Night vision
Lithonia Lighting introduces Aeris, a new line of low-profile architectural luminaires for area and roadway lighting applications. Aeris is available in two sizes. The smaller Aeris 1 is sized to provide distribution patterns for walkways, pathways, and common areas while the Aeris 2 is designed for open parking areas, entry drives, and roadways. A wall-mount option allows lens-up orientation for indirect lighting of atriums and lobbies to provide a consistent look from exterior to interior. Aeris offers a choice of five different distribution types that provide uniform coverage. In addition, all reflectors are interchangeable and rotatable in 90º increments.

All hail Xelogen
THHC Lighting introduces an addition to its Xelogen line, the Xelogen (xenon) T-5 GY6.35 bi-pin 12/24V lamp, available in 35 and 50W. It is available in both frosted/clear and long-life/high-brightness models. Applications include landscape path lights, undercabinet puck light, drop-ceiling pendants, and track lights. Lamps based on the Xelogen technology last up to 20,000 hours, reducing the labor cost for lamp replacement. Xelogen lamps are also much more tolerant when dealing with unstable voltages. Also available is the new 120V Xelogen series, offering 5,000 hours of lamp life. Currently the lamps are available in three different base configurations--E11, E12, and BA15D.
