At ISE 2023, KSCAPE announced it will present a new model of RAIL with a complete ‘plug-and-play’ lighting/audio audio solution via Casambi Smart Lighting control. The Casambi solution is based on the state-of-the-art wireless technology, Bluetooth Low Energy. Through the use of Bluetooth Low Energy KSCAPE boasts that its latest lighting solution creates an optimal solution in terms of ease of installation and functionality with minimal additional hardware and deployment costs.
On top of Bluetooth Low Energy, KSCAPE explains the Casambi technology provides a mesh network where it replicates all the intelligence of the system in every node, a statement notes.
With RAIL, the Italian company says that users will be able to control all their lighting needs through Casambi’s easy-to-use app with a smart user interface or with DALI. Casambi can connect seamlessly into the internal smart-building automation system such as Crestron, Lutron or Control 4 via a remote gateway.
Additionally, with RAIL, KSCAPE emphasizes that it can now provide a choice of ‘plug-and-play’ light and audio solutions that when combined with the new K-array KA-04 amplifier that delivers 4 x 150-watts channels at 4 ohms, the KA14 or the KA28 are capable of providing high quality sound via cloud technology.
Some of the other options available via Casambi include the ability for the new RAIL Lighting/Audio solution to offer tunable white that enables designers to significantly improve interior environments such as offices, residential and commercial. Moreover, light can be automated to follow the natural circadian patterns of daylight. This is possible with the help of dynamic LEDs that can illuminate from 2700K to 5000K. Thus, they can softly rise in the morning, gradually brighten to a midday peak and then dip down to a warm glow in the evening.
According to a statement, programming light levels in such a way have proven to bolster employee attentiveness, productivity and even physical well-being. Tunable white also enables forward-thinking companies to lean into these findings and demonstrate their commitment to creating a healthy, happy workplace while avoiding costly and time-consuming retrofits and other types of installations.
Finally, KSCAPE adds the RAIL Lighting/Audio family can be combined with other K-array technologies provide a simple solution for designers who face new challenges where audio and light are essential to the project.
The K-array group is manufacturer of pro-audio solutions comprising three brands, K-array, KSCAPE and KGEAR, with global headquarters in Florence, Italy.
