Industrial LED Fixtures
Appleton’s Mercmaster Generation 3 LED is designed for hard-to-illuminate areas such as walkways, wide passageways or decks. Seven lumen outputs levels, ranging from 3,500 to 17,500 lumens (HID Equivalences of 70W to 600W) allow for mounting height and illumination level flexibility. Expanded color temperature options of warm 3,000K, neutral 4,000K, and cool 5,000K CCT assure the preferred color of light for any working environment.
WAC Landscape Lighting has introduced new Hardscape LED luminaires for a variety of exterior lighting applications. The luminaires feature Dual 2,700K and 3,000K CCTs and integral brightness control.

IP66 rated and protected against high-pressure water jets, these landscape luminaires are factory sealed watertight fixtures.
Amerlux says its new Passo step light prevents water seepage, which is the No. 1 cause of light failure. Weather-proof Passo step lights boast an independently sealed LED Optical Chamber that eliminates water infiltration, which cause headaches for lighting designers, landscape architects and energy service companies who recommend step lights and end users, such as facility managers and city managers who are responsible for addressing the on-going, maintenance issues and safety problems associated with subpar fixtures.
Remote Racking System
CBS ArcSafe recently introduced its single-application remote racking system (RRS) for General Electric Type EntelliGuard G air circuit breakers. The lightweight, portable CBS ArcSafe RRS-3 EntelliGuard G allows technicians to remotely install and remove the circuit breaker from a safe distance of up to 300 feet while remaining stationed outside the arc-flash boundary. The RRS-3 EntrelliGuard G is compatible with Type EntelliGuard G air circuit breakers with ratings of 400–6000 A, including GG/GJ/GH/GK-04/07/08/10/13/16/20/25/32/40/50/64.
