Samsung announced that it is introducing a new 129lm/W high efficiency, chip-on-board (COB) family of LED packages, LC013/26/40B, which features a compact light emitting surface (LES), designed for use in high performance indoor and outdoor lighting, and ideally suited for spotlight applications. The series – LC013/26/40B, features a 129lm/W light efficacy at 80 CRI (Color Rendering Index) and 5000K CCT (Correlated Color Temperature) and is available in 2700K, 3000K and 4000K versions. By adopting chip-on-board technology that utilizes metal core PCBs, the new COB family offers outstanding color uniformity and light quality, while achieving a high luminous flux of up to 6000lm in a single LED package.
Hyundai Motor today unveiled Fluidic Sculpture in Motion, its innovative light sculpture inspired by Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture design philosophy, to be featured in Milan Design Week(from April 9 to 14, 2013). Fluidic Sculpture in Motion is performance art created by lights, lasers and interactive media, inspired by the formation and transformation of the natural world, creating shapes and three-dimensional images of great visual impact. The performance, which repeats itself every seven minutes, begins with virtual rain recreated by laser light, followed by an interactive phase, in which human presence allows the creation of striking three-dimensional images
The Kreios SL, the first LED spotlight from Osram, is celebrating its debut in Frankfurt (Prolight + Sound fair). With luminous flux exceeding 3000 lumens, it is currently the strongest LED spotlight available on the market. The luminaire is ideal for effect light with exhibitions, fairs and shows or as background lighting for studio recordings. Kreios SL replaces standard 100 W to 250 W halogen spotlight solutions and is an especially economic alternative for event and studio experts; the spotlight has a service life of up to 30,000 hours, and relamping is not required.
Osram Ostar Stage LEDs from Osram offer high luminance of 48 million candelas per square meter and tunable color tones from cold white to warm white. Combined with their extremely low-profile design and glass cover with its anti-reflective coating, Osram Ostar Stage LEDs provide the basis for compact spotlights with an extremely narrow beam. The special feature of the new LED is its tunable white light color. Two warm-white and two cold-white chips, arranged diagonally in the package, not only enable colors to be mixed perfectly at component level but also allow all white tones between color temperatures of 2700 Kelvin (K) (warm white) and 10,000 K (cold white) to be produced with appropriate control.
Panasonic japan today announced the hands free LED clip light BF-AF20P in different pleasing colors. The Panasonic BF-AF20P LED light can be used also as a clothes clip to dry clothes. The angle of light can be also adjusted. The LED clip light BF-AF20P is splash proof and can used to light the balcony during festivals- you will have turn on/off each LED clip light.
The new generation of Topled and Mini Topled LEDs from Osram have been tailored to the demands of public and private passenger transport for high brightness and high quality. These light sources for interior illumination combine pleasant white light with a much longer lifetime of up to 50,000 hours. The LEDs are among the most economical on the market because as low-power components they consume only 0.1 W. Despite their low power their luminous intensity is impressive.
Osram has illuminated the tenth cruise ship of the Aida fleet with 9,000 lamps and more than 1 km of LED strips. The ship was inaugurated with the name of Aidastella as the tenth ship of the Aida fleet in Rostock-Warnemünde, Germany on 16 March 2013. In order that the star (Stella in Latin) can attain its full brilliance, diverse areas were equipped with specifically suitable light: 9,000 Osram halogen Eco lamps and 1,200 metres of flexible LED modules ensure both white and coloured light, and impress with a longer service life, the LED modules with 50,000 hours having an up to 50,000 times higher operating duration than standard incandescent lamps.
Available until now with a halogen lamp, Osram has now equipped the reading light for vehicle interiors with LEDs. The new Onyx Copilot reading light with long-lasting light emitting diode technology has a service life of 5,000 hours, and it is not necessary to replace the LED during this time. For comparison, the halogen lamp had to be replaced after about 1,000 hours. The neck of the light is manufactured with black silicone rubber and can be individually aligned according to needs. The light fixture can be simply attached to the cigarette lighter. A button for switching on and off is located on the light head. The light is suitable both for cars (12 V) and trucks and buses (24 V).
The infrared Oslon black SFH 4725S is a secret agent in more ways than one. Not only does its light have a wavelength of 940 nanometers, making it virtually invisible to the human eye, but its black package reflects almost no ambient light whatsoever. Together with its high optical output of almost one watt, this infrared LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors is the ideal light source for covert surveillance. Concealed security systems – such as those installed in banks, on machinery and at border controls – need to be designed so they are unobtrusive.
Casio announced today the release of a new addition to the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. Based on an aviator concept, the GA-1000 offers a face design for superior readability and instant information recognition even under challenging conditions. The watch’s expansive face boasts a large index and bold Arabic numerals. The watch also provides multiple types of information at a glance using a combination of digital and analog technologies: the analog hands constantly indicate local time while the digital LCDs provide world time. The GA-1000 boasts both the readability and functionality required in the environments where pilots operate.
Osram is offering a limited edition of the high performance Night Breaker Plus lamp for the fifth anniversary of the Night Breaker family. In the past five years, Night Breaker has become the most successful automotive retrofit product in the history of Osram, and it’s for this reason that the market leader for vehicle light applications is offering a special limited edition. 250,000 twin packages, so-called duo boxes, contain H4 or H7 lamps with a cap of 24 carat gold. As with all Night Breaker Plus lamps they supply up to 90% more light onto the road than standard car lamps, and emit a light cone up to 35 metres longer. They also supply light that is up to 20% whiter than conventional halogen sources.
Osram Rollercoaster designer luminaire features industry-mature transparent OLEDs for the first time
Osram luminaire in the form of the Rollercoaster designer luminaire features industry-mature, transparent OLEDs for the first time. The luminaire has the appearance of a glass and metal sculpture in switched-off state and is transformed into a luminous element of design when switched on, reminiscent of a roller-coaster with its möbius form. OLEDs are expected to be the primary choice for transparent, wide-area light sources in the future, because in contrast to LED they emit wide-area light directly, so that efficiency losses from the conversion of ‘point-sourced’ to wide-area light no longer occur. In addition, OLEDs are not dim but absolutely brilliant and clear. They thus enable room partitions that when switched off are similar to transparent glass and in switched-on state light up opaquely.
Kyocera today announced the schedule for the 2012 illumination and concert events to be held at its headquarters building in Kyoto City, Japan from December 13 through 31. Kyocera has been presenting this holiday season illumination event to help invigorate the local community ever since the company’s current headquarters were established in 1998. This year’s illumination has made a complete switch to use of energy-efficient LED lighting in order to reduce energy consumption. In the evenings, the Kyocera headquarters building and the public garden area in front of the main entrance will be transformed with roughly 200,000 LEDs of various colors, background seasonal music, and an 86-meter giant Christmas tree display.
Clark Griswold, the bumbling patriarch of the Griswold clan portrayed in the 1989 classic “Christmas Vacation,” has nothing on Storms. The Nvidia compiler verification engineer is everything Griswold is not: meticulous, energy-efficient, safety-conscious, and considerate of the neighbors. While Griswold infamously put up 25,000 energy-sucking incandescent lights, practically blinding the couple next door, Storms is more careful.
