With the aim of seamlessly combining commercial and architectural lighting systems, offering instant scene-setting control and allowing lighting designers to blend decorative displays with function and performance, Helvar is set to complement its expanded range of multi-channel 458 Dimmers with innovations such as Touch Studio, as well as a new range of face plate designs.
Touch Studio is a unique Helvar control package that bridges the gap between efficient building-wide monitoring and control, and scene-setting capability for specific areas. Touch Studio allows lighting to be operated via PC – both centrally and from individual workstations. There is no requirement for additional cabling and hardware and installers can take advantage of the system for retro-fit projects, with no barrier to future expansion, due to the flexible, modular nature of Helvar’s DALI based control systems. There will be a working demonstration on the stand.
The full range of 458 Dimmers – including the slim-line, 8 channel variant through to the commercially focused 16 and 24 channel models are on show. The 458 is an Ethernet backed, multi-application induction dimmer that delivers scalability and maximum flexibility throughout each fit-out stage and, using a range of control modules, brings full dimming, switching and ballast control capability to a broad spectrum of lighting projects, from residential to decorative through to commercial.
The new face plate designs have refreshed the Helvar’s long-standing existing plates. The design offers an aesthetic look that is distinctive and fits nicely with the latest interior design trends. The complete range has undergone a makeover and the Arc Show is the European debut of the new look.
Also on display, will be the compact, luminaire based control unit iDim. Available in 6 out-of-box application modes, removing the need for on-site programming, the iDim range of controllers delivers energy saving lighting control, regardless of the size or complexity of a building’s layout, drastically simplifying commercial lighting control specification.
