Ten innovative products, including eight LED luminaires, represent significant product developments and improvements to the lighting industry.
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. - Cooper Lighting, an industry leader committed to delivering innovative products and driving transformational technology in the lighting industry, announces that ten of its innovative products have been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Committee as providing "an advancement in the art and science of lighting." Altogether, Cooper Lighting had nine products accepted - including eight LED luminaires - and Cooper Controls, a business unit of Cooper Lighting, had an additional energy-monitoring product accepted. The products are featured in the 2011 IES Progress Report, which presents significant developments and improvements in the lighting industry over the past year.
The accepted products include:
o Cooper Lighting's Neo-Ray Straight and Narrow 22 LED Luminaires, available in three color temperatures and offering a 25 percent energy savings over fluorescent sources, create slender lines of continuous, uniform illumination for recessed, suspended, surface- and wall-mounted applications.
o Cooper Lighting's Corelite R Mini LED Luminaire is a unique 1' x 1' luminaire that provides a 28 percent reduction in energy with a 10 percent increase in delivered lumens, when compared to a traditional 32W compact fluorescent fixture.
o Cooper Lighting's Corelite Loft/Element Micro LED Suspended Luminaire, which features independent dimming of the uplight and downlight components, achieves a high luminaire efficacy of 85 lumens per watt (lm/W). Comparable to a 54W T5HO fixture, this design provides a 17 percent reduction in energy with a 7 percent increase in lumens.
o Cooper Lighting's Halo Stasis LED Luminaire, designed for retail, hospitality and commercial spaces, features tight optical control with minimal spill light and multiple patented field-changeable optical distributions including Spot (15 degrees), Narrow Flood (25 degrees) and Flood (40 degrees).
o Cooper Lighting's RSA COMBOLIGHT LED Luminaire is the first airtight, IC-rated multiple-head recessed luminaire that offers one to six heads equipped with 18W LEDs and a double-gimbal design that allows the product to tilt 45 degrees in any direction.
o Cooper Lighting's IRiS® Linear Spread Lens Trim, designed for use in multiple wall wash luminaires including compact fluorescent, halogen and ceramic metal halide sources, utilizes a unique color neutral glass lens technology eliminating the green tint of light found in standard glass. The result is increased optical efficiency with smooth vertical illumination.
o Cooper Lighting's Metalux Accord LED Series, which evenly distributes the perfect amount of "softer" light, is available in two light levels, multiple color temperatures and boasts an efficacy of 88 lumens per watt (lm/W) with a 50,000 hour rated life. A quick disconnect feature allows for simple future LED upgrades.
o Cooper Lighting's Halo H4 LED Adjustable Gimbals, the first small aperture (4-inch) adjustable downlights with the appearance and performance similar to a low voltage MR16 gimbal, features interchangeable reflectors with beam distributions of 25, 35 and 50 degrees, four color temperatures and an adjustable 35-degree tilt.
o Cooper Lighting's Halo 4-inch and 6-inch LED Wall Wash Downlight Trims deliver uniform illumination and are the first residential and commercial grade LED trims of their kind, allowing these trims to be used for both IC and non-IC applications.
o The Cooper Controls advanced Venergy Advanced Metering System is a code compliant energy saving solution, which monitors energy consumption, is easy to use, specify and scalable across any enterprise.
The Progress Report submittals, which include new products, applications, research, publications and design tools, are reviewed by the IES Progress Committee. The committee consists of industry experts from all different aspects of the lighting industry with the mission of keeping in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world. The committee prepares a yearly review of achievements for the Society. Each submittal goes through a judging process and is evaluated for its uniqueness, innovativeness and significance to the lighting industry. Judging is not based on aesthetics, but focuses on and honors technical advancements.
The accepted products were presented at the IES Annual Conference in Austin, Texas this past November. The 2011 IES Progress Report was featured in the January issue of the Society's monthly magazine, Lighting Design + Application (LD+A). The Report is also posted on the IES website and is presented by IES Sections throughout the year at section meetings. To view the accepted products, click here to view the Report.
