GVA Lighting INFINITY r Technology.

300 meter+ or 1000 feet+

The story of INFINITY® technology started in 2010 when GVA Lighting was approached with an unusual request to help delineate one of the tallest buildings in Toronto, standing 298 meters (978ft) tall. The project had strict requirements and limitations placed by the architect: 

Fixtures had to be:

·         Bright, visible from a long distance

·         Small in size, clean looking

·         Color changing

·         Highly reliable

·         Reasonable cost

As well as:

·         No “spaghetti” wiring on the facade of the building

·         No penetrations into the building


GVA Lighting achieved:

·         Long lighting circuits up to 300 meters (1,000 feet) can be fed from a single power and data input point.

·         Compact size by eliminating bulky capacitors and inductors required for AC/DC converters

·         Small cables and connectors

·         Clean look from a small form factor and lack of visible fasteners

·         Increased fixture reliability and lifespan by eliminating temperature sensitive electrolytic capacitors (typically rated for 4,000 hours @ 80°C)

·         Increased fixture reliability and lifespan by separating light source (completely sealed) and optical system (diffuser)

·         Compatibility with renewable energy sources (solar, wind)

·         Energy saving by eliminating AC/DC conversion

·         Ideal Power Factor 1.0 or 0.99 for AC/DC source

·         Lower system cost with fewer, higher wattage power supplies

·         Lower system cost with savings on cabling and connections with through wiring design

The Problem was solved! GVA Lighting can build very long lighting circuits fed from a single power and data input point*:

·         Wall washing light @ 1,650lm/meter (500lm/ft) – STR9-MONO @ 5W/ft

·         Exterior delineation light @ 4,000cd/m2 – HIGHLIGHTER HL-DL

·         Cove lighting @ 1,500 lumens/meter (450lm/ft) – HIGHLIGHTER HL-COVE
