Now simpler than ever: wireless light management
Via the Swarm function luminaires with integrated control units from OSRAM – i.e. DALI ACU BT, DALIeco BT and DALIeco BT RTC – can now share presence information: wirelessly, simply via Bluetooth. This makes it really easy to set up an interconnected lighting system without a central control unit.
Versatility at a new level for the easy design of lighting concepts and luminaires
If you want to realize brilliant lighting concepts with a maximum of flexibility, the 24V TEC Flex product family offers a portfolio that leaves nothing to be desired. In addition to a wide range of luminous fluxes and color temperatures for white light, RGB and Tunable White versions are now available.
In times of Corona, hygiene is of great importance. Especially in public spaces and in local traffic, every touch can be one too many. Therefore, cities and municipalities are looking for solutions to disinfect surfaces that are used by many people. Now escalators in Munich's subway, more precisely at Marienplatz, are also being equipped with special technology to effectively disinfect their handrails.
These devices will eliminate 99 percent of the germs on the handrails.
Question: What technology is used to disinfect the escalator handrails?
a) The handrails are cleaned in a disinfection bath and then dried immediately by heat lamps.
b) The escalator is briefly heated to a high temperature inside with IR lamps and cooled down again using the countercurrent principle.
c) In the return section of the escalator, the handrail is continuously irradiated with UV-C light.
