Renaissance Lighting to Debut World’s Highest-Quality, Commercially Produced SSL Downlight

LIGHTFAIR International 2008 will become center stage when Renaissance Lighting, a pioneering innovator of solid-state LED architectural lighting, introduces the world’s highest-quality commercially available solid-state LED downlight at the Renaissance Lighting booth (#1121) from May 28-30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

As the newest arrival on the general illumination scene, solid-state LED lighting has yet to make a major market impact commensurate with its potential for outperforming and even replacing other types of lighting – at least not until now.

“After unveiling a lower-lumen prototype at LIGHTFAIR International in 2007, we now have the world’s most versatile, highest-lumen solid-state LED downlight,” said Renaissance Lighting CEO, Barry Weinbaum.  “Our fixtures are brighter than ever before, yet require less energy to operate, whether it’s one of our RGB downlights which are capable of 16 million colors, or our 3000k or 4100k white LED products. We believe that industry specifiers will design our fixtures into general illumination applications that solid-state lighting dared not previously address.

“All of Renaissance Lighting’s products are noted for their extremely long and essentially maintenance-free lives, utilizing green technology to make them environmentally friendly. Our customers will discover that Renaissance Lighting’s new initial pricing makes the decision to use our solid-state products an easier one, especially when considering the total cost of ownership.

“Our goal is to be the solid-state downlight of choice, and we have commercial, industrial and high-end residential products to do that now,” Weinbaum continued. “Our solid-state lighting systems support sustainable design while allowing precise control over color and intensity, taking full advantage of what LEDs can do for lighting in today’s dynamic environments.”

Renaissance Lighting’s unique downlight design begins with a circular array of LEDs at the perimeter of an integrating dome inside each fixture. The company’s unique optic design combines light uniformly before exiting the luminaire in glare-free fashion. The result is consistent color production and concealed sources that create smooth, uniform illumination patterns.

A light-sensing feedback system continually monitors and adjusts each luminaire to factory-calibrated color standards to ensure fixture-to-fixture consistency and light quality throughout the 50,000- to 70,000-hour life of the product. The entire combination of innovative features produces the industry’s purest single light source at attractively lower energy consumption levels.

During LIGHTFAIR, visitors to the Renaissance Lighting booth will be able to see the company’s RGB and white LED downlights in both 4-inch and 6-inch aperture formats.  Weinbaum, Renaissance Lighting President Jack Rains and Vice President of Sales Rob McCulley will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss product features and benefits.
