At LIGHTFAIR International (LFI 2016), LED Engin, Inc. will demonstrate its LuxiTune linear dynamic light engine – the world’s first Bluetooth low energy (BLE) mesh-controlled tuneable 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 tuneable lighting schemes seamlessly.

Installed in a 4 x 4 x 48 inch fixture such as a slot or pendant, the linear light engine delivers 650lm/ft out of the diffuser. At full intensity, CRI is over 90 at 3000K and colour uniformity is three MacAdams or better over the module length. Dimming is smooth, flicker free and goes down to 3 per cent. 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 tuneable LED modules for directional lighting may have addressed the challenges of making tuneable light appear more natural, uniform and vibrant, linear light fixtures still face hurdles in achieving an enhanced tuneable solution. LuxiTune’s linear dynamic light engine delivers precise colour 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 tuneable white fixture may be converted to an accent lighting fixture by simply using the LZP RGBW board.

LED Engin products are sold directly through LED Engin sales channels and its distributors. They are available for immediate sampling. For additional information, or to find a sales representative, please visit: www.LEDEngin.com

LIGHTFAIR International (LFI 2016), one of the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade events, is held between April 26 - 28 at San Diego Convention Center.  For more information, visit www.lightfair.com.
