Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, is pleased to announce that Fulham’s new EliteControl PoE 2-Channel LED Driver has received this year’s Sapphire’s Award for innovation in LED drivers from LEDs Magazine. The awards were presented at Strategies in Light in Las Vegas February 28.

The Sapphire Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts using various criteria, including innovation, user value, sustainability, impact, and meeting a defined need. The new Power over Ethernet (PoE) driver fills a void in the solid-state lighting market and was developed to meet the growing demand of Fulham customers for a PoE lighting solution. Fulham first demonstrated prototypes of its new PoE drivers at LightFair 2018 in May 2018.

“We are delighted that LEDs Magazine has recognized our new EliteControl PoE driver as a recipient of its Sapphire Award,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development for Fulham. “More of our customers are looking for luminaire control options and new ways to harness solid-state lighting as a platform for building automation. In fact, we have received a number of requests for a Power over Ethernet driver, and with this new EliteControl driver we offer both PoE and wireless Bluetooth mesh access. It’s part of Fulham’s commitment to continued innovation and anticipation of our customers’ needs.”

June Griffin, publisher of LEDs Magazine (http://www.ledsmagazine.com), said “This prestigious program allows our LED and Lighting Group to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and leaders in the solid-state lighting industry. Our 2019 Finalists are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”

The EliteControl PoE 2 Channel Driver uses power delivered over an Ethernet cable and has two-channel output for color mixing. The driver can handle an input voltage of 42.5 to 57VDCm with an input power of 12.95W maximum per port (as defined by IEEE 802.3af), 25.5W maximum per port (802.3at), and 51.0W maximum per port (UPOE). This constant current/constant power driver also includes Bluetooth mesh wireless access for remote dimming control.

The PoE driver output range and other functions can be preprogrammed using Fulham’s TPSB-100 SmartSet Controller and software. PoE color tuning and diming controls are managed using an amBX Smart Control management station that issues commands over the same Ethernet cable that delivers power.

The 2019 Sapphire Awards winners were announced at the Gala Event at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas on February 28, 2019. This event occurs during the annual Strategies in Light show held February 26 – March 1, 2019.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced the addition of a new HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System with bottom side leads and studs (BLS) form factor designed for downlight and troffer installations where the driver resides on top of the fixture. The new BLS configuration makes the HotSpot Plus even more versatile, providing an LED driver with emergency lighting functionality in a compact enclosure that can be easily installed in tight spaces. In fact, the HotSpot Plus is the smallest complete emergency LED system on the market.

The HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is an all-in-one unit that includes a 0-10V dimmable LED driver, emergency LED driver, and replaceable battery backup, thus eliminating the need to install a separate emergency lighting system. The HotSpot Plus functions as a 40W constant current LED driver with programmable output range of 250-1400mA. In the event of an emergency, the built-in battery automatically provides emergency lighting for up to 180 minutes at 5W or 90 minutes at 10W. In addition to the new BLS form factor, the HotSpot Plus also is available in a compact or linear design with end leads.

“Our HotSpot Plus units showcase some of Fulham’s latest lighting innovations,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director LED & Emergency Drivers for Fulham. “The HotSpot Plus combines an LED driver with battery-powered emergency lighting, available in three form factors for any type of installation, and the drivers are fully programmable using our SmartSet systems. Our objective is to deliver innovative, energy-efficient lighting solutions that are easy to install and can evolve with our customer’s needs. Clearly the HotSpot Plus fills the bill.”

One of Fulham’s growing family of smart, programmable LED drivers, the HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is programmable in 1mA increments using a handheld SmartSet controller. Fulham’s SmartSet programming enables integration of more efficient lighting modules in luminaire design with programmable step dimming and dim-to-off. It also features an illuminated test switch/AC power indicator and self-diagnostics. The driver comes with a five-year warranty.

Fulham’s SmartSet light programming platform uses either a handheld controller or SmartSet PC Software to control Fulham’s LED drivers. The driver doesn’t have to be powered on to be programmed, and SmartSet includes an auto-program feature that enables fast, one-touch programming of multiple fixtures.

All three models are now shipping from Fulham and its distribution partners in North America.
