When fluorescent lighting first came out, a four-foot long lamp and fixture actually measured 48” and an eight-foot lamp 96”. Since 48” equals 4 feet and 96 inches equals 8 feet, planning for installation of a four-foot or an eight-foot fixture was fairly straight-forwards. However, by the late 1990s advancements in fluorescent technologies led to the development of the T5 lamp, which could provide the same amount of light as much larger fixtures, allowing for lower installation costs, and by...

Back in the late nineties we had an idea; we wanted to have a light fixture that could dimly light building areas that were rarely used but would provide full light when that area was occupied, thus lowering building operating costs while maintaining safety. By 1999 our idea had become a reality, and we launched occu-smart® Technology Enhanced Lighting, the first motion sensor-controlled bi-level lighting fixture. Occu-smart® fixtures utilize a proprietary ultrasonic motion sensor coupled with...

  The United Nations has proclaimed 2015 to be the International Year of Light. The global initiative is designed to highlight the key role that light and optical technologies play in daily life. Today, a quarter of the electricity generated worldwide is needed to illuminate factories, office buildings, homes, hospitals, schools and streets. However, many applications still use traditional lightbulbs, which convert only 5 percent of the electricity they receive into light; the rest dissipates...
