Pallas - Optimal light for tough conditions

The Pallas is a ceil­ing-mounted lumi­naire by Selux that superbly demon­strates how to com­bine stur­di­ness, aes­thet­ics and light qual­ity. Its espe­cially low pro­file com­plies with pro­tec­tion class IP65 and is suit­able for all appli­ca­tions where a higher pro­tec­tion class is essen­tial. The lumi­naire com­bines opti­mal, non-glare light qual­ity with high effi­ciency and a highly styl­ish look.

Being tough, resis­tant to tem­per­a­ture extremes, dirt and van­dal­ism are just some of the chal­lenges faced by lumi­naires. Besides this, there is reli­able oper­a­tion, then they need to be eco­nom­i­cal, user-friendly and pro­vide a high qual­ity of light that ensures opti­mal visual com­fort. The new ceil­ing-mounted lumi­naire Pallas by Selux com­bines all these qual­i­ties into a par­tic­u­larly dis­tinct design. Like all Selux lumi­naires, the extremely flat Pallas boasts an ingen­u­ous design right down to the most minor details, includ­ing assem­bly and con­nec­tion.

A value-enhanc­ing nov­elty – three light dis­tri­b­u­tions
The Pallas by Selux pro­vides new options when it comes to the real­i­sa­tion of spe­cific light­ing require­ments. The lumi­naire is avail­able in the light colours 3,000 K and 4,000 K for instance, each of which comes with three options for direc­tional char­ac­ter­is­tics.

The sym­met­ri­cally beam­ing ver­sion with its homo­ge­neous light dis­tri­b­u­tion and pre­mium qual­ity light exit area is suit­able for stan­dard appli­ca­tions such as gen­eral light­ing of public areas. The sym­met­ri­cal, wide-beam­ing ver­sion can be used for the illu­mi­na­tion of broader traf­fic areas where a high level of uni­for­mity is required such as on plat­forms or in traf­fic areas with high number of users. The asym­met­ri­cal, diag­o­nally-beam­ing ver­sion enables single-sided light dis­tri­b­u­tion for illu­mi­na­tion of hor­i­zon­tal sur­faces from lumi­naires arranged at edges or on bor­ders such as over plat­form edges or on tran­si­tions from ceil­ings to walls.This flex­i­bil­ity enables con­sis­tent light solu­tions to be achieved in the widest vari­ety of sit­u­a­tions using the same lumi­naire type – in the form of indi­vid­ual lumi­naires or light strip arrange­ments.

Highly effi­cient, extra tough
With a con­struc­tion height of just 60 mm, the Pallas is avail­able in three lengths and con­sti­tutes a new bench­mark for the design of robust, ceil­ing-mounted lumi­naires. Its slim design is enabled by lat­eral radi­a­tion of the LEDs in the lumi­naire hous­ing for a glare­less light exit that is uni­form across the entire sur­face, thereby increas­ing visual com­fort con­sid­er­ably. With the highly effi­cient Pallas, fewer lumi­naires are required lead­ing to lower invest­ment and oper­at­ing costs.

The Pallas owes its stur­di­ness to its clev­erly con­ceived design and pre­mium qual­ity mate­ri­als – with extruded alu­minium end caps made from die-cast alu­minium and light area dif­fusers made from safety glass or poly­car­bon­ate. This makes the Pallas suit­able for use in tough envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions such as in under­passes, wait­ing areas or sta­tions. The Pallas will per­form strongly wher­ever a high pro­tec­tion class is required, in dusty, hot or cold envi­ron­ments or areas at risk of van­dal­ism.

Quick assem­bly – light strips and more besides
As well as its qual­ity of light and mate­ri­als, the Pallas also incor­po­rates impres­sive assem­bly options, par­tic­u­larly in com­bi­na­tion with its media car­rier. This pro­filed car­rier is up to 4,800 mm long and allows the for­ma­tion of a con­tin­u­ous light strip using var­i­ous light dis­tri­b­u­tions. Assem­bly is incred­i­bly simple since all ele­ments are merely latched into the alu­minium media car­rier and then locked on both sides with rotary pro­tec­tion locks. As well as being for through-wiring of light strips, the media car­rier can be used for instal­la­tion of addi­tional cables, speak­ers, sen­sors or cam­eras. This means indi­vid­ual ele­ments can be replaced quickly or their func­tions adapted. This turns the Pallas into an inte­gra­tive prod­uct with options that go far beyond the tra­di­tional scope and func­tions of a lumi­naire.
