MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.
Lumenpulse Inc. (TSX: LMP), a leading pure-play specification-grade LED lighting solutions provider, has launched Lumenalpha, an exceptional range of architectural downlights and spotlights, which sets new standards in performance, light quality, flexibility and lifetime.
Available worldwide, the collection boasts over 30 new luminaires and thousands of options, forming an unmatched global program for commercial, retail, institutional and hospitality markets.
"We want to give specifiers the freedom to create designs that would be unimaginable with other downlights," says Francois-Xavier Souvay, President and CEO of Lumenpulse. "To do that, we had to completely rethink our optical design."
With an emphasis on visual quality, Lumenalpha optics ensure smooth, even beam distributions with exceptional optical control. A 10-degree narrow optic produces a beautiful, high-intensity beam with minimal spill, ideal for dramatic accentuation or high-ceiling applications.
For vertical illumination, Lumenalpha now offers a unique asymmetric wallwash optic, studied to produce outstanding uniformity while spaced far apart in order to require the fewest number of luminaires.
Meanwhile, a newly developed LED chip manufactured to Lumenpulse's own specification and a proprietary thermal management system result in an unprecedented LED lifetime of 225,000 hours (L70 at Ta 40 degrees C) and no visible color shift over 5 years.
"Lumenpulse has rewritten the script when it comes to color stability and LED lifetime," adds Souvay. "With an L95 of 55,000 hours, clients will have peace of mind knowing their projects will maintain at least 95% of initial light levels after five years."
In a first for Lumenpulse, Lumenalpha products are being manufactured on both sides of the Atlantic simultaneously - a testament to the company's commitment to provide a consistently high service quality to specifiers all over the world.
All Lumenalpha fixtures can be equipped with Lumentalk technology as standard so they can be easily controlled via existing power lines. Lumentalk is a breakthrough technology that enables advanced digital control of LED lighting over existing track and electrical wiring maximizing cost and energy savings. With Lumentalk, electrical wiring becomes a stable, noise-free, high-speed communications link, enabling LED fixtures to be dimmed or programmed without the cost and disruption of additional wiring. The technology is protocol independent, making it compatible with common dimmer and control standards: 0-10V, DMX, or phase dimming.
All Lumenalpha downlights and spotlights are available for shipment. Please visit lumenalpha.com for availability and conditional terms.
As part of the Lumenpulse Group, Lumenalpha designs, manufactures and sells high performance LED downlights and spotlights, offering unbeatable colour quality for retail, hospitality, institutional, commercial and architectural applications. Lumenalpha has been recognized by the industry, winning a Queen's Award for Enterprise and Lux Awards' Manufacturer of the Year prize in 2013. After being acquired by Lumenpulse in July 2014, the product line was rebranded as Lumenalpha for the North American market in February 2015.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
