Leading Desert Lights - CML Innovative Technologies Rides Away to Saharan Success

May 3, 2006
CML LogoB.JPG

February 2006 - In order to test new LED lighting concepts, CML Innovative Technologies equipped three KTM enduro motorcycles with LED lighting system prototypes for the inaugural “Desert Logic” rally for such motorbikes. Philippe Gosselet from CML-IT in Besançon, France, one of the company’s engineering centres of excellence for light design, kitted out the bikes for the rally. He also formed part of the CML-IT/KTM team riding them to a winning position after seven days and 1000km in the desert of southern Tunisia.

CML Desert Logic2.jpg

All LED lighting systems used on the motorcycles were specifically designed to withstand the difficult environmental conditions in the desert (big temperature changes from very hot at day to very cold at night, high winds containing grains of sand and constant shocks and vibration from riding in sand and over dunes). Due to the low power requirements of the LEDs, the batteries of the bikes experienced only minimum drain from CML-IT’s LED lighting systems.

Each motorcycle featured a high power LED brake light offering increased security in conditions with limited visibility. A LED system illuminating the roadmaps with high brilliance white LEDs ensured roadmaps were readable in all lighting conditions. A rheostat enabled the system to be adaptable to ambient luminosity. A security system consisting of two high power LEDs blinking consistently at the front and back of the bikes allowed the riders to be seen in the pitch black of the desert nights.

Created and organized by Fabio Fasola, Italian specialist of enduro and long-distance motorbike rallies, the first “Desert Logic” enduro motorbike rally took place from December 3 to December 10, 2005 in South Tunisia. The venue for this first event, which totalled 1000km of links and specials tests, was the oasis of Ksar Ghilane.

CML Xenon lamps.jpg

Xenon bulbs offer numerous advantages over traditional Argon, Krypton or Vacuum filled lamps. The new devices offer suppressed tungsten evaporation meaning a cleaner, longer burn with less blackening. A three times longer life and an increased light output by typically 30% more luminous flux are further benefits.

Bulb wall temperature is 30°C lower compared with corresponding Argon filled lamps. This is significant when the devices are in close proximity to surrounding plastic or wood materials, which could be damaged. Furthermore, Xenon lamps also benefit from a whiter light. A higher filament temperature provides excellent contrast ratio and affords attractive sparkling appearance to the eye.

FINDER PIR Movement Detectors for Control of Interior and Exterior Lighting Installations

April 7, 2006

Finder.jpg

The 18 Series of PIR movement detectors from Finder has been extended to include a new model that operates outdoors in addition to the existing indoor model. The units detect body heat to control lighting in a range of applications, including energy saving and security.

The detectors can reduce energy consumption by automatically switching off lighting when it is not required. This addresses the increasing pressure on companies from both governments and environmental groups to reduce energy consumption, which means that areas of unnecessary lighting have come under scrutiny.  In parallel to this, there is a need for improved lighting particularly in exterior areas to deter potential intruders.

Finder’s PIR detectors are targeted at designers, engineers, contractors and installers of lighting control systems in commercial, industrial and domestic premises.  They will be of particular use in areas inside and outside buildings that are not permanently occupied, such as offices, washrooms, corridors, stairwells and stores as well as outside loading bays, access ramps, etc. where constant lighting is not required.

FIN0034_18PIR.jpg

The output contact for both the 18.01 interior model and the 18.11 exterior model is rated at 10A, with a 20A peak current capability, suitable for switching a 230V incandescent or halogen lighting load of up to 1kW or a compensated fluorescent lighting load rated at up to 350W.

The coverage area spans 110° in both the vertical and the horizontal plane, and the sensing range is specified up to 8m. An integral adjustable threshold light sensor ensures that energy is not wasted by preventing the lights from being switched on in conditions of high ambient light.

To avoid accidentally switching off lights when personnel are still in the lighting zone, the Series 18 PIR units feature an extended ‘on time’. This enables the length of time the lights remain on after movement detection ceases to be extended by a preset delay time, which can be adjusted to between 10 and 180 seconds.

The versatile design of both Series 18 PIR models features a ball joint construction that enables simple, trouble free mounting on a flat vertical or horizontal surface, with the ability to angle the detection head to adjust the required detection area by up to 180° in the horizontal plane, and 27° in the vertical plane.

The 18.01 model allows concealed cable entry via the mounting bracket, while the IP54 protected 18.11 exterior model features a PG9 cable gland entry in the base. The electrical contacts are lead-free AgSnO2.

The Series 18 PIR range is entirely designed and manufactured in-house at Finder’s European facility near Turin in Italy. The design includes custom embedded system programming, CAD evolved optics, custom designed electronics, tooling and test equipment.  The units are competitively priced and offer specifiers and end users a European designed and built PIR with unparalleled flexibility, in a neat and compact housing.

ARCOLECTRIC Smart Indicator Series

March 23, 2006

 ARCOLOGO-2004_140px1.gif
New from Arcolectric is a range of smart indicators - intelligent devices that operate like standard neon indicators, but with added functionality. The intelligent embedded microcontroller can be programmed for multiple applications, and the first three offerings from this family are a Single phase supply checker, a Maintenance indicator and a Temperature monitor.

Smart Ind.jpg

The indicators have the familiar and convenient snap-in profile and feature fast-on terminals, so are drop-in replacements for Neon lamps, making it simple and fast to upgrade an existing product design with new functionality. The smart indicators feature dual LED illumination, so there is a wide choice of illumination colours and colour combinations.

Single phase supply checker (C1431AL)
The supply checker can be fitted as a direct replacement for a Neon indicator, giving clear visual equipment safety indication. The device connects to Live, Neutral and Earth terminals, and monitors the appliance and incoming mains supply for swapped or missing electrical connections. Blue LED illumination indicates correct connections, while Red LED illumination indicates a swapped connection fault. A flashing Red LED indicates a missing connection, such as detached neutral or earth.

Intended for use on appliances or equipment where cable damage is a possibility, such as: portable appliances, site equipment, power tools, garden equipment, extension cable reels, audio equipment, commercial kitchens and stainless steel appliances.

Maintenance indicator (C1432AL)
The indicator monitors appliance usage, and operates as a preventative maintenance or regular inspection reminder for the equipment user. A direct replacement for a neon indicator, the unit counts time that mains power is applied, and remembers the accumulated time even if power is switched off. Blue LED illumination indicates normal operation, but when the factory set operating time is exceeded the illumination changes to flashing Red, indicating that service or maintenance action is required. Connecting the ‘reset’ terminal to neutral resets the timer to zero, and timing starts again.

Typical domestic applications are reminding coffee machine users to decalcify their machines, change deep fat fryer oil, and change or clean cooker hood filters. For service interval indication, the unit could be fitted into gas appliances to indicate when servicing or inspection is overdue. Additionally, users could be given an indication when their appliance warranty period is about to expire.

Temperature monitor (C1433AL)
The temperature monitor is a snap-in device to clearly indicate that refrigeration temperatures are within safe limits. Upper and lower temperature limits can be factory programmed to suit the application. The monitor operates like a standard neon indicator, giving visible on/off status indication for the appliance. Normal operation shows continuous blue LED illumination while the monitored temperature is within the ‘safe’ range between lower and upper limits. Should the measured temperature fall outside of the ‘safe’ range, the LED illumination changes colour to Red. The unit has a pre-connected temperature sensor on a flying lead, ready for quick installation.

Intended for convenient monitoring of deep freeze, refrigeration, cold storage, chiller or air conditioning operation, giving a visual check of the correct temperature without having to know the exact temperature or the limits.
