Accent/Indirect Suspended LED Luminaire: Introducing arcature6 from aolight

New Product Introduction: arcature6 — energy-saving direct/indirect suspended luminaires, designed to integrate with architecturally designed commercial, institutional interior spaces.

Design: a•light In-House Lighting Design and Engineering Team.

Manufacturer: a•light — an AmerillumBrands company, U.S. manufacturer of energy-saving LED and linear fluorescent lighting exclusively.

Product Applications:  arcature6 delivers comfortable, highly energy-efficient ambient illumination for a broad range of commercial, institutional environments.  These include offices; libraries; schools and universities; upscale retail; hospitals, clinics, laboratories and physician offices; museums and galleries; corridors, offices, reception areas; entertainment, hotels, showrooms and more.  Wherever the need for high-performance lighting coincides with a desire for integrated architectural design and energy conservation.

Product Description:  arcature6 is characterized, and memorable by its slender, low-scale, rectangular, linear design.  arcature6 fixtures are low-profile suspended luminaires with simple, unobtrusive lines.  They are less than two inches high and only 4-1/2 inches across.  Available in eight hairline-seam linkable standard lengths, from three to twelve feet, or in custom lengths or rows. 

The a•cirrus™ lens option presents a “no lamp image” diffusion, in an opal acrylic flat lens. The mere 1-1/2” downlight aperture provides a distinct accent-indirect distribution. An HTLO™, or High Transmission Lamp Obfuscating, lens creates the best of both worlds — a high 93% light transmission with no lamp image and a crystalline silk appearance.

T5 fluorescent lamping is available with a remarkable 82% efficiency. But LED is the ideal option with a choice of outputs allowing maximum lighting design flexibility, whatever the requirement. Only high-performance Nichia LEDs are used. The LED option is available with low, standard or high outputs:  Low output equals 200 lumens/ft at 6 watts/ft.  Standard output equals 1000 lumens/ft. at 14 watts/ft.  High output equals 2000 lumens/ft. at 28 watts/ft. 

A precision-formed proprietary internal reflector design and optimal LED spacing, minimizes any “dot-dot-dot” appearance from LEDs.  Units set new standards for even, high-efficiency, high-color rendition white-light distribution. Color temperatures are available in 3000ºK, 3500ºK or 4000ºK.

arcature6  LED models operate on a 12V DC system with 120V to 277V constant voltage.  Low temperature performance to 40ºC.  A zero to 10V dimming module is available.  Units comply with IESNA LM-79 and LM-80 performance standards.   LED combination lamp/driver is rated for 60,000+ hours, and has a 5-year factory warranty.

LED boards are designed and manufactured in-house using precisely-binned Nichia® diodes on high-quality, aluminum-clad boards designed for maximum heat dissipation.  Appropriate thermal controls ensure proper fixture performance.   The manufacture of a•light’s own boards allows shorter lead times, superior quality control, greater cost-competitiveness, and provides the flexibility to quickly update specifications based on new technology.  All a•light luminaires and LED boards are Made in America, in the company’s own modern plant.

Fixtures suspend from ceilings via single or dual 1-mm stainless-steel aircraft cable with adjustable safety fittings, terminating into square or rectangular canopies, or by rigid stems.  Lamping comprises of single or dual T5 or T5 H.O. producing highly energy-efficient linear fluorescent light.

Construction & Finishes:  arcature6 fixture housings are constructed from high quality, 60% recycled aluminum extrusions, with precision-milled billet aluminum ends.  An alightanium™ low environmental impact powder-coated finish is standard; satin black, satin white, textured eggshell white or other custom colors may also be specified. arcature6 is UL, cUL damp listed standard; Made in America.
