LEDs, SSL components, and lighting design
Seoul Semiconductor has announced the release of a new generation of Acrich MJT 5050 LEDs, with high lumen output, reliability, and cost performance optimized for the outdoor lighting market.
Spectar Stratus can be extruded or injection molded to diffuse the light emitted from LEDs without significantly decreasing the light intensity. Depending on the selected gauge of the final product, Spectar Stratus boasts light-transmission levels between 80 and 85 percent.
Samsung's LED modules enhanced with 90 CRI include the LT-A302 module comprised of mid-power LED packages, and the SLE series, which uses COB-type packages.
Bayer will highlight its selection of light- and thermal-managing polycarbonate plastics, films, and sheet materials at its booth (#7936) during the LightFair International trade show and conference June 3-5, in Las Vegas.
Controls/power and networks
The Quantum Vue software helps users manage lighting throughout a facility by monitoring and reporting all of the lighting energy used in a space. Building owners and facility managers can easily optimize lighting energy performance while reducing maintenance and operating costs.
Sensity Systems is showcasing its NetSense Live comprehensive management service, which ensures that NetSense end-to-end solutions are always connected, available, and secure. NetSense Live includes real-time 24x7 management of the entire NetSense Light Sensory Network platform, including the LED luminaires, sensors, wireless network and data backhaul, and all applications.
Using Lumicast technology from Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, Acuity Brands' smart LED lighting technology will allow retailers to engage with customers on mobile devices based on their location in the store.
Technical Consumer Products, Inc. (TCP) will feature its production and prototype models of new LED technology including luminaires, color-tuning bulbs, wireless color bulbs, plus a broad array of LED options that provide lighting solutions for a wide variety of applications.
Complementing the company's existing product families and technologies, the newest Lumenpulse LED lighting solutions will be showcased at booth 6408 from June 3rd to the conference's close on June 5th. Launched in the weeks prior to Lightfair, the Lumencove Nano and the Lumenfacade Inground will be officially unveiled at the conference.
The D Series downlights are rated for 24x7 installations, achieve L70 beyond 60,000 hours, and are backed by a 5 year warranty. LEDSense thermal management in the patented driver design protects the LED fixture even in the warmest conditions.
PolyBrite's Borealis T8 tube has been designed with a patented air flow and heat sink combined thermal management system, creating a more thermally efficient heat transfer and highly reliable cooling. This eliminates potential failures as is the case with conventional thermal management systems.
