Long functional life: L90/B10
Lumen maintenance is a critical performance metric for luminaires and explains our focus on ensuring the best values for the LEDs in our products. ERCO therefore uses LEDs with the specification L90/B10 for a very consistent lifetime performance, supported by advanced thermal management in great lighting tools. This means that after 50,000 hours, effectively 90% of the LEDs or more still achieve 90% of their original luminous flux. As well as this impressive performance, the LEDs used at ERCO have an amazingly low failure rate of 0.1%, and even then, the luminaire remains fully operational. Our focus on the highest quality means that ERCO LEDs exceed the standard specification currently used in the market, offering the lowest possible maintenance requirements for the highest possible efficiency of our lighting tools.
As the quality and design of the lenses affects the performance of an LED luminaire significantly, we have invested considerably in superior lens systems. Be it shops, offices or exhibitions: ERCO has developed optimised lighting systems to meet the various different lighting requirements. This includes solutions such as the modular lens system with Spherolit technology and the cost-effective assimilated lens system as prime examples that perfectly illustrate the potential of LED technology. Understanding the effect of light distribution in a concept, we apply ourselves to providing the widest array of precise photometric options to support a differentiated lighting design.
Maximum precision: Projection replaces reflection
With the 100% migration to LED technology, ERCO has perfected the principle of light projection – in preference to conventional reflection. The LED as a compact point light source is ideal for projections with highly precise light distributions achieving a high light output ratio without spill light. The directed light of the LEDs is focused through special ERCO optical systems ensuring an optimum luminous efficacy and maximum precision in guiding the light only and exactly where it is needed. The brilliance and flexibility of the projected ERCO LED light open up a diversity of new options in the design of rooms and ensure that the light arrives on the target surface with no losses.
