High-Lites’ HEPC Series of emergency power controls adapt locally switched lighting fixtures for emergency operation during power interruptions. The series’ design bypasses the local switch so the lighting fixture will illuminate, regardless of wall switch position during emergency conditions. The controls also save energy by eliminating the need for night-light circuits, and are designed for easy installation in standard electrical boxes. The HEPC Series is compatible with motion detectors and photocells, and is approved for in-wall or in-ceiling applications. Models are available for 120vAC or 277vAC operation, and visual power readiness indicators provide status at a glance. (Appeared EBMag June/July 2010, Products)HIGH-LITES

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.
