First Motorised Luminaire With Dynamic Beam Shaping And Smart Wireless Controls

Moto GimbaloAlliance between lighting pioneers formalighting, LensVector and Casambi takes LED lighting to the next level

formalighting, a leader in motorised architectural lighting products, has introduced luminaires that make aiming, directing, and shaping light easier and faster to configure and adjust. Working together with LensVector, a specialist in Dynamic Beam Shaping™ technology and Casambi, the market-leading developer of wireless lighting control systems based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), formalighting’s new luminaires prove the longstanding expectation, that solid-state lighting capabilities will exceed those of the previous generation of light sources.

Michael Monsonego, General Manager of formalighting, commented: ‘We are delighted to be introducing the world’s first motorised luminaire with LensVector’s Dynamic Beam Shaping and Casambi’s smart wireless control technology. We believe in utilizing the most exciting new technologies to address the design challenges faced by lighting professionals.’

For the first time, lighting designers and electrical consultants can effortlessly add new lighting effects to projects by using the new fixtures in formalighting’s MOTOLUX range. The integrated technology within the motorised luminaires offers smart control over the beam angle, movements of the fixture, as well as the intensity and the white colour tuning of the light.

MOTOLUX trackLensVector’s Dynamic Beam Shaping technology turns liquid crystal molecules into a series of modifiable micro-lenses. The technology delivers unmatched precision beams and dynamic dramatic effects. It allows the beam from MOTOLUX luminaires to be adjusted along a continuum from a less-than-ten-degree narrow spot angle to a very wide 50-degree flood, flowing fluidly through all the all points in between.

Casambi’s wireless control technology enables lighting designers to take advantage of the full featured professional lighting control platform Casambi provides as well as the fast-growing range of ‘Casambi ready’ control devices (including sensors and switches) from an ever-growing list of leading manufacturers.

Brent York, President and CEO of LensVector, commented: ‘The marriage of great design and technology allows MOTOLUX users to precisely control the beam of light in a simple and convenient manner via Bluetooth app on their smartphone. We’re excited to see how the LensVector technology is being applied to add value to LED luminaires.’

Casambi’s CEO Timo Pakkala commented: ‘Casambi’s market-leading position in wireless lighting control is demonstrated by this innovative lighting collaboration with formalighting and LensVector. MOTOLUX is part of the growing community of Casambi-ready connected luminaires and supporting digital devices for professional lighting schemes used in retail stores, art galleries, restaurants and hotels, among other venues.’

Created for environments needing frequent scene changes, MOTOLUX motorised fixtures will quickly and easily re-configure a space to meet the demanding requirements of end users. Eliminating the need for ladders and scissor lifts, the MOTOLUX range of track, pendant and recessed fixtures can pan and tilt, dim, dim to warm and change colour temperature on command. They can be controlled individually or in groups with no special equipment, giving users a level of control and time savings that translate to cost savings.
