For example, the first generation of LEDs made great leaps in energy efficiency, but they still had a short lifecycle and were not up to the performance level of traditional lighting. For this reason we developed our remote phosphor process to prolong their lifespan and improve efficiency and performance. Another example is SimpleSet wireless technology. It’s giving OEMs the flexibility they were missing by enabling them to program our Xitanium LED drivers at any point in the manufacturing process. And because system component interoperability was one of the greatest stumbling blocks to the mass adoption of connected lighting, we introduced SR drivers. These eliminated interface problems and ensured end users were not locked into a single vendor.
These are the kind of quality innovations that have helped us to shape the industry. But what does our passion for innovation mean for you today?
We are opening up new opportunities in a wide variety of applications. Think our office solutions that promote comfort and wellbeing with light that workers can personalize via an app. Or our retail solutions with dedicated LED light recipes that create memorable store experiences, enhance fresh produce – and even prolong its shelf life. Industrial customers can now gather rich insights to improve efficiency and reduce downtime via connected lighting systems that unlock the power of data. And our sensors that monitor air quality, traffic, weather and the movement of people are taking the benefits of outdoor lighting beyond illumination for municipalities.
