LEDMOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES was born within the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC) and founded as a Spin-off Company in December 2012. It´s a high-tech company with international projection in the growing market of intelligent LED lighting.
LEDMOTIVE has invested a lot of resources over the last years working on a solution that meets the lighting needs of human beings while at the same time maintaining high energy-efficiency standards. The core of technology is based on a family of products that include: an LED Module and a system able to record, process and playback any light spectral fingerprint in real-time, regardless of whether it is natural (i.e. sunlight), artificial (i.e. an incandescent light bulb), or custom made for special applications.
LEDMOTIVE patented technology is able to create, record, process, playback and share any light without boundaries. We commercialize an unprecedented technology allowing the user to take full spectral control of light. Our solution integrates a micro-spectrometer to monitor the output spectrum and correct it in real time. The more channels are used in a solution, the higher the likelihood that spectral shifts will occur, so it is critical for LEDMOTIVE’s products to have a spectral control and corrective feedback.
Our LED Modules (with all the intelligence and spectral control) are connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) and can perfectly reproduce the physical properties of visible light, in a similar way an MP3 player can reproduce very accurately the properties of sound. Along with the LED modules, we also manufacture specific light accessories and we provide with the easy-to-use software capable to control the lights.

The LOT-QuantumDesign group is a leading European distributor of high-quality scientific instruments and components supplying to academic and industrial scientific research customers. The group offers components and systems used in materials science, imaging, spectroscopy, photonics, nanotechnology and life science research. Part of our components are light measurement systems from International Light Technologies Inc. (ILT). ILT offer a variety of modular light meters and have been the most respected name in research-oriented light measurement for 40 years. Optical radiation is perhaps the most difficult form of energy to measure accurately. Light energy is distributed over wavelength, position, direction, time and polarization. Optical radiometry is the science of light measurement, spanning across the UV, VIS and IR regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Photometry is the subset of radiometry dedicated to the measurement of visible light as it is perceived by the average human eye. A light meter or radiometric light measurement system must be designed to measure the distribution of energy over one parameter while holding all others constant. In addition to high levels of measurement uncertainty, the field of radiometry and photometry has been characterized by confusion of terminology, symbols, definitions and units. ILT´s goal is to provide customers with light measurement solutions to these problems by offering a comprehensive line of accurate modular light meters like radiometers and photometers. There are other low-cost instruments called radiometers on the market. These were designed to measure power from a light source with a constant and known spectrum. However, these instruments give erroneous results when measuring any other radiation. The extremely flexible light measuring system concept of ILT is based on a choice of suitable radiometer display devices and a wide range of different detectors. With specially matched filters and input optics, the detector head allows for custom-designed modular configuration.
All components are calibrated in ILT’s own ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration laboratory.

OPTIS makes it possible to simulate the spectral radiation of the source which will illuminate the colored object. Depending on its color, the object will return only part of the light and it's this light/object combination that results in the final color of the product. It's precisely this phenomenon that we reproduce in our solutions, and the reason why we can say that the results you get with our software are "physically correct". OPTIS software is the only approach to date that guarantee the ultra-realistic color of an object.
The main function of Photonics Austria is to develop research strategies on an national and also international basis to support the exchange between the Economy, the Research and the Teaching.

Zhaga is a global lighting-industry consortium that aims to standardize LED light engines and associated components, and to simplify LED luminaire design and manufacturing. Use of Zhaga specifications can provide benefits such as the ability to keep pace with rapid LED technology evolution, flexibility to respond to customer/market requirements, and improved supply-chain management. Zhaga is creating a set of Interface Specifications, known as Books, which define the conditions necessary for interchangeability. Each Book defines an LED light engine and/or associated components by means of the mechanical, photometric, electrical, thermal, and control interfaces between the product and its environment. Products based on several of the Zhaga Books are already in common use in the global lighting market. Zhaga continues to develop new specifications that reflect the needs of luminaire makers and other stakeholders. Zhaga members share their technical expertise in an open, cooperative manner. The consortium is market-oriented and works in the best interests of lighting-industry stakeholders.
