Lumen Output – Higher output fixtures can be spaced further apart and fixture output and spacing can be managed to easily meet light level targets.

 

Optics – To ensure light distribution patterns, narrow, wide and aisle optics are available.

 

Color Temperature – Fixtures are available in different versions dependent upon environment.

 

Occupancy Sensing – Digital Lumen fixtures can provide light exactly when and where needed.

 

Daylignt Harvesting – Integrated daylight sensors check for available ambient light and adjust fixture output to compensate. This conserves energy by decreasing and increasing output based on natural light available.
