MORE LIGHTING COMFORT WITH DIMMING

The Nimbus icons MODUL Q 36 and the new CUBIC 36 are now available as surface-mounted versions with simple dimming – ideal for lighting design in existing buildings.

The Nimbus portfolio of LED luminaires has been supplemented by two surface-mounted versions: the MODUL Q 36 FRAME and CUBIC 36 FRAME. They are simple to dim and therefore ideal for high-quality lighting design in existing buildings. The new products are characterised by their minimalistic, elegant design. The two new models incorporate leading/trailing edge dimming and only require a regular wall dimmer or, alternatively, a normal push-button or rotary dimmer switch. This means that existing building installations with three-core cables can be used without any problem – a simple matter of plug-and-play.

PLUG & PLAY – CONNECT UP AND OFF YOU GO

In existing buildings it was, and sometimes still is, difficult to retrofit LED luminaires while enjoying the accustomed level of lighting comfort with a dimming system. Not all buildings are equipped with the necessary five-core cables – and not everyone is particularly keen on wireless dimming. Nimbus has now closed the gap with MODUL Q 36 FRAME and CUBIC 36 FRAME: these two surfacemounted versions enable convenient dimming with three-core cables – an efficient and integrative lighting solution.

INTEGRATIVE: A FRAME FOR THE ICON

MODUL Q 36 goes back to the very origins of the Nimbus LED luminaire. Since its launch in 2006, the minimalistic MODUL Q 36 – together with the discreet CUBIC 36 – has remained extremely popular with architects and their clients who want efficient lighting with a restrained design. The word "Frame" added to the name aptly describes the design concept behind the two surface-mounted versions: "Our icon has been given a frame," said Nimbus founder and CEO Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl referring to the surface-mounted housing with its elegant contours that now harmoniously surrounds the luminaire. "It is the fusion of luminaire and housing to form a single object that constitutes the new development."

MODUL Q 36 FRAME and CUBIC 36 FRAME are available in classic black or white; the luminaire head is made of acrylic glass and features the characteristic Nimbus design; the surface-mounted housing is made of high-quality aluminium. Combined with black, a striking contrast is created on the ceiling; combined with white, the luminaire retreats completely into the background.

THE "BRIDGE" BETWEEN THE VARIOUS NIMBUS LUMINAIRES

The elegant housing contours of MODUL Q 36 FRAME and CUBIC 36 FRAME were developed in the same style as the new Q ONE, Q FOUR and Q FOUR TT ceiling luminaires, which will be launched in autumn 2018 and, with dimensions of 128 x 128 millimetres, will have the same basis. Dietrich F. Brennenstuhl is convinced: "This basic square form with its serene and integrative design forms the bridge between our various types of luminaire and will once again give architects and lighting designers a larger playing field on which to realise their idea."

ADAPTIVE – THE ALTERNATIVE WITH EXTERNAL CONVERTER

Whereas the MODUL Q 36 FRAME and CUBIC 36 FRAME surface-mounted versions feature integrated leading/trailing edge dimming and therefore have everything "on board", Nimbus is now offering a solution for dimming – also new – with a three-core cable for just about the entire Nimbus portfolio. Here, an external 75 W central converter is used for dimming. Adaptive leading/trailing edge dimming also requires a regular push-button or rotary dimmer switch.
