ETC products recognized for excellence by IES

Each year, ETC products are recognized by a number of organizations for their advanced technology—and 2020 is no exception. The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) has recently announced that three of ETC’s products have been selected for the 2020 Progress Report: the Navis 100 luminaire, the F-Drive centralized LED driver solution, as well as Master Phase Loss Detector 2. The esteemed Progress Report makes its selections based on a product’s “uniqueness, innovation, and significance to the lighting industry.”

In addition to earning recognition in the 2020 Progress Report, F-Drive also won the “Ballasts, Transformers, Drivers, Systems & Kits” category of this year’s LightFair Innovation Awards. A panel of judges from the IES and IALD determined the winners through a rigorous two-day judging process.

“Our product development team is constantly seeking out ways to improve both the function and the aesthetic of the next generation of lighting solutions. These award wins reflect ETC’s dedication to innovation,” said Chris Patton, Architectural Market Manager for ETC.

Together, Navis 100 luminaires and F-Drive have revolutionized what’s possible in commercial LED systems. ArcSystem Navis is a line of LED luminaires featuring pristine light as well as a modular design for hassle-free and customizable installations. For centralized LED power controls, F-Drive is a new system offering an intuitive design with mix-and-match output cards. Each solution is designed to work seamlessly with the other in one cohesive system.

The Master Phase Loss Detector 2 (MLPD2) is an advancement in emergency detection and control bypass. With extensive, customizable input and output configurations, the Master Phase Loss Detector 2 detects emergency situations from a variety of triggers and can send multiple control bypass output commands simultaneously. It is ideal for large installations where many emergency control commands need to be sent simultaneously, or for environments like theme park attractions where multiple conditions or even operator inputs need to trigger “emergency” situations.
