SMD Push-to-Fix (P2F) by BJB. Solderable Mounting Elements for LED Boards

SMD_P2F_Grafik_Phase01.png BJB has developed the solderable Push-to-Fix(P2F) SMD fixing element for an especially simple and quick mounting of LED boards in luminaire housings. It is suitable for Low- and Midpower LED-Boards in linear and flat luminaires. The outstanding feature of it is the pre-attachment of the spring clip, which takes place by means of a solder plate during the SMD mounting process. During the final installation, the board is then fixed in the luminaire housing by a simple click. This can be performed by hand as well as automatically. Read more »

ZORYA – Omnidirectional Retrofit Lenses from LEDiL

ZORYA – Omnidirectional Retrofit Lenses from LEDiL ZORYA is a unique LED optics design from LEDiL with around 340-degrees of light distribution. The whole lens is covered in small “spikes” that are basically individual optics in themselves. This innovative design – unlike anything seen before in LED optics – can harness all the light from any size LED and transform it into omnidirectional lighting that mimics a traditional light bulb beam pattern.

New GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch FLICKER Spectrometer Captures Flicker Measurements

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.

MechaTronix Eyes Outdoor LED Market Revealing Next Industrial Cooler Platform

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. Read more »

Fischer Offers New LED Heatsinks with Integrated Mounting Hole Pattern

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. Read more »
