Lighting based in Chicago, Illinois, announced a new undercabinet LED light for
residential and commercial use. The company will unveil its new 13-inch
and 19-inch Unilume LED Undercabinet System fixtures at the Dallas International
Lighting Market, January 19 – 23 (Showroom #4705-TM). The lights use an Intematix
ChromaLit remote phosphor light source in which an LED lights a separate linear
phosphor element resembling a lens rather than having a phosphor applied directly
to the LEDs. According to Tech Lighting, the remote phosphor technology allows
the Unilume to produce an even, glare-free wash of light along its entire length.
"Undercabinet lighting was one of the first applications to
go LED," said Tech Lighting General Manager Josh Weiss. "Since
then, with the majority of undercabinet fixtures designed around traditional undercabinet
housings, there has been little in the way of innovation. We decided to enter
the category only if we knew we could advance it, and with Intematix’s ChromaLit
technology, we are confident we can do just that."
