LEDs Magazine Recognized More than 50 Products with BrightStar Awards

“This year’s program saw an exciting variety of submission form factors, but many of them had noteworthy qualities or trends in common, such as modularity or flexible footprint for fixtures and the replacement potential of components,” said Carrie Meadows, LEDs Magazine editor-in-chief. “The judges also commented frequently on simplified installation — including tool-less designs — and easier commissioning capabilities with the highest-scoring entries, reflecting the need to reduce labor time and costs.”
