Proof Your Blue Light Hazard Risk: Stray Light Corrected CAS 140D

Proof Your Blue Light Hazard Risk: Stray Light Corrected CAS 140D With the stray light corrected CAS 140D Instrument Systems – as a technical pioneer – is the first to offer an array spectrometer that can reliably assess the blue light hazard from light sources within the prescribed limiting values. Hitherto only double monochromators were recommended for this task, as an underestimation of the blue light hazard was possible in measurements with a spectroradiometer on array spectrometer basis due to stray light. The CAS 140D avoids this in two ways: The optics and mechanics used in the spectrograph block are optimized with regard to disturbing stray light. Additionally, a unique stray light correction matrix is integrated in the calibration procedure. Both innovations combined ensure an up to now unachieved precision in the determination of the blue light hazard with an array spectrometer. Read more »

BJB's SMD Push-to-Fix (P2F) Solderable Mounting Elements for LED Boards

BJB's SMD Push-to-Fix (P2F) Solderable Mounting Elements for LED Boards LED boards can be installed into luminaire housings in a variety of ways. And it's often an overlooked step in the luminaire assembly process, until something goes wrong due to faulty installation of course. The question of how best to implement this assembly process in technical terms also has considerable impact on the upstream and downstream processes - especially when taking warranty costs into consideration. With its solderable SMD-P2F fixing elements, BJB has developed a solution which makes the entire assembly process easier, faster and more cost-efficient for the entire value chain. A major advantage is that these fixing elements do not have to be attached as separate components, because they are already pre-installed to the PCB itself. The components are attached to the LED board during the standard SMT assembly process (pick-and-place and reflow soldering). Read more »
