Tridonic's New LED-engine for Wide-Are Lighting Provides Higher Module Efficiency

Twenty percent more light output and even better lighting quality (MacAdam 3) characterise the second generation of TALEXXengine STARK QLE and LLE LED systems. Module efficiency is now as high as 135 lm/W.

Tridonic introduced those LED engines for general illumination successfully in the beginning of 2012. These square (QLE) and linear (LLE) versions can be used separately or in combination. They open up new options for luminaire designers and can be used as alternatives to T5, T8 and TCL fluorescent lamps. The square version is perfect for area luminaires and long-run luminaires, and the linear version is ideal for creating clear lines of light. All versions will fit a wide variety of lighting systems, from diffusers to louvre luminaires. Tridonic has optimised the modules continuously and offers from November on the second generation with clearly higher efficiency.

The LED module has an operating current of just 300 mA and is now capable of achieving a luminous flux that previously required 350 mA. Condition: change to identical control gear with reduced output current. This reduces the power consumption of the luminaire by 20%. If one continues to run the LED module with an operating current of 350 mA as before, luminous flux increases by 13%, while the luminaire's power consumption remains constant.

Further-on Tridonic offers added integrated emergency lighting functions with TALEXXengine STARK QLE and STARK LLE. The LED modules are either equipped with additional LEDs for emergency lighting or are dimmed in emergency lighting mode. Combined with a matching control gear there is a round off LED system available.

Simple wiring and mounting
Well-proved are special terminals and cable penetrations and returns. Thus the modules can be connected to one another and to the appropriate converters easily. Four to six modules can be operated in series with just one converter. The converters, either for luminaire installation or surface mounting, are specially matched to the LED modules. There are versions available with or without integrated interfaces (DSI signal, switchDIM or DALI) and with corridorFUNCTION.
