contactless power for LED lighting

Isotera and Havells-Sylvania announce strategic alliance

In a world where LED technology is on the increase, a fresh approach to complete system lifetime, reliability and ease of installation is required.

Lumiance powered by Isotera is a unique and market changing LED power and control system that offers unrivalled installation speed, flexibility and ease of configuration. It is inherently more reliable and durable than traditional driver systems and works with any constant current LED luminaire. The Isotera system removes the need for mains wiring to fixtures, ensuring total safety during installation and operation.

The patented technology is perceived as one of the most significant innovations in energy-efficient lighting of the last 10 years, offering compelling benefits to specifiers, installers and end-users.

The system covers everything between the distribution board and LED lighting fixtures: Power Conversion: from Mains power to any constant DC current without LED drivers. Wiring: a single cable without junctions to distribute power to a large group of LED fixtures. Connectors: transferring power from the cable to LED fixtures without making electrical contact. Controls: smooth dimming, individual lamp control, presence & absence detection, daylight compensation, all extremely simple to install, no LCMs, no commissioning.

The power element of the system is an ultra-efficient bulk power converter, iHub, which converts mains (230V AC) into low-voltage high frequency (HFAC) constant current, which is distributed via a simple twisted pair cable. Patented inductive couplers attach to this cable which feed constant-current DC LED power to the luminaire. Inductive Couplers are available up to 50W with a range of output currents (mA) and are compatible with any constant current Havells Sylvania or third-party LED luminaire. All Lumiance LED luminaires including Insaver LED, Instar LED, Motto Trend LED and more are available with couplers ready-connected for rapid deployment. For emergency-lighting requirements a simple module turns any luminaire in to a 3 hour emergency fixture.

The control element is delivered via a SELV plug and play system, utilising RJ11 connections for speed and ease of configuration and re-configuration. Sensors for occupancy / absence and daylight-linked dimming. Super-smooth dimming and on / off and control is achieved through a compact interface that wires into normal wall-switches. The range is completed with connectors for wiring multiple modules to allow for easy multi-way switching.
