This new venture with AHPharma illustrates our dedication toward meeting customer and partner demands for high-quality, easy-to-use LED lighting solutions, no matter the industry or application,” says Scott Holland, president & CEO of i-lighting, LLC.
North East, Maryland (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
i-lighting™, the leading manufacturer of the proprietary LED Lighting Simplified connection technology, has partnered with AHPharma, Inc., a leading manufacturer and designer of services and products for the food animal industry, to introduce AviLighting™, the first high-intensity LED lighting system engineered specifically for poultry rearing facilities. The new, dimmable solution reduces energy costs by 50 percent when compared to competitive poultry industry LED lighting systems, while delivering biologically-humane lighting to poultry according to animal welfare humane requirements.
“This is the perfect partnership between two experts in their respective fields,” says Scott Holland, president & CEO of i-lighting, LLC. “With more than 100,000 chicken and turkey houses based throughout the United States and thousands more abroad, i-lighting is poised to seize this opportunity and expand our resources toward the international industrial marketplace. This new venture with AHPharma illustrates our dedication toward meeting customer and partner demands for high-quality, easy-to-use LED lighting solutions, no matter the industry or application.”
“This cooperative effort combines the best of both worlds,” adds Dr. James L. McNaughton, president & CEO of AHPharma. “We approached i-lighting with the AviLighting concept based on our expertise in the food safety industry and they worked with us for months to develop LED lighting that greatly reduces the long-term costs of integrators and growers in addition to creating a more productive growing environment for poultry. AviLighting is the next-generation LED lighting solution for a marketplace that is eagerly awaiting its introduction.”
The new AviLighting LED lighting system was co-engineered by Scott Holland of i-lighting and Dr. McNaughton of AHPharma to meet the commercial live production lighting needs of areas related to bird migration/attraction and the brooding of chickens, turkeys and other poultry. Powered by AC to DC voltage controller voltage DC-direct voltage, or optional solar panels, with back-up power capability, this includes lowering energy costs by 86% to 96% when compared to the use of incandescent or cold-cathode lighting and by 50 percent over other ceiling socket-driven LEDs that meet poultry industry lighting requirements.
In addition, AviLighting was designed as a dual colored LED Feeder Light that can typically be used as the sole light source or as a supplement to existing ceiling LEDs to attract chicks evenly to feed and watering areas. AviLighting can be placed in growout spaces as a migration aid to promote the natural migration from brooding to growing areas or used with flocks to reduce excessive heat stress during day and feed withdrawal periods that simulate increased water and feed consumption. For those houses containing dimmable LEDs, supplemental AviLighting can also be installed to further promote very early brooding light attraction. Other benefits include:
- Longevity: guaranteed for 10 years (100,000+ hours)
- Simplicity: installation is intuitive, simple, and can be completed in minutes. NO WIRES are required. The system operates off low-voltage currents that are sent down the shock cable and auger line to provide wireless energy transfer
- Scalability: new units can be placed on the line to immediately emit as much light as necessary
- Dimmable: wireless remote controls give the operator wireless dimming power for each line of lights
- Industry standards: Only light source that meets the mandated min. consistent 4 fc requirement at feed/water and minimizes “starve-outs of lost birds”
