SYRACUSE, NY — Power management company Eaton announced that the Texas Rangers have installed its advanced light-emitting diode (LED) system at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The system features industry-leading control functions that will enhance the viewing experience for spectators while reducing energy use by as much as 60 percent. The Rangers played their first regular season game under the new Ephesus LED Lighting and Controls system on April 5 against the Seattle Mariners.
“The Rangers are excited to collaborate with Eaton to bring this state-of-the-art technology to Globe Life Park,” said Rob Matwick, executive vice president, Business Operations for the Texas Rangers. “Reducing the fixture count 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. The Rangers are thrilled to be among the early adopters of this new LED technology.”
“Since we installed the first solid-state lighting system in a North American sports arena, facility operators have come to understand that our digital lighting solutions create an enhanced stage for fans and performers,” said Mike Lorenz, president, Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business. “We know that the Rangers fans, players, broadcasters and even their opponents will see the game better with our industry-leading digital lighting and control system.”
Eaton, the Texas Rangers and their broadcast partner Fox Sports Southwest conducted a test of the lighting at Globe Life Park following the installation. Click here to see highlights of this project.
