Exhibitor Design Guidelines
Three key considerations in designing an Exhibitor Lighting System
1) Socket Spacing
Consider line of sight and viewing perspective when deciding on socket spacing. More distant spacings (18″-24″) are the best choice for most festoon applications. Closer spacings (6″-12″) are appropriate for applications at closer viewing range. Any custom spacing is available on request.
2) Select the Best Light Source
0.48 Watt LEDs
With incredible life ratings, all Tokistar LEDs are ideally suited for continuous operation in commercial applications. LEDs rated at 0.48 watts provide a softer lighting effect and are the most energy-efficient choice. These LEDs consume so little energy they can span much greater distances from a single feed point.
Virtual Incandescent and Ultra Bright LEDs
1.8 Watt LEDs
Virtual IncandescentTM LEDs do a remarkable job of emulating traditional incandescent filaments. Ultra Bright LEDs do the same, while providing a brighter light source. Both LEDs are rated at 1.8 watts.
3) Globe Selection
Three different shapes are available: G-19, G-14 and S-14. Clear globes have excellent clarity and will emphasize distinct points of light. Frosted globes diffuse light and have a softer appearance. Each globe includes two O-rings for a secure and weatherproof seal to the socket. G-19 transparent colored globes create vibrant color. Virtual Incandescent LEDs are not recommended for use with frosted globes, and our xenon lamp is not for use with G-14 globes.
Part #: EX-MDA-WH (White)
Part #: EX-MDA-BK (Black)
For festoon applications to a catenary cable, our wire-rope adaptors securely hold each socket in place to a 1/16″ or 1/8″ diameter wire rope. Wire rope and all of its associated mounting hardware is not provided with the system.
Surface Mounting with Disks
Part #: EX-MD-WH (White)
Part #: EX-MD-BK (Black)
Exhibitor Series can be surface mounted to structures using mounting disks. One disk is required for each mounting socket. The socket can be snapped into the disk first, and then the entire assembly screwed in place to the structure.
Surface Mounting with Straps
Part #: EX-MS-WH (White)
Part #: EX-MS-BK (Black)
Exhibitor Series may also be surface mounted to structures using our mounting straps. Two straps are required for each mounting socket. Straps are positioned on either side of the socket, and then screwed securely to the structure.
Panel Extrusion Mounting
Part #: EX-SH
For installations to flat panels or extrusions up to 0.060″, Tokistar offers stainless-steel panel fasteners. The socket assembly is inserted from below, then the panel fastener and grommet are pressed in place from above.
Part #: EXC-SPL
Part #: EXC-EC
End Caps are required at the end and beginning of each run of fixture. When EXC fixtures are positioned end-to-end, a splice is needed to seam them together.
Maximum Run Lengths
To minimize voltage drop and keep conductors safely within their ratings, do not exceed the maximum lengths shown for each independent fixture.
