LEDs Magazine today announced the LumaStream Trinity DMX power supply as a finalist in the first annual Sapphire Awards, selecting it in the LED driver category. The inaugural awards gala - covering the greatest achievements in solid-state lighting - is the first in the lighting industry to focus on the LED-based market from an enabling-technology and elegance-of-design perspective.
"What's unique about the Trinity remote LED driver is its tremendous value proposition," says Pedro Meirelles, Sr. Director of OEM Sales at LumaStream. "No other LED driver offers the performance and flexibility of the Trinity."
A single LumaStream Trinity DMX unit can deliver power and control to up to 36 LED fixtures, with 12 independent channels, and the ability to send low-voltage power using 18/2 speaker wire from driver to fixture without voltage drop over best-in-class distances. With 12 controllable channels managed in a single box, the Trinity DMX opens the door to more creative, controllable lighting scenes in restaurant, retail, health care, and other applications by maximizing light for positive human response. The Trinity DMX power supply creates a hyper-efficient ecosystem that significantly improves the reliability and performance of LEDs. The Trinity also offers a unique, 3-in-1 approach, transforming power, delivering constant current, and controlling smooth, flicker-free dimming to near 0%.
LumaStream's low-voltage DC distribution also reduces multiple points of inefficiency that exist in other LED systems, carrying a best in class 87% efficiency over wide power load. With 226W and 12 output channels, Trinity can significantly reduce the electrical infrastructure needed to power LEDs in a commercial space, providing a greener, lower cost LED lighting solution.
"We're extremely proud of this recognition," said LumaStream CEO, Eric Higgs. "We believe the Trinity DMX is a game changer in the LED lighting industry, and this nomination is further evidence of its potential to do that." Meirelles adds, "Because the Trinity DMX is compatible with most major control systems on the market, it lends itself well to our OEM partner applications. We're seeing new, inventive uses of Trinity all the time."
"The true technology stars often go unrecognized in our society," said LEDs Magazine editor Maury Wright. "We strive to identify the true innovations and innovators that are driving the LED industry forward on an annual basis."
"We take great responsibility in helping the LED industry to move forward and in particularly the LED-based general lighting market to grow, and the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards will provide the LED technology sector with a highly-visible stage for our stars," said Christine Shaw, publisher of LEDs Magazine and senior vice president/group publisher at PennWell.
The nominees and winners will be celebrated at the Sapphire Awards Gala Dinner on February 25, 2015 from 7:30pm - 11:00pm at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas during Strategies in Light and The LED Show.
