  • Patent number: 10900624
    Abstract: A wall mounting bracket for a light fixture. The mounting bracket has an oblong body defined by oppositely disposed, generally parallel upper and lower surfaces. A mounting surface is disposed at one end of the oblong body, generally perpendicular to the upper and lower surfaces. A stem port passes through the body from the upper surface to the lower surface. A transverse port passes through the oblong body from the mounting surface to the stem port. The stem port has threaded openings in each of the upper and lower surfaces for receiving mounting stems from light fixtures. The mounting surface may be attached to a wall in any orientation or rotation so as to permit light fixtures to be oriented to one or both sides of the bracket.

  • Patent number: 10890831
    Abstract: A gimbal structure includes an electric motor including an electric motor output shaft and an electric motor housing, a gimbal shaft assembly coupled with the electric motor output shaft, and a slidable lock mechanism arranged at one of the electric motor housing and the gimbal shaft assembly. The slidable lock mechanism is configured to switch between an engaged state and a disengaged state. In the engaged state, the slidable lock mechanism engages with another one of the electric motor housing and the gimbal shaft assembly to limit rotation of the gimbal shaft assembly relative to the electric motor. In the disengaged state, the slidable lock mechanism disengages from the other one of the electric motor housing and the gimbal shaft assembly to release restriction between the gimbal shaft assembly and the electric motor.

  • Patent number: 10887956
    Abstract: An LED control system is provided for connection to an LED lighting system via a power line to control the LED lighting system using commands formed by manipulation of frequency and amplitude of a signal transmitted over the power line. The signal may be for example a wave or a sequence of pulses. The signal may be provided in superposition with line power or the line power may be formed as the signal. The signal can be provided intermittently and a carrier wave also provided and modulated at the same time as the signal. When the signal is not being produced, the power on the power line may be power that is allowed to flow without manipulation from an external portion of the power line.

  • Patent number: 10845038
    Abstract: A twist-and-lock mounting bracket may secure a lighting fixture to a mounting surface. The twist-and-lock mounting bracket may define an aperture having features corresponding to the shape of a twist-and-lock element disposed on a housing of a lighting fixture. Accordingly, the twist-and-lock element may be configured to extend through the aperture while the corresponding features of the twist-and-lock element and the aperture are aligned. The housing may then be rotated such that the tabs do not align with the corresponding features of the aperture, and the twist-and-lock element is thereby prevented from sliding through the aperture. The mounting bracket may be secured to a junction box positioned within a mounting surface, or it may be secured to a biasing bracket having one or more second resilient members configured to engage the interior of a recessed can light, such that the lighting fixture may be secured to the recessed can light.

  • Patent number: 10829244
    Abstract: A lighting device for a vehicle. The lighting device includes an LED having a central axis. light distribution of light emitted by the LED is substantially symmetric about the central axis. The lighting device also includes a reflector for reflecting at least a portion of the emitted light. The reflector is positioned relative to the LED such that a combined light distribution of the emitted light and reflected light is not symmetric about the central axis and a maximum light intensity direction of the combined light distribution of the emitted light and the reflected light is angled with respect to the central axis. The position of the reflector relative to the light-emitting semiconductor device is adjustable such that an adjustment to the position of the reflector changes a direction of the maximum light intensity direction of the combined light distribution.

  • Patent number: 10801702
    Abstract: A light fixture may include a dome member including exterior and interior surfaces, and a panel positioned adjacent to the interior surface of the dome member. The panel may comprise carbon fiber. The panel may provide a mounting surface to which circuit boards including LEDs are mountable. The panel may include raised portions and recessed portions, which provide a mounting surface to which the circuit board(s) may be mounted. The circuit board may span the distance between adjacent raised portions of the panel, spanning a corresponding recess. Such a recess may provide for an air gap for improved air circulation. The fixtures may be used in corrosive environments, to provide a useful life that is extended relative to what the lifespan would be if the panel were not carbon fiber. Examples of corrosive environments include livestock facilities, enclosed agricultural facilities, coastal highways, sewage and other water treatment plants, etc.
