The new GE LineFit Light LED system is designed as a simple replacement for upgrading fluorescent cabinet and box sign lighting with energy-efficient LED technology — providing 58% to 76% energy savings compared with T12HO fluorescents.
Available in 11 sizes and three color temperatures, the LineFit Light LED offers versatility for a multitude of double-sided signage sizes and styles to improve overall visual aesthetics with bright, uniform light that is virtually maintenance-free.
Utilizing existing fluorescent sockets (R17d) for a quick and easy four-step installation, the GE LineFit Light LEDs can be up-and-running in just minutes per fixture, immediately slashing installation labor time and costs. LineFit Light’s specialized rotating end caps also ensure proper alignment and ultimate light output directed toward the sign face. Unlike fluorescent options that emit light in a 360° pattern, each LED module is optimized to capture otherwise wasted light and redirect it where it is needed toward the illuminated surface of the sign. OptiLens also eliminates striping and shadows on the sign face that can occur with fluorescent tubes. The Lightfit LEDs are rated at 50,000 hours.
Rated at 125 lumens per Watt (LPW), the SafeSite LED High provides up to 26,500 delivered fixture lumens and and is backed by 10-year full-performance. At 18 lbs., the 100-277VAC SafeSite LED High Bay is rated to operate in ambient temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to +65 degrees C and boasts a T5 temperature rating at 50 degres C. The SafeSite High Bay ships standard with 6kV surge protection and is IP66/NEMA4X certified. It's also available with custom in-house designed optics including medium and wide distribution types.
LED SignLight bulbs from Litetronics now offer energy-saving, high-performance retrofit opportunities for ordinary incandescent lamps with medium or intermediate screw-bases in scores of illuminated sign installations. Three models, in a range of fourteen individual LED lamps, are each UL wet-location rated for outdoor as well as indoor sign-lighting applications.
These LEDs fit new or retrofit interior and exterior signs including 24/7, light-sequencing and light-flashing signage; lighting for performance showrooms, stages, theater interiors and theater or casino marquees; interior, exterior destination and directional illuminated signage of all kinds. Shapes match standard S11, S14 and A19 incandescent bulbs, but slash energy consumption and cut replacement costs and maintenance by lasting 25 to 50 times longer, depending on model.Each model has a 25,000 to 50,000-hour operating life, and a three-year factory warranty.
Architectural Area Lighting's (AAL) Pivot combines a high-performance light engine with a lightly diffused lens to eliminate streaks and striations on illuminated surfaces. Offered with wall, pendant or ground mounting, the Pivot provides versatility for indirect lighting, perimeter highlighting, wall grazing, sign lighting, and wall washing. Available in three lengths (2-foot, 4-foot, and 8-foot), each with two lumen packages, the Pivot is equipped to distribute both uplight and downlight.
The Pivot uses the same fixture modules for individual or continuous row applications. AAL's innovative universal rotating hub design allows for all fixtures to be configured by themselves or in continuous lengths for seamless illumination. With an efficacy of up to 94 lumens per watt, the Pivot delivers over 2500 lumens per foot, and offers three standard color temperatures (5,100K, 4,200K or 3,000K). Ideal for both interior and exterior applications, the Pivot operates in temperature ranges from -30 degrees C to 40 degrees C and is wet location approved for exterior use in any orientation. AAL's Pivot has a die-cast and extruded aluminum construction with a powder coast finish available in thirteen standard colors, in addition to custom colors.
