  • Patent number: 10330858
    Abstract: A multilayered illuminated laminate system including a light source positioned proximate to an edge of a light panel that includes a series of reflective paint in the shape of diamonds of increasing size is provided. The system further includes a diffuser sheet of sufficient opacity that it obscures the diamond pattern on the bottom surface of the light panel and a reinforced panel formed from fiberglass that bestows the system with scratch, abrasion, impact, and chemical resistance to meet or exceed current regulatory requirements. The light source is positioned within a clamp mount that contains the light panel, diffuser, and reinforced panel in frictional engagement without the need for an adhesive. A graphic can be positioned between the diffuser sheet and the reinforced panel to increase the aesthetic appearance of the system exterior surface, as well as moderate the intensity of the light it emits.

  • Patent number: 10187952
    Abstract: A system allows a light fixture to have a wider range of color temperatures (CCT) while limiting the warmest temperature reached at full intensity. The CCT of the light output may be controlled independently of intensity across a certain range of CCT and dependent on intensity across another range. In an implementation, both intensity and CCT may be adjusted from a single handle, where the interface positions may be divided into multiple zones. In another implementation, intensity may be adjusted from a first handle, while CCT may be adjusted from a second handle. The CCT of the light output may be limited to cooler levels when the intensity is higher, and/or the intensity of the light may be limited to lower levels when the CCT is warmer.

  • Publication number: 20140340884
    Abstract: A linear light-emitting diode (LED) tube lamp having a readily retrofittable modular structure enables consumers or manufacturers to readily retrofit the lamp by replacing an LED module or internal electronic control units that include an LED driver in maintenance or lamp upgrade without hazards. The readily retrofittable modular structure includes a core assembly in each of lamp bases for easily securing or removing the electronic control unit through a mechanical securing means, and two sets of connection modules for quickly connecting and disconnecting the electronic control unit with the LED module. The readily retrofittable modular structure may use one bi-pin or two bi-pins to connect to the AC mains via pluggable wire for delivering power to the LEDs. Thus, the LLT lamp using the readily retrofittable modular structure may be configured as single-ended, double-ended, or double-ended with double shock-protection switches and can be cost-effectively retrofitted after initial installation.

  • Publication number: 20140331532
    Abstract: Lighting strips and signs are produced using a flexible, clear and transparent substrate that is a good dielectric, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Flexible metallic power bus traces are formed on at least one surface of the substrate, extending along opposite edges of the strip, or to define the shape of alphanumeric letters or graphic designs on a sign. Conductive traces electrically coupled to the flexible power bus traces are electrically connected to a plurality of light emitting devices, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs). The flexible, clear and transparent lighting strips or signs can then be mounted or hung on a window or in a display case and provide decorative lighting and illumination without obscuring objects, since light is transmitted through the substrate. The light emitted by the light sources can be white or selected to be of one or more other colors for enhanced visual and decorative effect.
