BBS Lighting Introduces LED Remote Phosphor Bank Lights

BBS Lighting has married its LED technology into a new form factor — the Bank LED Remote Phosphor light system.

BBS Lighting said bank systems have long been popular due to their versatility and convenient form factor. However, the company improved on the classic light bank by adding the benefits of Remote Phosphor technology in the Pipeline 4-Bank in three and four foot models.

By incorporating Remote Phosphor technology in the new 4-Banks, the fixtures deliver a 95+ TLCI (Television Lighting Consistency Index). With traditional LEDs, color output begins to drift over time due to heat damage to the phosphor layer doped directly on the bulbs.

Remote Phosphor Pipes feature a phosphor layer positioned away from the LEDs so they remain brighter with higher fidelity and a consistently high TLCI over years of use. The Banks are rated at 50,000 hours, so the hassles of lamp changes are not an issue.

Pipeline cylindrical Pipes each have a rugged aluminum flat channel with 1/10th-inch thick remote phosphor covering to handle rough treatment without breakage.

Pipeline 4-Banks house three or four feet long, one-inch diameter LED Pipes that provide light emission of over 1000 lumens per foot (12,000 lumens from the three foot and 16000 lumens from the four foot model). They are cool running and power off of a 48 volt power supply to provide smooth dimming all the way down to zero.

Utilizing the built-in four-channel control, Pipeline Banks are fully dimmable (100 percent to zero) without color shift or flicker. The control offers 8- or 16-bit DMX and manual dimming plus unique strobe capability.

Pipeline 4-Banks come in 3200 degree K, 4300 degree K or 5600 degree K color temperatures. A Bi-Color model allows the user to dial in any color temperature between 3200 and 5600 degree K.

For additional control, a foil-lined softbox and light grids are available for the Pipeline 4-banks. The banks are stackable for greater combined output.

The three foot model 4-banks has a list price under $2,000 while four foot model is priced under $2,500.
