“Our LIGHTFAIR introductions demonstrate our mission to create products with a perfect balance of performance and design—which we’ve proven are not mutually exclusive," said Tech Lighting president Josh Weiss.
Chicago, Ill (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Tech Lighting will debut a wide variety of new, high technology products and product extensions from two of its award winning architectural lighting lines—its Unilume LED Lighting Systems platform and its ELEMENT specification-grade, recessed lighting brand—at this month’s LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) in Philadelphia, April 23 through 25 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Booth #2535.
According to Tech Lighting president Josh Weiss, “Our LIGHTFAIR introductions demonstrate our mission to create products with a perfect balance of performance and design—which we’ve proven are not mutually exclusive—through our brand mandate of innovative thoughtful design, a deep appreciation for light performance, uncompromising quality, plus a robust passion for detail.”
New Unilume LED Products
Tech Lighting's Unilume LED Lighting Systems are designed specifically to address the shortcomings of many LED undercabinet, cove and other task and accent lighting products. By utilizing tightly clustered blue LEDs, optimized mixing chambers and remote phosphor lenses, the result is incredibly consistent illumination and high efficacy within the smallest profiles possible.
“After the amazingly positive response we received from last year’s Unilume LED Undercabinet introduction, we’re excited to expand the family which will help empower lighting designers and home owners alike to place high quality light exactly where they need it,” said Weiss. “Unilume LED Lighting Systems are designed to melt into architecture, leaving only consistent, beautiful white light behind. They can provide solutions for countless applications from residential and retail to hospitality, health care, education and more.”
Tech Lighting will add three new products to its award-winning Unilume LED platform with the Unilume LED Micro Channel (24V), Unilume LED Light Bar (24V) and Unilume LED Direct Wire (120V).
Unilume LED Micro Channel
With a width of only 1.0”, depth of only 0.80” and offered in 12”, 24” and 48” lengths, the Unilume LED Micro Channel is engineered for applications where custom length, end-to-end illumination is crucial. It has ultra-slim housing with tightly clustered blue LEDs in a dome-shaped co-extruded remote phosphor channel, creating an uninterrupted source of beautiful, consistent white light which Weiss says “will revolutionize existing task and application lighting.” The Unilume Micro Channel is field-cuttable every 3” at the end of a run and remains white in the off-state.
The 300 lumens per foot option is perfect for cove accent, display or close-up task light, and the 600 lumens per foot option is for more powerful task light, wall grazing and more. The easy-to-install Unilume LED Micro Channel has an estimated system efficacy of 100 lumens per watt; a color rendering index of 80+; and all lengths are offered in 2400k, 3000k, 3500k and 4000k. A myriad of mounting options make the Micro Channel extremely adaptable to almost any application.
Unilume LED Light Bar
For undercabinet, task and cove applications where space is limited but performance is crucial, the Unilume LED Light Bar utilizes a remote driver setup to allow for an ultra slim housing design just 0.68” deep and 1.13” wide. Its unique end-to-end connectors allow for 40 feet of uninterrupted, uniform light without the use of jumper wires. With efficacy of 65 lumens per watt; three convenient lengths (7”, 13” and 19”); two available color temperatures for each length (2700k, 3000k); and two CRI choices (80+, 90+), the Unilume LED Light Bar offers a variety of lighting solutions for one-of-a-kind applications.
Unilume LED Direct Wire
For undercabinet and a wide range of task applications where direct wiring is preferred, the Unilume LED Direct Wire provides a commercial grade combination of performance and versatility. With four lengths—7”, 13”, 19” and 30”—it has the ability to power up to 70 linked units from one power connection. With a system efficacy of 51 to 61 lumens per watt (depending on which length chosen), it also has an optional occupancy sensor and is available in 2700k and 3000k as well as 80+ or 90+ CRI.
Unilume Line Extensions
In addition, Tech Lighting is adding new 7” and 30” options to its original 13” and 19” Unilume LED Slimline versions. With 30 blue LEDs per foot, a 98 percent mixing chamber and a remote phosphor lens, the renamed Unilume LED Slimline products (previously called the Unilume LED Undercabinet System) achieve high color consistency and incredibly even illumination in a housing less than .75” deep. Perfect for a wide range of applications requiring energy-efficiency, superior quality of light and sleek design, Unilume’s jumper connectors make it easy to link units. The product is available in 2700K or 3000K and 80+ or 90+ CRI—and it has a system efficacy of 54 to 61 lumens per watt, depending on the length chosen.
New ELEMENT Modules to Debut At LIGHTFAIR
Tech Lighting will also feature its expanding ELEMENT specification-grade lighting brand by adding five new LED modules (in addition to the original Citizen Hi-Output module introduced last year) to its 4” Adjustable Downlights. “The innovative designs of the platform and heat sink can continually be adapted to new LED technologies as they’re developed, maintaining an LED agnostic platform. This empowers the design community to select LED solutions that best fit their design criteria and performance preferences,” said Weiss. The 4” Adjustable Downlight’s patent-pending, high-low lamp positioning allows the LED to be positioned closer to the aperture for maximum light output and efficiency or higher to minimize glare and flash on the trim. Additional adjustability enables tool-free hot aiming, including 0°-40° tilt and 361° rotation for no dead spots. All aiming functions are lockable.
New ELEMENT 3” Halogen Low Profile Adjustable Downlight
The new ELEMENT 3” Low Profile Adjustable Downlight was specifically engineered to meet customer demands for a product to uniquely address shallow ceiling plenum applications where light aiming is crucial. Adjustability allows for lockable hot aiming, including 0°-35° tilt and 361° rotation, which eliminates deadspots. Designed with a shallow 4” housing while utilizing the same trims as the rest of the ELEMENT 3” series, the presence of the Low Profile version is completely undetectable from below the ceiling—even if alongside other full-depth ELEMENT 3” downlights.
All of Tech Lighting’s LED products carry a five-year warranty.
