Slim linear LED system challenges CFL market

May 11, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Lumenpulse Inc. has announced the release and availability of Lumenline, a system of indoor linear LED luminaires introducing the benefits of high-quality LED lighting to commercial and institutional environments seeking lower energy and maintenance costs.

Lumpenpulse believes that the new system marks a significant breakthrough for LED technology, challenging the performance of traditional T5 HO fluorescent systems using a similarly slim 2-inch profile. Lumenline delivers 68 lumens per watt, offers - according to the vendor - outstanding photometric distribution, has a color rendering of 85 CRI and lasts for 100,000 operating hours (four times longer than fluorescent), making it a durable, high quality energy saver for offices and classrooms.

Lumenline is designed to be configurable, adapting to a variety of architectural and commercial building interiors. The system is available in Pendant, Surface Mount and Recessed formats, in single units of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 foot or continuous runs, and can be configured with various color temperatures, accessories and optics enabling both indirect and/or direct lighting.

The system has a slim 2-inch profile and a minimal product presence that blends into architecture without causing glare or discomfort. Lumenline also integrates with common commercial dimming and control standards such as Triac, ELV, 0-10V, DALI or DMX.

Furthermore, Lumenline is compatible with Lumentalk -- a technology released by Lumenpulse last week that enables digital control and monitoring over existing electrical wiring, a feature that eliminates the need for costly data wiring.
