Amerlux's Innovative Hornet HP Downlights Win Architectural SSL Product Innovation Award in Downlight Category, with Special Citation Award for Hornet Retrofit

FAIRFIELD, N.J., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amerlux CEO/President Chuck Campagna announced that Amerlux's Hornet HP Downlights have won Architectural SSL Magazine's Product Innovation Award in the category of Downlights, with a Special Citation Award for the Hornet Retrofit. Amerlux, a global leader in lighting, product innovation, manufacturing and creative lighting solutions, has engineered these downlights for ambient and task lighting in retail, hospitality and commercial environments.

Amerlux's Innovative Hornet HP Downlights Win Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards.

"The Hornet HP Downlights are an economical way to replace 50-watt MR16 or 20-watt metal halide fixtures with a more efficient, long life energy source," according to the Architectural SSL magazine editor. "Fully dimmable to less than five percent, the beams are easily field changed with optical film. LED heads and drivers are fully replaceable." According to a judge, "The Hornet is an intriguing product that fills a niche in the industry."

Energy Star rated, Hornet HP is small in size but big on performance. The 3.5-inch Hornet HP Downlights deliver 986 lumens and an 8,569 CBCP (center beam candle power), equal to the output of the 20w ceramic metal halide, but with the control and crisp color of the MR16 halogen. The fixtures provide excellent control, color and performance.

"We are proud that our Hornet HP Downlights have received two Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards," explained Amerlux CEO/President Chuck Campagna. "Hornet offers high quality, energy efficient downlighting for commercial, retail and hospitality settings and they are backed by our proprietary LED technology, service and warranty."

Hornet HP Downlights are available in round/square apertures, as well as open/lensed and trim/trimless styles for both new construction and remodeling projects.  Styles include Downlight, Adjustable, Pinhole Adjustable, Pinhole Slot, Pinhole Shower, Lensed Downlight, and Lensed Wall Wash.  Available in a variety of color temperatures, CRI options and beam spreads—Narrow Spot, Spot, Narrow Flood, Medium Flood, Flood, and Wide Flood. Hornet HP uses an electronic constant current LED driver and ELV or Triac dimming, which ensures compatibility with existing dimming systems. Trim finishes are offered in Matte Black, Matte White and Matte Silver.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
