Texas A&M selects Infinilux Solid State Low Bay light for parking structure

Nov. 8, 2009
Date Announced: 08 Nov 2009 Carson, California and College Station, TX -– Texas A&M has selected the Infinilux, Inc. new light emitting-diode (LED) solid state low bay light for the university’s first SSL feasibility demonstration. The trial installation of the LB36 was selected to help Texas A&M meet energy conservation goals and lower the environmental impact of the campus-parking program. The demo installation is drawing less than 0.1W/sq-ft max, 68% below the ASHRAE target of 0.3W/sq-ft, and will provide a reduction in overall power consumption of over 65%.Texas A&M is an environmentally conscious university of over 45,000 students, faculty and staff. The new lighting project will offer a number of benefits for the university as well as for the environment. If fully implemented, the reduction in energy consumption will be the equivalent of removing 767,000 tons of CO2 from the environment or taking 234 cars off the roads permanently. The improvement in lighting quality will increase driver and pedestrian safety by lowering glare and providing a more uniform light distribution over the legacy 150W HPS lights.The reduction in maintenance cycles will also provide a tangible savings for the university as the Infinilux LED low bay units have an expected maintenance cycle exceeding 50,000 hours (70,000 hours to L70 at Ta=25°c). The driver section is UL listed and has integrated, auto-recovery over-voltage, transient (ANSI C62.41 Class A) and short/overload protection. The entire driver section of the LB36 is “plug and play” serviceable, and requires no special tools or fixtures for field service. “The inherently environmentally friendly nature of Infinilux’s solid state lighting (SSL) technologies combined with the reduction of traditional maintenance costs creates a win-win for both the environment and Texas A&M.” Said Anthony Vilgiate, Infinilux Vice President. “We are very pleased with what we are seeing so far in the demo-installation,” said Doug Williams, Associate Director, Transportation Services. “The installation took less than two hours, and the difference was immediate and clear with much better light quality and uniformity.”About Infinilux, Inc.Infinilux, a Cree LED Solutions Provider, designs and manufactures high performance lighting products that can be used worldwide in high-profile applications within the architectural, public spaces, theater lighting, retail, residential, landscape, signage, entertainment, hospitality, fine arts, and commercial markets.
