LEDs: Quality Light for Quality Food

Avoiding spoilage, bacterial growth, and contamination are a foremost concerns of food safety. However, there are ways to improve the quality and safety of food that may not be as immediately apparent as properly washing and sanitizing equipment. High-quality lighting-made possible on a large scale with the rise of LED technology-improves food safety in a number of ways during the journey from farm to table. Over the past decade, LED lighting has transitioned from an expensive fringe-player in the realm of industrial and commercial lighting into the ideal choice for efficiency- and safety-minded companies. Rapid advancements in technology have driven prices lower, and, when combined with utility rebates and energy-efficiency tax incentives, upgrades to LED lighting can be cash flow positive from day one. When compared to metal-halide and fluorescent lights, LEDs can offer superior energy efficiency and energy savings of up to 50 percent. They also run cooler, last longer, and frequently have a better color rendering index (CRI)-a number which indicates an artificial light's ability to depict colors as accurately as natural sunlight. Additionally, traditional lighting dims quickly over the course of two or three years, plunging facilities into darkness without routine maintenance. The best LED fixtures can keep facilities at ideal foot-candle levels for up 150,000 hours, more than 17 years of 24-hour use, with little to no maintenance. While these benefits are important, those in the food supply chain will truly appreciate LED technology for ways in which it improves food safety across a range of facilities, such as food processing plants, cold storage, and restaurants. Organizations like the Illuminating Engineering Society and Penn State Extension recommend more than 100 foot candles for food preparation because workers are safer and do a better job when they can actually see what they are doing. (A foot candle is a commonly used measure of brightness. The average office space and home is typically between 10 and 30 foot candles.) In these spaces, which are filled with heat-generating equipment, grinders, slicers, and more, lighting should go above and beyond the OSHA minimum. Proper lighting can prevent costly mistakes, such as slip-and-fall accidents and other employee injuries. It can also help prevent employees from dropping or knocking small items, such as tools or bolts, into food processing machinery or raw materials. Proper lighting goes beyond brightness-high-quality LEDs also provide a higher CRI than traditional lighting, as noted above. Lights with higher CRI will allow food production employees to more accurately spot mold, discoloration, and other defects. A single incident can compromise food quality and require a costly recall; bright, clear LED lighting goes a long way toward mitigating this risk by increasing visibility and making misplaced items and defects easier to spot. Thus, while LED lights do not directly increase food integrity in the way an improved sanitization method might, they indirectly improve food integrity by allowing workers and technicians to perform their jobs competently and safely. Furthermore, LED fixtures do not use mercury-filled glass bulbs to house their lighting elements. Without bulbs, there is no chance of broken glass finding its way into food. In this way, an inherent feature of LEDs provides a direct safety benefit when compared to previous, glass-covered lighting fixtures. To completely eliminate any chance of debris falling into food, purchase fixtures that feature impact-resistant construction. While LEDs provide safety benefits in all food storage environments, their impact is most noticeable in cold storage areas. Traditional bulbs have to warm up to reach full brightness. This can take anywhere from a couple minutes for fluorescents to 15 minutes for metal halides. This warm-up time is even longer in a cold-storage environment-anyone who uses a fluorescent fixture is likely familiar with the dim, purple flicker of a cold bulb. Low temperatures also increase degradation and reduce the overall lifespan of arc-based bulbs.

Display lighting is one of the most difficult things to get right. It is a compromise between illumination, cost and conservation. Light produced from a fluorescent lamp is relatively evenly distributed straight from the lamp. This means that it is very easy to diffuse it to create an even wash of light. Fluorescent tubes can be supplied in a variety of sizes and colour temperatures - from cool white to warm white. Low voltage lighting systems use incandescent tungsten halogen filament lamps powered through a step-down transformer. They work in a very similar way to a standard domestic lightbulb, but the halogen that surrounds the filament both extends its life and allows it to be driven at a higher temperature - creating very bright white light. For a long time, fibre optic systems have been the preferred choice for display cases, and with good reason. Fibre optic systems have three main components - a light source, the fibre optic harness (flexible filaments of clear glass, usually known as tails) and the light fittings, which sit at the end of the tails. The light source (a projector containing driver electronics, fan cooling and a single high-output lamp) is sited outside the body of the showcase, meaning that the heat and noise associated with high-output lighting systems do not impact on the display. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are solid-state devices. They have a significantly longer life span than other types of lighting. LED lighting is installed in thermally-efficient light bars or fittings, which can be mounted using traditional methods but with the advantage of having minimal cabling requirements.

