Hubbell Lighting Offers New Line of Decorative LED Fixtures
James R. DukartThe new fixture family offers choices from three primary styles – cylinder and ring, cylinder or ring. With additional options, the three primary styles can be set into any of eleven different configurations.
The cylinder includes concentric layers of light with a frosted and clear glass effect, while the extruded ring incorporates illumination technology to highlight a minimalist form factor with an internal flexible LED source.
The ring is available in three different diameters – 20, 30 and 40 inches – meant to fit a variety of design considerations. The fixture features a cast aluminum joiner bracket for structural alignment and field adjustability.
“We designed the Inde-Pendants 32L to be low in profile and accommodate downlight, uplight and decorative components,” said Jeff Schoepf, vice president of product development for Hubbell Lighting’s Litecontrol.
Schoepf added that the new line utilizes Litecontrol’s Variable Intensity (“Vi”) Technology, allowing specifiers to match output or power, in 50 lumen increments, to meet precise needs, be they indirect or direct lumen output. Vi technology also provides verifiable wattage, which is critical for specifiers who need to meet performance criteria by application. The Inde-Pendants 32L features indirect and direct cylinder distributions, Shoepf claimed, with efficacy up to 118 lumens per watt and customizable lumen outputs ranging from 350 to 3,000 lumens.
Schoepf added that the Inde-Pendants 32L features a Power Over Aircraft Cable (POAC) suspension system, a first for a Litecontrol product. POAC, he said, provides power for class two luminaires without the need for a secondary power cord. “Integrating power over aircraft cable technology allows the aesthetic to blend into the cylinder,” said Schoepf, claiming that these design considerations will help specifiers avoid a traditional “cost vs. aesthetic” dilemma in the use of decorative LED fixtures.
