, motion time delay, dimmed level, fade down and ramp up times.

“With motion sensing, we are able to further enhance the benefits of LED technology to deliver even more energy savings and increase the lifespan of the luminaire,” said Eric Gibson, Value Stream Manager, Lithonia Lighting, Outdoor. “By integrating the motion sensor and the luminaire, we eliminate the need to specify and install the lighting and controls separately. The sensor comes pre-configured to standards established by the customer.”

D-Series Area LED luminaires provide a modern look ideal for many commercial and municipal applications, including parking lots, plazas, campuses and streetscapes.

ngl_logo_finalAcuity Brands has been honored with seven  lighting industry awards including a “Best in Class” from the Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition. Distinctions were awarded to Peerless® and Lithonia Lighting® luminaires during the 2013 LEDucation 7 Conference held on March 20th. The judges, comprised of industry peers, evaluated and selected the lighting industry’s most innovative indoor lighting products.

The Lithonia Lighting W Series LED Wall Bracket was chosen “Best in Class” for excellence in quality, energy efficiency, dimmability, and aesthetic appearance and style among other attributes. W Series LED luminaires feature integrated controls that maximize energy savings in low-traffic or low-occupancy areas such as corridors, stairwells and restrooms. The luminaires automatically turn on or off as occupants move in and out of the areas.

According to the NGL, the idea behind its organization is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. The goal is to recognize products that are not only attractive, but that are also energy-efficient and deliver good lighting quality.

NGL judges also distinguished Acuity Brands with six “Recognized” awards granted for the following innovative LED luminaires:  Round LED luminaire by Peerless®; Peerless® Mino LED luminaire;  Origami™ LED luminaire by Peerless®;  I-BEAM® LED high bay luminaire by Lithonia Lighting®;  IBH LED industrial low bay luminaire by Lithonia Lighting®; and  Proteon™ SL linear pendant luminaire by Lithonia Lighting®.
