Columbia Lighting introduces MPL Megaplane™ industrial LED high bay/low bay

May 18, 2016
Greenville, SC – Hubbell Lighting, a world leader in lighting innovation, has announced that Columbia Lighting has launched its latest LED industrial luminaire, the MPL Megaplane™ Industrial LED High Bay/Low Bay.

The MPL, a linear suspended luminaire that has been designed primarily for retail, design-build, back of house, warehouse and commercial storage applications, is the first of its kind in the industrial category.

Traditionally, products in this class with comparable lumen output were only available in larger housings or included more than one driver, adding cost and bulk. The simplicity of the MPL's design will be appealing to contractors and specifiers who have been asking for a low-cost, high-efficiency luminaire with directional illuminance that is slender, attractive and functional without appearing bulky.

"The MPL Megaplane features patented TIR directional linear optics that offer superior aisle lighting performance and vertical foot candles," said Columbia Lighting's Director of New Product Innovation, Martin Werr. "The modern appearance compliments retail store designs, and it is facility-friendly for ease of installation and maintenance."

A 4’ configuration can exceed 12,000 lumens only consuming 96 watts, averaging 106 to 131 lumens per watt with one driver. An 8’ configuration can exceed 25,000 lumens while only consuming 192 watts, averaging 106-131 lumens per watt with two drivers.
