eldoLED to Focus on Light Quality and Digital Innovation in the LED Driver at LIGHTFAIR® International 2019

ATLANTA -- May 9, 2019 – Quality of light technologies will be the prime focus of eldoLED’s display and discussion at LIGHTFAIR International 2019, May 21-23, held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA, Booth #1201.  eldoLED® is a world leader in the design and manufacture of intelligent drive solutions for LED-based lighting systems.
 
eldoLED has created hardware and software solutions to make it easier for OEMs and specifiers to generate consistent, quality lighting performance across a space. As demand for connected solutions that offer dim-to-warm or tunable white light expand, so must the functionality of the drivers that provide the primary electrical connection. eldoLED has an established history of setting the standard for superb dimming and flicker performance. Innovations such as LightShape technology, which helps to ensure smooth and preferred illumination behavior, continue to raise expectations for LED driver capabilities.
 
As the industry moves to tunable lighting in its many forms, the problem of consistency and uniform quality at scale become increasingly complex. “Imagine trying to get 100 showers to produce exactly the same flow and temperature at exactly the same time,” said Chad Stalker, Vice President - OEM Sales. “Now imagine adjusting a hundred or a thousand tunable white luminaires to dim or brighten or change color at exactly the same time without being able to notice variation. This is just one of the challenges we’re helping hundreds of OEMs in North America resolve with advanced, digital driver solutions.”
 
eldoLED has developed a driver architecture that is 100% digital and works seamlessly with virtually any protocol, including DALI DT-8. “Two-way communication and control are critical to the success of complex lighting installations,” said Stalker. “Many of the critical light control and management requirements can be handled in the driver and by technologies like LightShape. By doing so, the job of installation and commissioning becomes less onerous and on-site conflicts can be minimized.”
 
Quality of light has become the overarching focus of the illumination segment. As the DLC has called for in its V5.0 draft of technical specifications, metrics should include a broad range of issues including flicker, dimming and controllability and color quality. “Though some have reportedly stated that these specifications will be too hard or expensive and time consuming to address, they are in fact elements that eldoLED already specifies for its driver solutions,” said Stalker.
 
As the lighting industry continues to evolve with demands for increased spectrum control and light manipulation, eldoLED innovations will support specifiers and OEMs in their effort to ensure that the quality of light realized from a single luminaire can be replicated and coordinated across a room, a building, or a site.
