The Texas Rangers have installed an LED system from Eaton at Globe Life Park in Arlington, TX. The system features control functions that will enhance the viewing experience for spectators while reducing energy use by as much as 60 percent.
“Reducing the fixture count [by approximately half] and being more energy efficient represents significant advantages and we’re especially impressed with the improved field lighting for our players, fans and broadcast partners,” says Rob Matwick, executive vice president, Business Operations for the Texas Rangers.
The new solid-state lighting system features Ephesus Stadium Pro lights and a DMX control system. The system interfaces with many common lighting and theatrical devices and is expandable to allow it to perform in harmony with other in-venue systems such as the scoreboard and ribbon boards. It includes full dimming from zero to 100 percent. Additionally, the touch screen controllers allow the event operations team to control dynamic lighting scenes and effects, as well as color temperature tuning from 4800 to 5600K, while maintaining specified illuminance levels on the playing surface.
