Anaheim, CA | August 4, 2016 – Intense Lighting, a Leviton company, is proud to announce that the MX G2 3.5-inch downlight and the Gravity 4-inch downlight have been included in the 2016 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report. It is the Progress Committee’s mission to keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world and prepare a yearly report of achievements for the Society. Acceptance in the Progress Report is based on an impartial judging process used by the committee to evaluate each submission on it uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry.
“We are honored to have our Gravity and MX downlights represented in this year’s IES Progress Report,” says Jennifer Butler, Director of Marketing & Product Management at Intense Lighting. “Our commitment to innovation is reflected in both the design and performance of these two products, so this recognition is particularly gratifying for us.”
MXG2 Small Aperture Downlight
Delivering more than 24,500 center beam candlepower (CBCP), the MX G2 downlight offers the highest CBCP among 3.5-inch aperture downlights in a 12° beam using a surface mount LED with a TIR optic. Custom high performance TIR optics delivers quality light precisely where it is needed. The award-winning MX features impressive lumen packages that offer as much as 50% more light output than the previous model. To ensure color consistency over time, the MX downlight uses industry-leading LEDs binned to a minimum of 2 SDCM as a standard. A unified light engine consisting of the same LED chips, TIR optics and filter media is used throughout the MX family in order to provide unparalleled consistency among installed luminaires.
Gravity 4-inch High Performance Downlight
Offering performance without compromise, the newly designed Gravity 4-inch downlight is the first commercial downlight that can accommodate a ½” to 2 ¼” ceiling thickness using a patent pending selectable collar. Using an innovative design, the optical source is lowered as the collar extends resulting in virtually no additional light cutoff throughout the adjustment range, ensuring flexibility without sacrificing performance. This new small form factor luminaire is feature rich and packs a powerful punch. Available lumen packages for Gravity 4-inch downlight deliver up to 4500lm.
