ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 11, 2016 /3BL Media/ – LG Electronics USA is introducing its new energy-efficient, performance “High Bay” wireless LED system, designed for easy installation in facilities with tall ceilings like gymnasiums, for example, thanks to its advanced wireless grouping technology and light weight.

For greater energy savings and flexibility in fixture management, wireless control capability provides the opportunity to customize light levels in addition to managing grouped fixtures. Similar to LG’s existing Simple Choice high bay lighting, the new performance round and IP65-rated high bay model allows for efficient set-up through the use of a mobile application (available on Android devices) to group and ungroup fixtures at the touch of a button.

The fixtures feature an integrated daylight and occupancy sensor with three levels of system integration, including stand-alone, group control and third-party wireless controls using the ZigBee® open standard protocol. This minimizes concerns over the flexibility required to create a network of high bays that work together within a lighting control system.

The new round, IP65-rated LG high bay is a performance model within the company’s broader high bay line-up and is ideal for installations in food processing facilities and gymnasiums, according to Sean Lafferty, head of LG’s U.S. LED lighting business. It is appropriate for each environment, respectively, because it can be washed by power hose and high durability thanks to its polycarbonate lenses.

The fixture is also lightweight, weighing less than 10 pounds, allowing for easier installation. Meanwhile, LG’s Simple Choice high bay remains a lower-cost option, ideal for industrial warehouses and factories.

“The expansion of our high bay line-up is supported by LG’s core capability of providing the most advanced and efficient LED lighting solutions on the market,” said Lafferty. “Based on positive customer feedback, our newly expanded high bay offerings will be fierce competitors in the marketplace, providing retrofitters with competitively priced fixtures that offer a high degree of wireless control.”

To promote ease of third-party systems integration, LG’s new high bays are being certified for compatibility with the Daintree Networks® industry-leading ControlScope® enterprise controls platform, which uses the open ZigBee wireless communication standard.

“We look forward to adding LG’s new performance high bays to the existing line-up of LG LED fixtures that are certified by Daintree, so customers can leverage our controls for energy and operational efficiencies, as well as a platform for the Enterprise Internet of Things™ (E-IoT™),” said Derek Proudian, Chairman & CEO of Daintree Networks, Inc. “With LG and Daintree, users can be confident that their buildings are not only smart but future proof as they expand the number of fixtures, devices and sensors they manage in their facilities.”
