Legrand, North & Central America and Lumileds announced a partnership agreement that the companies said will bring to market a simple to integrate and easy-to-install plug and play solution that delivers high quality tunable-white light.
Under this agreement, Lumileds will provide intelligent light sources from its Luxeon line and Matrix Platform that are programmed to work with Legrand’s Wattstopper Blanco line of tunable white logic modules within the Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM) lighting controls solution. Lumileds joins existing Legrand partnerships in tunable-white light engine as the exclusive LED array provider.
“The lighting industry is beginning the transition from providing only static white light to enabling dynamic end user selectable color temperature solutions as a subset of what is becoming possible with intelligent and human centric lighting fixtures and controls,” said Steve Barlow, SVP/general manager of Lumileds Illumination Business, in a release. “We are excited about the partnership with Legrand and their capability to advance the adoption of tunable lighting. Our joint commitment is to optimize the customer experience by offering perfect fixture-to-fixture color matching over a wide CCT range through simple, seamless integration of light sources into fixtures that interface with Wattstopper tunable white modules and their lighting controls.”
The partnership, combining expertise in LED light sources, drivers and controls with the Blanco intellectual property from Lumenetix Inc., ensures the development of market-ready solutions for a range of tunable white applications across the commercial, healthcare, hospitality and education market segments.
