tions. Future development is focused on increasing optical efficiencies and driving lower energy
consumption without compromising lighting quality.
LEDs: We know that many luminaire designs
indoors and out look like legacy fixtures with
LEDs supplanting a lamp of some type. Clearly,
Invue Arbor and some of your other products
are far different from legacy fixtures. How does
your team start a product development like Invue
Arbor? Do you conceive of the shape and lines
before even contemplating how to make it work
optically? Is there an industrial design-type process that happens before you tackle the electrical, mechanical, optical, and thermal problems?
Siderius: For over 12 years Eaton has developed a massive equity in North American manufacturing and design of LED technology. We have
talented industrial design and product development teams working out of our Peachtree City Innovation Center. WaveStream technology opens up new possibilities for shape and size that inspire
new design language. Once the outer boundaries of the optics and
mechanical needs are defined by the development team, our industrial designers create what they feel suits modern trends in architectural design and cultural values. The final design is the result
of collaborations from sales, marketing, manufacturing, quality,
end users, and suppliers.
LEDs: How is the light engine implemented in Invue Arbor? The
LEDs must be hidden in the outer ring. What type of LEDs are used
(mid or high power)? Where is the driver? Are the surfaces of the
outer ring sufficient for thermal management or are there thermal
elements that we don’t see?
Siderius: The LED modules are located within the outer ring
and integrally thermal managed to operate in an overall ambient
environment of 40°C. Our thermal management for the driver and
LEDs far exceeds the typical 25°C nighttime environment to promote
extended product life and lumen maintenance.
LEDs: What are the limits of WaveStream in outdoor applications? Can it or is it serving in street-lighting applications or is area
lighting the limit? What do you need to do to serve street lighting?
We know that edge-lit planar light engines can reduce glare, and
isn’t that a good idea for all outdoor lighting?
Siderius: The purpose of WaveStream was to create products
for use in people spaces, rather than lighting large parking spaces.
WaveStream is best suited, but not limited to, campus applications
such as hospitals and universities, public parking garages, downtown commercial public spaces, or streets. The optics have been
optimized for mounting heights of 10 to 24 ft, where the product is
required to become more intimate with the pedestrian, assisting in
wayfinding while promoting the value of the space. Just as with any
LED platform, our talented team of designers and engineers will
continue to push where we can utilize our WaveStream technology.
LEDs: Winning awards is nothing new for Eaton and indeed you
have your own Source Awards for lighting design. Still, we hope you
consider the Sapphire Award among the top achievements for Invue
Arbor. How did you make the decision to enter our Sapphire pro-
gram? And what was the reaction of your product team to the win?
Siderius: We are excited to have been recognized with such a
prestigious award. It validates the many hours of work and risks we
take to create innovative products and advance lighting design to
state of the art.
Eaton’s Sapphire Award-winning Arbor Invue LED luminaire marries
visual comfort with safety and style for outdoor spaces.
