The Aurora Sola M10 range of LED downlighting is marketed by Aurora as being ‘The World’s Most Advanced Integrated Fire Rated Downlight’ featuring many of their proprietory innovations to ensure the highest possible lighting performance.
- 40,000 Hours Life TO 70% Lumen Maintenance (L70)
- LED Chroic – each of its 10 Watts products up to 60 Halogen like lumens – created by the diamond like micro facets of the LEDChroic TM Lens. Minimal glare and a high colour rendering index (CRI) of 82 make the M10 range an excellent replacement for halogen downlighting
- Crystal Cool – next generation thermal management
- 5 Year Warranty – register your purchase from Trading Depot with Aurora and you are able to obtain a five year guarantee
Aurora FastFix is a rapid install system, with loop-in and loop out terminals making wiring and installation for the professional electrician straightforward and quick. The FASTFIX™ connector is a versatile lock and release electrical connector. Fully inclosed, it complies with I.E.E wiring regulations. Aurora has designed the FASTFIX™ connector with large terminals for easy wiring, plus cable clamps for positive cable restraint. Fully tested by Nemco, our FASTFIX™ connectors are a safe solution for permanent electrical connections in fixed installations.
- Connect the wiring mains to the primary section of our FASTFIX™ connector
- Conduct necessary insulation and resistance testing
- Connect downlight to the secondary section of the FASTFIX™ connector
CrystalCool™ Thermal Management
Aurora’s CrystalCool™ technology is central to their LED ranges, as it uses nanotechnology to provide extremely effective heat dissipation and thermal management.
LED’s generate significant amounts of heat in order to produce light. This normally requires a large thermal heatsink to adequately cool an LED lamp. The higher the lumen output, the more LEDs required, the larger the heatsink. Heat directly affects an LED lamp’s quality of light over time. Without adequately channeling the heat away from the lamp’s temperature sensitive electronics, colour temperature can shift and lumen output depreciation accelerates. LED lamp reliability and longevity depends on the thermal management.
Aurora’s CrystalCool™ nano layers technology is 150 layers of decreasingly dense, 4D ceramic nano material that conducts heat away from the lamp’s temperature-sensitive electronic components. The layers form a 3D surface upon the aluminium metal core printed circuit board, or MCPCB. The 4th dimension is time as heat produced by the LED travels through the layers, enabling increasingly rapid dissipation as the nano material becomes less dense. One effect is a 10 percent reduction in temperature at the solder point, which enables increased reliability.
Such efficient thermal management allows for an ultra high lumen output and and lifetime, meaning lamps can now produce a higher quality of light, for longer. Additionally, CrystalCool™ dramatically slows the rate of lumen depreciation. Relying solely on conventional heatsinking ensures a gradual fading of LED light, but it still diminishes at a much faster rate when compared to CrystalCool™ thermal management.
This technology is available in the M10, Firetec and CrystalCool ranges.
Twist and Lock Bezels
Bored with your current colours, no problem, Aurora has a simple solution. https://www.tradingdepot.co.uk/brands/aurora-lighting/aurora-downlight-sInterchangeable bezels enable the M10 range to be installed before the ceiling has been painted without painting over the bezel and for straightforward customisation.
Halogen lights were susceptible to blowing due to the amount of heat locked in when covered my insulation and therefore needing to have the insulation carefully placed around them. As the M10 LED lighting does not produce as much heat and you can buy an optional ‘insulation cover’ (AU-LCC50), installing this range is more convenient for the electrician and the lamps are less likely to blow and require replacement.
For emergency lighting, you can also purchase an Emergency Backup option (AU-EMTRCFL)
