OLED Technology Update

OLEDs will take their place as large-area, transparent, flexible and low-energy displays and lighting products. It is even possible to produce watches with this flexible product. Developing sufficiently durable and flexible OLEDs will require better materials and further development of
manufacturing tools and processes. In future, flexible OLED panels will become commercially available. New OLED technology will bring portable, roll-up displays to the consumer market within the next few years. The OLED display revenues will grow surely.

HID Lamps and LED Retrofit Kits

The advantages of LED Retrofit Kits over HID Lamps are obvious. HID lamps have been a powerful choice till LED light sources overtook them in efficiency, lifetime and control possibilities. Regarding energy efficient lighting solutions and ecological footprints, the decision is clearly a LED one. The investment is higher but amortization rates of less than one year leave no doubt. LED is the future now.

Tube Light Sources

The advantage of LED Tube Light Sources over Fluorescent Lamps is obvious. Fluorescent lamps have been the best choice till high power LED light sources pushed them on the second place. Regarding energy efficient lighting solutions and ecological footprints, the decision is clearly a LED one. The advantages are outstanding. The investment is higher but amortization rates of around one year leave no doubt. LED is the future now.

LED Light Color - Binning System

LED lighting systems offer a wide range of white color LEDs. Watch the light color or brightness constancy. Samples of LED projects that emit light in slightly different light colors or different luminances are reasons for bad reputations. What is the reason for that problem?

Basic Knowledge - Light Sources – Luminaires

New light sources force the designers, planners, installers and users of lighting systems to rethink their approaches and habits. The LED entered the industrial production in 1962. In the 1990ies, the LED technology has been used in signboards, mobile phones and status signals. Scientist worked hard on the efficiency of the system so that finally in 2006, the LED begun to be used commercially in different applications.

LED Light and Scotopic Lumens

Scotopic lumens are a recent development in our understanding of the response of the human eye to light. Scotopic lumen output depends not only on the absolute light output from a lamp but also on the wavelengths comprising light from a light source. Human eye has two kinds of light sensing cells – Rods and Cones. Both these cells have different spectral sensitivities. Line of sight vision is due largely to cone cells. Peripheral vision on the other hand is affected by rod cells. This, plus the fact that feedback inputs from rod cells control pupil size mean that factoring in the response of rod cells to lighting needs to be figured into the design of artificial lights.

An understanding of the concept of Scotopic lumens can deeply influence cost and performance equations of lighting solutions. This white paper explores the science behind the concept of scotopic lumens and how it can influence your choice of lighting products.

Better work environment with Led lights

Improvement in work environment is closely tied with improvement in the performance of workers. Studies have demonstrated that a 3 % gain in worker performance can be obtained with better lighting. Often the gains in worker productivity are enough to offset the cost of lighting projects in less than a year. Better lighting leads to better group performance, enhances employee satisfaction, and output.

LED Lights and Green Branding

Products and practices that help customers operate in an environmentally friendly fashion is a prudent way to cut costs. It is also the essence of going green. Cutting energy costs, reducing, recycling and reusing form the basics of this shift. Over 60 % decision makers say that a green image is a positive value addition to their business.

This is the reason why an overwhelming majority of decision makers are looking for products that can enhance the sustainability quotient of their operations, boost their reputation and minimizing risk their business.

In this white paper we shall discuss what it means to have a green brand and how LED lights can help you achieve your sustainability goals.

Lower Maintenance with LED Lights

Maintenance cost savings are a significant part of the benefits accruing for the adoption of LED technology. Companies and municipalities are adopting LED lights as these will allow them to improve service levels and reduce costs. Lower maintenance costs come from the exceptionally long life of LED powered luminaries. Payback period for LED luminaries ranges from 1- 3 years depending on labor costs and the nature of applications. The most significant energy and maintenance savings are realized from lights used in stairwells, emergency lights, etc that remain switched on 24 X 7. For outdoor lights that need cherry pickers and U haul trucks to replace, the maintenance savings are substantial and breakeven is achieved quickly. For safety and security applications - like slippery floors in poultry processing companies, perimeter lighting etc. the failure of a light can have unacceptable consequences. In these areas, the long lifespan of LED technology makes it the best choice. In this white paper we shall walk through the maintenance cost savings that are possible with LED technology.

Vibration Resistant LED Lights

All existing lighting technologies except LEDs use an electrical filament. The filament, clearly seen in an incandescent bulb is made of a thin strip of metal. Shake it too vigorously and the filament will snap resulting in light failure. This white paper discusses how the vibration resistant characteristics of LED lights can help you reduce maintenance costs.
