White Plains Sta­tion is a com­muter rail stop on the Metro-North Railroad’s Harlem Line, located in White Plains, New York. It is the third largest in the Metro- North Rail­road system, with more than 87 mil­lion pas­sen­gers riding annu­ally. A recent state-of-the-art $95 mil­lion upgrade was com­pleted which included new ameni­ties such as Wi-Fi and cel­lu­lar con­nec­tiv­ity and USB charg­ers on benches. Metro-North’s Sta­tion began the three-year long ren­o­va­tion in 2018, as a way to bring a more cus­tomer friendly atmos­phere for com­muters. The project refur­bished the station’s main entrance at the sta­tion plaza, the Main Street entrance, the Hamil­ton Avenue entrance, and the Mott Street tunnel. The sta­tion was remod­eled with a modern aes­thetic, includ­ing updated sig­nage, a widened main lobby, new ele­va­tor, and new and improved light­ing. Upgrad­ing our trans­porta­tion hubs to meet the demands of the 21st cen­tury is fuel­ing the eco­nomic come­back that we need today and will help keep New York’s econ­omy com­pet­i­tive in the future,” said Kathy Hochul, Gov­er­nor of New York.

Selux light­ing was used through­out this project. M125 LED linear light­ing was used on the inte­rior and exte­rior through­out White Plains Sta­tion. It was the per­fect choice because M125 LED offers safe, effi­cient light­ing with its high-impact and access pro­tec­tion to IP65 and IK10 stan­dards. M125 LED is made for the harsh envi­ron­ments and was designed with vandal, tamper, and impact resis­tance in mind. Selux Arca was used on the exte­rior, on and around the train plat­form. This sleek and min­i­mal­is­tic path­way area lumi­naire is equipped with the pro­pri­etary Gen5 optics, giving the sta­tion path a com­fort­able appear­ance and opti­mal spread­ing of light.

  • **NEW Arca Pro** Arco Pro is a sleek architectural post top luminaire, perfect for demanding lighting applications. The combination of aesthetic appeal and technical performance defines Arca Pro. Configure multiple heads for pedestrian pathways, campuses, parking lots, side streets, or plazas. **Arca** Arca's design language is purist at all times. While it is timeless, a reserved design enables the Arca to blend harmoniously into all public spaces. The proprietary Gen5 light engine gives you an expansive selection of technical light distributions to choose from. Arca also allows different mounting configurations for a unique look and function. IP65 rated light engine has toolless access via a cast aluminum latch, and the complete assembly has an impact resistance of IK08.
