Flexible infrastructure and indirect lighting: With Hi-trac profiles from ERCO

Flexible infrastructure and indirect lighting: With Hi-trac profiles from ERCO  [PKM_Objekt]
A classic application for profiles such as Hi-trac is for example large historical halls used as exhibition spaces. In such situations Hi-trac solves two tasks at the same time with minimized impact on the valuable building structure: A suspended structure of Hi-trac profiles allows ERCO spotlights and floodlights to be freely positioned on the integrated 2-circuit track for exhibition lighting. The extruded aluminum profile with a narrow, high section enables suspension spacing up to 12ft, thereby requiring just a few suspension points. Simultaneously, Hi-trac luminaires with LED modules integrated in the upper profile can also implement indirect general lighting with high visual comfort or illuminate decoratively designed ceilings.

A modular kit with diverse options
Hi-trac profiles also creatively solve appropriate lighting tasks in new buildings such as cultural institutions, foyers and premium retail projects. For this purpose the Hi-trac system features not only silver or white track profiles in two lengths of 8ft and 12ft, but also a diverse range of mounting accessories. In addition to power feeds, end plates and various L, T and X-connectors for creating complex light structures, these also include wire and pendant suspensions as well as wall fittings for a wide variety of constructional situations. The flexible system enables both lighting designers and interior designers to develop elegant structures that in terms of shape and proportions harmonize ideally with the specific space. The highly dependable and efficient Hi-trac mounting has already proved its worth in a great many lighting projects around the world.

Indirect light with efficient LED technology
The upper section of the Hi-trac system's powder-coated aluminum profile is used not only for fixing purposes but also for through-wiring, and can be sealed with a cover profile. With the Hi-trac luminaires the profile accommodates the indirect light distribution utilizing LED technology. The LED module with 12W power consumption emits 1175lm luminous flux in warm white (3000K) and 1533lm in neutral white (4000K). The module has a diffusor cover of structured plastic and integrated, phase-dimmable control gear. Users also benefit from the ERCO luminaire system concept with Hi-trac as well - stringently selected LEDs for both spotlights and Hi-trac luminaires ensure that the color locations of the various lighting components with identical light color remain continuously matched.
