Megaman Puts the Focus on Merchandise
- Published: Tuesday, 01 September 2015 12:58
The Megaman name is fast becoming synonymous with attractive and effective lighting that provides excellent colour rendering for the retail sector. Carlo is a new scoop fitting that offers a real alternative to halogen and metal halide lighting for retail applications.
Fully integrated, using Tecoh RDx modules (up to 4500 lumens), Carlo is recessed and easily adjustable to provide precision focussing that puts the light exactly where it is required.
Carlo is available with Megaman’s Perfect White technology so called because it enhances textiles, bringing the whites to life and accentuating colours. Offering superb efficacy and high energy efficiency, Megaman‘s Perfect White utilises a special phosphor coating which introduces violet light with a peak at 410nm in the near visible, non-harmful part of the spectrum - also found in natural sunlight - to provide an output that closely mimics the effect of natural daylight on white objects. Additionally, the violet element within Megaman’s Perfect White technology, leaves the rest of the spectrum unchanged - so other colours maintain their vibrancy too. The violet just excites the FWAs, producing a ‘Perfect’ white finish that not only makes the product leap out from any background but increases contrast.
CE certified, Carlo has an ultra-flexible 45 degree tilting angle with low glare for enhanced visual comfort. Available in white and silver, the luminaire is supplied complete with an external driver but can be modified for dim, non-dim and DALI operation. The superb lighting performance is good for up 50,000 hours and Carlo carries the Megaman 3 year warranty. Carlo is perfect for use in retail outlets, museums, showrooms, banks and is also an excellent choice for reception areas, exhibitions and a host of other display lighting applications.
During the last decade Megaman has established itself as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of low energy lighting solutions. All products are manufactured within Megaman’s own facilities and the company’s growth has been driven by a combination of innovative technologies, novel designs and a strong commitment to its customers.
