Better quality white light as compared to RGB. RGBW luminaires add a separate white LED that creates better-quality whites than possible with traditional RGB.


Expanded color range of warmer tones - gold, yellow, and orange, as compared to RGB. RGBA luminaires add a separate amber LED that expands the available range of colors.


Standard option for intensely saturated color light.

iW (IntelliWhite)

Tunable white-light LED luminaires offer a range of color temperatures that can be varied on the fly with lighting controllers. iW luminaires typical range from 2700 K to 6500 K.

Tunable white light is ideal for illuminating changing retail displays, for altering the mood of a public space (with different morning, evening, and overnight lighting schemes, for example), and for theatrical or studio applications that call for varying levels and shades of white light.

eW (Essential White)

White light in a single color temperature, such as 2200 K, 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K, 4000 K, or 6500 K.

LEDs cover a wide range of color temperatures that approximate the color temperatures of many non-LED lighting sources including daylight.

Particular color temperatures, from warm to neutral to cool, are associated with certain light sources and environments. Color temperature also alters the emotional effect of a space and can dramatically affect the appearance of objects on display in stores, galleries, and museums.
