Espen Technology has launched its versaDim RF color-tuning TLEDs, which are wirelessly controlled, linear LED lamps, using a simple handheld radio frequency remote control. It is as simple to use as a ceiling fan handheld remote, which can be used to dim the lights, change CCT, or turn the lights on and off. Espen’s first stock is 4-foot, 12W, Type B, double-ended input, LED tubes.
If a user holds the color-changing button down on the remote, the color temperature of the lamp changes gradually and continuously between 2700K and 5000K CCT. If the user does quick clicks on the color changing button, the color temperature jumps between 5-step changes: 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, and 5000K CCTs.
The simplicity of the versaDim RF lamps and remote results in many benefits:
- simple, push-button pairing of the remote to the lamp
- avoids the costly commissioning of most wireless systems
- no hassle dimming and color-tuning
- wall-mounted charger for the remote
- avoids downloading and learning mobile apps.
A new Gen 2 signal repeating function dramatically extends the range of the remote control, previously limited to 30-50 feet in the original products (depending on room configuration). Now, the first lamp to receive the remote signal repeats the signal to lamps farther away, in a manner that can extend the control range indefinitely in theory, however, very long distances would reveal some latency, the delay between the first and last lamp signaled. The new Gen 2 signal repeating feature is ideal for remote control of large rooms and hallways.
