Skin Wellness Center Adds NeoLTS Light Therapy for Younger Looking Skin and Hair
August 29, 2014
Portsmouth, NH, August 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- The Skin Wellness Center at Atlantic Plastic Surgery has recently acquired NeoLTS, the newest and most sophisticated LED light therapy system. NeoLTS is FDA cleared and clinically proven to improve the appearance of skin and hair. NeoLTS is the premier non-invasive treatment for nourishment of the scalp to prevent the continuation of thinning hair, correct acne and rejuvenate aging skin. Normal aging and excess sun exposure cause fine lines, pigmentation or age spots, and wrinkles that accumulate on the face, neck and upper chest. NeoLTS treatments reduce pigmentation, soften fine lines anywhere on the face, stimulate collagen production, and reduce inflammation (redness and swelling). Treatments also helps with any swelling or bruising after dermal injections.

Cree Introduces Industry Breakthrough Replacement for Halogen MR16 Lamps; MR16 Series TrueWhite® LED Lamps Deliver Industry Leading Performance with a Payback in Months;
August 28, 2014
Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the MR16 Series LED lamp with TrueWhite® Technology, that delivers the soft, diffused light of a traditional 50-watt halogen MR16 lamp, and is designed for global compatibility with virtually all existing sockets. With a suggested retail price of USD 25, Cree MR16 TrueWhite LED lamps consume up to 83 percent less energy and are designed to meet ENERGY STAR® qualification to deliver a rapid payback of less than one year.* "The Cree® MR16 TrueWhite® LED lamp is the best 50-watt halogen replacement lamp to combine the energy saving benefits of LED with the light distribution and color quality our clients expect," said Lee Mehler, principal architect and president, LMHT Associates/National Restaurant Designers. "We've been disappointed with other MR16 LED lamps on the market, but after testing the Cree® MR16 Series TrueWhite® LED lamp we are specifying and recommending the use of this product for new and retrofit projects to replace existing halogen MR16 lamps with Cree."

New Vandal Resistant LED Wall Pack Survives Multistory Drop Test
August 28, 2014
Access Fixtures tested the durability of vandal-resistant LED wall packs in their new video, "Will It Light?" In the video, Access Fixtures team members and lighting specialists dropped a vandal-resistant wall pack with LG LED Modules from the roof of a building. As a control, they also dropped an Epson printer. While the printer shattered immediately, the vandal-resistant wall pack only suffered a small crack and still lights. The test demonstrates the durability of the wall pack's aluminum housing. The video can be found on the vandal-resistant LED wall pack page .

Toshiba Debuts Photovoltaic Couplers in Small-Size SO6 Packages; New Applications Addressed with Increased Operating Temperature Ranges and Isolation Voltages
August 28, 2014
 Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc.(TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, today announced the launch of two new photovoltaic couplers housed in small-size SO6 packages: the TLP3905 and TLP3906. The new photocouplers are designed for use in measuring instruments or as MOSFET gate drivers for the replacement of mechanical relays. Photovoltaic couplers can be used to create a MOSFET gate driver without using an external secondary-side power supply. The structure of a photovoltaic coupler is a photorelay without a MOSFET chip. Users can create an isolated relay by combining the photovoltaic coupler with an external MOSFET of their choice. This combination makes it possible to realize larger voltages and currents for solutions that are not covered under the existing photorelay line-up. The new photocouplers consist of an infrared light emitting diode optically coupled to a photodiode array. The photodiodes are connected in series, making the TLP3905 and TLP3906 suitable for MOS gate drive applications.
