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.
