Cooper Lighting Introduces the World's First Zhaga Certified LED Recessed Luminaire

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga., June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper Lighting, an industry leader committed to delivering innovative products and driving transformational technology in the lighting industry, has announced that its IRiS™ Lighting Systems P3LED directional series is the first in the world to be a Zhaga certified luminaire.

Comprised of more than 190 companies from the lighting industry, Zhaga aims to develop mechanical, photometric, thermal and electronic specifications for interchangeability of LED light sources. Its goal is to achieve interchangeability of LED light sources to reduce cost and risk when developing products while not sacrificing design freedom and creativity. With Zhaga's efforts and certification, new LED light sources will be simpler to integrate and upgrade into existing environments and provide added confidence to end users.

Developed for demanding commercial and residential applications, the P3LED 3-inch aperture LED recessed series combines the flexibility of interchangeable optics with energy savings, long life and the sustainability of LED. The P3LED's unique design allows the light distribution to be modified during construction or years later by changing out the optical elements (trims), which are available in downlight, accent, wall wash and lens solutions. The series is currently available in 3000K CCT, 85 CRI typical (80 CRI minimum) and is designed to last 50,000 hours.

The P3LED features a digital addressable lighting interface (DALI) option to work with Cooper Controls' Fifth Light advanced lighting management control system. The Fifth Light Technology Control and Management System conserves energy, reduces operating costs and improves light quality to maximize a building's performance. The system enables facility management to measure and control energy consumption across individual fixtures as well as provide for the integration and control of other building management systems across multiple applications.

The IRiS P3LED has recently been honored and recommended for specification in the fourth annual Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Competition. The prestigious NGL competition recognizes and promotes excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED commercial lighting luminaires.
