Smart Tool LED Software
Metrolight’s Smart Tool LED is a revolutionary software suite designed to aid OEMs throughout their LED fixtures product life cycle. Combined with Metrolight’s high power LED drivers, the software addresses the three key elements of LED fixtures PLC: Design, Testing and Production.

The design window offers full programmability of the LED driver and adaptability to the LED fixture:
- Optimization wizard: optimizes and recommends LED array layouts that offer the highest efficiency Parameters: number of LEDs, current, voltage, power, dimming: level, range and fade times.
- Readings: power, current, voltage in and out, analog and digital dimming, driver address, Tc, Max Tc, driver status, alarms and number of ignitions.
- Graphs: real time presentation of, power, voltage, current, temperature, and Tc.
LED Array optimization
Automatic scheduled controlled dimming that eliminates the need for any type of external control. SmartDIM calculates the midpoint (the center time point between the time the fixture is turned on and the time the fixture is turned off) and dims the fixture to the desired power level one hour prior to the midpoint.
As the fixture design progresses, the need to test it internally arises. Such tests include environmental and functional. The testing window allows the creation of set of commands macros aimed at allowing fully automated operation of the fixture while being tested:
- Dim light to
- Increase light to
The testing procedure also shows a power consumption graph that updates in real-time according to the macro commands.
The production window offers a simple and easy way to reconfigure Metrolight’s LED drivers. The tool can be used after the design and testing phases are complete, to configure multiple drivers to the new settings. The tool can be also used to reconfigure drivers in stock that require new or
updated parameters. Using a barcode reader, the driver’s serial number, address and part number
are read. The software than backups the existing parameters, loads and verifies the new parameters. A new label is than printed representing the updated driver.
