During configuration, LED strips are laid in an optimised manner along the length of the profiles. The LED strips are supplied as a complete roll. These are supplied according to requirement as 1, 2 or 5 m rolls (for example: For an 800 mm long LED strip, we deliver a 1 m roll).
The LED strips are not cut to size by SLV. You receive the LED strips on a roll and can cut these yourself to the length you require. Please note the approved cutting marks on the LED strips.
SLV does not make mitre cuts. The length required for mitre cuts is automatically added in as part of the configuration, so that you can make the mitre cuts during installation without loss of material.
In addition, you will also receive the remaining pieces of the LED profiles for your individually configured scenario in their original packaging.
Any exchange of individually put together profiles and of opened LED strip rolls is excluded.
1. Start configurator
Please click on the button „Start configurator“
2. Mounting surface
The mounting surface serves to determine the mounting location. You can choose between "Floor/Stairs", "Wall" and "Ceiling".
The mounting situation you choose determines, among other matters, the view within the 3D configurator. The choice of mounting type determines the profiles to be chosen in the next step.
Please make your choice and click on „Proceed to mounting type“
3. Mounting type
You determine the type of profile with the mounting type. You have the choice of "Recess", "Built-on", "Partial recess" and "Pendant luminaire". The selection is made available depending on the previously selected mounting surface.
Please make your choice and click on „Proceed to profile selection“
4. Profile selection
You can choose one type of profile within each configuration. The appropriate colour filters will support you in your choice.
Please choose the profile you require and then click on „Proceed to 3D-Configuration“
5. The user interface of the SLV LED Profile Configurator
The user interface of the SLV LED Profile Configurator is composed of the following areas :
6. Navigation within the SLV LED Profile Configurator
In order to change the point of view in the SLV LED Profile Configurator or to zoom, either use your mouse or the directional controller in the top right of the window.
If you use the mouse, the following applies:
Move the mouse cursor to the point you want in the 3D view – click once while holding down the left mouse key – then move the mouse to shift the point of view.
To rotate the point of view, move the mouse cursor to the point you want in the 3D view - click and hold down the right mouse key. Then keeping the mouse key pressed move or rotate the mouse to change the view.
To enlarge or reduce the view, please use the wheel of your mouse.
You can return to your original point of view by pressing the "ESC" key or by clicking the icon in the middle of the directional controller.
7. Configuring scenarios
Click on a profile with the left mouse key in order to configure this profile or attach another profile to the profile selected.
The menu offers you the following options (clockwise):
Deletes a profile from the current assembly group
Offers the options of shifting the current assembly group in the view
You can rotate a profile by entering the number of degrees
You can alter the desired length of the profile
Here you can choose the potential available covering and the LED strips available for this profile
Use this to extend the assembly group by another profile
After confirming the deletion, the profile will be deleted from the component group or from the whole scenario.
Shift the selected assembly group within your scenario.
You can only shift whole component groups and not individual profiles.
Note: This is not possible if a 90° connector has been used to link the profiles. In this case, the Rotate option is not displayed in the menu.
Enter the length of the profile in mm. Only whole mm values can be entered.
Note: At present, this is the length of the profile including any end caps or connectors used.
12. Edit profile
After clicking on "Edit profile" you will receive the selection of LED strips available for this profile.
By selecting the check box "Apply to all profiles in the assembly group" you have the option of transferring this selection to all profiles in the assembly group.
13. Edit profile
Once you have successfully selected an LED strip for a profile, the profile will be marked with a light bulb icon in the 3D view.
14. Extend profile
After clicking on "Extend profile", you will receive various configuration options depending on the selected profile. Among these options are :
Mitre cuts are at present not made by SLV, but there is provision for them in the SLV LED Profile Configurator. After selecting "Mitre cut", the profiles will be supplied cut to or delivered at the appropriate length.
Connectors can be attached in two directions and must be selected accordingly
Enter the desired file name
for the scenario and click on the "Save" button.
Select the desired scenario and click on the "Load" button.
Click on the "Accessories" button to open an additional window for selecting the desired accessories. By selecting the desired number, these items will be added to the parts list of the scenario. To close the window for selecting the accessories, click on the "X" icon in the top right of the Accessories window.
18. Parts list
Click on the "Parts list" button to show the parts list.
For orientation purposes, the manufacturing dimensions will be displayed for you. If required, you can hide this information under the menu point. Of course, you can show the dimensions again at any time. Please note that the manufacturing dimensions automatically adjust to the dimensions given depending on accessories (e. g. end caps).
20. Assembly group(s)
You can create assembly groups within the configuration. You can use this function to make plans within a scenario, for instance to create openings for doors or non-connected sections such as stairs. The new assembly groups are created with the same profile as the original profile. Using this function you can create, save and order as many plans as you like within a room scenario.
English: „light-emitting diode“
Creates light by converting electrical energy into visible electromagnetic energy.
Our LED profiles are distinguished by high-quality materials, energy-saving LED strips and – as with all the products in our range – solutions with the "high quality, tested in Germany" feature.
Light has an endless different aspects. It creates security, shows the way, arouses emotions, sets highlights or gives spaces a very special atmosphere. With LED strips, you can use light as a design element in individual ways for any private or professional application and in a great variety of colours to reflect any mood. LED strips in warm white, neutral white or cool white provide lighting that ranges from cosy to technical and daylight simulating. With LED strips in RGB versions you can achieve colour moods in red, green or blue or in a blend of those three colours. With RGB/W strips, mixing the colours red/green/blue with white can create pastel shades or simply plain white light. With dimmable solutions, which can also be conveniently controlled by remote, or control by LIM devices for example, there are almost no limits on the effects you can achieve.
LED light sources are versatile. Along with the numerous options for applying a wide range of light colours, the use of LED light sources is one of the simplest ways of saving energy costs. LEDs reduce energy consumption by 90 % and have a working life of up to 50,000 hours. The light sources give out the maximum light directly after the luminaire is switched on. And yet the LED is in no way inferior to the light bulb. At a colour temperature of 2700 Kelvin, the LED produces a comparable warm white light.
Stands for the colours red, green and blue and describes colour change products used to give spaces an individual colour atmosphere.
Stands for the colours red, green, blue and white and describes colour change products used to give spaces individual dynamic colour moods or to produce a white basic lighting.
Unit of measurement for the colour temperature of a light source.
Warm white (WW)
Colour of light < 3300 Kelvin – warm white light for a cosy, warm atmosphere, especially in living rooms.
Colour of light at 3300 to 5300 Kelvin – white light for a neutral atmosphere.
Cool light (CW) / daylight white
Colour of light > 5300 Kelvin – daylight simulating light for technical lighting or daylight type conditions
Colour rendering index (CRI)
The colour rendering quality of a light source is described using the colour rendering index (CRI). The colour rendering index denotes the degree of conformity of the colour of an object as perceived with its appearance under a defined reference light source.
