functional principle of skala01 systems



is a universal construction kit system with focus on affordable solutions in special situations which can not be met by standard:

  • Underlaying principles of the flux development apply.
  • Only necessary components are used in each case.
  • As the skala01 system is very flexible it is able to meet the requirements the best way possible.
  • the systems can react on environmental influences and visualize them with light reactions as well as extracting the data via control interfaces.
  • Alternatively dynamical changes can be programmed in software instead of using physical stimuli to modulate the light.
  • The system can be controlled with several different methods.
  • Several nodes can be connected together to exchange data among them, where each consists of input, processing and output.
  • The outer shape of a skala01 system is totally open to the needs of the application. It is possible to create elements for floor, wall, indoor and outdoor. Also the electronics can be delivered separately.

The following list shows some fictive applications that can be done – also in combination:

  • A homogeneous lighting surface, having a special shape, for example round with an irregular contour. It can change colors or brightness on its own with a smooth and fine quality which is totally free of flickering.
  • A sensitive object containing a pixel matrix, having a special shape and on which’s pixel matrix can display patterns, reactions or specific contents when being touched or approached to. Imagine a huge flower behaving like this.
  • A dynamic area for presentation purposes, reaction with light animations when people pass. Lighting elements can consist of several areas or spot lights. It can be plain-colored or multi-colored light. Also audio output on reaction is possible and the element can be adjusted via remote control.
  • A group of sensitive lights in a network., where each one consists of a node with a motion sensor and which are connected among each other so they can exchange data. Now a reaction of one light can spread out to the neighboring lights and can cause a reaction across the whole group. The distance between the lights can be dozens of meters which results in a very impressive effect. The arrangement can be line- or grid-like
  • A audio analysis, checking the spectral content of the signal and accordingly outputting control signals, for example via DMX, the lighting control format. The settings can be changed via DMX or Midi interface or a COM-Terminal.
  • intelligent lighting control, which is capable of analyzing audio input and other input values and from the results controlling a huge lighting system for being rich in variety and appropriate to the incoming music. It can be configured via web page in a local area network. While being active it can only be controlled via some few controls like Midi-Control-Signals. It is fitted into a 19″ case to be placed into a equipment room.
