Standard introduced a complete line of “new generation” T2 spiral CFLs. Their miniature size allows them to fit in just about any fixture and, says the company, they sport an improved structure over the previous generation, making them more solid and durable. These lamps boast better performance, says Standard, including longer lamp life (average 12,000 hours) and improved lumens. This generation is made with amalgam allowing for higher lumen maintenance and even colour temperature. The T2 CFLs are available in 9W, 13W, 18W and 23W versions in a variety of colour temperatures (ranging from 2700K to 5000K). Compared to their incandescent equivalents, the company says these T2 lamps last 12 times longer and use 80% less energy.STANDARD PRODUCTS

In collaboration with optic developers and LED manufacturers, Mine Safety Innovations (helmet lighting) has introduced LED retail accent spot and flood lighting. The MSI iPAR38 is dimmable and is expected to last more than 10 years (when lit 12 hours/day). It is CSA certified, available in 2700K or 3000K in 10º spot, 16º hybrid or 22.5º flood, and constructed with lead-free materials. The “Power Band” multi-output feature can be changed from 10W to 12W to 16W, says the company, with a simple click. Mine Safety calls this a “smart light” because of its PIC technology; with the hand-held device they provide, you can determine the wattage settings, beam spread and hours of use simply by pointing the device at the lamp.MINE SAFETY INNOVATIONS
HessAmerica’s pedestrian-scale Sera LED luminaire emits no uplight above 90º horizontal, and can be used for LEED lighting zones LZ2 through LZ4. The optical system consists of two high-power LEDs working in conjunction with a reflector and prismatic lens; light from the LED module is reflected outward and refracted through the lens to produce a long and narrow light distribution pattern. The prisms on the inside of the lens minimize the visual brightness of the luminaire while producing uniform illumination on the ground. Total power consumption is 39 watts. The Sera housing and integral fitter are die-cast aluminum; the formed aluminum door latch is flush to the housing and provides tool-less access to the luminaire.

Warm White and Natural Daylight versions are available.BULBRITE
The EvoLucia division of Sunovia Energy Technologies Inc. introduces Aimed Optics technology, which it uses in a series of pole- and surface-mounted roadway and area luminaires with individually lensed, custom-aimed LEDs. EvoLucia luminaires are the only such units that employ Aimed Optics, boasts the company, and meet each of four standard light distribution patterns set by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). Higher light utilization (greater light output) is achieved with Aimed Optics, continues EvoLucia, providing higher “fitted target efficiencies”; it further allows EvoLucia’s LED arrays and fixtures to meet Dark Sky guidelines and LEED certification requirements.EVOLUCIA
GE Lighting Solutions combined the traditional HID streetlight with LED technology and the Evolve optic light engine to create the R150 cobrahead luminaire. The Evolve design optimizes distribution, reduces glare and offers high utilization, says the company. The contoured housing closely resembles existing fixtures in the field, and incorporates a heat-sink fin design that, GE says, provides excellent thermal management for extended LED life while allowing for water run-off, minimizing dirt build-up on the exterior. GE says the LED photometric control contributes to colour consistency, greater optical control to provide light only where desired, improved fixture efficiency for lower operating cost, and better control of spill light to reduce light trespass. The R150 cobrahead can offer a 10-year+ service life and has field-replaceable components when maintenance is necessary. (Appeared EBMag May 2010, Products)GENERAL ELECTRIC
Beacon’s Aurora employs a monolithic, integral heat-sink housing, which can mount flush to ceilings without supports. Horizontally opposed cast aluminum fins provides 5.9 sf of surface area to dissipate heat away from sensitive LED components. Fins are downward sloping to prevent sediment and moisture buildup on surfaces. Heat is not trapped with the luminaire; Beacon says this significantly reduces junction temperatures, maximizing LED light output and rated life. LEDs come in a choice of 32W, 40W, 48W and 80W in Cool, Neutral or Warm White. Dual circuitry allows individual switching for further energy savings during daylight, low occupancy or vacancy hours. LED drivers have over-voltage, over-current, short-circuit and lightning protection as standard. Aurora has no special at-installation ventilation requirements. LEDs are sealed to IP65 standards inside a pull-out aluminum tray, behind a high-impact, thermo-formed acrylic lens. (Appeared EBMag May 2010, Products)BEACON

Standard Products, a supplier of lighting solutions to the commercial, industrial and residential markets, has added a dimmable PAR38 to its line of energy-efficient cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs). The company says CCFLs are long-lasting, consume little energy and, of course, are dimmable. (The term ‘cold-cathode’ refers to the fact the cathode is not independently heated. The voltage potential within the tube is sufficient to ionize the gas in the tube and cause current flow.) The cold-cathode PAR-shaped lamp provides a clear advantage over traditional directional lighting, says Standard, due to its cooler operation. It is dimmable across a range of 100% to 20%, and is suitable for frequent start and rapid flashing applications. Available in 2700K and 4100K—with an average life rating of 25,000 hours—the 18W dimmable lamp replaces a higher wattage halogen or incandescent reflector lamp, while lasting anywhere from 10 to 25 times longer.
