1. Ease Of Installation (All Models)
Flexible change-of-beam angles are included for late design changes and on-site adjustments. A smart mounting plate design offers a variety of standard or custom bracket solutions.

2. Smart Infrastructure (All Models)
Fixtures are DMX-controllable and easy to install due to their integrated universal power supply. They can also be daisy-chained using a combined power and data connector, which enables long fixture runs for simpler infrastructures.

3. Efficient Operation (All Models)
With more than 50 lm/W(QUAD) and 60 lm/W(CTC), Exterior Linear Pro fixtures are highly efficient. Multiple power modes (12W/10W/5W, including ASHRAE compliance) can be set via Remote Device Management (RDM) to reduce power consumption as needed.

4. Superior Temperature Control (CTC Models)
Cold, neutral, and warm LEDs are included for precise color temperature control from 2700-6500K at high efficacy with 12 LEDs per foot. They also feature a high color rendering index (CRI) covering the entire color temperature spectrum.

5. Granular Lighting Control (QUAD Models)
An integrated 6-inch (15 cm) segment mode enables more granular lighting control for organic and subtle looks.

6. Sophisticated Color Control (QUAD Models)
QUAD color fixtures include logic RGB control of the RGBW engine, making it easier to mix colors when the white color is automatically calculated. Factory calibration of colors offers superior consistency and user-selectable default color temperature with the ability to set a favorite default color temperature. Fine segment control is also included for more organic and subtle color transitions.

7. Premixed Colors with Color Boost (QUAD Models)
QUAD color LEDs deliver an enhanced visual appearance with homogenous color mixing and high lumen output of mixed colors. A color boosting feature is also included for full powered illumination of a single color or mixed colors, making them up to three times brighter than comparable fixtures yet boasting lower total power consumption.
