ERCO Innovations 2017: Systematic approach to light

What makes a museum a landmark? How is atmosphere created in a space? How can the beauty of an antique bust or contemporary painting be emphasized? ERCO lighting tools support lighting designers in solving conceptionally and creatively sophisticated tasks using perception-orientated lighting. This form of illumination is based on the approach of the lighting designer Richard Kelly (1910 - 1977) that subdivides light into three types: general lighting providing fundamental orientation ('ambient luminescence'), accent light that emphasizes areas and objects ('focal glow') and decorative light as an end in itself ('play of brilliants'). Using perception hierarchies achieved with different levels of contrast and various sizes of bright surfaces, light purposefully guides the viewer's gaze and creates atmosphere and identity. The illuminated object is of course focused on, the materials and colors of which are individually, precisely and considerately displayed.

ERCO luminaire systems give creative and technical designers maximum flexibility for this form of qualitative lighting design. Thanks to a range of luminaire types, design variants, construction sizes, lumen classes and uniform light distributions, ERCO lighting tools are ideal for any form of lighting design.

A partner at eye level
As well as the enthusiasm for perception-orientated architectural lighting, it is also the fascination for innovative technologies and maximum quality of light that makes ERCO an internationally leading luminaire manufacturer not only for robust outdoor lighting but also for highest quality museum lighting. Thanks to the maximum precision and quality of ERCO LED lighting technology – also for the sophisticated, conservational illumination of buildings – international cultural institutes and other public bodies across the world have used lighting tools from ERCO for over 50 years: The Louvre in Paris, the PRADA Foundation in Milan and the new Australian art biennial in Venice are just a few examples. ERCO is also used by the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, by the Canadian Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg and by the World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York.

ERCO innovations: Diversity for culture and outdoors
The breadth and consistency of the ERCO modular system achieves new levels with the new products for 2017: A completely new light distribution expands the creative options for lighting designers and new control units enable uniform, stepless dimming behavior from 100% to 1%.
The new range of spotlights deserves particular attention, fulfilling the complete spectrum of visual tasks in museums. Discover for yourself our diversity of design and high ERCO quality of light!

Kona XS - simple and compact

The big guys are not always needed for lighting in the outdoor sector – especially in near field applications with people in urban spaces, gardens and building vicinity areas. Kona XS is the most compact outdoor projector in the ERCO program. Its technology concentrates on the essentials – quality of light based on the consistently high quality of Spherolit LED optics with diverse light distributions. Precise, cost-efficient designs with light are the result without eliminating the innate magic of darkness. The design of the Kona XS is based on the modern, conical shape of its large cousins from the Kona range. The smooth aluminum housing is robust, easy to install and features easy care.

Parscan - systematic diversity

Light, not luminaires: The philosophy that determines the sleek, cylindrical Parscan form. A variety of lighting solutions can be implemented with the precise, flexible photometrics. If the spotlight is aligned downwards as a downlight the support bracket blends seamlessly into the overall design. With its black housing color, compact form and low swiveling out when the luminaire head is rotated and tilted, Parscan is ideal for mounting in ceiling channels. The excellent glare control also provides pleasant visual comfort even with challenging lighting situations. With its purist design the luminaire has a very discreet appearance in museums and stores as well as sacral spaces.

Pollux - for magic moments

The versatility of Pollux, based on its compact format, displays particular strengths in museums, stores, the catering industry and residential environments. As a special highlight, Pollux also includes contour spotlights with LED. Using the framing attachment, their sharp-edged beam can be adjusted to suit the format of images and objects in the room or on the wall. This creates wonderful effects with a particularly prestigious appearance in museums and galleries. Its understated design means that Pollux is also excellent in combination with other spotlight series or as an addition to existing lighting systems.

Cantax - Plain and simple

Cantax produces the perfect beam—brilliant, evenly bright and with a soft edge. With technology from ERCO: Innovative Spherolit technology, which is easily exchanged between applications, makes Cantax the ideal tool to meet the highest lighting standards in applications ranging from residential buildings and stores through to restaurants and works of art. The LED spotlights are also ideal for exhibitions requiring light without damaging infrared or ultraviolet components, thus satisfying stringent conservational criteria.

Pantrac - lighting effects for walls

Pantrac fulfils the supreme challenge of lighting with complete confidence: perfect wallwashing. With high visual comfort it creates highly homogeneous, planar lighting on walls, retail shelving and exhibition objects. Innovative photometrics optimize the efficiency as well as reducing the number of required luminaires thanks to wider luminaire spacing. With its archetypal cubic design, the luminaire integrates effortlessly into modern spaces as well as historic architecture. Luminaire brightness can be dimmed down to 1% for the conservational illumination of artworks in museums.

Hi-trac - carrying it off

Hi-trac profiles are heavy-duty and enable wide spacing between the suspension points. Hi-trac is produced from aluminum and is available with an integrated ERCO track in two versions: either with an empty upper profile for further cable routing or as an indirect distribution luminaire.

Lightgap - emphasizing wall structures for a three-dimensional effect

Lightgap emphasizes the tactile qualities of architectural materials. The grazing light wallwasher brings out the finest wood or concrete texture as exquisitely as rough surfaces such as natural stone, thereby enabling the luminaire to set off historic features or local materials. In contrast to conventional wallwashers that give walls a soft character, Lightgap adds an almost tactile dimension through high-contrast light and shadow effects. With its asymmetric light distribution, the grazing light wallwasher can be positioned as close as 10cm from the wall and still produce an exceptionally uniform beam. The luminaire can be tilted conveniently by up to 10° in both directions. The resulting special rendering of vertical illuminance combines strikingly illuminated texture for scenic impact with efficient spatial lighting for applications such as restaurants and hotels.
