The combination of Wattstopper lighting controls and sophisticated tuneable light LED driver technology from Lumenetix delivers advanced lighting systems that are easy to design, install, and control. With new Blanco and Lumenetix araya5 logic modules, Legrand offers fixture manufacturers and lighting professionals utmost flexibility with a range of light engine choices and multiple control options including 0-10V, DMX, and Digital Lighting Management (DLM) in either zone- or fixture-based configurations.

Logic modules include: Blanco 2, a two-channel tuneable white solution that combines precision dimming with tuneable white and is ideal for classrooms and general lighting applications (tuneable range of 3000-5000K); Blanco 3, the wider range three-channel solution adjusts corrected colour temperature (CCT) along the blackbody curve across a wide range of colour temperatures to precisely replicate natural daylight. This makes it suitable for lighting designers seeking to personalize spaces with customizable white light, such as in healthcare and office applications (tuneable range of 2700K – 6500K) and araya5 which mixes five colours for advanced tuneable colour for restaurant, retail, and hospitality applications (1650K-8000K).

Each logic module allows intensity control from 100% lumen output down to 0.1%, as well as lumen and colour maintenance ensuring consistent light output throughout the life of the fixture.

The company is also launching several DLM HCL Lighting Management Switches and interfaces that provide sleek, easy, and intuitive CCT control of fixtures enabled with Blanco and araya5. These switches can be used separately or together for full customization of colour temperature.

The Wattstopper DLM Color Control Preset Switch (LMSW-105-CCT) allows full customization of colour temperature.  With four preset buttons, users can set and recall preset lighting colour temperature scenes. It also includes a rocker button to raise and lower CCT levels.  The Wattstopper DLM Color Control Schedule Switch (LMTS-101-CCT) allows users to enjoy the benefits of HCL by automatically adjusting CCT levels throughout the day either on a default schedule or according to user preferences on a custom schedule. The Color Control Schedule Switch enables automatic daylight cycling, which replicates the natural sunrise and sunset cycle based on the building’s geographic location, making seasonal adjustments via an astronomical clock.

Wattstopper DLM Network Segment Manager (LMSM and Segment Manager) provides control, monitoring, adjustment, and scheduling of HCL inside of full DLM networks. The colour temperature scheduling, together with standard load scheduling, enables automatic on/off as well as daylight cycling, replicating sunrise and sunset for entire buildings and campuses.  

Blanco and araya5 logic modules can also be controlled by a variety of Equinox touchscreens and a mobile device app from the Wattstopper architectural dimming platform. Control options for this platform include 0-10V or DMX.
