Fulham To Debut New 70W HotSpot Plus™ LED/Emergency Combo Drivers at LightFair 2018

New HotSpot Plus 70S Newest Addition to Fulham Line of Compact, Universal Voltage LED and Emergency Drivers that Can Be Installed Almost Anywhere.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham, a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that it will introduce the HotSpot Plus™ 70S universal voltage 70W LED / 7W emergency combination driver at LightFair 2018 next week. The HotSpot Plus 70S is Fulham’s newest compact LED driver to support both conventional and emergency lighting in one, easy-to-install unit.

Featuring some of the most advanced power supply technology in the lighting industry, the HotSpot Plus 70S is comparable in size to non-emergency 70W LED drivers. The Hotspot Plus 70S was developed for installers and OEMs looking for a highly reliable, universal LED driver that would meet state and city safety requirements in a single, compact, all-in-one LED driver. Ideal for luminaire manufacturers where LED driver space is limited, the HotSpot Plus 70S has the smallest form factor available and features universal 120-277VAC input with a maximum of 70W output (programmable constant current output of 350mA – 2400mA /11-55VDC), which means customers can stock a single LED driver for a broad range of fixtures. The total product size of the 70S, including the 14.4Wh battery, is 1.18 inches wide and 1 inch high, with an overall length of 16.71 inches.

For emergency lighting, the HotSpot Plus 70S features 1W to 7W programmable constant power emergency output that can provide up to 90 minutes of runtime at 7W with a replaceable LiFePO4 battery. The HotSpot Plus has a 12-hour battery recharge time and comes with a red/green self-diagnostic indicator to simplify maintenance and troubleshooting.

“The lighting market is changing rapidly so we developed our line of HotSpot Plus products to support both conventional and emergency lighting needs in one LED driver package. This results in the smallest solution possible with less inventory and faster installation because of the reduced wiring,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director, LED Emergency and Advance R&D, for Fulham. “The compact design, wide output voltage, and programmability allow Fulham customers to use the HotSpot Plus in almost any new or retrofitted lighting fixture.”

Like all HotSpot Plus units, the HotSpot Plus 70S features 0-10V dimming (1-100 percent) and it can be quickly programmed using Fulham’s SmartSet handheld programmer or SmartSet PC software. The HotSpot 70S will be CEC Title 20 compliant, UL LISTED, CE and ENEC certified. The HotSpot Plus 70S comes with Fulham’s five-year warranty.

Fulham’s HotSpot Plus LED/emergency drivers will be on display at LightFair 2018 in Booth 602. For more information, visit http://www.fulham.com.

Hong Kong, China — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, will demonstrate its newest LED lighting products for OEMs, distributors, and lighting professionals at this week’s Hong Kong International Lighting Fair. Included among the Fulham products on display will be the LumoSeries LED drivers, the HotSpot Plus LED and emergency lighting drivers, and the customizable Quik Custom linear LED drivers. Fulham will be exhibiting in booth 1C-C02.

“Asia is a growing market for next-generation lighting systems,” said Stephen K. Ho, Vice President of Sales for Hong Kong/APAC for Fulham. “The Hong Kong Light Fair gives us an opportunity to expand our regional market penetration by showing OEMs, wholesalers, and distributors what makes Fulham’s LED products more versatile and cost-effective.”

Developed at the new Fulham European Design Centre in the Netherlands, the LumoSeries are the company’s newest LED drivers designed to be adaptable for various lighting applications. The drivers have low inrush current so more drivers and luminaires can operate on a single circuit, reducing the cost of wiring and installation. The LumoSeries drivers also have adjustable output currents, and their compact design makes them ideal for use in any manufacturer’s luminaries. The LumoSeries drivers are offered in both constant current and constant voltage models, including dimmable and DALI versions.

Fulham’s HotSpot Plus is an all-in-one unit that combines a 0-10V dimmable LED driver with a built-in emergency lighting system, complete with replaceable backup battery, eliminating the need for a separate emergency lighting system. The HotSpot Plus operates as a 40W constant current LED driver with output programmable from 250-1400mA. For emergency lighting, the built-in battery provides emergency lighting for up to 180 minutes at 5W or 90 minutes at 10W. The HotSpot Plus is available in a compact configuration, a linear design with end leads, or with bottom side leads for downlight installations.

