Considerations include physical configuration, number of LEDs, mounting technique, choice of passive-versus- active cooling, thermal modeling, and more.
This article looks at two LED families that are widely used in high mast lighting applications: Cree’s XLamp XT-E range and Philips Lumileds LUXEON-K range.
A look at utilizing linearly dimmed LED drivers with a wireless interface.
As the LED lighting industry becomes a more mainstream market, increased thermal challenges have become a huge topic in the industry.
White LEDs and the result of temperature changes including chromaticity changes along with the change in commercial chips.
Although they use and dissipate much less power than conventional incandescent lighting, LEDs still create heat in the process of converting electrons to photons.
Lighting is rapidly transitioning from traditional lamp sources, such as high-pressure sodium, metal halide, mercury vapor, and fluorescent, to high brightness light-emitting diodes (HB LEDs).
LEDs are often described in marketing materials as "cool" lighting, and in fact LEDs are cool to the touch because they generally don't produce heat in the form of infrared (IR) radiation.
