Grid Lay-In Fixture Integrates Seemlessly with Adura Technologies
Wireless Control Platform

Redwood City, Calif. – Lunera® Lighting, Inc. a Silicon Valley company that designs, manufactures, and markets next-generation LED lighting, announced today the commercial availability of Lunera’s first Adura Technologies-enabled luminaire, the 2240 SERIES. Based on Lunera’s award winning two-foot by two-foot architectural grid lay-in and surface mountable 2200 SERIES fixture, the 2240 SERIES comes equipped with a factory-installed Adura LC-1RD wireless controller.

“Combining the energy savings and near daylight quality of Lunera’s LED lighting systems with Adura’s wireless management platform enables customers to realize of significant energy savings. Adura’s wireless system can be easily installed at a fraction of a conventional retrofit cost without disrupting business operations,” said Philip Lavee, VP of Sales, Business Development, and Marketing at Adura Technologies.

The low profile 2240 SERIES can be installed and instantly ready to connect to a wireless Adura network, enabling an end-to-end wireless light control system. The luminaire also offers a choice of three popular color temperatures of 3500K, 4000K and 5000K, to suit any mood or task required for the interior environment. When combined with the Adura controller and sensors, the lighting system will provide customers with occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, and smooth dimming capability. The 2240 SERIES luminaire is an elegant and sustainable choice for meeting rooms, boardrooms, open office spaces, and hallways.

“We are pleased to work with Adura to provide wireless lighting controls for LED lighting systems that can save users an additional 40 to 70 percent in energy costs. By factory-installing the Adura wireless controller into the 2240 SERIES, Lunera delivers significant installation cost reduction, and simplifies installation for electrical contractors,” commented Rich Warmke, Lunera Director of Strategic Marketing.

By encouraging the use of advanced controls and voluminous near-daylight LED lighting, the 2240 SERIES contributes to energy-efficient buildings and LEED certification. In addition to lifetime energy savings, Lunera’s 2240 SERIES is manufactured in the USA to further reduce its carbon footprint. Supported by a 5-year warranty, the fully recyclable fixtures contain no harmful chemicals and generate less heat than comparable incumbent lighting technologies.
