Tridonic's New LED Modules Display Food, Clothing and Art in Fithful Colors

When it comes to the presentation of goods, merchandise and works of art, the right lighting helps to create a special atmosphere and to delight viewers. However, different products, materials and colors require specific lighting moods. Tridonic offers a wide range of products for special lighting tasks, with the new LED modules in the seventh-generation SLE excite (EXC) series meeting the criteria for demanding applications in food, fashion and art.

Whether it's freshly baked goods, colorful textiles or valuable works of art – Tridonic's broad portfolio of LED modules offers the right light for any object: warm, intense browns for pastry displays, rich reds for the meat counter and true-color light for the presentation of fashion collections and works of art. The light colors used display fashion, food and art in the best possible way. All the components are selected and developed in a strict qualification process. Patented phosphors optimize the interplay between efficiency and color rendering.

"The SLE G7 excite module series for spotlight applications offers our customers a wide selection of light colors which fulfill a variety of lighting tasks for presenting goods and merchandise," explains Bertrand Leplay, Product Manager Lighting Components at Tridonic. "This allows them to create varied and impressive designs in shops, exhibitions, hotels and museums."

Perfectly matched light colors for shops, retail areas and galleries

Individual color temperatures allow for food to be displayed to best effect. The colors are perceived more intensely without losing their natural characteristics. The right light is chosen depending on the reflectivity of the goods. In the FOOD series the colors of Gold, Gold+, Meat, Meat+, Fish and Fruit are available. Gold and Gold+ use intense shades of brown to underline the fresh, crisp appearance of baked goods and the variation in the range of cheeses, with Gold+ making colors look even more intense and rich. Meat and Meat+ ensure suitable presentation of fresh meat and sausages. Rich shades of red bring out the range of delicate pink to deep red, with white elements remaining white. Very cold light, in contrast, ensures fish and seafood appear fresh, while fruit and vegetables look particularly appetizing in warm white light. Since the LEDs are free from UV radiation, there is no danger of discoloration.

Fashion shops benefit from the properties of the FASHION module, which makes textiles appear in their true, vibrant and natural colors thanks to its special spectra, creating brilliant colors through warm, pleasant, high-saturation tones. The new PURE WHITE light color brings out white tones to create a rich color effect giving clothes a vivid appearance thanks to a spectrum which is below Planck curve.

Art and culture depend on the way they are presented – and light is a major factor. The ART light color puts exhibits and objects center stage and highlights their natural colors. The excellent color rendering and quality of light is produced by Tridonic's full-spectrum technology – with average values of CRI 97. Maximum color consistency (MacAdam 2) is guaranteed, and the LEDs are particularly gentle on the works of art.

Optimized generation: efficiency, lifetime and thermal management

Continuous development and improvement are of great importance at Tridonic. The seventh-generation modules are more efficient in comparison to the previous version: thanks to a chip upgrade they now deliver up to 191 lumens per watt, making them up to 16 percent more efficient. The improved process for applying the phosphor layer also results in optimized thermal management. This means that the modules can be operated with currents of up to 2,000 mA throughout the entire temperature range, reducing the need for heat sinks. At up to 55,000 hours, the modules also achieve a significantly longer life. All the modules are particularly quick and easy to install in luminaries and come with a five-year guarantee.
