More light for safety and good visibility
Certain outdoor areas need to be very brightly lit in the evening and at night. This applies in particular to commercial areas with high requirements in terms of health and safety at work as well as property protection. Good examples of this are airports, container ports or outdoor industrial facilities, as well as parking lots. The brightness and efficiency of area lighting also plays an important role in sports venues. In addition to safety aspects, good visibility for athletes and spectators and excellent lighting conditions for video and photo shoots are also important here.

Great improvements compared to conventional lighting methods
Even for small and medium-sized outdoor facilities, particularly bright area lighting can bring many advantages. High-performance and energy-efficient LED components from Inventronics ensure that operations can continue to run smoothly in the evening or at night. They also help to prevent accidents, theft and even robberies – for example in outdoor commercial areas, at filling stations or in parking lots. Small or medium-sized sports facilities such as training grounds, skate parks, basketball, tennis or badminton courts and winter sports facilities such as ice hockey rinks or skiing slopes also benefit from our state-of-the-art LED technology. Compared to conventional methods, it provides very good – and on top of that dimmable – lighting that saves a lot of electricity. But how exactly does it all work and which devices do you need to make it happen? Read on and learn more about it here!

OT 4DIM G3 LED driver: Saving energy and costs thanks to the dimming function
The OPTOTRONIC 4DIM G3 LED driver from Inventronics is perfect for area lighting with low to medium-height masts, e. g. in parking lots or public parks, as well as for lighting small to medium-sized sports fields, e. g. tennis courts or skate parks. To save electricity in such places, the device offers a choice of four different dimming methods, with StepDIM (i. e. dimming via a second mains line) and dimming via DALI protocol being the two most important ones for these application areas. This means that the driver can be switched to the desired dimming method at any time. And it makes it particularly easy to adapt the dimming function of the driver to the application at hand, for example when modernizing existing systems. Added to this are a very attractive price/performance ratio, an output current accuracy of 3 %, high overvoltage protection of up to 10 kV and integrated temperature management (“Driver Guard”), which ensures a long service life for the devices, especially when used outdoors.

OT DEXAL G2 LED drivers: Particularly future-proof thanks to intelligent interfaces
The OPTOTRONIC DEXAL G2 from Inventronics offers a high degree of flexibility. With this future-proof, D4i- certified LED driver, existing small or medium-sized area or sports lighting systems can be converted to modern LED lighting without too much effort. Thanks to intelligent, standardized interfaces, the device enables the integration of wirelessly controllable D4i sensors or light management control nodes at any time – either from the very beginning or as an upgrade at a later date. And all without having to replace or modify the luminaires. This opens up a new dimension in control and monitoring, which can be used for predictive maintenance and reducing power consumption, for example. This means that the electricity and maintenance costs of the system can be kept consistently low. And thanks to this, the investment costs also quickly pay for themselves. In addition, the luminaires can be configured and controlled wirelessly via our tried-and-tested HubSense system, simply by using a smartphone or tablet. The OT DEXAL G2 also impresses with its improved resistance to overvoltage and electrostatic discharge as well as with its more compact housing. And its larger operating window streamlines warehousing, as one driver can be used for several light profiles. In addition, a powerful NFC antenna facilitates programming from the top of the driver, making it easier to access during production or during maintenance in the field. And last but not least, this device also scores highly in terms of sustainability: Its housing is made from 80 % recycled plastic, with the housing material also supporting the recycling process at the end of the product’s service life.

QBM D4i LS/PD P Z sensors: Light only where and when it is needed
Especially in small and medium-sized outdoor lighting systems, the use of modern sensor technology can make all the difference: With presence sensors, the light can be dimmed accordingly or switched off completely wherever there is no permanent operation. And light sensors can be programmed so that the light is only switched on when the available daylight alone is no longer sufficient to ensure safety and good visibility – a clever energy-saving strategy that works particularly well in outdoor areas. With various D4i-certified QBM devices, Inventronics offers a very robust sensor portfolio for outdoor applications that is perfectly matched to OT DEXAL G2. These include, for example, PIR sensors such as the QBM D4i PD P Z and light-controlled sensors such as the QBM D4i LS P Z.
