The advantages of a 48V system

Miniaturised, flexible and efficient. The low voltage system from ERCO enables high quality lighting concepts with extremely compact tracks and spotlights. Design your next project with Minirail 48V track and Eclipse 48V for example. Wireless light control, e.g. with Casambi Bluetooth or Zigbee, is your possibility to control the light via app. Installation is simple, and operation of a low voltage system is especially efficient thanks to central voltage converters.

Small cross section, large flexibility

The advantages of a 48V system

Small infrastructure

The Minirail 48V track has only a quarter of the cross-section of the ERCO 220V-240V track. The Minirail 48V track therefore looks elegant in rooms and discreet in furniture.

The advantages of a 48V system

Complete flexibility

Minirail 48V track has the same range of accessories as the familiar ERCO track with connectors and couplers, and can be mounted in a variety of ways with recessed, surface-mounted or pendant solutions. The track can also be shortened on site.

The advantages of a 48V system

More efficiency via central voltage conversion

48V low voltage systems are more efficient than the 220-240V systems at a power supply utilisation of 30% and more, because the conversion from mains voltage to 48V occurs centrally at the Minirail 48V track power feed and not at each individual luminaire. For typical applications such as Eclipse 48V, size S, with 10 luminaires on 10m of track, the low voltage system is 10% more efficient than the 220-240V system.

The advantages of a 48V system

Easier installation

Installation is simplified because only two wires are required for power feed and control instead of up to five wires as in 3-circuit or DALI installations. Nevertheless, all known control methods are possible! Control is elegant and uncomplicated via radio technology. A gateway provides connection to an existing lighting control system such as DALI.

The advantages of a 48V system

Reliably into the future with wireless connectivity

With its add-on control unit, ERCO has developed a flexible interface for controlling 48V luminaires. The unit can be exchanged without tools. In no time at all, a luminaire with onboard dimming is transformed into a Bluetooth-dimmable luminaire for example. The Minirail track is only used for power supply. Other cable-based protocols such as DALI can also be integrated via radio technology.

The advantages of a 48V system

Very small adapter

The adapter for installing on the Minirail 48V track is very small with 48V luminaires because these luminaires do not need their own power supply unit. Thus several luminaires can be positioned close together. The luminaire is also protected against polarity reversal, so there is no need to pay attention to the alignment when inserting it into the Minirail track.

The advantages of a 48V system

Ideal for precious art: reduced heat generation

The 48V luminaire emits less heat because it does not need its own power supply unit. This is ideal for heat-sensitive exhibits, especially in display cases. Compared to 220-240V systems, the heat in display cases can be reduced by 20W when using ten Eclipse 48V spotlights of size S.

The advantages of a 48V system

SELV safety extra-low voltage according to EN 60558-2-6

Due to the safety extra-low voltage, no special protective measures are required when installing the Minirail 48V track.

The advantages of a 48V system

Lower costs due to less control gear

Because conversion from mains voltage to 48V is implemented centrally at the feed for the Minirail 48V track and not separately for each luminaire, a 48V system is around 10% cheaper in investment costs than a comparable 220-240V system.
