New LED Modules for Outdoor Applications from Tridonic

Tridonic's new RLE EXC OTD 2x4/ 2x8 HP LED modules are resistant to overvoltage and are geared towards more demanding outdoor and industrial applications.
They can be combined with standard lenses and support modular luminaire design. Thanks to a variety of beam characteristics, many different lighting scenarios can be created.
The robust TALEXXmodule RLE OTD EXCITE 2x4/ 2x8 HP high-performance modules stand for a durable lighting system which, thanks to an efficiency of up to 161 lm/W and 4 kV overvoltage protection, offers impressive performance both in outdoor and industrial applications in an extended temperature range from -40 to +105 °C. The modules have passed the test carried out in an environment of saltwater and fog according to IEC 60068-2-52 and are also resistant to hydrogen sulfide (GR-1217-CORE).
The associated optics can be freely selected to enable the lighting to be adapted to a wide range of requirements, offering enormous flexibility. Depending on the beam characteristic, a symmetrical or asymmetrical distribution of light with wide or narrow beam angles is possible. This enables floodlight to be generated and rooms with particularly high ceilings such as the ones in factories and warehouses to be illuminated. A very long life of 100,000 h at an operating current of 700 mA (L80 B10 at 105 °C at the tc point, or L90 B10 at < 80 °C at the tc point) considerably reduces maintenance. The manufacturer offers support for the thermal design of the components, ensuring long-term reliable operation in L90 B10. If a temperature sensor is required that allows power reduction to protect the technology, the modules are also available with external and internal logic. Both versions are protected against polarity reversal.
M3 screws can be used to install the LED modules in the luminaire together with the selected lens. By means of M4 connectors they can also be installed directly in the luminaire head, making assembly much easier.
In combination with a driver and ready2mains programmer, the LED modules can be easily programmed via the mains and can be adapted to changing lighting scenarios. In future, net4more, the new hardware and software platform, will open up even more possibilities for scalable and connected lighting thanks to its open interfaces.
