Simi company creates bright spots in the night
October 19, 2014
The big selling point for LED lighting, and for a Simi Valley company that manufactures and sells LED lights, is energy savings. At the Moorpark Unified School District, discussions about reducing energy costs led the district’s maintenance director, Gary Ventsam, to look into LED lighting as part of the district’s energy-saving efforts. LED stands for “light-emitting diode,” and lights powered with these semiconductors don’t have the heat loss that incandescent bulbs do, making them more efficient. They also last for a long time, which means their light doesn’t degrade over time the way fluorescent bulbs do, and burned-out bulbs don’t constantly need to be changed.

Virtual Patients Come Alive in New Simulation Lab at UH
October 17, 2014
The University of Houston issued the following news release: This fall, University of Houston (UH) optometry students began hands-on training in a first-of-its-kind simulation lab that offers them 24/7 access to virtual patients. The Optometric Clinical Skills Simulation Lab, which will better prepare students to administer patient care when they start clinical rotations, is the only one at an optometric program in the country and the largest in the world. "When students come in this room and see the technology they're blown away," said assistant professor Heather Anderson, who led the initiative to bring the simulation lab to the UH College of Optometry. "The simulators have two components. The patient interface is a smooth black sheet of plastic with a 3-D face, and that face turns into the patient you're examining. The simulators take on the demographics of whatever cases are programmed into the computer, so now we can have the students examine elderly eyes, diseased eyes and eyes from all different ethnicities."

LED Lighting Inc. Announces New High Performance 24-Volt Tape Light & Versa Bar XLR.
October 16, 2014
  Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 16, 2014         LED Lighting Inc. (http://www.ledlightinginc.com), a primary resource for custom illumination solutions, has added 24-volt tape light and expanded their Versa Bar product line to include "XLR" (extra long run). The Versa Bar XLR is offered in warm white (3000K), neutral white (4300K) and cool white (6250K).             "We are committed to ensuring that our customers have the best products for their applications, which drives us to constant and never ending improvement of our products and services," says LED Lighting Inc.'s CEO, William (Bill) Hood.       Customers will experience numerous benefits including: half the current usage, cooler operating temperatures and the ability to specify longer runs per driver; the Versa Bar XLR has a maximum run of 32 feet per driver.           Most significantly, customers will experience minimal voltage drop, which ensures a more consistent light output from beginning to end. The importance of voltage drop for LED lighting is that an LED requires a minimum amount of current to accurately light. Less than the minimum current can cause an LED to flicker, or change the color and luminosity. This is more prominent in longer runs of LED tape light or Versa Bars.
