Lutron Rebrands High-End LED Drivers; Debuts $250 Premier Hi-lume 0.1%

Lutron’s $250 Hi-lume Premier 0.1% constant voltage driver for commercial LED lighting is part of rebranded three-tiered high-end family under the Hi-lume name.


Lutron Electronics has launched the Hi-Lume Premier 0.1% constant voltage driver, an LED driver with smooth, flicker-free 0.1 percent dimming and Soft-on, Fade-to-Black.

Featuring wired and wireless control options, the driver offers easy setup in both residential and commercial retrofit applications. The launch of the Hi-lume Premier 0.1% driver coincides with the re-branding of Lutron’s three-tiered family of LED drivers under the Hi-lume name.

Hi-lume Premier 0.1%

The new Hi-lume Premier 0.1% 96W constant voltage LED driver enables customers to no longer have to sacrifice the dimming performance equivalent to incandescent lighting. Targeted for for theaters, restaurants, kitchens and architectural spaces with lit coves and soffits, the Hi-Lume Premier 0.1% eliminates any perceived “blink on” or drop out.

Listed at $250, Hi-lume Premier 0.1% is also flexible and easy to set up. The dimming performance is optimized when it is paired with Lutron Lumaris Linear Lighting. Customers can also pair it with any constant voltage LED strip or tape lighting. The driver comes with wireless remote mounting options and doesn’t require rewiring or breaking into walls.

“Hi-lume Premier 0.1% takes LED dimming firmly into a space where customers will no longer be able to distinguish its dimming performance from that of incandescent lighting,” shared Eric Lind, vice president of global specifications. “Hi-lume Premier 0.1% proves that, when it comes to beautiful LED dimming, Lutron is the name specifiers, architects, designers, contractors and distributors should trust.”

Re-branded Lutron Drivers Under Hi-lume

With the launch of Hi-lume Premier 0.1%, Lutron introduces its three “top tier” LED drivers—5 Series, Hi-lume 1% and the Hi-lume Premier 0.1%.

“As our family of drivers continues to grow in both size and popularity, we recognized that we had an opportunity to demystify driver selection. Creating 3 distinct product tiers allows specifiers to easily understand the available options, connect the dots between the controls and fixtures, and ultimately write a crisp spec that guarantees they will get what they expect on the job,” said Lind. “With our new branded tiers and easy-to-use tools, specifiers just need to select the tier, the dimming level and the control method they desire to confidently bring the power of Lutron dimming into their space.”
