The Goal
ERCO, headquartered in Lüdenscheid, Germany, specializes in producing engineering hardware and software for architectural lighting. ERCO’s indoor luminaires, outdoor luminaires, and lighting control systems comprise an extensive range of lighting equipment for architectural lighting solutions. ERCO set out to create a breakthrough reflector design that would allow easy and flexible adaptations to be made to a variety of architectural lighting applications, including narrow spot, flood, and accent lighting.
ERCO used LightTools® to create the innovative Spherolit reflectors, which are distinguished from conventional reflectors by their three-dimensional spherical curvature that can be shaped for specific light distributions.
“Throughout the development of the Spherolit reflector technology, I could rely on my LightTools simulation results,” said Dr. Matthias Bremerich, chief illumination engineer at ERCO. “LightTools predicted critical features in the light distribution with high accuracy. Using its powerful virtual prototyping capabilities, we saved several iterations of hardware prototypes.”
