Press release date: Jan 08, 2013

The complete offering of architectural recessed luminaires provides customers with a sustainable solution for exceptional energy savings while delivering up to 103 lumens per watt.

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga., – Cooper Lighting, a leader at the forefront of transforming the lighting industry and setting an unmatched standard for innovation and reliability, is pleased to announce the addition of the Metalux ArcLine™ LED Series to its family of architectural recessed luminaires. This shallow plenum line of 1' x 1', 2' x 2', 2' x 4', and 1' x 4' luminaires blends modern architectural styling with an innovative optical design to deliver leading-edge performance, long life, and energy savings in excess of 45 percent over standard fluorescent troffers. The series is an ideal choice for commercial office spaces, schools, hospitals, and retail merchandising areas where soft, glare-free, ambient illumination is desired.

The Metalux ArcLine LED Series’ advanced optical design generates even light distribution across its fluid profile offering greater light uniformity than most architectural luminaires on the market. The high-performance series is available in 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K correlated color temperatures (CCT) with an 85 CRI, and offers a total of seven lumen package options with an efficacy up to 103 lumens per watt (lm/W), depending on the fixture size. The fully luminous center panel design, which provides the optimal uniform illumination, also inhibits the collection of dusk and debris.

Designed for below ceiling access, the one-piece shallow housing (3.25 inches) with a tool-less hinged door assembly simplifies installation and maintenance. The family of fixtures is compatible with all of today’s popular ceiling systems and available with a number of accessories for greater application versatility.

When compared to a typical two-lamp, 32-watt, T8 fluorescent troffer, the 28-watt ArcLine LED luminaire can provide up to 47 percent in energy savings. Additional energy savings can be achieved when combined with occupancy sensors, daylighting controls, and lighting relay panels from Cooper Controls. The ArcLine LED luminaires are equipped standard with a 0-10V continuous dimming driver that works with any standard 0-10V wallbox driver for dimming down to 15 percent.

Offered with a five-year warranty, the ArcLine LED luminaires are designed to last 50,000 hours at 70 percent lumen maintenance. The series offers universal voltage 120-277V input, 50/60Hz. The fixtures are UL listed for damp location, Insulated Ceiling (IC) rated, DesignLights™ Consortium (DLC) qualified, and RoHS compliant. The LED modules comply with LM-79 and LM-80 standards.
