Amerlux Plans Eye-Popping Demonstrations for LightFair

May 15, 2019

Chuck Campagna knows that seeing is believing.

And that’s why Amerlux will provide special demonstrations at LightFair 2019 so the industry can truly experience its solutions.

As a game-changer, Amerlux’s new Rook 3.5" Square Pendant will showcase the 100 CRI chip, which is the first LED to achieve a 100 CRI rating that renders color (warm or cool tones) to their most natural. As a result, natural color and skin tones have never looked so good.

“At Amerlux, lighting isn’t something you see; it’s something that you feel,” said Campagna, Amerlux’s CEO and president. “Our new square Rook LED fixture with 100 CRI creates an unforgettable experience that translates the deepest colors and crispest whites into emotion. Through innovation, we moved the ability to render colors in their highest natural state indoors.”

Amerlux will showcase the new square lighting solution, as well as it new lineup of solutions, at LightFair 2019 (Booth #5837). Demonstrations will be held during the conference across the street at Le Meridien Philadelphia, located at 1421 Arch Street.

Here’s a closer look at other planned demonstrations at LightFair 2019:

Hip to be Square? New-Look Rook Wows

Amerlux’s Rook 3.5" Square Pendant is a versatile solution for open ceilings as a surface-mount pendant or a pendant with a remote driver.

Amerlux products address four important demands from the marketplace:

  • Color - The striking Rook 3.5" Square Pendant is warm and welcoming, yet square and modern. Ideal for retail and commercial ambient/task lighting, the fixture offers a range of color temperatures (i.e. 2200K, 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K). It also delivers 83 CRI and 90+ CRI with full gamut LED chips available.
  • Comfort - The Rook 3.5" Square Pendant is offered in 11W, 14W, 16W, 18W and 21W options. The lumen output includes 1,305 lm and 1,732 lm, while CBCP spans from 4,763 to 12,503.
  • Control - Beam spread options include spot (15 degrees), narrow flood (22 degrees), medium flood (25 degrees), flood (28 degrees), wide flood (45 degrees), very wide flood (60 degrees) and linear spread (60 degrees x 10 degrees) for the fixture’s SD version. In addition, a Satin Ice Lens, which provides maximum source concealment and wide distribution with a visually “hotter” aperture (75 degree spread), is available; a Solite Lens offers maximum efficacy and a visually quieter aperture with 30-degree, 50-degree and 65- degree beam spread options.
  • Configuration - Dimming options include TRIAC, ELV (120V/277V), 0-10V and Lutron Hi-lume H Series/Eco System (120V/277V).

New Track Light System Creates Options for Designers, Architects

Amerlux’s Slots and Dots is an easily configurable track light system that creates visual ambience for hospitality and retail environments. It offers clean, compact styling, which ensures it looks good in any environment. The one-inch-wide track features magnetic attachments, so light sources can be easily snapped in and out as needed. With this track system, it’s a cinch to change the lighting in a room between events.

Available light attachments include accent track heads, a pendant accent and four different linear options, with lensed sources for ambient light and high-performance optics for direct light. The track comes in 12-foot, 4-foot and 2-foot lengths, which join together for clean lines of light or a variety of whimsical compositions.

Recessed Panel Turns Ceilings into Canvas

Co-developed with world-renown architecture firm Gensler Associates, the new Etch 2'x2' recessed ceiling panels present a clean aesthetic with evenly lit, premium LEDs, bathing open spaces with smooth, ambient light. The new lighting solutions delivers a sense of architectural style to an area, unlike traditional drop-ins that have the look and feel of commodity-grade products.

Standard, unadorned 2'x2' Etch panels deliver a skylight. Each 2'x2' regressed flat panel is offered in 23W, 31W or 39W with lumen outputs up to 4350. Etch is also available with an opaque beam element located off-center within the fixture, which creates bold patterns that transverse the entire ceiling. In addition, the beam element delivers accent or task lighting with the back panel fully lit or dimmed.

Etch is constructed with a metal frame, which houses an LED edge-lit panel with a center element. A wide range of performance perimeters are available through the choice of different models. An off-center extruded aluminum element, for example, adds contrast and a location for two accent downlights. (Amerlux provides options for many of its products; check out the short list.)

The custom-design, back-lit ambient panel is available in two color temperatures (3000K and 3500K), providing an outstanding color quality (83 CRI).

Etch’s standard integral electronic constant current 120V-to-277V driver offers zero-to-10V dimming capabilities.  Like most Amerlux products, it can pair with any controls, including the Luton Hi-Lume and DALI dimming controls.

PoE-Ready Products Shine at LightFair 2019

Amerlux will offer a glimpse into its first generation of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) lighting solutions that will fundamentally change the way the industry thinks about configuration and controls.

With this new technology, power will run through the same Category 5 enhanced cabling (CAT5e) as data, turning lighting into an IT matter.

Amerlux will showcase several PoE-ready products, such as Rook, Etch as well as its Hornet HP Downlights at LightFair 2019 (Booth #5837), which runs from May 20-23 in Philadelphia. Demonstrations will be held during the conference across the street at Le Meridien Philadelphia, located at 1421 Arch Street.

“PoE creates a lighting network that connects power to computer to switchbox to module to fixture,” Campagna said. “The upfront investment will be funded through realized savings in controls and labor. As a company built on innovation, Amerlux will continue to listen and exceed the needs of the marketplace.”
