GRE’s SEL-20kA Answers the Threat of Power Surges

GRE’s SEL-20kA Answers the Threat of Power Surges LED lighting investments can cost thousands of dollars - ignoring the possibility of unchecked power line transient voltage surge can be devastating. GRE Alpha’s surge protection device acts as a flood wall that guards against transient voltage surges, enabling the lighting system to stay intact, and saves the costs associated with replacement. The risk of surge-related damage is even greater today, due to LEDs being more complex than in the past. Dimming and other functionality have resulted in more parts and circuits that can be damaged or destroyed by a lightning or power surge. So, how can you protect your investment, while still utilizing state-of-the-art lighting technology? Read more »

Warm Dimming and the Future of LED

Warm Dimming and the Future of LED As LED lighting grows in acceptance and popularity, so does the need for better and more ranging color quality. Traditionally, LED lighting gave off a stark white, cool glow that was harsh on the eyes and made it difficult to use as a primary lighting source. Warm-dim LED technology has toned down that cool coloring, dynamically shifting the current and future applications of LED lighting management systems. Dimmability with a warm glow effect creates more opportunities than ever for LED lighting management systems. Read more »
