LED lighting provider aeternusLED included in DLC Qualified Products List

March 6, 2014
LED lighting solutions newcomer aeternusLED® grabbed top honors in the 2x2 luminaire for ambient lighting of interior commercial spaces category. Validating company claims, aeternusLED’s inclusion on the QPL in their first year while out distancing competitors in key criteria tested in the 2x2 category, launches them on a remarkable trajectory.

LED lighting solutions company, aeternusLED®, based in Blacksburg, VA, has entered the scene and put up some very impressive results while doing so. The aeternusLED® Dolfin II Series LED 2x2 luminaire set the mark for the category 2x2 luminaire for commercial spaces while emerging with best results in all measured criteria, including efficacy, light output, reliability, and lifetime. The now DLC certified aeternusLED Dolfin II series is offered in lumen packages producing 2,448 to 5,498 delivered lumens, from 22 to 55 watts used thus achieving an efficiency between 99.9 and 109 lumens per watt. aeternusLED luminaires are available with a wide range of color temperature options though tested at 4,000K. The certified L70 lifetime at 140,000 hours allows the aeternusLED Dolfin II series to be sold with an industry leading 10 Year Warranty. These factors combine to allow aeternusLED to stand alone at the top in this category.

With the results now on DLC’s Qualified Products List, aeternusLED® Dolfin II Series LED 2x2 luminaire bested all criteria. The QPL results validates the results from all the third party testing performed by accredited safety and performance laboratories. Every inch of the aeternusLED systems is patent pending technology, and the sum of the system parts as a whole unit, are what generate the results sought by many but unlocked by aeternusLED. The resulting light is glare free with no shadows and 162 degree light distribution. The reflective dome makes all this possible with the use of 98% reflective white optics and our custom lens material. Gary W Engelhardt developed the concept for the Dolphin II series troffer in 2012 and is focusing on the development of new technology to ensure aeternusLED will always be an industry leader that is truly “Made in the USA”.

What does the jargon mean for building owners, facility managers, and those responsible to lead green energy initiatives? AeternusLED luminaries last 2-3 times longer than many other LED products currently on the market, making the maintenance savings as valuable as the sought after energy reduction. Not only does AeternusLED have a corner on longevity but because of their higher efficacy, greater amounts of electricity are saved over longer periods of time without lamps, ballast or fixture replacements. The 10 year maintenance free warranty demonstrates aeternusLED’s plan to reach commercial sectors with high quality lighting products.
