Tunable White now available for area luminaires
Tridonic has expanded its product portfolio in the Tunable White segment with the addition of the square TALEXXengine QLE PREMIUM LED module. This has been designed specifically for area luminaires in healthcare facilities, offices and educational establishments. People, be they patients, staff or students who spend many hours in artificial lighting will be the main beneficiaries.
“Natural daylight has a positive effect on our well-being, health and productivity. It helps alleviate mood swings and keeps our biorhythms in balance. Dynamically adjustable light that changes over the course of the day has a comparable effect,” explains Martin Thompson, Technical Services Manager at Tridonic. The new offering is a square lighting solution known as the Tunable White Area System, which is tailored precisely to the area luminaires often found in healthcare facilities, offices and educational establishments..
The Tunable White Area System is available as a precalibrated set that provides optimum quality of light and high colour consistency. It consists of four square LED modules each with a luminous flux of 1250 lm and one low-profile LED driver with a one4all interface (DALI Device Type 8, DSI, switchDIM, colourTEMPERATURE) and an output of 75 W. System efficiency is more than 130 lm/W. Thanks to the calibration the colour temperature can be set dynamically between 3000 K and 6000 K, with the luminous flux being kept constant. In addition, the system can be dimmed from 100 to 10% without changing the colour temperature. This means that it is able to achieve an excellent system colour tolerance of MacAdam 3.
Integrated thermal management ensures that the system does not require separate cooling. The long life of 50,000 hours reduces maintenance requirements considerably and the economical LED light sources and dimming function combine to provide a high level of lighting comfort and a reduction in energy consumption.
