The Araya® CTM1C-E ‘Entertainment’ provides exemplary performance for applications requiring high-quality tunable color.


LOS ANGELES – June 21, 2022 – ERP Power LLC (“ERP”), is launching 3 new Araya®  CTM1C-E tunable color light engines at LightFair 2022.

In addition to incorporating legacy Araya® 4CH (HSIK) color tuning control, CTM1C-E modules offer the user the choice of numerous types of RGBx control, selectable via DMX-RDM. CTM1C-E modules incorporate narrow band Green LEDs to provide an expanded color gamut that delivers an intense saturated green and yellow color.

The CTM1C-E features on-board DMX512-A-RDM and can be set to operate in any one of sixteen preloaded personalities, including the original Araya Color Tuning (HSIK), Warm/Dynamic Dimming, RGBW or RGBK. In RGBW mode, there are 5 preloaded CCT points to choose from: 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4300K and 6500K.  In RGBK mode, the CCT point can be set anywhere from 1700K to 8000K. The CTM1C-E also includes the capability to upgrade FW over the wire via DMX-RDM.

Key Metrics

In-line spectral capture creates a unique color model for each light engine, resulting in 90+ CRI and CCT across the entire CCT range – tunable from 1700-8000K. The light engines integrate driver electronics for precise control of current and PWM inputs, as well as LED light output. On-board closed-loop thermal feedback compensates each color channel for thermally induced variations in optical output due to tuning, dimming or ambient temperatures. This boasts a color consistency of < 2 MacAdam ellipse over a 50,000-hour life and allows the engine to dim from 100–1% while maintaining constant CCT. With 90+ CRI, and an expanded color gamut and color consistency, the Araya® ‘Entertainment’ provides exemplary performance for applications requiring high quality in color.

Expanded Color Gamut

The Araya® CTM1C-E ‘Entertainment’ utilizes a six (6) color LED arrangement that includes a narrow-band green LED. This allows the user to experience a saturated green and yellow in their lighting installations.
