Victoria, BC – First Light Technologies has announced its SCL series commercial solar luminaire has been significantly upgraded. As part of the company’s mission to deliver continually better solar lights, First Light has enhanced the light’s form, internal design and controller to improve performance and reliability. The result is a unique shoe box style solar fixture that will produce more light, have more lighting performance options and have even better reliability.

SCL Solar Luminaire – More Light, Better Flexibility 

The SCL now features motion sensing capabilities, wireless app controls and more lighting profile options, including real-time based lighting profiles that will dim or turn off a light a certain time. The light output of the SCL solar luminarie has also increased to between 860 and 1075 lumens of light depending on its location and the chosen lighting profile.

“These improvements reinforce the SCL as the standard when lighting outdoor spaces cost-effectively,” said First Light CEO Sean Bourquin. “The new features included with SCL series allow us to offer our customers better performance, an even simpler install and reliability.”

The SCL solar luminaire has been a popular choice across the U.S. for projects in need of outdoor lighting because of its unique self-contained design and the elimination of the need to install electrical wires. This has resulted in significant savings for organizations and municipalities while also offering immunity to power outages and no ongoing carbon emissions.

The new SCL is the latest in a series of focused improvements made to First Light products in its drive to provide better, simpler solar lighting. The company also recently announced a major improvement of it’s IPL architectural light and the introduction of real-time based lighting profiles in it’s solar luminaire products.

The improvements are based on a continuous improvement program that incorporates feedback from customers, the results of an extensive long-term testing program and years of real-world experience in the field. The aim is to give customers more options to optimize light levels when users need it, and to further demonstrate that First Light products are the simplest way to light outdoor spaces.
