While we regularly cover white-point-tunable indoor lighting based on LED sources, tunable systems outdoors have largely been limited to façade lighting of architectural structures and most often has been dynamic colored lighting. Now, however, Echelon has announced an outdoor solid-state lighting (SSL) project in White Bear Lake, MN near St. Paul in which post-top luminaires can be tuned over the range of 2700K to 5500K in CCT. The lights are installed at the municipality’s Railroad Park that measures about a typical city block and Echelon has supplied the tunable sources to retrofit the post tops along with the Lumewave adaptive control system. White Bear Lake will get the best of both worlds in its downtown park. The city managers believe that during times of high activity, 4500K provides better visibility for a safer environment. Later at night as activity levels drop, the municipality will warm the lights to 2700K, a CCT generally preferred by many people. “There has been a lot of controversy in the industry regarding the color of light generated by outdoor lighting and the possible harmful effects it may cause to humans and the surrounding ecosystems,” said Ken Taillon, manager of municipal lighting services at Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc, who led the project engineering. “This issue forces agencies to select the preferred color temperature before installation of a lighting system. With Echelon’s innovative technology, agencies no longer have to choose the color temperature during the design process. Tuning the color of white light in conjunction with adjusting the brightness level provides opportunities we’ve never had before. Lighting systems can now respond to the dynamic needs associated with providing necessary public safety while rendering colors and light levels that are more appropriate for lighting the after-hour nighttime environment.” The tunable system also offers capabilities that can be used during special events or emergencies. “Municipalities now have the power to create the perfect environment at any given time,” said Ron Sege, chairman and CEO of Echelon. “Imagine the improved public safety if all of the streetlights in an area were immediately whiter and brighter when a 911 call was responded to, but otherwise dimmer and more yellow at night for restful sleep. Cities need not compromise safety for comfort or vice versa. Our technology is paving the way for smart cities to improve quality of life, while still achieving energy efficiency and sustainability goals.” Echelon supplied a powerline communication scheme to network the street and park lights. Lumewave is the company’s brand for a robust suite of SSL networking and control technologies including wired and wireless networking, lighting controllers, gateways, and a central management system. Echelon has not to date been a supplier of lighting products, but instead has partnered with luminaire makers. The company has not revealed whether it worked with a partner to develop the tunable retrofit source or if it was developed internally. The company did say it plans to make the tunable technology more broadly available this year. Meanwhile, White Bear Lake will work on pioneering the technology usage. “Being the first to try this new technology and see it in action was very rewarding,” said Mark Burch, public works director and city engineer for White Bear Lake. “We could raise the brightness and select a more vivid hue during an evening event. With a scheduled scenario, we could shift the lights in that same area to a warmer hue at 2:00am when there are rarely park visitors, other than our nocturnal wildlife. We could also program sensors along with the lights to automatically respond to higher foot traffic or certain weather conditions for optimal visibility. The new technology could give us the power to elevate the level of public safety and quality of life across our entire community.” Of course, a tunable system will add cost over and above the cost of networking street lights. Municipalities are hoping to justify the expenses of networks through emerging applications that increase safety and convenience for citizens as we have chronicled previously. A tunable luminaire will require at least two LED channels with separate drivers for each. Moreover, LED utilization is not maximized when operating the channels at less than 100% to achieved the desired CCT, meaning you need more LEDs than in a non-tunable design.
Elation Professional has launched two new LED Par lights — the six-color SixPar Z19 IP and the variable white DW Par Z19 IP — both IP-rated and with motorized zoom. Elation said the lights are useful as a wash light, uplight, wall wash or truss warmer and may be used indoors or outdoors. The lights harness the power from 19 individual 15W LEDs. The coverage area comes from a wide 5 to 45 degree zoom. The SixPar Z19 IP is a bright and versatile full-color Par luminaire with nineteen 15W 6-in-1 RGBAW+UV LEDs. The six-color LED multi-chip provides an expanded palette of colors, including ambers, true whites and ultraviolet (UV LED wavelength of 395nm). Electronic strobe and variable dimming curve effects are included and a variety of color and chase macros make for greater programming. The SixPar Z19 IP is bright, projecting up to 13,240 LUX @ 9.8 feet (five degrees full on). The fixture is controllable via four DMX channel modes (14 total channels) and is capable of Remote Device Management protocol. Built with rugged die-cast aluminum exteriors and IP65 protected, both the SixPar Z19 IP and DW Par Z19 can be used during all types of weather. The DW Par Z19 IP is a bright and versatile white-light Par luminaire with nineteen 15W 2-in-1 cool white/warm white LEDs for variable shade projections of white light. It features dynamic white color temperature range control from 2,700K white tungsten to 6,000K cool white They come with a 180-degree reversible LCD menu display and a four-button touch control panel makes for simple navigation through DMX and manual settings. Multiple unit power linking means that customizable setups are quick and both fixtures come with an adjustable floor stand for flexible positioning.
