LED Light for Every Retail Space

Vossloh-Schwabe's new built-in LED system for retail lighting. The VS system consists of LED modules of various outputs and colour temperatures, matching electronic ballasts and further accessories such as graphite film for optimum thermal connection of cables or connecting active 12 V cooling components. VS also provides DALI-compliant, dimmable ballasts. The LED system is suitable for use in reflector luminaires in a broad range of applications. Apart from guaranteeing a very long service life, the LED system also delivers UV- and IR-free light with good CRI values.

Vossloh-Schwabe’s new built-in LED system for retail lighting. LED technology delivers many advantages:

  • Instantaneous light: no delay on being switched on nor a warm-up phase following disconnection from the mains
  • Gentle on products: UV- and IR-free
  • Longer lamp service life: up to 50,000 hours
  • Easily dimmable for fast changes of lighting scenes
  • Colour temperatures to suit every product group: clothing, meat, sausages, cold cuts, fish, vegetables, etc.
  • True-colour displays: excellent CRI values to suit the product type
  • Negligible drop in luminous flux during the lamp’s service life, removing the need to replace lamps
  • Extremely energy-efficient
  • Simple luminaire construction with maximum safety guaranteed by safety extra-low voltage (SELV)

LED module’s performance is not just restricted to retail lighting. For instance, the system is equally suitable for use in reflector luminaires, flat downlights, façade lighting and pendant luminaires in which the LED driver is not integrated into the LED module, but is installed in a separate unit. This makes the LED module suitable for the most diverse applications, including domestic lighting.

 

Highly versatile to suit any application

Powered by constant current, the LED module at the heart of the LED module system is available in three array versions with 12 to 16 high-performance LEDs and various colour temperatures (2700 K to 4000 K). In addition, the compact module is very flat and measures only 50 mm or 56 mm in diameter.

Simple installation and slim-line luminaire designs

The lamp’s low installation depth and flat geometry enable very slim-line luminaire designs since the module can be mounted directly on top of heat-dissipating surfaces.

One luminaire design to suit various lighting needs

Featuring a single internal structure and identical dimensions for easy module exchange within the luminaire, LED module is available in various colour temperatures. As a result, lighting can be easily tailored to suit the respective application (food/non-food).

Independent control gear for luminaires with remote technology

Independent control gear makes it possible to use greater cable lengths between the driver and the LED module, thus enabling smaller, slimmer luminaire designs with remote technology.

Highest operating safety

LED module is operated using safety extra-low voltage (SELV). Fewer measures are therefore required to ensure protection against accidental contact and compliance with relevant standards for simpler luminaire construction.

Highest degree of thermal safety

Thermal protection circuitry ensures the operating current is reduced should the temperature at the tc point attain a critical value.

In addition, modules 404 and 405 are fitted with a temperature-controlled output to connect a 12 V fan. The connecting cable from the LED module to the fan is fitted with a plug for the module. A heat-dissipating graphite foil with minimal thermal resistance enables thermally optimised connection of a heat sink to an LED module.

Reduction of Failure Rate

Optimised heat dissipation and thermal protection circuitry ensure components are subjected to less thermal stress, which minimises the failure rate and prolongs the service life of the module.

Convenient and fast wiring

The 12 V interface for active cooling components facilitates fast and easy connection.

Superior mechanical stability

LED module is shock- and vibration-resistant. Three mounting points in the form of metal bushings permit safe and reliable mounting of the module, with the components ideally protected by the plastic casing. In addition, the metal bushings enable optimum connection of a heat sink.

Made for ease of use

LED module is fitted both with push-in terminals for releasable connecting cables and with an integrated 12 V interface for connecting external cooling units (LED module 404 and 405).

Installation- and user-friendly

Push-in terminals make installing and exchanging modules considerably faster and easier.

Tested for safety

LED module is VDE-certified in accordance with EN 62031, the relevant safety standard for LED modules.

Simplification of the luminaire approval process

Considerably easier luminaire approval in accordance with EN 60598.

Safe operation thanks to electronic drivers made by Vossloh-Schwabe

Provided with either a compact plastic or metal casing, VS’ electronic LED drivers ensure the respective LED module is supplied with the correct operating current of either 700 mA or 1050 mA. These LED drivers feature high-quality components and are available in standard and dimmable (DALI) versions.

VS’ LED control gear is suitable for emergency power operation

In addition, the control gear units can also be powered using direct current. In the event of an electricity cut, a battery can therefore be used to temporarily power the lighting system.
