INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Horner Lighting Group receives recognition for two products in the 2013 Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Outdoor Competition. Awards were presented February 26 at the Strategies in Light conference in Santa Clara, CA. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers, the NGL awards recognize excellence in energy-efficient LED commercial lighting design.
The Horner CP80 Remote Phosphor Canopy Lighting fixture received recognition in the "Canopy Lighting" category. This fixture uses silicone remote phosphor engine modules to create a light pattern that matches traditional "under canopy" fixtures - producing 80 CRI and approximately 15% up-light to eliminate "cave effect." The light source also reduces glare and provides a pleasing, familiar light appearance. The fixture can be opened without tools for easy installation and maintenance. Dimming can be accomplished with Triac, 0-10V, or PWM signals on a wired or wireless network.
The NGL awards also recognized the Horner A200H fixture in the "Parking & Area Lighting" category. The A200H contains red- and blue-enhanced LEDs that blend together behind the phosphor plate to emit an efficient, long-life, high CRI output. The unit features an optional 2.4GHz integrated wireless control module that can turn the unit on or off, dim from 5-100%, monitor temperature, and connect to motion or ambient light sensors. The fully adjustable fixture – both head tilt and "wing" adjustments – direct light where needed without having to order additional fixtures or options.
A total of 102 products were submitted to the 2013 NGL outdoor competition. From these 81 were approved to continue to the judgment phase with 26 products identified as "Recognized," meaning that they were considered worthy of specification in the application for which they were designed. NGL entries are evaluated by a panel drawn from the architectural lighting community and are judged on lighting quality, appearance, serviceability, efficacy, value, and dimming.