A Potential New Breakthrough in Lighting Technology
In 2007, Congress passed and President Bush signed into law a new measure that, among other things, changed the nation's lighting policy. The law created new performance standards for lighting that would effectively phase out the use of traditional incandescent light bulbs in favor of more efficient fluorescent or LED lighting. Many opposed the phase-out on the grounds that it represented an unnecessary government intrusion into the lighting market. Others may have had a personal aversion to the "clinical" white light emitted by fluorescents or LEDs, preferring instead the warm glow emitted by traditional incandescents. Earlier this week, however, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announced a potential new breakthrough in lighting technology that could one day provide consumers with the (proverbial) best of both worlds. By surrounding the filament inside an incandescent bulb with a special crystal structure, the energy in the bulb lost through heat can be "recycled" back into the bulb to provide more light. Typically, incandescent bulbs are about five percent efficient, losing roughly 95 percent of their energy in the form of wasted heat. LEDs are about three times as efficient as incandescents, providing an efficiency of 14 percent. Remarkably, the MIT scientists believe their new bulb could eventually achieve 40 percent efficiency. On top of this improved efficiency, this new prototype bulb also emits light similar in color and feel to what a traditional incandescent emits. According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), roughly 412 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity- or 11 percent of total U.S. electricity consumption - is used annually for lighting, suggesting that a good deal of environmental good as well as costsaving could come from the eventual widespread adoption of such innovative lighting technology.1.

Brass vs. Aluminum Lighting FixturesInstalling outdoor LED lighting is an excellent way to enhance the landscape of your home, by creating silhouette images of trees, plants and shrubs. You can do the job yourself. But it pays to hire a licensed landscape lighting contractor, who has design expertise and knowledge about the different type of fixtures that will work best for your environment. Some landscape lighting firms claim they can "save you money" by offering to install aluminum lighting fixtures. It's true that aluminum is less expensive than brass lighting fixtures, at least during the initial installation. But you could wind up paying more in the long run because aluminum does not last, especially in humid climates like Florida. Aluminum lighting fixtures are low quality, and are not designed to last outdoors for a long period of time. Aluminum oxides and corrodes over time, and the paint will fade a great deal. Powder-coating can extend the fixture's life a little bit, since the paint seals the aluminum. But the fixture will still fade long before the LED bulb burns out. And since the bulb is typically integrated right into the aluminum fixture, you will have to bear the expense of replacing the entire light fixture when it wears out. Another problem with aluminum fixtures is that most of them take a lesser wattage bulb than other metal fixtures, resulting in lower lumens or light output from the fixture. Aluminum is also more susceptibe to corrosion from environmental factors such as animal urine, and they are more vulnerable to damage from landscapers. A typical aluminum lighting fixture will only last about 2-3 years, while other materials like brass, can last decades. At Elegant Custom Images, we recommend either Heavy Cast Brass or Milled Brass lighting fixtures for our landscape lighting installations. Brass is exceptional in terms of both quality and durability because it is a hard metal that holds up in all types of environments. Brass is made from a combination of copper and zinc, and will "patina" over time, developing a darker finish as it's exposed to the elements. Unlike aluminum, brass fixtures wo not corrode, making them an attractive addition to your landscape. We use brass lighting fixtures made by CopperMoon, an industry leader, with 20 years in the business. Milled brass fixtures can be less expensive than heavy cast, but are still durable and able to withstand Florida's heat and humidity. Both types of brass fixtures come with a full 25-year warranty. Brass lighting fixtures are more expensive than aluminum at the outset, but they will pay for themselves over the life of the fixture, saving you money in the long run. And should anything happen to the LED bulb or the brass fixture, a repair can be made very easily.
LED Lights Can Damage Your Eyes: Should You Be Worried About Blue Light?
