LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.
Spot the difference
- Standardisation a way forward for LED devices.
A key concern amongst many Lighting manufacturers is the lack of standards in LED lighting technology. This starts at device level, when if you pick a particular LED device and design the associated hardware – PCB’s, optics, drivers – it becomes an expensive exercise to then swap to an alternative LED – which may offer an improved performance, and reduced costs.
Those cheeky chinese manufacturers Edison Opto have answered those concerns and launched the Edixeon – FEDRAL which to my eyes looks very similar to the Luxeon – REBEL.
The marketing team has even followed a similar theme in the product naming
Some say that the price of the Fedral may be significantly less than the Rebel, and that it’s now widely available – well that’s one difference at least !
Now who’s the real rebel in all this..
