LED Dock Lighting

At Delta Wye Electric, we are continuously researching to find innovative, cost effective and energy efficient products.  With new advancements in Dock Lighting, there are many advantages to gain such as energy savings, reduced maintenance cost, and improved safety and productivity.  

Although there are many dock lighting products on the market, Delta Wye has found that Versa Light LED Dock Lights outperform the rest.   The unit, which incorporates state-of-the-art lighting technology, is engineered to deliver long-lasting performance in the most demanding dock applications.

Versa Light delivers maximum light output for full trailer illumination.  Not only does this improve safety, it can help improve productivity at the loading dock.  The patented design offers up to 85,000 hours in LED life.  This is 70% greater than other LED dock lights. LEDs do not have a filament and therefore, are better suited to withstand shock and vibration at your loading dock.

Additionally, Versa Light LEDs are protected by an aluminum heat sink, contributing to their durability. Unlike screw-in style LEDs or CFLs, the LED Versa Light head is securely fastened to the flex tube assembly. These features help reduce maintenance and repair costs.

Orion Energy Systems’ exterior lighting wins gold at Plant Engineering awards

Before/After Exterior LightingFluorescent technology designed to reduce energy consumption, costs by 50 percent in outdoor applications

Orion Energy Systems Inc.  was awarded first place in the lighting category at the Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards held Monday.

Introduced in 2009, Orion’s exterior lighting uses fluorescent technology to reduce energy consumption and costs by 50 percent when compared to high-intensity discharge lighting traditionally used to illuminate parking lots and other outdoor areas after dark.

In a reader vote by plant managers and other Plant Engineering magazine readers, Orion’s exterior technology was selected over Cooper Lighting’s LED exterior fixture for the gold award. Winners were announced in an awards ceremony during the publication’s annual manufacturing summit in Chicago.

“We’re honored to receive a top award from Plant Engineering magazine for the second year in a row,” said Orion CEO Neal Verfuerth. “The fact that the publication’s readers selected our Apollo® solar light pipe as the Grand Award winner last year and our energy efficient exterior platform this year validates that plant managers recognize Orion as the energy-efficiency technology leader.”  Click here to view entire press release.

Third Annual ‘Fore a Cure’ Golf Tournament

IMG_5913Delta Wye Electric was a proud sponsor of the Third Annual Fore a Cure, Natalie’s Wish golf tournament which raised $165,000 to fund Cystnosis research.  Ross Plastering of Anaheim was this year’s presenting sponsor and Sares-Regis Group was the silver sponsor. All event proceeds will fund research to find a cure for cystnosis, a rare metabolic disease that afflicts 500 children and young adults in the United States and 2,000 worlwide. The tournament field of 144 golfers enjoyed perfect weather at Coto de Caza Golf & Raquet Club. The day was followed up by the event’s silent and live auction.  It was a great pleasure for Delta Wye Electric to take part of this great cause and support The Cystnosis Research Foundation.

Delta Wye’s team of electrical experts can identify future electrical problems through the use of infrared cameras and help eliminate the need of future emergency calls.

The use of infrared red cameras in preventive and predictive maintenance is well established.  These cameras produce thermographic images and capture the temperature measurements that provide an early warning of potential equipment failures and unsafe working conditions.  As Ken Leonard and Robert Madding futher explains in a PlantServices.com article, infrared surveys are particularly important for electrical equipment because it’s usually critical to an enterprise’s mission.  Click here to read entire article.
