Fulham HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver Recognized for Innovation in 2017 IES Progress Report

Newest HotSpot LED Emergency Lighting Driver Listed in Illuminating Engineering Society Report for Unique Programmability, Monitoring, and Diagnostics.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that the company’s HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver has been included by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) in the 2017 Progress Report. Being listed in the 2017 IES Progress Report is a distinct honor since the annual Report showcases technically significant advancements in the art and science of lighting.

The driver was selected because of a number of innovations that were identified by the IES Progress Committee, including:

• The first constant power LED emergency driver to feature programmable power output capability;
• The first emergency driver with an integrated life data recorder to log time in standby mode; time in emergency mode, emergency events, and temperature;
• The first emergency driver to use an integrated test switch bicolor indicator light (red and green) for status and self-diagnostics; and
• Meeting the CEC Title 20 requirements for small battery chargers, as well as the specifications of the European Eco Directive.

“Inclusion in the annual IES Progress Report is a special honor since selection is made by the engineering community and is based on superior engineering, demonstrating that Fulham is truly advancing lighting technology and innovation,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “At Fulham we listen to our customers, and our R&D team is committed to developing products with functionality that addresses their needs and advances the state of illumination.”

Fulham first introduced Constant Power Emergency LED drivers in 2016 with a series of cULus-classified models that quickly gained in popularity due to their ease of installation and compliance with local emergency lighting standards. The new programmable model is designed for luminaire manufacturers looking to offer emergency capability. It uses LiFePO4 batteries to deliver a minimum of 90 minutes of power in the event of an outage, and can be programmed for lower light output to extend emergency run times.

The HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver is an example of Fulham’s growing line of clever, programmable lighting products. Programmability allows a luminaire manufacturer to stock a single driver that can be customized for different applications. For example, the HotSpot driver uses a default setting for the battery to deliver maximum output for 90 minutes, e.g. a 10W battery delivers 10W of output. It also can be programmed to extend run time, such as programming a 10W battery to run at 5W to double emergency illumination time. This means the same HotSpot device can be used in a commercial space where regulations require 90 minutes of egress lighting, or in a high-rise building that may require longer emergency illumination times.

In addition to Title 20, the HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver complies with international safety regulations, including cULus, CE and ENEC. All HotSpot LED emergency drivers come with Fulham’s 5-year warranty.

Fulham ThoroLED AC LED Retrofit Kits Receive ENERGY STAR® Certification

New ENERGY STAR Certification Simplifies Testing Process and Reduces Costs for Luminaire Makers Using Fulham’s AC Direct Drive LED Light Engines.

Fulham Logo

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc. (http://www.fulham.com), a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that three models of its AC-powered ThoroLED LED Retrofit Kits have been tested and certified as ENERGY STAR® Luminaire 2.0 compliant.

The three non-dimming AC LED retrofit kits are designed for ceiling and wall luminaires and are available in three power levels: 10W (model TJT120010AC), 15W (model TJT120015AC) and 25W (model TJT120025AC). The AC units are ideally suited to replace the original lamps in wall sconces and common ceiling lights for field installation or as factory retrofits, and they offer at least twice the lumens per watt as fluorescent lamps. The three units also are cULus classified and because they are ENERGY STAR certified, are eligible for a number of energy rebate programs.

ENERGY STAR certification assures luminaire manufacturers that components have already been tested for photometric life and electric performance by an EPA-recognized laboratory. Using ENERGY STAR certified products reduces both testing costs and time required for certification of new luminaires. It also ensures that new luminaires will be eligible for ENERGY STAR rebates for installers where available. Fulham anticipates receiving similar certification for additional retrofit kits in the near future.

“We are seeing an increasing demand for LED retrofit kits as more building designers and managers seek out better quality lighting solutions that save them money,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Retrofitting existing luminaires to LEDs not only saves on power, but also on maintenance since LEDs last more than 10 times longer than fluorescents. Having ENERGY STAR certification for our retrofit kits gives our customers assurance that they can deliver energy-saving lighting without compromising on the quality of light or the light fixture.”

Fulham’s ThoroLED Retrofit Kits are field installable and designed to simplify conversion of existing light luminaires to long-lasting, energy-efficient LED luminaires that deliver twice the lumens of fluorescent lights with more even lighting for fewer shadows. Using LED technology provides better quality light in a long-lasting package that eliminates the need for bulb replacement. And the ThoroLED Retrofit Kits are field installable in minutes, easily replacing existing light luminaires, and they include thermal management and heat dissipation to extend the operational life of the LEDs.
