Vela Series The Vela Series is an exceptionally high-quality floodlight that can be used to illuminate areas, facades, objects and billboards, among other things. The Vela Series is produced entirely in the Netherlands, using only components and parts of the highest attainable quality. Where other LED luminaires have 30% light reduction at less than 50,000 burning hours, the Vela Series only has 10% light reduction at more than 109,000 burning hours. The Vela fixture is also completely made to measure on a project basis. With the installation of the Vela Series, the luminaires appear more focused, unwanted light pollution is reduced and energy consumption is reduced.
Exceptional quality The Vela Series is produced entirely in the Netherlands. By using only components and parts of the highest attainable quality, the Vela Series distinguishes itself with an exceptionally long service life, minimal light consumption, high energy efficiency and very high light quality. Where other LED luminaires have 30% light reduction at less than 50,000 burning hours, the Vela Series only has 10% light reduction at more than 109,000 burning hours.
Ceramic LEDs For economic reasons, LED luminaires in the current market are often equipped with LEDs made of plastic. The plastic in this "cheaper" LED serves as a reflector and heat conductor for the internal LED chips. However, the LED is not resistant to the higher temperatures that arise in applications with a lot of light. Higher temperatures in combination with the heating and cooling cycle will cause the plastic to become brittle and discolored over time, greatly reducing the reflection. As a result, the LEDs quickly lose their initial light intensity. This process, depending on the total heat management of the complete luminaire, can ensure that even within a few years, the luminaires are due for replacement because the light intensity is no longer sufficient or that luminaires fail due to a defective LED circuit.
The Vela Series is equipped with a large number of CREE High-power LEDs. The basis of these LEDs are made of a ceramic material. High temperatures and the conversion of energy to light have no influence on the ceramic. These LEDs also have no reflector that can age. These high-quality LEDs are mounted on a printed circuit board consisting of 99.6% pure aluminum, so that the LED can quickly transfer its generated heat to the aluminum housing. This engineering allows the ambient temperature to cool the entire fixture well.
