ITC in Cruise Industry News

January 20th, 2015 by rebeccav

Cruise Ad Blog Post_1-20-15ITC looks to build product awareness by advertising in the winter issue of Cruise Industry News. As a lighting manufacturer we understand the importance of lighting and how it can positively or negatively affect a passengers travel experience. An illuminated grab handle mounted in the cabin bathroom gives extra support for those who have yet to get their sea legs. While display lighting encourages extra on-board purchases or an extra trip to the buffet. Soft diffused lighting adds to the relaxing and refreshing ambiance of the spa and exterior flood lighting safely lights the way, following an evening show. As travelers ourselves, we want to educate our customers on how putting a little extra time into the lighting plan, can leave a lasting impression and keep passengers coming back year after year.

LEDS – Shedding Light on the Future of Retail Lighting

November 19th, 2014 by rebeccav

Princess Jewelry Case_Blog PostLighted merchandise will attract consumers and in turn yield greater sales than non-lighted merchandise. However, choosing the optimal light fixture for an application requires an understanding of options. Today, retailers have a whole new set of options stemming from the advancement of LED technology. Proper application of the new LED technology can increase profitability. However, improper application may lead to disappointment. This article will identify several key components and concepts to consider when selecting one LED light over another or replacing a halogen or fluorescent fixture with an LED fixture.

The three big common benefits of using LED lighting in merchandise displays are: lower heat, longer life, and lower power consumption. The value of these benefits to retailers are several fold. First, the lower heat generation reduces the risk of product degradation and injury to workers while retrieving product in cases. Additionally, the replacement of multiple halogen and PAR 30 and 38 fixtures can reduce the ambient operating temperature of a store and thereby reduce air conditioning costs. Second, LEDs in luminaires often have a life of 50,000 hours or five times the life of fluorescents and twenty-five times the life of halogens. Hence, there will be less bulb replacement and less maintenance cost. Moreover, the longer life of LEDs reduces the risk that a display will be dark during critical selling periods because of a bulb failure. Third, the substantial reduction in power consumption of LED luminaires over halogen bulbs and some inefficient fluorescent fixtures will lead to lower energy costs for the retailer. These lower energy costs will yield net profit increases.

ITC Lights Up New Industries with LEDs

November 19th, 2014 by rebeccav

Mike_in_GR_PressAfter 30 years of designing and manufacturing lighting for boats and RVs, ITC Inc. is lighting up retail stores, offices, homes, health facilities and cruise ships.

The company’s new LED lighting division called Elio is producing products for Carnival and Princess cruise lines, which are replacing hundreds of thousands of energy-eating incandescent light fixtures with low-watt, high intensity LED lighting fixtures.

“The math for them was simple,” ITC founder and CEO Dick Camarota said. “Replace 35 watt bulbs that require frequent replacement with 9 watt LED lights that use a one-third of the energy and last two-thirds longer, and there is huge savings for every ship in their fleet,” he said, noting electricity at sea is generated from fuel powered generators.
