High-Lites’ HL-95-105 models are supplied with high-output MR16 halogen lamps, which provide enhanced path of egress illumination during emergency conditions. The low-profile units are available in both standard and self-diagnostic versions. The 105 offers 12 watts of additional capacity for operating remote lighting fixtures, or for extended emergency operation time. The product may be wall or ceiling mounted. Other features include: UV-stable thermoplastic housing in neutral cream finish; universal mounting plate with plug-in connector for ease of installation; fully adjustable lighting heads; maintenance-free battery; and universal 120/277vAC input. Available options include black finish and matching remote lighting fixtures. (Appeared EBMag May 2010, Products)HIGH-LITES
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.

Legrand/Pass & Seymour introduced dual-technology wall switch sensors to provide “optimum energy management and control” for a variety of commercial applications. Suitable for small offices, executive suites, etc., the sensors offer the choice of automatic ON or Manual ON operation; the combination of passive infrared (PIR) and ultrasonic technologies provides high sensitivity to both small and large movements, along with wide, dense detection. Three control options can set the ON/OFF time delay once occupancy is detected; a self-adaptive option adjusts time delays based on usage patterns, assigning delays as brief as seven minutes when space is typically vacant, and up to 30 minutes for busier times. The product design fits into existing boxes for simple installation, and a bi-level model provides control of two independent lighting loads from the same box.

LED light fixture developer and manufacturer, Sunovia Energy Technologies Inc., has partnered with Solar Electric Power Co., a maker of solar-powered electric lighting, to produce solar-powered LED lighting fixtures for street, area and landscape applications. Their first applications are for single lighthead lantern-style and cobra head LED street and area lights employing Sunovia’s Aimed Optics technology. And did you know a fixture could be “turtle friendly”? Sunovia lights protect sea turtle nesting and hatching areas by casting a form of LED light that aids turtles in staying on the beach rather than attract them to adjacent roadways.SUNOVIA
WattStopper has published its 2010/2011 Product Selection Guide—a lighting control guidebook containing information on strategies, product technologies, energy code compliance, sustainability and design assistance. WattStopper says the book is easy to use, with colour-coded sections dedicated to each product category. Users will find cutsheets complete with specs, wiring diagrams, coverage patterns and detailed product information. Additionally, design and application guidelines help out with Digital Lighting Management, lighting control panels, occupancy and vacancy sensors, daylighting controls, plug load controls, fixture sensors and wireless lighting controls.WATTSTOPPER
NxGen Technologies has developed LED replacement lamps for the S14-shaped incandescent bulbs commonly found in decorative lighting applications. The lamps consume less than one watt of electricity, says NxGen, while giving off the same amount of light, and have been designed to last up to 40,000 hours. The S14s come in various transparent and opaque (ceramic) colours and, according to the company, are indistinguishable from their incandescent counterparts. Common applications for the S14 include decorative lighting found in restaurants, bars, theatre signage, shopping malls, etc. (Appears EBMag April 2010, Products)NXGEN TECHNOLOGIES
From HessAmerica comes Athens—an architectural-grade, pole-mounted luminaire for outdoor pedestrian-scale and area lighting applications. Athens is available in two sizes with pole heights scaled accordingly; the housing, lens frame and integral fitter are die-cast aluminum, and full cutoff distribution makes Athens suitable for all LEED lighting zones. The pedestrian-scale Athens model offers 70W, 100W and 150W ceramic metal-halide lamping. The larger area lighting model offers 150W or 250W cMH lamping. Both are available in single-, twin- or bi-level mounting arrangements.HESSAMERICA
Cooper Lighting boasts it has introduced one of the industry’s largest LED outdoor product offerings, providing solutions for streetlighting, area/site, wallmount, parking garage, canopy and pathway applications. The initial rollout includes 16 luminaires featuring Cooper’s patent-pending modular LightBAR technology and AccuLED Optics. The company says the luminaires—including brands Invue, McGraw-Edison, Lumark and Streetworks—can provide up to 75% energy savings over high-intensity discharge outdoor sources, and all are Dark Sky compliant.

WAC Lighting introduced LEDmeT recessed downlights for both residential and commercial applications; offering a potential LED life of 50,000 hours, the fixtures are dimmable and available in 2-in., 3-in. and 4-in. apertures. The LEDs provide the light output equivalent of a 50W halogen, says WAC, while using one-third the power. The 2-in. downlights are IC-rated and feature Open or Adjustable Round and Square Trim styles in an architectural White finish. The adjustable fixtures offer a 40º vertical tilt and 350º degree horizontal rotation. The 3-in. and 4-in. versions offer both IC and Non-IC rated models, and can be dimmed from 100% to 1% using either an incandescent or electronic low-voltage dimmer.WAC LIGHTING

Among the BXFO’s features is AC only and emergency models; universal 120/277vAC field-selectable input; automatic low-voltage battery disconnect, and more.HIGH-LITES
Leviton launched what it calls the industry’s first slide dimmer specifically designed for use with a variety of dimmable CFL bulbs. When in Auto mode, the Decora dimmer detects whether the bulb is an incandescent or dimmable CFL, determines high- and low-end dimming capabilities, and adjusts the dimming range accordingly. According to Leviton, this slide dimmer addresses consumer concerns over flickering, inability to turn the light On, and so forth. (Appears EBMag April 2010, Products)LEVITON
