Nov 14, 2011, 10:33 ET from Columbia Lighting

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Lighting introduces epoc® LED, its first LED luminaire with solid-state electronics from Universal Lighting Technologies. epoc® LED bridges the gap between energy savings and light quality by achieving high-efficacy illumination with environmentally conscious construction. LED is one of the most efficient lighting technologies of the twenty-first century and Columbia Lighting combines it with one of its most popular full distribution designs.

epoc® LED is carefully tuned using precise standards to maintain superior color consistency within each fixture, from fixture to fixture, and throughout its lifetime. The luminaires are passed through our custom-designed test booth where each receives a unique QR code capturing its exact initial color, lumen rating, and module serial number. This stringent process assures the utmost quality and the most traceability available in LED lighting today.

epoc® LED is testimony to Columbia Lighting's commitment to energy savings and sustainability. Constructed from 70% recycled steel, epoc® LED has a 50,000-hour, mercury free lamp life. Conserving natural resources and sustaining the environment received the utmost consideration throughout the design and production process. epoc® LED is available in two lumen output configurations providing a reduced energy consumption when higher light levels are not required.

epoc® is easily serviced with a hinged optical system and plug-and-play LED modules that can be upgraded as improvements in solid-state technology evolve. It is also compatible with a variety of controls including occupancy sensors and dimmers designed to employ the latest in energy saving practices.

Designers for schools, office buildings and other general illumination applications now have an exceptional option in emerging lighting technology. epoc® LED full distribution luminaires are the ideal choice.