Also on display will be Fulham’s Quik Custom LED drivers, which are ideal for OEMs looking for drivers that match specific power requirements without having to manually adjust dials or set resistors to tune output. These high-efficiency drivers are available in three versions: a 40W customizable 1400mA driver with output voltage from 10-45VDC; a 60W customizable 700-1600mA driver with output voltage from 10-43VDC; and an 88W customizable 500-2100mA driver with output voltage from 21-44VDC. All the Quik Custom drivers are high efficiency with 0-10V dimming and a sleek linear package. All three units also are rated IP64, CE, RoHS, and Ulus Listed ClassP, Class2.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced the addition of a new HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System with bottom side leads and studs (BLS) form factor designed for downlight and troffer installations where the driver resides on top of the fixture. The new BLS configuration makes the HotSpot Plus even more versatile, providing an LED driver with emergency lighting functionality in a compact enclosure that can be easily installed in tight spaces. In fact, the HotSpot Plus is the smallest complete emergency LED system on the market.

The HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is an all-in-one unit that includes a 0-10V dimmable LED driver, emergency LED driver, and replaceable battery backup, thus eliminating the need to install a separate emergency lighting system. The HotSpot Plus functions as a 40W constant current LED driver with programmable output range of 250-1400mA. In the event of an emergency, the built-in battery automatically provides emergency lighting for up to 180 minutes at 5W or 90 minutes at 10W. In addition to the new BLS form factor, the HotSpot Plus also is available in a compact or linear design with end leads.

“Our HotSpot Plus units showcase some of Fulham’s latest lighting innovations,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director LED & Emergency Drivers for Fulham. “The HotSpot Plus combines an LED driver with battery-powered emergency lighting, available in three form factors for any type of installation, and the drivers are fully programmable using our SmartSet systems. Our objective is to deliver innovative, energy-efficient lighting solutions that are easy to install and can evolve with our customer’s needs. Clearly the HotSpot Plus fills the bill.”

One of Fulham’s growing family of smart, programmable LED drivers, the HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is programmable in 1mA increments using a handheld SmartSet controller. Fulham’s SmartSet programming enables integration of more efficient lighting modules in luminaire design with programmable step dimming and dim-to-off. It also features an illuminated test switch/AC power indicator and self-diagnostics. The driver comes with a five-year warranty.

Fulham’s SmartSet light programming platform uses either a handheld controller or SmartSet PC Software to control Fulham’s LED drivers. The driver doesn’t have to be powered on to be programmed, and SmartSet includes an auto-program feature that enables fast, one-touch programming of multiple fixtures.

All three models are now shipping from Fulham and its distribution partners in North America.

Hawthorne, CA, USA (February 12, 2016) — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced the availability of its new HotSpot Plus™ All-in-One LED Driver and Emergency System. Combining a dimmable LED driver, emergency LED driver and replaceable backup battery, the HotSpot Plus delivers a complete LED emergency system in a small, efficient and cost-effective package that completely eliminates the need for a separate emergency system.

The new system has been developed to meet the needs of commercial builders who are increasingly being asked to meet new state and city safety requirements for more emergency lighting in new construction and retrofit projects. The industry’s first-of-its-kind system is faster to assemble, features new battery technology that delivers more cycles and longer life, and can be programmed for use in a broad array of fixtures. These features provide luminaire manufacturers with greater inventory flexibility and the ability to deliver products more rapidly.

“Fulham is committed to helping its customers remain successful as they compete in a rapidly evolving and growing marketplace,” said Russ Sharer, vice president of marketing and business development for Fulham. “To that end, our product development goals are to create new products and solutions that are intelligent, programmable and connected. Products such as the HotSpot Plus meet those goals and help our customers to stay ahead.”

The Fulham HotSpot Plus functions as a 40W constant current LED driver during normal working conditions, delivering from 250-1400mA of current. If a power outage occurs, the system automatically engages an integrated LiFePO4 6.4VDC backup battery to maintain the availability of current, delivering 5W of power for 180 minutes or 10W for 90 minutes.

The HotSpot Plus system can be programmed to deliver current in increments of 1mA with the Fulham SmartSet programming platform. Users can program the driver via the handheld TPSB-100 SmartSet Controller or the feature-rich SmartSet PC Software. The SmartSet system also includes a one-touch, auto-program feature for fast, efficient programming of multiple units.

To provide users with maximum flexibility, the HotSpot Plus is available in two formats, compact (6.29″ x 3.0″ x 1.10″) or linear (9.5″ x 2.4″ x 1.34″), and can be installed easily with only two screws. Advanced features include: an illuminated test switch, self-diagnostics and a user-selectable emergency power level.
