Rich document Swiss Photonics Workshop on Intelligent Efficient Solid State Lighting
Swiss Photonics held their Swiss Solid State Lighting Workshop in the Pantheon at Muttenz near Basel on December 12th of last year. The ambience of the automobile museum was perfect! The program covered a broad range of topics including Human Centric Lighting, Internet of Things and the results of the LASSIE project (Large Area Solid State Lighting Intelligent Efficient: A 7th Framework Program for Research and Technological Development). In the following article, Arno Grabher-Meyer, Editor-in-Chief at LED professional, summarizes the highlights.
Rich document Nanorod LEDs with Two Functions Could Make Multifunctional Displays
Cellphones and other devices could soon be controlled with touchless gestures and charge themselves using ambient light, thanks to new LED arrays that can both emit and detect light. Made of tiny nanorods arrayed in a thin film, the LEDs could enable new interactive functions and multitasking devices. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Dow Electronic Materials in Marlborough, Massachusetts, report the advance in the Feb. 10 issue of the journal Science.
Rich document Electrolube Launch New Thermal Phase Change Materials
Electro-chemicals specialist, Electrolube will be demonstrating a range of capabilities and special products at this premier annual event for the global LED and solid state lighting industries. Part of HK Wentworth Ltd and an established global manufacturer of electro-chemicals, Electrolube will have a strong presence at this year’s Strategies in Light exhibition, where the company plans to show a range of products designed to protect and enhance the performance of modern LED lighting products.
Rich document Out Now: Electro Terminal's Whole Range of Microcon SMD Power Connectors
The introduction of LED lighting has revolutionized the way lighting systems are designed. Simple “metal plates with electrical components” have been replaced by sophisticated electronic devices. Electro Terminal has developed the Microcon SMD Power connector to provide direct mains voltage supply to electronic PCBs within a lighting system. This connector is only 7 mm high and facilitates easy entry of solid and flexible wires of 0.5 mm² to 2.5 mm². The whole range is out now – Microcon SMDP with one pole (1P), two poles (2P) and three poles (3P). In addition, the internally connected two-way version (2C) is available to limit the current load for daisy-chain wiring on the PCB.
Rich document New Cree C1010 LEDs for High Definition Indoor Video Screens
Cree, Inc. announces the C1010 LED, a breakthrough three-in-one RGB Surface Mount Device (SMD) LED that enables display manufacturers to create state-of-the-art video displays that are sharper and more dynamic than previously possible. Featuring the best far field pattern matching and the lowest power consumption in its class, the new LED delivers 40 percent better contrast ratio and a longer lifetime than competing LEDs. The C1010 is the only high density display LED with zero cross talk between pixels, eliminating the need for louvers that add cost and weight to displays.
Rich document Reliable LED Modules for Industrial Applications Under Harsh Conditions
Warehouses, factories and multi-storey car parks all need robust luminaires that provide high lumen values. Industrial lighting has to be energy-efficient and durable. Tridonic offers the right LED light sources for diffused lighting in the form of its CLE G1 ADV IND and QLE G1 ADV IND modules. A luminous flux of 26,000 lumen per module and three different colour temperatures of 4,000, 5,000 and 6,500 K make it easier to develop and manufacture LED high-bay luminaires for industrial applications.
Rich document OEM Systems Group Promises Healthy Light at the Workplace
Work is ever more frequently leading to health problems: In 2016, the number of sick notes through mental illness has reached a new high in Germany. According to health insurer DAK-Gesundheit*, they are responsible for 17 percent of sick leaves. Thus, mental illnesses are now the second most frequent reason for absenteeism.
Rich document D source code International FLINGO Project to Improving the Properties of LEDs Has Started
In view of the growing demands placed on the electrical, optical and thermal functionality of LEDs, more and more attention is being paid to research into new material properties. The purpose of the FLINGO project is therefore to develop new materials (layers in particular) and processes to improve the characteristics of LEDs, such as efficiency and durability. The intention is to maintain and improve market leadership in innovative LED products. As the project coordinator, Osram Opto Semiconductors is working since February 2017 with renowned universities, research institutes and companies. The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research is sponsoring the FLINGO project (Functional Inorganic Layers for Next Generation Optical Devices) as part of the M-ERA.NET EU initiative.
Rich document RealAudio document MechaTronix Launches 2x2MX LED Cooler Platform
While standardizations have been mainly focusing on retail and indoor lighting application, also the field of industrial lighting is undergoing a same move. Availability of standard building bricks lead to a shorter time to market, crucial in the hectic lighting world of today. MechaTronix supports this trend with the release of its latest 2x2MX LED cooler platform.
