LED Linear Accent Lighting

C3S Serpentine LED linear accent lighting produces uniform illumination designed to accent and highlight spaces featuring curves and corners, such as small coves, under cabinets or millwork. C3S features multi-axis flexibility with over 270° surface plane rotation. C3S delivers 100/200/335 lumens/ft based on 1.0/2.0/3.3 Watt/ft selection.

C3S light fixtures are available in section lengths up to 8ft (in 1ft increments) and may be joined in the field for long continuous runs. Rigid C3R may be connected to Tempo’s serpentine C3S providing an elegant solution for combined curved and straight-run applications.

Each 3in C3S module is micro-maintainable, solving one of the biggest limitations of tape light and rope light. Should an LED board fail, there is no need to replace the entire run, simply replace the 3in LED board.

Designed with modular CLiP® (Configurable Lighting Platform), C3S provides architectural lighting solutions to suit multiple application requirements. For example, standard module spacing is 3in (end to end) but Tempo can increase the spacing for budget sensitive projects. Consult the factory for increased spacing options.

Tempo offers pre-configured C3S LiteReel Kits that include 30 continuous feet of C3S, a power supply and power feed cable. For more information, see the C3S LiteReel Kit brochure under resources, below.
