ProSource has announced that its new Lighting Technology and Learning Center will feature a Vantage end-to-end human-centric lighting (HCL) system — with load control provided by the DMX-DALI-GATEWAY and InFusion Controller II — for precise dimming of WAC Aether Series light fixtures.
The Learning Center will be inaugurated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 23, 2021, at the start of the popular Lightovation trade show, scheduled for March 23-26. Dave Workman, president and CEO of ProSource, will preside at the opening festivities at 10:00 AM CST. The space will provide an opportunity for retail and design-build customers to learn about lighting applications and advancements in an immersive setting. Eventually, the Learning Center will be available for hands-on, live Level 2 curriculum of the ProSource Lighting Technology Certification program, which was launched earlier this year through ProSource University.
The new Learning Center will demonstrate the seamless way in which Vantage integrates with lighting fixtures and third-party platforms. Visitors will see how the Vantage controller can precisely determine the center’s longitude and latitude, which allows it to automatically calculate sunrise and sunset times on any given day for that location. It can then set the lighting schedule accordingly to replicate the ideal conditions of daylight based on color tone and intensity throughout the day, without any intervention required.
“Visitors to the Learning Center can interact with the Vantage HCL system using the Equinox 41 glass LCD touchscreen controller and the EasyTouch Glass modular keypad station, both of which combine powerful functionality with a sleek, contemporary design,” says Charlie Derk, director of product marketing, shading and residential controls, Legrand North and Central America.
Using the Equinox 41 and EasyTouch Glass interfaces, visitors can change between five pre-programmed natural light scenes: Daylight Sync, Sunrise, Midday, Night Light, and Solar Cycle. The Learning Center provides an opportunity for dealers to learn more about Vantage and the latest lighting technology in an environment that highlights integration for a cohesive HCL system. Designed by David Warfel and Mark Langston, both of Light Can Help You, the customized Lighting Technology and Learning Center will feature multiple residential rooms showcasing smart home systems and devices for the benefit of ProSource members.
