ERCO LED Lighting Control

Control properties of LEDs

The optimal switching and dimming of LEDs makes them ideal for integration in electronic lighting control systems such as Light System DALI LEDs are completely switching stability and capable of hot restart, it can be infinitely dimmed from 100% to 1% – to no ill effects properties light colour and colour reproduction or life as with other lamps. Therefore, most of the ERCO LED lighting tools is also available as Light Client, i.e. with DALI-compatible control device available. The combination of individually addressable luminaires, powerful software and a variety of interfaces for switches and sensor combines with Light System DALI stenographic lighting with efficient visual comfort.


The brightness of LED lights can be adjusted continuously. With the master dimming, the Light Changer can also regulate a selected light scene in their overall brightness. Unlike other bulbs, colour temperature and colour rendering remain constant with LEDs.

Colour Temperature

Light Clients with RGBW LED module appear in Light Studio with attribute vary chrome 4-channel. With the corresponding slider in the software enables the colour temperature over a wide range infinitely variable.

Coloured light

For DALI-compatible luminaires with varychrome technology / for step less RGB colour mixing with the Light Studio/ is provide a comfortable and familiar colour wheel control. It provides an intuitive and interactive selection of light colours and relieves the user from the tedious entry of separate levels for the individual colour components.

DALI plug and play

Every Light Client, i.e. every DALI-compatible ERCO luminaire receives a digital code at the factory in the DALI control gear. The luminaire ID contains the article and serial number for the special comfort features for commissioning, programming and operation of the Light System DALI: The Light Studio software recognizes the type of luminaire and provides the relevant information and functions.

Control of varychrome rings

The Quintessence recessed luminaires with varychrome rings are designed for convenient control over Light System DALI. Main light and varychrome ring form in this type of lighting two lighting systems, each with its own DALI control gear. Light the lamp as a client but has a factory encoding with a unique glow-ID, allowing the Light Studio software can automatically detect the light as a unit and clearly summarized.

The light colour of the colour wheel by varychrome ring can be easily adjusted in the software and make a few clicks to program dynamic characteristics.

LED Lighting – Exterior lights

There are a wide range of LED lighting options available for a home exterior. Below are just a few of the available options.


Floodlights with axially symmetrical light distribution are primarily used for general lighting, especially during power outages or at night. The angle of the lights ensures are a broad visual field.

Facade Lighting

Vertical surfaces in the city contribute significantly to the formation of constricted spaces. Based on information from the psychology of perception, we know that facade lighting, mounted on the outside of buildings, plays an important role in opening up space, especially at night. Different cladding types require specific lighting concepts to highlight the qualities of the architecture. However, before adding facade lighting, it is recommended that you consult a professional to determine whether the cladding on your building can support the lighting. For example, if you are trying to put facade lighting on your home, siding experts, including the folks at Meredith roofing, can help you to determine whether facade lighting will work with your home’s siding.

Bollard Lights

While bollards are normally thought of within the context of building security, they are also an important lighting feature. They can simultaneously provide security and lighting for walkways and roadways. Typically, bollard lights are designed to radiate light toward the ground to illuminate roadways and pathways without generating any glare.

Recessed Lighting

Architectural features such as atriums, cantilevered roofs, tunnels or bridges require lights on the ceiling but may not have the space for the lighting to hang down. In this case, recessed lighting, or lighting that is built into the ceiling or wall, is the lighting option of choice. This is more difficult than normal hanging lights, but is sometimes necessary when space is limited.

Hanging Lights

If space is not a problem, then hanging lights, as opposed to recessed lights, are a good option. These are easier to install because they have only to be attached to the ceiling, whereas recessed lights require you to create space within the wall or ceiling to fit the light. Hanging lights are a good option in homes with vaulted ceilings or in gymnasiums.

Floor lights

Ground lighting is an excellent choice in a dark hallway, movie theater, or garden area. The key is to keep the light from radiating upward because this can create glare for whoever is nearby rather than providing illumination. Instead, you want to install lights that glow more dully or that radiate laterally.

Heat dissipation of LED lights

Being built in high-power LEDs, as well as with other lamps, heat by conduction. It is on the circuit board and the coupling to a heat sink or housing largely discharged backwards. The light from the white LEDs is however free from infrared radiation, the beam of light is thus no heat to the object. Especially for museums, this aspect is relevant because for conservation reasons heat stress on the exhibits is undesirable. The same applies for the illumination of heat-sensitive foods.

Heat radiated from products with low voltage halogen lamps

As thermal radiators produce low-voltage halogen lamps light possesses a glowing filament. This allows heat generated in all directions. Compared to LEDs contains the spectrum of low-voltage halogen lamps, a large infrared percentage. For lighting art are therefore usually required additional infrared filter, but reduce the efficiency.

Life of LEDs

Good heat management allows use of the potential of the LED over the life at full power. The junction temperature, which is measured between the two conductive layers of the LED, is the critical parameter for the heat management represents this exceeds a critical value, the first from the service life. The maximum value is exceeded, the LED will be complete. In the calculation of the nominal life flows the possible reduction of the luminous flux at 70% and the proper function of 50% of the LEDs. Places the thermal management of its LED lights so that a service life of 50,000 hours can be expected.

Interior lights – light structures

Since the invention of the incandescent lamp, no product has revolutionized the lighting design as the current bar. The track effectively solves lighting and lamps from the constraints of rigid mounting. It forms the basis for a variable, flexible lighting design, which may be based on varying design and use of a space. Wide range of accessories allows the linear ordering of rails or the construction of rectangular structures. Light structures combine the capabilities of fixed and moveable lights.

Spotlights, floodlights and wall washers

Spotlights bring flexible light in the architecture: flexibility, both in terms of positioning on the track as well as in the orientation, is its most important feature, and its domain is the accent lighting. The Lights series of qualify with different power ranges and detailed solutions for their respective applications. Each series features in unified design features with different beam lights and lamps.

Recessed spotlights, recessed floodlights and recessed wall washer

Recessed spotlights combine the flexibility of projectors with the peaceful image of recessed lights. Your domain is the accent lighting. Pivot mechanisms allow aligning the lights on objects or even vertical surfaces. Recessed spotlights are inconspicuous architectural details and can be combined very well with down lights.

Down lights

With recessed ceiling lights, the light enters fully behind its lighting effect. The lights barely as an additional design element, but are fully integrated into the architecture. Room and object effects unfold only in the interplay of surfaces and light – light that can be in various forms of accent lighting cone generated to flooding wall lighting with down lights.
