美国能源部(DOE)固态照明计划的帖子共存

美国能源部SSL计划经理Jim Brodrick撰写

非常感谢DOE停止的所有人’上周在LIGHTFAIR®International的展位。美国能源部’固态照明团队全力参加了展会,在LIGHTFAIR会议议程上的会议上发言,在我们的展位上进行了简短的教育演讲,并在我们有空时走在地板上,以了解一下’s new and what’s coming next.

不可错过的一件事:广泛强调可控制性,连接性和“intelligent” lighting. One of the hits of the show was an LED downlight that demonstrated new levels of control over light levels, beam shape, and beam direction, and the ability to spotlight multiple different areas simultaneously, all intuitively controlled via iPad. We saw displays of lighting for 智能 offices, 智能 warehouses, and 智能 parking garages. There were large numbers of SSL products that had the capability to add integrated sensors and controls, and it was evident that control companies are working with luminaire manufacturers to get their packages built in, or at least included as an option —也就是控件所在的位置’由内部开发。显然,这是该行业的发展方向,但是由于有许多不同的控制解决方案可用,用户必然会面临众多选择的挑战。

The overall quality of the SSL products on display continues to improve. One area in which this was especially evident was color, which received much more emphasis this year than in the past. Whereas not long ago there were concerns from manufacturers that raising the CRI of SSL products would make pricing prohibitive, we saw many high-efficacy lamps and luminaires at LIGHTFAIR that boasted CRIs >90, including some purportedly at quite competitive prices. There were also a lot more color-tunable LED products than ever before, as well as an increase in claims related to light exposure and human health and productivity.

今年走在LIGHTFAIR的过道上,我们看到许多迹象,表明制造商正在认真听取用户的意见,并对其产品进行必要的改进。例如,有些LED筒灯具有窄的光束角并发出8,000多个流明,并且适用于高天花板应用。我们还看到了不乏LED翻新产品—包括相当多的经典经典白炽灯LED版本。我们看到的一种LED产品具有第二种驱动器—如前所述,如果第一个驾驶员出现故障,它会启动,从而使驾驶员的预期寿命延长一倍。 OLED产品的数量比去年少,但与过去几年相比,显示的产品更亮,更大,更均匀。我们还看到了一个有趣的混合动力车,包括一个带LED的OLED悬吊灯,用于上照灯。

尽管在LIGHTFAIR上展出的许多LED照明产品都采用了传统的外形尺寸,但是利用创新的外形尺寸来利用LED设计灵活性的产品数量却明显增加了—例如吊环和其他几何设计,以及照明表面的壁灯。很高兴看到那里’人们越来越意识到LED闪烁问题,并且制造商似乎已经掌握了其他大多数主要性能问题。例外—基于我们从许多设计师和其他人那里听到的评论—担心路灯眩光。

LIGHTFAIR展示照明’的尖端,它是固态的,并且每年都在变得越来越锐利。但与今年的LED产品一样普遍’s show, there’SSL技术开发和改进的巨大空间。在某些方面,该行业几乎没有触及到未来的照明表面,我们预计这些照明将比最新的照明产品具有更高的效率和更好的控制。那’s why we’已经很期待明年’s show.
