LEDs: Solutions For Today & Tomorrow

Slimmest LED Downlight

LED light technology is enabling designers to explore unique interior lighting concepts, given that the lighting controls can be used to control many aspects in an LED strip. The fact that LEDs also offer the most energy-efficient lighting solutions, and that their compact and small size enables their application in almost any inaccessible place, is making them the preferred choice over other lamp types.

Abdullah Lighting Systems: Bringing customized solutions

Altair Round Lights

Delhi-based Abdullah Lighting Systems (ALS) has expanded its range of LEDs as well as its market reach, having tapped newer markets like Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telengana, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Orissa, and Nagaland, in the past one year. Products include LED lamps for gardens, streets, commercial buildings, residential complexes, hotel industry, etc.

Muhammad Rafi
Md. Rafi, CEO, ALS, says, "In garden lights alone we have over 900 variants, and our latest brand, XperiaTM Lights, caters to both outdoor indoor lighting needs. Increasing application of LED-based lighting is driving growth. The solid state lighting technology has opened up numerous opportunities by enabling compact and customized lighting solutions, which were not possible with conventional lamps like the incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Further, government incentives by way of excise benefits to LED light manufacturers and LED-based solar lighting systems for street light applications, are also opening up the market for LED lighting solutions."

The company's assembling unit in IP Industrial Area, Delhi, is equipped with high-tech machines, cutting edge technology, latest design software and equipment. "All our products offer a 3-year warranty. We use LED chips from Osram and Edison Opto, and lenses from LED Link, while PCBs and drivers are sourced from Indian makers," informs Rafi.

Rafi warns against using cheap imports from China that are sold without any guarantee and do not last long, and also sourcing from small manufacturers who do not have a technical understanding of LEDs. "Heat management and use of the right electronics is important for optimum performance of LEDs. A poorly designed LED lighting product can lead to faster overheating, faster lumen depreciation, light discoloration, and a much shorter life of the lamp."

He informs that to its customers and that demand for customization has increased significantly given the flexibility of LEDs. "Until recently, LEDs were limited to single bulb use in applications such as instrument panels, electronics, pen lights, etc, and more recently as strings of indoor and outdoor Christmas lights. Now, manufacturers have expanded their application by using them for general purpose lighting such as downlights and as replacement for CFLs, T5/T8 ceiling lights, etc. LEDs are being encased in diffuser lenses which spread the light in wider beams. We get a lot of enquiries from hotels, residences, etc, for unique LED applications and architects and interior designers are constantly coming up with unusual lighting designs."

Lighting Solutions for Kitchen
With the acute space crunch faced currently, it has become necessary to use some rooms for multiple purposes. For e.g., a study room can double up as a mini theatre or the living room can be used as a lounge during a party celebration. These functions require varying amounts and brightness of lights. Häfele's LED Dimming System compatible with Häfele's Loox 12 V and 24 V drivers is designed for such requirements. Häfele's dimmer consists of four channels and enables the user to adjust the light levels of each channel individually, from nearly dark to fully lit using Häfele's wireless remote controller.

Häfele's new range of sleek ceiling downlights can set the home ambience to user's mood, and are cater to varying output needs from 5 to 30 watts, depending on the type of application and interior space. The downlights come with an in-built dimmable feature and the inherent benefits of LEDs such as durability, energy conservation, and no emissions of harmful UV radiation. The range includes anti-glare downlights, slim focused downlights, downlights with a slim edge for increased light output, light and durable downlights for residential projects, and recessed adjustable focused downlights with tilt able option.

Häfele's range of light fittings also includes an exclusive category of aluminium profiles to mount the LED strip Lights. These aluminium profiles are available in two installation options – recessed (straight and angled) and surface mounted, depending on the type of application (along a piece of furniture or bordering a false ceiling). Available in attractive finishes like milky white or frosted, these profiles are aesthetically pleasing yet functionally beneficial.
