Lutron’s Award-Winning EcoSystem Technology to be Embedded into Lumenpulse’s Complete Line of LED Luminaires
Lumenpulse Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of high performance, architectural LED-based lighting solutions for commercial, institutional, and urban environments, recently announced an agreement with Lutron Electronics, an industry leader in the lighting controls and energy management market,which will bring the brand’s award-winning EcoSystem technology to the Lumenpulse LED product line.
Lutron’s EcoSystem is a commercial lighting control system that is comprised of digitally addressable dimming ballasts and LED drivers, controls, and environmental sensors. These components provide businesses with energy savings from 40 to 70%, while increasing space flexibility, improving occupant comfort and productivity, and reducing maintenance costs.
Under the agreement’s Phase I, Lumenpulse will enable the major part of its award-winning portfolio – including Lumenline, Lumenfacade and Lumenbeam – to be EcoSystem-ready by March 2013. Until this agreement, EcoSystem has been principally available for interior fluorescent lighting; with the two companies working together, the EcoSystem solution can – for the first time — be applied to both outdoor and indoor lighting.
“Lumenpulse has been highly successful in developing a portfolio of LED products for both indoor and outdoor high performance lighting,” said Ed Blair, Vice President and General Manager of Lutron.“This agreement allows our EcoSystem technology to control exterior as well as interior lighting – helping our joint customers save energy and reduce maintenance costs on building infrastructure,” said Blair.
“Combining the technological strengths of Lumenpulse and Lutron through this agreement provides our customers with great design combined with significant energy and cost savings,” said François-Xavier Souvay, Lumenpulse Founder, President and CEO. “By working with Lutron, we can give building specifiers confidence that all of our LED luminaires meet their design needs and can also integrate with the EcoSystem building management environment to maximize energy saving potential. Backed by Lutron global service teams, this combination gives specifiers a solution they can trust.”
Phase II of the agreement will expand the relationship by making EcoSystem compatible with the remaining part of Lumenpulse’s portfolio, while providing EcoSystem-ready options across all Lumenpulse product families to enable smart energy savings and continuing to accelerate the adoption of controllable LED lighting systems.
Together the two brands are collaborating to bring customers the best of both worlds – great design combined with significant energy and cost savings.
