Specification and Applications for ProLight Opto's Recently Released UV-C LEDs

Specification and Applications for ProLight Opto's Recently Released UV-C LEDs Escalation of the Coronavirus outbreak have led to higher demand for Ultra-Violet C (UV-C) LED around the world. UV-C as a germicidal light source can inactivates microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA with its short wavelength. The effective germicidal wavelength is between 200-290 nm; shorter wavelength is more efficient but is also more damaging to the human body. The major chip manufacturers make 265-285 nm as mainstream wavelength, because it can improve single chip's radiometric power and increase in sterilization efficiency. Read more »

Advanced "Super-Planckian" Material Exhibits LED-Like Light When Heated

Advanced "Super-Planckian" Material Exhibits LED-Like Light When Heated Could there be a new kind of light in the universe? Since the late 19th century, scientists have understood that, when heated, all materials emit light in a predictable spectrum of wavelengths. Research published this week in Nature Scientific Reports presents a material that emits light when heated that appears to exceed the limits set by that natural law. Read more »

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED There is always a conflict between CRI and luminous efficacy. As widely understood, a promising color rendition which means a relatively full-spectrum is negative for luminous efficacy because the enhanced long-wavelength spectrum does not help with increasing the luminous flux which is at peak 555 nm sensitivity. The release of the 3rd generation of 2835M and 4th generation of 3030 LEDs aims to provide a balanced solution and improve the efficiency without sacrificing color rendition. Read more »

Code Mercenaries Offers a New Approach to Configure IEC62386 Buses with BusMaster

Code Mercenaries Offers a New Approach to Configure IEC62386 Buses with BusMaster IEC62386 is a well-established option for lighting control in SmartHome and SmartBuilding applications. Costs for IEC62386 components have dropped in recent years and the selection of components has grown significantly. Though the configuration of the bus remains a challenge for the installers. The cabling is quite different from classic cabling since the bus has to run parallel to the power line. But the major problem is the usually very complicated deployment software for setting up the configuration of the bus components. Read more »
