New signage improves navigation through Lyon St. Exupéry airport. LED modules and LNU dimmers from Tridonic ensure optimum readability of the signage in all areas of the buildings at all times of day and night.

Energy consumption reduced by around 40 percent

Around 1,000 new flight information display panels and direction signs from the French manufacturer SEV Enseignes have been installed at Lyon airport – backlit by 62,000 LED modules from Tridonic. The TALEXXcontrol LNU dimmers fade the connected LEDs up or down automatically to the necessary level according to ambient brightness. The signage therefore always remains perfectly readable – even in areas with a very high proportion of natural daylight. Thanks to the use of TALEXXcontrol LNU units, electricity costs are around 40 percent lower than for a standard LED solution. CLASSIC and SELECT versions of TALEXXchain CRYSTAL LED modules are used as efficient light sources for this application.

The decision makers in Lyon took a number of other factors into consideration. "For us, a good price/performance ratio also includes technical support which guarantees rapid installation and then zero maintenance", said Christophe Langlet, Technical Director of Lyon St. Exupéry airport.
