Xtend EcoLight will present a worldwide unique product range of energy saving fluorescent light tubes with integra­ted electronic ballasts based on a sophisticated IC design.

Due to our wide range of available systems, we are offering our customers lighting solutions with a perfect balance between potential energy savings and minimum requirements for light quantity. Xtend EcoLight tubes are available with average durabilities of 16,000, 24,000 or 40,000 hours – ideal for almost every requirement. More than 1,000 different variants, mostly being manufactured "just-in-time" at our Düsseldorf site, are already available on the standard programme.

Xtend EcoLight illuminants can be used as retrofit products to replace conventional T8 fluorescent tubes, LED tubes and other T8 substitutes that do not meet the requirements of, for example, providing a specific amount of light. However, Xtend EcoLight is increasingly being applied in new installations. Due to their integrated electronic ballasts, our tubes can be installed easily in new electronics-free lights.

The light+building is the world's biggest fair for lighting and intelligent buildings. Over 2,000 exhi­bitors from all over the world present their latest innovations for the fields of lighting, electrical engineering and building automation. In 2014, the theme of light+building will be "Explore Technology for Life - the best energy is the energy that is not consumed".

Xtend EcoLight Philippines: Technopro Enterprises becomes exclusive Partner
Technopro Enterprises
EcoLight Philippines

Located at the outskirts of the capital Manila, the 15-year-old company has been specializing in consulting and installation of lightning protec­tion systems. Recognizing the worldwide growing importance of energy-efficient lighting, General Manager Rostum Macaranas looked for suitable pro­ducts to be used in Philippinean companies when he hit on Xtend EcoLight, one of the most efficient T8 substitutes on the market. In the Philippines conventional T8 fluorescent tubes are still widely used, so that simply replacing them with energy efficient luminaires is such a convincing concept, that in early August 2012 Technopro became International Business Partner for the Philippines to distribute Xtend EcoLight there exclusively.

Xtend develops wirelessly dimmable fluorescent tube

To dim the lighting – without any wire or switch? That sounds good and will soon be possible simply by smartphone! For the first time, Xtend presented some prototypes at the light+building 2012.


In 2011, the Innovation Alliance of North Rhine West-
phalia mediated at Xtend the contact to Professor Dr.-Ing. Udo Jorczyk of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Applied Sciences as an academic partner for the development of an innovative system for wireless dimming of fluorescent lamps. For Xtend this represents the next logical step in a development that is already focused on energy-saving lamps.

Professor Jorczyk and also his master’s degree student René Rettkowski felt inspired by the project, because such a system is not yet available in the market. With the presentation at the light+building, the world’s leading fair for lighting and intelligent buildings, now the first milestone has been accomplished. But this is not the end! The technology will be further improved, so that finally the stage of production can be reached.

Later this year, Xtend expects to make the wirelessly dimmable energy saving fluorescent tube "Xtend EcoLight smart switchable" available to the market. By dimming the lamp, the power consumption will be reduced even further. – Without any additional wiring and also very easy to use for the customer by an app on his smartphone.
