Lighting design firm Nulty has published a series of worksheets that very effectively teach young children about light.

In the South African market, all electronic equipment either manufactured locally or imported from overseas needs to adhere to and comply with certain compulsory regulations set out by the National Regulator of Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) in order for them to be sold in the South African market. These goods go through a series of tests to ensure the safety and energy efficiency of the electrical apparatus which, in turn, protects the health and safety of the consumer. After the inspection has been completed and it is found that the item is deemed safe to use in the South African market, an LOA (Letter of Authority) is issued for the particular item. No electrical goods can be sold legally in South Africa without having a valid LOA in place.

Solid-state lighting (SSL) enabling technology manufacturer Tridonic has announced the new Siderea platform of building-block products that developers can easily use to quickly design smart outdoor lighting products. Moreover, the portfolio includes compatibility with the Paradox Engineering Smart Urban Network platform, so development teams can enable their companies to offer a turnkey smart-city system for installation in small towns with a few luminaires or in large urban areas. The modular approach to outdoor LED-based lighting products is largely standards based and future proof.

The Tampa Bay Sports Authority and upstart Sportsbeams Lighting have partnered to deliver enhanced LED-based lighting of Raymond James Stadium and the playing surface with the installation to be on a global stage Feb. 7 with the playing of Super Bowl LV. The individual Sportsbeams luminaires integrate white LEDs to light the playing surface and RGB+A (red, green, blue + amber) LEDs to deliver dynamic effects. Sportsbeams says that the installation can deliver 2 million colour options.
