Durable illumination

Lighting fixtures for walkways and entrances where durability is important have a one-piece hydroformed reflector with an anodized finish. The integral flutes direct light as well as heat away from the envelope, thereby increasing lamp life and fixture efficiency. With a glare-free acrylic lens and optional polycarbonate lens with UV inhibitive coating, illumination is easy on the eyes. Its cast aluminum base is built with two level vials to ensure proper fixture alignment and easy installation. Booth #2202

Let there be light

Lighting at the Herz Jesu Kirche (Heart of Jesus Church) in Munich, Germany, incorporates PAR56 lamps. Each layer of light is controlled by a 20-zone preset dimming system. Both low-voltage and line-voltage lamps were used to illuminate the worship space. All fixtures were concealed and recessed in the ceiling to reduce glare and improve appearance. The church received the 2000 GE Edison Award for the unusual lighting application. Booth #502

Taking the heat

Compact fluorescent lamp with a patented Air Gap and advanced Amalgam Technology provide longer life in hot locations, higher lumen maintenance and consistent color. The technology cools the lamp by isolating the ballast from the heat-generating center of the lamp, allowing cool air to circulate around the ballast, thereby enabling it to operate with a wider tolerance for heat. As a result, tolerances can reach 300 F. Booth #202

Ballast blast

Ballast for new 32-watt triple tube compact fluorescent lamps offers flicker-free dimming from 5 to 100 percent light, meaning that just the different light levels can be selected within a single room. The Hi-lume Compact SE is an ultrathin, 1-in.-high profile ballast that is best for decorative wall sconces. Utilizing high-frequency electronics, these ballasts save electricity as lamps are dimmed, making them an alternative to incandescent downlights in meeting rooms, lobbies and health-care facilities.

Standby lighting

Energy-saving lighting system offers security by providing standby light levels until normal lighting is turned on as an area is occupied. During standby mode, energy consumption may be as low as 7 watts with light levels as low as 5 percent so building occupants aren't left in the dark. By not fully lighting seldom-used areas, the Occu-Smart Lighting system provides substantial energy savings without compromising safety.
