Changing LED's Color Temperature

Unlike traditional lights, LED light manufacturers can produce LED lights to specific color temperature values in [K]. Generally speaking, the LED’s color temperature value is not adjustable by changing the brightness intensity. Some people would immediately raise the counterexample that Warm Dimming offers a different color temperature by adjusting brightness. Since its color temperature changes along a pre-defined dimming curve, the Warm Dimming technology may only be considered an intermediate solution in practice. Our Dynamic Lighting control development project addresses the second characteristic of LED lights, which is the controllability of LED lights.

Launched in 2019, the core of our Dynamic Lighting solution consists of the DZ1G300TUNE and DZ2G300TUNE controllers. Unlike typical command-based lighting system approaches, our proprietary Dynamic Lighting solutions is based on analogue control that operates on phase dimming and 0-10V technologies. Thus, this solution can drastically lower the Dynamic Lighting applications' entry barrier and maintenance costs. Simplicity and flexibility are the keys to our solutions. Furthermore, we offer comprehensive product support, including our Solid Aluminum Alloy Faceplates and Tunable White LED Fixtures and Luminaires. Today, International Auction House, Art Gallery, Commercial, and Residential customers have adopted our controllers for both LED dimming and Dynamic Lighting applications.


Lighting systems are common to control Tunable White lighting in professional lighting projects. Since its market introduction, Smart Bulbs have been an excellent attempt to bring the applications to households. So, we can see the control methods play a significant role in shaping the applications and deciding target audiences. As both professional lighting and household segments are very mature, we want to develop something that keeps the control complexity minimal. Yet, a broad group of audiences can enjoy the benefits of vibrant lighting and find good use of the technology. To support the idea of widening the audience, we’ve designed our solutions with specific objectives in mind.

User Interface: For brightness and color temperature control, our solutions feature a dual input interface (i.e., dual rotary knobs or momentary switches). While the Dynamic Lighting Controllers have a transient switch interface, customers have great flexibility to select their preferred faceplates.

LED Driver Selection: Our solution uses dimmable LED drivers (CC) with LED+/- output terminals to power the Tunable White LED Fixtures. With the rich pool of quality single-channel dimmable drivers in the market, the support for Tunable White Fixtures is easy. Since there are no dual-channel outputs LED drivers (Cool White- and Warm White- terminals), and no complete system reset after replacement, the installation and maintenance can be kept to the simplest level. In fact, this feature has a deep impact on the overall system costs.


When simplicity is essential, we want our solution expandable to external control. In other words, our solutions can serve as the “last mile,” and customers have an option to integrate our solutions to a more extensive system.

Control Mode: Using our Tunable White Track Lights as an example, customers can realize that we can have different approaches for implementation. In the most basic form, users can adjust the light's brightness and color temperature by rotary knobs on single-phase 2-wire rail. Alternatively, we can utilize 4-wire rails and control the lights from a wall faceplate, just like regular dimmable track lights. Instead of sending digital commands over the DA+/- lines, we send a 0-10V signal over the control bus.

Furthermore, we can tie the color temperature control to a mobile APP, which gives further control options by different grouping methods. On daily application, users can adjust the brightness from the wall, similar to regular dimmable track lights. By wirelessly linking the tracks instead of individual track lights (or tunable downlights in the neighborhood), we can create a control node for multiple tunable lights as a cluster for consistent color temperature control. Further wireless grouping would create the sets as part of an extensive system by sharing the same wireless ID.

Tunable White Fixture Selection: Since we use regular dimmable LED drivers to power Tunable White LED Fixtures and with the rich types of LED chip supply, we can design many different kinds of Tunable White Fixtures from single COB downlight to dual-color LED panel light based on Constant Current driving technology.

Tunable White Fixtures Co-exist with Dimmable Lamps: Our solution allows dimmable and tunable fixtures to co-exist on the same line based on the unique approach of completely separating the brightness and color temperature control. On a dual rotary or dual toggle switch faceplate, we can adjust the brightness of Tunable and Dimmable lamps (e.g., SORAA® LED Lamps), with the additional benefit of changing the Tunable White fixtures' color temperature. This feature allows designers and end-users to install Tunable White light fixtures at designated locations while the rest of the lamps can be merely dimmable.
