Cree Inc.'s XLamp MT-G LEDs are for 35-50W halogen MR16
retrofit bulbs and other accent, track, display and down lighting used in
retail stores, residential settings, museums, art galleries, hospitality and
landscapes and are the first commercial LEDs to deliver sufficient light output
for these applications. The multi-die XLamp MT-G LED features Cree EasyWhite
technology to deliver consistent color in a small package. This LED is designed
for the high-lumen, small-footprint requirements of 35 and 50W halogen retrofit
lamps. The XLamp MT-G LED is tested at 85C which can simplify luminaire design
calculations and speed time-to-market. With a 9 x 9 mm footprint, the MT-G LED
delivers up to 560 lm at 1.1A at 85C or up to 1525 lm at 4A at 85 C in warm
white (3000K). Samples are available immediately and production volumes are
available with standard lead times.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
