Lighting control specialist Pharos Architectural Controls is celebrating after its Expert solution was named as an Honoree in LEDs Magazine 2023 BrightStar Awards. The 2023 edition marks the second instalment of the BrightStar Awards, and it is also the second year running that Pharos has secured a win, after Pharos Cloud was named as an Honoree in 2022.
This awards program recognises ingenuity in commercial product offerings across the LED and solid-state lighting supply chain, as determined by a panel of industry experts in design, manufacturing, and market development.
Pharos Expert, chosen as Honoree in the ‘Connected SSL, Software & Controls’ category, offers an all-new, practical, and straightforward control solution centred around a single, reliable set-and-forget controller. Expert embodies the benefit of Pharos expertise in dynamic architectural lighting with a solution for every project, providing effortless control of decorative and functional lighting whilst bringing artistic and dynamic control to any design.
With DMX, DALI and a couple of convenient contact closures and relays on board, Expert Control provides up to 1024 channels – ideal for architectural lighting that requires the benefits of dynamic movement and colour in a cost effective and practical package.
The Expert solution also includes a companion 5″ touchscreen; the elegant Expert Touch, and completing the range are two matching accessories; Expert Repeat, a DMX splitter for output distribution, and Expert Switch for PoE networking.
Each BrightStar Awards entry is evaluated across several criteria including energy efficiency and the role the solution plays in advancing new or existing applications. A team of judges have worked together to determine the overall score when marked against the set criteria.
The BrightStar Awards trophy was hand delivered to Pharos on booth 1769 at LightFair. Simon Hicks, Pharos CEO, was later interviewed by LEDs Magazine to get his insight into what makes Expert so unique. Visitors to the LightFair booth were able to explore and interact with Expert, with members of the US team on hand to provide demonstrations.
Jack Neill, Senior Product Manager for Expert, commented: “We are incredibly proud of our control solutions, and it is wonderful to see Pharos recognised by peers and renowned professionals across the industry. This recognition pays tribute to the hard work of so many people in making Expert a reality. For simple and sophisticated control – Expert makes light of it.”
