According to Ron Newbold, Vice President of Brand Management for Prescolite, this new offering is an alternative to the traditional – and limited – options that are available for dimming interior spaces with high ceilings. High intensity discharge lights (HID) aren’t easily dimmable and often have issues when cycled on/off due to their need to cool down during restriking, while inefficient T4 quartz lamps don’t last long and radiate a tremendous amount of heat. Also, it can be difficult to change a T4 quartz lamp that may sit above multiple rows of seats in settings that feature high ceilings.
Prescolite’s configurable optics produce center beam power (up to 11,000 CBCP) ideal for higher ceiling applications. Combined with Lutron LED dimming options, D4LED4, D6LED3 and D6LED4 fixtures offer the perfect solution for dimming capabilities in a wide variety of environments. And with a life of 50,000 hours, these fixtures are virtually maintenance free.
