ERCO Parscan: Minimalist design
What can retail fitters learn from exhibition organisers? In both segments focus is given to staging each object individually and maximising effect. Equally, visitors must be able to navigate intuitively through the rooms thanks to architecture that is both welcoming and intriguing. With the Parscan LED spotlight ERCO offers the optimal lighting tool for this very purpose. The precise light distributions of the flexible spotlight are ideal for accentuating fashion or furniture – as well as artwork. Even architectural features can be illuminated effectively. Presenting a minimalist design, Parscan blends into any interior design concept directing the focus onto the light effect.
Flexibility and precision are key lighting requirements for the dramatic illumination of objects and architecture. To this end, ERCO has redesigned the Parscan range of spotlights completely, as an additional iconic product for LED technology. Using reliable ERCO LED platforms in this new Parscan generation enables its compact shape without compromising on a high light output. Different light distributions make the spotlight a versatile design tool for architecture – predestined for point light illumination concepts in shops and showrooms.
Minimalist design for precise illumination
The most characteristic feature of Parscan LED is its minimalist design. The sleek, cylindrical shape allows for space-saving, yet highly efficient LED photometrics. With the centrically positioned hinge on the luminaire, the luminaire head barely swivels out when rotated or tilted. Parscan, therefore, is ideal for mounting in ceiling channels. Almost completely hidden from view, the spotlight delivers magical light unobtrusively. If the spotlight is directed vertically downwards as a downlight when mounted on track, the support bracket merges into the cylindrical shape. This extends its function to include use as a minimalist downlight.
Flexible photometrics
Be it wall shelving, display cabinets or shop windows – lighting solutions in shops focus on accentuating specific products or brand features. The interchangeable Spherolit lenses with six different light distributions enable individual and precise lighting solutions for any lighting task. Deliberate brightness contrasts draw the observer’s attention automatically. The freely rotatable oval flood lens of Parscan helps create dramatic lighting effects; the oval beam of the lens is ideal for efficient illumination of long objects or different room zones for example for product ensembles, shelves, sculptures, and circulation zones. The wallwash characteristic of Parscan, meanwhile, handles vertical illuminance with perfection, allowing walls to be used optionally as exhibition space. Excellent glare control of the Parscan supports the philosophy of maximised visual comfort, promising an extraordinary experience of art and products. High power outputs of up to 48W and 6000lm make Parscan with LED an effective and efficient alternative to conventional high-pressure discharge lamps of up to 70W.

ERCO Skim LED downlight: Right to the point
With the new Skim range of recessed luminaires ERCO presents an efficient lighting tool that combines the highest standards of glare control with an affordable price. Skim offers an elegant solution for the architectural challenge of providing public areas and office premises with creatively ambitious lighting that meets the required standards. To date, homogeneous light tailored to computer workstations has been generated using conventional linear fluorescent and louvred luminaires. Their disadvantage: The linear structure of these products tends to dominate the ceiling appearance. As its main strong point, Skim features a specially developed lens system that provides efficient and ergonomic light, yet also creates an elegant light effect in the reflector. With wide flood and oval flood as its two characteristics, it aptly meets the stringent requirements of efficient visual comfort. The remarkably linear light emitted by the round downlight of the oval flood version is created by the complex asymmetrically shaped polymer lens with special light distribution. As a new, highly efficient entry-level product, ERCO now offers an economical solution to office and general lighting.
Innovative LED lens technology
Skim owes its powerful light with superior glare control to efficient and innovative photometrics. The lenses made of optical polymer combine with high-quality LED modules to generate an exceptionally uniform light distribution. The precisely matched free-form lens systems are moulded into a convex shape to enable glare control that meets the most stringent standards. The two lens versions allow Skim to meet different lighting requirements. The wide flood version with its wide-beam light distribution generates a clear light with flood characteristic for applications such as open-plan offices or workstations, foyers or stores. The oval flood lens with its axially symmetrical light distribution, meanwhile, is a low-cost solution for ellipsoid lighting that lends itself to the illumination of corridors, traffic zones or tables.
Unobtrusive design for optimum visual comfort
Skim combines innovative LED lens technology with clarity of style: compactness and a flat design give the recessed luminaire an air of lightness and elegance. In addition, the white plastic anti-glare cone ensures a harmonious, unobtrusive appearance in the ceiling. With a shallow recess depth of only 110 mm the downlight is easy to install in areas with limited installation space simply by using the folding spring fixture. As a result, Skim integrates discreetly in any interior concept.
Technical features of Skim ERCO lens system:
Optical polymer, light distributions: wide flood or oval flood, 18/28W ERCO LED module: High-power LEDs on metal core PCB, light colours: warm white or neutral white, 3000 or 4000K Unified Glare Rating: For workplace lighting from UGR 15.7 Control gear: Switchable or DALI dimmable Housing: Cast aluminium, designed as heat sink, folding spring fixing for ceiling thickness max. 40mm
