  • Patent number: 10139156
    Abstract: An LED lighting array system includes discrete lighting modules spatially arrayed along a support member to provide illumination of items within a display case. The modules have a low overall height that results in them being mounted in a low-profile configuration at various locations along the support member. The modules include a housing with opposed first and second sets of side apertures, a plurality of internal reflecting surfaces associated with the apertures, respectively, an external lens, a multi-sided light engine and a group of side-emitting LEDs. During operation, a first portion of light generated by the side-emitting LEDs is discharged through apertures and the lens into the cooler to illuminate contents therein, while a second portion of light generated by the side-emitting LEDs is redirected by the reflecting surface through said apertures and the lens into the cooler.

  • Patent number: 8956005
    Abstract: The invention provides an elongated lighting fixture with multiple light emitting diodes (LEDs) arrayed in two groups that are angled to each other. The fixture provides an extremely broad light emitting angle and includes an elongated housing having a pair of side walls. Each side wall has a support member extending upward at angle from the side wall, wherein the side walls terminate at a central wall. A generally transparent cover is connected to the housing and extends between opposed ends of the housing. A first group of LEDs and a second group of LEDs are mounted to the first support member and the second support member, respectively. PCB boards assemblies are affixed to respective support members beneath the group of LEDs by tension clips. When the PCBs are energized by a power source, current travels from the PCBs to each LED for illumination.

  • Patent number: 8896207
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a fluorescent light fixture assembly including a ballast and a novel lighting element that includes an array of LEDs and at least one converter module that enables the existing ballast providing an AC power input to supply DC power to the LED array. The lighting element includes a body that contains the LED array and the converter modules and shares the configuration of the lighting element that is to be retrofitted. The lighting element receives power from the pre-existing ballast, wherein the converter module provides a constant current source to power the LED array. Thus, the lighting element, including the converter module, replaces the conventional fluorescent light tube in a cost-effective retrofit manner with the existing ballast.

  • Patent number: 8888325
    Abstract: An LED light fixture is provided and includes a light engine assembly having a plurality of LED light modules mounted to a printed circuit board. The light engine assembly has a substantially circular periphery. A substantially cylindrical main body portion surrounds the light engine assembly and is sized to define a substantially annular gap between an inner surface of the main body portion and the periphery of the light engine. A plurality of radially extending and circumferentially arrayed fins are positioned rearward of the light engine assembly, and a thermal pad is coupled to and positioned between a rear surface of the light engine assembly and the plurality of fins for transferring heat away from the light engine assembly. The annular gap at least partially defines an air flow path in communication with spaces between the fins. An LED track lighting fixture including the LED light fixture also is provided.

  • Patent number: 8496359
    Abstract: The invention relates to a refrigerated display case with an illuminated support member or “mullion” that efficiently transfers heat generated by at least one light emitting diode (LED) to warm and maintain door seals. The invention further relates to a low-profile, elongated LED light fixture that is retrofitted to the display case mullion to provide efficient illumination. The LED light fixture includes an elongated frame having a central hub extending longitudinally along the frame. A pair of opposed arms extending upwardly at an angle from the central hub, wherein the terminus of each arm has a curvilinear configuration that defines a receiver. At least one leg extends rearward from the central hub. Two legs are spaced a distance apart to define an elongated central cavity that that receives a fastener for securement of the fixture to the vertical support within the display case.

  • Publication number: 20130128561
    Abstract: The present invention provides a multi-adjustable LED luminaire having an integrated active cooling system to minimize heat buildup and increase operating performance. The multi-adjustable LED luminaire can have a generally cylindrical configuration, or a generally spherical configuration, and is operably connected to an elongated track that supplies power to the luminaire. The LED luminaire includes an upper housing segment having a power supply, and a lower housing segment that includes the active cooling system and an LED light engine coupled to a heat sink. The active cooling systems draws ambient air into a rearward portion of the housing and forces air over the heat sink and LED light engine. A power distribution PCB of the cooling system monitors the temperature of the heat sink and can adjust power delivery to the LED based upon the temperature.
