High-pressure sodium, non-cycling lamp is the newest addition to the company’s Ceramalux line. The lamps are said to eliminate the unwanted cycling that often causes outdoor lamps to consistently turn off and on at the end of life, now making it easier to determine which lamps should be replaced. The lamp passes U.S. EPA's TCLP test for non-hazardous waste, and contains up to 90% less mercury than a standard high-pressure sodium lamp. For more about Ceramalux from Philips, click here .

Emergency lighting relay control device works in conjunction with an auxiliary generator or central inverter system to power designated emergency lighting loads up to 20 amps regardless of local switch position. The GTD20A acts as either a switch bypass or transfer device and is not limited to emergency lighting applications. For more about GTD20A from Bodine, click here .

Pulse-start lamp is said to be the first compact ANSI Type-O, high-wattage metal-halide lamp in the industry. The 875-watt lamp provides energy savings, longer life and significantly more light over time than today’s standard 1,000-watt metal-halide system.It is suited to applications where energy savings and superior performance are key concerns, including parking lot, outdoor, high bay and site lighting.

Five-tap lighting ballasts are now an optional feature on many of the manufacturer’s fixtures. Five-tap ballasts are said to give customers a versatile lighting solution for use on each of the five U.S. voltage systems: 120-, 208-, 240-, 277- and 480-volt. This should translate into reduced stocking requirements for the end user, distributor and contractors involved in fixture installation and maintenance.
