C3 Lighting Solutions, Inc. develops 'digital classroom' LED lighting and acoustic system

March 25, 2015
C3 Lighting Solutions, Inc. has developed the first Advanced Digital Classroom Lighting System that can address lighting and acoustics, both necessary for improved learning. “Imagine the impact on a child’s academic career if they attended a school where the classroom lighting reduced their test errors by 45% and increased their reading speed by 35%” said Rick Farrell, President of C3 Lighting Solutions.
The color temperature and illumination levels of C3’s Digital Classroom Lighting System can be adjusted by the teacher based on different classroom activities: “Standard” for lecture and learning sessions, “Concentrate” for testing and reading, “Energy” for quick-starting the day and after lunch, “Relax” for calming classroom hyperactivity and “AV” for audio visual presentations.
Studies in Europe have shown the following results with the application of innovative classroom lighting technology: Increased reading speed of almost 35%, testing errors reduced by nearly 45% and Classroom hyperactivity reduced by 76%.
The system features: Solid-state microprocessor control, Touch-pad selectable color temperature and level of illumination based on classroom activity, Touch-pad selectable light level, 24 VDC high efficiency LED fixtures, Remote Power Supply Technology and Remote Emergency Egress Lighting Battery Back-up, Daylight-harvesting sensor for energy savings, Energy usage sensor and “After-Hours” occupancy alarms are available, Fixtures operate at 7 degrees above ambient temperature for increased HVAC energy savings.

The system is the safest classroom lighting system ever developed. C3’s Remote Power Technology removes power supplies from the classroom and uses Class 2 DC power for illumination and control, this eliminates any possibility of the system causing electrocution or fire in the classroom.

Improved speech recognition is a major concern in the classroom and C3’s LED technology allows our acoustic luminaires to provide both light and sound amplification and work in combination with the RPG Diffusor Systems, Inc. “Sound Diffusion Acoustic System”. Greatly improved speech intelligibility is achieved when its signal to noise ratio is high. Increasing the signal is now possible by applying Luminis acoustic luminaires in a specific area of the ceiling, along with Harmonix™-K modules to provide early sound reflection, thereby increasing the level of speech. Luminaires are available in 1’ X 2’, 1’ X 4’, 2’ X 2’ and 2’ X 4’ sizes. All of C3’s products are manufactured in the U.S.A.
