Innovative Lighting receives Platinum Innovators Award at BICSI Conference

[Des Moines, IA September 12, 2018]The 2018 Cabling Innovators Awards celebrates the most innovative applications of cabling and communications technology products, applications, and projects of 2018. Hosted by Cabling Installation & Maintenance, the awards were presented at the BICSI 2018 Fall Conference in San Antonio, Texas. BICSI is a professional association supporting the advancement of the information and communications technology (ICT) community.

Innovative Lighting, Waldinger Corporation, General Cable, & Panduit received a Platinum Award for their joint efforts on the Waldinger Corporation project. Waldinger is a full-service mechanical and electrical contractor. The Platinum Award is the highest honor given at the Cabling Innovators Awards. The Platinum Award is earned for demonstrating superb innovation that is characterized by a groundbreaking approach to meeting a need, or a groundbreaking level of performance, efficiency, or ease of use.

Harry Aller, Innovative Lighting CTO, and Howard Spencer, Waldinger Corporation Structured Cabling Manager, formally accepted the award on September 11 at the event.

“It’s always an honor to win an award like this, but we couldn’t have done it without the trust from the team at Waldinger Corp.” Aller said.

The Waldinger Corporation project consisted of replacing Waldinger’s open office lighting with GENISYS PoE Lighting. Their current lights were difficult to maintain and expensive to operate. By retrofitting Waldinger’s existing pendant fixtures and placing GENISYS inside, their fixtures became easy-to-use and customizable with money-saving results all while keeping the contemporary aesthetic that their existing pendants provide.
