Variety is key
Thorn’s revamped Jupiter II linear fluorescent widens the choice for office and school illumination. While retaining its predecessor’s reputation for performance and slimness (41mm deep), it gains more optics, additional lamp types, greater flexibility in the variety of mounting combinations available and lighting control intelligence.
Single or twin T5 lamps, from 14W to 80W, combine with interchangeable louvres (including an asymmetric option for corridors) or diffusers. Whether surface or suspended (direct/indirect), the white or grey finished luminaires can be mounted singly, in continuous lines or in a variety of geometric configurations.
Lighting control for better sustainability is an important consideration. The user can choose from digital dimmable versions to intelligent Sensa modules that incorporate a photocell / PIR sensor to compensate for daylight and respond to presence/absence. An optional hand-held controller allows staff to override the luminaire to suit their needs.
Two other refinements come with Jupiter II – the addition of uplight controllers for suspended versions and integrated self-test emergency lighting models. A close offset mounting variant can also be supplied.
