Pulsar Light Introduces the LuxRAMP

Pulsar's LuxRAMP

Pulsar Light Luxeos luminaires are designed and tested to cope with all of the heat created by the LEDs. However, most of the time users are only using one or two channels, which means they're not using all of the LEDs. For example, if the user's Luxeos products are creating green light, the red, blue, and white LEDs aren't doing anything.

LuxRAMP is the latest update to Pulsar's drivers, which increases the output of the channels when they're used on their own. The company also made it so that if the user puts two channels on together it also boosts the output, but scaled proportionally so that the luminaire is always protecting the LEDs.

The result is, for most applications, a significant increase in brightness. The brightness also stays very consistent when changing colors, and with no compromise on LED lifetime.

Historically, having less colors meant that each color had a greater share of the overall power. Therefore, having less colors meant each color was brighter. When users select color-changing LED products, there was a trade off. The question was: Use an RGBW fixture and have a wider range of colors, or select an RGB fixture and get brighter individual colors? LuxRAMP lets the user have both.

LuxRAMP is built into the latest drivers in Pulsar's Luxeos products. The driver works out all of the channel levels automatically, so the user can use the fixture normally and benefit from the improved light output without any extra programming.

For LED lighting projects, LuxRAMP means that users can use fewer fixtures to get the same result, or the same number of fixtures and a brighter, more vibrant lighting scheme.

LuxRAMP works with Pulsar Luxeos 09 and Luxeos 18 luminaires, and with both Pulsar VC (Vivid Color) and VW (Vibrant White) light engines. LuxRAMP also works with custom LED populations in Pulsar's Luxeos 09 and Luxeos 18 products.
