EAST LANSING — Rebecca Anthony, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the Michigan State University College of Engineering, has been awarded a five-year, $500,000 NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award to research nanostructure manufacturing that will make LED lights more efficient and versatile.
MUSKEGON — The Muskegon-based LED lighting manufacturer EarthTronics has expanded its decorative LED light bulb product line to include a new line of EarthBulb filament LEDs.
The bulbs provide a replacement for incandescent decorative and general service bulbs that offers more than 80 percent energy savings compared to conventional bulbs.
MUSKEGON — The Muskegon-based high-efficiency lighting manufacturer EarthTronics has introduced two new LED-based replacements for fluorescent light bulbs.
The 2,200-lumen, 15-watt T8 LED linear tube delivers 146 lumens per watt, while the 3,200-lumen, 25-watt T5 LED linear tube delivers 128 lumens per watt. The latter is a one-for-one replacement for the popular 54-watt T5HO fluorescent lamp used in high-bay fixtures.
MUSKEGON — The Muskegon-based LED lighting manufacturer EarthTronics Inc. has introduced a 17-watt PAR (parabolic aluminized reflector) lamp for both 120-volt and 277-volt systems.
The new PAR38 EarthBulb LED floodlight replaces 120-watt incandescent floodlights, saving more than 85 percent on energy. The lamp is capable of operating on 120 or 277 volt circuits.
TROY — Toggled, the LED lighting manufacturing subsidiary of Troy-based Altair Engineering Inc., has completed an energy-saving LED lighting retrofit at Byron Center High School.
The $150,000 relamping was part of a $1.5 million energy saving project at the school district, southwest of Grand Rapids, that serves more than 3,800 students.
Included were new LED lamps in high school hallways, classrooms, locker rooms, and the school’s natatorium. Halogen and sodium vapor lighting was replaced.
MUSKEGON — The Muskegon LED lamp manufacturer EarthTronics has introduced high lumen, high efficiency LEDs as an energy-efficient replacement for High Intensity Discharge lamps (HID) for interior and exterior applications in parking garages, site and security lighting, high bay warehouse fixtures and post lights.
MUSKEGON — The Muskegon-based LED lighting manufacturer EarthTronics has released “Plug and Play”: and direct wire linear LED tubes as an energy-efficient replacement for T8 fluorescent bulbs for office, retail, hospitality, restaurant and long-term care applications.
TROY — The LED lighting technology developer Toggled said it had added Roanoke, Texas-based solar lamp maker International Development LLC to its list of patent licensees.
As a licensee, International Development now has access to Toggled’s broad portfolio of over 60 patents, most related to LED replacements for fluorescent tubes, commonly referred to as TLEDs.
TROY — The Toggled LED lighting business unit of the Troy
engineering technology developer Altair announced that
Norcross, Ga.-based Halco Lighting Technologies had joined
Toggled’s licensing program.
As a licensee, Halco Lighting Technologies now has access
to Toggled’s broad portfolio of more than 60 patents primarily
related to LED replacements for fluorescent tubes, commonly
referred to as TLEDs.
GRAND RAPIDS — Technology developed by LumenFlow Corp. will power the next generation of lighting for greenhouses.
Partnering with two other Michigan companies, Grand Rapids-based LumenFlow has designed and developed an advanced photonic LED system that ensures the uniform distribution of light with a specific spectral profile that encourages plant growth.
This technology was used by Light-Speed USA, which was recently announced the winner of NextEnergy Lighting Challenge, a statewide competition designed to drive technology innovation and economic development in Michigan.
