The doors to Light+Building 2018 in Frankfurt am Main opened between 18 and 23 March 2018. 2700 exhibitors presented their newest innovations to the world in the realms of lighting, electrical engineering, home and building automation, and security technology.
The RP Group occupied a stand of 140 m² on which they presented their emergency and safety luminaires with innovative LED and wireless technology as well as all they have to offer in the area of general-purpose luminaires. Three of this years highlights were:
Our award-winning GERMAN DESIGN AWARD A series. In a separate area, the zinc die-cast luminaires were presented in all their variations. The visitors were amazed by the even illumination of the pictogram, guaranteed by a photometrically calculated dot matrix grid printed directly on to the glass.
The RP Developers had a further triumph in the A series: The duo technology luminaires also offer downward light emission, thanks to an additional LED on the housing. Perfect for lighting areas around doorways and passages.
Visitors were also treated to demonstrations of the innovative, cable-free, luminaire monitoring Wireless Professional (and Basic), showing how the control and monitoring of single-battery emergency and safety luminaires becomes child's play. There are no faulty connections as BUS cabling is not necessary. Particular interest was shown in the email alerts that are sent to the system administrator for regular system updates but also in the event of a fault occurring.
And in the area of general-purpose luminaires, the RP Group presented the CASAMBI Inside. An app that controls and programs luminaires. What's special about it? No central unit is required. The luminaires are automatically connected through Bluetooth Low Energy. Modules and luminaires form a network and communicate with each other. The innovators visiting the stand recognised the advantages of CASAMBI Inside immediately and took advantage of all the information that was made available to them.
It's fair to say that Light+Building was a complete success for the RP Group. We'd like to thank all visitors for coming to see us, and for engaging us in such exciting conversations.
