Fulham To Show New DirectAC LED Engines at Strategies in Light

New DirectAC Designed with Integrated Circuitry to Create a Low-Flicker, Low-Profile Lighting Component for Surface Mounted Luminaires.

Anaheim, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, will be demonstrating its new DirectAC LED Engines at the Strategies in Light conference being held here this week. The new AC direct drive unit removes the need for a driver, resulting in a cost-efficient, reliable lighting solution that is ideal for wall sconces and ceiling luminaires.

Eliminating the need for a separate LED driver gives the DirectAC LED Engines an extremely low profile that simplifies installation. The units come in a full range of wattages, from 10W to 34W, making them ideal substitutes for fluorescent luminaires. They also feature extremely low flicker to achieve CEC Title 24 requirements, and offer smooth TRIAC/ELV dimming down to 10 percent.

“We are seeing increasing demand for versatile LED luminaires that can serve as fluorescent alternatives and retrofits,” said Edwin Reyes, Product Director, LED Light Sources at Fulham. “Our new DirectAC LED Engines are designed as high-performance, low-energy units that are easy to install and offer a longer lifespan than fluorescents with a fraction of the power consumption. They are an ideal solid-state lighting alternative to fluorescent lighting.”

In addition, the DirectAC LED Engines are available in a variety of color temperatures with a CRI up to 90. The units feature a high voltage barrier lens that meets the UL 5VA flame-rating, which allow them to be used with plastic diffusers in open or fully enclosed luminaires. In addition, they can be installed in both dry and damp locations.

The DirectAC units are available in three configurations: the engine only, the engine with lens, and the engine with lens and mounting plate. All units are UL and select models are ENERGY STAR® Luminaire 2.0 listed so they qualify for most rebate programs.

The DirectAC LED Engines are available from Fulham locations worldwide. For more information, visit

A timepiece that’s both precise and accurate to extreme degrees, the Longines Conquest Automatic Chronograph Tachymeter Scale L2.743.4.56.6 Mens Watch shall appeal as much to the lovers of classical lines as to the resolutely modern.

The Longines Elegant Automatic Chronograph Tachymeter Scale L2.743.4.56.6 Mens Watch comes at an absolutely fair price with its vintage-sports design that toes the line between being playful and dressy, in almost every aspect of it.

It makes a welcome addition to the brand’s Conquest line-up with its 1960s look and feel, but more than that, it incorporates an exclusive movement inside that showcases the technology Longines invented many moons ago.

The Longines HydroConquest Automatic Chronograph Tachymeter Scale L2.743.4.56.6 Mens Watch can undoubtedly be called a quintessential expression of sporty elegance.

The self-winding, mechanical column wheel movement (calibre L688) is a technical modification of the Valjoux7753 and the focal point of the top Longines models.

Unlike earlier chronograph movements, the L688 calibre of the Longines Conquest Automatic Chronograph Tachymeter Scale L2.743.4.56.6 Mens Watch doesn’t run the risk of the reset lever being engaged at the wrong time and thus jamming and damaging the gear train; the column-wheel actuator properly synchronizes the various levers. It makes the chronograph operations both feel and sound great!

The pusher produces a very satisfying and audible click (due to the column wheel rotating and setting the counters in motion) with a signature resistance that’s far from the usual clunky feel. The perlaged plating and a striped and signed rotor adds to the overall elegance of the Longines Conquest Automatic Chronograph Tachymeter Scale L2.743.4.56.6 Mens Watch and enhances its fundamental value. Its technical and aesthetic innovation achieves excellence with restraint, helping you to choose an over the top look and performance without you needing to break your bank.

Ready Steady Light to showcase excellence in lighting design

Dubai, UAE: Britain’s popular lighting design competition, Ready Steady Light will turn on for the first time in the Middle East, offering regional lighting design professionals, students, and manufacturers a platform to showcase their creative talents and network among industry peers.

Ready Steady Light, jointly organised by the Society for Light and Lighting (SLL) and the Light Middle East 2016 exhibition, will host up to seven teams who will compete against each other as they overcome challenges without a budget and within a chosen time-frame.

Every team, limited to five members each, will be allocated a site, and returning to basic engineering and design, will be given 90 minutes to design and install a lighting scheme with a range of provided equipment.

Held annually in the UK for the last 14 years, Ready Steady Light’s Middle East version has already attracted five teams from the UAE, with the competition taking place on the 2nd day of Light Middle East 2016, which runs from 31 October – 2 November at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

“Ready Steady Light is a unique opportunity for the Middle East lighting community to take part in a fun and educational event,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Light Middle East, the region’s dedicated trade show for lighting design and technology.

“The competition is open to lighting designers, manufacturers, and students from throughout the region, and we’re sure everyone involved will enjoy the competitive aspect and camaraderie.”
“As Light Middle East continues to grow in both size and scope, interactive and talent-promoting events such as Ready Steady Light have an important role to play in the regional lighting design industry’s continued development,” added Pauwels.

Ready Steady Light will be contested among three categories, two of which will be judged by an expert panel; the Most Creative Effect, based on natural features of the site and theme; and the Best Technical Solution, taking into account energy use, light pollution and health & safety.

The final category, the Peer Prize, will be judged by other contestants, with all winners to be announced and celebrated at the 4th annual Light Middle East Awards, which takes place on the last day of Light Middle East 2016. The winners will also be mentioned on the SLL and Light Middle East website.

“Anyone with an interest in light and lighting should take part in Ready Steady Light,” said Brendan Keely, the SLL’s Secretary. “It’s an opportunity to get hands on experience of lighting the night time environment, to handle luminaires and see the distribution and effect that they will create.

“There’s also the competitive aspect of the event and each team will be vying to be crowned winners, while they’ll also have the opportunity to network with their peers.

“The SLL is very excited about delivering Ready Steady Light with Light Middle East 2016,” added Keely. “It’s one of our most enjoyable annual events in the UK and to take this to the region and have a whole new set of teams and challenges is very exciting. We’re very much looking forward to reaching out to the lighting community in the Middle East.”

The SLL created Ready Steady Light in 2001 as a celebration of the basics of lighting as an art and science, and have run the competition annually ever since. Returning to basic engineering and design, teams are tasked with lighting their site in its natural state with the equipment provided. They each have to overcome challenges without a budget and within the time constraints.

Now in its 11th edition, Light Middle East 2016 will feature more than 400 exhibitors from 30 countries, and returns with regular headline features including the Light Middle East Conference, bringing together key leaders to analyse innovative technologies, changing global trends and evolving regulations impacting the lighting industry.

The prestigious Light Middle East Awards on 2nd November will also celebrate the most outstanding lighting projects and designers from throughout the region. More information is available at:
