TF8050: High-tech meets design

International jury honors Beckhoff lighting solution with German Design Award

The Beckhoff lighting solution offers a whole host of impressive features, including software that facilitates the commissioning of DALI lighting controllers, and a high-quality design.

This was the feedback from the jury in their deliberations for the German Design Award 2022. The experts from all areas of design gave the Beckhoff TF8050 lighting solution a ‘Special Mention‘ in the Buildings and Elements category. “The German Design Award is one of the most highly prized honors in the industry, so it’s a real privilege for us to achieve this recognition,” enthuses Georg Schemmann, responsible for Building Automation Industry Management at Beckhoff.

Experts praise lighting solution for its numerous advantages

“The modern and simple DALI-2 lighting solution from Beckhoff offers many advantages,” the international jury was quoted as saying in its statement. The highly flexible and scalable design of the product allows it to handle anything from small applications to huge projects. What’s more, “With additional features including various interfaces and standard functions, optional cloud connection, and rapid programming, it also offers real savings in terms of both resources and time.”

Simplification of all work steps – from engineering to maintenance

“The TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution (TF8050) has been used in many projects since it launched two years ago,” notes Georg Schemmann, responsible for Building Automation Industry Management at Beckhoff. With this software, a suitable solution can be implemented for any lighting situation in large office buildings, logistics halls, or production halls. “This includes not only a comprehensive, seamless range of functions, but also the consistent simplification of all work steps and operating options. Even large DALI-2 systems can be commissioned within a very short time,” explains Georg Schemmann. What’s more, the TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution is fully HTML5-capable, decentrally scalable, and simple to operate via a panel and mobile devices such as tablets.

Recognized design award turns ten years old

The German Design Award is the greatest accolade bestowed by the German Design Council and, according to the organizers, one of the most highly renowned international design awards. The German Design Council has been honoring pioneering designers and their work with this award for ten years, with entries judged by an international jury made up of leading professionals from all areas of design. The ‘Special Mention’ element of the German Design Award is presented for remarkable design achievements. This seal of quality serves to set award winners apart from the competition if they have taken a special approach to their work or a particular aspect of it that impresses the jury.
