LEDs Magazine Names ERP Winner in Tunable LEDs and Light Engines Category for LTM3 Tunable Color Light Engine and LT3E Tunable White Light Engine is named Finalist.

LOS ANGELES – February 17, 2020 – ERP Power LLC (“ERP”), a leading provider of small, smart and connected LED drivers and light engines for the lighting industry, today announced the company’s LTM3 and LT3E light engines were named a winner and a finalist at the LEDs Magazine 2020 Sapphire Awards – the featured event of the Strategies in Light conference.  The ERP LT3E tunable white light engine with Tri-mode Dimming, and LTM3 Araya5 tunable color light engine with wired and wireless digital controls integration, are designed to deliver flawless interactive lighting experiences.

“We are honored to have been recognized for our industry-leading light engines with integrated driver technologies,” said Michael Archer, CEO of ERP Power.  “These innovative new products position us well to capitalize on the IoT digital controls and full spectrum lighting industry trends.  ERP is driving quality of light by embedding intelligence, connectivity, and controls into a very compact footprint so lighting fixture designers need not compromise the creative style or capabilities of their luminaires.”

The Sapphire Awards finalists are recognized for breaking through technical barriers, achieving new levels of performance, reliability, light quality, cost reductions, and other features to deliver on the potential of lighting in applications from healthier and smarter buildings, to smart cities, to horticultural operations.  Winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges consisting of lighting industry professionals, designers, and industry leaders.

“The Sapphire Awards recognize and reward the passion and forward thinking that inspires professionals across all sectors of the LED lighting market to continue to innovate and rethink function, design, and future potential,” said Maury Wright, Editor-in-Chief of LEDs Magazine.

The patented technologies from ERP are engineered to enable lighting fixture designers to preserve their brand, simplify luminaire design, and accelerate time to market for specification grade fixtures with best-in-class quality of light, power density, and digital controls flexibility to ensure accuracy, control, and consistency.  The integration of power conversion and digital controls matched to the form and function of the light engine enables the vision of tunable light and power.  ERP delivers the broadest array of controls integration with support for Acuity Fresco, Avi-On, DALI, DMX, LeGrand WattStopper, Lutron EcoSystem, and Xicato to provision a lighting project with dozens to thousands of fixtures.

LTM3 Tunable Color Light Engine

The LTM3 with integrated Araya5 Logic and Power Module (ALPM) features a universal AC voltage input and enables tunable color linear arrays up to 8 feet in length using five colors of mid-power LEDs with excellent photometrics – dimming all the way down to 0.1%, and CRI of 90+ over the 1650K (candlelight) to 8000K (mid-afternoon sun) tuning range at <2 MacAdam ellipse color consistency, so the light will look the same from fixture to fixture.  The LTM3 + ALPM system enhances IES TM-30 metrics and continues to build upon a broad set of connectivity options, including 0- 10V, Bluetooth LE and several Bluetooth mesh alternatives, DMX512- A- RDM, Lutron EcoSystem, DALI Type 8, and Wattstopper DLM.  Precise natural light can be replicated and, as the hour changes, be timed to warm the space. The highest quality of light, full spectrum color consistency over life, natural sunlight emulation, and halogen dimming performance that’s e-flicker free all combine to deliver true and perfect illumination.  The LTM3 is the first integrated driver and light engine resulting from ERP Power’s acquisition of Lumenetix in June 2019.

LT3E Tunable White Light Engine

The LT3E integrated driver and light engine enables broad adoption of tunable white lighting based on its ease of integration, and simple controls at competitive cost.  Integrating the light engine and LED driver into a single embedded system, the lighting fixture design is simplified and dramatically reduces the cost of tunable white lighting installations.
