by U. S. Architectural Lighting
U. S. Architectural Lighting’s new Beyond Bollard features an outdoor LED system designed for area and pathway lighting, safety, and security. Its robust performance makes it ideal for use in parks, city squares, shopping malls, and on exterior commercial buildings.
With its advanced optics and PLED options, it provides high-level performance not only in delivered footcandles, but also in available distributions. The PLED system can deliver more than 5000 lumens. Each PLED optical module produces a crisp, uniform light that eliminates shadows and scalloping in pathway applications.
U.S. Architectural Lighting offers the Beyond Bollard with lens options to allow for many different illumination appearances—from diffuse and low glare to high performance wide coverage. All the optional lenses are high impact, UV stable acrylic. While a typical bollard is 42 in. height, the Beyond Bollard offers the flexibility of the standard 42 in. bollard to an 80. In. column with the option of any height from 2 in. to 8 in.
LEDVANCE launched LEDVANCE LINK, a wireless connected lighting solution that is simple, flexible, and cost-effective with LEDVANCE LINK Bluetooth Mesh technology.
This solution makes networked lighting control quick and easy, which helps save labor, materials, and time. It offers the convenience and energy efficiency of the latest lighting solutions without the hassle and expense of additional wiring or complicated gateways.
Using a few key components, LEDVANCE LINK lighting control solution can be tailored to the needs of customers. As spaces and layouts change, the LEDVANCE LINK system can change with them, often, without needing to call in an installer. For new installations, there are network-ready, connected luminaires. For retrofits, there are field installable, plug and play controllers, sensors, and accessories for a wide range of compatible luminaires.
Provision, configure, and control the system via the LEDVANCE LINK smartphone app with a smartphone or wireless wall switch.
PrimaLine Tape Lights by Alloy LED
Alloy LED increased the maximum run lengths of its high-quality PrimaLine tape lights up to 82’. Featuring a circuit design, the tape lights maintain the same brightness level throughout the length of the tape, from the beginning to the end of the run.
In addition to the high light quality from end to end, the extended run lengths save electricians installation time and money—up to 50%—by reducing the need for multiple drivers and power leads.
Ideal for larger coves, hallways, retail displays, and other long-run applications, the new pioneering design is being introduced on Alloy LED’s most popular PrimaLine DC tape lights, including the PrimaLine 1.5 (12V and 24V), PrimaLine 3 (12V and 24V), and the PrimaLine 1.5 XT and 3 XT long run tape lights. The tape lights are field-cuttable, dimmable, and compatible with Alloy LED’s AmpChamp connectors for secure, maintenance-free connections.
