features Lutron’s Hi-lume® A Series LED driver technology with 1% dimming
Coopersburg, PA (September 7, 2011) - Ensuring compatibility between an energy-saving LED dimmer, driver and fixture is now simpler than ever. The new Finiré LED recessed lights, from Lutron's Ivalo Collection fixture division, ensures compatibility while offering high-efficacy performance with smooth, flicker-free dimming from 100% down to 1%.
More than ever, homeowners and business owners alike are making the switch to energy-efficient LEDs, which are expected to become even more widely adopted over the next 10 years. Finiré addresses common issues associated with LEDs, like quality of light and color concerns, by providing a complete solution that combines Lutron technology and innovation to produce high-quality light output with different color temperatures comparable to incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps.
The Finiré family is designed for use with Lutron's HomeWorks® QS and RadioRA® 2 total home control systems and any Hi-Lume LED driver compatible control, such as Lutron's Maestro Wireless® dimmers with Pico® wireless control. Finiré offers either a 15W or 18W LED, with equivalent light output of 60-90W incandescent lighting.
The benefits of Finiré include:
infrequent lamp changes
flexibility for various applications: the light module, driver and beam spreads are field interchangeable
immediate light output (without warm-up time)
"The introduction of these fixtures makes it quick and easy for installers to provide their clients with an LED solution," said David Weinstein, Lutron's vice-president of residential sales. "We're eliminating the guesswork and compatibility issues, giving installers an energy-efficient, one-stop shop solution."
Finiré is offered as a downlight, wallwash or adjustable fixture with several square and round 4" decorative trim styles, numerous finishes (matte white, matte black, clear bright alzak, wheat alzak, soft glow and oil-rubbed bronze) and lens options. Finiré is priced from $498 (list) and will begin shipping this fall.
Lutron's energy-saving RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS total home control systems control lights, automated window treatments, small appliances, temperature and more. The systems are programmed via an intuitive PC utility and include many energy-saving features. Lutron's patented Clear Connect™ wireless technology ensures reliable system performance.
