SONARAY™ LED Lighting to Exhibit New LED Horticulture Grow Fixtures at Cultivate’17 in Columbus, Ohio July 15th-18th
(Verona, Virginia – June 1, 2017) SONARAY™ (www.sonarayled.com), an innovative lighting brand focusing on industrial, marine, and horticultural LED grow lighting today announced plans to exhibit at Cultivate’17 in Columbus, Ohio July 15th-18th. Cultivate is a preeminent exhibition, networking, and learning event that attracts a diverse group of leaders and attendees from all functional areas of the green/horticulture industry.
SONARAY™ will be displaying a family of fixtures ranging from the 65-watt horticulture light bar (designed for vertical farming applications) all the way up to a more traditional 500-watt LED greenhouse luminaire. The family also includes versions of the greenhouse luminaire in 150 and 300-watt versions.
The luminaires carry an IP66 rating, indicative of the fixtures’ degree of protection relative to the intrusion of dust, water, or foreign substances into the fixture itself. The IP66 rating also means the luminaires can work well in dusty or wet environments which may be subjected to splash or spray down as is often found in an agricultural environment.
According to John Vidaurrazaga, Manager of Business Development; “Our new line of horticulture LED lighting enables us to provide added advantages to growers of various species of plants and foliage. These species may be of edible, medicinal, or ornamental variety, dependent upon the type and color spectrum of the fixture used. Our new line is extremely rugged, has performed well in tests for accelerating growth cycles for various plants, and is designed to consume much less energy and save commercial growers time and money.” He adds, “We understand that with the growing population in our world the necessity for faster grower-to-table delivery and the ability to grow in areas not normally conducive to regular growth of plants will be essential. We hope to play a small part in the process of increased and affordable food supply with our fixtures.”
The fixtures also carry a rated lifetime of more than 50,000 hours of performance and come with a choice of several beam angles. They will be on display in booth 1540 of the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
SONARAY™ is a strategic business line for DASCOM, a Hong Kong based technology enterprise that does business in 86 countries globally. The Americas headquarters for the company is based in Central Virginia where product management, marketing, sales, technical support, lighting layout, and warehousing is located.

SONARAY’s Acorn to speak at 2017 Virginia Environmental Health & Safety Conference
(Verona, Virginia – August 21, 2017) SONARAY™ (www.sonarayled.com), an innovative lighting brand focusing on industrial, marine, and horticultural LED grow lighting today announced President & CEO Ron Acorn will be a featured speaker at the Virginia Environmental Health & Safety (VEHS) Conference (http://vamanufacturers.com/events/) in Richmond on September 29th.

It is the premiere event of the year where Virginia industry, regulators, legislators and allies join together for information, best practices, and technology sharing.”
The event will be held September 28th and 29th at the Westin Hotel in Richmond.

The company has also been the recipient of utility company rebates for the project, and should see a payback on the lighting retrofit in less than one year, while improving light output and safety.
SONARAY™ has Americas Headquarters in Central Virginia approximately 2 ½ hours from Washington, D.C. SONARAY™ fixtures are used in a variety of demanding applications and are noted for their excellent dust, moisture, and impact resistance, exceptional lumen output, and rugged design.

SONARAY™ LED Lighting announces DLC Listing and NSF Certification for new Obi Light Bar Products
(Verona, Virginia – December 12, 2017) SONARAY™, a central Virginia-based manufacturer of industrial, horticulture, and maritime LED lighting fixtures today announced it has obtained DLC listing and NSF certification for its new Obi Light Bar product offering.
Noted for their extreme versatility, since they are available in 2-foot or 4-foot lengths, and can be bracketed for use from a single Light Bar up to five Light Bars per mounting, Obi brings enhanced lumen output of up to 150 lumens per watt, and a sleek new design with choices of either frosted or clear diffusers so they are as aesthetically appealing as they are durable.
Obi Light Bars are available in a variety of beam angles ranging from 30 degrees to 130 degrees for narrow and wide light distribution applications. The fixtures also carry an IP66 rating, indicative of their ability to be highly resistant to steam, fumes, water contact, spray, dust, and condensation. The fixtures have been tested to water spray pressure up to 3000 PSI.
Additionally, the luminaires have an impact rating of IK09, meaning they are well protected against external mechanical impact.
According to John Vidaurrazaga, SONARAY™ Product Manager, “Obi Light Bars are exciting and extremely flexible products. Common uses can range from offices and warehouses to food processing plants, natatoriums, and car washes. The new listings compliment the great features because now the fixtures may be eligible for utility company rebates and will also allow entities such as poultry and meat processing plants the opportunity to use these luminaires in their food processing environments.”
Robert Seward, National Sales Manager for SONARAY™ North America adds: “Obi Light Bars are extremely competitively priced and really provide customers unmatched flexibility and feature offerings. They have serial connection capability, come with standard dimming, and the new certifications mean a whole different category of customer can now benefit from these feature-rich products at very affordable pricing. Because of energy savings and potential rebates, return on initial investment can be very short with ongoing savings over the life of the luminaire.”
