WEBINAR "Secure Smart Lighting: Unlocking a Building's IoT Potential"

WEBINAR "Secure Smart Lighting: Unlocking a Building's IoT Potential" Smart lighting does more than illuminate a space. Beyond energy conservation, a smart lighting system can serve as the infrastructure for building automation, and data collected from the smart lighting system are used for advanced applications such as space optimization, building security, and mobile asset tracking. With these new use cases, requirements for a commercial-grade smart lighting system are changing and security is becoming top of mind. This webinar, sponsored by Arm Ltd., is for LED manufactures, lighting control/sensor providers and system integrators, covering key considerations for commercial smart lighting systems including connectivity, interoperability, and end-to-end security.

White Paper: FluxGage - A Photometric Test System for LED Luminaires Based on Solar Panels

White Paper: FluxGage - A Photometric Test System for LED Luminaires Based on Solar Panels We present a novel photometric test system for LED luminaires. The new photometric system called „FluxGage“ uses solar panels to detect and measure light. By placing a diffuser and a black pinhole array over a solar panels we achieve a detection surface which is also an absorber. This enables the system to be the same size as the DUT (Device Under Test), as opposed to an integrating sphere which is at least 3 times larger than the DUT. Simulations and experimental results show that this system can measure total flux with an uncertainty of 4.3%. The demonstrated system is used in 2π geometry. The system measures total flux, color parameters (CCT, CRI, chromaticity, etc.) and flicker. Read more »
