Lumitec is no stranger to ground breaking innovation, form our industry-leading advances in powerful, economical surface mount underwater lights to the revolutionary TTP (Time Toggled Protocol) light control technology, which has been adopted as an industry standard. 2017 will be remembered as yet another milestone in Lumitec innovation history with the introduction our PLI (Power Line Instruction) technology. Winner of a prestigious 2017 IBEX Innovation Award PLI is an innovative, proprietary communication protocol used to send control or configuration instructions to Lumitec luminaires over the standard power wires. These messages can instruct the luminairs to change color, change intensity, ‘go-to’ pre-set outputs, initiate flash, pattern, ‘listen’ or other output modes, or invoke application-specific behaviors. The protocol is executed over typical 2-wire (power and ground) connection to the luminaire. In addition to advanced control of individual luminaires, multiple luminaires can be controlled as groups, for example, Cabin, T-top, Floods, Downlights etc. As a result, multiple virtual circuits can be created from a single hardwired circuit, allowing manufacturers to customize lighting control for customers from a single wiring plan. PLI does not require any additional wiring to a typical vessel’s rigging plan which utilizes a compatible digital switching system. As PLI is designed to operate on a 2-wire system, it is cost effective and simple for boat builders to deploy.
The Innovation Awards honored achievement in product development in 10 areas of the marine industry. Winners were selected by a panel of judges from Boating Writers International (BWI), a professional organization consisting of writers, editors, publishers, photographers, broadcasters, and communications professionals associated with the boating industry.
“These awards signify the importance that innovation plays in our industry, and IBEX is honored to recognize these key innovators and their products that keep the boating industry at the forefront of cutting edge trends,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director. “With more than 95 product entries, competition was tight and the winners chosen from our top-tier panel of BWI judges represent the best the industry has to offer, all of which can be viewed along Innovation Way throughout the Show.”
“This year the entries reflected many of the changing consumer trends and expectations of today’s boating lifestyle. Competition reached new levels, and many product innovations were designed for easier user interface,” said Alan Wendt, Chair of the Innovation Awards and Past President of Boating Writers International.
PLI technology will initially be introduced under a controlled release and will be available to select OEM partners only. For more information on this process please visit our PLI webpage HERE.
