ionLUX™ High Bay Installation Shortlisted for Award

The shortlist for the 2016 Lux Awards has been announced and this year the list features a whole host of impressive projects and inventive new technology, including a nomination for the ionLUX High Bay installation by Ceravision at contact lens manufacturer CooperVision in the Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year category.

CooperVision is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of soft contact lenses. The company is dedicated  to  continually  bringing  a fresh perspective to the contact lens experience for practitioners and their patients.

After a complete survey, Ceravision’s in-house lighting design team created a scheme using ionLUX™ high bay luminaires together with the company’s ionCOM™ / ionSMART™ lighting control system.

Lighting levels have significantly increased from the 250 lux achieved previously in open areas (and much lower in aisles). 450 lux is now achieved in open areas and 300 lux in aisles. Whilst not the overriding objective of the reinstallation, a significant energy saving is now being achieved of 39%.

The full list of nominations can be found here.

Future Applications

Energy efficiency is a global driver within many markets and Ceravision’s core technology has the ability to address these markets. Due to the flexible nature of the technology we are able to facilitate a variety of power levels (400 W to 5 kW) and spectra ranging from visible to UV light.


Ceravision’s High Efficiency Plasma (HEP) light is particularly suited to medium and high power applications. The light is emitted from a very small source, which enables Ceravision to accurately focus and distribute the light. This in turn facilitates significantly greater optical performance.

Intellectual Property

Ceravision maintains an extensive Intellectual Property (“IP”) portfolio comprising Patents, Trade Marks and Design Rights.
