This model comes with an extendable LCD control panel, Smart Battery Management charging design, Fast Charge Technology, and energy-saving GreenPower UPS™ ECO Mode. The OL1000RTXL2U offers generator compatibility and delivers clean AC power with zero transfer time. This model can use the BP36V60ART2U Extended Battery Module for expanded runtime and faster restoration of full backup power with Fast Charge Technology.

  • Data Line Surge Protection
    Data line surge protection prevents power surges that travel through telephone and Ethernet lines causing damage to electronics.
  • Double-Conversion Topology
    Provides consistent, clean, and nearly perfect power, regardless of the condition of incoming power. Systems with this technology operate on isolated DC power 100% of the time and have a zero transfer time because they never need to switch to battery. Double-conversion UPS systems are designed for high-end system components, corporate servers, lab equipment, and other sensitive electronic devices.
  • LCD Control Panel
    Displays UPS status data and configures operating settings from up to 10 ft. away (DB26 cable not included). The LCD control panel displays and allows configuration of IP address settings when an RMCARD205 is installed.

Cloud

There has been a lot of talk about cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models these days but both are relatively new to the lighting industry. Let’s take a look at what they are as well as their roles in commercial lighting.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go or subscription-based pricing. Cloud computing means that instead of all the computer hardware, software, and data that you are using sitting somewhere inside your company’s network, it’s provided and managed for you as a service by another company and you access it over the Internet.

Lumens

This article is an excerpt from a technical brief, “Understanding LM-80, Lumen Maintenance, and LED Fixture Lifetime,” by Philips Color Kinetics.

Test results of lumen maintenance in conventional and LED light sources differ considerably. This is known as the lumen maintenance gap. These tests are performed to determine the useful life of a light source. But how do we compare lighting technologies satisfactorily if test results of a same designation do not mean the same thing? These lumen maintenance measurement distinctions are those we will examine in this article, as a clear understanding of this gap will have a significant impact on the installation, maintenance and replacement cost calculations of lighting products.
