Power management company Eaton of Peachtree City, Georgia USA, launched the Neo-Ray Covera™ and Converge™ architectural suspended product families. The new suspended luminaires feature the company’s next generation curved WaveStream™ LED technology.
The two pendant families combine a modern, minimalist design and advanced optical performance with connected lighting capabilities. The two pendant families also introduce Eaton’s LuxWire™technology that suspends the luminaires in space without unsightly power cables.
Eaton’s patented WaveStream LED technology uses the company’s AccuAim™ optics to provide unparalleled brightness control while delivering optimal light distributions tailored to each fixture and application.
The advanced LuxWire technology brings low-voltage power to the luminaires through the same aircraft cables from which it’s suspended. This arrangement allows drivers and bulky power cords to be placed above the ceiling.
The Neo-Ray Covera product family comes in 2- or 4-foot lengths with a variety of mounting options and lumen packages. The family’s curved optical design makes the luminaire suitable for a variety of applications ranging from task and decorative lighting to ambient lighting in an open office.
Custom finish options unique to the Covera luminaires include of selection of three standard and six architectural hydrographic finishes.
Eaton’s Converge LED suspended luminaire family comes in 4- and 8-foot individual luminaires and for continuous runs set at 4-foot increments, with a variety of mounting options. The option of either curvilinear or rectilinear profiles adds to its design flexibility.
Eaton contends that Converge’s uplight distribution provides ideal ceiling uniformity that allows an increase in row spacing regardless of the suspension length. The increased luminaire row spacing translates to lower total installed lighting cost as well as a reduction in watts per square foot.
Integral 0-10V dimming drivers come standard, and a wide range of enabled and connected lighting options are also available. An optional FifthLight DALI driver can enable addressable digital control. The luminaires also allow other control options.
The Covera and Converge products are also available with Eaton’s connected lighting solutions. The use of the Distributed Low-Voltage Power (DLVP) System simplifies energy efficiency code compliance and streamlines installation. Eaton claims that the DLVP system reduces the total cost of installing lighting with controls by up to 20 percent.
The company says that its LumaWatt Pro Connected Lighting System powered by Enlighted, establishes a unified solution for building management and automation that can both reduce energy costs and improve occupant comfort.
Advanced Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities enable the system to acquire actionable, granular data about the energy used for lighting, as well as data about lighting performance, space utilization, HVAC, asset tracking, and more.
“The new curved WaveStream technology delivers the same precise optical performance as our planer WaveStream solutions, and combined with the LuxWire technology, offers specifiers a unique, sophisticated and elegant suspended ambient illumination solution,” said Tim Bingaman, general manager, Neo-Ray. “By adding our enabled or connected lighting solutions, customers can save on installation and operating costs, reduce maintenance costs and increase overall energy savings.”
