MaxLite Presents LiteBars™ as Linkable Lighting with Limitless Design Possibilities

MaxLite Presents LiteBars™ as Linkable Lighting with Limitless Design Possibilities

Compact, linkable and easy to mount, LiteBars are the perfect solution for under cabinet, toe kick, cove, display, wall washing and other accent and indirect lighting applications. LiteBars can be linked for continuous runs of light up to 40 feet long, with near-imperceptible breaks in light. The ENERGY STAR certified bars are designed with a patent-pending, integrated connector that results in a separation of just 1/8-inch between linked bars. New-generation driver technology delivers smooth and even dimming performance across the entire connected run.

Dutch Town Is First in World to Install Bat-Friendly LED Street Lights

Dutch Town Is First in World to Install Bat-Friendly LED Street Lights

Signify, the world leader in lighting, today completed its first bat-friendly lighting installation in a town. Rare bats in Zuidhoek-Nieuwkoop, in the Netherlands can now go about their nocturnal business undisturbed thanks to new connected LED street lights designed specially to emit light that does not affect their natural senses and rythms. The street lights use a special light recipe that is perceived by bats as darkness, yet which provides enough illumination for residents, helping make the roads and pavements safer, while being highly energy efficient. The project illustrates Signify’s leadership in developing innovative LED technology that is both smart and supports conservation and sustainability.

Innovative XLS Product Family from Osram is Revolutionizing the Signal Lamp Market

Osram is launching XLS (eXchangable LED Signal), standardized LED light sources for signal light applications in the automotive industry. By combining standardized light sources and LED technology they will fundamentally change the automotive signal lamp sector. “For the first time, a uniform platform with four different light sources can cover all the important signal applications in vehicles. This allows simple replacements, reduces complexity and overall costs for car manufacturers and leads to faster development processes thanks to adapted standards”, said Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO Specialty Lighting at Osram. The LED-based signal lamps are scheduled to appear on the roads from the fall of 2018.

Challenges when Designing LED-Based Illumination Systems in Medical Applications and Diagnostics

Challenges when Designing LED-Based Illumination Systems in Medical Applications and Diagnostics

LEDs have become indispensable in medical technology and dentistry. But the requirements placed on these lighting products are very high: Minimized size, high, application specific color rendering index, efficient temperature management, usability and excellent disinfection opportunities are all extremely important. Prof. Paola Belloni from the Steinbeis Transfer Center Illumination Optics and Lighting Engineering and Furtwangen University, and Alexander Gärtner from the Faculty of Mechanical and Medical Engineering of the Furtwangen University discuss the requirements for different applications such as endoscopy, surgeries, dental devices, and photodynamic therapy. Further topics are the development of a self-disinfecting operation interface with edge-lit UV-A LEDs, and a new optimization approach, taking into account the reflection and absorption properties of human tissues.
