Articulight Introduces the LINOCOLOR Range, An LED Alternative to Neon Lighting

Articulight Introduces the LINOCOLOR Range, An LED Alternative to Neon Lighting

Articulight, Inc. has added a new line to their popular aptly named LINOCOLOR lighting system. LINOCOLOR offers - flexibility, durability, LED-based energy efficiency and color. LINOCOLOR contains color specific dyes that enhance color brightness in daylight hours as well. LINOCOLOR are available in Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Orange and 3 versions of white: warm, pure (standard) and cold.

The range includes LINOCOLOR, LINOCOLOR ULTRA THIN (thinner version for specific applications where space and look are important) and LINOCOLOR RGB ( and LINOCOLOR CRYSTAL (same as LINOCOLOR but with clear jacket for more brightness), LINOCOLOR CRYSTAL RGB.  It's available in Standard version (most popular) and also in ULTRA HP (30% higher output and brighter than Standard version) for application where increased brightness is important, and in Economy version (20% less output than Standard but with 25% savings) where cost effectiveness is required.

Articulight's LINOCOLR lighting systems have rapidly been gaining popularity among designers, architects, specifiers and engineers as well as facilities managers and end users who like the look of neon, but want a more energy efficient and versatile alternative. LINOCOLOR has the same appearance as traditional neon lighting, but requires less energy, is more flexible and durable, and can be used in many applications where neon is not appropriate.

LINOCOLOR is a system of durable UV protected strings lined with LED lamps and color-specific dyes for illumination. The system is flexible enough to bend up to 180 degrees, offering a user-friendly alternative to delicate, glass-based neon bulbs. LINOCOLOR contains no harmful gases, making it safe to handle, and can be custom cut and shaped on-site, without the need for specially trained personnel.

The new LED-ColorFLEX lighting system looks exactly like traditional neon, and provides brilliant color day or night. In addition to reducing energy and maintenance costs, LINOCOLOR is completely sealed and impervious to shock or vibration, making it suitable for outdoor use, for areas subject to vibration, and even wet applications.

The LED lamps used for illumination in LINOCOLOR require as little as 1.92 watts of energy per foot, making them 10% to 50% more energy efficient than traditional lighting, including neon. This reduction in energy consumption makes LINOCOLOR a cost-effective and environmentally sound alternative to neon lighting in many applications.

LINOCOLOR is also more stable than neon. While neon, incandescent and fluorescent lighting sources rely on a combination of filaments and/or gases, which fail after a limited number of hours, LINOCOLOR uses a semi-conducting material that converts electricity directly into light, which is then enhanced by the color-specific dyes.

The LED technology allows LINOCOLOR to last up to 100,000 hours, which translates into more than 10 years if run continuously. This drastically reduces maintenance time and cost.

Thanks to special anti-UV treatment, the LINOCOLOR can withstand extreme temperatures especially where the sun is brutal and will not become brittle over time.

LINOCOLOR will save all users on maintenance costs when compared to neon, But these savings become more significant in settings like casinos that have constant traffic, or the exterior of high-rises or bridges, where routine maintenance requires extraordinary -- and expensive -- safety precautions be taken.

LINOCOLOR gives off minimal levels of heat and can be used in areas that may come in contact with people, products or decorative materials. Appropriate for both interior and exterior applications, the LINOCOLOR lighting system is ideal for architectural borders on high-rise buildings, casinos, signage, step and path lighting, bridges, cruise ships, amusement park rides, hotels, cove lighting, retail stores, display cases and shelves, freezers and refrigerators, just to name a few.

Articulight Launches the SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49, High Output High Performance Projector

Articulight Launches the SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49, High Output High Performance Projector

Articulight is launching the SPECTACOLOUR PRO, a high output and high performance fixture. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 is an LED color changing projector suitable both for indoor and outdoor applications. It uses as its light source 49 high-power 1W and 3W LEDs. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 creates an evenly diffused light beam, ideal for illuminating large areas and able to be controlled precisely in all its main characteristics: luminous intensity, RGB color mixing, color temperature. The extremely compact lines and IP65 rating make the SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 ideal for installation in a wide range of applications, including structures, facades, urban sites, monuments, buildings, museums, art galleries, libraries and shopping malls. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 is also the ideal means for dynamically coloring backdrops in contexts such as theater, television and photography studios. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 has a range of interchangeable lenses ranging from 10 degrees to 60 degrees , offering various projection angles and allowing SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 fixtures to be used at different distances from the objects to be illuminated.

Mechanical features

SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 has unusual, particularly stylish lines that enable it to discreetly fit into the surroundings and harmonically adapt to the architectural elements and settings to be lit. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 is preset for various types of installations:
* Floor or wall-mounted by means of four holes on its base, using M6 screws.
* Flown from trussing - even upside down - (by fitting a clamp to the two Fast-Lock holes on its base).
* Floor-standing (on flat surfaces), maintaining utmost stability with any head angle.

SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 has extremely compact dimensions and lightweight The head can be inclined vertically or horizontally, in order to best adapt to the areas and architectural elements to be illuminated.

SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 is totally silent, because it does not use any type of forced ventilation. The fixture is convection-cooled by means of its rear finning, and an electronic self-regulating internal temperature system ensures continuous operation even in extreme conditions.


All SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 functions can be controlled via USITT Standard DMX 512 serial digital signal or RS 232 serial signal. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 transmits and receives on eight DMX channels.

SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 can be completely programmed and operated without the use of any external controller. In stand-alone mode, i.e. using just SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49's on-board microcomputer, it's possible to form systems consisting in a maximum of 30 fixtures (1 MASTER and 29 SLAVES), which can be programmed independently. SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 can also be controlled via computer, or using a third party DMX control system. In this case, it's possible to connect dozens of fixtures and control them simultaneously via DMX.

SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 has a menu with a large number of functions, which enable users to:
* configure fixtures according to requirements
* program them
* test their components
* receive information on their operation.
The menu is accessed by means of a user-friendly interface with a 10-digit display. The on-board software can be upgraded via DMX.

The on-board menu offers an extremely interesting function for architectural and decorative illumination applications: the possibility to run the completely automatic playback of a series of 48 events, previously programmed on the SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49 and organized to be run over a period of a week. Each event can include different settings of luminous intensity and color mixing, shutter effects (strobe, pulse, random strobe), macro (rainbow, random color), etc. The order, the precise instant in which they begin and duration of each event can be precisely programmed for 7 days directly on the SPECTACOLOUR PRO 49. The result is truly flexible illumination, able to create different atmospheres that change through time - extremely gradually or instantly - according to programmers' creativity.For more detailed info: SPECTACOLOUR_PRO. Another product in this high output high performance category is the SPECTACOLUR PRO 90 SPECTACOLOUR_PC90.
