Illuminating Engineering Society Accepts STENOS™ Micro Linear Track and Downlight Systems in 2021 IES Progress Report

The recognition affirms STENOS’ status as a pioneering micro linear track and downlight system engineered with industry-leading technological advancements. In addition to being the smallest track and downlight system available, it produces the highest efficacy of any micro linear directional product in the market. 

Niles, Ill.—August 13, 2021—Luminii, a Chicago-based manufacturer of specification-grade architectural LED lighting systems, today announced the acceptance of the company’s STENOS micro linear platform in the prestigious 2021 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report. The recognition affirms STENOS’ status as a pioneering micro linear track and downlight system engineered with industry-leading technological advancements.

Launched in April 2021, STENOS is the smallest track (27mm H x 21 mm W) and downlight system in the market, delivering more than 1,000 aimable lumens per linear foot. 

Beyond its small, flexible profile, the architectural grade micro linear track and downlight systems also produce the highest efficacy of any micro linear directional product in the market, delivering 96 lumens per Watt and a CRI value exceeding 90. 

STENOS’ uniquely small size, high efficacy, and superior optics are redefining the notion of micro linear track and downlight products, enabling lighting design and architecture professionals to illuminate a wide variety of applications with flexibility and ease. These design and technological advancements contributed to the system’s inclusion in the 2021 IES Progress Report. 

Every year, the IES Progress Committee recognizes lighting manufacturers and their new products, research, publications, and other activities. The committee is mandated to “keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world, and prepare a yearly review of achievements for the Illuminating Engineering Society,” according to the IES’ website.

“STENOS has established Luminii as the market leader for micro linear track and downlight systems, as evidenced by its inclusion in the 2021 IES Progress Report,” said Jeff Parker, CEO of Luminii. “The system’s new and proprietary micro-optics engine designed around the latest LED technology, a Titanium Dioxide Chip Scale Package LED, has carved a new space for micro linear products in the simplest — and most complex — of applications. We are grateful for the IES’ support, and we look forward to building on this momentum as we continue developing game-changing lighting technologies.”

STENOS Track

Available in both a surface and recessed option, the STENOS Track system features an immaculate circular beam quality from a one-of-a-kind micro linear form factor. The STENOS ambient and directional modules seat flush in the track system creating a seamless architectural effect and deliver up to 1200 lumens per foot. The modules feature endless flexibility and can be added, removed, and repositioned with ease using simple tools. Additionally, STENOS Track is field cuttable and features an array of easy to install joiners while its two-circuit track enables a straightforward set-up of two separately controllable zones. Simply remove, rotate, and re-insert the module to change the circuit.

STENOS Downlight

The STENOS architecturally–designed Downlight portfolio is uniquely small, consisting of three (3”, 5”, 12”) discreet micro-linear downlight options, producing an output range of 250-1260 lumens.  All options feature perfect beam quality featuring a +/- 30º aimable tilt, and beam shaping accessories providing a wide range of flexibility for any project. STENOS downlights are field configurable, featuring a constant voltage design that enables multiple fixtures to operate from a single power supply, resulting in a simplified installation and overall cost savings.
