High efficiency in a compact design
The new generation of TALEXXengine STARK NEW DLE light engines from Tridonic not only offers a boost in efficiency from 77 lm/W to 140 lm/W but the LED downlight module in the system has an exceptionally low profile of only 20 mm. An enlarged light emission surface with a diameter of 65 mm leads to lower luminance and makes it easier to reduce the glare from downlights. Lower UGR values (UGR = unified glare rating) can therefore be achieved and the quality of light improved as a result.
Dornbirn, Austria – The new generation of TALEXXengine STARK NEW DLE light engines is more efficient, more compact and offers better glare reduction. The system comprising an LED module and associated converter benefits from state-of-the-art LED technology which enables more efficient and more cost-effective modules with very low profiles to be produced. In addition, the "Best LED Operation" (BLO) mode ensures that there is always the optimum balance between efficiency, lifetime and cost. A colour rendering index (CRI) greater than 80 and small colour tolerances in accordance with MacAdam 3 translate into high-quality light from the LED modules. Colour differences are barely perceptible so the white light has an extremely uniform appearance. The white light is available in the standardised colour temperatures of 3,000 K and 4,000 K.
Less glare, more applications
The light emission surface of the LED module now has a greater diameter of 65 mm. This reduces the luminance, making it easier to cut down on glare from luminaires and lighting systems. Lower UGR values can be achieved, opening up new applications which make higher demands on the quality of light. These include computer workstations, conference rooms, schools and other educational establishments. At the same time, the height has been reduced by 50 percent to only 20 mm. Luminaire designers now have even greater creative freedom, particularly for compact lighting solutions.
TALEXXconverter ECO (dimmable from 1 to 100 percent) and TALEXXconverter TOP (non-dimmable), 20 and 35 W, are perfectly matched to the LED modules and are available as built-in and surface-mounted versions. The appropriate lumen package is automatically configured when the LED module is connected to the converter. The luminous flux remains constant at all times, even if the colour temperature changes. Different luminous flux packages (1,100 lm, 2,000 lm, 3,000 lm) are available for simple and accurate planning throughout the entire life of the light engine of 50,000 hours
