Legrand’s Wattstopper® and Pinnacle Brands Come Together for First Ever OEM Partnership in Human Centric Lighting

San Jose, Calif., October 21, 2019 – Legrand North & Central America, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, today announced a partnership that brings Wattstopper Human Centric Lighting (HCL) capabilities to Pinnacle Architectural Lighting’s luminaires to simplify design, installation, and occupant control for tunable lighting projects. This marks the first fixture manufacturer partnership between the company’s Wattstopper product line and Pinnacle brand for HCL and embedded controls.

HCL, lighting that is designed and applied to increase quality of light and visual comfort, signals the next phase of LED lighting innovation where light and art come together to create beautifully illuminated spaces. Together, Wattstopper’s HCL capabilities and Pinnacle products bring elegant, stylish fixtures with the benefits of HCL to any space.

Pinnacle luminaires integrated with Wattstopper HCL light engines are easy to specify and ensure seamless integration. Wattstopper blanco® 3 tunable white LED light engines are available in EDGE Evolution fixtures, including EDGE 2, EDGE 3, EDGE 4 and MOFFAT and COVE product families. Pinnacle’s EDGE Evolution fixtures are the next generation in Pinnacle Lighting’s EDGE family.

With a tunable range of 2700K-6500K, blanco 3 is a three-channel LED light engine that adjusts correlated color temperatures precisely along the blackbody locus within 2 MacAdam ellipse to replicate natural daylight. Wattstopper HCL solutions takes the complexity out of tunable lighting projects with an integrated, turnkey system of tunable LED light engines designed to be integrated into luminaires and controlled by Wattstopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) platform.

“The integration of Wattstopper LED Light Engines into stylish luminaires from Pinnacle make it easy for a specifier to incorporate into their building designs with lighting that will provide a unique experience to building occupants,” says Dave Kaminski, Product Marketing Manager, Wattstopper at Legrand.
