WAC Lighting, RPI’s Lighting Research Center to Develop and Assess LED Track Lighting

WAC Lighting, in association with Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), promotes the development of high-efficiency LED track luminaires. This development benefits the art gallery, located outside to NYC’s suburban library.

WAC Lighting Collaborates with RPI’s Lighting Research Center to Develop and Evaluate Energy Efficient LED Track Lighting

The Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES) annual conference showcased the results of the project, also available at LRC’s DELTA case study publication series.

The study conducted by LRC is mainly based on WAC Lighting’s LED track luminaires’ performance in the Mineola Public Library of Long Island known for innovative exhibitions. The LED track luminaires, known as Vamp Series provide accent lighting that will promote bright effect for the art galleries, without glare or shadows. The Walter and Joan Hobbs Gallery space acquires light from the clerestory windows located within. In addition, lighting fixtures are also being employed. This 174-ft gallery space included four recessed downlights of 10” in diameter. Each downlight consists of two 32 W, pin-based, triple twin-tube CFLs.

Two track lighting systems with halogen MR16s and LEDs were offered by WAC Lighting, which was installed above 2’ from the wall.

Studies were conducted based on the gallery work’s illumination wherein 22 library patrons and staff with the three lighting systems were examined. The results of the study emphasize the importance of halogen and LED accent lighting systems and demonstrate their efficiency over CFLs, as the LED system utilizes 46% lower energy than CFLs.

The report concluded that the energy-efficiency of LED accent lighting system surpasses the MR16 halogen lamps and CFLs. Furthermore, LEDs comply will all the latest energy code limits for lighting power density.
