Hera presents creative new developments at the EuroShop 2014
Dynamic White LED for softly changing lighting moods
When it comes to creating LED lighting, comfort is becoming an increasingly important factor in modern lighting design. Lighting solutions which offer both outstanding energy efficiency and the option of being able to dynamically adjust a light’s brightness and warmth to suit individual requirements and moods are in high demand.
Hera has embraced this trend at this year’s EuroShop from 16th to 20th February 2014 and has yet again demonstrated its proven ability to innovate with its Dynamic LED Line and Dynamic FR 68-LED products.
The Dynamic LED Line is the most recent product development from the popular Hera LED Strips range. Its special feature is state-of-the-art LED lighting technology, delivering dynamically adjustable and dimmable light colour. Depending on the application required, the luminaire’s colour temperature in the white colour range can be individually adjusted from warm white (2700 Kelvin) to cool white (5000 Kelvin). This allows the room ambience to be adjusted to suit individual requirements, applications and moods – whether as part of decorative furniture lighting at home or for the sophisticated illumination of showcases, counters and customised architectural solutions in the shopfitting area.
The Dynamic LED Line is available in various lengths - 333, 1000 and 2000 millimetre. For the basic 333 millimetre length, the strip lighting is fitted with a maximum of 24 (70mW) LEDs. A continuous strip of six metres maximum can be combined per connecting cable – the strips can also be shortened every 167 mm at marked places.
A light output of 80 lumens per watt and an average lifespan of 30,000 hours ensure low energy consumption and maintenance costs and complete the Dynamic LED Line’s lighting expertise.
Dynamic FR 68-LED – outstanding performance in compact format
Hera has launched the Dynamic FR 68-LED model – a new ultra-slim recessed luminaire. Its round design and an extremely shallow recess depth of 11 mm combine space-saving design with the features of state-of-the-art and easy-to-use lighting technology. The core component of the Dynamic FR-68-LED is 2 x 36 x 111 mW high-performance light emitting diodes which provide impressive lighting effects – individual light spots merge together with a frosted luminous window into a uniform surface with no visible hot spots. Low-contrast and glare-free light creates a gentle lighting mood which meets the highest demands in general and accent lighting. When it comes to creating individual lighting scenarios, the Dynamic FR-68 LED stands out as a result of adjustable white colour temperatures ranging from warm white (2700 Kelvin) and cool white (5000 Kelvin). Other positive aspects are the incredible LED light output of 100 lumens per watt and excellent colour rendering properties of >85 Ra. The Dynamic FR 68 LED recessed luminaire is available in two housing colours - matt chrome and stainless-steel look.
Easy to connect
All Dynamic White products (Dynamic LED Line and Dynamic FR68 LED) are connected using Hera’s modified modular controller system. This requires a standard Hera LED DC 24 V transformer, which, depending on requirements, generates up to 75 watts of electrical power, along with a ready-to-use LED 24 V dynamic controller, including an easy-to-operate radio remote-control.
Future-orientated modular design
Thanks to its new modular design, the entire controller system is ideal for any new installation or subsequent addition of a new system. This makes it easy to assemble Hera’s LED DC 24 V transformer and various LED 24 V controllers – either for radio, 1-10V, Dali or Dynamic White - used for dimming luminaires or individually controlling the colour temperature. It can also be used in the complete Hera 24 V technology range.
Hera will be presenting further details and the latest news on Euroshop 2014 in Düsseldorf at the Hera stand (Stand 11C24, Hall 11).
