Hubbell Lighting has worked hard to develop and maintain relevant and innovative products throughout our many years of operations. Despite our past success, today’s competitive environment and rapid transition to solid state lighting technology underscores the need for Hubbell to remain focused on the products and technologies that will propel us forward and contribute to our future success.
In addition to the technological advancements we are making, the US Government’s efficiency standards for metal halide luminaires are becoming more stringent with the most recent standards going into effect on February 10th, 2017. Details can be found here: US Government Efficiency Standards for Metal Halide Luminaires
These mandatory changes obsolete many HID ballasts used in our products today. As a result of this obsolescence, a number of older legacy sourced HLI products will be discontinued allowing us to focus on developing innovative lighting solutions that incorporate the latest technological advancements.
Recognizing some customers still prefer HID sources products, a collection of compliant products will be maintained and available beyond the February 10th deadline.
