Ecosense thinks differently about the launch of lighting products. Most companies think about launching singular products or maybe a family of products. Ecosense creates systems of lighting. That’s what they did when they created the Trov system. It’s modular linear system of light for everything from basic cove lighting to feature wall grazing and wash lighting for the exterior and interior – once you get to know Trov, it becomes your go-to system for linear lighting.
Ecosense has done it again with Rise. Rise is an exterior lighting system, that takes a revolutionary look at how to perform what we’ve all come to think of as a mundane task – spot and flood lighting. What Ecosense understands is that scalable systems give lighting designers and architects incredible versatility in creating designs that amaze.
So What Is Rise?
The F380 is what happens when the F170 and F080 combine forces to create an incredibly powerful and dynamic lighting instrument.
These units can then be combined to create unique configurations to suit any imaginable application.
A Tool Like This Means You Can Start to Think Differently About You Exterior Lighting
Here’s a simple example. Perhaps you are lighting a building facade from across plaza. In the example below, two F080 heads are mounted to a single bracket with a one power feed, but head is specified with a different intensity and beam spread allowing you to evenly light up the facade of the building from a single position.
What ties the whole system together are some key specification features.
Each head of the rise system can be individually locked with a single set screw. That means pan and tilt are locked with a single captive hex-head screw.
Field Changeable Optics
They told you you’d be lighting a 6’ Tall by 15’ wide sign, at the last minute it became a 4’X4’. Don’t worry, with a simple, in-field lens change you can adjust to field conditions.
ELV/Reverse phase dimming standard.
Enough said on that.
It’s All About CBCP
A final note on center beam candle power versus lumens per watt. In the age of LED we’ve gotten sucked into using lumens per watt as the sole metric defining luminaire efficacy. While this metric is fine for ambient light luminaires like troffers, it’s relatively meaningless when it comes to projector style fixtures like Rise. This is because what matters when looking at spot and flood luminaires is how much light is delivered to the target. Many manufacturers brag about the amount of lumens generated by their fixture, but in the projector market, excess lumens show up as glare and field-angle extra light instead of to-the-target illuminance. So if you’re specifiying a flood or accent light (or even a track head) look at center beam candle-power more than raw lumens.
