Advanced Control Network is a lighting control protocol to allow complex interoperability between lighting equipment and control systems over Ethernet based networks.
Art-Net is a lighting control protocol created by Wayne Howell of Artistic License. Its primary function is to send DMX control data over Ethernet networks.
Art-Osc is a lighting control protocol created by Wayne Howell of Artistic License. Its primary function is to transfer DALI control data over Ethernet networks.
Candle-White™ luminaires are equipped with specially selected 2500° Kelvin LEDs to provide light quality comparable with a
Cloud-Control™ software application provides configuration of AXALIGHT Cloud-Drive enabled
Cloud-Drive™ technology connects drivers and luminaires using wireless technology and eDMX protocols.
Chip-on-Board (COB) LEDs are arrays of multiple LEDs. Due to the high LED density, they are powerful for their size, making them an alternative option to using individual LEDs.
Colour Rendering Index measures the average quality (Ra) of traditional light sources and considered not representative of modern light sources where the use of CQS, TM-30 or TLCI measurements is prefered.
CC power supplies and drivers regulate their output current to a fixed value e.g. 350mA.
CV power supplies and drivers regulate their output voltage to a fixed value e.g. 24 Volts.
The Digital Addressable Lighting Interface is a lighting control protocol primarily used for static scene setting of commercial lighting systems such as offices, hotels and airports.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is used on UDP/IP networks to dynamically assign IP address and other network configuration parameters to each device on a network.
DMX is a standard defining interconnection between lighting controllers and lighting equipment. DMX is primarily used in entertainment and dynamic architectural applications. For DMX pinouts click here
eDMX describes protocols that transmit DMX lighting control data over Ethernet networks such as ArtNet and
Filament-White™ luminaires are equipped with specially selected 2700° Kelvin LEDs to provide light quality comparable with tungsten halogen light sources.
Human Centric Lighting is a term that relates to lighting designs and systems intended to focus on the health and well-being of the human occupants of a lighting scheme.
Local Area Network. A relatively small localised computer network such as those used in offices, hotels, airports and dwellings.
The lumen (symbol: lm) is the SI derived unit of luminous flux, a measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source.
The lux (symbol: lx) is the SI derived unit of illuminance and luminous emittance, measuring luminous flux per unit area. It is equal to one lumen per square metre.
Power-Match™ optimises light output by allowing increased power when not all of the LEDs are driven in a colour mixing AXALIGHT luminaire.
PreSure™ system allows for validating luminaires IP rating during manufacture and after service operations.
Remote Device Management is industry standard protocol allowing configuration of RDM enabled devices over standard DMX-512 cabling.
RS-485 defines an electrical standard for serial communication. The DMX-512 protocol is based on RS-485.
Streaming Advanced Control Network is a lighting protocol its primary function is to send DMX control data over Ethernet networks.
Safety Extra Low Voltage refers to electrical systems and equipment that operates on <= 60VDC or <=24VAC.
A Service Set IDentifier is
The Television Lighting Consistency Index measures 18 colours and a root-mean-square calculation method and is used for measuring television lighting sources.
The IES TM-30 Fidelity Index measures 99 colours with a root mean fidelity result (Rf). TM-30 is considered more representative than CRI and CQS measurements.
Twin-White™ combines two differing colour temperatures within the same luminaire. When dimmed separately the colour temperature can be varied.
Wi-Fi wireless networks allow Ethernet (IP) based communication without wires. Wi-Fi networks range from a single access point to large scale enterprise systems.
