- Ease of installation, embedded sensors and connectivity change LED paradigm
- Products showcased at sold-out Grainger Show in Orlando
BOSTON – February 27, 2019 – Current, powered by GE announced the debut of several new LED fixtures that deliver valuable time savings during installation and long term flexibility for building retrofits and new construction. The products are debuting in March 2019 and will be showcased at the Grainger Show in Orlando.
Current by GE’s RPL is the company’s first flat panel retrofit kit with integrated lighting control sensors. Available in 2’ x 4’ and 2’ x 2’, the RPL was created for commercial offices to minimize installation time, benefiting maintenance teams and office tenants, and to provide instant compatibility with Daintree One and Daintree EZ Connect. The product will be available for order on March 18, 2019.
With luminaires that easily join together for long continuous runs of uniform lights and flexible install variations, the new LAL Series 2nd Gen provides a unique customizable LED solution for retail and commercial spaces. This Daintree controls compatible product line includes Current’s patented TriGainTM color technology in recessed and suspended configurations.
“Our goal when engineering these new indoor products is to offer features that deliver benefit from installation day through the life of the product,” explained Kevin Heffernan, Current by GE’s General Manager, Channel. “We know that time is money when it comes to rip and replace, maintenance and energy monitoring so we are packing it all into our products from the start.”
Current’s newest outdoor product is the ERLC Compact Cobra Head which delivers the same lumen output in a smaller package. The result is a 30 percent lighter fixture (8 lb vs. 12.5 lb.) that is easier to install and a cost-effective solution for walkways and neighborhood street lighting. An added benefit of the new Compact Cobra Head is a unique reflective technology that creates a focused light area.
“Our commitment to our Channel partners is stronger than ever and these products demonstrate our focus on continuous improvement and innovation,” Heffernan said.
