Kim Lighting's ArcheType X Family of Customer Defined Variable Distribution Offerings Now Complete

Greenville, SC – Hubbell Lighting, a global leader in lighting innovation, announced that Kim Lighting has launched its new ArcheType X Site/Area LED luminaire. The Site/Area luminaire will join the Flood and Wall to complete a full suite of products that provide lighting designers with user-defined light distributions for outdoor lighting, an industry first.

"The ArcheType X family gives lighting designers what they have always wanted – the ability to optimize performance and control through variable distributions," said Dean Dal Ponte, vice president brand management for Kim Lighting. "When we introduced 'LEAR' Light Engine Adjustable Ready technology in 2015, we coined the term 'Type X distribution.' This technology empowers a designer to put light where it is needed. Equally important, light is excluded from where it's not wanted."

The ArcheType X Site/Area LED luminaire has independently adjustable LED modules with 355° rotation and 70° of tilt independent of the luminaire, allowing the fixture to be configured to any standard or custom distribution, either at the factory or in the field. The luminaires are available in packages from 5,140 to 39,200 plus lumens.

AGi32's Design Isolines feature allows for virtual aiming of the luminaires according to the needs of the outdoor lighting project, concentrating light to highlight traffic lanes, pathways or walls, while minimizing boundary lighting trespass and obtrusive glare, all without the need for external louvers, shields, additional poles and luminaires. Once the virtual layout is created, the aiming information is sent to Kim Lighting vie IES file format and the luminaire is configured to meet the project's unique lighting requirements.

The features and benefits of the new ArcheType X Site/Area include:
• 3 sizes: ARX09, ARX16 and ARX25
• Lensed or non-lensed options in packages from 5,140 to 39,200+ lumens
• Standard IES Type 1-5, L, R or user-defined Type X Distributions
• 0-70° tilt and 355° of independent module rotation independent of the luminaire
• IP66 rated LEAR modules contain 6 LEDs
• Design ease with AGi32 software
• Type X Distributions quickly and easily translated to Kim Lighting via traditional IES file format
• Customer defined Type X Distributions configured and verified at the factory.
• Unique luminaire catalog number and package labeling for exact field identification
• NEW Titanium color finish and standard Light Gray, Black, Dark Bronze, Platinum Silver, White and Custom finishes

The ArcheType X's LEAR technology has already received industry recognition, having won a PIA from Architectural Products Magazine and IES Progress Report in 2015.
