LEDs enhance visual design of CEDES Science Park
Optical sensor manufacturer CEDES has used over 20,000 LEDs for internal and external lighting at its headquarters in Landquart (Switzerland).
CEDES used its more than twenty years of experience in designing and marketing products using LEDs -- the company is one of the world's largest manufacturers of light curtains using infrared LEDs -- to create new and innovative ways to use LEDs in the workplace.
The CEDES Science Park landmark is a 60-metre high test tower used by CEDES in the development of components for elevators. At night, LEDs illuminate the 2.5-meter-high company logo at the very top of the tower in the company's "CEDES blue" brand color.
"Light pipes" ensure that the tower remains fully visible by night (up to 10 kilometres horizontal line of sight). Power-LEDs make the whole tower glow in the darkness in eight constantly changing shades of colour.
