Lumishore partners with Simrad on lighting controls


Lumishore said in a statement it has partnered with Simrad and B&G for its onboard LED lighting systems. The U.K. manufacturer said its LED lighting solutions can be controlled through the latest Simrad NSO and NSS evo3 and select GO series as well as B&G Zeus3 Glass Helm, Zeus3 and Vulcan multifunction navigational displays.

“Sailors, cruisers and offshore anglers can set the mood instantly, right from their display,” said Eifrion Evans, CEO of Lumishore in the statement. “Whether you are trying to break up the monotony of a long passage or using underwater LEDs to attract fish to put on the table, our control panel puts total lighting control right at the tip of your fingers.”

The new interface panel allows control of Lumishore’s underwater and recently released Smart Lighting products. The interface panel has a palette wheel for color selection and a horizontal slide bar for quick adjustments to lighting intensity.

Evans said the controls give users the ability to select “an infinite number of hues and intensities across the entire boat or in individual zones.” The control system has optional presets and pre-programmed effects like strobe, sweep, cycle or a “sound-to-light” mode that pulses lights to the beat of any song playing on the display’s built-in media player.

“We believe the best products are not just the best designed, but also easiest to use,” said Evans, citing the intuitive nature of the controls.
