M-Modular – sophisticated LED systems with outstanding features for enhancing architectural spaces

Based on the ver­sa­tile M-Series, a mod­u­lar system for simple and pro­fes­sional plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion of M-Mod­u­lar LEDs for all three linear system sizes is now avail­able from Selux. These highly effi­cient light­ing solu­tions are equipped with simply replace­able LED gear trays and deliv­er­able within 15 work­ing days ex works.

Com­po­si­tion of indi­vid­ual lumi­naires, lines of light or light struc­tures are now child’s play. Intel­li­gent com­bi­na­tion options, a choice of three system widths, four lengths and six optics sys­tems plus var­i­ous colour tem­per­a­tures and hous­ing colours enable fast and reli­able plan­ning and order­ing of pre­cise light­ing solu­tions with the M-Mod­u­lar LED.

Recessed, sur­face and pen­dant ver­sions in 36 mm, 60 mm and 100 mm pro­file widths make the M-Mod­u­lar LED suit­able for uni­ver­sal use. The flex­i­ble light­ing system has a min­i­mal­ist design lan­guage and can be inte­grated into the widest vari­ety of spa­tial sit­u­a­tions. Whereas with the two Selux M-series clas­sics, the M60 and M100, the light pro­files were fur­ther devel­oped for LED use, the M36 has been devel­oped solely on the basis of LED tech­nol­ogy. Speak­ing at the market launch, Klaus-Peter Siemssen, Pres­i­dent of the Board of Selux AG in Berlin explained that With the M36, the aim was to develop a mod­u­lar light kit that was con­sis­tently aligned to the topics of energy effi­ciency, sus­tain­abil­ity and aes­thet­ics. LED tech­nol­ogy enables office work­spaces to be illu­mi­nated in accor­dance with norms using a pro!le width of just 36 mm – a quan­tum leap that opens up new pos­si­bil­i­ties for LED office light­ing design. Light Mod­u­la­tion Tech­nol­ogy“, a Selux spe­cial devel­op­ment, has been used to obtain par­tic­u­larly fresh, pre­cise dis­tri­b­u­tion of light”.

Mod­u­lar setup – inno­v­a­tive light guid­ance

The basis of the M-Mod­u­lar LED build­ing kit is four ready-to-use linear mod­ules in lengths of 890 mm, 1186 mm, 1482 mm and 2372 and an L module. The LED gear trays can be simply inserted into the durable extruded alu­minium pro­files and replaced as required. There are vir­tu­ally no limits to the design options for archi­tec­tural light­ing, whether this be linear lines of light, qua­dratic light struc­tures or L, U or S-shaped con­fig­u­ra­tions. From a light­ing tech­nol­ogy per­spec­tive too, the M-Mod­u­lar LED offers a par­tic­u­larly broad range of appli­ca­tion options with inno­v­a­tive optics and high-qual­ity acrylic and poly­car­bon­ate dif­fusers. Intel­li­gent con­nec­tors enable seam­less light most shapes and sizes.

Selux has devel­oped a spe­cial form of light guid­ance for the M36 system known as Light Mod­u­la­tion Optics (LMO). This optics system made from full pro­files ensures a uni­form appear­ance for the light exit area and pre­ci­sion light guid­ance at the same time. With LMO Wall­wash­ers, min­i­mal dis­tances can be obtained between wall and lumi­naire with extremely high levels of uni­for­mity – for instance, a light dis­tance of just 0.4 m from the wall is required for wall­wash­ing a 3m high sur­face. Require­ments for appro­pri­ate office light­ing are met by the use of a minilou­vre that has been spe­cially devel­oped for LEDs. Gen­er­ally, at up to 80 lm/​W the system is also highly energy-effi­cient.

With six optics sys­tems in total, for sym­met­ri­cal and asym­met­ri­cal beam­ing, the M-Mod­u­lar LED covers the entire range of appli­ca­tions: gen­eral light­ing in public areas, foyers, func­tional rooms and cor­ri­dors; office light­ing and homoge­nous ver­ti­cal light­ing like wall­wash­ing in muse­ums and exhi­bi­tions or light­ing of shelf areas in libraries, archives or for the retail sector.

Min­i­mal power require­ments – max­i­mum effi­ciency

Equipped with high-power LEDs in the light colours 3000K/4000K, dim­ma­ble and com­bin­able with intel­li­gent LED con­trols, the M-Mod­u­lar LED pro­vides com­po­nents for max­i­mum-effi­ciency, sus­tain­able light­ing solu­tions. For exam­ple, cor­ri­dor light­ing with M60 recessed lumi­naires using a satin dif­fuser is pos­si­ble with a min­imised power require­ment of just 2.4 W/​m2. An office space with an area of 20 m2, lit in accor­dance with norms using M36 pen­dant lumi­naires requires just under 6.2 W/​m2. These fig­ures speak for them­selves.