New Delhi: You may have heard that excessive exposure to the 'blue light' in LED lighting is not good for your health. Now, France's government-run health watchdog warned in a statement that light-emitting diode (LED) light that is increasingly used in our homes can damage the eye's retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms. In a 400-page report, the French health authority recommended that the maximum limit for acute exposure be revised - even if most people would only rarely be able to meet such levels. According to the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES), new findings confirmed earlier concerns that 'exposure to an intense and powerful LED light is 'photo-toxic' and can lead to irreversible loss of retinal cells and diminished sharpness of vision'. Earlier, the American Optometric Association has explicitly stated that the blue light damage to the retina is a cause of concern. Effects of blue light: What you need to know LED lights are becoming popular day by day across the world as they are less expensive and more energy efficient compared to traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. LEDs are used for domestic purposes as well as industrial and commercial ones. The largest source of blue light is sunlight, and other sources include - fluorescent light, compact fluorescent light bulbs, LED light, flat screen LED televisions, computer monitors, smartphones, and tablet screens. This means you are exposed to blue light from your device - when you look at a screen for hours. The amount of blue light or high-energy visible (HEV) light these digital screens emit is just a fraction compared to the amount emitted by the sun. But, the amount of time people spend looking at the screens and the close proximity of the devices to the user's eyes is a cause of growing concern for health experts. And the ANSES reports also noted that children and adolescents, whose eyes do not fully filter blue light, are particularly susceptible to the harms of cold blue light. Earlier, a study suggested that children's eyes absorb more blue light than adults from digital device screens. Research has shown that blue light can interfere with the body's circadian rhythm - our natural wake and sleep cycle. According to Dina Attia, a researcher and project manager at ANSES, interfering with the body's circadian rhythm is also known to aggravate metabolic disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers. Eventually, ANSES recommended buying 'warm white' LED lighting for domestic lighting. It suggested that people limit their exposure to LED sources with a high concentration of blue light, and avoid LED screens before bedtime. The agency also recommended that manufacturers should limit the luminous intensity of vehicle headlights.1. Keep your PC temps low with these awesome CPU air coolersThere are several different ways to keep your PC cool, but one of the most basic and affordable is using air.

The Easiest, most cost effective way to own a Fibreglass PoolConfused about pool lighting options, lost on how to best reflect your pool's charisma.. WORRY NO MORE! This article is for you, Read up to find out which are the best pool lighting options out there. Traditional Incandescent Lighting are popular because of easy installation and low prices(at least initially) but for those of you who want a little WOW factor for their fibreglass pool should go for LED lighting. Though they are a little costlier to install than incandescent lighting, in long term they provide value for your money. Do not forget about your pool area, even though your main focus remains mostly in underwater lighting:your pool area is equally important. Apart from adding safety and aesthetics to your pool, they also make it easier to navigate throughout the area. Consider the color of your pool tile Depending on the backdrop similar pool lighting could look colossally different, the simple rule is that lighter surfaces tend to reflect light, while darker surfaces absorb it.But things could get tricky with various types of colorful lights out there.Look for pools with similar color tiles to get a grasp on how to choose the best one. It's common knowledge that soft lighting coming from lots of sources looks way more attractive than harsh lighting coming from fewer sources.So even if you decide against LED lighting and are going for standard incandescent lighting,install at least two lights in the water for a softer elegant feel.Outside the pool, use properly spaced out lighting. Solar lights cannot replace the need for an electrical fixture but they can add a flourish to your swimming pool area. You can light up the water surface or add them to the ornamental decorations. They nicely fill in the gaps and are obviously eco friendly and easy on your pocket as well.3. How do we choose LED lighting products with the best quality?I like Philips and Cree. They both make top quality lights
Terawatt Blockchain That Enables Mass LED Lighting Adoption
The Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology for lighting home or office is not a new technology on the market, however its penetration to the mass market in some third world country is still low. This is the fact that most of the buyer still think of its high investment (capital expenditure) cost compare to the traditional CFL or incandescent lighting equipment. The pricing could be 3 to 4 times higher to buy LED lamps. Actually if considering the LED life time and quality (it does not waste many energy to become heat as in case of incandescent lamp), the LED will be the king. Sometime people overlook the long run advantage of operating LED vs operating CFL or incandescent.Here is the major comparison of such lamps technology that gives the same "lighting level":Incandescent lamp: lower product price, around 1,200 hours lifespan, 60 watt used, Number of bulbs needed for 25,000 hours use (around 3 year used every day) is 21 units, contain no dangerous material but emit a large heat wave (not efficient as more power become heat then become light)CFL lamp: almost 1,5-2 times higher product price compare to incandescent, around 8,000 hours lifespan, 14 watt used, Number of bulbs needed for 25,000 hours use (around 3 year used every day) is 3 units, might contain some dangerous material (contain small amount of mercury as a toxic heavy metalat about 4 milligrams per bulb on average)LED lamp: almost 5-6 times higher product price compare to incandescent, around 25,000 hours lifespan, 10 watt used, Number of bulbs needed for 25,000 hours use (around 3 year used every day) is 1 unit only, contain no dangerous material at all and small heat wave only (only presence on the body of the LED lamp)All the data above should already give the clear picture about LED lamp advantages. Is no doubt that LED lamp mass adoption in offices or homes or as street lamps will present a more energy efficiency use and lower operating costs. Terawatt is a platform created to even help reduce investment cost of implementing LED lighting to the mass market. With the existence of Terawatt, it is expected the more and more peoples will adopt LED lighting and leaving the old technology behind for the greater good of the environment, energy savings and go green concept as the energy that we use these days is not unlimited at the end.Terawatt that is based in the Netherlands leveraging blockchain technology to help reduce global lighting electricity consumption 50 percent (roughly 2000 Terawatts) by 2035, while also increasing light output by 50 percent. Terawatt will also create a deflationary currency to compete with FIAT and digital alternatives like Bitcoin. Terawatt aims to tackle other renewable sectors like Solar, Wind, Electric Vehicles after proof of concept is achieved with LED's.Terawatt is a patent-pending, renewable energy blockchain startup, with a strong focus on monetization and driving global LED adoption. Terawatt will create a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), and also a deflationary Ethereum-based, private (zk-SNARKS) currency for global payments. The DAO will be funded and used by Utility Companies, LED. Sellers, Businesses, token holders, and energy customers worldwide. The DAO will act as a decentralized global mutual/insurance fund to ensure Utilities (and businesses) always have access to funding (which constantly runs out) for subsidizing LED. sales to their energy customers (or for businesses upgrading to LED's).This is a major benefit to utility companies as they want 100 percent of their customers to have energy efficient lights due to progressive grid overload, which forces power companies to build (and maintain) expensive (Hundreds of millions of dollars) power plants to meet demand. They are also mandated by government agencies (i.e. US Department of Energy and US Environmental Protection Agency) to increase LED adoption in their respective markets. Businesses want LED's because they reduce electricity bills, increase light output, reduce maintenance costs, and qualify them for tax incentives. The upfront cost was the issue, but Terawatt will help overcome this.The Terawatt Token will also be used as a currency similar to ETH at any business or utility company that will accept it as method of payment. DAO members with businesses will want to accept Terawatt tokens as payment because they will gain increased voting/staking power in the DAO, and because it's much more deflationary than FIAT or other cryptocurrencies due to continual coin burning structure, which equals potentially increased profitability.The DAO is a next-generation organisation that will change the way we create products and share profit. "The DAO is now the biggest crowdfunded project of all time. In less than a month the organisation has a market cap of $140 million. So what is the DAO really? And why should you care? Simply put, the DAO is a self-running company. It has no directors, no managers and no employees - at least not in the conventional sense of the words. DAO stands for 'Decentralised Autonomous Organisation' and it's powered by a cryptocurrency called Ethereum. To better understand how the DAO works requires a quick explanation of Ethereum. This is the future of trust.Money is the second most important thing human beings have invented, after language. More than just a way of buying things, currency is a symbol of trust. Until now, that trust has relied on central authorities, like banks, for verification. We no longer need those monolithic entities thanks to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Ethereum, like Bitcoin, is a cryptocurrency and, like other cryptocurrencies, Ethereum is built on a blockchain.With Ethereum gaining traction, the scene was set for a new kind of organisation. The DAO uses Ethereum smart contracts to power everything from its funding to how it