Clever Innovation that Solves Real Problems and Reduces Costs for LED Emergency

The presentation will be on how Fulham decided to integrate an LED Driver and an Emergency LED Driver and Battery into a single unit in a technically challenging and innovative way that both reduces the cost for luminaire manufacturers and solves real problems they have in adding emergency to LED luminaires. For example, a first time implementation of a power platform where a single power stage could power LED modules as well as charge the batteries, and how advanced diagnostics enhances the reliability of the emergency operation, potentially saving lives.  The talk will balance a technical deep dive with a business approach to value-adding innovation. The talk will challenge the audience to think about LED technology beyond just energy efficiency and lower product costs to think about how we can grow the industry with better solutions.
