Telensa, the leader in connected street lighting and smart city data applications, today announced the launch of Urban IQ. A future-proof, open solution designed to connect sensors using smart streetlight infrastructure and visualise the data collected. Telensa is the world leader in smart street lighting, and Urban IQ is a natural addition. The evolution of smart city sensing is at an early stage, and cities cannot predict the mix of sensors and networks needed to support future projects. Urban IQ uses the light poles' perfect position to host multiple sensors, connected using the best-fit lighting and cellular networks. Telensa has created Urban IQ to enable cities to deploy sensors today and to support any future smart city strategy.
Rich document Highly Efficient NFC Programming Method for LED Drivers
For fast and cost-effective implementation of NFC programming for LED drivers, Infineon Technologies AG developed the NFC-PWM series NLM0011 and NLM0010. NFC programming is an emerging technology designed to replace the labor-intensive "plug-in resistor" current setting method via contactless NFC interface. Besides improving the operational efficiency by enabling automatic programming in the manufacturing line, it creates significant flexibility in the value chain. With this it reduces the LED driver variants, simplifies the selection of LED modules, and allows end-of-line configuration.

Rich document Demonstration at LpS Shows Zhaga-D4i's Plug-and-Play Interoperability of Streetlighting
Plug-and-play interoperability between luminaires and sensors and communication modules is an essential requirement for Smart City lighting. This has been the primary motivation for the collaboration between the Zhaga Consortium and the Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) over the upcoming Zhaga-D4i specifications. Both organisations are therefore proud to announce that booth C17 at the LED professional Symposium in Bregenz showcased the world's first Zhaga-D4i interoperability demonstration.
Rich document Market Entry in Saudi Arabia – with Obstacles
The international market for lighting products is getting more complicated for manufacturers. After the use of product tests by China and Russia as a hurdle, Saudi Arabia is now demanding CB Certificates and an energy label with a two-year validity period for lighting products. Hans Laschefski, Industrie Marketing Manager Lighting EMEA at UL, shows why and how external testing laboratories can help overcome these hurdles through forward planning.
Rich document Thermal and Optical Challenges for SSL in Automotive Applications
LpR 72 Article, page 50: Solid State Lighting changed the lighting environment in automotive lighting almost more than in the field of general lighting. While efficiency of the devices increased and every few weeks new improvements are reported, thermal management remains crucial and a critical part of the system. Umut Zeynep Uras, Ahmet Mete Muslu and Mehmet Arik, from the Energy Efficient Electronics and Lighting Technologies Center (EVATEG), Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering at Ozyegin University, and Fatih Goren from the FARBA Corporation, explain the dependencies between photometric, electrical and thermal parameters of an automotive lighting application.
