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

Headlights and wall washer

There is a wide range of accessories. Floodlights with axially symmetrical light distribution are primarily used for general lighting, especially during asymmetric floodlights for uniform illumination of suitable areas. High-off angle of the lights ensure a very good visual comfort.

Facade Lighting

Vertical surfaces in the city contribute significantly to the formation of spatial locations, buildings and road axes. From the psychology of perception and aesthetic aspects façade lighting is an important element in the urban night lighting. Different cladding types require specific lighting concepts to highlight the qualities of the architecture. The wide range of facade lighting offers various lighting solutions ranging from grazing light on facades to street lighting.


In the environment of buildings caused many lighting applications – from functional lighting paths, steps and open spaces to highlighting façades. Lighting systems with different, mostly asymmetrical flooding radiation characteristics solve these problems with a single design within the family and give the designer much freedom in the choice of mounting and lighting placement. Regardless of the lighting function, principle is referred to in Dark Sky always avoiding unnecessary glare and stray light in the foreground.

Down lights

Architectural situations such as atriums, cantilevered roofs, passages or bridges require lights for ceiling mounting, which in its construction meet the requirements for outdoor luminaires. The ceiling lights for the outdoor set for this application different light characteristics of down light through directional spotlights to wall washer available and are thus excellent for the continuation of lighting concepts from the interior to the exterior.

Ceiling mounted lights

Often-lead very pragmatic views on the use of ceiling mounted lights: If the need for installing conventional down lights in the ceiling space is not available. The deliberate choice of a lighting concept with ceiling mounted lights reduces installation time significantly, for example, in solid ceilings or in existing buildings and the design can be adapted flexibly to the circumstances. The ceiling mounted lights are available for different light characteristics of down light, through directional spotlights to wall washer available and are thus excellent for the continuation of lighting concepts from the interior to the exterior.

Floor lights

Ground luminaires achieve a high degree of attention, since both the presence of light sources on the ground and the light direction from bottom to top are unfamiliar and therefore particularly striking. They assume duties as sign lighting, for example, illustrate ways guides or mark entrances. Besides these more technical usage to provide the lighting also for effective architectural lighting, whether for dramatic emphasis of points of view or to highlight architectural lines with a row of lights.

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.
