Hubbell Lighting Introduces SpectraClean™ Visible Light Disinfection Technology for Commercial and Industrial Markets

First to Combine HINS Technology with Integrated Wireless Controls For Four Modes of Operation and Multiple Standard Lumen Packages

Greenville, SC – July 11, 2019 – Hubbell Lighting, a world leader in lighting innovation, announced today it has commercially launched a series of visible light disinfection SpectraClean™ luminaires to the market. These luminaires leverage developments in the disciplines of lighting science and microbiology to combine white and narrowband 405 nanometer (“nm”) visible light to meet ambient and task lighting requirements while providing a continuous, unobtrusive disinfection option for commercial applications.

The germicidal effects of narrowband visible light suppress a wide range of bacteria, molds, fungi and yeast. The antimicrobial light from SpectraClean induces the production of damaging reactive oxygen species in harmful microorganisms to accelerate cell inactivation.

Antimicrobial disinfection through illumination is proven effective with proper dosage levels on pathogens suspended in air or attached to a variety of surfaces, materials and objects.  SpectraClean resides outside the UV spectrum and will not damage non-harmful plant and animal cells or degrade inanimate materials.

Hubbell Lighting is the exclusive licensee of University of Strathclyde’s High Intensity Narrow Spectrum (“HINS”) lighting technology targeting Areas of Congregation and Food & Beverage in North and Central America. Areas of Congregation include recreation and wellness, education and childcare, hospitality and hotel, public transportation, cleanrooms and retail. Applications in the Food & Beverage industry include food manufacturing, packaging, processing, preparation and dining.

SpectraClean features the industry’s only line of commercial luminaires available with HINS technology offered with integrated wireless control support for four modes of operation and multiple standard lumen packages.

Advantages of SpectraClean Technology

SpectraClean has been designed to provide continuous environmental disinfection and complement cleaning and disinfection strategies. One of the biggest advantages of SpectraClean technology is what it doesn’t do – harm humans, materials, plants and any other items that are susceptible to harmful UV rays. Being chemical free, no harsh residues or films are introduced to the application and the technology has been proven to not accelerate spoilage or the integrity of the food.

Being a market leader in commercial and industrial lighting, Hubbell Lighting applied market intelligence and designed SpectraClean to be versatile by offering varied options for employing the technology in specific applications. Four unique modes of operation are being introduced for application specific results.

Blended: One luminaire, one mode of operation. This option discreetly combines SpectraClean with white light to provide class leading illumination and continuous disinfection in high use areas such as office environments, classrooms, transportation hubs and public restrooms while maintaining the appearance of a traditional white LED light source.

Blended Plus: One luminaire, two modes of operation. This combines the SpectraClean blended mode of enhanced white light for periods of occupation with a powerful HINS cycle of 405 nm light during unoccupied periods for accelerated disinfection.

Independent: One luminaire, two modes of operation. This configuration isolates white light for times of use and 405 nm disinfection light for periods of disinfection. 

Dedicated: One luminaire, one mode of operation. A 405 nm light source only used in disinfection mode to complement other light sources in the space. Dedicated mode is an advantage for task-oriented applications like food processing facilities.

Columbia Lighting is integrating SpectraClean technology into these popular luminaires: SCCT, SCVM, SCST, SCLT, and SCVW. These SpectraClean luminaires are compatible with most standard control devices and require no special equipment, knowledge, or skill for an electrical contractor to install.

Hubbell Outdoor Lighting Introduces New Intercept Flood Luminaire

High-Powered LED Flood Ideal for Sports Venues and Large-Scale Applications

Greenville, SC – July 9, 2018 – The all-new Intercept flood luminaire from Hubbell Outdoor Lighting solves the most prevalent issues negatively impacting sports venues today: short lamp life and glare. Intercept is the ideal LED solution for not only sports stadiums and entertainment arenas, but the general and security lighting of large commercial and industrial environments such as intermodal port, rail centers and airports.

Intercept establishes a new benchmark for glare control with its innovative use of low glare shield technology. Glare issues are a primary concern of large-scale floodlighting applications, and this is especially true for sports venues of all types, be it professional, amateur and even municipal recreation.

The LED optics of Intercept are strategically recessed in a low-glare shield to ensure an ideal mix of optical accuracy, glare control and minimal spill light. The low glare shield on Intercept is unique, having been designed so it would minimally impact the performance. Competitive luminaries on the market that employ similar optical designs have to compensate for performance losses, which increases power, resulting in higher energy costs for the customer.

Scalable LED modules allow for the Intercept to be optimized for each situation or application. Unique low glare shields are then used to ensure minimal negative impact on light output. This level of glare control reduces the candela per meterᶺ2 outside of the beam by 92 percent while affecting the lumen output of the product by less than 10 percent. The result is a 37 percent reduction in the Glare Rating when compared to current industry standards.

The end result is an enhanced experience for customers, patrons and sporting participants.

One of the primary advantages of LED luminaires is the inherent value in the longevity of the product. Intercept features a dynamic thermal management design that maximizes heat dissipation to increase the life of the luminaire. Built-in surge suppression adds an additional layer of protection for the Intercept’s driver, which can be integral or remote.

Intercept is simple to install, operate and control. It features modular optical assemblies, which allow lumen output scalability. When 90,000 lumens aren’t needed to light the field or arena, it’s possible to reduce LED count to precisely optimize output. It also features a variety of NEMA Flood distributions, color temperatures and CRI options. The uniformity of the light is enabled by precision TIR optics to ensure Intercept helps sporting venues comply with any and all TV broadcast standards.

Flexible control solutions, both wired and wireless, contribute to ease of operations. Intercept is capable of providing on/off control to a wireless, fully scheduled system, and it features push button control, scheduling and theatrical control for dimming and effects.
