Philadelphia, PA, May 9, 2017 – Light has never been smarter or more beautiful. Expanding its reveal® TriGain™ technology offering across its popular Lumination Series of energy-efficient LEDs, Current, powered by GE (NYSE:GE) is transforming more spaces with optimized color quality and enhanced energy efficiency. The expansion is a significant opportunity for customers particularly in the retail space, where color quality is a critical lighting element.
“Retail and commercial lighting designers need excellent color quality to bring out the beauty of objects and architecture on display,” said Jerry Duffy, General Manager, LED Technology. “Until now, achieving optimal color rendering quality meant sacrificing energy efficiency. With reveal TriGain, there is no compromise, and now we’re making this enhanced capability available across Lumination fixtures to fit any customer’s needs.”
Leveraging decades of material science expertise, GE developed a narrow-band red phosphor that increases both the color rendering index (CRI) and R9, a saturated red critical to color accuracy, while significantly improving LED and system efficacy. Through patented, proprietary improvements to phosphor synthesis, reveal TriGain improves color quality in premium performance lighting systems, without design complexities or changes to luminaire structure.
Current combines the capabilities of GE’s energy efficient LEDs with cutting-edge sensors and software to optimize customers’ energy use and increase business productivity. Powered by Predix*, GE’s cloud-based platform for the Industrial Internet, Current’s LED fixtures not only illuminate spaces but transform lighting systems into an intelligent digital infrastructure.
“As we’re installing LED fixtures, we can simultaneously attach a sensor-based digital network that collects data and offers valuable insights to our customers,” said Peter Atanasovski, Senior Product Manager, Intelligent Environments. “And our growing ecosystem of partners offer applications specific to customers’ needs. For instance, we work with several partners who serve retailers with in-store wayfinding, geotargeted mobile coupons and shopper pattern data. These apps can help customers optimize their operations and improve the in-store experience.”
The company recently announced it has now expanded its network of digital application partners to more than 100 companies, paving the way for future digital lighting innovation.
“At Current, we’re helping customers not only optimize color quality and energy efficiency, but also how they’re operating their businesses,” said Duffy. “That’s the power of our lighting today.”
