Product Monday: Configurable Narrow Linear LED Luminaire by LaMar

LaMar Lighting’s ALN Aluminum Narrow Linear LED luminaire has a narrow footprint of 2 in. width, making it readily adaptable into various configurations.

LaMar Lighting’s ALN Aluminum Narrow Linear LED luminaire has a narrow footprint of 2 in. width, making it readily adaptable into various configurations.

When installed in a single row, the ALN luminaire can be connected end-to-end in a continuous run of up to 24 linear feet. This makes the luminaire well-suited to illuminating hallways, warehouses, or aisles of a grocery store—anywhere great lengths of continuous light are needed. In addition, the ALN module can also be mounted in parallel arrays, either two units side-by-side or three units stacked separately, in a wider array, to deliver up to 20,000 lumens, well-suited for workbench or inspection area lighting.

Each luminaire is powered by an internal power supply that accepts universal voltage input, from 120V to 277V AC, and is suitable for indoor and outdoor locations. The ALN can be specified in 2- or 4-ft. lengths, corresponding to 20W or 40W tubes. The fixture features a beam angle of 120° and just over 130om/W (2600Lu/20W or 5200 Lu/40W).

MIT Engineers Induce Plants to Glow for Nearly Four Hours

Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have been able to induce plants to produce a dim light for about four hours, the result of injecting an enzyme into the plants causing them to glow. They believe this could be a solution to street lighting and possibly even become bright enough to serve as indoor lighting.

Product Monday: Remedi LED Bed Light by Hubbell Lighting

Hubbell Lighting’s Remedi™ LED multi-function bed light features four distinct optical compartments to eliminate the need to physically move any portion of the luminaire housing to utilize key lighting functions. This is a radical departure from the traditional solutions and an innovation that allows the healthcare professional to more efficiently accomplish critical patient evaluations, eliminates a potentially hazardous activity over the patient, and reduces the chance of contamination.

Hubbell Lighting’s Remedi™ LED multi-function bed light features four distinct optical compartments to eliminate the need to physically move any portion of the luminaire housing to utilize key lighting functions. This is a radical departure from the traditional solutions and an innovation that allows the healthcare professional to more efficiently accomplish critical patient evaluations, eliminates a potentially hazardous activity over the patient, and reduces the chance of contamination. Its use of LED sources enabled a new form that provides an alternative to traditional “flip-top” solutions.

A molded linear optic is incorporated into the exam compartment to direct light precisely on the bed surface while the ambient source provides a soft indirect contribution. The ambient source is energized when the examination function is engaged. This approach to exam illumination delivers more than 100 average footcandles on the patient bed with a uniformity under 5:1 max:min, meeting industry recommendations. Remedi can be specified in one of four color temperatures (3000K, 3500K, 4000K or 5000K) and with either a >80 or >90 CRI.

Another departure from the norm is Remedi’s use of an air gap between the optical housing and wire way. This approach provides a lighter overall appearance and presents the opportunity to incorporate an optional full-length indirect night light. By hiding the aperture of the night light, there is zero glare, adding to patient comfort. It is available in either 3000K white light or amber (590 nm) to minimize disruption to a patient’s sleep patterns. Another option is the three-way night light switching that offers On/Off and light level control. This control turns on the night light at 25 percent. The light level can then be increased to match the task, ensuring patient comfort and staff satisfaction.

The low-profile luminaire, with a shallow 2-in. housing height, is suitable for coves ranging from 4 in. to 24 in. in height and mounts in drywall, grid, and industry-leading pre-engineered cove ceiling solutions. Specify individual units or continuous linear runs in 1-ft. increments for uninterrupted, even illumination. The installation of continuous runs is simplified via a quick connect thru-wire, accommodating up to a 1-in. gap between luminaires.

The luminaire’s clean form is achieved by a fully concealed optic delivering up to 1200 lumens per foot. An asymmetric beam distribution, optimized for visual appeal, provides even illumination for corridors, lobbies, and other commercial spaces.

CLTC Evaluates Linear LED Lamps in Report

CLTC recently collaborated with the Emerging Technologies group at Pacific Gas & Electric Company to evaluate linear LED lamps in a variety of luminaire applications, as well as identify cross-compatibility issues of select products.

CLTC recently collaborated with the Emerging Technologies group at Pacific Gas & Electric Company to evaluate linear LED lamps in a variety of luminaire applications, as well as identify cross-compatibility issues of select products.

The goal of this project was to evaluate linear LED lamps intended to replace equivalent linear fluorescent systems when operating under real-world conditions expected of commercial retrofits and in luminaires other than recessed troffers. Product performance, as compared to a standard linear fluorescent baseline, is provided in terms of photometrics, energy use, and cross-compatibility of products within linear LED lamp type categories A and C.
