Future Lighting Solutions Updates the Lighting System Creator

Future Lighting Solutions, the world-class leader and innovator in demand creation, marketing and distribution of solid-state lighting technologies, announces significant enhancements to its Lighting System Creator design tool, available free of charge to engineers worldwide. The LSC, designed for enabling lighting designers to quickly and efficiently design lighting systems, now has several feature upgrades.

Feature Upgrades:
•    The LSC will optimize the temperature and current to minimize the LED count and suggest the most cost effective approach to meet target specifications using LEDs, COBs, and even modules and integrated light engines
•    In cases where the user wishes to consider one specific type of light-source for the application, the user can now specifically select their preference versus being presented with all possible technical solutions
•    The LSC now also includes light sources that do not yet have an available LM-80 report. This now enables users to consider recently released products for design consideration in to their fixtures
•    The tool also includes an automatic offset that incorporates the efficiency impact of the integrated driver and/or integrated optic for modules and light engines when applicable

“These upgrades represent significant enhancements and functionality to our tool,” said Patrick Durand, Worldwide Technical Director, Future Lighting Solutions. “This continues our quest to provide our customers with the most innovative and leading-edge tools available to help them build world-class luminaires efficiently,” said Durand.
