Our history: Innovation meets Experience

DIANA was founded in 1979 and has been fully committed
to LED technology since the turn of the millennium.
Countless innovations in industrial lighting have been developed by us.

In 2000, the first LED light left our premises. And since then, the name DIANA has been closely associated with the development of LED industrial lights. After more than 40 years now, our employees produce innovative high-end LED lights every day.

Design award FOCUS OPEN

Unique in shape. Perfect in function! This is how we describe our signal tower S1 and the jury of the Baden-Württemberg International Design Award FOCUS OPEN felt the same. The innovation and design quality of the S1 was awarded with the FOCUS OPEN SPECIAL MENTION seal of approval.

UL certification

As our customer base is becoming increasingly international, we have had some of our lights tested by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL is an independent organization that inspects and certifies products for safety. The so-called UL certificate is becoming more and more a prerequisite not only in the North American market.

Introduction IO-Link

Start of the implementation of the IO-Link communication system in our lights. IO-Link has become the standard for many companies. This opens up complete-ly new possibilities for us and our customers, e.g. in the field of signal lighting.

Multi-color lights

Next evolutionary step: DIANA is the first manufacturer of multi-color lights that can illuminate machine rooms and workplaces completely in color. The multi-color function is added to the standard range just a short time later.

International design award

The Gooseneck Light D65 convinced the jury of the world-renowned FOCUS OPEN design award. The decisive factors for this award were the classic, practical design and the combination of the gooseneck principle and the new LED technology. The award shows that DIANA Electronic Systems not only develops outstanding lights, but also meets high design standards.

Wireless task lights

Product launch of the LED Task Light P64 with wireless control. Individual lights or entire groups of lights can be controlled via a battery-free and wireless push- button.

Horticulture lights

The development work is bearing fruit: the first generation of LED plant lights from DIANA are the more efficient system compared to conventional plant lights. Wave spectra adapted to plants and minimal heat generation guarantee the best growth.

ECO mode

The first lights with ECO Mode are presented. This is controlled by an integrated microcontroller and further increases the service life of the lights. Another inno­vation from DIANA.

Relocation to Schwaikheim

DIANA leaves the company location in Kriegsbergstraße in the Waiblingen suburb of Hohenacker after 28 years. New and larger business premises are found in nearby Schwaikheim. Nothing stands in the way of the company‘s steady growth.

Water cooling

DIANA enters a new performance class and, with the development of the first water-cooled LED light, makes a name for itself as a specialist for special LED lights.

The first LED stripes

A particularly small and flexible lighting system was required for a trade fair stand. So we fitted flexible thin film circuit boards with LEDs and wired them. The first LED stripes from DIANA were born.

Bi-color lights

It gets colorful: the first bi-color tube light leaves the house of DIANA. New colors also mean new fields of application.
Timeline Image 12

UV LED lights

The development of the first UV LED light for curing adhesives has been completed. Photochemical pro­cesses with UV light can now also be operated with DIANA lights.
Timeline Image 13

Onboard switching regulator

The onboard switching regulator, which was installed for the first time, not only increased energy efficiency. A more compact and cost-effective design was also introduced. Meanwhile this component is known under the name DOB (Driver on Board) in the field of LED lighting.

External LED drivers

DIANA becomes the first supplier of external LED drivers for high-power LEDs.
Timeline Image 15

High-power LED lights

The first high-power LEDs are installed in January 2003. The DIANA machine lights inspire with their enormous luminosity and low energy consumption.
Timeline Image 16

Stroboscope lights

DIANA develops the first strobe light with integrated electronics and a flash duration of 2,5 µs. This opens up completely new fields of application for LED lights, e.g. in industrial image processing.
Timeline Image 17

Aluminum core curcuit boards

DIANA develops the first printed circuit board with aluminum core. This market innovation fundamentally improves the thermal management of our lights and extends their lifetime many times over.
Timeline Image 18

The first LED machine light

The fascination for LEDs is unbroken: the first LED machine tool light with protection class IP68 is produced by DIANA. The built-in M12 sensor plug established itself as the standard for LED machine lights. The picture shows a used one after 11 years of service in a machine tool.

Our No. 1

The developers at DIANA had been following the research in the field of light emitting diodes for a long time. In October 2000 the time had come: DIANA‘s first LED hand light was also the first on the market.

Sluggish economy and reorientation

Growing price pressure in the supplier business, economic downturn in mechanical engineering, relocation of production abroad, competitive prices on the electronics market: DIANA has to reduce its workforce from 18 to four employees. Time for reorientation. The „Tip & Phone“ is launched on the market and is designed to make it easier for older people to use the telephone.

Fully automatic printed circuit board assembly

With the acquisition of the fully automatic Robin printed circuit board placement system, DIANA has a powerful placement potential at its disposal. The microprocessor-controlled system offers economical working even with small series. The placement arm is controlled with highest precision by a camera system.
Timeline Image 22

First printed circuit board production

DIANA has established itself and is now specialized in the development and construction of electronic devices in the field of analog and digital technology. Rich experience, good laboratory equipment and a comprehensive stock of components enable short delivery times and the ability to meet specific customer requirements. The PCB etching plant for laboratory samples and small series is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly systems of its time.

Double celebration!

On April 6, the birthday of our company founder Klaus Weller, DIANA Electronic-Systeme GmbH is entered in the commercial register under the number HRB 1149. The company name DIANA can be derived from the terms DI-gital and ANA-log. As a manufacturer and service provider in the field of industrial electronics, we were able to inspire our customers with our expertise from this day onwards.
