Simulates Incandescent Dimming with Shift to Warm for Enhanced Lighting Ambience
Dornbirn, Austria — Tridonic, a leading global provider of smart and efficient lighting solutions, today announced it is expanding its range of dimmable LED modules for spotlights and downlights with the SLE SUNSET EXC. SUNSET’s light color creates a particularly intimate atmosphere and comes very close to reproducing the familiar light of an incandescent lamp. SUNSET is a member of the SLE EXC series, following FOOD, ART and FASHION. It allows Tridonic to showcase its expertise in special light spectra and colors on a COB (chip-on-board) basis.
COB LED modules offer different light colors, which have been specially designed for specific areas of application. SUNSET, the latest member of the family, is mainly intended for use in the hospitality industry, the spa industry and the home environment. With a color temperature of 2700 K, it offers a warm light similar to that emitted by a typical incandescent light bulb, even in its undimmed state, and therefore provides a pleasant ambience. When dimmed, the light shifts toward the red end of the spectrum, simulating dimming performance equivalent to that of an incandescent light bulb – providing an even cozier atmosphere. The light intensity and correlated color temperature can be adjusted continuously from 2700 K to 1800 K when dimming from 100 percent to 5 percent. This makes it possible for a sunset to be simulated as desired, or a candlelight effect to be produced.
The new LED modules are available with different light-emitting surfaces (LES) of 11 mm and 15 mm. The LES11 module typically reaches up to 1000 lumen and the LES15 up to 2000 lumen. The SUNSET EXC variants are also available in a ZHAGA-compliant holder design. All modules combine high light quality with low color tolerances, which correspond to the entire dimming range of MacAdam 3.
The SLE SUNSET EXC LED modules have the same form factor as previous SLE modules and are specially conceived for Tridonic’s own dimmable LED drivers, EXCITE and ADVANCED.
