MID Lighting

MID Lighting have recently had the good fortune to work on the Grade II listed building The Maltings, Princes Street, Ipswich.

MID worked in conjunction with Mark Pertwee, Pertwee Estates, Roberto Esposito, Esposito Architecture Limited, and Steve Attle and the team from Ceetech Ltd, to create a lighting design that complements the historic character of this unique 1820’s building, but with a 20th century feel.
This project provided difficult challenges which were overcome by our experienced design team incorporating up to 22 different types of luminaires to ensure we enhanced each of the buildings unique 23,000 sq ft of new office spaces.

The project was led by Donna Snell, Sales Executive, Eliot Stevens, Lighting Designer and Manny Stone, Technical Manager.


Robe Lighting

TETRAgnatha is a Linear bar building on the Spiider and Tarrantula technology.

Generating an ultra-tight 4.5° beam from each of the 18 pixels, they combine to produce a bright, defined “sheet” of light, desired by lighting designers. Seamless curtains of light can be constructed using several fixtures.

With the addition of two exclusive Robe patented MCFE™ – Multi-Coloured Flower Effects, the pixel-driven Tetra sets itself apart from others by projecting charismatic in-air animations.

The compact, detailed design, allows end to end placement on stage or truss, maintaining equal spacing between pixels. The homogenised beams, together with the smooth 10:1 zoom provide; a wash out to 45°, a footlight, a wall graze or dynamic in-air effects with fast paced sweeping movements.

Tridonic UK Ltd

The Crystal, London

Tridonic’s Second Smart Building Conference a Complete Success

In the second of a two-part conference, Tridonic has once again gathered together an amazing line-up of industry experts that specialise in the subject of Smart Buildings. The second conference entitled ‘Helping to Make Intelligent Buildings Become Smart’ took place in London on 3rd October with the aim of providing attendees with the very latest developments in this sector.

The first conference, entitled ‘Component to Solutions’ proved extremely popular with Tridonic’s OEM customers with the second event also proving to be a great success.  The first event discussed ‘how to understand your segment’ and followed the launch of the company’s new Connected Lighting Academy which has been designed to support OEM customers and help them understand more about the opportunities for connected lighting and integrated lighting solutions.

For the second event, Tridonic approached 150 consultants, developers, OEMs, architects and contractors who listened to key speakers from a variety of ‘solution provider’ companies and partners of Tridonic presenting on topics such as The Digitalisation of Buildings, Self-Powered IoT and Energy Efficient Buildings that utilise DC power from Solar panels for PoE lighting, proving that lighting really is the backbone to any smart building. Hosted by Simon Blazey UK Strategic Solution Sales Manager, the event also saw the launch of the company’s Connected Outdoor solution.  The value of this truly unique event was reflected in the status of the key speakers and the input they were able to bring to the conference.



Centralise • Optimise • Economise

The Ethernet-based iDrive® centralised LED driver range provides the optimum power solution for the increasingly smart, connected world.  iDrive® centralised LED drivers drastically simplify maintenance and are designed for installation in 19” 1U server racks in maintenance rooms, enabling easy access when required. The centralised drivers are capable of driving up to 36 individual luminaires from a single driver, up to a distance of 300m away, which is particularly advantageous for installations involving high ceilings. Remote installation of the LED driver well away from the luminaires also reduces disruption caused by maintenance downtime. The range includes constant current and constant voltage variants, with each driver supporting multiple protocols, including DALI, DMX, RDM, Ethernet, sACN & Art-Net3 and Art-O



Dual mode LED dimmer from Scolmore

Scolmore’s intelligent dimmer module eliminates flickering and is easier to control than regular dimmers. It is essentially two dimmers in one, to offer installers maximum compatibility.

With a choice of dimming modes – leading or trailing edge – installers can choose the mode that works most effectively with the LED lights they are using.

A minimum brightness setting on the Dual Mode Dimmer Module allows the minimum brightness to be adjusted, so that any flicker at the bottom end of the dimming range can be trimmed out.

Installation is much easier with the positioning of two small switches on the back of the module – one to adjust the minimum brightness, the other to adjust the dimming module.

Robe Lighting

The new ESPRITE™ LED automated luminaire from Robe, has a fast-change, low-cost, transferable light engine ingeniously solving the problem of performance longevity for those preferring the higher brightness of white source LEDs, as an obvious replacement for their aging stock of discharge workhorses.

Performance has not been compromised with the 27,000 lm fixture output producing a piercing 85,000 lux at 5m. This is enhanced by our legendary precision optics to produce crystal clear white light.
