Design Engineering Products Best of the Engineering Marketplace Compiled by Lauren Muskett, Assistant Managing Editor LEDs Lightweight GlacialLight LED Flood Lighting With PIr Motion Sensor a compact and energy-efficient 28W ac flood light for indoor and outdoor applications GlacialLight, a division of the Taiwanese technology manufacturer GlacialTech Inc., has added GL-FL30S-V2, a 28W AC-input LED floodlight with Philips Lumileds LED chips and passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor to its popular range of energy-efficient LED lighting products. This lightweight (1.4kg) floodlight, GL-FL30S-V2, provides bright and pleasing illumination suitable for indoor and outdoor retail, commercial, and industrial external lighting applications. When installed at an ideal height of between 1.8m and 2.5m, it is an excellent lighting solution for indoor car parks, private driveways, and public spaces such as hallways. The passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor of GL-FL30S-V2 lowers energy bills and reduces light pollution by preventing unnecessary use of lighting and power. The 180-degree sensor and its reaction time of 0.6 m/s to 1.5 m/s ensures that the floodlight switches on at the instance when movement is detected. The GLFL30S-V2 PIR sensor can be adjusted to detect motion from 3 lux to 2,000 lux, making it useful for both day and night use. The range of motion sensitivity can also be modified between a distance of 5m and 12m, enabling the sensor to be used in both small and large spaces. The duration of illumination time is also adjustable between a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of approximately 7 minutes. Two color variants of GL-FL30S-V2 are available. GL-FL30SV2-CW provides a 5,700K (Cool White) beam with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 70, and GL-FL30SV2-WW, which illuminates with a 3,000K (Warm White) beam and a CRI of 85. Both color versions have an input voltage range of 100V AC to 240V AC and are available with either 30-degree or 60-degree beam angle. With the environment in mind, GlacialLight designed the GL-FL30S-V2 Floodlight to contain no hazardous chemicals, such as mercury, and to create no harmful radiation emissions such as UV or IR, making them more eco-friendly than traditional lighting. This AC input floodlight is also more economically friendly compared to traditional lighting products because of both lower power consumption and greater amount of light produced. GlacialTech Inc. FL30S-V2.htm archilume Series of LED Drivers Provides super-slim form factor with extra wide range dimming for elegant illumination ERG Lighting says their ArchiLume Series of LED drivers has the slimmest Design News | March 2013 | www.d esign n –64– 100W drivers on the market for illumination applications requiring an elegant look with smooth, flicker-free dimming, and constant voltage output up to 100W with very low ripple. Available in two versions — E100W24V and E100W24V-D — both are made and supported in the US and have safety approvals for the US and Canada with a five-year warranty. They provide universal input with minimum power factor correction of 0.90 and maximum total harmonic distortion of 20 percent. The E100W24V-D features onboard dimming with no flicker, no flashing, and ultra-smooth dimming all the way down to less than 1 percent. Both drivers measure 17.36-inch x 1.33inch x 1.25-inch (441 mm x 34 mm x 32 mm) to offer the slimmest, sleekest design available. They are for applications such as architectural (office, hospitality, commercial, institutional), high-end retail (in-store displays, showrooms), home (kitchen, bathroom), and high-bay lighting. These drivers are for linear lighting applications where driving multiple strings of LEDs from a single output is required, and can be customized to suit different applications. ERG Lighting complements its ArchiLume family with a range of custom solutions. Options
