“LED MAKES THE LIGHT SOURCE BECOME MUCH SMALLER AND MUCH MORE FLEXIBLE” MICHAEL DEHN
ELE Times|December 2019
LED LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY HAS TAKEN A FRONT SEAT OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS. RESEARCH IN TECHNOLOGY HAS ENABLED LEDS TO ACHIEVE THE HIGHEST LIGHTING EFFICACIES. SIMULTANEOUSLY LED LIGHTING COST HAS COME DOWN CONSIDERABLY, RESULTING IN CONVENIENT ADOPTION

Despite this paradigm shift, further improvements are possible and desirable. The technology can further be improved in efficiency, color quality, light distribution, form factor, and building integration. During LED Expo earlier this month ELE Times’ Nikita Sharma caught up with Michael Dehn, General Manager, Sales Marketing, Messe Frankfurt India and explored such current issues and the latest technologies showcased at the 21st edition of LED Expo New Delhi 2019. Excerpts:

ELE Times: The 20th edition of LED Expo 2019 New Delhi showcased a positive shift with many companies focusing on smart and innovative LED technologies. What latest technologies were exhibited in this edition?

Michael Dehn: When you mention smart and connected lighting, of course, that is the umbrella for a lot of different products. It’s a trend that you might just know that light is connected through IoT and there’s a lot of communication that can happen between the light and other home automation products. And the trend is continuing. At Led Expo New Delhi 2019, the 21st edition, we had a future zone where we highlighted some exhibitors that are particularly innovative.

But now what is really the core of the LED products is that, what changed from traditional lighting to LED is, that the LED makes the light source become much smaller and much more flexible. There are so many things that can be done with it. I think many of them have not even been invented yet because the technology is extremely flexible. There are a lot of areas that can be improved through it. There are 389 companies on the show floor. A lot of potential innovations still waiting to happen. Also, LED expo is an exhibition which also showcases the components. The products can be developed using the components which are here on site. We have showcased machinery that shows the production technology and capabilities.
