Dimmable LED; is that possible?

DIMMABLE LED LIGHTING; is that possible?
A common problem is the flickering of that dimmable LED lighting when you try to dim it to a low brightness.

There are just too many stories about its stability and compatibility issues with existing dimmers. As end users, we just want the LED to work with existing dimmers in our place. This eliminates any additional labour or electrical work required.

Attached picture describes how a typical dimmer will work for incandescent.

The key lies with the LED DRIVER. Generally, we have tested that the LED driver has to be constant current for it to work well with existing dimmers*. Take a look at the video we made to show dimming does work with our Elektra series downlight with a standard dimmer.



*Disclaimer: This is based on the test conducted with our constant driver and available dimmers in our showroom. The effect may differ on a case by case basis for each situation.

Organic Light Emitting Diode Power. Imagine a transparent and windowless aeroplane?

Besides having Organic Light Emitting Diode ('OLED') in Tvs or computer monitors, how about using that on the surface of a plane?

I came across this news and thought it being interesting to share!

A windowless plane that allows you to witness everything outside. The power of OLED.

LED light source and designs (LED ceiling hanging beams and bars)

As LED lighting technology becomes more stable, we began to explore different modern lighting designs to fit our LED lights. They can be LED chipset, LED bulbs, LED tubes and many more.

By insisting on using reliable driver, Lifud or Meanwell, we can ensure a long lifespan, durability and colour consistency across different lighting fixtures. Nontheless, should certain electronic products fail, we do provide warranty 1st year and lifetime support* to our clients.

This is our latest LED ceiling handing beams. They can be configured in different directions, and alignment to create a creative environment/ceiling for office or home ceiling.

White, Black and Oak brown colour frames are available.

Enquire from us today and be entitled to a promotion** on any purchase/installation of which.


Lifetime support* refers to 10 years after sales service in providing free consultation, parts replacement at cost price after warranty period.

Promotion** may differ from enquiry to enquiry, subject to availability.

Revolutionary idea: Using LED lights to transmit data (PART1)

LED lights having the ability to transmit data will bring the human civilisation in to a new era of development.

'Visible light communication' is the simplified way of describing the process where light can be use as a data transmitter. The groundwork for which was probably laid down around 1880s, where Mr Alexander Graham Bell invented a photophone. That being a device that transmitted speech on modulated sunlight.

Gradually, many significant research and development has been made in this area. With LEDs, the data transmission rate had been significantly increased to the point that streaming of youtube video is possible. The switching on and off by the LEDs, so fast that human eye can't detect, enables the transmission of hugh amount of data.

Using light to transmit data will replace the typical radio frequency methods.

I'll bring to you more updates in this area shortly.

Energy-Saving LED Lights Win Nobel Physics Prize

LED Lighting has seen an exponential ascent in developments and production over the last 4 years. Costs are coming down and reaching stability threshold (Quality of light, durability and of product) as we speak. As it reaches stability, we start to see greater creativity in the usage and display of LED Lighting. 

Congratulations to the esteem scientists; Isamu Akasaki, 85, from Meijo and Nagoya Universities, Hiroshi Amano, 54, from Nagoya, and Shuji Nakamura, 60, from the University of California at Santa Barbara!
    


Their work resulted in limitless possibilities of where where lighting can exist and be applied. Based on our understanding not many analyst can accurately estimated the scale and size of this rapidly growing industry, In the above report, it is mentioned by Royal Philips NV that current lighting market is worth $75 billion. 

Since LED lighting usually cost 2 - 5 times more, we should expect that number to balloon. LED lighting is increasing used in non traditional areas; e.g. lighting facade, events and shows.This requires supporting gadgets and components; e.g. digital controllers, timers, sensors, etc. This increases the market size too.

Based on our understanding, the top 3 lighting manufacturers today are;

1. Royal Philips NV
2. Osram Licht AG
3. General Electric
