Connected lighting brings Cologne closer to a smart city
Connected lighting supplied by Signify is helping the city of Cologne, Germany, to become a smart city by connecting all of the city’s 85,000 light points to its Interact City lighting management system.
A ‘bright’ future for electronics - advances in optics
Scientists from Tokai University have developed new optical technologies that can help electronic devices using optical connections to keep up with the demand of modern technology - such as for devices to be as small as possible, but more efficient. In a multi-collaboration, the scientists presented their range of methods and prototypes for optics to be smoothly integrated into electronics.
Illuminated view at the world’s largest cricket stadium
Signify has announced that it is providing cricket fans in India with an illuminated view on the nation’s favourite sport as it lights the Sardar Patel Stadium (commonly known as Motera Stadium), the world’s largest cricket stadium located in Ahmedabad, in association with Larsen & Toubro.
Mitigating the China components shortage
European manufacturers hold the key to alleviating worldwide components shortages in LED and other lighting components as Chinese factories halt production in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, according to Prime Light.
Renewable inclination bolsters solar street lighting
The global solar street lighting market is transcending as an immensely lucrative sector because of the assistance gained by the market forces from global regulatory bodies and government entities. The expansive opportunities for growth that have surfaced in the market are expected to attract new players into the market.
The long road towards emissive QLEDs
IDTechEx Research have reviewed the potential evolution roadmap of material technologies in emissive displays. First, fluorescent OLED materials were developed. These offered narrow emission, maturity, and stability, but suffered from low internal quantum efficiency (IQE) due to their inability to harvest the so-called triplet states.
Automating LED BIN-code management to boost productivity
Pushed by legislation and pulled by the demands of an excited marketplace, LED lighting has quickly become dominant, serving almost every illumination need from functional to decorative. Its success has transformed production of lighting fixtures away from traditional electrical wiring challenges and now demands electronic design knowhow and manufacturing capabilities.
Innovative lighting solutions in refurbishment
Megaman has had a number of its innovative lightning solutions installed at Cae Glas Park. The new lighting design is part of an important refurbishment project in Oswestry, Shropshire. The renovation project focused on the refurbishment of public toilets in Cae Glas Park. After years without being renovated, the old toilet block had started to look dated and was showing signs of wear and tear.
The dawn of a new age in street lighting
As Emmanuel Gardette, Field Application Engineer, Future Electronics explains, midpower LEDs are now a valid low cost light source for street lights
Solid state lighting leads the way in energy savings
The continued price erosion of LED lighting has helped it displace less efficient incumbent lighting solutions and as such it can be regarded as a disruptive technology. Partly funded by the US Department of Energy, research into SSL has certainly not ceased. While some manufacturers have left the market due to the corresponding drop in average selling prices, those that are left have shown a dedication that should ensure their long-term success....
