Digital Lumens Expands Intelligent Lighting System Product Line

Digital Lumens, the leader in intelligent lighting systems, today expanded its product line with new 15,000-lumen Intelligent Light Engines (ILEs) for highbay and midbay applications. Designed for industrial facilities with higher ceilings, high foot-candle requirements and/or wider spacing of fixtures, the new systems increase delivered light by more than 50 percent. Available now, the new fixtures feature Digital Lumens' system-wide intelligence, which is proven to maximize energy efficiency and deliver lighting energy reductions of up to 90 percent.

Also unveiled today is the latest version of LightRules, the company's lighting management software, which provides commercial and industrial staff with the flexibility to effectively manage lighting resources. The latest version of LightRules adds new capabilities specifically designed to support large-facility deployments:
• A calendar view for easily scheduling and managing lighting programs and profiles;
• The ability to wirelessly move lights from one network to another to support changes in facility use;
• Data report exports in a number of file types, including csv spreadsheet files, simplifying the measurement and verification phase of utility rebate programs, and supporting ongoing facility management and improvement initiatives;
• Advanced diagnostic tools for monitoring system performance.

"Our global customers have a broad range of environments and evolving lighting requirements, which we are committed to addressing across our Intelligent Lighting Systems," said Michael Feinstein, Digital Lumens' Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "For customers who are building taller facilities, have higher light-level requirements, and those who have extra-large facilities, these latest additions make Digital Lumens the only logical choice for maximizing light while minimizing power use."

Designed specifically for rugged industrial environments, the Digital Lumens Intelligent Lighting System typically replaces 400W HID, HPS or HIF highbay lighting fixtures and reduces lighting energy use by up to 90 percent. Installed as 1:1 retrofits of legacy fixtures and in new construction, the Digital Lumens System is a smart LED lighting solution that delivers unmatched savings and lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) to customers in numerous industries -- cold storage, manufacturing, warehousing and others.
