ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LumaStream, the leader in low-voltage, intelligent, LED lighting systems, announced today that it has expanded its Trinity line of remote power drivers for LED lighting, adding an analog model with as many control zones as power channels to give lighting designers and system integrators ultimate design flexibility. Lighting applications where 0-10V controls are most common, but where only small numbers of LED fixtures are grouped together on one switch, can now have the same variety of lighting configurations as a digital, low-voltage system at the lower analog system price point.
LED is the fastest growing technology for general lighting in commercial buildings. LumaStream is the only company to offer a holistic approach to low-voltage power distribution for LED lighting. The Trinity 3-in-1 platform combines digital power conversion, constant current drivers, and superior dimming control into one cohesive, intelligent LED power supply. Trinity remote drivers can power and control up to 24 LED luminaires up to 200 ft. away using only thin-gauge speaker wire.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, onboard drivers are the number one source of failure in LED fixtures. LumaStream eliminates that failure point, combines power and control onto one wire, and provides both analog and digital control protocols.
The new Trinity Analog model is ideally suited for hospitality and medical office applications where standard analog control switches and dimmers are used and where individual rooms or spaces may have only one or two LED fixtures that need to be powered or dimmed at once. Both markets, hospitality and healthcare, are experiencing growth in 2014, leading in new construction numbers.
"With the launch of the new Trinity Analog, LumaStream brings to market a powerful remote LED driver that provides all the design flexibility of our digital control, DMX, platform at the lower price point of a simplified analog solution," said Eric Higgs, LumaStream CEO.
A first project to benefit from the new Trinity Analog power supply is the St. Petersburg College midtown campus. Opening later this year, the new facility will incorporate LumaStream low-voltage power distribution and LED fixtures. Each administrative office will have the familiar toggle switches and slide dimmers for light control, but groups of several offices will be able to be powered from a single Trinity remote power supply. The energy efficiency and infrastructure savings are significant, while the system is easy to install, configure, and commission. This saves the college upfront investment and shrinks the ongoing operating expense.
LED is the future of lighting, forecasted to surpass all other lighting technologies by 2016. Low-voltage power distribution is the future of LED lighting. With this product line expansion, LumaStream continues to lead the industry in the move toward driver-less LED fixtures and low-voltage power distribution systems.
