Date Announced: 24 Jan 2011 Optimum Blend of Performance, Affordability, and Fully Field-Serviceable LED ModulesRedwood City, Calif. (January 18, 2011) – Lunera® Lighting, Inc. a Silicon Valley company that designs, manufactures, and markets next-generation LED lighting, announced today the commercial availability of the 1200 Series Grid Lay-in Fixture. The energy efficient, dimmable, backlit luminaire provides high quality and affordable commercial lighting.The backlit design with removable LED modules for field serviceability enables easy upgrades, increasing the return on the initial fixture investment. Lunera’s LED technology and precision engineering achieves an optimal balance of energy savings, efficacy, and consistent color.“I believe we have created a very practical fixture solution for commercial LED lighting. The dimmable, backlit 1200 Series is field serviceable to take advantage of upcoming advances in LED efficiency. Through our innovative design, we increased the lumens per watt output and reduced the fixture cost, whichwill accelerate the return on our customers’ energy investment,”commented Karen Owyeung, CEO of Lunera Lighting.Lunera’s approach to design is from the work plane up, ensuring a fixture fits the needs of a space, rather than forcing the space to fit the fixture. The 1200 Series provides high lumens per watt output enabling over 30 foot-candles of quality light at the work plane in typical installations. The fixtures can be placed with 10ft x10ft spacing on 10ft ceilings offering the possibility of fewer fixtures per installation, while bathing the area in warm LED light and further lowering solution costs.In addition to lifetime energy savings, Lunera’s 1200 Series is maintenance free and provides additional HVAC savings. The combination of the dimmable 1200 Series and advanced lighting controls provides even greater energy savings. Lunera uses its proven truLITE™ Color Consistency Process to screen and blend LEDs to ensure a uniform color temperature across all lights in a given installation. Additionally, each fixture is serialized for future color matching.Lunera has designed the housing as a heat sink and powers LEDs below rated limits to ensure 70% of rated lumen output at 50,000 hours (L70). The luminaires offer a five-year warranty, are LM-79 tested and UL listed. The fully recyclable fixtures contain no harmful chemicals and generate less heat than comparable incumbent lighting technologies.About the 1200 SeriesKey Specifications:Color Temperature 3500K 4000K 5000KLumens 3,520 3,490 3,670CRI 83 85 85 R9 38 54 42Efficacy (lumens/watt) 68 70 69Wattage 52 50 53Watts/Sq.Ft. 0.52 0.50 0.53Dimmable Yes, 0-10V ContinuousPower Supply 120-277V, 50/60HzDimensions: 24” length x 24” width x 4” heightEnvironmental Impact:RoHS CompliantMercury and Lead freeFully Recyclable after a 50,000 hour-life (L70)Certifications and Testing:LM-79 TestedUL ListedDry RatedThe 1200 Series is manufactured in the USA and is available immediately.About Lunera LightingLunera Lighting is an award-winning technology innovator leading the transformation from analog to energy-efficient digital LED lighting.
