Around the world, our innovative lighting showrooms support our mission to transform the way people interact with their environments, by providing inspirational energy saving lighting solutions. We call this: the Aurora Lighting Experience, or A.L.E.X !

A.L.E.X was first conceived in 2006 at our Welwyn Garden City, UK facilities, providing conferencing, education, product testing and lighting demonstrations for up to 100 people or more from a unique conference suite known as the Light Box.

The Light Box is designed to immerse visitors in an environment where they can experience the difference between traditional and LED light sources, dimming and colour temperature. It is available for client use and equipped with the latest visual aids.

The live demonstration is supplemented by product specs and features on large wall displays that surround visitors, while application shots are projected onto the large screen at the head of the room.

A LIGHTING PERFORMANCE

An interactive ‘WOW!’ experience

At the touch of a button, the LightBox projection screen raises and electric doors open in true star Trek-style, welcoming visitors into a totally interactive facility focused on education, display, performance and testing of the four elements of lighting-power, control, lamps and luminaires.

OPTICAL INNOVATION PRECISE CONTROL

Designing and manufacturing the most effective optics reduces overall system energy consumption and outputs more light to where it’s needed.

EnFiniti™ lenses are edge-to-edge multifaceted sculptured lenses that produce low glare while providing a sparkling halogen-like appearance. They are designed to mimic traditional technology to provide the same visual look and feel we all expect. The EnFiniti lens features a 100% aperture for maximum light output and clean aesthetic appearance, providing maximum light distribution with minimal glare.

HIGHER QUALITY BRIGHTER LIGHT FOR LONGER

Thermal management is a fundamental design component that removes heat from the LED chip, providing longer life and consistent light output.

ThermoTec™ technology utilises a combination of highly efficient low temperature SMD LEDs that are bonded directly to an aluminium heatsink and surrounded by an injected thermoplastic housing. The passive cooling effect of these combined technologies work together and allow the LED chips to perform at their optimum to enable consistent performance and the quality of light to last longer. The three performance criteria are:

  • Efficacy - creating more usable light using less power
  • Lumen output – maximising light from the fitting for improved light distribution
  • Colour rendering – high CRI enhances true colours of objects and their surroundings

HIGH EFFICACY QUALITY OF LIGHT

Best-in-Class LED light sources are the most crucial component in any luminaire. The most suitable chips are selected for each and every application to guarantee high performance, long life and reliability.

High efficacy, heat efficient light sources are optimised for each application to deliver consistent quality over time. Aurora ensures the following for the highest quality light source:

  • High output single (COB) & multi-point sources (SMD)
  • Mid power Surface Mounted Device
  • Highly efficient Chip On Board
  • Accurate colour rendering (Ra >80)
  • Smooth and controlled dimming
  • Low SDCM values
  • ErP Compliant
  • LM80 Data

RELIABILITY, LIFETIME & PERFORMANCE

The engine of a luminaire - advanced, embedded ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technology drives maximum LED performance with superior dimming compatibility and reliability.

For maximum reliability and lifetime in our High Voltage solutions, we have eliminated the external driver using an advanced integrated circuit (IC) and removed the electrolytic capacitor - the weakest component in an LED downlight. An icDOB not only substantially increases lifetime and performance, it allows for the stabilisation of currents, cost reduction and overload protection.

Awards and recognitions

Over the years Aurora has received recognition for its solutions and contributions to the electrical industry. Continuing to lead with the latest in LED and IoT technology, our priority has always been, and continues to be, our customers, delivering an end-to-end solution that meets and exceeds their expectations.
