Rich document VCS/ICS calendar Visual Appearance: Perception, Measurement and Metrics
Visual appearance is one of the most critical parameters affecting customer choice and needs in products. We use the response from our visual sense to process the complex patterns of light around us into objects, space, location and movement, and from that information, we make judgments leading to a particular course of action. For example, how we perceive the visual appearance of a product may cause us to buy it, reject it or even write to complain about it. We may choose to buy a particular food because its appearance suggests freshness. Our choice of car may have been influenced because its glossy appearance made us think of quality and prestige. Alternatively, we may reject a particular surface finish because its appearance suggested poor quality and the presence of defects. All of these examples represent judgments made on appearance.
Rich document Nedap Introduces Luxon IoT Node for Outdoor Lighting
Nedap is extending its Luxon IoT Node portfolio with a version developed for smart and wireless outdoor lighting control: The Luxon IoT Node Outdoor.

Rich document PS document Enriching Horticultural Lighting for Faster Growth and Better Crops
Horticulture lighting is no new lighting application, but it gained momentum with the introduction and evolution of LED lighting, and it is meanwhile one of the fastest growing markets in lighting. Dr. Richard Blakey, Application Engineer at Würth Elektronik eiSos, explains how LED-based horticultural lighting can deliver even bigger advantages for commercial growers by introducing additional wavelengths that increase photosynthetic response - like Würth Elektronik's new members of the WL-SMDC SMD Mono-Color Ceramic LED Waterclear family that is used as a reference in the article.
Rich document 48 VDC Integrated Drivers Offer New Options
LpR 70 Article, page 102: In the telecommunication and IT businesses, especially, 48 VDC grids have become quite popular. This growing global trend to facilitate direct current (DC) power supply in building "microgrids" presents new opportunities for solid state lighting designers. TE's Lighting Industry Manager, Ron Weber, and Global Product Manager, Scott Hamilton, describe how LED lighting fixture designers can now design luminaires around a 48 VDC constant voltage input, available to take advantage of the benefits of a low voltage DC distribution grid in a building.
Rich document TU Vienna - New Method to Generate Light from Exotic Particle States
A new type of light-emitting diode has been developed at TU Wien. Light is produced from the radiative decay of exciton complexes in layers of just a few atoms thickness.
Rich document EzyLED™ Reduces Circuit Driver Complexity
American Bright, a global LED lighting solutions manufacturer, announced a series of EzyLED 3030. American Bright's EzyLED™ is a proprietary LED device with a built-in IC.

Rich document EPtronics Introduces Latest LP25W & LP40W Rev C Programmable LED Drivers
EPtronics is delighted to announce its newest generation LP Series of programmable constant current LED drivers. The LP25W and LP40W Rev C Series are the latest flicker-free, best-in-class drivers included in UL's Class P LED Driver Program. This UL listing program can save significant time and costs for LED luminaire manufacturers, allowing them to quickly substitute existing LED drivers with pre-approved EPtronics drivers without the need for recertification by UL.
Rich document Standardized Programming of Lighting Components Using NFC Technology
LpR 70 Article, page 88: NFC programming of LED drivers is rapidly gaining popularity as a fast, feature-rich, flexible and easy method to set the operating characteristics of LED drivers inside luminaires. Arnulf Rupp, Chair of MD-SIG, describes how the MD-SIG specification for NFC programming of lighting components makes it easy for luminaire manufacturers to use NFC programming in a production line where multiple brand drivers are used one after the other.
Rich document Lumileds Tailors Luxeon IR Family for Cost Conscious High Power Applications
Lumileds introduced the Luxeon IR 2720 Line, high power emitters that set the standard for abundant radiant power delivered in an industry standard package for seamless integration in existing designs. The emitters provide high radiant power of up to 1,300 mW at 940 nm or 1,250 mW at 850 nm wavelength and feature high efficacy and a popular 120° beam angle. The 2.75x2.0 mm LEDs are undomed and especially useful for applications with package height limitations that prevent the use of domed solutions. The emitters address a wide array of cost conscious infrared applications from surveillance and machine vision to iris scanning and health monitors.
