Ledvance has updated its new second generation of Damp Proof Special luminaires to be suitable for even more demanding tasks in industry and agricultural applications. Their fully sealed housing is made of highly resistant PMMA making it impervious to chemical detergents, cleaning liquids and oil. The Damp Proof Special models offer IP67 and IP69K protection and come with a through-wiring cable already installed in the luminaire. The Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG) certified the luminaires’ ammonia resistance confirming that the sealed housing and proper material choice allow usage in farming applications. The Damp Proof Special luminaires come with a five-year warranty and are now available for installers.

A study undertaken by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) researchers surveyed 138 representatives of medical-surgical nursing staff as to environmental lighting factors and needs in med-surg patient rooms. Four hospital sites were compared, with various combinations of lighting equipment, controls, and number/form factor of fixtures.

Sales of UV-C lamps to OEM vendors and of high-pressure sodium (HPS) grow lights slowed the long running pace of decline in the “conventional” product sector in the third quarter at Signify, which today also revealed that it has begun selling a glass mercury-vapor UV-C residential tabletop lamp under its own label in Asia and the Middle East to help combat the novel coronavirus.

The world is changing at a rapid rate and along with it the way people are going about their daily lives. By implementing new technologies, people are finding new and innovative ways of simplifying their lives. The Internet of Things (IoT) is forming a big part of this new revolution, be it in the form of smart phones, smart watches, smart TV’s, or smart connectivity in cars.
