Fulham Exec to Present Session on Future of Smart Lighting and Smart Cities at LightShow West

Fulham’s Jeremy Ludyjan, LC to speak on “Intelligent Outdoor Lighting: The Backbone of Smart Cities” to show how intelligent LEDs are foundation for smart cities.

Los Angeles, CA, USA — The future of smart cities will start with smart outdoor lighting. That’s the subject of a presentation to lighting professionals being made by Jeremy Ludyjan, Senior Director, Field Marketing for Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications. Ludyjan is scheduled to deliver a tutorial entitled “Intelligent Outdoor Lighting: The Backbone of Smart Cities” at LightShow West being held here October 11-12.

Many cities are already adopting lighting control systems for street lights, bike paths, public parking, and illumination in public spaces using wireless platforms such as Wi-Fi, Zigbee and Bluetooth mesh. More vendors also are entering the market with cloud-based software and centralized computer dashboards that offer easy integration and lighting management. Studies have shown that centrally controlled lighting has a number of advantages, including dramatic energy savings and for applications such as crowd control. Ludyjan’s presentation will review the various technologies available for outdoor lighting and how urban lighting controls are laying the foundation for other smarty city applications.

The Light Show West session will include updates on the latest smart lighting technology, including:

• An overview of the different outdoor lighting control platforms;
• Potential energy savings from intelligent lighting technology;
• Additional benefits from adding intelligence to outdoor lighting; and
• The future of outdoor lighting controls.

“Smart cities are clearly in our future, but before you can bring intelligence to traffic control, parking, waste management, and other services, you have to have the infrastructure to support data communication,” said Ludyjan. “Smart lighting is the first logical step in building a control network, since adding smart street lighting can immediately save millions in energy costs while creating a control network infrastructure for other applications.”

Smart lighting is already proving beneficial to various municipalities. Los Angeles, for example, is saving an estimated $9 million annually in energy costs by replacing its aging sodium-vapor streetlights with smart LED lighting. The smart lighting poles being installed in LA also are expanding the city’s wireless networking capacity with small cells for phone carriers.

A smart city infrastructure also enables new management and urban planning solutions. For example, Singapore is using its smart city platform to monitor traffic and control littering. Barcelona is using smart city technology for street lighting, waste management, and even to alert motorists about available parking. With smart city technology in place, city managers have access to new pools of data for big data analytics.

Fulham has been working with a variety of partners on strategies to integrate its smart LED lighting into smart city control platforms. For example, Tvilight, a Dutch company specializing in wireless control and lighting control solutions, has integrated Fulham’s WorkHorse LED fully programmable, wireless outdoor lighting systems into its smart city management platform.

The tutorial session, “Intelligent Outdoor Lighting: The Backbone of Smart Cities,” is part of Light Show West and scheduled to take place from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. October 11.

Fulham HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver Recognized for Innovation in 2017 IES Progress Report

Newest HotSpot LED Emergency Lighting Driver Listed in Illuminating Engineering Society Report for Unique Programmability, Monitoring, and Diagnostics.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that the company’s HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver has been included by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) in the 2017 Progress Report. Being listed in the 2017 IES Progress Report is a distinct honor since the annual Report showcases technically significant advancements in the art and science of lighting.

The driver was selected because of a number of innovations that were identified by the IES Progress Committee, including:

• The first constant power LED emergency driver to feature programmable power output capability;
• The first emergency driver with an integrated life data recorder to log time in standby mode; time in emergency mode, emergency events, and temperature;
• The first emergency driver to use an integrated test switch bicolor indicator light (red and green) for status and self-diagnostics; and
• Meeting the CEC Title 20 requirements for small battery chargers, as well as the specifications of the European Eco Directive.

“Inclusion in the annual IES Progress Report is a special honor since selection is made by the engineering community and is based on superior engineering, demonstrating that Fulham is truly advancing lighting technology and innovation,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “At Fulham we listen to our customers, and our R&D team is committed to developing products with functionality that addresses their needs and advances the state of illumination.”

Fulham first introduced Constant Power Emergency LED drivers in 2016 with a series of cULus-classified models that quickly gained in popularity due to their ease of installation and compliance with local emergency lighting standards. The new programmable model is designed for luminaire manufacturers looking to offer emergency capability. It uses LiFePO4 batteries to deliver a minimum of 90 minutes of power in the event of an outage, and can be programmed for lower light output to extend emergency run times.

The HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver is an example of Fulham’s growing line of clever, programmable lighting products. Programmability allows a luminaire manufacturer to stock a single driver that can be customized for different applications. For example, the HotSpot driver uses a default setting for the battery to deliver maximum output for 90 minutes, e.g. a 10W battery delivers 10W of output. It also can be programmed to extend run time, such as programming a 10W battery to run at 5W to double emergency illumination time. This means the same HotSpot device can be used in a commercial space where regulations require 90 minutes of egress lighting, or in a high-rise building that may require longer emergency illumination times.

In addition to Title 20, the HotSpot Constant Power Programmable LED Emergency Driver complies with international safety regulations, including cULus, CE and ENEC. All HotSpot LED emergency drivers come with Fulham’s 5-year warranty.
