Rich document Code Mercenaries Offers a New Approach for Configuring IEC62386 (DALI) Buses with BusMaster
DALI is a well established option for lighting control in SmartHome and SmartBuilding applications. Costs for DALI 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.
Rich document D source code ProLight Opto Announced 9-chip Automotive Headlamp LED

Rich document Goniometer LGS 650: Higher Accuracy and Reproducibility
Goniophotometry is an absolute measuring procedure that can achieve a higher level of accuracy than sphere photometry. It does not require a luminous flux standard, but in contrast is often used for calibrating standard lamps for luminous flux. In addition to the luminous flux, photometric spatial radiation properties, so-called luminous intensity distribution curves and the colorimetric distribution of radiation emitted from a light source can be determined. Partial luminous flux, i.e. the photometric radiant flux in a limited solid angle range, can also be measured for e.g. the evaluation of the energy efficiency class of a test sample.
Rich document D source code Cree® XLamp® High Current LED
The XLamp High Current LED Array family is optimized for best-in-class lumen output, efficacy and reliability at high drive currents. XLamp CMA LEDs share the same package design and LES sizes as Cree's industry-leading CXA2 Standard Density LEDs, enabling lighting manufacturers to address a range of performance requirements for applications such as track, downlight and outdoor lighting using a single easy-to-use platform.
Rich document Lumileds RGBW Module Achieves Breakthrough Flux and Color Control
Lumileds, a global leader in innovative lighting solutions, today introduced the Luxeon MultiColor Module 2.5 W, a compact RGBW module that produces leading flux and achieves exact color points in architectural and general outdoor lighting applications. The 4-in-1 module simplifies system design by combining red, green, blue and white emitters in a compact 5050 footprint, PLCC package. "We designed a barrier between the color and white emitter to eliminate the problem of crosstalk, allowing designers to consistently achieve the exact color point they are targeting," said Jennifer Holland, Product Line Director at Lumileds. Crosstalk can occur when a direct LED excites the phosphor in a neighboring white LED, altering the emitted color.
