Rich document text/texmacs New GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch FLICKER Spectrometer Captures Flicker Measurements
With new LED lighting applications, the problem of flicker in slow-motion video has resurfaced. There was a time when this was a very common phenomenon with fluorescent lighting, but as technical improvements were made to the ballasts, the problem was largely eliminated. Today the main source of such flicker is LED lighting with particular drivers supplying power to the lights. At sports facilities, having optimal illumination and minimal flicker in the lights are important factors to consider when installing LED lighting. The lighting at FC Chelsea's famous Stamford Bridge stadium (Fulham, London, England) was recently replaced with LED lighting that creates unique illumination effects and dazzeling light displays.
Rich document RealAudio document MechaTronix Eyes Outdoor LED Market Revealing Next Industrial Cooler Platform
Just shortly after the launch of the 2x2MX, the next standardization in outdoor light engines is a fact. This time Lumileds, Ledil and MechaTronix joined forces to create a 2x6 emitter platform for outdoor use. The scope of this LED platform ranges from integration in street lights over high mast applications to industrial high bays. The heart is the Lumileds Luxeon XR-TX, sitting on the MechaTronix CoolBlock® 2x6 LX and covered by the Ledil Strada IP 2x6. Result… an ultra-compact waterproof LED engine, thermally validated, easy to assemble with off-the-shelf available components creating up to 4000 lumen.

Rich document Fulham Launches Lumoseries 150 W LED Driver
Designed for 230 V higher output luminaires such as high bays used in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, the new 150 W LumoSeries LED driver like others in the LumoSeries range, features the lowest in-rush current in the industry which means that more drivers and luminaires can be operated on a single circuit, thus reducing the cost of installation with fewer circuit panels and less wire to run.
Rich document First LightingEurope Summit – An Outstanding Figure in the Lighting Branch, Hands Over His Responsibilities
Diederik de Stoppelaar, one of the most influential and esteemed personalities in the lighting branch, has retired and passed over his responsibilities to Ourania Georgoutsakou. One of his last activities was initiating the first LightingEurope Summit, a one-day program, where a number of respected and eloquent lecturers were invited to speak. The venue, The Steigenberg Wiltcher's, in Brussels, was a good choice for this first of its kind event. About 150 lighting specialists, friends, and colleagues of Diederik de Stoppelaar attended the conference and farewell event.
Rich document C source code National Lighting Bureau: AMA Lighting Recommendations are Based on Wrong Metric
The American Medical Association’s (AMA’s) warnings about too much “blue light” at night are seriously flawed: The AMA developed them using a measuring tool that does not measure the specific kind of “blue light” the AMA is concerned about. Nonetheless, according to speakers at the National Lighting Bureau’s Annual Lighting Forum, some jurisdictions and public-transportation departments nationwide believe, mistakenly, that they will reduce human-health risks by adopting the AMA’s recommendations. Making matters worse, when applied to street and roadway lighting, the AMA recommendations could erode public safety by diminishing driver and pedestrian visibility, while also reducing energy efficiency or increasing energy costs.
Rich document Fischer Offers New LED Heatsinks with Integrated Mounting Hole Pattern
Wrongly the LED is often designated as a cold radiator and gives the impression that no further cooling is necessary. In reality only approx. 35 % of the used electrical energy is converted to light output according to the latest LED technology. The remaining amount of energy develops a heat loss in analogy to common semi-conductor elements which necessarily has to be emitted to the ambient air by means of an effective thermal management. Specifically on that point company Fischer Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG extends the wide range of products on innovative LED heatsinks.
Rich document D source code Cree’s Second Gen XLamp® XHP70.2 Extreme High Power LED
Cree’s XLamp XHP70.2 LED, the second generation of the highest output Extreme High Power LED delivers up to 9% more lumens and 18% higher LPW than the first XHP70 LED. The XHP70.2 provides up to 58% higher lumen density than the closest competitor LED of the same size, enabling smaller luminaires and better optical control for high-lumen lighting applications. The XHP70.2 features the same 7.0x7.0 mm footprint and provides an easy drop-in upgrade for existing XHP70 designs.
