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.

Olivio con­fig­u­ra­tor with numer­ous options for vari­a­tions

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.

Your per­son­alised Astro con­fig­u­ra­tion in just a few steps

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.
