Futuro Lighting launches HighStick luminaire18 June 2014
Futuro Lighting’s HighStick luminaire has a colour temperature of 4000 K, a rectangular distribution of light and uniform light output, making it an ideal choice for workplaces and industrial halls. It features DALI and Smart Grid interfaces and, thanks to its high brightness, can be installed in rooms with ceiling heights in excess of 2.5 meters without compromising on adequate luminous intensity on desk surfaces.
With its exceptionally long life of more than 60,000 hours and its robust aluminium housing, the compact HighStick (800 mm x 80 mm x 40 mm) is also ideal as a light source for high-bay storage facilities, factories and outdoor architectural lighting installations.
The new luminaire is the result of successful cooperation between the Slovakian supplier of LED lighting solutions and Osram Opto Semiconductors. The Oslon Square LED from the German manufacturer offers excellent luminous efficacy as well as long life even at high temperatures and is used as light source for this luminaire from Futuro Lighting. The essential properties include a high brightness level of 1000 lux, the option of varying the intensity of the light as well as glare-free lighting solutions.
“We decided to install the Oslon Square LED in our HighStick after conducting a number of studies, showing that it achieved the best results in terms of luminous flux and efficiency,” said Dr Ing Valentin Kulikov of Futuro Lighting. The Oslon Square offers excellent heat dissipation, stable colour homogeneity and long life even at high temperatures. Depending on the colour temperature, it provides warm white or cold white lighting between 2400 and 5000 K. Its colour rendering index is more than 80, and its impressive luminous flux consists of 200 lumen per single LED.
