Patented power line communication technology and innovative LED luminaire recognized by Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards for product innovation and market leadership
Montreal, QC and Vancouver, BC
Lumenpulse (TSX: LMP), a leading pure-play specification-grade LED lighting solutions provider, is proud to announce that its Lumentalk technology and the View luminaire from Fluxwerx have won Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards. Lumentalk, a patented power line communication technology, took home the top prize in the “Project Applications - Most Innovative” category; while the View, a suspended linear LED luminaire that creates the impression of floating fenestration, was recognized in the Interior lighting segment.
“We are very proud to have been recognized by the Product Innovation Awards,” says François-Xavier Souvay, President and CEO of Lumenpulse. “Our philosophy has always been to combine technological innovation with superior product design, and Lumentalk technology and the View luminaire from Fluxwerx are perfect examples of the impact this approach can have in the LED lighting market. They really open the door for creative lighting designs, and smarter, more efficient lighting applications.”
Lumentalk uses existing electrical infrastructure as a bi-directional carrier for lighting control data, allowing the creation of connected, networkable lighting systems, without additional wiring for data. The technology was recently named the “Controls Product of the Year” at the LuxLive Middle East Awards. It was also recognized for its part in the Lux Awards’ “Controls Project of the Year” at Next Rugby, which used Lumentalk to individually control over 500 Lumenpulse luminaires.
“By using existing power lines, Lumentalk can instantly transform heritage buildings, large-scale structures and retail environments, to name just a few,” says Greg Campbell, Senior Vice President Engineering and Chief Technology Officer at Lumenpulse. “Lumentalk delivers digital, bi-directional communication, which makes it easier to monitor the performance and health of your system, and allows luminaires to be dimmed and controlled individually – all without having to alter or damage architecture. The sky is the limit for Lumentalk, and this award is further proof of its immense potential.”
The View from Fluxwerx is a high-performance suspended linear LED for general lighting in a wide range of environments, including workplaces, schools and healthcare institutions. The innovative design delivers light vertically, and is transparent when on, creating the appearance of floating fenestration. The View uses anidolic extraction optics to provide precisely controlled optical distributions with no image of the LED point sources. This allows for low glare and wide row spacing (up to 18ft on center with ~ 50 fc at .56 W/ft2 or 40 fc at 0.47 W/ft2). Offering a choice of endcaps, mounting options and finishes, the luminaire features an invisible joiner, creating seamless continuous runs.
“We’re very proud to have won a Product Innovation Award for the View luminaire,” says Tim Berman, President of Fluxwerx. “At Fluxwerx, we’ve always believed in the notion that good design is obvious, but great design is transparent. The View luminaire really illustrates this design philosophy, offering the performance and sustainability of cutting-edge LED lighting technology, while still seamlessly blending into its environment. We couldn’t be more excited about the future.”
