ERCO Lightscan -- Latest generation outdoor projectors

Ludenscheid. How can tall buildings that define urban space be efficiently illuminated at night? At the same time, how can a variety of different lighting solutions be implemented using a consistent luminaire design?

With Lightscan ERCO now offers an exceptionally versatile LED projector for use in the outdoor area. Its high levels of luminous flux and outstanding performance ensure precision in the illumination of buildings even where these are exceptionally tall. Architectural elements and objects are accentuated with accuracy even from afar. Lightscan offers highly efficient digital photometrics in a slim and user-friendly design that integrates inconspicuously into any architecture.

Lightscan appeals with outstanding photometric and design aspects. Versions ranging from 18W to 96W, with 1710 to 12000 lumen, enable the luminaire with its consistent design language to solve almost any lighting task -- including buildings of significant proportion or over large distances. Its narrow spot, spot, flood, wide flood, oval flood and wallwash characteristics ensure that the light can be aligned individually to be projected precisely onto the required objects.

Powerful, flexible and highly efficient
With Lightscan ERCO made a point of developing a powerful range of products that meets all the requirements of architects and designers. Be it as a projector, floodlight or lens wallwasher: Innovative photometrics and the flexible Spherolit lenses produce crisp-edged beams as efficiently as seamless wallwashing with high levels of luminous flux, depending on the intended target. The oval flood lens creates an ellipsoidal beam that can be rotated through 360 degrees. An extensive range of mounting hardware means the Lightscan effortlessly fulfils different requirements. Warm white and neutral white light offer broad scope for design to allow for different materials and surfaces, whereas coloured light on façades and walls generates eye-catching effects.

Slim silhouette
The luminaire’s highly efficient LED photometrics, which enable its enormous range of lumen packages for outdoor use, are reflected also in its distinct design. The slim silhouette, reminiscent of a computer monitor, is facilitated through arrangement of the LEDs on the PCB in combination with ERCO’s precise lens technology made of optical polymer. As a result, it blends harmoniously with its surroundings. For permanent alignment of the beam, the hinge can be tilted by 90 degrees and locked precisely and securely in position.

Robust partner
The luminaire’s powder-coated and smooth cast-aluminium housing and its high-strength cover glass guarantee long life and easy cleaning. This keeps the maintenance costs to a minimum even after installation and makes the Lightscan ideal for any lighting task in the outdoor area, but also for indoors where applications call for a higher protection mode – such as in swimming pools or sports facilities.
