collapse this descriptioncollapse this description Innovation Award for Tridonic
Dornbirn, December 11, 2013 – Tridonic Jennersdorf is once again among the winners of the Burgenland Innovation Award. The manufacturer of LED products was awarded third prize in the Large Companies category. The award was for a new production process for LED light sources offering significant energy savings.  more
collapse this descriptioncollapse this description High efficiency in a compact design
The new generation of TALEXXengine STARK NEW DLE light engines from Tridonic not only offers a boost in efficiency from 77 lm/W to 140 lm/W but the LED downlight module in the system has an exceptionally low profile of only 20 mm. An enlarged light emission surface with a diameter of 65 mm leads to lower luminance and makes it easier to reduce the glare from downlights. Lower UGR values (UGR = unified glare rating) can therefore be achieved and the quality of light improved as a result.  more

collapse this descriptioncollapse this description TALEXXengine STARK SLE: Generation 3 is here
Only nine months after the 2nd generation Tridonic is now launching the 3rd generation of the TALEXXengine STARK SLE LED light engine – more cost-effective and more efficient. Generation 3 makes for impressive reading: up to 80 % higher luminous flux, greater efficiency under real-life conditions (up to 125 lm/W at 4,000 K) and better hot lumen efficiency (up to Tp = 85 °C). Even after 50,000 hours of operation the 3rd generation achieves a life of up to L90. At the same time the modules are matched to the new ECO and TOP series of LED converters and together constitute an optimum system.  more
