Columbia Lighting Introduces MultiPurpose Linear for Cost-Effective Continuous Lighting Applications


Performance without sacrifice to aesthetics or capability drove the development of the new MultiPurpose Linear from Columbia Lighting. With continuous illumination, integrated controls, multiple lens options and single or row mounting, MultiPurpose Linear is adaptable to any environment.

The versatility of the MultiPurpose Linear makes it appealing to a variety of decision makers involved in commercial lighting projects. Engineers will be empowered to specify target performance metrics, designers will be pleased with the aesthetics and users will have the option of adding on energy-saving control capabilities or tunable white.

The MultiPurpose Linear is available in 2ʹ, 4ʹ or 8ʹ lengths with multiple mounting options for every application, be it surface, wall, suspended, pendant, t-bar or continuous row. When row mounted, it provides a smooth, uninterrupted ribbon of light that can be specified with Wide and Narrow distribution options for open area or aisle applications.

While the MultiPurpose Linear comes standard with a white housing, current interior design trends dictated the need to bring additional housing options to the market. Matte Black and ZET Metallic Silver housings are also available to ensure the MultiPurpose Linear will complement the design ambitions of the space it occupies. The curved and flat lenses offer a soft, clean form with a smooth profile between lens and housing. It is also available without a lens if preferred, wire guards and decorative end caps.

The MultiPurpose Linear doesn’t compromise on performance. It features 1,700 to 17,000 available lumens with 90 CRI options and DLC Premium Qualified configurations.

Optional integrated controls in the MultiPurpose Linear include three modes of tunable white with SpectraSync™ and wired or wireless controls that can be scaled from standalone luminaire-based control, a small room network or a building-wide system with NX Distributed Intelligence™. These intuitive control capabilities from Hubbell Control Solutions address any code compliance needs, be it occupancy, vacancy, dimming and daylight harvesting or scheduling.

In applications where emergency operation is paramount, MultiPurpose Linear is labeled and certified to UL924 Emergency Lighting standards, including controls override features. During emergency operation, when the power is out, MultiPurpose Linear bypasses controls without hesitation. It returns to 100 percent power for safe egress of occupants.

Additional Features and Benefits of the MultiPurpose Linear: Uninterrupted ribbon of light, row mounting optional; Metal end caps standard, Decorative Injection Molded ABS material end caps optional; Long life 60,000 LEDs at L80 for reduced maintenance; Color consistency within a 3-step MacAdam ellipse and greater than 80 CRI; Optional integral emergency battery pack; Modular replaceable LED boards and driver accessible for future maintenance or upgrades; DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) qualified; Five year warranty (Terms and Conditions apply).
