Inventronics Expands Cost-Effective, Programmable LED Driver Family

Inventronics Expands Cost-Effective, Programmable LED Driver Family Inventronics has expanded their EUK family of programmable, constant-power and IP67 LED drivers to include models at power levels of 320 W. These new models are in addition to already extensive power level range which includes 75 W, 96 W, 150 W, 200 W and 240 W models. The EUK family is well suited for applications that do not require enhanced features such as always-on auxiliary power, controls-ready features or multiple timer dimming capabilities. By optimizing the features including isolated 0-10 V and 10 V PWM dimming, there is now a more cost-effective product that still offers design flexibility, high efficiency and a reliable performance.

Access Fixtures - New "No Light Below 450 nm" Troffers for Clean Rooms and Production Facilities

Access Fixtures - New "No Light Below 450 nm" Troffers for Clean Rooms and Production Facilities Access Fixtures has released a new LED troffer that emits no UV and no light below 450nm. Named FLAT, the troffer was designed for grid ceilings of clean rooms and production facilities that require no UV and no light below 450 nm. Prior to the advent of FLAT, clean rooms and production facilities that required no-UV lighting relied on fluorescent lamps with coatings (gold lamps) or filtered lenses to block out UV wavelengths. However, coatings and filters broke down over time, causing expensive production failures. The LED technology developed by Access Fixtures renders gold lamps and filters obsolete. Read more »
