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.
