Digital Lumens Expands Intelligent Lighting System With Interactive Facility Maps, What-If Analysis, and Baseline ReportingNew 13,000-Lumen Intelligent LED Fixture Delivers Even Greater Lighting Energy Savings (May 23, 2012)
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/23/12 -- Digital Lumens, developer of the market-leading Intelligent LED Lighting System, today announced LightRules 2.0 and a new 13,000-lumen intelligent fixture. Designed for a broad range of high bay industrial lighting applications -- manufacturing, warehousing, cold storage, maintenance depots, hangars, and others -- the Intelligent LED Lighting System's expanded capabilities give facility managers a broader set of tools for managing lighting resources, and greater fixture flexibility when replacing aging HID and HIF lights, or specifying LEDs for new construction.
LightRules 2.0 Improves Lighting Control and Insight
LightRules 2.0, the latest version of the Digital Lumens lighting management software, offers an enhanced set of management, reporting and analysis capabilities, including interactive facility mapping, 'what-if' analysis, and baseline reporting for evaluating lighting scenarios. These are in addition to the daylight harvesting capabilities and other scheduling and reporting capabilities already in LightRules.
- Interactive facility mapping uses the building floor plan as a visual framework for managing the lighting system, showing image gradients to highlight fixture use, occupancy patterns, and daylight harvesting usage;
- 'What-if' analysis tools evaluate the impact of different settings -- timeouts, dimming -- on overall lighting energy use and cost;
- Baseline measurements are used to understand the lighting energy costs of the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System vs. legacy lighting alternatives (HID/HIF) or plain LED alternatives.
"LightRules 2.0 gives facility managers the simplest and most powerful way to manage their lighting resources for maximum efficiency," said Michael Feinstein, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Digital Lumens. "Our customers have gone from having a breaker switch and a large power bill to having the LightRules dashboard, direct access to all lighting performance information, and minimal lighting bills. Now, with interactive facility maps and other enhancements, LightRules is more powerful and intuitive to use -- giving customers even greater value."
New 13,000-Lumen Fixture
The new 13,000-lumen intelligent LED high bay fixture features three fully aimable and dimmable LED light bars, integrated sensors that assess ambient daylight harvesting and occupancy, the signature Digital Lumens integrated intelligence, and an IP65 washdown rating. As with the 18,000- and 26,000-lumen fixtures, the 13,000-lumen versions are available with narrow or wide optics, and have a color temperature of 5,000K. The Digital Lumens intelligent LED fixtures carry UL, CE and NOM listings on the entire fixture, and feature a 5-year warranty.
