Dialight to unveil LED light engine, color mix system

March 22, 2007
Dialight will introduce an energy-saving HID replacement LED light engine and a power line communication-enabled LED control system for color mix applications at Lightfair 2007.

Dialight's LED light engine is designed to replace medium-wattage HID sources in commercial, industrial and hazardous-location applications.

Dialight vice-president of marketing Andrew Wale said, "We're committed to providing our OEM partners with LED light engines that enable a better quality of light, higher fixture efficacy and the ability to provide increased energy efficiency over traditional light source technology.

"Dialight’s long heritage in LED application has enabled it to translate recent LED performance gains into a product platform that will address 75–250 W HID applications."

Also on display at Lightfair, which takes place 8-10 May in New York, will be an enhanced version of Dialight's "Spectramix" LED control system for saturated and color mix lighting applications.

The system now supports DMX RDM and can communicate over power lines in addition to the standard DMX or Ethernet cabling. Spectramix allows finite color point calibration over multiple fixtures and compensates for the time and temperature effects on LEDs to maintain color settings.

Two-way communication within the distributed control architecture of Spectramix means users can more effectively install, commission and monitor complex lighting schemes. The ability to utilize existing power lines will enable many retrofits to the more dynamic lighting capabilities provided by LEDs without the cost of running additional control wiring.
