LED Lighting Fixtures Added To The Swiss Alps Jungfraujoch Train Experience
With the help of ETC Selador Desire LED lighting fixtures, a large section of the train journey to the Jungfraujoch station in the Swiss Alps has been turned into a compelling tourist experience.
Up to 5,000 people visit Jungfraujoch each day, with stunning views from the platform, restaurants and a geological station greeting visitors once they’ve finally reached the top. Now, visitors can explore six special attraction areas as part of a new museum-like experience thanks to the new lighting fixtures. A two-minute, 16-second light, sound and automation show for each area was developed by communications company Steiner Sarnen AG.
The ETC fixtures have the ability to seamlessly change color temperature to affect the mood of the lighting for specific parts of the cave.
“We found the Desire fixtures really easy to use,” says Lighting Designer Serge Schmuki of Tokyo Blue. “Currently, we operate the lights in HSIC mode, which means we have control over hue and saturation, as well as the opportunity to adjust the color temperature in both white light and when color mixing.
The IP66 rating on the Desire fixtures certifies that they are both water- and dust-tight.
“The rugged outdoor lights were factory rebuilt for our specific requirements,” says Jürg Bichsel of installation company Stageparts. “Both ETC as the manufacturer and the Swiss important ECM quickly implemented our special requests and even delivered overnight.”
