  9. 9. ACDC Design Approach
  10. 10. ACDC Design Approach <ul><li>LED Selection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many LED Sources available – Performance and quality can vary dramatically </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ACDC only work with most reputable LED manufacturers based within Europe and the USA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ACDC currently work with Cree and Lumileds who are market leaders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All products are researched and tested before they are incorporated into the ACDC product range. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. ACDC Design Approach <ul><li>LED Selection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Colour temperature and Consistency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Traditionally very cold hue and poor CRI </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Today, very warm colours and excellent CRI </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Too often products are released by LED manufacturers before colour consistency performance is acceptable </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Anybody can demonstrate a single LED with outstanding performance – production volumes often don’t offer the same results </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ACDC test larger volumes of LED’s to ensure continuity prior to release </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. ACDC Design Approach <ul><li>LED Selection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Light Output </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Any LED can be specified as 1 watt or 2 watt. This does not define clearly the light output from the fitting itself </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Rebel LED can be bought from Lumileds ranging from 40 lumen parts to 70 lumen parts – All capable of operating up to 2 watts!! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Critical the Lighting Designer specifies output and wattage, or efficacy of the LED so the project design integrity is maintained </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 13. ACDC Design Approach <ul><li>Optical Design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LED’s deliver a wide light distribution and this light needs to be harnessed for the LED to deliver a focused and powerful beam. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ACDC utlilse the most efficient optics delivering around 90% efficiencies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Evolution – No suitable optic off the shelf, therefore ACDC design team developed a specific product solution. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specialist testing, tooling and research required to deliver a completely new optical solution. </li></ul></ul>
