Digital induction lighting development challenges LED solutions

June 27, 2014 // By Paul Buckley
A digital induction system that was collaboratively developed with Robert Bosch, LLC has been launched by EverLast Lighting, Inc., a manufacturer of energy-efficient lighting solutions.

Combining intelligent power management, innovative lamp manufacturing processes and proprietary phosphor blends, the Tesleon System claims a lumen maintenance curve of LM-85 at 100,000 hours and will give reluctant consumers an alternative to LED product options.

"Through state of the art lamp manufacturing processes and digital electronic innovations designed by EverLast and Bosch; Tesleon is now the market leader boasting 110 lumens per watt. Bolt on modular control hardware, and overdesigning a lighting solution to compensate for source degradation is a thing of the past," commented Alex Orr, Vice President of Sales at EverLast Lighting, Inc. "Through this partnership we have created a new genre in the industry, with an onboard CPU and additional wireless control features."

With automotive grade component life cycle testing and domestic manufacturing standards, the Tesleon system claims to operate with a failure rate of under 10 parts per million; backed by a 10 year guarantee.

"Controlling the upstream supply chain doesn't only mean controlling processes, it also ensures using only the highest quality raw materials. With Tesleon digital induction systems powered by Bosch, our engineers have specified and utilized only the highest grade glass, phosphors, processors and electronics components," explained Paul Wickett, Vice President of Engineering, at Tesleon. "Tesleon Digital Induction drivers are truly the first ballast with an aggressive, active power quality management system specifically designed to take on the challenges of today's grid problems."

EverLast digital induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than high pressure sodium and metal halides and are rated up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. In addition to providing a more natural and high color rendition light quality the EverLast induction lighting fixtures are also available with an onboard wired and wireless dimming options, providing even more material cost and energy savings. "We couldn't be more enthused about our EverLast lines paired with the Tesleon system," explained Orr. "Bosch has
