Improved thermal dissipation, no-glare illumination, and color-rendering index of 80-plus is ideal for swine barns and workshops

MINNEAPOLIS, June 3, 2015
Engineered Products Company (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors,today announced a new energy-efficient, exceptionally reliable Standard LED Luminaire that combines unparalleled performance,improved efficacy, and high lumen output for indoor, outdoor, and wet-locations specifically for swine production environments. Don Johnson, vice president of Electrical Production Services, a provider of power and technology infrastructure solutions, said, “Swine producers faced with heavy lighting maintenance costs have a valuable opportunity to significantly reduce those costs and improve their bottom line with this luminaire.”

The four- and eight-foot linear solid-state Standard LED Luminaires for swine production facilities consume less than half the wattage of a four-foot luminaire with two 32-watt T8 fluorescent lamps and have a minimum life expectancy of 200,000 hours. EPCO is exhibiting the new fixture luminaire in booth V1029 at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, June 3-5.

“The Standard LED Luminaire is a cost-effective way for swine producers to take a giant economical and energy-savings leap to 200,000 hours of lumen output,” said EPCO President Jack Schuster. “Quick and easy installation, no service maintenance, and rebates from the building owner’s local electric utility make the total cost of ownership for the Standard LED Luminaire financially attractive.”

Schuster added, “To meet the growing demand for vapor-tight energy-efficient lighting, these solid-state LED luminaire solutions provide improved thermal dissipation for optimizing light output. It is truly the preferred luminaire solution for even light distribution, no-glare illumination, and a color-rendering index of 80 and above.”

Ready for immediate installation for new construction and renovation projects, EPCO’s Standard LED Luminaire is ETL listed and meets UL 1598 Standards. This luminaire is also ideal for commercial kitchens, food processing facilities, refrigerators and freezers, warehouses and more. Building owners and contractors should check with their local electric utilities and co-ops for availability of prescriptive or custom rebates to reduce overall installed cost.
