Lighting and emergency lighting

  • Recolight supports government’s proposed 2017 UK lamp recycling target

    Defra has today proposed a 2017 lamp collection target for the UK of 6009 tonnes.  They have said they would particularly welcome evidence from stakeholders to support or indicate if an alternative target may be appropriate.

  • Gooee enters South America

    Smart lighting start-up Gooee, creator of a ‘full stack’ cloud-based platform that connects lighting manufacturers to the IoT, has extended its international reach to South America by partnering with the Lumicenter Lighting Group, the Brazilian provider of conventional and LED lighting solutions.

  • Improved flexibility for LED drivers

    LED drivers, essential to the performance of any LED lighting, need to be sufficiently flexible to adapt to different conditions. Markus Rademacher of Tridonic explains how new technologies are helping

    Readers will clearly be aware that at the heart of every LED luminaire is an LED driver and that the most important parameter of the LED driver is the output current. Essentially, in an LED circuit, mains voltage is converted to a constant voltage and the LED driver then converts this to a constant current. This current determines the operating temperature and therefore the lifetime of the luminaire.

  • Focus on merchandise

    When it comes to lighting for the retail sector, Megaman has introduced new Perfect White LED technology that promises to make whites whiter and enhance colours. The latest LED lamp and the recently launched fixtures from Megaman provide an unbeatable combination for showing merchandise to its best advantage.

  • Cut costs and emissions without compromise

    The latest generation of energy-efficient LED panel lights from leading manufacturer LUMiLife can cut a buildings energy use from lighting by up to 45%* compared to traditional fluorescent tubes.

  • Reaching the heights with LED lighting

    When specifying LED lighting it is important to be aware of all of the factors that impact on the performance of the installation. Simon Miles of Carbon8lighting highlights the key issues

    Anyone who has even a passing interest in lighting cannot have failed to notice the rapid emergence of LED lighting, that has now become the light source of choice for many commercial lighting applications. However, what is less known is the fact that the latest generation of LED modules, coupled with luminaires designed specifically, are now delivering sufficiently high light outputs for many other applications. As a result, LED luminaires can now be specified with confidence for high bay and exterior lighting.

  • BSS LED’s industrial luminaires first to receive LIA Verification

    UK industrial LED lighting manufacturer BSS LED has announced it is the first company to have been awarded approval under the LIA Laboratories Verification Scheme for an industrial LED luminaire.  

  • Compact Lighting Package

    New from Tridonic is the EMpowerLED range which provides basic emergency lighting functions and mains operation all in a compact package. EMpowerLED BASIC FX 80w AND EM powerLED CPS FX 80W are integrated with Tridonic’s Corridor Function (sCF) all combined in a low profile casing with a cross section of only 21mm x 30mm for easy integration into slim LED luminaires.

  • Emergency lighting – ‘the right tool for the job’

    Emergency lighting may not be the most exciting application for an emergency back-up system, it is, however, a vital aspect of every facility organisation however large or small. Here, Alan Luscombe, a director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd, a Kohler company, explains how system variants impact performance and protection and what to look for from a supplier.

  • Lighting up London’s Skyline

    September marks the opening of The Leadenhall Building to visitors for the very first time. Referred to by many as the 'Cheesegrater’, the building is based in the heart of the City of London located right beside London’s ‘Walkie Talkie’.  In 2012, Yorkshire based Winder Power, was contracted to be the exclusive transformer manufacturer and installer to power the land-mark building.  Now, over two years later, Winder Power’s transformers will provide a substantial electricity supply to the ‘Cheesegrater’ in the form of two 10MVA transformers.

  • New lighting management system

    Scolmore Group’s new FLOW Lighting Management System brings to the market one of the most cost-efficient lighting control systems currently available.

    The comprehensive range of new and existing FLOW products is designed to help contractors create more complex lighting installations quickly, easily and safely. What is unique to this system is the switching configuration capability which provides complete flexibility and allows the quick connection, configuration and re-configuration of circuits using a simple ‘plug and play’ concept.

  • Launch of new emergency lighting

    Security solutions provider, ESP, is expanding its growing portfolio of fire protection and security products with the introduction of a brand new range of emergency lighting.  

    Launched under the Duceri brand name, the new emergency lighting collection brings to market a product offer that has been independently tested by established photometric data test house, LUX-TSI, and complies with the latest industry standards and regulations. 

  • In the know about lighting control legislation

    With more property owners choosing to invest in energy efficient lighting, the appetite for specifying lighting controls in both residential and commercial settings is increasing.  This coupled with revisions to Part L of the Building Regulations, which call for better lighting efficiency and better lighting controls, means that contractors need to be up to speed with the latest industry developments.  Here, Kevin Norman, senior product marketing manager for Newey & Eyre, explains everything contractors need to know about lighting controls

  • Keeping up to speed with emergency lighting

    While advances in the general lighting technology are heavily publicised, it is easy to overlook the similar advances that have been made in emergency lighting. James Beresford of Mackwell highlights the key factors for specification

  • Profiting from the retrofit LED lighting revolution

    The benefits of LED lighting in commercial and light industrial applications are increasingly well known to both contractors/installers and their customers: lower energy costs, lower carbon footprint, better quality of light, longer life, and the ability to use lighting controls. Michael Morrison, managing director, Crescent Lighting, explains:

    The good news is the above benefits are now combining with the arrival of a new generation of much higher quality retrofit LED HID and LED Fluorescent retrofit solutions. These are well-suited for use in a broad range of commercial lighting, re-lamping and energy performance applications including warehouses, factories, cold rooms, education and healthcare campuses, offices and municipal facilities, car parks, stations and depots. 

  • Systematic 
lighting design

    Like so many technology-based industries, lighting has seen some significant changes in recent years, supporting the need for a more systematic approach to lighting specification. Richard Strode, managing director of Tridonic, explains

    Of course, changes in lighting technology are nothing new; they have been happening since before the invention of the candle. The pace of change, however, has increased dramatically, as evidenced by the rapid growth of LED technologies in lighting in just the last few years.
