The QUANTUM family of technical projectors features a stylish modern design and exceptional lighting performance. The recently released QUANTUM Gobo is an extraordinary lighting projector, with a high quality lens that produces a clear intense beam, highlighting areas for attracting attention.
With the range of options and possibilities that this family of luminaires offers, it can be difficult to know where to start when specifying this luminaire. So here are four tips for buying QUANTUM projectors to consider on your next project:
1. Determine the needs of your project
Buying QUANTUM projectors without knowing the needs of your project is akin the old saying of putting the cart before the horse. Until you know what you want to achieve with your design, there is no way of knowing how many QUANTUM projectors you will need, what size QUANTUM projector, the beam distribution angles, the degree of control and programming, the list goes on.
If for example you are illuminating a facade, look at where you ultimately want to illuminate. Are the columns or other architectural features that should be highlighted? Are the surfaces wide or narrow, what materials are they constructed from? Will there also be a requirement for colour, be it dynamic or fixed? Even white illumination will have a specific colour temperature.
Answering each and everyone of these questions and more will get you closer to knowing what QUANTUM projectors you require for your lighting project. If you are unsure of this you can also speak directly with one of our specialists who will be able to walk you through the available range of QUANTUM projectors and which is most suitable for your needs.
2. Simulate the design with calculation software
Each of LIGMAN’s range of interior and exterior light fittings has a suite of helpful planning tools including DIALUX, IES files, and photometic data for performing lighting calculations and simulating the intended design. This will assist you greatly during the design process to ensure you aren’t over or under illuminating and areas, as well as be certain you have the correct beam angles and aiming points for each of the fittings. Using lighting design simulation software will also help you locate each of the fittings on site and know the exact number of QUANTUM projectors that you will need to realise your design.
3. View samples and perform mockups
One of the best ways to know if you’ve selected the right light for your project is by holding it in your hands and testing it in the real world. Viewing QUANTUM projector sample fittings will give you a better idea of the size of the fitting, how the luminaire performs under different conditions, allowing you to really feel the light and know how it will perform when installed on a project. If you’ve never done a lighting test before, then this may be the best tip for you, not only for buying a QUANTUM projector but any luminaire or light fitting in the future.
