Texas A&M Study Documents Significant Energy Savings at DFW Airport After Axis Product Installation
LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets:AXTG) released the results of a study conducted by the Texas A&M Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) after a year-long evaluation on a test installation utilizing the Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting (DDH) ballast system at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The ballasts were installed and tested in the Terminal B area of DFW Airport.
“Again we have proven that we have a superior product and it is especially gratifying to have a renowned third party like Texas A&M Energy Systems Lab concur with our previous findings”
The test installation was made in November 2004, and the results were published by the ESL in January of 2006. The report cited an overall lighting energy reduction of 20% over the previous T8 system and a 26% peak demand reduction.
A competitors product was also tested in the same area and the Axis product outperformed the competitor by 21%. Axis management feels this is especially significant because the competitive product is considered the only product that is remotely comparable to the Axis DDH ballast’s dimming/daylight harvesting features.
“Again we have proven that we have a superior product and it is especially gratifying to have a renowned third party like Texas A&M Energy Systems Lab concur with our previous findings,” said Brian Bowman of Axis Technologies.
A comprehensive report can be obtained on the company’s website or copies of the full report are available in Word format by contacting Axis Technologies, Inc. at (866) 458-9880.

About the Axis DDH Ballast
A "ballast" is an electronic component that regulates voltage in fluorescent lighting. Axis Technologies Group, Inc. has developed an innovative new ballast with the aim of expanding daylight harvesting into mainstream fluorescent lighting applications. The patented Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballast is a new technology that transforms the ballast, a once standard lighting industry staple, into a dynamic energy saving system that can reduce lighting energy costs by up to 70%. The Axis DDH Ballast utilizes an individual photo sensor to automatically adjust the amount of electrical current flowing to the light fixture, and then dims or increases lighting in conjunction with the amount of available sunlight that may be harvested from available windows and sunlight. The Axis DDH Ballast avoids "over-lit" conditions that increase energy costs by keeping lighting "tuned" to the desired level in a designated area.
