Abstract

Lighting system with a transformer (1), a cable or rod system which has two electrical conductors (2, 3) and is electrically connected to the transformer (1), at least one lamp holder (6) for a lamp (9) with a low-voltage lamp and a connection device for connecting the lamp to the cable or rod system, characterized in that between the lamp holder (6) arranged on the cable or rod system and the low-voltage lamp (9) an adapter (10, 15) is detachably fastened, the first end of which is a two Plug (12, 13) and the second end of which has a socket (14) for a two-pole plug of the low-voltage lamp (9).

Description

  • The invention relates to a lighting system with a transformer, a two-conductor, rope or rod system electrically connected to the transformer, at least one lamp holder for a low-voltage lamp and a connection device to connect the lamp to the rope or pole system.
  • With such lighting systems, the long time are known, the mains voltage is by means of a transformer from 220 V or 110 V AC to a low voltage, mostly 12 V transforms direct current. Both the electrical conductors of the Rope systems as well as other connection parts can be used at low voltages and Stream outward stay uninsulated. The electrical conductors of the rope system exist for example made of galvanized copper wire. If you use pole systems, so are steel bars there chrome or nickel plated.
  • To connect the lamp mostly clamp-like screw connections selected, which are loose compared overlying or attached connectors have the advantage that the lights do not slip or even accidentally dropped can be. Mostly lead the current conductors used to a lamp holder in which a low-voltage lamp is attached. The low-voltage lamps have meanwhile the lamp type prevailed, the power supply two contact pins has, which is inserted into a corresponding socket of the lamp holder become. As an alternative to this, such are also widespread Lamps that have contact surfaces on the back instead of the contact pins are made by rotating the lamp in a bayonet-type Inclusion of the lamp holder along a ramp for contact guided become.
  • The corresponding rope or bar system is either parallel to the ceiling or a wall and owns several units from the described lamp holders with inserted lamps. Such lamps can be halogen spotlights, for example his.
  • Lighting systems are also known in principle, in which the lamp holder is arranged at the end of a hanging body on the attached to the ropes or poles. The versions are mostly integrated in so-called spotlights on the ropes or rods suspended are and of which the power supply cables are mostly parallel to the suspension to the live ones Ropes or rods led become.
  • It is an object of the present invention to improve the lighting system mentioned at the beginning, that with little effort high variability is achieved.
  • This task is done by the lighting system solved according to claim 1, in the invention between the lamp holder arranged on the rope or rod system and the low-voltage lamp an adapter is releasably attached, the first end a two-pole connector and its second End a socket for has a two-pin plug of the low-voltage lamp. The order the poles of the two plugs and their geometric design are the same, so the low voltage lamp is either immediately in the lamp holder - like known in the art - inserted and attached can be or alternatively the adapter is interposed, with what with ceiling lighting according to the adapter length altitude the low-voltage lamp is changed as a light source. You can use wall hooks the adapter also other than hanging align so that not only in the vertical but also in the horizontal the radiation location of the low-voltage lamp can be changed is.
  • The adapter is preferably present from a flexible, outside insulated cable, which is aligned vertically under pure tensile load is, if necessary, via Wall hooks or other lines can be hung or even can be knotted so that changes in length possible are.
  • Preferably, the socket of the Adapters and the socket of the lamp holder and the corresponding Plug over additional friction and / or positive Elements connectable. In the simplest case, these are roughened Pole and socket surfaces meant the higher one Have friction. Form-locking elements can be used as additional Hanger, Brackets, bayonet-like locks or the like can be formed, as in principle already in the case of lamps known from the prior art is applied. It is essential that the plug contacts are not due to the weight of the hanging load from the socket be pulled out.
  • The low-voltage lamps are preferably light-emitting diodes (LED), which have the advantage of a much longer lifespan and a have low power consumption. The required voltage for LED is usually below 12 V, so that the transformer used a corresponding low voltage is to be generated or, if existing 12 V transformers are to be used, additional ones resistors used in the sense of a voltage divider circuit in the lamp holder become. In this case of retrofitting there are electrical losses, but they are compared at the cost of a new transformer vanishingly small.
  • The particular advantage of the lighting system according to the invention lies in the fact that a simple measure not only enables horizontal displacement of the lamps along the cable or rod guides, but also additional changes in the height of the lamp and also cable routing the lamps to other places. For example, lamps hanging in an L, U or square rope or rod profile can be aligned using the adapter so that all lamps or part of the lamps are hung centrally via a ceiling hook. By using adapters of different lengths, "pendant lights" can be installed at different heights.
  • An embodiment of the invention is shown in the drawing, which is an exploded view Sketch-like lighting system according to the invention shows.
  • Via a transformer 1 there will be an adequate voltage between the two electrical conductors 2 and 3 abandoned that through lanyards 4 and 5 to a connection device 6 is transmitted, which has a socket into which the poles 7 and 8th the low-voltage lamp 9 can be inserted. According to the invention is an adapter 10 provided a connector at the first end 11 with Poland 12 and 13 has and at the opposite end a socket 14 for the two poles 7 and 8th a low voltage lamp 9 , The adapter can also be used as with reference numbers 15 clarifies longer (or shorter) than adapter 10 be trained. Apart from the plugs and the sockets, the adapter is each designed as a flexible cable, so that it can also be hung up like a cord on hooks, moved over other holders or bundled together with other adapters using a cord or the like. In any case, it becomes clear from the individual figure representation that different luminaire heights can be set with the lighting system according to the invention.
