99 COLOURS

Assessment of the colour rendition.

99 colours instead of 8. Here more is simply MORE. More colour. Best white. We have optimized our assessment procedure for lighting quality: besides the CRI, we use the TM-30-15 method. It was developed in 2015 by the Illumination Engineering Society of America (IES) as an assessment method for the color rendering of LEDs. TM-30-15 describes the colour rendering of an LED using the indicators colour fidelity and colour saturation with 99 test colours. Many of these colours are saturated.

TM-30-15
RA / CRI

Ra and CRI
according to CIE 13.3

8 test colours for Ra: pastel shades between antique pink and lilac for the general index.

14 test colours for Re: To the Ra further 6 colours are added, 4 of them are saturated. All 14 colours result in the extended index.

TM-30-15
according to IES

The spectral composition of the lighting is the key to better quality in lighting. Why measure the colour rendering of a light source therefore only with 8 or 14 colours if we can also do so with 99 colours? Expanding the number of reference colours to those 99 that the human eye can perceive, was the logical step in the LED age. The TM-30-15 assessment method introduces additional accuracy in design: so that we can add to the optimum lighting scene setting at the point of sales by an even more effective selection of luminaires with colour rendering in line with needs, high brilliance and depth of field for you and your customers.

The chip in an LED (light-emitting diode) converts electric energy via electroluminescence into light. The complex and customized interplay between semi-conductor crystal and the fluorescent conversion layer above it defines the LED module as a "package". The customized composition of this package also plays a part in deciding on the quality, colour rendition, colour saturation and depth of field of the lighting. BRILLIANT COLOUR and EFFICIENT WHITE: our LED modules in unprecedented specification are the result of intensive research and development.

The colour rendering index CRI comprises, according to DIN 6169, only eight specified test colours consisting of pastel shades between antique rose and lilac. This so-called Ra was later supplemented in order, for example, to be able to better assess a saturated red (R 9): The extended CRI (Re) therefore includes six additional colours: red, yellow, green, blue, plus pink (flesh colour) as well as leaf green. The ideal value for the most natural colour rendering is in the case of the CRI generally 100. Already on the basis of the two indices Ra and Re it becomes clear: equal or similar CRI values do not automatically mean that the colour rendering of a light source is equal or similar. It is only the graph that makes the differences clear in detail.

TM-30-15. Two key figures, new standards.

With the TM-30-15 method, the qualitative colour performance of an LED can be described better. In the assessments of colour rendering according to TM-30-15, we work with two important key figures: the Fidelity Index (Rf) and the Gamut Index (Rg). These values make it possible for us, in combination with the classic CRI, to precisely map the complex interplay of all factors of excellent lighting.

The Fidelity Index (Rf) provides information on the colour accuracy of the light spectrum that is emitted and rendered by a light source. This colour fidelity is determined with 99 test colours (CES colours) with a possible maximum value of 100. As a rule, the fidelity value is lower than the classic CRI since a calculated mean value is formed from 99 colours and not only from 8 or 14.

The Gamut Index (Rg) describes the colour saturation of an LED. The colour saturation of a natural light source such as the sun serves as a reference for the assessment of the artificial light source. An LED can, in this comparison, show a saturation of more than 100. The LED module BRILLIANT COLOUR shows in all colour areas not only homogeneous colour saturation, but even achieves a higher saturation in all colours. Especially in the challenging red shades, BRILLIANT COLOUR achieves best results: it is this extra colour performance of the LED module that generates the radiant brilliance on the product that retail needs and demanded.

Representation of the colour saturation of an LED in comparison to the natural reference light source (white line). The Gamut Index (Rg) alone cannot provide a statement about the colour saturation. Only in combination with the graphic representation is an objective assessment possible here.

EXCELLENTLY CLEAR

The new reflector technology: 3D facets yield brilliance.

Thanks to patented reflector technology, we use light in its spectrum in a new quality. In the interplay with our natural light colours, an excellent mixing of light and the new brilliance in the lighting at the POS are obtained.

