No one would initially recognise Talo as source of light during the day, but every one would appreciate its lighting atmosphere during the night. Talo acts as an urban sculpture based on aesthetical sophistication and urban integration, exploring a new design boundary driven by simplicity and interactivity. It stands out for its ability to respond to the “Hidden technology” concept, allowing citizens to experience the best of the latest urban technology without feeling invaded and dominated by it.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
Integrar una o varias luminarias en el interior de una estructura única y compacta de diámetro 219,1 mm. Esta es la filosofía de Talo. La serie nace con tres rangos de alturas: hasta 7 m (Talo 1), hasta 9 (Talo 2) y hasta 12 m (Talo 3).
Su concepto de módulo óptico permite proyectar parte la luz trasera sobre la elipse inferior a fin de generar un efecto de balizamiento natural sin contaminación lumínica (FHD <1%). De esta forma, Talo permite integrar altos estándares de eficiencia energética y preservación del cielo con la generación de una atmósfera urbana de alta calidad.
STRUCTURE AND MATERIALS
La robustez mecánica del conjunto y la dureza de los materiales aplicados (Acero Inoxidable AISI-316L o Acero Galvanizado) proporcionan a la serie Talo un alto grado de resistencia frente a la agresividad del ambiente y el vandalismo.
A su vez, Talo integra un sistema inteligente de balizamiento continuo con ópticas LED ámbar, y actúa como soporte de un detector de presencia y sistemas LED IP68 equipados con un módulo óptico inmerso en una atmósfera inerte de gas Argón.
With the Argon Pressurised System (APS)® Talo series’ optical and electronic components are encapsulated in a pressurised atmosphere of argon gas. A watertightness level of IP68 is ensured, making the system resistant to complete and continuous immersion far beyond the requirements of any regulation.
The inert atmosphere in the optical-electronic module guards against condensation, moisture and salinity intrusion, thereby preventing an accelerated ageing process of the system’s sensitive components. This protective shield is essential in areas where air salinity is a critical lifetime factor for any optical and electronic component.
The ability of this system to preserve the lifetime, efficacy and chromatic quality of the luminaire reduces Up toal Cost of Ownership (TOC) and maintains high demanding visual comfort standards.
The Talo luminaire is based on the principle of direct thermal dissipation between the LED PCB and the compact aluminium chassis. The dissipation body comprises a continuous heat pipe of anodized aluminium, which achieves thermal conductivity levels of 160 W/metre Kelvin, compared to 130 W/metre Kelvin of aluminium injection. The low porosity of anodized aluminium plus a thermal pad over the contact surface between the PCB and the dissipation body significantly reduce the diode’s junction temperature.
The redefined composition of the optical system delivers a 55% reduction in reflection levels, a significant drop when compared with market standards that apply a secondary lens scheme and a tempered glass cover. HTS technology enables optical performance levels similar to those obtained with a direct lens system, increasing the overall efficacy of the luminaire (lm/W) by 8%.
DIMENSIONS AND INSTALLATION
The Talo luminaire is born from an integral luminaire and column project, so that this luminaire is supplied exclusively with the Talo column. With the precise and adapted design of both pieces a total integration and a clean and attractive set are achieved.
The Talo set belongs to the Gas Argon series, so it enjoys one of the most advanced technologies in LED conservation and performance. With the pine heatsink the dissipation is perfected for this closed cavity.
It is designed for a column with a diameter of 219 mm. There are 1, 2 and even more optical models according to the needs of the road and the project.
Standard Photometries. The SETGA optical department can study additional configurations adapted to each project.
