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.
