CHICAGO and SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech Lighting, working with Lighting Science Group Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: LSCG), captured a winning spot in the accent track lighting category of the third annual Next Generation Luminaires™ (NGL) Solid-State Lighting Design Competition.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers, the NGL competition was launched in 2008 to promote excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general illumination in commercial lighting applications and make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. Competition judges evaluate products based on a number of factors relating to suitability and quality, as well as energy-efficiency.
"With 328 products submitted and 138 products qualified based on documentation, it's an honor to be one of four winners in the accent lighting category," said Joshua Weiss, Vice President of Product Development for Tech Lighting. "As one of the world's foremost LED illumination experts, we appreciate Lighting Science Group's help in creating the LED module for our high performance track lighting Envision LED Head."
"We are very excited about being Tech Lighting's LED development partner and having a winning product in the NGL competition," said David Henderson, chief development officer of Lighting Science Group. "We applaud the U.S. Department of Energy, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, and the International Association of Lighting Designers for sponsoring a competition that will help increase market acceptance and awareness of LED products for general illumination."
Judges noted the color quality, adjustability and overall design of the LED head. The LED module (offered in 2700 degrees K, 3000 degrees K, and 4000 degrees K), optic (offered in 15 degrees, 25 degrees and 40 degrees) and power supply were designed, built and supplied by Lighting Science Group and are modular for ease of replacement. At 18 watts and 810 net lumens, the head offers a high level of performance. The power supply and heat sink fins all sit within the head resulting in a clean, thoughtful and seamless design. The head is available on Tech Lighting's award winning, 120 Volt T~TRAK lighting system or as a monopoint fixture. Later this year, it will be made available on numerous other track lighting systems.
