GM Accomplishes First Major LED Lighting Replacement with ALLED High Bay Series

The General Motors (GM) Lordstown Assembly Complex became the first GM facility to accomplish one of the world's largest LED lighting replacements, throughout its entire 815,000 square foot. The Stamping Plant has been able to reduce its energy consumption by over 80% by replacing the existing 1,328 1000W and 283 400W Metal Halide fixtures with 1,246 ALLED High Bay lights ranging from 90W to 360W.

The ALLED High Bay Series is a highly efficient, most advanced lighting fixture designed to operate for over 150,000 hours without maintenance. In addition, the ALLED High Bay fixtures installed at Lordstown are equipped with ALLink, the industry's first, fully-integrated and built-in wireless control system.

"ALLink provided Lordstown with an unprecedented opportunity," GM Lordstown's Site Utilities Manager, Chuck Simpson said, "Due to the SNAP wireless mesh networking operating system of ALLink, we can wirelessly control our lights without installing a separate control system and adding additional servers. Further, Allink was already built into each light fixture so we only had to deal with one supplier, which was important in a project of this size."

The ALLink wireless integration has given the Stamping Plant the ability to customize and schedule specific light levels according to the tasks being performed in each work area. The Stamping Plant can increase light output in designated areas if needed or dim the fixtures in between breaks and shift changes. In addition, Lordstown added wireless light switches along the aisles for quick and easy manual control of the lights outside of the building management system.

Starting in July, 2013, the West Plant Body Shop and East Plant General Assembly Plant will begin to convert all of their existing 400W Metal Halide fixtures to the ALLED HB2-22 High Bay fixture.

"To our knowledge, this is the world's largest indoor LED installation with this type of built-in, fully integrated wireless control system" said David McAnally, President of ALLED Lighting Systems. "GM is clearly sending a signal to the world that it is going to be a leader in the industry in innovative, green energy solutions for its facilities."
