Innovative Lighting Solutions for Data Centres
Zumtobel and Thorn utilise the latest technology to deliver highly energy-efficient lighting solutions which are secure and designed to meet the increasing technical requirements of modern mission critical campuses. Zumtobel and Thorn will showcase their innovative lighting solutions, including Zumtobel’s flagship data centre product TECTON and Thorn’s award-winning Omega Pro 2.
TECTON is the world’s first LED continuous-row track lighting system with an 11-pole current conducting section built into its trunking body. This means that the system comes ready equipped to meet tomorrow’s needs. All functions such as power supply, lighting control, and connection to locally or centrally supplied emergency lighting are seamlessly integrated into the multifunctional trunking. Luminaires can be positioned flexibly onto the system and can be adapted to suit structural alterations at any time. TECTON copes effortlessly with various lighting requirements. The TECTON infrastructure remains unchanged and forms the functional backbone of the lighting ecosystem.
Designed for uniform illumination with minimal glare, TECTON offers easy installation, energy savings, and low maintenance, with six different light distribution optics and optional UGR < 19 variants all supported with Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), tracking the ecological footprint of the product to evidence both embedded and operational carbon impact.
Omega Pro 2
Omega Pro 2 from Thorn Lighting offers a new approach to lighting control. With this LED panel, which can be installed as a recessed, surface-mounted, or suspended luminaire, it’s easier than ever for users to add smart functionality to lighting installations, now or in the future. There is a choice of innovative new optics to give an installation a dynamic edge.
In addition, you can personalise your lighting just the way you want it, from the lit effect, to how you wish to control it, to the colour temperature. If you want to take advantage of the digital services available to remotely manage the space usage, environmental impact or even apply navigation services within your building, Omega Pro 2 can connect you to the digital future via a clever new development called Connect Kit or CKIT for short.
Omega Pro 2, combined with the O-PEC optical range, provides consistency to any lighting installation as the one product family offers a variety of options that will allow for a creative lighting design.
Data Centre Virtual Reality Experience
The stand will also feature a live virtual reality experience to demonstrate how you can reduce the OpEx and CapEx within your Mission Critical facility.
Steve Mansell, Divisional Director Critical Facilities at Zumtobel Group, comments, “With security breaches reported daily and growing concerns about high energy demands, data centre design has risen in prominence over the last few years. We are looking forward to presenting our latest innovations, including our data hall virtual reality experience visualising energy and product savings through racking colour & optical lighting control. As a global business, we are ideally positioned with our single-source supply chain, R&D investment, and international coverage to offer their audience a sustainable, secure lighting system.”
