LumenFocus Introduces New Versatile, Vapor-Tight EVT Linear Light, Suitable for Many Applications

The EVT is a new vaportight offering from LumenFocus with a unique and innovative design. The lens and housing is one extruded piece, with gasketed end caps on both ends. This distinctive construction makes the EVT suitable for many commercial, industrial and institutional applications – including warehouses, manufacturing facilities, food processing facilities, stairwells and car washes.

The acrylic co-extruded lens and housing is (f1) rated, meaning it has met UL 746C requirements for water exposure or immersion. The (f1) rating also means the EVT is suitable for outdoor use.

The EVT is available in 2-foot, 4-foot and 8-foot lengths. Each length can be purchased in one of three lumen output packages, with performance ranging from 1,930 in the 2-foot "VL" package up to nearly 8,600 in the 8-foot "MD" package. Color temperature options are 3500K, 4000K and 5000K. High performance LED boards are mounted on a pre-painted cold rolled steel tray. The EVT is UL approved and evaluated for daisy chaining.

Multiple hanging options are available for easy installation – including surface, chain/cable or pendant mounting. The mounting hardware is made of stainless steel.

An easy-to-use Snap-On Bracket comes standard on the EVT and is used for surface mounting. Selecting the Bracket Bail (SMBB) option allows for chain and cable mounting. The SMBB can be purchased with a 10- or 20-foot Quick Hang Cable Kit. An optional Safety Bail provides added security for the mounting.

An optional microwave occupancy sensor will help maximize energy savings. The sensor is also available with 0-10V dimming.

The EVT boasts a predicted L70 lifetime of greater than 100,000 calculated hours (72,000 reported hours). It comes with a five-year limited system warranty.

The EVT is made in America – every unit is manufactured out of LumenFocus' Henderson, NC facility. Specific EVT configurations are DesignLights Consortium qualified. These configurations can be viewed online at The EVT is UL 1598 listed for US and Canada and is suitable for wet locations. Other certifications include: IP65, IP66, NSF and RoHS.

The EVT utilizes LumenFocus' concept of Re-BoardABILITY: All LED boards and drivers are field replaceable in just a few minutes. As LED technology continues to rapidly improve in the future, customers may want to upgrade their boards and drivers to ensure their lights are as efficient as possible. LumenFocus luminaires are designed to allow customers easy access to remove and upgrade boards and drivers. This helps to ensure that customers don't get stuck with obsolete lighting equipment.
