Legrand And Lumileds Collaborate On Tunable White LED Lighting

News
Companies to bring to market plug and play solution based on Luxeon LEDs and Wattstopper Blanco logic modules

Legrand, North & Central America and Lumileds have announced a partnership agreement that will bring to market a simple to integrate and easy-to-install plug and play solution that delivers high quality tuneable-white light.

Under this agreement, Lumileds will provide intelligent light sources (Luxeon-based solutions) through its Matrix Platform that are characterised and programmed to work with Legrand's Wattstopper Blanco tuneable-white logic modules within the Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM) lighting controls solution. Lumileds joins existing Legrand partnerships in tuneable-white light engine as the exclusive LED array provider.

"The lighting industry is beginning the transition from providing only static white light to enabling dynamic end user selectable colour temperature solutions as a subset of what is becoming possible with intelligent and human centric lighting fixtures and controls," says Steve Barlow, SVP/GM of Lumileds Illumination Business. "We are very excited about the partnership with Legrand and their capability to advance the adoption of tuneable lighting. Our joint commitment is to optimise the customer experience by offering perfect fixture-to-fixture colour matching over a wide CCT range through simple, seamless integration of light sources into fixtures that interface with Wattstopper tuneable white modules and their lighting controls."

The partnership, combining expertise in LED light sources, drivers, and controls, along with the blanco intellectual property from Lumenetix, Inc. ensures the development of industry leading, market ready solutions for a range of tuneable white applications across commercial, healthcare, hospitality, and education market segments.

Legrand's Wattstopper Blanco 2 is a two-channel LED light engine providing high-quality light with a tuneable range of 3000K-5000K. With a tuneable range of 2700K-6500K, Blanco 3 is a three-channel LED light engine that adjusts correlated colour temperatures precisely along the blackbody locus to replicate natural daylight.

Blanco logic modules connect to dedicated LED arrays developed by Lumileds Luxeon LED-based Matrix Platform. The arrays are available in a wide range of Zhaga-compliant linear or custom form factors to meet the requirements of lighting fixture manufacturers. Both Blanco light engines provide white light with a colour rendering index (CRI) and TM-30 fidelity index of at least 90. Both solutions also provide flicker-free dimming from 100 percent to 0.1 percent.

Andrew Wale, VP product marketing at Legrand said: "As high-performance buildings" shift their focus towards a total building performance model, occupant comfort and productivity become paramount. Tuneable lighting, as part of this shift and a dynamic lighting control strategy, plays a key role. But its potential is only realised when quality of light can be delivered from an end-to-end solution that integrates lighting source, fixture, and controls with ease of system design, install, commissioning, and first use."



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
