Date Announced: 13 Nov 2008 SUNNYVALE, Calif. and SAVANNAH, Ga. - LUXIM Corp. today launched the LIFI(R) STA-40 Series, the award-winning solid state plasma light sources for street, area, architectural and industrial lighting applications. According to Tony McGettigan, CEO of LUXIM, "LIFI(R) light sources have been designed with luminaire makers and lighting designers in mind by providing a directional, dimmable, clean lighting solution with high efficiency and high color rendering options. As a result, installations are replacing high-wattage conventional HID lamps with LIFI(R) light sources and achieving electric power savings of more than 40%." Two product options are available. The first is LIFI(R) STA-40-01 with efficacy up to 120 lumens-per-watt and ideal for street and area lighting. This product won the Lightfair Innovation Award at its introduction in May of this year. The second is LIFI(R) STA-40-02 with color rendering up to CRI-96 and suitable for architectural applications. Fixture manufacturers can now offer municipalities street lights that have high efficiency, full-cut-off for dark sky requirements and dimming on command during the late hours to save additional energy and extend lifetime.In another example, high-bay retail installations can improve the color rendering of goods for sale while reducing the size and weight of the overall fixture. "We had a very positive response to our lighting fixture exhibition." says John Bowers, President of Pemco Lighting which showcased a prototype fixture using LIFI(R) STA-40-01 at the IES Street and Area Lighting Conference last month. "As a result, we are designing new optical and mechanical components to take full advantage of LIFI(R) technology for outdoor lighting." Samples of LIFI(R) STA-40 Series light sources are available now alongside recently introduced product lines targeted at entertainment and instrument lighting.
