Universal Lighting Introduces LED Strip Fixture Retrofit Kit with Bluetooth®

Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc. a global leader in lighting, and a member of the Panasonic Group, today announced the launch of its LRAxC LED Strip Fixture Retrofit Kit with Bluetooth Controls. The product comes as a natural addition to the expanding fixture control ecosystem options offered by Universal.

Designed with flexibility in mind, the LED Strip Retrofit Kit is used for replacing 4-foot or 8-foot fluorescent strip fixtures with LED including a Bluetooth Controller. The controller receives dimming and on/off commands. The LRAxC utilizes a simple Bluetooth Ecosystem for app based wireless control.

"We remain focused on growing our integrated lighting solutions and expanding our line of retrofit solutions, especially when it includes new ways to utilize Bluetooth controls," said Greg Bennorth, product director for LED at Universal Lighting Technologies. "This retrofit kit is part of a number of new integrated lighting solutions with intelligent components. Beyond simplifying LED upgrades, the Bluetooth controls allow users to unlock the potential for location-based services. Our solution gives you the flexibility to enable IoT wireless capabilities now or when you choose, because it is already part of your retrofitted luminaire."

The Bluetooth Controller is factory-mounted to the light bar while the aux power and dimming control leads are pre-wired to the driver. Utilizing a simple commissioning app, the installer can zone and group fixtures within a room and add room controls photo sensors and occupancy sensors.

Designed with flexibility in mind, installers can pick from two installation approaches. To simplify the process, the product can be mounted with existing lamp holder brackets like the current LED Strip Retrofit Assembly (LRA) or utilize flexible mounting with bendable brackets that easily wrap around the fixture body and screw into place.

The LRxCLED Strip Fixture Retrofit Kit with wireless Bluetooth control is ideal for a variety of applications needing an efficient, easy retrofit solution. Educational buildings, industrial spaces, offices and retail locations are ideal for this cutting-edge, connected lighting solution. This product is Title 24 and ASHRAE 90.1 compliant, DesignLights Consortium® qualified, RoHS compliant, UL Classified, and features a 5-year warranty.
