LED Engin – Colour-tunable LED now with ZigBee for smart lighting needs May 7 2015 Connectors, Switches & EMECH Print Article May 7 2015 Connectors, Switches & EMECH LED Engin has expanded its LuxiTune LED product family by integrating ZigBee connectivity. The LZ9 LuxiTune is the first CCT tunable and warm dimmable source enabling independent colour and brightness control offered for applications such as compact track light heads. Delivering 700lm output and a high CRI of 90, LZ9 LuxiTune with ZigBee control is a high-quality tunable light source with 2 SDCM colour consistency at 3000K. Featuring active thermal compensation, the emitter’s closed loop thermal feedback ‘guarantees’ stable flux and CCT over the entire temperature range and provides thermal protection. The LZ9 2-inch diameter board and 37mm diameter lens options make it ideal for compact track and accent lighting. LuxiTune is also available at 2200lm, 1100lm and 800lm outputs with 0-10V, DMX and DALI control interfaces. With two modes of operation – Warm Dimming (3000K-1600K) and CCT Tuning (2100K – 4300K) – it offers flicker-free dimming down to 0.5% that closely follows the black body locus, says the company.
