Access Fixtures, a Worcester, Massachusetts-based manufacturer of commercial, industrial, and sports lighting, has introduced three complete horse arena lighting packages intended for outdoor horse arenas of various sizes.
To date, Access Fixtures has provided custom packages based on photometric studies that are specific to the dimensions and needs of each arena. These new packages, based on 190' x 135' outdoor arenas and 150' x 75' outdoor arenas, provide customers with three different prepackaged options meant to throw a lot of light in a designated area. The packages make it simple for consumers to select what they need.
These packages can be used for various different types of equestrian sporting including but not limited to dressage, rodeo, and casual riding. All of these packages include steel poles APTA or APTI sports lighters. Quantity and wattage of fixtures will vary based on the package chosen. Average footcandles also varies between each of these three packages. These packages are the first wave of arena package releases planned by Access Fixtures--customers can expect more arena sizes and options to launch very soon.
The cleanroom lighting market is projected to reach USD 978 million by 2024 from USD 742 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 5.7%.
Major drivers for the market's growth are the need for the controlled environment with deficient levels of pollutants in manufacturing industries, stringent regulations in healthcare & food processing industries to prevent contamination of the product, rising demand for sterile manufacturing areas in the pharmaceutical industry and advancements in medical devices to support the growth of cleanroom lighting.
Furthermore, underlying opportunities for the cleanroom lighting market include the growing economies in the Middle East to boost cleanroom lighting adoption and increasing demand for energy-efficient cleanrooms. The major restraints for the market are the high cost associated with clean rooms. Customized designs of cleanrooms and the need for technical know-how pose significant challenges to the cleanroom lighting market. Photo Duk
Sometimes the most useful hacks are also the simplest ones. A case in point is the LED and resistor assembly that Skippy recently posted. The idea is to solder up some pre-made indicators with integrated resistors to save space on the breadboard when prototyping — instead of four slots, you only use two per LED. This is about as easy a trick as you can imagine, but it has the hallmark of a classic hack: a high utility-to-work ratio. The deluxe assembly uses a two-pin header as a base to plug into the breadboard. This, of course, could be optional since some breadboards have a memory for the widest pin previously inserted — using header pins may eventually make the slots a little flaky for smaller component leads.
New Kensington is moving ahead with the installation of new LED streetlights downtown. City council on Monday authorized City Clerk Dennis Scarpiniti and City Engineer Tony Males to enter into negotiations for the new lights. They will be negotiating with representatives from Connected Energ Group and Tudi Mechanical Systems. Scarpiniti said the lights will be purchased through Connected Energy, and Tudi Mechanical will install them.
The city's Public Lighting Authority has begun efforts to replace nearly one-third of its LED streetlights only a few years after they were installed because of defective equipment that's causing premature dimming and failures. The Detroit News first reported last month that the authority had filed a federal lawsuit against the manufacturer, Leotek Electronics USA, arguing the problems put the city's revitalization progress "in jeopardy" and a fix is expected to cost millions.
California-based KODA’s latest security camera introduces its first motion-activated floodlight + alarm offering with the new KODA LightCam. The camera includes some impressive features including the company’s UltraSense technology that does a great job of minimizing false alarms while allowing pre-event recording to make sure the camera captures as much as possible when detecting presence.
Sleep is a million-dollar market these days. That makes sense—it's the one thing we all crave but can never quite get enough of. Recently, one of the era's trendiest direct-to-consumer mattress brands, Casper, made the leap from bedding to bedside sleep-assistance with Glow Lights (yes, that's their proper name). Glow Lights use very warm, comforting light housed in a palm-sized translucent cylinder to mimic the setting or rising sun. The effect is exactly as wholesome and natural as it sounds. The lights calm you down before bedtime and gently wake you the next morning. And they're dead simple to use.
Town Manager Dennis Lajoie announced Thursday evening that the cost of converting 293 streetlights to LED bulbs is $175,177. Voters have approved spending up to $200,000 for the work by Realterm Energy of Maryland and set aside $13,000 for it this fiscal year, which ends June 30. The $175,177 estimate includes the $13,000 already set aside. The town would lose $1,300 in annual tax revenue after the conversion, but save about $33,700 in energy costs annually.
