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.

Acuity Brands Enhances Popular Lithonia Lighting TWH and TWP Luminaires with LED Technology

February 5, 2013

TWH and TWP LED outdoor wall-mounted luminaires deliver more than 100,000 hours of maintenance-free operation.

LR-TWP-LED-WallpackAcuity Brands now offers its popular Lithonia Lighting TWH and TWP outdoor wall-mounted luminaires with LED technology.

TWH and TWP LED luminaires are identical in size to their traditional counterparts and offer a familiar, classic appearance while delivering ultra-reliable, energy-efficient LED illumination. With an expected service life of more than 20 years, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires are virtually maintenance free and eliminate up to 12 metal halide lamp replacements. Designed to replace up to a 400W metal halide luminaire, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires offer up to 77 percent in energy savings and are capable of producing up to 6,700 lumens.

“The TWH and TWP LED luminaires are an excellent option when replacing existing traditional wall packs,” said Andrew Nowak, Lithonia Lighting Value Stream Manager, Building Mount Luminaires. “With a larger footprint than other wall packs, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires are able to conceal weathered wall stains and blemishes left by existing luminaires, while also making it possible for a seamless and gradual upgrade to an LED source.”

The TWH and TWP LED luminaires are available in 10, 20 and 30 LED configurations. Unlike some similar competing LED luminaires, which offer only bare LEDs behind a glass or polycarbonate outer lens, the TWH and TWP LED luminaires use individual LED primary optics that focus light on the outer lens of the luminaire and allow a larger percentage of the light to be delivered to the target area.

Available with a choice of two lenses, the TWH LED luminaire features a die-cast front housing and glass lens, while the TWP LED luminaire features a vandal-resistant polycarbonate lens, which makes the TWP ideal for lower mounting heights.

It is estimated the store will save $5,000 annually in energy costs compared to typical HID and fluorescent lamp sources.

Working with PM&E Design Group and Resource Lighting, Care-A-Lot selected a variety of Acuity Brands lighting solutions to solve unique challenges. Challenges included lighting a space and merchandise effectively with 30-foot-high-ceilings, as well as achieving optimum lighting and minimal glare for the aquarium displays. On the exterior, Care-A-Lot needed a solution to provide quality lighting in their large parking lot, while minimizing light pollution to the neighboring residential community.

“We wanted to work with one lighting manufacturer for the new Care-A-Lot store,” said Jake Stevens, a project leader with Resource Lighting who helped design the lighting solution. “Acuity Brands was the perfect partner because it delivers a wide range of indoor and outdoor lighting products, very high quality fixtures, as well as beautiful, decorative fixtures.”

I-BEAM® fluorescent highbays from Lithonia Lighting were installed throughout the sales floor to enhance the lighting for two different shelving types. RT5™ volumetric recessed lighting fixtures from Lithonia Lighting integrated with ceiling and wall controls from Sensor Switch were installed in the veterinary exam rooms, kennel rooms, washrooms, offices, break rooms, hallways and restrooms. For aesthetics and energy savings, Care-A-Lot installed Gotham EVO® LED downlights, as well as recessed DoM series LED luminaires from Lithonia Lighting to minimize glare on aquarium tanks.

On the exterior, Lithonia Lighting ALX LED luminaires help keep light within property lines to eliminate light spill and light pollution in the neighboring residential area. Winona Lighting Winscape™ Hensley LED ingrades and Winscape ™ Benton LED wall-mounted cylinders illuminate the columns and entryway to the store.

New Wallpack LED Luminaires From Holophane Cut Energy Costs Up to 77 Percent

January 9, 2013

LR-Wallpack-LED-HolophaneFixtures replace metal halide or HPS systems, offers 20+ year service life

Acuity Brands introduces Wallpack® LED luminaires from Holophane that deliver up to 6,500 lumens while reducing energy consumption by as much as 77 percent compared to traditional lighting units. Ideal for replacing 35 watt to 400-watt metal halide fixtures, Wallpack LED luminaires are designed with the same classic appearance that made the Wallpack line popular. Wallpack LED fixtures are offered in two styles with die-cast aluminum housing: W4G with prismatic glass lens and W4P with a polycarbonate lens for lower mounting heights requiring vandal resistance.

Available with 10, 20 or 30 LEDs, Wallpack LED luminaires employ individual optics over each LED to deliver a higher percentage of light to the ground where it is needed. A high-efficiency electronic driver delivers constant current to the LEDs and offers internal surge protection.

Wallpack LED fixtures are designed for more than 20 years of service life with virtually no maintenance. They can eliminate as many as 10 metal halide lamp replacements. Tests confirm the luminaires deliver more than 70 percent of their initial lumen output even after 100,000 hours of operation.

“Long, reliable operation ensures building exteriors or underpasses remain safely illuminated to boost safety and security,” said David Deck, Holophane Product Manager, Infrastructure. “Wallpack LED fixtures create comfortable, uniformly illuminated environments free of dark spots generally resulting from failed HID lamps.”

Designed in a traditional day-form, the new luminaires ensure an aesthetically appealing look that provides a seamless gradual upgrade to an LED system without interfering with an area’s visual appearance. The fixtures share the same footprint as traditional Wallpack units and can hide unsightly wall stains left by the original lighting units.

Wallpack LED luminaires are easy to install and require only three bolts to secure the fixtures to the mounting surface. Fixtures may be wired in recessed junction boxes through the back casting or through the top ¾-inch NPT when using surface conduit.

Lighting system owners can further improve energy savings by pairing W4G Wallpack LED luminaires with lighting control solutions, including Acuity Brands’ compatible ROAM® monitoring system. Wallpack LED fixtures are appropriate for a range of environments including perimeter lighting and security lighting for industrial and commercial buildings, schools, parking garages, underpasses, and tunnels.
