Ledon Lends Impetus to Light+Building 2008

Ledon will exhibit LED.Light.Emotion.Dynamics – at the Light+Building, the lighting industry's leading international trade fair which will be held from 6 to 11 April 2008 in Frankfurt am Main.

As an innovation driver in the LED sector, LEDON offers an exciting glimpse into the future of innovative light sources and inspiring LED application solutions for a wide variety of applications, with a focus on media-capable applications in the entertainment field, ultra-modern LED solutions for showcases and the latest generation of XED digital light sources.

LEDs turn light into a communication medium:
Ledon will be demonstrating examples of how technology and applications can be linked in the form of video-capable wide-area LED lighting for ceilings and walls as well as linear LED solutions with interval-controlled colour gradients and light sequences. Among others, 700 metres of the Schatzalp funicular railway have been fitted with colourchanging LED light tubes recently.

Pixelnet, Ledon’s latest development, will be on show for the very first time: LED chains, each comprising three RGB LEDs in one pixel, are positioned on special-steel profiles to form a flexible LED network. Thanks to almost freely selectable pixel spacing, this gives a randomly configurable LED solution, which because of its statically stabilised substructure, can be adapted to suit any surface. Controlled by a video protocol, Pixelnet can be adapted to operate with widely used protocols in studio and media environments and can therefore be smoothly integrated. Clips can be produced from all commonly used formats. With a lighting output of 1 W / pixel, Pixelnet can produce impressive lighting scenarios effective at long-distance and is ideally positioned as the future solution of choice for media-capable exterior design of buildings and properties. Colour and light are refreshed in real-time, which lends the LED network a remarkably lifelike effect.

LEDs set the stage for lighting in furniture:
Ledon offers a variety of LED solutions for optimum functionality with furniture, thus addressing a new application area.  A flexible track system with an aluminium section and diminutive LED spots shows just how playfully luminaire design can meet the exacting requirements of glass furniture while simultaneously showing objects off in the right light. The linear lighting excels thanks to different lighting scene settings and dimming levels for special accent lighting. Wide-area LED modules for ceilings and walls provide spaces with a designer look. All showcase systems are fitted with high-quality white light LEDs, which deliver a colour temperature of 4200K.

XED portfolio for the highest quality white light:
nanoXED and powerXED high efficiency light sources are new additions to the Ledon product portfolio. The XED range offers highly competitive light sources with outstanding features: XED is the smallest power emitter on the market measuring only 2,5mm x 2,5mm x 0,6m, with a 120 lambert beam pattern and a unique Zero Colour Binning guarantee ensuring that with the use of several XEDs no visible difference in colour temperature and colour rendition occurs. The use of inorganic materials ensures durability, reliability and a long service life in excess of 50 000 hours. Combining an excellent light homogeneity and superior Colour Rendering Index (Ra 8) of up to 90 for powerXED in the warm white range, the characteristics of both nanoXED and powerXED bring a new highlight to white light quality, as has recently been seen in the inclusion of nanoXED in the BMW Museum project in Munich.
