The connected lighting system will also include more than 650 Color Kinetics outdoor architectural lighting fixtures, including the ColorGraze MX4 Powercore, ColorBlast Powercore gen4, and ColorReach Powercore gen2. These fixtures have been specially designed to meet the extreme vibration, temperature and corrosive environment conditions that the bridge is exposed to. The connected luminaires offer an expanded palette with millions of intensely saturated colors or finely tuned pastels and hues in a variety of beam angles in order to accentuate the design and multiple facets of the bridge. These capabilities also allow the LED lights to produce hundreds of possible configurations and light distribution patterns to create static displays or dynamic color shows that can be used to capture the imagination of local residents and inspire millions of visitors.
“LED lighting is having a transformative effect on cities that reaches far beyond the purpose of simply providing light. Public lighting installations like the I-35 Bridge can also contribute to the socioeconomic prosperity of a region, its local businesses and its citizens,” said Roger Karner, head of Market US at Signify. “The light shows planned around the big game represent a unique opportunity for Minnesota to help capture the imagination of more than 100,000,000 people from around the world.”
