Acuity Brands Offers Food Processors Networked LED Lighting Solutions
Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

ATLANTA -- Acuity Brands, Inc. is unveiling its first networked LED-based lighting solution designed specifically to address the tough conditions food processing facilities deal with every day.

The new networked solutions for food processing facilities are a groundbreaking approach to lighting that enable savings, flexibility, operational efficiency and visual comfort.

The new networked solutions for food processing facilities help save money by reducing the total cost of operations. In addition to the reduced energy use and lower maintenance requirements of LED lighting, the new solutions are fully integrated, minimizing the time and expense required to configure complex lighting systems.

Facilities can now upgrade their lighting while significantly reducing operating expenses and freeing up both capital and maintenance crews. Custom financing and rebate services make the solution one of the few opportunities facility managers have to make a capital improvement at minimal upfront cost, with the upgrade project remaining case flow positive in year one.

“Acuity Brands is continually working to reduce lighting system costs while ensuring that each product and service in our networked solutions portfolio meets the most rigorous facility conditions,” said Mick Wilcox, VP Industrial Marketing, Acuity Brands Lighting. “Drawing on decades of service to some of the industry’s leading companies, we have applied our expertise to customize networked solutions with the features and functionality food processors demand.”

The networked lighting solutions help boost operational efficiency by improving safety and boosting employee productivity through higher quality illumination. A better lit, more visually comfortable work environment helps reduce worker fatigue and drive higher, more consistent production. The solutions are flexible with components that provide control over the lighting environment and tools that evolve with the operation.

Complete solutions from Acuity Brands offer food processors lighting for every aspect of the plant, including production lines, office space, emergency, outdoor and task-specific functions like inspection stations and cold storage areas

The networked systems are easy-to-specify because the entire system - LED luminaires, responsive occupancy sensors and controls - comes fully integrated from one manufacturer. Acuity Brands assures that each system will be accurate, complete and aligned with the application’s specific needs.
