Lighting Innovation: From Edison to PMC Lighting

By July 31, 2019News, Uncategorized

PMC Lighting prides itself on bringing innovative, fresh ideas to life within the lighting industry. 

With the technological advances of lighting that have taken place in the 140 years since Thomas Edison’s first successful incandescent light bulb prototype in 1879, we would say choices in lighting have become endless. The PMC Lighting catalog certainly reflects and represents the advances in technology and design.

The Power to Fight Germs

PMC Lighting’s pūr-led™ collection adds the power of Vital Vio’s patented VioSafe® White Light Disinfection® technology to clean, modern, and stylish luminaires. It is now possible to fight germs by simply turning on a light switch. This technology has been proven both safe and effective in killing gram negative and gram positive bacteria, bacterial endospores, yeast, mold, and fungi. And because we can create a Build-2-Spec fixture, you will achieve the perfect blend of design form and disinfecting function for any room or structure. 

The Power To Change Color

Set the mood, enhance energy, and add style with PMC’s Aura Tunable Solutions. Aura brings the ability to harness the power and intensity of light and color to create a vibrant atmosphere or, conversely, a relaxing and peaceful setting. Lighting in offices or schools can be used to enhance the mood, focus, and performance of both employees and students. Aura Tunable Solutions offers you the control to adjust the color and intensity of light in any space. 

Applications with Aura include highlighting the architectural features of buildings, creating a memorable experience for spectators at sporting venues, or elevating the shopping experience for consumers. The uses for tunable lighting are varied and PMC Lighting has solutions that can be implemented into just about every one of our luminaires with LED sources. Whether you choose linear or downlights, curved or troffers, PMC Lighting has the fixture and light sources to address both your tunable and design needs.  

The Power to Light on a Curve

PMC Lighting’s ArcX Collection provides lighting designers the capability to design non-linear lighting. Curved on the horizontal plane, ArcX allows construction of a myriad of system contours and shapes, making each lighting application and the space it illuminates truly unique. Our ArcX Collection affords designers a realm of possibilities with fixtures limited only by creative imagination. 

The Power of LED Lighting

LED lighting is much more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, has a much longer lifespan than other options, and its brightness and color can be adjusted. In addition, LED lights need no ‘warm-up’ period and light can be aimed in any direction. LEDs cause no color wash-out making them ideal for displays and retail applications. Since LEDs contain no mercury or other hazardous substances, they are an environmentally friendly lighting option. 

As technology continues to evolve and new innovations are introduced, PMC Lighting is committed to be at the forefront of offering new and exciting options to our product line.
