Photocell and motion sensor are electronic devices used to manage indoor and outdoor lighting systems. These sensors are used to save energy by turning the lights on when it gets dark or when motion is detected, and turning them off when they are no longer needed.
Lamp and luminaire are common terms when talking about lighting. These terms are often confused and often used interchangeably. What do the names lamp and luminaire mean? Which term is correct to use when referring to a lighting unit?
LCD stands for liquid crystal display. LED means light emitting diode. Technically, both LCD TVs and LED TVs are actually liquid crystal displays. The same basic technology is used in both televisions. The main difference between the two is that LCD TVs use fluorescent lights (CCFL) for backlighting, while LED...
Managing the heat generated by the components is very important in the design of electronic systems. High-power components generate more heat and can cause the system to malfunction. Two different techniques, active cooling and passive cooling, are applied to protect heat generating systems.
A smart plug is a smart home device that plugs into a traditional electrical outlet and lets you control anything plugged into it via the app or virtual assistant. The smart plug makes even ordinary non-smart devices a part of the smart home network. It makes it possible to control...
Both ordinary light and laser light are electromagnetic waves. Ordinary light is a mixture of electromagnetic waves of different wavelengths. Laser light is monochrome. Ordinary light is non-directional and inconsistent, while laser light shows directional and highly consistent distribution. This is the main difference between ordinary light and laser light.
The source that provides the power required to operate an LED or LED array is called an LED driver. Constant current power supplies are used to prevent the LEDs from failing by drawing too much current. The constant current LED driver is designed to deliver a constant output current within...
In indoor plant growing, artificial light is needed because there is no or insufficient sunlight. HID, HPS and LED lamps are generally used as artificial light sources. LED grow lights stand out as a new generation solution in this field and have some advantages over HID technology.
There are two different design approaches for LED panels; edge-lit where the light source LEDs are placed at the edges, and back-lit where the LEDs are placed on the base behind the light emitting surface. What are the differences between edge-lit and back-lit?
Fog is actually a kind of cloud that forms on the earth's surface. It consists of tiny water droplets and ice particles that appear when the temperature drops. When driving in fog, you need the assistance of fog lights. So which color fog light is best in foggy weather?
Whether we want to use LED light bulb in our house or in a project, we generally have a complexity like how many watts and lumens that we need. The first question that comes to our mind when buying a LED light bulb is that; Is it enough to light...
There are two different methods for producing white light with LEDs. The first of these is the RGB method and the other is the phosphor method. The most commonly used option in the lighting industry is the phosphor method. In the phosphor method, a blue LED chip is coated with...
Zhaga is a worldwide consortium aiming to standardize LED modules used in LED luminaires. The main purpose of Zhaga is to achieve compatibility between products produced by different manufacturers. Many lighting companies around the world are among the members of Zhaga.
Technological innovations, compliance with standards, the need for resource management and energy efficiency make your projects more complex. This is why planning your lighting projects can become more difficult. Choosing the right lighting design software for your project can offer you significant advantages.
Although common grow lights emit blue and red light, these lamps come in many different color combinations. Because each color has different effects on the plant. So, what color light is useful in plant growth?
Steel plates are used for the manufacture of light poles. Plate thickness varies according to pole height, diameter, shape and local weather conditions (temperature, wind speed). In the production of light poles, aluminum is also used instead of steel, which offers a lighter and more flexible application.
Light poles used in outdoor lighting applications such as roads, surroundings, parks and gardens are made of steel or aluminum material. Both materials have advantages and disadvantages in certain applications.
