> 1. THE BENEFITS

Professional track lighting offers many benefits. The most well-known are the following:

  • Versatile
  • Easy to install
  • Reliable and long-lasting
  • Can be rearranged whenever necessary
  • It allows for a lot of creativity when it comes to the lighting design
 

But there are more advantages when using rail lighting:

  • You can combine different types of fixtures
  • You only need one power supply, for the various light sources put on the rail
  • It is perfect for most applications, like commercial, cultural and residential settings
 

With this method of lighting, you can easily illuminate a room as desired using track systems. In addition, track lighting is also an aesthetically attractive choice, because no cable ducts are required. Because rails are suitable for various applications and there is a wide range of rail fixtures, you can find a suitable solution for every project.

> 2. CLS AND TRACK

At CLS we offer Stucchi and Global. Depending on the fixtures you choose, you will need a low-voltage rail or a 3-phase rail to install everything.

Low-voltage rail: Stucchi — 24V — with data, for smaller, compact fixtures

3-phase rail: Global — 230V — with or without data, for the bigger fixtures

It is important to know that all our fixtures can be used on most rails brands, not just those mentioned above. To know which exactly, have a look at the specifications of the rails, if they are comparable to Stucchi or Global they will most likely fit. If you install the fixtures and can click them into the rails without force, they will work fine. It is also important to know that there is a maximum number of CLS fixtures that can be placed on a rail. You can find this number in the manual of each product, on the specific product pages.

In addition, it is important to know that our fixtures can still be used on Eutrac rails, even after being taken over by Stucchi. The acquisition of Eutrac by Stucchi does not mean a merger, but these companies will continue to operate side by side. Parts therefore remain available.   

If you would like more information, please contact your contact person.

> 3. LOW VOLTAGE TRACK: STUCCHI MULTISYSTEM EVO

Stucchi is an Italian brand that produces beautiful, slim systems for track lighting. An ideal combination for very slim rail fixtures such as the Focus Micro T DMX. The Stucchi Multisystem EVO track offers both power and data in a very compact form factor. 

3.1 CLS FIXTURES AND LOW VOLTAGE TRACK

CLS uses this 48V rail system on 24V, for fixtures from the Focus Series that are data controlled via Casambi or DMX. The small spotlights fit perfectly in this narrow rail system and therefore blend seamlessly into their surroundings. 

> 4. 3 PHASE TRACK: GLOBAL AND EUTRAC

4.1 GLOBAL TRACK PULSE / PRO

Global is one of the most used professional tracks, and for good reason! Their products are high quality and offer a lot of flexibility. There is a wide variety of fixtures with Global track adapters to choose from.

> 4.2 EUTRAC 220-240V

Eutrac is a company that also produces a wide variety of track lighting products, similar to Global by Nordic Aluminum. Their products are reliable and offer a lot of flexibility. If you are looking for professional track lighting, Global and Eutrac should definitely be at the top of your list! Eutrac became part of Stucchi in 2021, but both companies operate side by side. Parts for both systems are therefore still available.

4.3. CLS AND 3 PHASE TRACK

CLS offers the Global Track Pro (without data) and Global Pulse (with data) 230V track system, on which all our fixtures work excellently. The somewhat more robust rail system, compared to the narrow Stucchi Multisystem EVO rail, is suitable for the Jade, Lina, Revo, Ruby and Ultima fixtures Series in our product portfolio.
