After three years of research and development, Q-Tran introduces Q-Scape, the first power system infrastructure invented and engineered specifically for landscape lighting applications. Q-Tran is the industry leader of high-performance power supply systems and transformers for low voltage and LED lighting.
A completely thorough system of 217 originally designed components, Q-Scape includes everything from the fixture to the home or
building-- offering flexibility, ease of installation, exceptional industrial design, high performance, low maintenance and long life. The versatile system is UL listed for three different applications: landscape lighting (UL1838); pool & spa lighting (including water fountains); and low voltage luminaire power supply (UL2108) for both indoor and outdoor lighting.
Designed for scalability, the package accommodates additional Q-Set transformers (for energy efficient low voltage halogen) and Q-Set drivers (for even more energy efficient LED lighting), to provide higher wattage as the landscaping project, and its luminaire configuration, grows. Individual transformer cassettes within the housing offer tremendous flexibility for maintenance personnel. Two highlights of the system, the Q-Vault housing and the Q-Set transformer cassettes, received Lightfair International's highest accolades by winning Innovation Awards for Best Landscape Lighting Products, and Best Overall Product Design from 187 entries.
To ensure complete water tightness, Q-Vault was engineered and crafted with a compression molded epoxy composite to meet stringent IP68 standards, an international protection rating that certifies operation during continuous immersion in water. All of Q-Vault's entry points had to be completely sealed, including a robust, 1/3-inch thick door gasket, which has been tightly sealed and highly compressed to approach the strict standards of a marine hatch. NPT (National Pipe Taper) knockouts were designed to accept the new Q-Clik compression fittings or a conduit.
Fifteen years ago, Q-Tran, Inc. was founded by John Tremaine. Today the firm is a leading manufacturer and designer of power supply centers and transformers for low voltage and LED lighting systems. Mr. Tremaine, who has been involved in the industry since 1970, is an accomplished lighting designer who was born into a family of lighting entrepreneurs, manufacturers and innovators that have been involved in the lighting industry for seven decades. Q-Tran was established in as a source for remote transformers that eliminated noise and heat, significantly improving performance to enhance the quality of light.
Over the years, Gean Tremaine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and Jordan Nodelman, Vice President of Operations, would take their place by their father's side, helping to build Q-Tran as a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality, power supply systems, transformers and components.
At the 2008 Lightfair International, Q-Tran's Q-Set transformer cassettes and Q-Vault housing received the show's highest accolades by winning Innovation Awards for Best Landscape Lighting Products, and Best Overall Product Design from 187 entries.
Operating with the mantra â€œEnlightenedThinkingÂ®,â€ John and his firm has pioneered innovative transformers with improved safety, reliability, performance and convenience. He developed the first power supply center designed specifically for low voltage lighting 15 years ago.
Q-Tran power supply products are significantly more energy efficient than all other magnetic and electronic transformers available in the industry. With energy costs rising, energy efficient power supplies have a dramatic impact on projects by lowering operating costs and improving light output at the same time. It's a win-win situation.
