The light­ing per­forms the tide levels of the river Rhine as a vis­i­ble sign. The sensor system per­forms – white – for stan­dard levels and – red – for high tide with yellow and orange in between. The more the crys­tal-like back­lit cube is filled with red light, the higher is the tide. The façade light­ing is made of an extruded pro­file as a trim­less light line RGB-LED IP 67 to be attached at the façade car­ri­ers and is through­wired in IP 67. The light­lines are adapted to mod­u­larly uni­forn dis­tances between the LEDs for a max­i­mum uni­for­mity of light pos­si­ble. The con­vert­ers for feed in IP67 at 24V DC, are pre­pared for EUTRAC®DALI/-EIB con­trol.
