Intense Lighting's ICL-MBW2 and OB1 Recognized by the IES Committee
ANAHEIM – (October 30, 13) – Intense Lighting, a leading manufacturer of award-winning LED specification grade lighting solutions is pleased to announce that the ICL-MBW2 Pluris Multiple and the OB1-ORBIS LED Track Luminaire are included in the Illuminating Engineering Society’s (IES) 2013 Progress Report. The Progress Report documents significant global developments and achievements in the lighting industry as well as in the areas of art and lighting technology. It features new products, applications and design tools that are significant enough to share with its entire membership, which represents more than 10,000 lighting engineers worldwide. According to Committee Chairperson Mark Benguerel, there were 225 total submittals this year. A team of 34 dedicated committee members diligently vetted each product by reviewing photometric reports and extensive technical documentation before making its final recommendations. In the end, 143 products were selected for inclusion in the annual Progress Report. Out of those 143, 118 were luminaires and just about half of those are now being recognized, including the ICL-MBW2 and the ORBIS LED from Intense Lighting. “We are extremely honored to be selected by the IES for our contributions this year to the lighting industry,” says Kenny Eidsvold, company president. “Both the ICL-MBW2 and the ORBIS LED track luminaire truly represent the very best of our product design in terms of efficacy, performance and versatility.” The ICL-MBW2 is a feature-enriched, recessed flood luminaire. With a fully retractable head that allows up-to 60-degree vertical tilt, the ICL-MBW2 delivers on performance and versatility. Designed for flood or wall wash lighting, the ICL-MBW2 offers multiple CCT and CRI options. It also features 3 Step MacAdam (3 SDMC) color point uniformity and a minimum of 50,000 operating hours. The ICL-MBW2 is covered by the company’s 10-Year LED Warranty. Intense Lighting’s OB1-ORBIS LED Track Luminaire is an expansion of the company’s award-winning MB track line but offers a cleaner, more sophisticated design aesthetic. It is a highly efficient luminaire featuring 68 lumens per watt (LPW). With its excellent beam control utilizing high performance precision optics, combined with a miniature package, the ORBIS LED is an excellent alternative to a 75W, MR16 or 20W ceramic metal halide. Other features include multiple CRI and CCT options, 3 Step MacAdam (3 SDMC) binning and active thermal management that includes a quiet and reliable operation noise rating below 22dBA. Like the ICL-MBW2, the OB1-ORBIS also comes with the Intense Lighting 10-Year LED Warranty. Visit the all-new www.intenselighting.com to learn more about these innovative products.
