"We're in an era where lighting alone is not enough. Lighting should work in tandem with sensors and IoT-connected devices to provide intelligent lighting functions."
ATLANTA, GA, June 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- GRE Alpha recently presented at the 2017 Convergent Future Forum held from June 9 to June 12 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex. A prior exhibitor at the annual Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition event, this year the company was invited to speak about innovations in smart lighting.
GRE Alpha's talk, titled "Importance of Dimming Performance in Smart Lighting," garnered a lot of attention. Mr. Kelvin Kwong, Product Marketing Manager, spoke to a packed room about GRE Alpha's place in the new era of LED lighting: Lighting 3.0. The speech centered around adaptation to essential LED lighting technologies, applications for smart lighting, and conversion to smart LED lighting through GRE Alpha's innovative product lines.
"We're in an era where lighting alone is not enough," said Richard Fong, Executive Director of GRE Alpha. "Lighting should work in tandem with sensors and IoT-connected devices to provide intelligent lighting functions."
Mr. Kwong's lecture introduced several GRE Alpha LED dimming products--including the DALI and DMX dimming modules and XLAV and XLA series of phase dimmable drivers--and explained how those products ease the process of switching to smart lighting. The products provide solutions that work with various smart lighting protocols, offering easier adoption of smart lighting technologies.
"The LED lighting industry has been greatly affected by the IoT movement," said Fong. "We are seeing new applications for LED lighting in many industry verticals from general illumination to industrial lighting, medical applications and horticultural applications. GRE Alpha's host of smart dimming control accessories and LED drivers will allow lighting companies to quickly and easily make this transition."
In addition to presenting and allowing for audience questions, GRE Alpha was proud to support partner company Xicato Inc., a fellow LED components manufacturing firm. Xicato introduced a new range of IoT-connected intelligent LED dimming modules that have high compatibility with GRE Alpha LED drivers.
"It was rewarding to be able to share our products and information with the visitors at the Convergent Future Forum," said Fong. "We're looking forward to what the future holds."
