Barthelme develops two new dimmable LED downlights with optional integrated LED driver

July 19, 2016
Barthelme LED Solutions complements its luminaire portfolio with two high quality downlight series in three performance packages and twelve individual forms for indoor illumination. With the new recessed downlights Treviso, and the surface-mounted downlights Trieste, from the Nuremburg manufacturer of customized lighting systems, the user benefits in the implementation or expansion of numerous lighting scenarios. 320 possible configurations assist planners, designers and architects in the composition of a tailored lighting concept. The downlights of the Treviso and Trieste series are manufactured in Germany and satisfy highest quality demands.

The new downlights from Barthelme are available with or without an integrated 24 V LED driver. As a result, two operating modes are available: one with constant current (CC) and one with constant voltage (CV) of 24 V. With the CV operation, the user has the possibility to implement or combine the downlights with the available accent illumination in a single power circuit and via a common power supply. In addition, the downlights are dimmable (PWM) and compatible with all CHROMOFLEX Pro LED controllers. The mounted LEDs from Cree are binned according to 3 step MacAdam and are shown to particularly good effect in combination with the Barthelme LEDlight flex strips which are selected according to the same criteria. Due to the flexible construction of the luminaires they are also easily integrated into other systems.

Three performance classes, four colour temperatures from 2700-5700 K, the frame sizes mini, midi and maxi in addition to the puristic design in matt signal white (RAL 9003) facilitate the planning and realization of professional lighting concepts. The recessed and surface mounted downlights are equipped with reflectors which distribute the light in space with beam angles of 15°, 24°, 38° or 60°. Each of the new downlights have a typical CRI (Colour Rendering Index) of 83 making them ideally suitable for interior lighting in hotels, restaurants, bars and public buildings. The downlights are available in adjustable or rigid versions. Equipped with a protective glass they enjoy a protection rating of IP40.
