Category Winner 

TruBlu Bluetooth mesh Fixture Controller with Long Range Antenna: Technical Innovation Award 

The TruBlu Bluetooth mesh Fixture Controller with Long Range Antenna offers flexible yet powerful networked lighting control outdoors. Since hardwiring is cost-prohibitive for outdoor applications, the introduction of a long-range (900ft) Bluetooth mesh wireless controller that can be integrated directly into a wide range of commercially available fixtures eliminates “range anxiety.” Together with features like continuous dimming, DLC certification, zone and luminaire level lighting control options, this controller enables cost-effective Bluetooth mesh control for outdoor lighting. 


Design Excellence Award: 

Edison Price Lighting

Easy-Link: Design Excellence Award 

Edison Price introduces EasyLink - a modular linear lighting system with a quick connector for ease of installation in any configuration. The socket rotates from downlight to uplight or any angle in-between. Linear sections can be assembled with in-line, T, X, and U connectors for limitless possibilities. Honeycomb or louvered baffles reduce glare while providing light output up to 2900 lumens in a 4' section. Easy-Link can be suspended, or mounted on walls or ceilings, attached to tables or floor mounted with a weighted base.

Judges’ Citation Award: 

Gripple, Inc. 

Category Winner 

CombiCable: Judges’ Citation Award 

CombiCable by Gripple, is a combined power and suspension pendant system. It enhances luminaire aesthetics, eliminating the need for zip ties to secure aircraft cable to the power cord after installation. Our innovative end-to-end system easily installs into a 7/8” knockout on the fixture and connects directly into a conduit box via the supplied crossbar and low-profile canopy. The mechanical support from the aircraft cable allows both hands to terminate the conductors, improving health and safety.
