Heraeus Noblelight GmbH, a company within the worldwide precious metals- and technology organisation Heraeus, will be represented at SOLARIA 2005 in Cologne by its Original Hanau SunCare Division. Original Hanau SunCare is the specialist for tanning lamps and UV technology for sunbeds. At SOLARIA, Original Hanau SunCare is launching the innovative VARIUS system, a system which offers high pressure output in a compact and flexible package.

High Pressure in its Most Innovative Form


The VARIUS system is the latest stroke of genius from Original Hanau SunCare. The VARIUS system is a complete high pressure tanning unit. Thanks to its very small space requirement and simple fitting, the system can be flexibly integrated into virtually every sunbed concept. Thus innovative designs and tanning concepts can be realised. VARIUS offers manufacturers great flexibility and thus significantly reduced development costs. Original Hanau SunCare is showing the system and its first successful example of its incorporation into tanning equipment at the SOLARIA exhibition in Cologne.

“We have developed the revolutionary UV light source VARIUS from our position as technology leader in the tanning sector,” says Markus Berghöfer, General Manager of Original Hanau SunCare, “We work as a development partner with sunbed manufacturers and, with VARIUS, we have created a flexible and efficient high pressure solution.”

VARIUS, the complete high pressure tanning unit from Original Hanau SunCare, consists of five modules:

 A reflector made of special glass with an optimised interference coating
 A 250 Watt high pressure tanning lamp
 A filter plate
 A plug-in electrical connection
 A fixing strap

All components are precisely matched to each other. The sunbed manufacturer receives one compact unit and needn’t worry about all the individual parts being compatible.

Visions Become Reality In An Instant

VARIUS permits completely new concepts in sunbed design. Thanks to its compact construction and its small space requirement it is a very flexible piece of equipment. Specific foot-, leg-, hand-, face-, décolletage-, and shoulder-tanners can be produced. The new system can be integrated within tube fields. For example, a VARIUS unit can replace two to three tanning tubes in width and in the bottom section of the sunbed, several modules can be built in as a foot tanner. VARIUS is an effective alternative to spaghetti tubes as a face tanner.

The integration into sunbeds can be carried out at little cost. There is no longer any need for the extensive construction previously required for high pressure solutions in terms of a lot of individual components such as filter frame holders, reflectors, high pressure lamps etc. VARIUS is a self-contained complete system. Fixing is by means of a single clamp and only two drill holes are necessary. Electrical connection for the system is via a top quality plug connection. Suitable ignition and power supply units can be optionally supplied by Original Hanau SunCare.

Effective tanning surface and intensity are controlled by the number of systems and their spacing from the irradiated surface. A simple cooling of the whole system is sufficient. As a result, VARIUS is a Plug-and-Play system.

The high pressure lamp is offered as a replacement part via our dealers. Lamp change-over can be carried out without the need for special tools in much the same way as the change-over of all components.

Heraeus Noblelight GmbH, with its headquarters in Hanau and with subsidiaries in the USA, Great Britain and China, is one of the technology- and market-leaders in the production of specialist light sources. In 2004, Heraeus Noblelight had an annual turnover of 76 Million € and employed 626 people worldwide. The organisation develops, manufactures and markets infrared and ultraviolet emitters for applications in manufacture, industrial process technology, environmental protection, medicine and cosmetics, research and analytical measurement technology.

Heraeus, the global precious metals and technology group, is a market and technology leader in the business areas of precious metals, dental health, sensors, quartz glass, and specialty lighting sources. In 2004, the company generated revenues of € 8.3 billion with more than 9,800 employees worldwide in over 100 subsidiaries and associated companies. Founded in 1851, the company’s broad product portfolio has made Heraeus relatively independent of developments in individual industrial sectors. Heraeus proactively targets and fosters the high innovation and development potential within the company. Heraeus uses customer-oriented product developments and specific acquisitions to expand its leading position in diverse industrial sectors.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
