Thorn Lighting is committed to providing lighting software tools to support customers in the design of lighting schemes and product selection.

VIVALDI

VIVALDI V.5.0.0.1 [MSI/114MB]

Overview of VIVALDI's key functions:

  • Interactive design tool to visually display lighting scenarios and dynamic lighting sequences interior and façade lighting.
  • Dynamically adjustable brightness levels and light colours.
  • Allows the display of daylight sequences to optimise the interplay of daylight and artificial lighting.
  • Displays changes of dimming levels and light colours in real time, including real-time calculation of the required energy and the photometric criteria.
  • Allows the creation of individual film sequences for the various lighting scenarios.

There are two different modes in VIVALDI:

  • In façade mode luminaires can simply be placed on photographs and the direct fraction of the light distribution is displayed on the photograph.
  • The general mode works with pre-calculated images from lighting simulation tools. Separately calculated images are imported for different lighting control groups, providing a more accurate visualisation. It is also possible to display the effects for interior or façade lighting obtained by dimming or through colour changes in real time, to save dynamic timelines and to integrate daylight sequences. In doing so, the program always takes account of illuminance levels and energy consumption. Images for VIVALDI can be exported from Relux automatically, as well as transferred from Dialux evo and other simulation programs as HDR or EXR images.

EcoCALC

ecoCALC 5.1.0 [.exe/92,5 MB)]

Performance upgrade: Our output module that gives you full control over your presentation has been optimized to reduce file size and calculation time.

The ecoCALC calculation programme gives users the unique opportunity to calculate all the costs incurred by a lighting solution throughout its service life. In the process, ecoCALC not only calculates the investment cost but also takes CO2 emission, energy consumption, maintenance costs or waste disposal into account. In many projects ecoCALC is not primarily used as a tool for cost optimization, but to analyse the impact of different lighting concepts on lifecycle cost. The ecoCALC programme is free of charge and has been available since 2010.

Recently introduced features include:

  • Output module with predesigned slides gives you full control over your presentation.
  • The NOW! module allows you to evaluate possibilities of light as a service.
  • Drag & drop luminaire data from the website.

Common features of all versions include:

  • Sustainable lighting levels are taken into account, as are the costs incurred by a lighting solution throughout its service life.
  • Dynamic comparison of several lighting solutions
  • Ranking of solutions, taking flexible evaluation criteria into account
  • Quick access via a simplified wizard mode with predefined settings. Analysis can be manually refined via a more complex expert mode
  • The specific application situation is taken into account (dynamic operation, variable electricity rates, power supply shutoff, dimming characteristics, daylight-based savings, maintenance control)
  • Automatic calculation of maintenance illuminance throughout installation’s service life (based on CIE 97 + on manufacturer-specific basics).

ecoCALC 5.1.0 doesn't support Windows XP, so if you still have Windows XP then please use ecoCALC 4.0.7.

ecoCALC 3.1.1 [MSI/102MB]
ecoCALC - balancing lighting quality, efficiency and costs
The new ecoCALC calculation programme gives users the unique opportunity to calculate all the costs incurred by a lighting solution throughout its service life. In the process, ecoCALC not only calculates the investment cost but also takes the financial aspects of an environmentally sound lighting system into account. These include, among others: CO2 emission, energy consumption, maintenance costs or waste disposal.
