EMTEQ Achieves Record Installs

New Berlin, Wis., USA – Introduced in October of 2012, EMTEQ's QUASAR II Full Spectrum Mood Lighting System is successfully setting the mood having shipped and installed over 5000 feet over 2013 and 2014. QUASAR II brings vivid colors and dynamic scenes to the business aviation market through advanced technology allowing for simpler installation. The lower cost of QUASAR II is making mood lighting more attainable for business aircraft. Recent installations include several Bombardier Global aircraft as well as Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft.

"EMTEQ's QUASAR mood lighting was a first in the industry in 2006 – but we have recently been seeing a shift in the market with a lot more interest to install mood lighting," said Kariann Thon, EMTEQ's Corporate Business Development Manager. "QUASAR mood lighting is a step further than LED lighting and makes the cabin uniquely theirs."

EMTEQ's QUASAR II system is a 115VAC system designed with EMTEQ's Cabin Logic Network Protocol (CLNP). This built in logic simplifies installation eliminating the need for external power supplies and control boxes. This smart lighting system easily integrates with Cabin Management Systems and has been integrated with Rockwell Collins, PGA, CCC, and IDAir and is currently being integrated with Flight Displays and Honeywell. It has also be installed with EMTEQ's eConnect™ system acting as a lighting controller in place of integrating into a CMS system.

The advanced design of QUASAR II with two inch node resolution, allows it to create highly customizable scenes with dynamic colors and intensity levels. EMTEQ has completed several installations including complex scenes unique to individual customers. These scenes take mood lighting to the next level adding to the ambience in the cabin.
