Mega brilliant: Redesigned Acion accent light by Amerlux

Amerlux unveiled the newly redesigned Acion, exterior accent lighting ideal for landscapes, including small signs and architectural features. Using the latest in LED technology, Acion is offered in a choice of beam spreads, finishes, and color temperatures, while a glare shield is also available. All components are encapsulated inside a single enclosure designed for performance in weather resistant applications. Three styles include a small accent light, large accent light, and wall mounted fixture. Offered in 10 and 17 wattages, Acion luminaires deliver up to 1,500 lumens and operates on universal 120-277-volt systems with auto sensing. With beam spreads ranging from 10 to 60 degrees and a secondary shaping lens, the luminaires are available in four color temperatures: 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K.

The fixtures are IP67-rated and sealed optically with a two-screw integral driver, which provides access without disturbing the optical chamber seal. A flush lens prevents water deposits in upward facing applications, and the fixture design allows a .5-inch National Pipe Straight Mechanical (NPSM) wire entry. The fixtures have vertical aiming, tamper-resistant tooled locking after final aiming.

Acion dims with an electronic low voltage dimmer (ELV) on 120-volt systems. Small and large LED accents are offered with yoke and knuckle mount options.  A wall mount is also offered. Powdercoat and hard-anodized finishes are available, including satin black, classic bronze, green, textured black, white and custom. Glare shield options are available for installation in the field. Ground stakes are offered for small and large accent lights.
