Field trials of LED outdoor lighting demonstrate benefits to potential adopters
The LightSavers consortium of cities is undertaking an extensive and coordinated series of trials of LED outdoor lighting products, with a view to persuading the relevant authorities to adopt the technology, writes PHILIP JESSUP.
LED industry requires versatile equipment to suit different needs
Collaboration with equipment suppliers can help LED manufacturers to get equipment specifically designed or adapted for their needs, and can also result in shorter development cycles for new products and process flows, according to Thomas Uhrmann and Thorsten Matthias.
LED lighting must work with legacy dimming technologies
To achieve broad market success, LED lighting manufacturers must deliver products that offer dimming capability that is at least equivalent to incandescent lighting, and SSL luminaire design must support legacy dimming controls, explains David Cooper.
Active cooling can boost lumen output in LED lighting
Active cooling technology can offer thermal capabilities that are superior to passive heat sinks and can raise lumen output and extend LED life in solid-state lighting, says Ryan Ahearn.
Raleigh LED lighting projects demonstrate durability and savings
Beginning in 2007, Raleigh, North Carolina, was among the first cities to install LED-based lighting, and has demonstrated energy and maintenance savings over a long term with better-than-expected lumen maintenance, says MAURY WRIGHT.
Is the lighting industry now in the mood for OLEDs?
OLEDs are evolving as complementary sources for indoor lighting, says Verbatim’s JEANINE CHROBAK-KANDO, who provides an overview of technology, desirable characteristics and the current status of today’s OLED lighting products.
Coordinated circuit protection enhances AC-LED luminaires and lamps
Properly-deployed components can protect AC-LED-based lighting-system designs from over-voltage, over-current, and over-temperature conditions while meeting safety and performance standards, say Barry Brents and David Neal.
