IES Releases Two New LED Testing Procedures Documents

Posted on September 10, 2014  |  Categories: Industry News

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) announces the publication of two new testing procedures standards for LEDs: (1) IES Approved Method for Measuring Luminous Flux and Color Maintenance of LED Lamps, Light Engines, and Luminaires (2) Approved Method for Electrical & Photometric Measurements of High Power LEDs

VEXICA Release Remote Phosphor Based Linear LED Luminaire

Posted on August 11, 2014  |  Categories: Technology

Cold cathode solutions provide radial smooth light output as does conventional fluorescent lighting but come with their downsides. Many LED products have been designed around standard LED technology but they usually result in hot spots that create multiple shadows. In this situation designers have utilised diffusing layers that curb the spotting effect but add inefficiency in terms of power consumption. This method can be acceptable but also comes with potential pitfalls of inconsistency of colour temperatures from batch to batch and lower light outputs.

Hubbell Lighting Arm Alera Lighting Launches Glare-Free Curv LED

Design Awards 2014: The Best Interaction Designs of the Year

Posted on August 1, 2014  |  Categories: Industry News

Interaction design has increasingly been supplementing industrial design when it comes to many of the products that we use on a daily basis, and technology continues to promise new ways to interact with objects, both within and without ubiquitous touchscreens. The Internet of Things may not yet be evenly distributed, but the Interaction category of the Core77 Design Awards continues to celebrate not only what's new and next but also the experiments and breakthroughs of the future made real.

Simplifying the Sophisticated: LED driver selection made easy

Posted on April 22, 2014  |  Categories: Technology

Evaluating and selecting an LED driver for your project doesn't have to be a daunting task. As outlined in the previous overview, an understanding of such issues as current and voltage, LED circuit topologies, dimming and flicker considerations, and multiple/independent outputs will help you ask the right questions of your driver supplier and help identify the important features essential to optimizing your lighting system performance.

The Wireless, Networked LED Goes Standard

Posted on March 28, 2014  |  Categories: Industry News

Smart, networked lighting may the next big market for building energy efficiency and automation technology. But to date, that market has been a battleground of proprietary technologies: different networks, linking up different lighting systems, in a landscape that leaves little room for future mix-and-match interoperability.
