Published: June 2008
1 Downlight > Omega Lighting’s Avara color mixing downlight is available in a 40° downlight or a spread lens wall wash, both of which are available in 120V and 277V. The luminaire employs a cyan/yellow/magenta blending that uses dichroic glass filters to provide a spectrum of a possible 16.7 million colors. The system uses a 150W T6 ceramic metal halide lamp for a single-point light source. Control of the Avara may be provided by any DMX512 control or by using the wall-mounted Avara master controller. Controllers allow for programming of up to 13 scenes, and chase sequences are programmable from one second to one hour.
2 Dock Light > TCP Inc.’s LED dock light has a high-intensity LED with low power consumption and is available in a 15W version, providing light levels equivalent to a 300W incandescent light bulb. At 425 lumens, the LED dock light has a 14° beam spread and lasts up to 50,000 hours. It also has a center beam candle power of 7,000 and is IP 65 rated against dust and water. It has a safety yellow epoxy powder coat, and a high-impact acrylic lens for standard locations and a borosilicate lens for hazardous locations.
3 Luminaire > Sun Valley Lighting‘s Sigma full-cutoff outdoor fixture has traditional “gas lamp” styling, a rounded dome with detailed rim and curved supports. The hood houses a segmented aluminum reflector enclosed in a high-impact, clear-tempered glass lens. Type 2, 3, 4 and 5-SQ light distribution patterns are available. Sigma is offered in two sizes: 37-by-23½ in. and 28-by-18½ and is supplied with HID lamps from 50–250W. The fixture is constructed from heavy wall corrosion-resistant cast aluminum and is finished with an electrostatically applied polyester powder coat baked at 400°.
4 Lampholder > Leviton’s compact fluorescent ceiling lampholder for closed spaces uses a 13W GU24 bi-pin bulb that lasts more than 10,000 hours. It consumes 13W of electricity while producing the lighting output of a 60W incandescent bulb. The lampholder is designed for use with any standard, nonilluminated wall switch. It is designed for installation in enclosed areas, such as closets, storage areas, garages, basements, attics, workshops and stairwells. It has pigtail leads and knockout holes for multiple box configurations.
5 Fixture > Appleton’s RigMaster fluorescent lighting fixture is designed to meet the extreme conditions found on offshore and land-based drilling rigs. It has a neoprene gasket and impact-resistant lens to protect and seal against the damaging effects of dirt, dust and moisture. It has a lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum housing that withstands extended exposure to high temperatures, caustic chemicals, UV rays and driving vibrations. It has instant-on capabilities, an optional emergency battery pack and a variety of mounting options, including safety-cable eyebolts.
6 Luminaires > Cooper Lighting’s Halo compact fluorescent recessed downlights are available for both the 5-in. (H573) and 6-in. (H273) aperture lines. The 5-in. housings use 26W lamps, and 6-in. housings use 26W and 32W lamps and accept either triple twin tube or double twin tube (quad) CFL lamps. The downlights have energy-efficient electronic ballasts and dimming from 15 to 100 percent.
7 Luminaires > Del City’s halogen flood lamps are available in black or white. The housing is manufactured from a UV heat-stabilized plastic and incorporates a cable-sealing system to reduce the risk of debris from entering the lamp. The lamps can be positioned at various angles with dual-swivel mounting brackets. All chrome-plated stainless steel mounting hardware is included.
8 Ballast > Osram Sylvania’s PowerShed high-efficiency demand response ballast immediately sheds up to 30 percent of its load when it receives the power line carrier signal from the lighting panel. The instant-start ballast can support two or three lamps, and it has a ballast factor of .87.
9 Luminaire > Orbit/Evergreen’s B106 solid brass path light has a “trumpet vine” glass shade and is designed for garden settings. The 12V fixture includes a fluted shade in amber/green tones or frosted white glass. It has a bayonet 18W lamp (26W max) and is offered in three finishes: antique brass, antique bronze and aged green. The shade measures 5½-by-3 in., and the fixture is 28 in. high. A 8½-in. GS-85 professional ground stake with ½-in. thread is included.
10 CFL > Philips Lighting Co.’s Energy Saver three-way twister CFL replaces a 50–100–150W incandescent three-way bulb using 11, 23 and 34W, for a total savings of 39, 77 and 116W. It is designed for table and floor lamp applications.
11 Ballast > Orbit/UMI’s BAL1400 operates at 1,100–1,400 lumens, offers 90 minutes of emergency operation and can be wireway or fixture mounted. The ballast has 120/277V AC, fully automatic operation; 280 mA charging current; and 24-hour recharging time. Battery, charger and inverter circuit are packaged together.
12 Fixture > Litecontrol’s Radi-X lighting fixture is made of a baffle material, LiteCycle resin, which is made of 50 percent recycled content. The fixture offers direct/indirect lighting, and the combination of radial and axial elements in the Radi-X design cuts off any potential glare from the lamps. It is available in two- or three-lamp options with T8 or T5 lamps.
13 LED Lamp > Lighting Science Group’s R16 LED lamp is designed for use in flood, track and spot lighting. It generates little heat and has a maximum performance of 300 lumens in warm white and 350 in cool white. The lamp has an operating life of 35,000 hours and replaces 40–45W standard incandescent and halogen lamps. The R16 is available with either a white powder-coated or anodized silver housing.
14 CFLs > MaxLite’s HighMax compact fluorescent lamp is designed for use in high and low bays, gymnasiums, wall packs, warehouses and shop floors.
