JLC Tech - T-Bar LED Smartlightht

The T-BAR LED Smartlight is a lighting system integrated into T-Bars for suspended ceilings, using the most powerful LEDs available on the market. This is possible due to our Patented high performance heat dissipating system, designed in the shape of a standard T-BAR to allow our product to be fully integrated or retrofit into any type of suspended ceiling.

Specifically designed by Armstrong, a XLED clip is mounted at each end for easy installation into Armstrong 15/16" or 9/16" ceiling suspension system allowing the fixture to become a part of the certified ceiling assembly eliminating the use of support wires. T-BAR LED Smartlight replaces selected cross tees of the grid ceiling suspension system where light is desired.

The T-BAR LED Smartlight is also available with a universal grid clip for non-Armstrong ceiling systems. There are several diffuser options including signage, allowing you to direct occupant traffic with your lighting.

Crestron SpaceBuilder™ from Crestron Electronics, Inc. on Vimeo.

Crestron SpaceBuilder simplifies design, installation, and start-up of commercial lighting control systems. Our patent-pending process dramatically reduces the time required to complete each phase of a lighting control project while greatly improving efficiency and scalability. How is this possible? It starts with our exclusive space-based approach to system design.

With SpaceBuilder, lighting controls are designed on a space-first basis rather than the conventional building-first approach. This methodology eliminates the over-specification and unnecessary programming inherent in large, centralized lighting control designs. Each space is configured with the optimal control system and accessories and nothing more.

Anyone can design lighting controls with SpaceBuilder. Use our online filter to quickly find the right system for your space. Configuration worksheets for our SpaceBuilder systems make it simple to define and generate quotes. No more wading through technical specifications and the impact on project schedules is immediate.

Each complete SpaceBuilder system ships in one box clearly labeled for the space it is intended. Rather than searching through pallets of dimmers, sensors, and keypads in a remote staging area, installers get one box for each room that has all the components, technical information, and wiring diagrams needed to complete the installation.

You can find more information on the Crestron SpaceBuilder website and from your local Vertex sales office.

Philips Lighting is always looking for opportunities to improve the Philips Luminaires eCatalog. Navigation, data, and search functions are continually added to, enhanced and stream-lined.

So Philips has just introduced a newly designed product family landing page. The redesigned page organizes technical data and assets such as images, product attributes, downloads, accessories, and lighting controls into easy to use tabs.
