Adaptive AC-Direct Lighting
About the Presentation
LiteSheet is a local Virginia company that pioneered Adaptive AC Direct Technology for LED lighting applications and holds a number of key patents in that arena. Litesheet designs and manufactures Adaptive AC Direct light engines and fixtures for both new and retrofit applications. The LED lighting market is predominantly DC powered, thereby requiring the use of AC-DC converter power supplies, whose failure rate is much higher than the LEDs themselves. As a result, the reliability performance promised by many in the LED lighting industry is not being achieved. Adaptive AC direct technology, which requires no power supply, offers unique advantages over traditional DC LED technology. Come and learn about the advantages, disadvantages, and differences between these technologies and why these differences are significant in the areas of size, weight, performance, adaptability, scale-ability, and reliability. The discussion will include the uniqueness of the Adaptive AC direct IP as it relates to new products and retrofits. There will be sample fixtures on hand to demonstrate the simplicity and advantages of the technology. There will also be slides showing some large Adaptive AC Direct installations that would have been difficult to accomplish using DC LED Technology.
This presentation will be the first part of a two part series on LiteSheet and their patented Adaptive AC-Direct Lighting system for LED lighting. Next month we will tour the LiteSheet manufacturing facility in Bedford. Please plan on attending both of these meeting as we expand what we know (or thought we knew) about LED lighting.
