New planning tools for the Selux Olivio and Astro product families
The new online configurators by the lighting manufacturer Selux are digital planning tools available for several modular product ranges, which guide users in just a few steps through the myriad of combinations to arrive at a product for which an order can be placed. Following successful launch of the configurator for the M-Modular LED construction kit system, Selux has now developed the online tool for the highly complex Olivio family of exterior luminaires. In addition, a new configurator is available for Astro pole-top luminaires.
Having undergone evolutionary development to include additional LED and RGBW options and with more than 2000 options to choose from, Olivio is regarded as one of the most complex families of exterior luminaires on the market. The challenge in developing the online configurator for the Olivio system-based family of luminaires, which has been tried and tested in numerous rigorous projects, was to make it possible to discover all its options in playful fashion yet at the same time to provide precise information for professional lighting planners.
Operation of the Olivio configurator, which was awarded the silver prize at the Annual Multimedia Awards 2015, is highly-intuitive. After selecting from the three design lines (Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra) users can choose and modify the pole and mounting heights, layout, number and size of luminaire heads and tilt settings simply by means of dragging and dropping, including via touch-sensitive interfaces.
The next step is to select the type of illuminant, light distribution, light colour and power, after which users are provided with a specification and lighting technology recorded in a data sheet and DFX files that are available via download. Just one click is then all that is required for users to request their personal quotation.
Modular Astro LED pole-top luminaires were presented to the public at the Light+Building trade fair for the first time in 2014. Their design was developed in cooperation with the multiple-award winning design bureau in Stuttgart, Phoenix Design. With its timeless appearance and numerous configuration options, the lighting technology and shape of the Astro make it a ground-breaking solution for the numerous requirements of urban spaces.
The Astro family was developed using a modular system philosophy and offers a multitude of customisation and combination options. Users can now compose these as easy as pie in just a few steps using the new Astro online configurator. For each specific project, configuration of the desired luminaire versions is straightforward using individual, concise images. Users can select from a choice of two pole-top connections, three diffusers, various optics systems, different light colours and optional LED rings for ambient lighting. In addition they can incorporate photographs and illustrations from the project to ensure a realistic simulation of their selected luminaires.
