RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Cyberlux Corporation , a leading provider of LED lighting solutions, announced today that the Company has been selected to provide portable task lighting for the City of New York's new 911 Public Safety Answering Center. Selected by Evans Consoles, the manufacturer of the new 911 Dispatch Command Consoles, the Cyberlux Portable LED Task Light will illuminate the work environment of the new 911 public safety call taking and dispatching operators. Cyberlux received an initial order from Evans Consoles for 355 units valued at over $64,000.

Evans Consoles (, the world leader in the design and manufacture of mission-critical custom control room solutions, selected Cyberlux to develop the LED Task Light in order to meet the energy-efficiency, durability and performance requirements of the new City of New York 911 Public Safety Answering Center (PSAC). Through the Cyberlux military specification (milspec) design/build process, Evans Consoles and Cyberlux collaborated to develop a lighting solution for the public safety call center market. The resulting milspec LED Task Light will replace the traditional fluorescent task lighting fixtures typically used in existing call centers.

The milspec LED Task Light performs for over 50,000 hours without a lighting element replacement, and operates with up to 52% more energy efficiency on low lighting levels and up to 31% more energy efficiency on high lighting levels when compared to traditional fluorescent task lighting. The Cyberlux milspec LED Task Lighting products provide up to 1000 lumens of illumination with 12 watts of power and utilize a patent-pending thermal management system for optimal lighting performance.

In addition, this Cyberlux milspec LED Task Light is the only LED task light available that is compatible with the Johnson Controls Personal Environments control center. The Johnson Control system is typically used by call center operators, including those in New York City, to control lighting, heating and air conditioning within their personal operating environment. The dual-arm milspec LED Task Light is adjustable and adaptable to any call center operator's lighting needs and is dimmed and controlled using the Johnson Controls system to vary the amount of light according to task.

"We are very pleased to partner with Evans Consoles to deliver this world- class milspec LED Task Lighting solution to a significant customer such as the City of New York. The new mission-critical 911 Call Center project is an example of the commercial product design/build capability that Cyberlux Corporation offers to customers such as Evans Consoles and the City of New York," said Mark Schmidt, president of Cyberlux. "Evans Consoles is a market leader, and we look forward to growing our business relationship as well as our distribution of milspec LED Task Lighting solutions as the need for next- generation energy-efficient lighting products continues to accelerate," continued Schmidt.
