Legrand, North & Central America, has announced that three of its Wattstopper products have been accepted into the 2017 IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) Progress report which seeks to highlight developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world.
Wattstopper products included in the report are the Blanco 3 Logic Module, DLM Color Control Schedule Switch, and Commercial Equinox User Interface (UI) that are a part of the Wattstopper Human Centric Lighting and Architectural Dimming solutions.
- The three-channel Blanco 3 Logic Module is the only tunable white driver available in the market that adjusts corrected color temperature (CCT) along the blackbody curve across a wide range of color temperatures to replicate natural daylight. This makes it ideal for lighting designers seeking to personalize spaces with tunable white light, in healthcare, education, and commercial office applications. It offers flexibility of system design and control through Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM) or via DMX in the Wattstopper Architectural Dimming platform.
- The DLM Color Control Schedule Switch allows users to enjoy the benefits of Human Centric Lighting (HCL) by adjusting CCT levels throughout the day either on a default schedule or according to customized schedule. The switch enables automatic daylight cycling, which replicates the natural sunrise and sunset cycle based on the building’s geographic location and seasonal adjustments via an astronomical clock. Exhibiting a high resolution display showing the current CCT levels and tuning schedule.
- The Commercial Equinox User Interface (UI) solution for the Wattstopper Architectural Dimming platform features intuitive navigation and a simple user experience that make it easy for users to control nearly any lighting type from on/off to complex scenes, dynamic white, and color control to divide and combine applications. Any brand of shading, including the Wattstopper Solarfective brand of shades, can be controlled along with lighting. The Equinox UI software comes installed on Equinox touchscreens or downloadable as an app on mobile devices (iOS and Android). Equinox is a solution that provides an interface and programming method for managing partitioned spaces out-of-the-box for both lighting and shades which eliminates custom programming and saves time.
Human Centric Lighting for Architectural Dimming
Integration of Wattstopper HCL solutions with the Architectural Dimming platform offers a digital lighting system. Using the Commercial Equinox User Interface on touchscreens and apps along with any DMX light sources makes it simple to control lighting, including dynamic white and color temperature applications using circadian schedules.
Human Centric Lighting for Digital Lighting Management
Wattstopper HCL Solutions integrate seamlessly with the best selling Digital Lighting Management platform ensuring intuitive control and code compliance. The combination of light engines with DLM controls and software bring a level of simplicity and speed to tunable lighting projects. DLM’s Plug n’ Go automatic configuration ensures DLM Lighting Management Switches control the CCT channel right out of the box, without any setup or commissioning.
