IES Progress Committee Recognizes Cooper Lighting's Nine Innovative Products

Cooper Lighting, a division of Cooper Industries plc (NYSE: CBE), announces that nine of its Cooper Lighting and Cooper Controls products have been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Committee as providing "an advancement in the art and science of lighting."

The accepted products are part of the 2010 IES Progress Report, which presents significant developments and improvements in the lighting industry over the past year.

  • Cooper Lighting's LED LightBAR™ Technology featuring the patented AccuLED Optics™ system offers an unprecedented variety of photometric options to fulfill the exact needs of an outdoor space.

  • The McGraw-Edison Ventus LED Architectural Area Luminaire utilizes the AccuLED Optics™ system and is offered in two to twelve IP66 rated LightBAR™ configurations with a choice of 15 unique optical distributions delivering uniform and energy-conscious illumination.

  • The 6-inch Halo 1200 LED Downlight Series features retrofitable high-lumen LED dimmable modules available in four color temperatures and designed for use with air-tight housings for sustainable performance.

  • The Halo 4-inch LED Downlight is designed for minimal ceiling presence, while offering the same features as the 6-inch series including the industry's widest offering of color temperatures, and multiple LED trim options/styles and finishes.

  • The Portfolio 4-inch LED Downlight delivers more than 1300 lumens from a small aperture with efficiencies as high as 57 lumens per watt, accomplished in an industry-leading shallow housing of 5-5/8 inches deep.

  • The Lumiere Boca 696 LED In-grade Luminaire uses a 12W LED source available in three color temperatures and three beam spreads with an innovative design allowing 360-degree rotation and +/- 22.5-degree tilt.

  • The Metalux OpticaHP High Performance Parabolic Luminaire features a highly reflective White Optics material and yields a 92.5 percent fixture efficacy, one of the highest in the industry for a 2-foot by 4-foot T8 luminaire of this type.

  • The Ametrix Arrowlinear™ LED Luminaire features an asymmetric linear LED source, available in two light levels, that rivals the output of a T5 fluorescent lamp source (level 1) or that of a T5HO lamp (level 2). Luminaires are available in different single unit lengths, or can be combined to form continuous rows for use indoors or outdoors.

  • The Cooper Controls iLumin SC-RP Switched Relay lighting control panel, which incorporates dimming and switching capabilities in conjunction with real-time power monitoring of each circuit, is the first to use variable relay timing technology that self-adjusts to minimize load inrush current, resulting in extended relay life.

The Progress Report submittals, which consist of new products, applications, research, publications and design tools, are reviewed by the IES Progress Committee, whose mission is to keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world and prepare a yearly review of achievements for the Society. The committee is made up of industry experts from all different aspects of the lighting industry. Each submittal goes through a judging process and is evaluated for its uniqueness, innovativeness and significance to the lighting industry. Judging is not based on aesthetics, but focuses on and honors technical advancements.

The accepted products were presented at the IES Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada, this past November. The 2010 IES Progress Report is featured this month in the January issue of Lighting Design + Application (LD+A), the Society's monthly magazine. The Report is also posted on the IES website and is presented by IES Sections throughout the year at section meetings.
