LED LIGHTING: Technologies Overview

3.00 p.m

Speech title: LED Lighting Revolution

Speech abstract: LED technology is new Era for lighting. Technology is improving constantly. Getting more efficient, reliable and green day by day. To adopt this technology reliable and quickly, some key technical points has to be considered by LED Fixture Manufacturers. We would like to underline those critical parameters and show some of  the LED based fixture installations around the world.

Mauro CERESA  Field application Engineer, CREE

3.20 p.m

Speech title: LED light module to displace traditional lighting with plug-and-play solution

Speech abstract: Helieon combines LED Array products from Bridgelux with Molex interconnect technology to create a socketed plug-and-play solution that can be easily integrated into a wide variety of luminaires. The separable source and socket system emulates a traditional bulb and socket, allowing manufacturers to deliver a variety of lighting effects from a single luminaire design. Initial product offerings include between 500 and 1,500 lumens in 3000K warm white or 4100K neutral white, combined with precision optics to deliver narrow, medium or wide flood beam angles. The product’s simple, adaptable design, high performance and competitive price point give lamp and luminaire manufacturers unprecedented flexibility and opportunities in design and marketing.

4.00 p.m

Speech title: Solid State Lightings: LED Driver Technology Overview 

Speech abstract: The Design of LED Driver for high power lighting systems has to answers many requirements that starts with a plethora of standards and norms (i.e. EMC, Safety, etc), cannot forget many other critical aspects like efficiency, thermal managements, architecture optimisation, and has to grant a life comparable to the one of the LED technology they aim to drive.  And this doesn’t close the list since the LED drivers have to fit in a more complex system subject to the environment: the lighting system.

Technical Workshop

4.30 p.m

Speech title: New Power Components for High Power LED Applications 

Speech abstract: For high-power LEDs, a controlled current power supply is needed to maximize the efficiency advantage of an LED. The V•I Chip PRM regulator and VTM voltage transformer are designed to provide a regulated voltage. In order to use the PRM and VTM to power an LED, it is therefore necessary to modify the operation of the PRM to provide a regulated current. This is accomplished by the implementation of a current amplifier and compensator.
