Dual-Lite, NX Distributed Intelligence & Prescolite Win EC&M 2022 Product of the Year Awards

GREENVILLE – April 28, 2022 — Dual-Lite, NX Distributed Intelligence and Prescolite, now brands of GE Current, a Daintree company, have officially won in three product categories of EC&M’s annual Product of the Year competition thanks to the Dual-Lite EZ-2 Series, NX Distributed Intelligence NXP2 Series and the Prescolite LiteFrame 2.0 Family.

Started in 2001, the EC&M Product of the Year competition recognizes excellence in new product development for the electrical industry in product design, as well as improvements in both safety and efficiency. Winners are selected based on the competition’s two-fold judging and voting process, which includes the opinions of EC&M magazine subscribers and a panel of hand selected judges that vote on each of the products entered into the competition, sorting them into 35 finalist categories each year.

  • Dual-Lite EZ-2 Series was the winner of the Security Equipment & Systems category. The Dual-Lite EZ-2 Series Emergency Light has been a top seller for the brand ever since it made its debut in 1982. Over the years, the EZ-2 series has built a solid reputation as one of the most recognized and requested emergency lights on the market. The redesigned EZ-2 Series LED Emergency Light has a smaller form factor to blend into the environment while providing nearly three-times the spacing using high-power LEDs. Also, battery maintenance is now much easier with the new front-access battery compartment. The sleek new look is more compact and powerful. Additional features include white or black finish options, long-life nickel metal hydride battery, optional Spectron self-test/self-diagnostics, fully adjustable lamp heads and an adaptor plate accessory for hassle-free retrofits.
  • NXP2 Series won in the Lighting Control Equipment category. The NX Distributed Intelligence NXP2 Series Lighting Control Panel is a robust and reliable panel that can operate standalone or as a NX networked device. The NX Panel meets all applicable code and energy requirements, is fully scalable, easy to install, and easy to program and control using the NX controlHUBB app. The NX Panel features industry recognized, robust mechanically latching relays and 0-10V dimming channels that can be controlled individually or in groups by any local input, system input, schedule, preset, or Building Automation System. Additional features include integrated NX SmartPORTs™, low voltage inputs, Normally Open (NO)/Normally Closed (NC) dry contact outputs, and optional UL924 support suitable for control of emergency lighting circuits.
  • Prescolite LiteFrame 2.0 Family was voted the top product in the Luminaires (Recessed) category. The LiteFrame 2.0 family brings a completely new downlight platform to Prescolite that upgrades optical performance, provides installation options, and offers functional solutions in 4″ and 6″ round aperture sizes up to 8000 lumens. Ideal for commercial applications like offices, retail, and hospitality, simply select the Fixture Module Assembly and Trim for a complete recessed luminaire that can directly install into a ceiling opening or snap into an optional plaster frame/housing for a traditional installation.  Whether dealing with varied mounting heights, the need to create visual interest, or dramatically changing the feel of the space, LiteFrame 2.0 has the varied solutions to do that and more. Offered in downlight, shallow downlight, lensed wall wash, and adjustable accents with a broad range of beam distribution, CCT and dimming protocol options, the LiteFrame 2.0 family provides flexibility to address the challenges below and above the ceiling plane.
