Computer controls

Lighting-management system helps reduce ongoing energy-demand costs while increasing lighting-system performance. The PowerGate system is comprised of PC software and control devices, which install at the electrical panel, with communication between them taking place using the Internet or an existing corporate network. Using the software, facility operators can program dimming and automatic shut-off on a single lighting circuit up to lighting systems in multiple buildings, flexibly reducing high demand charges and ongoing energy costs.

Hanging in thin air

Wall sconce is a 15-in. in diameter pendant that seems to float in mid-air, as the nearly invisible light source is hidden behind an ultra-flat diffuser. The light that shines against the wall remains white. Opus is ADA compliant and best for use in conference rooms, small offices, and corridors.

Energy-efficient education

The Chisholm Middle School in Chisholm, Minn., installed LightSaver dimming controls as part of an energy-efficiency program. In addition to daylighting controls in classrooms throughout the 26,000-sq.-ft. campus, the school uses occupancy sensors to automatically turn off lights. Lighting is kept at required levels by dividing the classrooms into three zones, based on the level of daylight each room receives. When the amount of daylight is adequate, lights dim to lower levels. Teachers and students also may access LS-4 dimming wall switches for manual control when lighting is not needed during class time.

High lighting

Fluorescent high-bay luminaries for applications with high mounting heights and where high lumen output is required, such as retail and department stores, warehouses, industrial facilities, school gymnasiums, auditoriums, and convention centers. The Metalux F-Bay Lighting System can be used in the retrofit of H.I.D. applications that are operating at 60-70% of their original light output and consuming 25-40% more energy than an equivalent fluorescent product would require.

Display track lighting for the retail, supermarket, and hospitality markets is available in horizontal or vertical ballast housing configurations. The horizontal housing offered in either electronic or magnetic versions features a contoured design with a more diminutive appearance, while the vertical housing, offered in electronic only, accommodates both low and high wattage ballasts, is side-mounted, and keeps the ballast cool.

Three in one

One fixture with three different lighting distributions (including flood, cutoff, and forward throw) can be used as a cut-off wallpak, tilted 22 degrees for a semi-cut-off, or tilted to 45 degrees for flood lighting. The FloodPak can be turned over for indirect or accent lighting and can be pole- or ground-mounted using various mounting accessories. The FloodPak is made with die-cast aluminum, includes a die-cast aluminum mounting box, and is finished in dark bronze polyester powder. The system uses a precision die-formed, multi-faceted reflector system, is fully gasketed, and is available in three sizes ranging from 35-400 watt high-pressure sodium and 50-400 watt metal halide.
