Cantax for track
The Cantax spotlight range combines advanced lighting technology with a design to produce distinctive architectural accent lighting. For these luminaires, the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa created stylistic features that are both elegant and precise whilst consisting of simple geometrical shapes such as cuboids and cylinders. The spatial relationships of these basic shapes change depending on use resulting in an intriguing architectural impression. Cantax with the Spherolit technology produces a quality of light that meets the highest requirements from upmarket residences to shops, restaurants and galleries. The Spherolit technology is quickly replaced without tools, making it easy to change light distribution patterns to suit various lighting applications.
The specially designed joints of Cantax guarantee lasting precision, effortless alignment and a secure fit. The end positions are defined by stops.

Used to accentuate small objects with high light intensity or to project over greater distances between the luminaire and the target object. Beam angle < 10°.
This is the standard characteristic for accent lighting for objects of all kinds, especially to reveal the three-dimensional shape. Beam angle: 10°-20°.
Used for efficient accentuation of large objects or to uniformly emphasise a complete spatial zone. Beam angle: 25°-35°.
Used for flexible, flooding illumination of surface areas and spatial zones, especially useful for the presentation of goods. Beam angle > 45°.
The oval flood Spherolit lens produces a wide-beam, axially symmetrical light distribution. It produces an oval beam of about 20° by 60°.
The light intensity distribution of the lens wallwasher is designed to provide very high uniformity.
ERCO places particular importance on heat management. This ensures that LED modules operate within their safe temperature range, achieving rated life and output for the specified power throughout their entire operational life.
Dimming on the spotlight
Spotlights can be dimmed in various ways for efficient visual comfort. The versions with electronic control gear developed by ERCO have an integrated potentiometer to adjust the luminous flux precisely and individually.
Dimming via circuit
Spotlights with potentiometer can also be operated by external trailing-edge dimmers. This makes them ideal for an energy-efficient renovation of existing lighting installations which are equipped with this widely used dimmer technology. Alternatively, spotlights are also available as DALI-compatible Light Clients.
The modules of the varychrome RGBW luminaires consist of a combination of warm white and coloured LEDs. This allows for excellent colour rendering and infinite adjustment of the colour temperature.
Light Clients with the RGBW LED module are displayed in Light Studio with the varychrome RGBW attribute. The colour temperature can be infinitely adjusted over a wide range using the relevant slider control in the software.
For use with DALIcompatible varychrome RGBW technology luminaires, Light Studio features a colour wheel providing an intuitive and interactive means of selecting the light colours. The colour effect depends less on the illuminance than on colour saturation and different colour contrasts.
