Guest blog from Tamer Kira High-brightness (HB) light emitting diodes (LED) are making driving safer, reducing energy consumption and, as a side benefit, giving automotive designers more creative license in headlamp designs. LEDs can save 50-70% of the energy use that traditional lighting technologies consume, reducing carbon emissions in the process. They also last longer, boasting lifetimes of 50,000 hours or more. And, because they turn on and off faster than incandescent lamps, they’re ideal for applications like brake lights. From a design standpoint, though, working with HB LED technologiesRead More
horticulture lighting
At the IPM 2017 fair in Essen we learned about research activities to avoid chemical inhibitors in horticulture through an adapted choice of the right spectral colors. In general, we observed on the fair that LED technology has in the market of horticulture a high growth rate of up to 50 % for the last year: This is because it is the most energy efficient lighting technology and leads to much less heating, which is beneficial for the plants and the greenhouse regulation. Plants use light first of all toRead More

Here we want to come up with some reasons, why Europe’s foremost lighting technology event is a must-attend event for industry experts, researchers and lighting designers. LpS 2016 will again cover aRead More
Automotive lighting is probably the oldest electricity powered application found on nearly any car. The job of the lights is to illuminate the road and signal other drivers that there is a car in front of them or braking. Wrong. New technologies have enabled lighting applications to perform new tasks and do a lot more than just emit light – in the automotive segment this equals tons of new opportunities to build innovative lighting solutions for front lighting, rear lighting, side lighting and interior lighting. Looking at the most common lightingRead More
Undercover Hero
When Thomas Alva Edison invented the lightbulb in 1879 he probably couldn’t imagine how important his innovation was. Light is everywhere. It’s the invention that drove the fast adoption and extension of the power grid and made electricity available for nearly everyone.    For more than a century artificial light remained a pretty simple application which we got used to so much that we tend to forget it’s all around us – even in applications like remote controls in which infrared light is used for communication. Since the introduction ofRead More

A Round Tour Through Light + Building 2016

You can certainly say that every trade fair has its own flair. But every other year there is this unique atmosphere that fills the halls of the exhibition centre in Frankfurt am Main during Light + Building trade fair. During the past couple of days about 2.500 exhibitors exhibited under the motto ‘digital – individual – networked’. Among them were important technology alliances, some of our supplier partners, and of course EBV with the EBVchips program. Reason enough to summarize some highlights, major headlines and impressions from the event. SecureRead More

Lighting Academy 2016 – Three Reasons Why To Attend

March is the month of the year, which most people in the northern hemisphere associate with the end of the winter season. In fact, meteorologically as well as astronomically, it marks the beginning of spring. The season when perceptibly and visibly daylight lasts longer. Maybe it is just a coincident, that right at this time two events will take place which are related to lighting, and even at the same place. World’s Leading Lighting Trade Fair On the one hand there’s the world’s leading exhibition for architecture and technology takingRead More
