Recessed luminaire combines the latest LED technology and contemporary design

Jan 17, 2013

Cooper Lighting and Safety, a leading manufacturer of mains and emergency lighting solutions for commercial and industrial applications has launched a new recessed LED luminaire. Sentience™ combines modern aesthetics with the latest energy efficient LED technology to create a versatile fitting for use in modular suspended ceilings.

Available in two sizes, 600mm x 600mm and 1200mm x 300mm, it is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including commercial office spaces. The new luminaire brings together clean contemporary lines to create a versatile recessed luminaire suitable for exposed ‘T’ lay in installations. The nano-engineered satin diffuser provides controlled distribution with excellent light transmission. In conjunction with a microprism panel, this optical design delivers high efficacy and aids compliance with Part L/Section 6 efficacy targets whilst contributing to the EN124641-1 requirements for scheme design.

Sentience™ offers outstanding performance and efficiency of more than 81 Llm/cW. This high efficacy and optical performance makes the luminaire eligible for the Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme. This enables a business to claim 100% first-year capital allowances on their spending on energy efficient equipment, resulting in a reduced cost of ownership.

Sentience™ has a colour temperature of 4000°k, combined with a CRI (colour rendering index) greater than 80,(4 Macadam Standard Deviation of Colour Matching/SDCM). Luminaires are fitted with either High Frequency, or DALI / DSI dimming control gear as standard options. Rear mounted plug and socket connections enable easy installation with no need to disassemble the luminaire during connection. DALI models come with an additional segregated DALI plug and socket, again keeping installation simple.

Sentience™ glare control allows for use in the demanding world of commercial offices, while the luminaires’ discreet integrated emergency chips help keep a clean, modern and integrated look. In all, Sentience delivers user comfort while maximising the luminaire’s whole life cost savings.
