Room concepts are becoming increasingly multifunctional and, not least, lighting must adapt to this new flexibility. This presents conventional lighting systems with new challenges more and more often. Lighting concepts can be completely different depending on the use of the room, the time of year or even the time of day, but cannot be adapted due to the lack of flexibility of the lighting systems. One moment, accent lighting is sufficient and the next, a completely different lighting scene is desired. In museums, for example, exhibit positions are changed spatially or occasional customer events are held to which the lighting needs to be adjusted. In the catering trade, normal catering during the day and then a customer event in the evening. Or in meeting rooms, sometimes a lecture followed by a panel discussion. The number of application examples for multifunctional room and lighting concepts is constantly growing, and with it the need for a flexibly adaptable lighting system.
This is precisely why GLP, in cooperation with Zumtobel, has combined its expertise in event technology and professional architectural lighting to develop the AGILIO product series. With a high-quality white light LED source and very high colour rendering, the new multifunctional washlight is the perfect choice for flexible lighting tasks involving sensitive objects. The specially calculated zoom optics of the head-mounted fixture provide a very homogeneous light field that can be motor-adjusted from narrow to wide. This allows lighting tasks to be carried out with exactly the amount of light required and at a perfectly adjusted beam angle. In addition, the spotlight can be motorised in the swivel and tilt directions so that it is up to any lighting task. Gone are the days of manual spotlight adjustment on the ladder. Especially in multifunctional applications such as trade fairs, gastronomy, shops and retail, there are not only endless possibilities - the AGILIO offers enormous savings potential thanks to its motorised flexibility, making it particularly economical. Potential savings in personnel costs and lifting platforms as well as time savings make it possible for the AGILIO spotlights to pay for themselves in a very short time. The special design was developed by the renowned luminaire manufacturer Zumtobel and, like all other products made by Zumtobel, has been specially adapted to the design requirements of the architectural market. In addition to three different light source colour temperatures of 4,000, 5,700 and 3,400 Kelvin, the AGILIO is available in two control versions. The first version is the AGILIO CRMX / iQ.Mesh, which can also be controlled via the standard Lumenradio CRMX protocol, which allows DMX data to be sent wirelessly to the unit. This type of control is perfect if the unit is to be integrated into an existing DMX network or show setup.
The second version is the AGILIO DoP / iQ.Mesh, which can additionally be controlled via the new GLP DoP technology (DMX over Powerline). GLP DoP technology makes it possible to use any existing powerline or busbar system without laying an additional data line or using a data bus that is already in use. With this technology, the DMX signal is simply modulated onto existing power lines and immediately evaluated by the spotlight. Thus, this system can easily be retrofitted into any existing power system.
Both versions also offer control via GLP iQ.Mesh technology, where the spotlights can be conveniently set up and controlled via the AGILIO smartphone or tablet app available free of charge for Android or iOS.