pays people for the work they do. Like a traditional company, the DAO is built for profit. It is seeded via the sale of 'DAO tokens' during the crowdfunding period ending 28 May 2016.All interested businesses and consumers, not just utility providers, can buy LED tokens and participate in the DAO. This will help increase the network effect (Metcalfe's Law) Now we have a growing decentralized fund as more and more token holders join. Terawatt also aim to do this for GAS, and SOLAR, and WIND, Electric Vehicles, Etcetera. LEDs are just the beginning of the titan Terawatt will become. LEDs will be proof of concept and then it will snowball from there into these other sectors. Once utility companies experience the innumerable benefits of joining the DAO, they will happily pay to join, and other companies that don't do this will experience FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).Terawatt first implementation will be on the Ethereum Casper Network using Proof of Stake.Terawatt CBC Casper is a method for "deriving" consensus protocols. Using this method, a family of protocols have been created that enjoy a variety of benefits over traditional consensus protocols. These benefits include:No "in-protocol" finality threshold.The ability to trade off latency to finality with number of validators, rather than just network overhead.Theoretically optimal network overhead in the certain cases.Terawatt use Ethereum based ERC20 token to issue and create tokens mainly because it has the base foundation for the technology that will be implemented. Terawatt will manipulate the blockchain smart contracts. LED token will be a standard ERC20 token with some specific modifications. Terawatt algorithms will verify that the consumer has actually purchased the bulbs from a suitable seller and add the transaction to the blockchain. Smart contracts will execute and manage the entire process.Terawatt enforce the Whitelist and Know Your Customer (KYC) protocol. 1 LED token priced at USD 0.4. Total raised is at USD 400,000. The soft cap is at USD 500,000 while the hard cap is at USD 500,000. Terawatt accepts ETH and BTS as the cryptocurrency for transactions.

LED Lighting Trends in 2020 Indoff's Corporate Blog
The world of lighting seems to change daily. Part of the industry shows no signs of slowing down and with energy consumption being a huge conversational point today we're sure to see changes in LED technology. Additionally, new regulations are being introduced and certifications for your business can be acquired. This is why we've decided to take a look into the LED lighting trends in 2020.Lighting is often forgotten about until it doesn't work when you flip the switch. Unfortunately, the problem is flipping the switch itself if your business hasn't kept pace. Lighting and HVAC makes up over half of the energy bill your business must pay every month. That's an alarming stat that shouldn't be ignored.At Indoff, we strive to stay up to date with information and trends as it becomes available. It's important that our customers receive the best solution to their business needs and we can only achieve that goal if we keep up with the times. 2020 is here and so are our top 5 predictions as to what the near future will bring:Energy efficiency will continue to improveEnergy-efficient lighting is extremely important in today's modern world. Almost all businesses operate at a minimum of 40 hours a week which means so do your light bulbs. Additionally, you have to think about the time spent before and after you close your doors, the exterior lights remain left on overnight, or how the cleaning crew after-hours need to leave the lights on as they operate. It's easy to see why lighting is one of the largest energy expenses for businesses nationwide.The good news is that LED lighting is only getting more efficient as time goes on. Efficiency is measured in Lumens per Watt (lpw), the higher the lpw, the more efficient the bulb. Currently, we stand at 125 lpw and that number only continues to grow year after year. Additionally, compared to their incandescent and fluorescent predecessors, LED light bulbs emit less heat and last as much as 25 times longer.Alexa, dim the lights.It's not an unknown that the world is evolving and doing so at a faster pace than ever before. New technologies arise just as fast as others crumble. We look towards technology to make our lives easier, help us improve our decisions, and increase our safety.One piece of technology that continues to grow and dominate, no matter how controversial it may be, are voice assistants. You may know them by names such as Siri, Alexa, or Google Home. These voice assistants help us tap into the emerging world of the Internet of Things or IoT.IoT devices are considered "smart" as they can be connected to the internet but controlled in the real world with applications, command hubs, or our voices. Smart homes are already beginning to become more prevalent and businesses aren't far behind. In 2020 more businesses will make the switch to Smart LED Bulbs and the trend will continue for years to come.Aside from being more energy-efficient, these smart bulbs can help businesses save money in additional ways. For example, smart bulbs can be controlled remotely so maintenance can turn off lights that may have been left on at the end of the day from their phone at home. The future is bright for this tech and it's only going to become more