|20110285292||LED-BASED LUMINAIRES FOR LARGE-SCALE ARCHITECTURAL ILLUMINATION - Disclosed herein are exterior architectural fixtures employing LED-based light sources that are capable of projecting light over long distances and providing a wide variety of lighting effects with high lumen output. These lighting fixtures have improved heat dissipation properties and are particularly suitable for large-scale façade washing and for illuminating large architectural structures, such as skyscrapers, casinos, and retail establishments, integrating efficient and compact power supply and control components for driving high-intensity LEDs to achieve a vast variety of lighting effects on a large scale.||11-24-2011|
|20100207534||INTEGRATED LED-BASED LUMINARE FOR GENERAL LIGHTING - Lighting apparatus and methods employing LED light sources are described. The LED light sources are integrated with other components in the form of a luminaire or other general purpose lighting structure. Some of the lighting structures are formed as Parabolic Aluminum Reflector (PAR) luminaires, allowing them to be inserted into conventional sockets. The lighting structures display beneficial operating characteristics, such as efficient operation, high thermal dissipation, high output, and good color mixing.||08-19-2010|
|20090050908||Solid state lighting component - An LED component according to the present invention comprising an array of LED chips mounted on a submount with the LED chips capable of emitting light in response to an electrical signal. The array can comprise LED chips emitting at two colors of light wherein the LED component emits light comprising the combination of the two colors of light. A single lens is included over the array of LED chips. The LED chip array can emit light of greater than 800 lumens with a drive current of less than 150 milli-Amps. The LED chip component can also operate at temperatures less than 3000 degrees K. In one embodiment, the LED array is in a substantially circular pattern on the submount.||02-26-2009|
|20080285271||LED-BASED FIXTURES AND RELATED METHODS FOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT - LED-based lighting fixtures suitable for general illumination in surface-mount or suspended installations, in which heat dissipation properties of the fixtures are significantly improved by decreasing thermal resistance between LED junctions and the ambient air. In various examples, improved heat dissipation is accomplished by increasing a surface area of one or more heat-dissipating elements proximate a trajectory of air flow through the fixture. In one aspect, various structural components of the fixtures are particularly configured to create and maintain a “chimney effect” within the fixture, resulting in a high air-flow rate, natural convection cooling system capable of efficiently dissipating the waste heat from the fixture without active cooling.||11-20-2008|
|20080278941||LED-BASED LIGHTING FIXTURES FOR SURFACE ILLUMINATION WITH IMPROVED HEAT DISSIPATION AND MANUFACTURABILITY - LED-based lighting apparatus and assembly methods in which mechanical and/or thermal coupling between respective components is accomplished via a transfer of force from one component to another. In one example, a multiple-LED assembly is disposed in thermal communication with a heat sink that forms part of a housing. A primary optical element situated within a pressure-transfer member is disposed above and optically aligned with each LED. A shared secondary optical facility forming another part of the housing is disposed above and compressively coupled to the pressure-transfer members. A force exerted by the second optical facility is transferred via the pressure-transfer members so as to press the LED assembly toward the heat sink, thereby facilitating heat transfer. In one aspect, the LED assembly is secured in the housing without the need for adhesives. In another aspect, the secondary optical facility does not directly exert pressure onto any primary optical element, thereby reducing optical misalignment.||11-13-2008|
|20080278092||HIGH POWER FACTOR LED-BASED LIGHTING APPARATUS AND METHODS - Power control methods and apparatus in which a switching power supply provides power factor correction and an output voltage to a load via control of a single switch, without requiring any feedback information associated with the load. The single switch may be controlled without monitoring either the output voltage across the load or a current drawn by the load, and/or without regulating either the output voltage across the load or the current drawn by the load. The RMS value of an A.C. input voltage to the switching power supply may be varied via a conventional A.C. dimmer (e.g., using either a voltage amplitude or duty cycle control technique) to in turn control the output voltage. The switching power supply may comprise a flyback converter configuration, a buck converter configuration, or a boost converter configuration, and the load may comprise an LED-based light source.||11-13-2008|
