To provide designers with optimum support at every stage of their work, ERCO offers a multitude of both classic and digital media. Our extensive range of material is divided into information on products, reference projects and didactic subjects. All ERCO documents have been designed to perfectly complement the design of coherent and uniform lighting concepts. The layout, structure and terminology of the various areas of the product range have been harmonised to make orientation as easy as possible for users.
The ERCO Light Scout on the Internet is the leading medium in terms of up-to-date product information. The product area of the Light Scout and the PDF-format product specification sheets are both updated on a regular base. Light Scout meets the requirements of a globalised market place with product information in 10 versions for different languages and regions and with Internet navigation in 5 languages.

Our extensive range of lighting solutions for architectural applications is divided into the three product ranges: lighting controls, indoor luminaires and outdoor luminaires. This structure is repeated in both the Light Scout and the printed catalogue.

The printed catalogue contains all the important information and design data - in black and white, compact and always accessible.
Product specification sheets
These documents are available online in PDF format and contain detailed information on a specific product.
For many years now the authentic, lively photographs from lighting projects have been the optimum medium for conveying the idea of "Light not luminaires".
Much space in ERCO communications is devoted to fascinating light in architectural applications - examples include the "Projects" area of the ERCO Light Scout and our magazine "ERCO Lichtbericht".

The Guide area of the ERCO Light Scout provides extensive information on topics ranging from the physical basics of lighting through to possible solutions for specific lighting situations - in short, a veritable encyclopaedia of architectural lighting. The Guide's knowledge-based modules utilise the Internet's interactive capabilities in order to clearly illustrate various aspects such as time-related phenomenon, experiments or comparisons between alternative solutions.

Various specialist brochures provide information on topics such as LED technology or light in the outdoor area. These are also available as PDF files in the Download section of ERCO's Light Scout.
Digital design data
In this regard, implementing architectural design is largely a matter of communication. Since spatial perception in humans is primarily visual, computer-generated visualisations have gained a permanent place in the process of architectural design. However, just like real architecture, virtual architecture also only comes to life with light. That's why every ERCO luminaire has a virtual "twin" in the form of digital luminaire data, which can be downloaded from the ERCO Light Scout website. It can then be inserted directly into lighting simulation and visualisation software to create physically accurate studies, visualisations and analyses - all in photographic quality.
