HELLA Develops Unique Matrix LED Headlamp System With Audi
April 15, 2014
HELLA, a leading global supplier of automotive lighting and electronics, has developed an industry-first headlamp system that automatically adjusts high-beam light patterns for other traffic and pedestrians. Recently introduced on the Audi A8 in Europe, HELLA's Matrix LED headlamp system uses camera-based technology to create glare-fee "tunnels" in front of a vehicle. The system allows car owners to continually use their high beams without fear of blinding other drivers. Each headlamp contains 25 electronically controlled LEDs that provide an almost infinite variety of light patterns while eliminating the need for mechanical parts to pivot the lamp. The headlamp can be operated at full power or its intensity lowered as required.

New Surge Protection Modules from Littelfuse Include World's First Series-Connected, 20kA-Capable Indicating Surge Arrestor for LED Lighting Applications; Robust surge current handling for outdoor and commercial LED lighting fixtures
April 15, 2014
Littelfuse, Inc. , the global leader in circuit protection, has introduced two product lines designed specifically to provide transient overvoltage protection for outdoor and commercial LED lighting fixtures. Constructed with Littelfuse thermally protected Varistors, the LSP05 and LSP10 Surge Protection Device (SPD) Modules provide robust surge current handling capability. A built-in thermal disconnect function provides additional protection from catastrophic failures and fire hazards, even under the extreme circumstances of Varistor end of life or sustained overvoltage conditions. Applications include outdoor and commercial LED lighting, including roadway lighting, traffic lighting, digital signage, service entrance lighting, parking garage/lot lighting, flood lighting, tunnel lighting, and street lighting. The LSP05 Module is configured with parallel connections. The LSP10 Module is available with either parallel or series connections; the series-connected version of the LSP10 is the world's first indicating surge arrestor capable of handling surges of up to 20,000 amps used for outdoor LED applications. With the parallel-connected versions, an indicator wire can activate an LED to tell maintenance personnel when to replace the SPD in order to ensure the luminaire remains protected. The LSP10 series-connected version cuts luminaire power off to provide a clearly visible indication the SPD should be replaced.
