Nexxus Lighting unveils 2nd generation Array LED replacement lamps
CHARLOTTE, NC -- Nexxus Lighting, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEXS) today announced the production of its 2nd generation Array™ Lighting line of products.
In addition to its new Par 38, the Gen2 R30 and R16 are now available to order in an expanded color temperature offering (adding 2700° Kelvin) and improved color rendering indexes exceeding 80 CRI. Both of the new Gen2 product lines are UL listed, can be ordered in either architectural white or custom black housings and will feature the new Lighting Facts label on the packaging.
Lighting Facts is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to assure the consistency of information about, and therefore improve the quality of, LED lighting products. Participation is open to those who manufacture, sell, and recommend the best in LED lighting. The Lighting Facts label provides a standard format for listing key performance elements.
Third party LM-79 testing has already been completed for the new Gen2 R30 and those reports, along with required IES files and LM-80 test data on the LEDs, can now be downloaded from the Nexxus Lighting website at www.nexxuslighting.com or the Array Lighting website at www.arraylighting.com.
Nexxus Lighting is an ENERGY STAR Partner and the 2700K and 3000K Gen2 line of R30 and R16 LED replacement lamps has been designed and tested to meet the new ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Integral LED lamps. Nexxus plans to submit these lamps to ENERGY STAR for review prior to the end of August 2010. The ENERGY STAR standard for Integral LED lamps is scheduled to become effective August 31, 2010.
Nexxus has also added a GU24 base to its R30 and Par38 offering. This enhancement is designed for retrofit applications where energy conservation measures and incentives are tied to eliminating the ability to screw in a less efficient medium base lamp in the future.
“As a company focused on providing the highest quality, specification grade LED replacement lamps in the industry, we are very excited about rolling out our 2nd Generation designs to the commercial lighting market,” stated Mike Bauer, President and CEO of Nexxus Lighting. “By exceeding performance expectations, our products have generated tremendous feedback from the market. By making third party testing and data available, including LM-79, LM-80, IES files and Lighting Facts Labels on new products, customers can be assured they are getting the quality products they expect from Nexxus Lighting.”
