Reduction to the essentials: Xea — the ultra-flat LED luminaire by Selux. Bringing elegance and visual comfort to offices.

This is how the absolute essence of a lumi­naire for offices or other work­spaces looks: a min­i­mal­ist hous­ing, del­i­cately sus­pended or directly mounted on a ceil­ing, effus­ing glare-free light. With the new pen­dant and sur­face-mounted Xea lumi­naire by Selux the con­verter and LED light­ing tech­nol­ogy is inte­grated into a pro­file just 18 mm high ensur­ing ele­gance, effi­ciency and per­fect visual com­fort for work­sta­tions.

Under­stand­ably, light plan­ners and con­struc­tors prefer lumi­naires for offices and work­ing envi­ron­ments to be as flat pos­si­ble. The new pen­dant and sur­face-mounted Xea lumi­naires by Selux fulfil this need for min­i­mal­ist design with max­i­mum con­sis­tency using inno­v­a­tive LED tech­nol­ogy. Extruded alu­minium pro­files form a hous­ing just 18 mm high viewed from the side. Pre­cisely defined edges and a flush real glass dif­fuser are key fea­tures of its ele­gant design with all system or depen­dent ele­ments in die-cast alu­minium. Pre­mium white sur­faces with invis­i­ble lock­ing sys­tems empha­sise the appear­ance of qual­ity.

Inte­grated, extremely flat con­verter

The Xea’s ultra flat con­struc­tion is made pos­si­ble first and fore­most by the use of a bespoke , low pro­file con­verter for its high-per­for­mance LED power supply, which enables the entire elec­tron­ics unit to be inte­grated into the alu­minium hous­ing. Oper­at­ing con­di­tions are ideal, mean­ing the Xea requires no addi­tional exter­nal con­verter hous­ing. The Xea pen­dant lumi­naire uses wire sus­pen­sions with a trans­par­ent power supply cable, both of which add to its del­i­cate appear­ance.

Micro­prisms for anti-glare pro­tec­tion in the work­place

Selux light­ing tech­nol­ogy in the new Xea lumi­naires com­plies with require­ments for all light­ing tasks in work­ing and office envi­ron­ments. A lens optics system with multi-layer micro­prisms is located behind the glass dif­fuser, which reduces both direct and reflected glare (e.g. from com­puter screens) and ensures stan­dards-com­pli­ant , state-of-the-art visual com­fort for work­sta­tions. To coor­di­nate and dif­fer­en­ti­ate its light­ing con­cept, Xea is avail­able with LEDs in the light colours 3000 or 4000 Kelvin and there is a choice of direct or direct/​indirect beam­ing vari­ants for the pen­dant lumi­naire. Of course Xea can also be dimmed for added energy effi­ciency via DALI and is capa­ble of being inte­grated into modern light man­age­ment scenes.
