Kim Lighting Launches Wall Director LED as Part of the Increasing Expansion of Its MicroEmitter LED Technology
Press release date: June 30, 2010
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. - Kim Lighting, the premiere manufacturer of architectural outdoor lighting, announces the launch of its Wall Director LED. The Wall Director LED is a wall-mounted luminaire that offers an innovative approach to lighting ground surfaces, canopies, ceilings and architectural features while providing superior energy efficient solutions.
Every aspect of its form expresses functional qualities that have been engineered into the product's design. Flowing lines cascade from the wall on the surface of the stylized, modern shaped housing which adds to your structure's architectural relevance.
The Wall Director LED is designed to employ Kim Lighting's patent pending MicroEmitter(TM) technology featuring its unparalleled ability to capture and harness light using a patent pending optical system that shapes, points and tightly controls the beam of individual clusters of LEDs within independent MicroEmitter modules. The result is placing light where it is needed, creating superior uniformity by minimizing overlapping horizontal footcandles, and in turn reducing energy waste. Furthermore, the Wall Director LED is designed with an upgradeable EmitterDeck design allowing ease of change-out in the field as LED technology advances.
Kim Lighting designed the Wall Director LED with sustainability in mind: the product is constructed from more than 90 percent post and pre-consumed recycled materials, the housing, LEDs and drivers contain no lead or mercury, all electronic components are RoHS compliant, upgradeability prevents landfill dumping from non-upgradeable systems, and 580nm color temperature options provide safety for sensitive wildlife zones.
Key product attributes and benefits include:
o Designed to employ Kim Lighting's patent pending MicroEmitter(TM) Technology.
- Optimal glare control for safety and visual comfort.
- MicroEmitter modules are precisely aimed to hit the lighting task, reducing spill light and energy waste.
- LED modules are easily upgradeable as LED technology advances.
o Available in IES Type II, III, and IV in both small (WD14) and large (WD18) sizes.
o Can be installed in both the up and down orientations without overheating due to heat rising.
o Designed with a Dual Thermal Management System, conduction and convection, to absorb and dissipate heat, and introduces an exclusive LifeShield Protection System monitor to maintain lumen loss depreciation to less than 15% at 100,000 hours of operation (based on IESNA LM-79 and LM-80) in extreme and fluctuating environmental conditions without overheating or failing.
o Standard LED driver features a 0-10V dimming interface, allowing 0-100% output controls when coupled with a control or dimming system.
o Available in three standard color temperatures, 3500K, 5100K and 1700K (Amber - 580nm), other color temperatures are available special order.
o Designed with an exclusive EmitterDeck design allowing ease of change-out in the field as LED technology advances.
o Standard tempered flat glass (lexan lens optional).
o Tool-less entry to optical chamber and driver assembly for ease of maintenance. (Model WD14 only)
o Compatible driver options for renewable energy systems.
o IP-66 rated for wet location and hose-down applications.
o Progress 5/6/10 warranty. Contact factory for provisions.
o Meets ARRA and NAFTA criteria.
Awards and Recognitions:
2010 IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) Progress Report Recipient.
