Luminous power at the working place

September 27, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
As an arm-mounted or system luminaire, the TANEO LED luminaire from Waldmann ensures luminous power to suit the particular application, high lighting quality, and ergonomic handling for ideal lighting conditions at industrial workstations. At the same time, it is especially energy-efficient.

With three available output levels (1,400, 2,600 and 3,600 lux), TANEO fulfils every lighting requirement. The associated advantage is that, in both procurement and operation, the costs are based on what is really needed. In every illuminance, TANEO saves up to 30 percent energy when compared to conventional industrial task luminaires with the same luminous power. This means: At an illuminance of 1,400 lux, the consumption is only 15-watt; for 2,600 or 3,600 lux, it is 31- or 47-watt, respectively.

TANEO provides wide-range, homogeneous, glare-free, and shadow-free lighting. This is thanks to implemented technologies such as Light Forming and Ray Mixing. Effective glare-free technology options are available with a conical prism (CDP) or white opal screen. CDP is the right choice if the focus is on maximum efficiency. In contrast, the opal white screen provides completely homogeneous illumination to prevent disturbing light reflections, which is of primary importance when working with glossy parts.

At the same time, the light from TANEO is flicker-free, considerably relieving eye strain. Additional characteristics of TANEO improve work results. For example, the color temperatures used (4,000 or 5,000 K) make contrasts highly visible. In addition, the high color reproduction index (approx. 85 with CPD or approx. 90 with the opal white screen) generates an extremely good presentation of colors. Because the lighting quantity is dimmable up to 10 percent, TANEO adapts easily to individual needs at the workplace. A memory function saves the last setting used.

The product is available as an arm-mounted luminaire with a large radius of action or as a system luminaire for space-saving base assembly.

The arm can be effortlessly adjusted to any position. The position of the luminaire head can also be adjusted using the highly flexible 3D head joint.

As a system luminaire, TANEO provides two space-saving and unobtrusive assembly options. The selection includes a design that is attached on both sides or a fold-out design. For example, this
