NEW PRODUCT RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Attention to detail. In every step of the design and production process of the LED lighting systems, Sirecled studies thoroughly every single parameter and makes its decisions with the sole criterion being absolute quality.

Specialization

The know-how of Sirecled derives from extensive research and development of new products in several technological, scientific and industrial sectors. The experience of the research team in heat dissipation as well as in the design and manufacturing of electronic controllers of electric power was transferred to engineering design, aiming at the creation of high-quality reliable LED technology luminaires.

Heat Dissipation & Design

At Sirecled, of utmost importance is the study and design of heat dissipation systems (aluminum heat sinks). Upon designing new products, we apply 3D modeling techniques and advanced simulation software. At the same time, with the help of testing devices, such as an infrared sensitive camera, we can test and safeguard the high thermal efficiency of LED extending this way the product’s lifecycle.

Maximum Efficiency due to Ergonomic Design

The basic principle that governs our product design is the analytical approach and methodology of the design process. By employing 3D printers, we can control the external form of each product not only in respect to its aesthetics but also to its functionality and total quality. Lighting efficiency is guaranteed through the use of different types of lenses which are manufactured from distinct materials and and in various geometrical arrangements according to the requirements of each application. The end result involves the achievement of maximum luminosity and efficiency for each LED, minimizing losses caused by the phenomenon of diffraction even in particularly heavy atmospheric pollution.

Electronic Features

The power supplies used in our products are designed by the research team of our company and are checked initially at our research laboratory and following at accredited international laboratories. The safety of the electric systems, the electromagnetic compatibility and the final performance are all tested and controlled not only under normal conditions, but also in highly adverse ones. In its research laboratory, the company has a specialty climatic chamber where testing takes place in order to safeguard the sound operation and reliability of all the parts making up the end product.

Optics

The lighting result depends on the use of different types of lenses, made of different materials and various geometries, in accordance with the requirements of each application, in order to achieve the maximum efficacy of each LED, minimizing the losses caused by the phenomenon of refraction even in highly polluting atmospheric conditions.

Smart LEDNet

Sirecled has developed Smart LEDNet, a new “smart lighting” system which transforms a regular luminaire to a smart lighting system. Smart LEDNet can provide control and recording services of the luminaires on their respective location, while it can achieve – through radio wave technology – their optimum performance and the effective handling of the energy consumed, contributing this way to the decrease of operational costs.

 

THE LAB

PHOTOMETRIC MAPPING

Analysis of luminous efficacy

ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY

Electromagnetic compatibility tests aiming at the elimination or decrease to an acceptable level of possible malfunctions, ensuring through the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing – by now obligatory – the proper operation of the luminaires.

MECHANICAL RESISTANCE & ERGONOMICS TESTING

Resistance tests and the several treatments on the layers of each luminaire comply with the rules of ergonomics, in order to achieve the optimum performance and aesthetics of the end product.
