Plessey LEDs in light spectacular at Compton Verney Park


Plessey, the manufacturer of lighting and sensing products and components, will be lighting up Compton Verney Park, Warwickshire, in a spectacular entitled “IN LIGHT” to commemorate the 300th anniversary of renowned British landscape architect, “Capability” Brown.

The Plessey LEDs are being used in Consol Solar Jars which are manufactured by South African company Suntoy. Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park are using 1,000 of the jars as one of its key set pieces.

Plessey’s GaN on Silicon LEDs are being used as they offer manufacturers unique flexibility when designing custom light fittings due to their compact, eco-friendly and sustainable nature.

This is the first time globally, that wireless DMX technology has been used to activate so many solar powered lanterns in an art exhibition of this magnitude. The technological challenge was made easier in collaboration with UJ (University of Johannesburg) and their research facility RC (Resolution circle).
