Lighting Science Group Launches Its High-Performance Forefront(TM) Site and Area LED Lighting Product Line
SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Matching commercial demand with sustainable LED lighting design, Lighting Science Group (OTCBB: LSCG) announced today the launch of its Forefront(TM) product line. A full family of architectural luminaires, the Forefront is available in area, flood, highbay, pedestrian and wall — each of which individually blends into the architectural landscape it illuminates. Valued for its versatility, coordinated form and unparalleled performance, the line also debuts Lighting Science Group’s new benchmark for outdoor control, its occupancy sensing technology PixelView(TM).
“Lighting Science Group engineers designed Forefront with designers in mind,” said Jim Haworth, chairman and chief executive officer. “As a cohesive family of products, the line offers infinite options and combinations to meet — and enhance — any space’s lighting requirements. Couple Forefront’s adaptability with LED lighting’s ability to maximize energy savings, performance and thermal management, architectural designers now have a go-to source for all their illumination projects.”
Each of the Forefront products — area, flood, highbay, pedestrian and wall — pairs power with performance. Forefront area offers six optical distributions and delivers up to 32,000 lumens, making it the perfect one-for-one replacement of HID fixtures from 100-750 watts at approximately half the energy usage. Forefront flood features four unique optical distribution modules, with output ranges up to 23,000 lumens, providing focused lighting solutions for facade, sign, landscape and architectural highlighting. Forefront highbay suits a wide range of industrial applications — including warehousing, schools, cold storage and manufacturing facilities — with three sizes and optical packages. Forefront pedestrian enhances visibility in scale applications such as parks, building entrances and streetscapes with outputs over 5,500 lumens. Forefront wall — available in two sizes, each providing performance of a 400 watt HID system at less than half the energy usage — optimizes the LED source while preserving the module’s flexibility to outfit complex applications and diverse settings.
Going beyond just coordinated appearance, Lighting Science Group’s world-class team of scientists and engineers provided for the option of integrating the Company’s new PixelView occupancy control system directly into the product’s luminaires. Whereas typical exterior occupancy controls using Passive Infrared (PIR) technology to detect motion can be severely diminished in hot or cold environments, the PixelView Occupancy Control system relies on image sensing and video processing. As such, Forefront’s ability to detect and characterize motion is unaffected by ambient conditions. Requiring no costly secondary wiring of sensors outside of the luminaire or any remote software monitoring, PixelView comes factory installed with the luminaire in standard offerings that will allow it to dim to either 30% or 50% of its wattage in an unoccupied setting. Furthermore, the PixelView control system provides an exceptional 360-degree coverage zone of 4L X 3W mounting heights in applications up to 40 feet.
The new product line joins the Company’s suite of products that have found applications ranging from use in NASA outer space ventures to artistic designs that span skyscraper silhouettes to everyday practical implementations for American homes and businesses that save families and business owners significant amounts of money on electricity bills. On the global stage, Lighting Science Group has become synonymous with the ultra-efficient lighting revolution, and at home the Company is most commonly viewed as the fulfillment of America’s clean technology promise.
