Switch Lighting has announced the availability of its family of LED A-lamps. Switch says they are the only liquid-cooled LED A-lamps that can be used in any fixture, any orientation, both indoors and out. The company will be unveiling 40, 60, 75, and 100 watt-equivalent lamps and the SWITCH3-Way, a 25/50/75 watt-equivalent LED incandescent replacement A-Lamp for use in three way fixtures.
The EMerge Alliance – an open industry association pushing for the rapid adoption of safe direct-current power distribution standards for commercial buildings – today announced the addition of six new members. GVA Lighting, Amatis Controls, PolyBrite International, SRI North America, Power Sources Manufacturers Association and Penn State University have joined the organization.
WAC Lighting is to unveil a commercial grade outdoor wall sconce that casts light up and down. The die-cast aluminum constructed sconce is designed with a regressed LED light source and a 35-degree cut-off angle that provide consistent glare-free, shadowless illumination, the company says.
Lighting Science Group announced the launch of its Forefront line of architectural luminaires. Forefront lights are available in area, flood, highbay, pedestrian and wall variations. The line is also the first to use Lighting Science Group’s occupancy sensing technology PixelView.
Cirrus Logic Inc. has introduced its second family of digital LED controllers with digital TruDim dimmer compatibility technology. The new CS163X family provides two-channel LED color mixing capabilities allowing LED bulb manufacturers to more efficiently create warm, natural-style light, while also lowering the cost barrier for two-channel LED retrofit bulbs. The line is compatible with all existing dimmers, Cirrus says.
GlacialLight has launched the GL-PL0312 LED Panel Light (pictured). The high-efficiency 58W LED panel is designed to replace older, less-efficient light panels. Its key advantages are reduced power costs, long life, and low heat, the company says.
Lunera Lighting Inc. has released a 110 lumen per watt recessed troffer that the company says delivers efficient, natural light to a variety of general lighting applications. The Series 22 luminaire supports multiple lumen packages and is robust enough to deliver up to 8000 lumens.
