Product News at light+building 2016
LUMITECH, as innovation leader in Human Centric Lighting, was presenting innovative advancements of its cutting-edge PI-LED technology. Thanks to consistent and systematic further development based in particular on practical experience gained by luminaire manufacturers and users, PI-LED now presents itself as a comprehensive system covering almost all design types and control options.
New products at light + building – in detail
NEOLINK WHEEL CONTROL – “WALLY”
The innovative “WALLY” can be used to operate all options of a PI-LED luminaire via wireless remote control (ZibBee standard) using a normal rotary pushbutton switch. “WALLY” is perfect for retrofitting Human Centric Lighting since it requires no complex reconstruction work. WALLY is installed by simply connecting it to the power supply and fitting it into a flush-mounting unit box: it’s as simple as that! The selected PI-LED luminaires are then registered in the network by simply pressing the button. It is just as easy to connect small rooms with a single light as to integrate complex spatial structures with several luminaires. One WALLY can be used to control up to 200 luminaires. The preset automated daylight sequence can be modified manually: By pressing the rotary switch knob once or several times, brightness, colour and colour temperature ranging 2500 K to 7000 K can be continuously regulated. The procedures for saving settings are easy and user-friendly.
PI-LED MINI SPOT SMD
The tiny “PI-LED MINI SPOT SMD” provides new options for luminaire manufacturers, allowing integration of tunable white and RGB colours into spotlights and downlights. When these are linked to DALI DT8 or NeoLink systems, colour temperatures between 2500 K and 7000 K can be set manually along the Planckian locus and automated daylight sequences can be programmed. The footprint is designed to match the ZHAGA standard, providing maximum all-around flexibility. Despite its extremely small size, the PI-LED MINI SPOT SMD has an excellent efficiency performance of 90 lm/W, as well as a superb colour rendering index of CRI>90. Safety is ensured by an integrated overheating protection system.
PI-LED LINEAR SYSTEM M – ZHAGA
With the new “PI-LED LINEAR SYSTEM M – ZHAGA”, Human Centric Lighting can be brought “in line”. Between three and eight PI-LED modules can be connected in series to cover 90 cm – 240 cm without impairment of light quality. Quite the contrary, this arrangement achieves an efficiency of 110 lm/W and at CRI>90, its colour rendering is excellent. It has a very low colour temperature tolerance of MacAdam 3. Like all other PI-LED systems, the LINEAR SYSTEM M – ZHAGA can be operated by NeoLink wireless controls or DALI DT8 cable controls: all colour temperatures between 2500 K and 7000 K can be set precisely to any value on the Planckian locus. FRGB colours and brightness can also be controlled.
AREA SYSTEM PRO – ALL IN ONE 9x9
This square PI-LED planar light source module is based on technology used by the smaller ALL IN ONE 6x6, but is extended by 3 units along each side. With an edge length of 450 mm, the 9x9 module fulfils the requirement that recessed ceiling luminaires have to fit standard ceiling grid dimensions. In the ALL IN ONE module, the integrated LMU eliminates the need for additional wiring when installed into a luminaire housing. Its high efficiency of 100 lm/W, excellent colour rendering of CRI>90 and very low colour temperature tolerance of MacAdam 3 ensure extremely good light quality, even though this is a planar system. The PI-LED area modules can be controlled using DALI DT8 or NeoLink to set colour temperatures between 2500 K and 7000 K accurately to any value on the Planckian locus and to control RGB colours and brightness.
