Startup Makes Installing LED Lighting as Simple and Fun as LEGO
A UK-based startup promises a better way to install intelligent LED lighting and controls, by making it simple and fun to get started with a low-energy lighting system that not only saves energy and money for the user, but also reduces lighting-related greenhouse gas emissions.
Isotera’s LED lighting and control products offer a modular plug-n-play flexibility, allowing LED lighting systems to be designed and installed much quicker than conventional LED systems, with just a few basic hand tools.
“At Isotera our philosophy is that installing low energy lighting systems should be as simple and as fun as LEGO®. Simple means speed, simple means no mistakes, simple means no waste, simple means affordable costs. That is what will make people buy and install low energy lighting systems, and we are committed to making that happen.” – Isotera
The Isotera iPower line is designed to serve as the “complete backbone” for intelligent LED lighting, with a single cool-running power conversion device (iHub) for each line, feeding power through a double-insulated cable (iBus), which can be tapped into at any point along the line, without any cutting and splicing, thanks to the “contactless” iClip module.
By making installing LED lighting as simple and easy as snapping together components, Isotera may be moving the intelligent lighting industry forward in a big way, because a lighting retrofit to add LEDs to an existing location might not require an expensive or complicated rewiring, and installing LED lighting to new construction with the Isotera system is said to reduce the complexity, the cost, and the time needed on site, when compared with other LED systems.
“It is a seamless all-in-one Power & Control system and the first of its kind developed with LED light sources as the starting point. It features highly efficient contactless power transfer allowing virtually tool-free installation. The system offers an unprecedented combination of benefits: cost leading, simple and safe, flexible, durable and future proof.” – Isotera
In addition to the iPower system, Isotera’s iCon range offers simple and flexible lighting controls, from smart sensors to dimmer switches. The iSense sensor, which is also plug-n-play, features multiple functions in a single unit, from detecting occupancy to monitoring light levels, so that the lights can power down when not needed, and can be controlled and connected to other modules by using the company’s iLink cables.
