AAA-LUX introduces Generation 6 LED floodlightingHow to get a head position in top sports
It’s a bonafide success story. In 2009, AAA-LUX, from an office in Eindhoven, Netherlands, had a world scoop. Within 8 years it gained a head position in LED Sports field lighting. With the introduction of 6th generation of LED floodlights, this company expects to further expand this position.
Still, people in Eindhoven have to scratch their heads sometimes. They have taken a prominent position with football clubs in the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga, the Italian A-Series and within the Dutch football world so quickly. But also in other professional sports, such as the French basketball champions team Asvel, the Roger Federer Tennis Arena or Belgium’s David Cup stadium. These are just some examples of top sports environments the AAA-LUX is being applied.Not just a floodlight
For the general public, the larger stadiums attract the eye, with the strongly up-and-coming Show lighting. “Of course we do that kind of lighting on a regular basis, but more often we aim our arrows on the training accommodation. For example, take a look at a club like Schalke04”, Erik Swennen, AAA-LUX' CEO says. “They have a need for better lighting at lower costs, so LED is the solution. We then excel in the ability to use the already existing infrastructure, for example, the existing lighting columns. Normally, LED is heavier and bigger than conventional floodlights, to be able to cool down the heat. However, AAA-LUX in 2009 made the principal choice of designing lightweight and small floodlights. This explains the special shape of the fittings. Not one big light box, but several spots which together form one spotlight.”
Swennen tells us: “People often really don't think about it, for them floodlights are something simple. And that is how it should be. However, there are a considerable amount of smart tactics and techniques needed to enable this luminaire in LED. Therein we are a specialist.”Accessible for the recreational sports.
The above example that is used, is a nice bridge to the recreational sports, because the used infrastructure - the type and positioning of the lighting columns - is comparable. In every town or village you can find multiple sports accommodations where people practice their sports. Realizing cost reduction in such places, is a pure necessity. Sports clubs have to get their budget in order and because their lighting will on average be switched on 400 to 1000 hours a year, this reduction in costs plays a major role.
The investment in LED lighting can be overseen when all lighting columns and wiring can be retained. With AAA-LUX’s smart design, their product very often fits perfectly within the technical limitations of the existing infrastructure. AAA-LUX has thus made LED lighting available for more clubs, including those with a smaller budget. Swennen: “Partly thanks to the good uniformity of the lighting and smart techniques in, for example, the electronics, the control of the floodlights or the limiting of light pollution, ensures that we win many projects.”Gen6: Keeping ahead of the game.
Other company’s worldwide haven’t failed to notice this. There have been multiple attempts at copying the AAA-LUX’s design basics. Therefore, it is important to maintain at the lead position. For this reason, AAA-LUX introduces its 6th generation (Gen6). A fixture which is lighter and less wind resistance than ever before. Naturally, it will fit existing lighting columns even better because of the above. Moreover, the spotlight is elegant and yet robust. “It is already called the ‘V8 Engine’ under the LED floodlights”, according to Swennen, referring to the 8 LED modules that form one floodlight. "An obvious comparison if you look at its tough shape. However, that's not the case in terms of energy consumption of course"Smart Monitoring
In addition, AAA-LUX is introducing a brand-new operating system, under the name ‘Control Box 2.0’. “Simplicity in installation and use, that is what’s important. But we see many opportunities in offering user comfort. This is expressed through a touchscreen, or app (with the suitable name ‘AAApp’), but especially in the way in which the complete lighting system in being monitored“, says Swennen.
Customers get insights into both energy consumption and the technical state of the lighting 24/7. When a fixture slowly gets hotter because, for example, a bird decided to build its nest on it, the system observes it and action can be taken to prevent a fixture from being damaged. Swennen: “The feeling that the lighting system is being monitored is something that is greatly appreciated by our customers.”Scale size increases
That AAA-LUX is being appreciated, is evident when we look at their results. They deliver more than 200 projects per year on 5 different continents and these projects are becoming ever more large and striking.
For example, a training complex for the FIFA World Cup or a huge golf course, with a number of floodlights with which you could easily illuminate five UEFA Champions League stadiums. Or ski slopes with a comparable size. “The scale is increasing enormously”, says a proud and smiling Swennen.
The new building that was put into use last year is already cracks in the seams. Currently, possibilities to expand are being explored. Because in addition to lighting sports fields, AAA-LUX also focuses on industrial lighting, also with high and big lighting columns in, for example, ports, airports and large parking lots.
“Things can move forward in a staggering tempo”, Swennen says with a sense of understatement. “And we expect a lot from our 6th generation of AAA-LUX LED floodlights.”
