Intro

This patent provides solutions which enable the distribution of the light emitted by a lighting module to be varied without the need to change components of the lighting module. While the LED is coupled rigidly to a support, the optical means, such as a lens or a reflector, have a radiation pattern with rotational asymmetry.

Claims

  1. A lighting module comprising a base structure and a plurality of light points configured to generate light radiation, wherein said light points are coupled to said base structure, wherein said lighting module comprises at least one light point which has a radiation pattern with rotational asymmetry, and wherein said base structure and said at least one light point are configured to couple said light point to said base structure with different orientations.
  2. The lighting module as claimed in claim 1, wherein said light point includes: a support, at least one light source rigidly coupled to said support, wherein said at least one light source is configured to generate said light radiation, and optical means rigidly coupled to said support and arranged in the path of the light radiation generated by said at least one light source, wherein said optical means have a radiation pattern with rotational asymmetry.
  3. The lighting module as claimed in claim 2, wherein said light point is rotatable with respect to said base structure.
  4. The lighting module as claimed in claim 3, wherein said support of said light point has a circular cross section, and wherein said base structure comprises at least one cavity with a cross section substantially corresponding to the cross section of said support of said light point.
  5. The lighting module as claimed in claim 4, wherein said base structure comprises a printed circuit board which comprises said at least one cavity.
  6. The lighting module as claimed in claim 5, wherein said lighting module comprises fastening means configured to lock the orientation of said light point.
  7. The lighting module as claimed in claim 6, wherein said printed circuit board and said support comprise electrical tracks for powering said at least one light source, and wherein said fastening means are configured to provide the electrical connection between the electrical tracks of said printed circuit board and the electrical tracks of said support.
  8. The lighting module as claimed in claim 7, wherein said electrical tracks of said support and said fastening means are configured to provide a sliding contact.
  9. The lighting module as claimed in claim 2, wherein said optical means is one of an optical lens and a reflector.
  10. The lighting module as claimed in claim 1, wherein said light point comprises at least one LED.
  11. An integrated lighting system, comprising a lighting module comprising a base structure and a plurality of light points configured to generate light radiation, wherein said light points are coupled to said base structure, wherein said lighting module comprises at least one light point which has a radiation pattern with rotational asymmetry, and wherein said base structure and said at least one light point are configured to couple said light point to said base structure with different orientations, and an electronic converter for powering said lighting module.
