WeeTect Anti-Scratch Coating Is Now Available for Intelligent LED Lighting Applications

WeeTect has introduced an anti-scratch coating for intelligent LED lighting applications.

WeeTect has introduced an anti-scratch coating for intelligent LED lighting applications. This was announced by Taylors Lei who emphasized on the need to adopt LED systems as a way to cut energy costs and improve system performance. 

Background information about LED lighting system applications

Since the 2000, a number of electronic equipment manufacturers have integrated LED light system with their smart technology. 

The intelligence LED lighting applications are based on advanced control mechanisms. These systems have a unique architecture that includes three important components:

1. Power conversion; it is from this point that the required voltage is delivered to the LEDs. This could be a robust and complex system. However, the basic structure includes AC rectifier, power factor correction stage and DC stage.

2. LED control; power is fed to the LED thus producing a pre-specified amount of light to control systems. At this point, the intensity of light will determine the performance of systems. This is where anti-fog and anti-scratch coating are commonly used. Scratches and fog may reduce the light intensity. 

3. Communication; this is the ability of LED system to communicate effectively with other systems.

Benefits of anti-scratch coating in intelligence LED application

Polycarbonate material is a perfect choice for LED light applications. However, laboratory tests have proved that polycarbonate is not intrinsically resistant to scratches. This is the main reason why WeeTect has introduced a new anti-scratch coating for this application. 

The quality of LED light play an integral role not only in intelligence systems, but also, in LED entertainment lighting systems. Quality is basically the consistency in intensity and color. Three factors that affect quality of light include:

1. Scratches and fog

2. Temperature

3. Aging.

According to tests conducted by WeeTect, scratches may result in a number of inaccuracies that may include light refraction, deflections and loss of light intensity. This anti-scratch coating ensures that the surface remains clear at all times. 

How LED intelligence systems work

Introducing an anti-scratch coating that is compatible with anti-fog for polycarbonate sheets aims to enhance performance of these products. This is based on 3 crucial elements of an LED intelligence system. These include:

Ambient light sensing; they depend on light generated by the LED to control other operations. For a lighting system, depending on the amount of LED light detected, the light may be turned off or dimmed.

The complexity of any system may depend on a number of factors such as UV blocking, current consumption or wavelength. Again, the most crucial aspect here is to ensure that LED emits a maximum amount of light energy. That is, the surface should remain scratch free depending on the calibration procedures.

For example, a system can be equipped with RGB LEDs that can automatically change the color output.  

Communication; an intelligent LED system can be networked to turn them on, off or dim light. So far, it has been implemented to reduce energy consumption. In some control systems, it can be used to provide quick feedback thus, a system can easily be optimized. A good example is the use of intelligent LED systems in PLCs and in other wireless applications. 

Energy measurement; this is evident in smart meters, electric chargers and voltage controllers. The technology works on the basis that, the LED lights can “count” watts, thus, users are able to get accurate information about power consumption in real time.

LED systems can communicate effectively if they emit sufficient amount of light. This makes it crucial for the surface of the LED systems to remain scratch free no matter the surrounding environment. 

An intelligence LED lighting applications should be accurate and precise. All commands or instructions are based on the intensity of light. This can be affected by the scratches on LED surface.

WeeTect anti-scratch coating, like the anti-fog; all aim to ensure that the surface of polycarbonate LED covers emit sufficient amount of light. This implies that that they enhance performance and accuracy of the intelligence system.
