Tyco Electronics (TE) (Harrisburg, PA) has introduced an innovative
solid state lighting (SSL) solution - the NEVALO SSL system - designed
to accelerate lighting manufacturersí transition from traditional light
sources to new LED lighting fixtures. This comprehensive system
combines the many new components and disciplines of SSL systems into
one simple, coherent packaged solution. The NEVALO system includes over
60 LED Light Module (LLMs) options, ranging from 300-to-3400 lumens, in
form factors for popular lighting applications; optics in total
internal reflection and reflector styles; drivers with constant current
output, dimming-control capabilities and temperature monitoring; and a
new ribbon-based, four-wire configuration wiring system that is
physically keyed and color coded for polarity, accurate power
connections and ease of manufacturing.
This week’s Question: The Department of Energy (DOE) has set a goal of building a battery that stores energy for less than $100 per kilowatt-hour, making stored wind and solar energy competitive with energy produced from traditional power plants....
