Rethinking the installation of LED lighting

Isotera, LED lighting

Isotera has developed a system for LED lighting installations that enables luminaires to be connected to their power supply without having to strip cables and make connections to every fitting. There is also no need for a separate driver for every type of LED fitting.

The concept is based on a Power Hub with an output of 200 W that interfaces the mains supply with the cable run to the LED fittings. An Isotera Coupler (pictured) is clipped to this cable run without piercing the insulation to deliver power to an LED fitting. The picture makes the process clear. The connection to the LED fitting is via the small plug at the bottom corner.

Not shown in the picture is a control unit that can be plugged into the Coupler to control all the fittings served by the Power Hub.

The power cable is double insulated, so separate containment is not needed.

The contactless system makes it easy to ‘disconnect’ fittings and reposition them as required.

The system wastes little energy as the Couplers are 95% efficient and the Power Hub is 97% efficient.
