Opton for track
Featuring ERCOs exclusive Spherolit technology, which is easily replaced without tools, Opton produces different light distribution patterns for flexible lighting solutions. Thanks to its modular design, Opton is particularly suitable for situations with frequently changing lighting requirements, such as in shop windows. The horizontal position of the compact control gear, in combination with the compact luminaire head, reduces its height thereby making it particularly suitable for rooms with low ceilings. Innovative Spherolit technology and low operating costs make Opton an economical investment. Depending on the lamp used, Opton is available either with a flat or a conical luminaire head.
The Spherolit technology is replaced quickly and without tools, making it easy to change light distribution patterns to suit changing shop window and product presentations.

The quality of the optical system design has a major influence on the overall efficiency of an LED. To produce directed light, ERCO uses optical projection systems that have been specifically designed and built inhouse. A collimator, as a secondary lens, forms the interface between the LED lens on the printed circuit board and the interchangeable Spherolit lens acting as the tertiary lens. This system design gives the designer of ERCO installations a unique variety of light distributions for professional lighting design applications. Decades of experience in injectionmoulded polymers ensure the highest quality levels from our inhouse production plant.
The primary lens is mounted directly on the LED chip and produces a hemispherical beam emission.
As the secondary lens, the collimator aligns the rays of light into a parallel beam, enabling different tertiary l enses to be added.
After focusing the beam, it is the Spherolit tertiary lens that then determines the light distribution. This ranges from narrow beams to wide beams and also includes asymmetrical light distributions for vertical illuminance.
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.
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 or DALI
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 light of varychrome RGBW luminaires is produced by individually addressed warm white, red, green and blue LEDs. This ensures a very good colour rendering, infinite adjustment of the colour temperature and coloured light with high colour saturation.
Light Clients with the RGBW LED module are displayed in Light Studio with the varychrome RGBW attribute. The colour temperature can be adjusted infinitely over a wide range using the relevant slider control in the software.
Spherolit lens identification
To help identify the various tertiary lenses, the name of the light distribution is inscribed around the edge of each Spherolit lens.
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.
