Tridonic at Light+Building - LED Systems Ready for Take-Off

The potential of semiconductor light sources can be fully exploited if all the necessary components are perfectly matched to one another and to the particular application. At Light+Building Tridonic is showcasing LED system components as complete solutions for a wide range of sectors. Continual increases in luminous efficacy, constant improvements in brightness and high quality of light all make LEDs ideal for demanding applications on the professional lighting market. As the number and type of applications continues to grow so too do the requirements placed on LED light sources and associated systems. The market demands complete and reliable lighting solutions. The optical, electronic and mechanical components must be absolutely right as well as the thermal management system so that LED lighting solutions can permanently provide light of the required quality.

Combining LED modules and converters to suit requirements:
Tridonic LED solutions comprise LED modules in various forms, LED converters with different features, components for emergency lighting, and light control systems. This extensive portfolio of components can be used in many different combinations. An LED module, associated converter and connecting cable are all that are needed to create a perfectly matched system, the LED light engine. As the heart of any luminaire it provides the required lumen values throughout its entire life, with high quality of light and maximum efficiency. A colour rendering index (CRI) in excess of 80 – even 90 or more depending on the light engine – and only small colour tolerances corresponding to MacAdam 3 (MacAdam 2 as an option) add up to high quality of light from the LED modules with a homogenous white appearance.

Tunable White – flexible light:
White light is available as standard in the normalised colour temperatures of 3000 K and 4000 K or as Tunable White (new for LLE) – a white light that can be flexibly adjusted from 3000 to 6000 K. This means that it is possible to simulate changes in natural daylight throughout the day, and this can give people a greater sense of well-being and boost productivity. This is of great benefit not only in offices and educational establishments but also in health care facilities.

Special spectrums for application-specific light:
A whole range of application-specific LED solutions is available for the exhibition, display and retail sectors. Spotlights and downlights in full-spectrum technology (ART) achieve the remarkable CRI value of 98 so that works of art can be viewed in natural light. The fashion industry in particular is benefiting from specially combined spectrums (FASHION). Brilliant white clothing looks radiant, without the usual yellow tinge.

Compact size for freedom of design:
Economical single-component solutions which do not need an external converter provide the basis for extremely sleek luminaire designs, giving designers enormous freedom. The round version can replace DD compact fluorescent lamps and T5 lamps. There is another version available for use in downlights.

Simply DALI:
A new group controller bridges the gap between simple lighting control and extended DALI functionality. It offers interfaces for ambient light and presence sensors and for up to 20 DALI/DSI devices. These control units can communicate with one another and forward presence information. A DALI address can be assigned to each control unit via the integrated DALI interface so that group switching and group feedback are possible.

OLED modules for professional applications:

The initial impressions of OLED modules are that they have extremely low profiles, weigh very little and seem to be floating. They all emit a pleasant, diffused, white area light which does not dazzle from any viewing angle. All the versions, including the flexible version which will be launched in 2015, offer excellent colour rendering. The colour rendering index CRI is > 80, and in some cases > 90. The high quality of light is also evidenced by the small colour tolerances (MacAdam 4) and the minimal colour angle shift of x, y ≤ 0.005. The specific light emittance is remarkable, measuring as much as 12,000 lm/m² for all modules.
