LIGHT ADMIN app: The smart way to configure lighting
With a versatile range of user-oriented customisation options and with the rising intelligence of lighting, it is becoming increasingly time-consuming to configure these systems. To counteract this in future, we have developed the LIGHT ADMIN app. The app can be used to create a building structure to provide lighting to all floors, rooms and areas. Waldmann luminaires can be integrated and configured within that structure. By way of example, this includes automatic switch-on, dimming levels response thresholds for the presence detectors and the swarm control.
Our MACH LED PLUS machine light with luminaire interface opens up new possibilities for you. The digital luminaire input for powerless switching saves you the need for additional relays and switches. That saves space and costs. Also, since you only switch on your machine light when you actually need it, this also reduces power consumption. The PWM interface also provides other benefits. When using a flash, you can use the stroboscope effect to visually inspect high-speed processes on the machine while it is in operation. Also, with an appropriate adjustment to the frequencies, the light can also be used for signalling, e.g. of error messages. The dimming function enables you to create some customised light settings, and this further reduces energy costs. The analogue dimming process assures flicker-free light at every level.
Forsa results: Lighting for aging workforce
For the majority of industrial companies good workplace lighting is crucial for maintaining health and performance. Around half of the companies surveyed admit that the percentage of older employees is increasing. The study however shows that more than half of the companies have so far employed hardly any individual lighting solutions at the workplace or none at all and therefore do not take into account the altered lighting needs of the aging workers.
i-Novo Design Award 2017 for the magnifier luminaire OPTICLUX
And the winner is ... our magnifier luminaire OPTICLUX! She wins the i-NOVO Award 2017 in the category Design. OPTICLUX has successfully mastered a three-stage evaluation process. OPTICLUX convinced experts from Medical Expo, industry experts and finally the public. We look forward to working together with the product management and the engineers who have invested a lot of passion in the development.
Individual light lines with IDOO.line and DOTOO.line
Thanks to a flexible system consisting of luminaires at the start, middle and end, the suspended luminaires DOTOO.line and IDOO.line enable configuration of individual light lines. Unlike DOTOO.line and most luminaires of this kind, IDOO.line offers not only direct but also indirect light. An advantage of both luminaires is that they are easy to install and maintain. Individual luminaires are connected mechanically and electrically without using tools.
IDOO.fit: Unique in form and function
Although it is recessed or surface-mounted, IDOO.fit seems to be floating below the ceiling. This impression is created because the ceiling and the walls are brightened with indirect light using specially designed optics. A trick, which also supports the effect as biodynamic light because the light brightens the area extensively and from above. IDOO.fit is suitable for computer workstations and classic raster ceilings.
ZERA family extended: now also available as wall-mounted and bathroom luminaire
Besides our ZERA Bed, the ZERA now also illuminates hallways and sanitary areas. Thanks to the new variants ZERA wall-mounted luminiaire and ZERA Bath, beds, hallways, staircases and sanitary areas can be illuminated in an harmonised manner.The high efficiency of the ZERA familiy of luminaires provides new possibilities for the architectural design. On the one hand, a smaller number of luminaires are required for the optimum illumination of areas in compliance with standards. On the other hand, ZERA impresses with its energy efficiency and durability.
Suspended Luminaire IDOO.pendant
The IDOO.pendant suspended luminaire designed by Burkhard Schlee amazes with its simple, floating optics. Despite its mounting height of only 20 mm, it has been possible to integrate all operating units into the luminaire, making for very easy installation. Thanks to the state-of-the-art edge-light technology, the direct light component provides particularly uniform lighting. In addition to single luminaires, daisy-chain connected luminaires to build light lines and variants equipped with the LUM CONNECT VTL light management system for biodynamic light are available.
LAVIGO: the world's first office luminaire to achieve Cradle to Cradle® certification
Our LAVIGO is the world's first office luminaire to have been awarded the internationally valid Cradle to Cradle® certificate that stands for comprehensive sustainability. To satisfy the high requirements, all the materials used were identified. They were evaluated in terms of their toxicological and recycling credentials and, in some cases, improvements were made. In addition, this certification incorporated verification of energy balance, the volume and quality of water required and compliance with social criteria.
