Power management company Eaton is aiming to improve the quality and efficiency of lighting in industrial buildings by expanding its range of robust LED luminaires. The new additions to Eaton's comprehensive lighting portfolio are the Tufflite and Linergy LED luminaires. Additionally, its existing Litex family of products has been updated with the addition of next-generation LED technology.
Andy Gallacher, lighting product manager at Eaton, said: "There is huge potential for industrial buildings to increase energy efficiency by switching from older fluorescent or high intensity discharge luminaires to the latest LED technology. This can not only reduce running costs but also saves on maintenance due to its longer lifespan. In warehouses, for example, lighting can account for up to 70 per cent of energy usage, while the figure is around 35 per cent for manufacturing sites. However, while the potential savings are significant, there's also an urgent need to improve the quality of lighting in many industrial buildings, which have traditionally suffered from poor performance in this regard. Better lighting can have a major impact on the general wellbeing, productivity and safety of building occupants. Eaton's latest Linergy, Tufflite and Litex LED luminaires have been purpose-designed to help those responsible for industrial buildings meet these objectives."
Linergy LED follows in the tradition of Eaton's highly efficient large-space luminaires which have the performance and flexibility for today's multi-use and multi-occupancy locations. Incorporating the latest LED light engine technology, the luminaire delivers high lumen outputs and class-leading efficacies of up to 115 lumens per circuit watt (Llm/cW). When combined with the integral occupancy and daylight sensors, this can offer substantial energy savings for the end user.
The versatile Tufflite LED luminaires, with IP66 rated ingress protection, are suitable for areas where protection of the luminaire from environmental effects is vital. Offering a comprehensive range of lumen outputs across three lengths, the versatile LEDs are ideal for new and retrofit applications in warehouses, car parks, assembly areas and loading and storage spaces.
Additionally, Eaton has added new-generation LED options to its Litex range to improve the luminaires' versatility and performance in industrial and warehouse environments. The enhanced Litex LEDs offer a 15 per cent rise in lumen (lm) output and are available with a choice of lumen packages controlled by open area, rack aisle or narrow distribution reflector options. Additionally, the new luminaires are designed to accommodate different mounting heights and installation methods, resulting in a solution that can be tailored to diverse applications.