Fullscreen, a company supporting hundreds of content creators, influencers and brands, had to support a variety of video sets in a single warehouse location. The range of sets included a Kingdom Geeks pop-culture talk show with action figures, a dreamy slumber party set and even a podcast stage. A 14,000 square foot warehouse in Playa Vista was completely transformed into a fully supported 4K production facility containing two studios, thirteen stages and working sets featuring original talk, weekly and daily content that is put up on Fullscreen.com platform. In designing the new facility, lighting became one of the most critical challenges. To handle all of warehouse limitations facing the lighting package, Fullscreen decided to install a full complement of Litepanels LED lighting, including a range of LED Fresnels and panels for the talent and LED color changing lights for the sets. “We had some very specific weight, power and heat restrictions to consider and Litepanels proved to be the best option due to their design, cost effectiveness and energy efficiency,” said Richard A. Pizante, Fullscreen’s excutive in charge of production. “For this studio, I had to come up with an inventory of stuff that would be really flexible,” said Dan Reed, the lighting designer. “Litepanels was the affordable one, the lightweight one and the one using the least amount of power. And what was really astounding was the Daylight Astra EP has an incredible output for the price point,” he further added.
Lumileds has announced the Luxeon MX packaged LED portfolio that targets high-output applications like street lights outdoors and certain high-bay applications indoors. The LEDs can deliver 150 lm/W efficacy at relatively high drive currents and the array products integrated in a discrete-like, 7×7-mm package have a typical output in the 1200-lm range enabling usage in the target applications. Lumileds described the new four-emitter products as "shattering efficiency records." That hyperbole may be a bit over the top, but the MX products are among the brightest and most efficient products in what's essentially the largest discrete LED package — approaching the size of smaller chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. Lumileds said luminaires using the product can achieve system-level efficacy of 120 lm/W and that system performance is what's most important to lighting designers/specifiers. Still, it's the LED technology enabling the performance. "This is double the flux of comparable emitters in 120-lm/W systems," said Seth Danielson, product manager for the Luxeon MX. "We’ve achieved this performance leap by optimizing the LED for improved efficiency at higher drive currents up to 1.5A with the 12V device." The 12V configuration would place the four emitters in series. Lumileds is also offering 3V and 6V configurations of the LEDs. The higher-voltage version, however, enables relatively lower drive currents to achieve the same power level for the array, and by decreasing the magnitude of the voltage drop from the line to the LED voltage, the configuration enables more efficient driver electronics. And driver efficiency figures significantly in system efficacy. Lumileds points out that the system performance enabled by the new LEDs will enable lighting manufacturers to more easily meet the stringent requirements of the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) qualified products list, especially the Premium level designation of that list. "By creating products eligible for the DLC Qualified Products List, cities and municipalities can receive rebates on their LED street lighting projects, while also realizing the fast return on investment from using the most efficient emitters," said Danielson. As for other packaged LEDs in the 7×7-mm format, Lumileds has previously offered the predecessor Luxeon M LED that was launched back in 2012. It appears that the MX offers on the order of a 20% improvement in lumen output and efficacy. The Lumileds MX would appear to trail the Cree Extreme High Power (XHP) packaged LEDs in terms of maximum output, although datasheets from different companies are almost possible to compare given to component characterization at different conditions. Cree announced the XHP70 LEDs back in January 2015 with lower efficacy than the new Lumileds LEDs, but with a greater ability to overdrive the LEDs for higher lumen output. The XHP70 LEDs were announced alongside the 5×5-mm XHP50 LEDs and recently Cree boosted the performance of the latter with the XHP50.2 product reaching 165 lm/W in efficacy. Lumileds is offering the Luxeon M family across a wide CCT range from 3000K to 6500K. The target application would not typically require warmer CCTs. The LEDs will be available at 70, 80, and 90 CRI. The range of target applications will extend to extreme application such as sports-venue lighting.
