Lumen Optix introduces "LRD" LED downlight luminaire for retrofit applications

May 16, 2012
Date Announced: 16 May 2012 Montgomeryville, PA – LumenOptix, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative retrofit lighting solutions, proudly announces the introduction of its revolutionary new, American-made LED Retrofit Downlight Luminaire, or “LRD,” a unique and modular LED retrofit solution that enables a downlight of any make, model or size to enjoy an upgrade in just minutes to energy-efficient, maintenance-free LED technology.Ideal for atriums, lobbies, airports, auditoriums and most other retrofit applications where downlights are used, the LRD delivers up to 70% energy savings and secures to the existing, installed rough-in kit via its patent-pending modular bracket system. As a function of its efficient optics and proprietary LED reflector design, the LRD offers outstanding visual acuity, optimized cut-off, precise beam control, exceptional light quality and consistent and glare-free light distribution.Sporting a long rated life of 50,000 hours (L70), the highly sustainable LRD is free of environmental hazards such as mercury and has provisions for dimming capabilities down to 10% via 0-10V or line dimming (if control gear is already installed into the existing fixture). Best of all, the LRD fixture can be easily installed into existing wired rough-in kits from below the ceiling in just minutes without the need for tools, cutting or mess, significantly reducing labor costs and concerns.“Through our innovative new LRD fixture, we’re proud to offer the nation’s lighting users an easy and all-purpose way of upgrading most any downlight to the benefits of LED technology,” LumenOptix Founder and CEO Jay Goodman said. “Following the LRD’s simple five-minute installation process, lighting users can begin to enjoy up to 70% energy savings, long life and years of maintenance-free operation while supporting the worthy principles of green design and American-based manufacturing. Most importantly,” he added, “the ‘light’ is what matters at LumenOptix, and our optical systems – from glare control and beam pattern to the low iridescent finish on our optics -- are engineered to the highest standards without compromise to the quality of the light.”Proudly manufactured in America, the LRD is American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA)- and Buy American Act-compliant and is available in a variety of color temperatures and lumen outputs to support nearly any downlight application.
