The energy-efficient Solatube Smart LED System is in a category all by itself. This revolutionary commercial LED lighting system unites advanced Light Energy Diode (LED) technology with proven Solatube daylighting design. Starting at the roof level, patented dome technology captures daylight and transmits it indoors through the world’s most reflective tubing to spaces once thought impossible to reach with natural lighting. At the same time, proprietary SunSense Technology monitors daylight levels in the system and automatically triggers the LEDs when daylight levels get too low. All of this combines to make the Smart LED System and unbeatable sustainable lighting option and the most energy-efficient commercial lighting solution for small to medium-sized spaces.   

 


Flexible design

The Smart LED System was designed to operate individually to illuminate small areas or in dual configurations to attain predictable lighting results for medium-sized spaces. It also can be used to create specific architectural effects using wall washes and soffit lighting, making the Smart LED System an intelligent solution for achieving ambient light levels in spaces with ceiling heights up to 10 ft.

 

Reduces energy costs

During the day, the Smart LED System lights interiors using no-cost, natural light. As the sun starts to set and light levels fall, energy-efficient LEDs activate automatically to provide illumination for early morning and evening use. The result is a commercial daylighting solution that significantly cuts electricity use and delivers up to 94% in light energy savings.

 

 

 

 

Seasonal adaptability

Adequate light output is important for occupant satisfaction and productivity. The Smart LED System’s unique dual lighting design makes it extremely effective at delivering consistent lighting, regardless of hour or season. In winter, when days are shorter, daylight is supplemented by the system’s LEDs to ensure minimum lighting requirements are met throughout the day. In the spring and summer, when days are longer and more daylight is available, the LEDs are triggered only in the early morning and evening when they’re needed.  

 

Extended life

Unlike traditional light sources, LEDs expend significantly less energy to produce light. For this reason, they can last up to three times longer than compact fluorescent lamps, eight times longer than halogen lamps, and a whopping 25 times longer than incandescent lamps. The LED bulbs in the Smart LED System are designed to last up to 20 years, making maintenance easier since re-lamping will be unnecessary for decades.

 

Hands-free convenience

The Smart LED System constantly monitors daylight levels using proprietary SunSense Technology. When exterior daylight conditions are too dim, the LEDs automatically activate to maintain acceptable light levels, day or night. When daylight levels are sufficient, the LEDs turn off automatically. This hands-free approach eliminates the need for light level adjustments, providing added convenience for building occupants. Units can be connected to a wall switch or an optional occupancy sensor to ensure the LED lights only come on when there is a person present in the space.

 

Synchronized lighting

The Secondary System makes it possible to synchronize lighting in larger rooms and long corridors. Using a unique “link and light” design, it easily connects to the Primary System without the need for a new electrical connection, allowing the two Smart LED Systems to operate in tandem.

Roof Mount Options

Regardless of the particular roof type or deck material you use, Solatube products have a roof mount option designed to meet your needs and ensure leakproof installation.

No Pitch Flashing

• Designed for flat and low slope roofs with pitches of 3:12 or less

• Seamless, one-piece steel construction prevents leaks by eliminating weak points that may separate  and allow water to enter

• Available in 4 in. (100 mm) or 6 in. (150 mm) heights

• Use 6 in. (150 mm) for areas prone to heavy snow loads

Roof Mount Options

Regardless of the particular roof type or deck material you use, Solatube products have a roof mount option designed to meet your needs and ensure leakproof installation.

Pitched Flashing

• Designed for roofs with a slope of 4:12 and steeper

• Seamless, one-piece steel construction prevents leaks by eliminating weak points that may separate  and allow water to enter

• Provides a horizontal opening on a sloped roof

Daylight Dimmer

At times, it may be necessary to reduce the amount of daylight in a space—during a presentation, for instance. The optional Daylight Dimmer uses a patented butterfly baffle design to ensure even light distribution in any position. A convenient wall-mounted switch (sold separately) allows for simple and easy adjustments to room daylight illumination levels anywhere from 2% to 100%. 

Occupancy Sensor

If you thought the Solatube Smart LED System couldn’t get any smarter, think again. The optional Occupancy Sensor maximizes energy efficiency by preventing the LEDs from triggering unless an under lit area is occupied. If movement is present when light levels are low, the Occupancy Sensor will allow the LEDs to activate. If not, they remain dormant.  Once on, the system continues to assess light levels and will turn off the LEDs automatically when enough daylight is present or when the area is no longer occupied. The Occupancy Sensor must be installed within 10 ft of the Smart LED Primary System, which can be linked to a Smart LED Secondary System so two units can operate synchronously. Building owners will save on electricity and never have to worry about the lights getting left on. It’s a smart solution to further reduce energy costs for spaces that get occasional traffic—like restrooms, corridors, and storage rooms. 

Spectralight® Infinity Extension Tube

Extension tubes can be added in increments of 24 in. (600 mm) to extend tube runs to the desired length without sacrificing performance. Our unique telescoping tubing system allows for easy adustment int he field so tubing rarely has t be cut. Spectralight Infinity Tubing has the highest reflectivity in the world, making it possible to create extensive tube runs up to 30 ft (9 m).

Spectralight® Infinity 0-90 Degree Angle Adapter

Provides superior performance that flexible tubes can’t match. An innovative design with three built-in 0-30 degree angle adapters that allow you to create a full 90 degree turn. Gives you the flexibility to install around obstacles and bring daylight deep into the interior of lower floors. Due to the high reflectivity of Spectralight Infinity Tubing, there is only a 5% light loss for each ful 90 degree turn. Available in 23 in. (580 mm) length.

Flashing Insulator

This insulating material helps to improve thermal performance and reduce condensation between the tubing and flashing in cold climates. The insulator is affixed to the flashing base prior to installation and hugs the top tube as it slips through the opening in the roof deck, providing a seal between the interior and metal flashing.

Flashing Turret Extensions

Use to raise the height of the Solatube dome on a roof to avoid snow, water, or shading. Order additional Spectralight® Infinity Tubing to accommodate turret height. Available in 2 in. (50 mm), 4 in. (100 mm), 12 in. (300 mm), 24 in. (600 mm), 36 in. (900 mm) and 48 in. (1200 mm) sizes.

*It is recommended that you order Spectrlight Infinity 0-90 degree Angle Adapters if using turret extensions of 12 in. or higher.
