“Universal Lighting has seen significant growth over the past few years since we joined the Panasonic family,” said Vice President of Marketing Chris Holstein. “We’re excited to start the next chapter in our company’s future as we make the move to a new home where the lighting technology reflects the very products that have led to our success.”
The new corporate office positions the company for greater growth and includes leading designs and state-of-the-art technologies from all members of the Panasonic Lighting Americas group.
LED technologies in the facility include LED downlights that use EVERLINE LED Drivers and Chip on Board LED Modules with 0–10V dimming controls. Existing recessed troffer lighting fixtures were upgraded with LED retrofit kits and EVERLINE linear LED modules to provide high efficiency lighting with high quality color and an extremely long rated life while being dimmable. DCL control technology allows the LED drivers to receive communications over the power line, providing energy management load shedding capabilities.
Universal Lighting’s new headquarters incorporates leading fluorescent technologies, including DEMANDflex ballasts, as well as six-lamp T8 fixtures installed throughout the unique and innovative office space. The lighting system also utilizes VariPRO 0–10V dimming in the main entry. Both technologies are incorporated with a Dialog Control System and occupancy sensors from Panasonic’s Douglas Lighting Controls for local zone control, manual overrides and facility scheduling.
Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., produces some of the world’s most advanced linear fluorescent, compact fluorescent, HID, eHID, and LED solutions for commercial lighting applications, as well as the most cost-effective energy management systems in the lighting industry today. A global leader in research and development since 1947, Universal Lighting Technologies joined the Panasonic family of companies as a wholly owned subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation Eco Solutions Company in 2007. Today the company manufactures and distributes products under the Universal®, EVERLINE®, Triad®, Panasonic, Vossloh-Schwabe, DCL®, DEMANDflex™, and Signa® brand names.
