The Queen is Offered a Helping Hand by WILA


Megaman Shine the Light at Cardiff Castle


Megaman has supplied a variety of its energy efficient lamps for the refurbishment of the lighting at Cardiff Castle. Megaman was chosen by Cardiff Council after assuring that the lighting would maintain the brightness required within the Castle interiors, and still retain the aesthetic charm of the building and provide massive energy savings.


Picking up the gauntlet to be more energy efficient and sustainable, Castle staff, together with the Council’s energy management team, came up with a plan to replace all the light bulbs with energy saving compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and LEDs. Unlike previous energy saving lamps, the new solutions have been specifically designed to fit in with the wonderful historic interior and show its architectural features and artworks in the best possible light. Megaman supplied a combination of 5W LED Clear Candle lamps, 8W GU10 LEDs, 15W AR111 LED’s, GU10s and 18W CFL GLS lamps for use throughout the project.


As the queen inspected the newly refurbished Cutty Sark on the 25th April she was offered a steady hand by WILA’s flexible LED handrail solution. WILA’s Mini LED lighting system was specially developed for integration into the profile


bottom of handrails. Thanks to the individual LED units, the system can be used both with straight lines and all radii. Later installation is also possible. The light intensity on the floor can be varied depending upon the distance between the LED pucks. The world famous Cutty Sark was re-opened by The Queen and Prince Philip. The 143-year-old cargo ship was almost destroyed in a huge fire five years ago in Greenwich, But after £50 million was spent on restoring and repairing the Cutty Sark, she opened to the public once more. Cutty Sark was the fastest ship of her time, transporting cargo all over the world. She carried everything from fine teas to gunpowder, whisky and even buffalo horns.

Ex-Or, part of Honeywell, reports sales far in excess of expectations both in the UK and overseas. "We are delighted to have won this important accolade at the Lighting Design Awards," said Catherine Connolly, Honeywell ED&S business director UK and Ireland. "These awards are internationally recognised, and the market understands that only products that have demonstrated technical and operational excellence stand a chance of winning.”


Cree Technology Center Achieves NVLAP Accreditation


LED lighting leader Cree, Inc. has announced the addition of TEMPO 24 to its comprehensive suite of Cree Services for LED luminaires. The new TEMPO (Thermal Electrical Mechanical Photometric Optical) 24 service combines IES LM-79-08 photometric testing with an extensive set of LED performance tests that surpasses all industry testing parameters and can help ensure total system design and quality. The Cree Durham Technology Center has been accredited by The National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) and furthers Cree’s commitment to helping LED manufacturers overcome design challenges and bring quality products to market faster.


“LM-79 is a necessary test and has become a requirement for doing business in the Solid State Lighting market,” said Mark McClear, director of global applications engineering, Cree. “TEMPO 24 includes a fully accredited LM-79 test, but goes well beyond this or any currently existing standards.”
