High efficiency spotlight exhibits retail potential
Osram is demonstrating how retailers can win over customers with a spotlight that brings the quality of museum illumination to the retail sector. The company’s Lunis 2 Track spot is based on the LED luminaire used in the Lenbachhaus art museum in Munich, Germany.
Being demonstrated this week at Euroshop, the world’s leading fair for the international retail sector, taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany the Lunis 2 Track spot can be mounted to tracks, and is ideal for the targeted accenting and display of goods in retail stores as well as for public buildings and museums.
The spot features high efficiency and good colour rendering (CRI > 90). Heat is dissipated via cooling ribs instead of a cooling system with water or fan, making the luminaire especially durable. Lunis 2 will initially be available with warm white (3000 Kelvin) and neutral white (4000 Kelvin) light, and a version with flexible colour temperatures is also being planned.
Also on show at Euroshop Osram is revealing the company’s ‘Debut’ design study which is a fitting cabin equipped on the inside with two LED screens and luminaires with variable light colours. The design study will enable customers who wish to, say, try out swimming trunks in a vacation atmosphere. Using ‘Debut’ a beach scene is displayed on the screen and the luminaires simulate a bright sunny day. The customer sees the product in the mirror as it looks later in use. The fitting cabin is controlled by a tablet PC.
A further glimpse of future possibilities is made available by Osram with its Prevaled Core 2015 concept study. A LED light source with LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors is shown, a so-called light engine for spots that unites three important characteristics: Flexibility, quality of light and economy.
The displayed prototype can be set at random from warm white (2700 Kelvin) to cool white (5000 Kelvin). Prevaled Core 2015 has been developed to require simpler control unit electronics than current light engines, giving more economic applications. The market launch in luminaires is planned for 2015.
