BalancedCare™ Healthcare Lighting
A bold new approach for improved design flexibility
In a nutshell, F.L.E.X Technology™ promotes creativity, simplifies design and lowers costs for commercial lighting. F.L.E.X combines several patent-pending innovations to form an adaptable, cost-effective line‑voltage structure that delivers true building-scale solutions, layers of light anywhere you need them, integral wired or wireless control throughout, as well as energy and emergency code compliance no matter the lighting design. Axis is developing a collection of specially engineered lighting systems based on F.L.E.X Technology: StencilFlex™ is the newly released pendant version, while the recessed and surface versions are under development.
F.L.E.X Technology™ offers a building‑block approach to architectural lighting design, with interchangeable lighting elements and the ability to meet evolving needs. F.L.E.X comprises four main elements: Frameworks, Lighting inserts, Empower technology and virtually limitless design freedom. A good deal of that freedom is based on F.L.E.X line-voltage engineering.
The Framework is a streamlined, cost-effective line-voltage structure based on patent-pending IMW™ (Integral Modular Wiring) technology. Depending on lighting requirements and design intent, a F.L.E.X layout can include several frameworks, each one a neighborhood light, or it can form a single, large-scale framework with multiple neighborhoods of light.
Lighting inserts snap into framework segments and are easily wired-in using IMW™ terminals. Inserts feature Nomadic™ technology to facilitate interchangeability (assistance of certified electrician required). Each insert is equipped with an IMW rapid-wiring terminal and a mini line‑voltage driver, eliminating the need to install remote drivers.
F.L.E.X lets you fully control lighting layouts using Empower technology. This easy-to-use wireless platform leverages open‑standard design flexibility and individually controlled inserts, ensuring more freedom to create visually engaging lighting that is smart and connected.
