UNION CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Finelite, Inc., a recognized leader in energy-efficient lighting systems for offices, educational, and healthcare facilities, is pleased to announce that two new product families, the E1 Collection of LED Pendant Luminaires and the Series 16 LED Family of Rectilinear Direct/Indirect Luminaires were recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) for inclusion in the 2013 IES Progress Report.
The E1 Collection is the first in a new family of products—the Elements of Design—a platform of distinctive, architectural indirect LED luminaires. E1-Indirect Linear and E1 Indirect Configuration are notable for the following:
- Extruded aluminum alloy body with Top Glow™ diffuser providing a clean architectural element
- Only 1.25-inch wide by 0.8-inch high
- High Output for the 2 ft x 2 ft configuration delivers 3000 lumens in 3500K with an efficacy of 83.8 lumens per watt. E1 opens new opportunities for tight energy budgets
- Options include hundreds of colors, runs of any length and configurations to meet specific design needs
The Series 16 LED Family of Rectilinear Direct/Indirect Luminaires is the first collection of linear LED luminaires to provide the following:
- Multiple optical and lumen packages including indirect-direct and direct distributions
- Dimming is standard. Options include daylight and occupancy sensors, DALI controls
- Optional independent control of the uplight and downlight
- Light engines delivering up to an industry best 112.7 lumens per watt
Finelite’s ambient LED luminaires come with an industry-best 10-year warranty on all components. Using mid-power LEDs, their luminaires are rated L90 – delivering 90% of their initial light output even after 100,000 hours of operation. All of Finelite’s LED luminaires are serviceable from below.
“I am proud of the Finelite engineers and product designers who helped us achieve this recognition,” said Finelite Founder, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer, Terry Clark. “The contrast between the micro-shape and the substantial lumen output of the E1 is a terrific demonstration of the design opportunities LED technology can provide. And the addition of a 100,000-hour life LED option for the Series 16 LED Family is right in line with the Finelite mission of providing unsurpassed quality and value at an affordable price to our customers”, Clark added.
The IES Progress Committee is mandated to, "keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world, and prepare a yearly review of achievements for the Illuminating Engineering Society.” This year’s report will be presented on October 28, 2013 at the IES Annual Conference in Huntington Beach, California and at regional IES Chapter meetings throughout the coming year. In addition, a summary of the report will be published in the January 2014 issue of LD+A magazine.
