Market & Customers

Tridonic develops, manufactures and markets components and control systems for innovative lighting solutions throughout the world. The focus is on the reliability of the many different products and on customer satisfaction. Customers include luminaire manufacturers, architects, electrical system designers, lighting planners, electricians and distributors.


Tridonic has been involved in the quest for perfect light for more than 50 years. Today Tridonic is renowned for its excellent products and services dedicated to the fascination of light. Corresponding to its slogan “enlightening your ideas” the company supports its customers in developing energy efficient lighting solutions.

Curiosity and inventiveness have made the company great. The Tridonic story starts back in 1956, with the development of compact magnetic ballasts. In 1978 the first electronic ballasts for comfortable economic operation of fluorescent lamps were launched, and have been developed and improved ever since. Digital dimmable ballasts were launched in 1991, a technical revolution that is still paving the way forwards – at a time when 100 % of the market worked with analogue 1 to 10 V control signals. Today, the entire market has embraced digital technology, and Tridonic has established itself as the market leader in innovative ECGs. In 1996, Tridonic produced the PC-E011, the first mass-produced electronic ASIC ECG, and set new standards in 1999 with the digital ZRM-D ignitor with its patented pulse-pause mode of operation.

In 2001, Tridonic started production of TALEXX-modules with state-of-the-art COB (chip on board) technology. Only one year later, as mentioned above, the entire industry followed the “digital concept” of the DALI standard. The company continued to set the pace with the introduction of its DALI range of products. In 2003, it succeeded in integrating lighting management into existing IT networks with winDIM@net. Today, Tridonic is playing a key role in this lighting market. The company is obviously keen to continuously strengthen its position. A spirit of creativity, inventiveness and entrepreneurial skills will take the company on to even greater success. New developments are very often introduced not as replacements for existing equipment but as supplements, so that different requirements and applications can be covered.


The fact that Tridonic offers a large number of products is a good indicator that development efforts are focused on individual solutions. The requirements are just as wide-ranging as the areas of application. Products from Tridonic have certain things in common however: they are all absolutely reliable and are right up there with the state of the art – and often one step ahead.

250 development engineers create intelligent lighting concepts based on sophisticated systems and products. More than 570 inventions and over 2,000 patents are ample evidence of the powers of innovation of Tridonic. A share of new products in its overall portfolio of over 40 % underlines the development powers of the company.
