LHUMAN KolorTune™ Offers Designers and Specifiers the Freedom to Choose From a Broad Selection of Tunable Light Fixtures for Simplified Human Centric Lighting Applications
CARLSBAD, Calif. — Aug. 22, 2023 — Legrand’s luxury residential lighting control brand Vantage today announced its LHUMAN KolorTune™ capability available in the Vantage Design Center software. LHUMAN KolorTune™ enables one of the widest selections of tunable fixtures to be used in a lighting control system and provides the tunable controllable profiles needed to create lighting scenes with precise color temperature. The library of fixture profiles opens the door to immense lighting design freedom, simplicity, and affordability for achieving tunable and human-centric lighting (HCL) designs.
“LHUMAN KolorTune is the next wave of lighting technology,” said Richard Laliberty, Product Marketing Manager, Shading and Vantage Residential Controls, Legrand North America. “Available within Design Center, with KolorTune integrators can more easily achieve HCL with the fixtures of their choosing, with tested color temperatures, and with peace of mind that the tunable color control will be accurate. KolorTune profiles make it possible to achieve flexible lighting designs quickly, thereby elevating lighting control with a system that provides a richer, more intelligent lighting experience to customers and a faster integration for installers.”
LHUMAN KolorTune™ is the latest development in Vantage’s LHUMAN HCL solution. Here’s how it works and solves the problem for integrators needing HCL capabilities in a lighting design: Vantage performs thorough analysis of a fixture’s color tune mapping from leading lighting fixture manufacturers using professional metering equipment. From those tests, the company develops free tunable profiles for many makes and models of fixtures, with more being added in new releases of the Design Center software. Integrators and designers can also request profiles for new fixtures not already in the library.
Within Design Center, installers simply select the chosen fixture(s) and the software will automatically provide the defined fixture control details and color temperature mapping for the lighting fixture. The programmer can then assign the matching control channel addresses and begin programming scenes. This not only achieves super simple and fast programming, but also allows Vantage’s InFusion Controller to provide the correct color mix, producing accurate color temperature and intensity for the lighting task selected. There’s no need to determine and enter individual color values. What’s more, designers can mix and match tunable fixtures in the room with the assurance that values will match from fixture to fixture for a cohesive room lighting design; and it supports 0-10V, DMX, and DALI control protocols.
The KolorTune™ ease and freedom will be demonstrated in the Experience Room in Legrand booth 1506 at CEDIA Expo 2023. The Experience Room will feature tunable light fixtures from partners in the LHUMAN Light Fixture Alliance, including Proluxe by American Lighting, AiSPiRE/WAC, DiodeLED/Lucetta from Elemental LED, DMF Lighting, PureEdge Lighting, Noº 8 Lighting, and LF Illumination. The alliance also includes Environmental Lights, Specialty Lighting Industries, Colorbeam, Soraa Lighting, Tech Lighting, Circa Lighting, and Lucifer Lighting Company.
The Vantage LHUMAN solution automatically adjusts a home’s light throughout the day, fully synchronized to the natural daylight from the sun — while easily making changes on the fly with preset scenes that deliver the appropriate color temperature and intensity to meet their current activity, need, or mood. Whether users need to stay alert and productive during the day, or wind down in the evening, all it takes is the touch of a button on a sleek Vantage touchscreen or modular keypad.
To fully harness the power of natural lighting, LHUMAN also takes advantage of motorized window shades, which allow users to effortlessly open their homes to bright, sunny days — as much or as little as they like. By integrating shades such as those from Legrand Shading Systems with Vantage lighting control, shades can be programmed to raise and lower automatically at any time of the day or be controlled by users with the same touchscreens and keypads as their lighting.
