MANITOWOC, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OESX), a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance, energy-efficient retrofit lighting platforms, announced today that its ISON™ Class Gen II LED High Bay fixture has been selected for one of Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s 2016 Products of the Year. At the time award applications were being accepted, the ISON™ Class Gen II LED High Bay fixture was the highest performing LED high bay fixture in the industry, delivering 179 lumens per watt (LPW). Earlier this month, Orion announced the launch of its third generation ISON™ Class Gen lll LED High Bay fixture that delivers an astounding 214 LPW. Until now, the industry would have considered 200 LPW unattainable.
Orion’s ISON™ Class Gen II LED High Bay fixture was one of the products selected by the print and digital audience of Consulting-Specifying Engineer from a group of 100+ finalists. The finalists were selected from a larger group of applicants by qualified engineers and building professionals who specify products and systems for nonresidential facilities.
Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s 12th Annual Product of the Year award showcases practical innovation, educating the industry about the top new products in the field designed to increase efficiency and improve system quality. Winners of the 12th annual Consulting-Specifying Engineer Product of the Year awards included electrical and power systems and technologies, HVAC systems, lighting and lighting controls, plumbing and water management, and a host of other cutting-edge products.
The ISON™ Class Gen II LED High Bay fixture and the ISON™ Class Gen III LED High Bay fixture are the flagship offerings in Orion’s latest LED High Bay Suite, which features unprecedented modular platforms with hundreds of options that plug and play with standard electrical connections. The fixture is upgradeable and interchangeable, allowing maintenance crews to meet changing light distribution requirements, such as moving from an open area to aisle lighting. By simply turning off the power to the luminaire, internal teams can use quick attachments to easily switch out aisle illuminators and modular power packs for driver replacement. To date, Orion lighting products have saved its customers $3.86 billion in energy costs.
Orion has won multiple Product of the Year awards in previous years including the 2009 Product of the Year Grand Award for Orion’s APOLLO® Solar Light Pipe and a 2015 Product of the Year award for its APOLLO® LED LDR® Troffer Retrofit Series.