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY

Also in the reflector technology we go one step further. Since lighting quality is always an interplay of several factors and building blocks. Besides the quality of the LED we have optimized the light guidance for goods accentuation: we succeed in that with a new generation of patented reflectors and their characteristic progression from ring to groove structure. This unique 3D facetted structure of the Oktalite reflectors yields unprecedented clear light imaging without colour shifts for more naturalness in the store.

That is new: in the case of an LED luminaire the  
lamp does not project into the reflector like a rod, but is located flat on a circuit board at the light emission aperture of the reflector. The light shines only in one direction upwards instead of all around. We are the first to take that into account. The classic LED reflectors have remained the same in the final finish and are structured everywhere in the same way, roughly like the eye of an insect. However, like that, LED light cannot be guided in an optimum way.  Our approach is innovative: we have looked at the LED from the viewpoint of the reflector with the question: how can I guide the light emitted in a perfect way?

We have developed our reflector precisely for what is special about the LED. In doing so, we were able to make use of the rule that the light can always be well guided if the light source itself is almost point-shaped. And that is exactly how our facets are made: close to the LED they have a ring structure, further away they show a grooved structure. In the middle of the reflector there is a progression from a ring to a groove structure: in that way we achieve a better and, above all, controlled guidance of the light onto goods, products and surfaces.

Creating a clear core light with only little scattered light – that is always our aim. The art of the generation of quality light consists in controlling and combining these two different kinds of light in keeping with requirements. And that is exactly what we have succeeded in with our new reflectors. With this innovation we are moving ahead in the market. And we provide you with a significant plus point in lighting.

The best thing in this case is that Oktalite can offer these building blocks of new lighting quality in a bundled form – and they can be applied to almost our entire portfolio. And naturally also to every special edition.

LED module
The extra performance with BRILLIANT COLOUR and EFFICIENT WHITE.

Unique reflector
The innovator with clear light guidance.

Thermal management
Designed for optimum LED performance.

Two optimized LED modules and unique reflectors enrich our standard range. Thanks to the modular structure of our luminaires we hence achieve a maximum level of design freedom. That is lighting quality according to dimensions and requirements.

The driver is also a decisive module for the best lighting quality. An LED is nowadays very sensitive; it directly also absorbs power fluctuations. If the driver supplies pure current without alternating current components, the LED power is not subject to any fluctuations either, and it is flicker-free. The level of the ripple current and its frequency are decisive as regards how strong the flickering of the LED, that is harmful to health in the long term, is felt to be.

ONE STEP AHEAD

Especially in the fashion area it is important to attract the customers to the range with the help of quality lighting. LED module BRILLIANT COLOUR now accentuates colours and materials even more expressively and at the same time on the whole more consistently. Red shades particularly have an intense effect without being garish. With this new lighting quality, homogeneous light mixing and additional authenticity and colour brilliance on the illuminated goods are obtained.

White conveys the spirit of the times and stands for freshness, newness and for urbanity. This trend colour now gains emotional radiance with EFFICIENT WHITE. Since our new natural light colour brings a new feel-good whiteness over the area and creates a high quality, elegant atmosphere in the modern store.

Ambient light, illumination of the back wall and accentuation of the goods: what strategic lighting can achieve today, is shown by Oktalite's quality lighting in use: the clear light imaging for every requirement has a defined effect and is at the same time unagitated. Cool, calm and with visual comfort, the ensemble of goods invitingly attracts the customer's attention.

This is scenery that you want to be in the middle of: contrast and optimum colour rendition distinguish quality lighting setting the scene for the range. As a result of the new depth of field a special feeling of space is obtained. Creating artificial light as naturally as possible, that is one of our aspirations. Other ones involve the orientation of the customer by means of lighting and the emotionalization of the POS.

In the case of men's fashion everything depends on good differentiation. Dark colours such as blue, grey, green and black need to be perceived well also in the team. Every colour is to be emphasized in its effect alongside the others at the same time. With our building blocks: a new LED module such as BRILLIANT COLOUR, our powerful light guidance reflectors and a sophisticated concept of ambient and accent lighting, this interplay succeeds as an authentic goods presentation over an attractive area.
