Precision-Paragon Releases Lighting Layout Tool

Today, energy-efficient lighting manufacturer Precision-Paragon [P2] announced the availability of its LiteProQD 3D photometric modeling tool on its website at http://www.p-2.com.

The online tool enables lighting professionals to quickly and easily plan energy-efficient-lighting layouts that use Precision-Paragon [P2] fixtures and retrofit kits. The tool allows users to develop their own layouts, or automatically generate layouts that deliver a targeted illumination level or lighting power density (LPD).

“Before, you had two options for planning lighting layouts,” said Joe Martin, [P2] vice president and general manager. “You could develop layouts manually, or you could use expensive and complex photometric software to create accurate models of illumination levels. LiteProQD is a third option.”

This option is both free and straightforward to use. [P2] has posted an introductory screencast for the LiteProQD tool on its website, and will be releasing more advanced training materials in the near future.

[P2] has made photometric data available for the majority of the 200+ lighting fixtures and retrofit kits listed on its website, and LiteProQD makes use of this data. LiteProQD allows users to specify a host of custom variables, including custom room dimensions, fixture mounting options and work heights. It auto-generates lighting layouts to meet target illumination levels, a specified number of luminaires, maximum LPD or specific grid layouts. Layouts can be viewed in 2D profile and overhead views, and in a 3D two-thirds overhead view.

Once a layout is generated, the tool models luminaire layout, the average illuminance throughout the space being modeled and the total LPD. The final layout can be easily printed and shared with coworkers, clients and partners.

“Our goal as a company is to help our customers create successful lighting projects,” said Martin. “LiteProQD makes that easier than ever.”

The LiteProQD online tool can be launched from product pages throughout http://www.p-2.com, and new users can become familiar with the tool by watching a screencast here.
