In this invention a violet, blue, or other wavelength laser diode source based on gallium and nitrogen materials is closely integrated with phosphor materials, such as yellow phosphors, to form a compact, high-brightness, and highly-efficient, white light source.
Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 ESTThe invention relates to a tube (42) for a semiconductor tubular lamp (41), which tube has at least one holding projection for holding at least one printed circuit board (5) on the inside of the tube, wherein the tube (42) is a glass tube, and the at least one holding projection is an inwardly bulging, reshaped burling region (43-46) of the tube (42). A semiconductor tubular lamp (41) has a tube (42) and at least one printed circuit board (5) fitted with a semiconductor light source (6), which is accommodated in the tube (42) and is held transversely to a longitudinal direction (L) of the tube (42) by means of at least one burling region (43-46) in a form-fitted manner. A method serves to produce a tube (42), wherein the tube (42) is provided, locally heated, and pressed inwardly at the at least one locally heated point for generating the at least one burling area (43-46). The invention is in particular applicable to LED retrofit lamps for fluorescent lamps, in particular for replacing conventional tube lamps or flashlights of type T5 or T8.
Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 ESTA heat dissipating and optically efficient LED high bay light bar which may be used as part of a complete retrofit system for a variety of linear fluorescent light fixtures. The LED high bay light bar comprises an elongate channel member which is preferably fabricated from extruded aluminum. In addition to the channel member, the LED high bay light bar comprises a high-efficacy set of LEDs, which are preferably provided in the form of an elongate LED printed circuit board (PCB) or strip mechanically bonded to the channel member. The channel member is outfitted with fins and other surface features uniquely configured to provide superior heat dissipation, thus allowing the channel member to effectively function as a heat sink for the LED strip cooperatively engaged thereto. The channel member is configured to define an air flow cavity under the LED strip as allows for the effective dissipation of heat during operation of the LED light bar. The channel member also includes a parabolic reflector portion which is itself uniquely configured to provide optimal light emission/distribution characteristics.
Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 ESTGenerally disclosed may be an LED lighting module (including but not limited to lamps, light bulbs, or light fixtures) with (i) rapidly replaceable LED light source units, (ii) rapidly replaceable driver circuitry, and (iii) efficient heat transfer. An aspect of the rapid replaceability of the disclosed light source is self-registration of the source's light elements, electronic drive components, and heat sources respectively relative to the optical, power supply components, and heat sink components of a lamp or other lighting device.
Thu, 23 Feb 2017 08:00:00 ESTAn LED filament and an LED light bulb applying the same are disclosed. The LED filament includes LED chips, conductive electrodes disposed corresponding to the LED chips, and a light conversion coating. The LED chips are electrically connected together and the conductive electrodes are electrically connected with the LED chips. The light conversion coating includes an adhesive and a plurality of phosphors. The light conversion coating coats on at least two sides of the LED chips and the conductive electrodes. The light conversion coating exposes a portion of two of the conductive electrodes. Accordingly, the LED filament is capable of emitting light similar to that a point light source does and the LED light bulb may emit omnidirectional light.