sophisticated as time marches on.Slimming down for the new yearNot much thought was put into the design of the bulbs of the past. There needed to be enough space for the wires to not touch the glass and allow for enough air to ventilate but the overall design and aesthetic was often forgotten about. As technology has improved we have been able to require less space for our lighting needs.Nowadays we can reduce the space needed for the light itself for an increase in aesthetics and design. Where we previously needed large fixtures to house bulbs, we can now have large fixtures of various geometric shapes to add to the feeling of a room. We now have stronger light bulbs that take up less space and energy. There is less need for confusing wiring and additionally, LEDs make it easier than ever to upgrade a fixture with a retrofit kit.Warming up the color temperatureIt's great to be able to save money for your company while also becoming more environmentally friendly, but what about the look and feel of the office? As hinted about above, we now how more control of our environments due to the advancements of lighting and color is no different.LED bulbs have a spectacular range of strength and color like never before. Due to the advancements of technology we now have a bulb for every emotion you'd like to convey and more. Many IoT applications even allow you to change the color of your bulb straight from your phone to nearly any color you can think of. It's even now possible to change the color of your conference room lighting to match that of your brand's colors during meetings and presentations if you'd like.Many designers are catching on to the fact that certain lights can create cozier, calming, and more relaxing or intimate feelings within the environment. This is great for high-end restaurants, your home, or even break rooms. Long gone are the days of the on or off switch as you now can directly control the exact percentage of how bright you'd prefer your light to be at that moment with a simple voice command.The war on the blue light epidemicOur society is beginning to wake up to the blue light epidemic. Actually, we can't fall asleep due to it. Much of the tech within our homes, businesses, and our pockets emit light in short wavelengths. This is what is known as blue light.The color blue is highly energetic compared to other colors such as the reds and oranges of a relaxing sunset. We are learning that this can have monumental effects on our bodies. We began to lose sleep and also experience digital eye strain due to our screen time.As additional studies are completed we learn more about how to improve our lighting situation within our homes and business. Manufacturers will make big strives in 2020 to reduce the effect of blue light and create new technologies to help combat it. For now, exposure to blue light can be hard to avoid but as we continue into the future it's sure to be a huge focus for manufacturers and consumers alike.Update your lighting with Indoff in 2020It's time to start thinking of the future and making sure that your business isn't falling behind.

[closed]I was just looking to buy a new led light bulb and noticed that one was 800 lumens and the other 1000 lumens and both were rated for 10 watts.What exactly makes one brighter than the other?There are a massive array of factors affecting LED brightness including quality of LED, color, human perception of that color, CRI, drive current and voltage, thermal dissipation and driver efficiency.In addition to these factors that actually affect results, LED lumen measurements differ to some degree between companies, and some will even add up the lumen ratings of the LEDs without measuring, giving higher than actual ratings. Some people really appreciate high CRI LEDs and almost everyone will not like extremely low CRI arrangements. This means if it is high CRI, you might like an 800 lumen bulb better than a low CRI 1000 lumen one, even with the same color temperature and assuming the labelled brightness is accurate.LEDs in general are more energy efficient than CFL and incandescent and in some cases there are factors that can even mitigate incandescent (If a house is entirely electric heated at wintertime, it makes no difference if heat comes from a lightbulb or a radiator. ). Between electrical and thermal design, LED die improvements and advances in switching technology, manufacturers have still left themselves plenty of headroom for improvement even on more expensive bulbs.Where I live there is also no strong correlation between price and quality for many bulb types due to market factors. A19 bulbs can cost anywhere for $1.50 to $5 and the cheap ones can be quite good and the more expensive ones nothing to write home about. The best way to find a good bulb is to either evaluate it(if you are at a hardware store and they have a row of lightbulbs, turn them all on and take a picture.), find out what is in it(A good bulb will have good quality/ high efficiency LEDS, more LEDS running at lower power as opposed to few at higher power, and a better driver in it(more efficient). Or read reviews to get an idea of your best options. I will sometimes buy $2 bulbs on sale just to test them out, but for more expensive socket types where bulbs are still $20 minimum, It could definitely be worth some effort to compare before you get a set of 11 new bulbs for the designer track lighting in your kitchen or something
