Eaton engineers realized that if LED technology was going to gain widespread acceptance, they needed to provide businesses with a viable alternative to mainstay, workhorse fluorescent battens.
The goal was fairly audacious, when you consider that they were aiming to replace a commodity product. Eaton needed to find a way to minimize energy consumption, maximize lumen output and optimize cost, all at the same time. The result: Eaton’s Crompack LED batten.
Eaton attacked the problem on multiple fronts. Rigorous design and testing resulted in LED strips that could produce a brighter light than ever before, while actually reducing materials costs. Then, leveraging advanced computer-aided design and prototyping — and years of lighting engineer experience — Eaton was able to cleverly design the Crompack fixture’s diffuser to exactly match the LED light source, achieving amazing transmission levels along with the perfect profile to direct the light. Eaton’s new Crompack LED fixture is able to produce over 10,000 lumens, which is class leading and a direct equivalent of fluorescent lamps. Finally LEDs could compete head to head with fluorescents in the competitive world of batten fittings.
