Minebea Receives LFI 2016 Innovation Award for SALIOT


Minebea Co., Ltd., has been awarded the LFI 2016 Innovation Award under the category of Track Display Undercabinet and Shelf.  Minebea was presented with this award at the world’s largest annual architectural and tradeshow conference and exhibition, LFI 2016, which took place in San Diego, California.

“As a first time exhibitor at LFI, Minebea is proud to have been recognized with an Innovation Award for SALIOT.   This product represents the advances in technology that the lighting industry is looking for, and it validates Minebea’s entry into this market.” commented Yoshihisa Kainuma, Representative Director, President and Chief Executive Officer of Minebea.

The SALIOT (Smart Adjustable Light for the Internet Of Things) is an exceptional product.    A smart light that uses a smartphone based app which provides one touch control to adjust the angle, pan, tilt, dimming intensity and zoom of the light.  With a Bluetooth network technology that enables extended range for up to 100 lights, this is the ideal product for applications such as museums, galleries, auto dealerships and high end retail spaces.  The SALIOT not only moves, pans and tilts, but it focuses the lens with the aid of Minebea’s own internal small motors and components. This is made possible by an industry first function enabling the light distribution angle (the angle at which light spreads) to be changed from 10° to 30°, as desired.
