Visible Light Solar Expands Vector LED Retrofit Product Family

Visible Light Solar Technologies, a LED and solar lighting technology innovator today introduced three new products in the Vector retrofit line of commercial and industrial lighting applications. Vector recessed downlights, floodlights and in-ground retrofit lighting solutions are available for immediate order and will deliver significant energy and maintenance savings for businesses, municipalities and education facilities.

Designed for customers who want to retain and reuse rather than replace their existing lighting applications, the Vector solutions utilize Cree XLamp® XP-E LEDs. All Vector retrofit applications meet the ENERGY STAR® Program Requirements for Solid State Lighting Luminaires and surpass all applicable requirements of California’s Title 24.

Visible Light Solar is the first lighting company to fully integrate LED lighting devices, solar power technology, advanced power management and control systems in exterior and interior commercial and industrial lighting fixtures. Visible Light Solar’s energy efficient lighting solution are based on its patent-pending SPDI platform which regulates current and voltage levels, provides for a high degree of fixture programmability and, for lighting applications utilizing solar modules, enables seamless switching between battery and grid power for 100% reliability. Visible Light Solar’s LED lighting applications deliver up to 75% energy savings, reduce maintenance costs through long-life LED’s (useful life of 50,000 hours) and provide true-color, highly programmable illumination.

“We’re proud to now offer interior recessed down lighting retrofit solutions; no one should have to tear out their ceiling or replace their existing recessed downlight fixtures in order to achieve the 75% energy reduction that these products promise,” said Dee Dennis, president and CEO of Visible Light Solar Technologies. “With today’s new product offerings, we have the broadest line of industrial-grade LED retrofit products, along with innovative solar/LED solutions, for the commercial and industrial lighting industry. From in-ground and floodlights to recessed downlight interior and exterior lights to parking lot, high bay and canopy lighting, business and industry can quickly reduce energy consumption, safely recycle old lighting parts, and introduce renewable energy creation wherever possible. The fact that we save customers considerable money over the long term makes our Vector retrofit products a true triple bottom line solution.”

LED Recessed Downlight Products:
The Visible Light Solar Vector recessed downlight products are designed for customers looking to retrofit their existing 8”, 10” and 12” recessed downlight HID applications with 100, 150 and 250 watt equivalent solutions. Offering up to a 75% reduction in energy consumption, they are designed to provide 50,000 hours of life with virtually no maintenance and provide true-color, cool white illumination (6000k). The Vector retrofit recessed downlight products fit both lensed and unlensed interior applications as well as exterior soffit and canopy applications.

LED Floodlight Products:
The Visible Light Solar Vector retrofit floodlight solutions fit any 150, 250, 400 or 1,000 watt style HID application, including traditional configurations, regardless of mounting style. In addition to providing up to 75% energy savings, the Vector retrofit floodlights provide true-color illumination for security-sensitive applications where high quality, even illumination is required.

LED In-Ground Lighting Products:
Our retrofit in-ground solutions fit any existing 35 - 150 watt HID up-lighting application including office and public walkways, driveways, decks and patios as well as up-lighting of flags, buildings and trees. In addition to providing up to 75% energy savings, the Vector retrofit line of in-ground solutions provide significant maintenance savings because they utilize vibration resistant LED components rather than fragile HID bulbs which are susceptible to shock during landscape maintenance.
