In addition to the four new products Orion is launching exclusively at LIGHTFAIR 2017, the company will showcase a wide array of the state-of-the-art LED lighting products it has released over the past year.

ISON Class Fixtures Focus on Industry Leading Performance

The New ISON LED LDR® Retrofit Modular Gourmet with Britex delivers business solutions to the foodservice industry. Designed to easily integrate with smart controls, the high-performance luminaire has the power to elevate guest and staff experiences, improve food safety, and enhance the appearance of food products with a variety of light levels and color temperatures.

  • First to market, patented LED troffer retrofit featuring Britex, Orion's proprietary white coating with antimicrobial properties designed to suppress the growth and transmission of microorganisms in food display and preparation applications.
  • A typical facility replacing fluorescent lighting with 1,000 ISON LED LDR Troffer Retrofit Modular Gourmet fixtures could expect to reduce electricity costs for lighting by more than $36,000 a year and $360,000 over a decade, a savings of 63 percent.1
  • Designed to retrofit existing 2'x2' and 2'x4' door frame fluorescent troffers.
  • Enables installation in under two minutes with minimal workplace disruption.
  • Compatible with multiple commercially available control technologies; can serve as a platform to deliver business solutions through digital ceiling and IoT initiatives.
  • Backed by the ISON 10-year warranty.

APOLLO® Class Luminaires Balance Performance with Cost

The New APOLLO Generation III LED High Bay is designed for industrial, commercial, and retail applications - both high bay and low bay. At 165 lumens per watt, the Apollo Gen III is the highest performing luminaire in its class.

  • Consumes approximately 26 percent less energy than the average comparable LED fixture in the same luminaire category.
  • A typical facility replacing fluorescent lighting with 1,000 APOLLO Gen III LED High Bays could expect to reduce electricity costs for lighting by more than $78,000 a year and $780,000 over a decade, a savings of 54 percent. 2
  • Exceeds the lumens per watt efficiency of the APOLLO Generation II LED High Bay by almost 10 percent.
  • The future-proof, modular design reduces costs by allowing maintenance crews to easily keep pace as technology evolves, light level requirements change, or to improve efficiency using the luminaire's existing platform.
  • Options include lenses, emergency fixture colored end caps and battery backup.
  • Compatible with multiple commercially available control technologies; can serve as a platform to deliver business solutions through digital ceiling and IoT initiatives.

The New APOLLO LED High Lumen High Bay and High Bay Plus are designed to provide powerful high bay or low bay illumination for industrial, warehouse, manufacturing, commercial, wholesale, and retail applications.

  • A typical facility replacing fluorescent lighting with 1,000 APOLLO LED High Bay Plus fixtures could expect to reduce electricity costs for lighting by over $54,000 a year and $540,000 over a decade, a savings of 37 percent.3
  • Delivers industry leading lumens per watt efficiency of up to 163 LPW.
  • Innovative thermal design reduces the operating temperature. Less heat means the luminaire performs more efficiently, extending its rated life and boosting performance.
  • Offers five lumen packages of up to 55,000 lumens.
  • Options include lenses, emergency fixture colored end caps and battery backup.
  • Compatible with multiple commercially available control technologies; can serve as a platform to deliver business solutions through Digital Ceiling and IoT initiatives.

HARRIS Fixtures Target Smaller Budgets

The New HARRIS Generation II LED High Bay is ideal for industrial, commercial, and retail customers seeking a cost-effective solution to deliver energy savings and maintenance reductions over traditional linear fluorescent high bay lighting systems.

  • A typical facility replacing fluorescent lighting with 1,000 HARRIS Gen II High Bays could expect to reduce electricity costs by over $66,000 a year and more than $660,000 over a decade, a savings of 37 percent. 4
  • The 2'x2' high bay delivers up to 140 lumens per watt.
  • The lightweight, white aluminum body offers light distribution options for aisles or open areas.
  • Options include lenses and battery backup.
  • Compatible with multiple commercially available control technologies; can serve as a platform to deliver business solutions through Digital Ceiling and IoT initiatives.

Orion CEO John Scribante commented, "Our new state-of-the-art lighting solutions focus on delivering improved performance, ease of installation and meaningful long-term savings. Building on this value pillar, our solutions are easily integrated with lighting control technologies to create a ‘Connected Lighting Platform' that provides even more ways for our customers to optimize lighting system performance and cost. The connected lighting ceiling provides a facility-wide platform to host new and future Internet of Things (IoT) technologies designed to deliver even greater business intelligence applications, from asset tracking to space occupancy and material handling efficiency in addition to lighting system operation. Orion lighting systems not only enable this potential, but also help to fund the investment through energy efficiency and lower installation and maintenance costs."
