LED Engin to demonstrate Bluetooth mesh-controlled LED light engine for tunable-white linear luminaires at LFI

April 26, 2016
San Jose, CA, USA: At LIGHTFAIR International (LFI 2016), LED Engin, Inc. will demonstrate its LuxiTune™ linear dynamic LED light engine – the world’s first Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) mesh-controlled tunable white solution for linear luminaires. Adding a comprehensive BLE interface enables end users to wirelessly configure, control and manage linear luminaires to produce dynamic, coherent and fully tunable lighting schemes seamlessly.

Installed in a 4 x 4 x 48 inch fixture such as a slot or pendant, the linear LED light engine delivers 650lm/ft out of the diffuser. At full intensity, CRI is over 90 at 3000K and uniformity is three MacAdams or better over the module length. Dimming is smooth, flicker free and goes down to 3%. As well as enabling control via a BLE mesh network, the LuxiTune™ linear light engine also interfaces seamlessly with third party 0-10V, Dali, DMX and Zigbee controllers.

By employing the latest BLE mesh protocol, the module ensures the security that large commercial applications demand if they are to be controlled from smart devices. BLE provides multi-level secure access to both the control system and mesh network.

President and CEO of LED Engin, David Tahmassebi, comments: “While tunable LED modules for directional lighting may have addressed the challenges of making tunable light appear more natural, uniform and vibrant, linear light fixtures still face hurdles in achieving an enhanced tunable solution. LuxiTune’s linear dynamic light engine delivers precise control and unrivalled uniformity across the module length.”

Also on show on booth 1361, LED Engin’s will demonstrate its LZP RGBW and LZ7 emitters, which are particularly suited to architectural lighting, accent lighting and effect lighting. Its LZP RGBW MCPCB with connector has the exact same form factor as LZP LuxiTune™ MCPCB and therefore a tunable white fixture may be converted to an accent lighting fixture by simply using the LZP RGBW board.

About LED Engin, Inc.
LED Engin, based in California’s Silicon Valley, specializes in ultra-bright, ultra-compact solid state lighting solutions that allow designers and engineers the freedom to create uncompromised yet energy efficient lighting experiences. The company’s LuxiGen™ Platform - an emitter and lens combination or integrated module, delivers superior flexibility in light output, ranging from 3W to 90W, a wide spectrum of available colors, including whites, multi-color and UV, and the ability to deliver upwards of 5,000 high quality lumens to a target. The small size combined with powerful output allows for a previously unobtainable freedom of design wherever high flux density, directional light is required. LED Engin products are sold directly through LED Engin sales channels and its distributors. They are available for immediate sampling.
