Holophane Leader in Lighting Solutions
Acuity Distribution Center

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then walking through a lighted space is priceless. Viewing product performance, lighting effects, comparing different lighting sources, and comparing different styles of luminaires is a productive way to impart lighting understanding for both the lighting novice and the lighting expert.

The concept behind the new Acuity Brands Night Time Demo at Holophane headquarters in Granville, Ohio is to be able to walk through a series of outdoor lighting scenarios to experience the visibility and lighting quality of each design. In many cases an instantaneous comparison of systems can be viewed. For example, a comparison of a road lit with LED luminaires and a road lit with High Pressure Sodium luminaires can be made at several viewing stations.

This one-of-a-kind lighting experience is an invaluable asset to anyone responsible for specifying lighting products and can help you to far better understand the pros and cons to a wide variety of light sources, distributions, technologies and more.

HMS Lowering DeviceThe control of the Night Time Demo luminaires is accomplished with the latest technology. We use the ROAM system (Remote Operations Asset Management). Every luminaire is outfitted with a ROAM node which in this instance becomes a tour director's dream. Luminaires are grouped and turned on and off with the use of a tablet PC wirelessly connected to the internet and the ROAM web site. Want to see something different? Just ask your tour director and another comparison is under way.


Walk among different color temperature sources at 2000K, 3000K, 4000K, 5000K and 6000K. Being able to do this all in one place is extremely valuable. LED, conventional Metal Halide, High Pressure Sodium, and new MH sources can be examined and their lighting quality evaluated.

Also, study the difference between using full cutoff, cutoff and semi-cutoff systems. Check out the concept of vertical footcandles and roadway luminance as they relate to each lighting system. Type II, III and IV luminaires are demonstrated and their ability to light different width roads shed some light on luminaire classifications.

Experience the Night Time Demo and you will leave with a greater level of confidence that you understand first-hand what the different outdoor lighting technologies available today can offer you, and how they stack up side by side. Don't specify your next lighting installation without the assurance that you know you are making the best decision based on personal experience... come "experience lighting's best" at the Night Time Demo in scenic Granville, Ohio!

The Night Time Demo is also part of each Holophane Seminar. Check our online schedule for the dates of upcoming events. Or, call your local Holophane sales rep and arrange a special visit to see this one of a kind lighting experience.

Maximizing energy efficiency, eliminating dayburners, minimizing outages and many other advantages can be obtained through the ROAM networked control system. Be sure to visit the Night Time Demo to see this exciting new technology in action!

Below is a description of the entire Night Time Demo route and what you might expect to see and experience should you visit our facility.

1) HMS Demo
Attendees will take a short walk back to the HMS (High Mast) pole.  This pole is purposely short at 20 feet.  The short height allows for a complete lowering of the HMS ring for a demonstration of the system. 

2) LMS Demo
Attendees can take a short walk to the back parking lot to see a demonstration of the LMS (Low Mast) system. This optional station shows how the LMS system is easy to use. 

3) Decorative Outdoor
Attendees will get a close up look at a line of decorative postops.  This row of luminaires can be adjusted as new products are introduced.

4) Bern Park
A short walk past Mongoose parking units and then through the Bern Parking lot for a quick look at decorative parking installation.

5) Granville Walk
Attendees will walk past a series of Granville luminaires in front of Granville Bldg A.

6) Pechina Park, Premier Place
A comparison of cutoff Pechina on a taller pole and a close look at the cutoff Granville Premier lighting the parking areas.

7) LEDgend Lane
Attendees will get to experience LED lighting on this roadway section.  One group of LEDgends will have 6000K LEDs and one group will have 4000K LEDs, each in a staggered arrangement.  With both units on at the same time, the appearance of the luminaires with the difference color temperatures can be appreciated.  ROAM switching will allow for a quick change from the cooler to the warmer conditions while the attendees stand on the roadway. 

8) LEDgend Corner
Attendees will stand at the corner of two roads and compare two systems.  LED luminaires will be shown on LEDgend Lane and while Mongoose Full Cutoff HPS  luminaires and/or Cobrahead Full Cutoff  luminaires will light the perpendicular roadway.  The LED roadway can also be switched from the 6000K to 4000K for an added comparison while viewing each of the HPS systems.  This corner viewing is one of the key viewing aspects of the Night Time Demo as customers are able to view different systems without switching.  The LEDgend luminaires on LEDgend Lane will be dimmed to match the levels on Mongoose Road.

9) Mongoose Road
A short walk down Mongoose Road will allow attendees to view the performance of  Mongoose HPS.    

10) Teardrop Boulevard 
Stroll over to Teardrop Boulevard for a comparison of LED Teardrop Type IV luminaires and LEDgend Type III luminaires on the wide roadway section of the display.  Both units have 5000K color temperatures for yet another color temperature comparison.  The parking lot (simulated roadway) is 64’ wide to exemplify a wide street or boulevard.

11) Back to Mongoose Road
Halfway down Mongoose Road is another unique viewing station.  Here customers can view Estilo with the Cosmopolis MH lamp and compare it simultaneously with traditional cutoff HPS Cobraheads.

12) Granville Corner
Moving to Granville Corner, attendees will be able to compare Infrastructure Products like Estilo Cosmopolis and AEL Cobraheads on Mongoose Road with LED Granville and LED Postop Luminaires on Granville Street. 

13) Granville Street
