Tridonic of Dornbirn Austria has added the SLE SUNSET EXC to its range of dimmable LED modules for spotlights and downlights. The company says that SUNSET’s light color comes very close to reproducing the familiar light of an incandescent lamp and creates a uniquely intimate atmosphere. The SUNSET LED module, the fourth member of the SLE EXC series, follows FOOD, ART, and FASHION.
The new module like the other SLE EXC series modules utilizes the company’s chip-on-board (COB) technology to produce its special light spectra and light colors. Tridonic designed all of the COB series LED modules to offer different light colors for specific application types.
Tridonic says it designed the SUNSET, the latest member of the family primarily for use in the hospitality industry, the spa industry, and the home environment. A color temperature of 2,700 K gives it a warm light similar to that from an incandescent light bulb, even in its undimmed state.
Dimmable Tridonic Module Allows Color Temperature Adjustment
The company claims that when dimmed, the light provides an even cozier atmosphere. The SUNSET LED module boasts dimming performance that is also equivalent to a light bulb. When dimming from 100 % to 5 % brightness, the module’s light intensity and correlated color temperature can be adjusted continuously from 2,700 K to 1,800 K. Tridonic says that this ability to change correlated color temperature along with brightness makes it possible to simulate a sunset as desired, or to create a candle light effect.
The new LED modules are available with different light emitting surfaces (LES) of 11 mm and 15 mm in diameter. The LES11 module typically produces 1,000 lumens, and the LES15 provides 2,000 lumens. Like the other EXC variants, the SUNSET modules feature a ZHAGA-compliant enclosure design.
Over the entire dimming range, all of the EXC modules offer color tolerances within a 3-step MacAdam Ellipse.
The SUNSET SLE LED module has CRI of 90. Also, the SUNSET features the same form factor as previous SLE modules, and it works with Tridonic’s own dimmable LED drivers PREMIUM, EXCITE, and ADVANCED PC.
