Wire In the right light
Tridonic offers a wide range of products for special lighting tasks, and the company’s new LED modules in the seventh-generation SLE excite (EXC) series perfectly meets the criteria for demanding applications in food, fashion and art. Whether it’s freshly baked goods, colourful textiles or valuable works of art, Tridonic’s broad portfolio of LED modules offers the right light for any object from warm, intense browns for pastry displays, rich reds for meat counters or true-colour light for the presentation of fashion collections and works of art.
All Tridonic’s components are selected and developed in a strict qualification process and patented phosphors optimise the interplay between efficiency and colour rendering. Individual colour temperatures allow for food to be displayed to the very best effect and the colours are perceived more intensely without losing their natural characteristics. In the FOOD series, the colours 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 colours 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. In contrast, very cold light ensures fish and seafood appear fresh, while fruit and vegetables look particularly appetising in a warm white light. Since the LEDs are free from UV radiation, there is no danger of discolouration.
Retail fashion shops can benefit from the properties of the FASHION module, which makes textiles appear in their true, vibrant and natural colours thanks to its special spectra, creating brilliant colours through warm, pleasant, high-saturation tones. The new PURE WHITE light colour brings out white tones to create a rich colour 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 plays a major factor. The ART light colour puts exhibits and objects centre stage and highlights their natural colours. The excellent colour rendering and quality of light is produced by Tridonic’s full-spectrum technology with average values of CRI 97. Maximum colour consistency (MacAdam 2) is guaranteed, and the LEDs are particularly gentle on the works of art.
“The SLE G7 excite module series for spotlight applications offers our customers a wide selection of light colours which fulfil 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.”
The seventh-generation modules are more efficient in comparison to the previous version, thanks to a chip upgrade and 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 optimised 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 luminaires and come with a five-year guarantee.
