TELEFUNKEN Licht Product Lines

TELEFUNKEN LED Light Modules are realising the next step in evolution of the light module world. They are driverless and as a result, open up new creative possibilities for lamp manufacturers, architects and designers. This patented driverless technology offers significant advantages for consumer, commercial and industrial applications. The absence of a driver makes the modules more cost-effective, sustainable and resource-efficient than conventional LED lighting technology. 


TELEFUNKEN Licht Illumination offers the entire world of lighting devices which in terms of luminosity, functions and form, leave nothing to be desired. TELEFUNKEN Licht AG offers economically beneficial products with short amortisation periods and long lifespans – for both consumer, commercial and industrial use. With their traditionally high-class TELEFUNKEN design, these lamps embellish any room and create new highlights.


TELEFUNKEN Objects (Retrofit) combines cutting-edge technology with  practical solutions for various areas of application. In addition to standard lamps, TELEFUNKEN Objects offers customised solutions for sophisticated demands – from track bed to stadium lighting. 


TELEFUNKEN Media / Entertainment meets professional requirements in the fields of entertainment, infotainment and architainment based on special LED displays.
