MELVILLE, N.Y., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today announced the expansion of its industry-exclusive Zipline™ modular retrofit system with the Zipline LED Platinum Series, an energy management solution for commercial light fixtures that delivers the fastest high performance LED installation on the current market.
Zipline LED affords users performance qualities that rival high-efficiency fluorescent retrofit kits, while installing in just minutes in existing linear fluorescent fixtures, enhancing their appearance, service life and energy efficiency. Virtually maintenance-free and providing more than 50,000 hours at LM80, Zipline LED complies with the Design Lighting Consortium (DLC) for efficiency standards, making it eligible for energy rebates.
"The recent phase out of T12 lamps and ballasts by the Department of Energy and the need to conserve energy make it imperative for commercial institutions to upgrade outdated lighting fixtures with more efficient technology," said Richard Westfall, Vice President and General Manager, Leviton Lighting & Energy Solutions. "Leviton's groundbreaking Zipline LED solution delivers the fastest LED lighting installation available, rivaling T8 lighting and overcoming the many significant drawbacks of other LED retrofit kits."
Available in 2x2 and 2x4 versions, Zipline LED's revolutionary modular design offers unmatched installation efficiency. Compact, integrated pre-wired drivers and array holders mount into the fixture's housing using pressure-fit technology. The system's plug-in edge-lit light arrays simply snap into the fixture, eliminating components and wiring mishaps.
Industry-leading Platinum Series 2x4 models offer 5700 lumens at 60 watts; 2x2 models offer 3400 lumens at 37 watts. To achieve an added measure of energy efficiency, both versions are dimmable using Leviton Renoir® II lighting controls. An optional pre-wired circuit can be used to support emergency backup lighting, daylighting or occupancy detection, affording enhanced safety and upgradeability.
Zipline LED is UL Listed for the United States and Canada and comes with a Five-Year Limited Warranty. For more information on Zipline, visit www.leviton.com/zipline.
