SYRACUSE, N.Y. ... Power management company Eaton today announced the introduction of the Ephesus All Field light-emitting diode (LED) Series. The LED solution provides high schools, colleges, municipalities and other venues with a high-quality, cost-effective, versatile and controllable outdoor LED sports lighting solution that is engineered to satisfy the specific lighting needs of facilities of all sizes.
Eaton's Ephesus All Field Series is the first LED fixture designed to easily retrofit into existing sports lighting infrastructure with its multiple mounting options, low weight and low Effective Projected Area (EPA). Additionally, the product's self-contained electrical junction box and easily deployed lighting control system help dramatically reduce installation costs.
"The All Field Series brings our experience with deploying high-output, extremely efficient LED lighting solutions at some of the most prominent professional sports venues to high school and municipal fields of all sizes," said Mike Lorenz, president, Eaton's Ephesus Lighting business. "Since professional and municipal field managers face different challenges, our innovative technology is designed to give these smaller venues high-quality, controllable, cost-effective and energy-efficient LED lighting."
The enhanced engineered optics of the Ephesus All Field Series efficiently delivers uniform light on the field and significantly reduces unwanted light spill and sky glow. Furthermore, the efficiency of the All Field Series allows for a dramatic reduction in fixtures versus other field lighting solutions.
The Ephesus All Field 750 and 550 models offer unmatched controllability with communication technology commonly used in the Wi-Fi and cellular market. The fixtures provide two-way communication with the capability to self-monitor and report performance and wellness data from each fixture.
Eaton's Ephesus Lighting business continues in the tradition of innovation and deploying industry-first technologies in sports and entertainment lighting systems, such as those first seen at the University of Phoenix Stadium (Arizona Cardinals); the Canadian Tire Centre (Ottawa Senators); Bridgestone Arena (Nashville Predators) and many more. Additionally, New Miami Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins, and U.S. Bank Stadium, the future home of the Minnesota Vikings, are both installing Eaton's Ephesus systems during the off-season.
