Cyberlux Awarded U.S. Patent for Emergency LED Lighting Technology

via PRNewswire

In a similar pilot project, Cyberlux installed a solid-state semiconductor lighting system in the emergency management "war room" for the City of Cleveland . The project was in response to the widespread power blackouts in 2003.

LEDs are durable, energy efficient, cool to the touch and last more than 100 times longer than conventional incandescent lights. The solid-statesemiconductors are typically used in automobile dashboards and electronicdevices, such as mobile phones. Cyberlux has developed a range of LED lighting products for residential, commercial, military and homeland security markets, including kitchen and closet task lighting and handheld emergency lighting products.

The claims awarded by the U.S. Patent Office address a lighting system capable of providing long-term solutions for emergency and interim lighting. Specifically, these claims address the solid-state lighting elements and associated devices for providing emergency or temporal lighting mounted adjacent to the existing lighting system; the control circuit in electronic communication with solid-state lighting system including wireless communication; the power sensing technology for sensing power disruption in a main power supply which illuminates the lighting elements upon sensing power disruption to determining the electrical power state of an environment. Specifically, the patent addresses an electrochemical lighting system capableof providing prolonged illumination with the use of light emitting diodes(LEDs) as the illumination source. The patent embodies lighting devicescapable of providing long-term solutions for interim and emergency lighting via an array of LEDs, the means for providing electrical energy to the LED array, the capability of multi-level light intensity consistent with light longevity and power source relationships including conventional A/C, solar,various electrochemical assemblies or all other means of electrical energy support.

The development of the ReliaBright Emergency Lighting System (ELS) led to the patent filing. The ReliaBright ELS is designed to retrofit as an augmentation to existing lighting systems in commercial buildings, and it canbe adapted for a variety of applications and uses. These claims lead to new opportunities for the ReliaBright ELS technology in the commercial, militaryand homeland security markets. The product includes a control module powered by a constant charge battery and monitored by a sensor. The sensor differentiates between "power-off at the wall switch" and "power-out in the building's electrical service." The system's light intensity is determined by the number of solid-state lighting elements that are connected in series. Light levels range from "moonlight" to "daylight" consistent with the needs of the space in which the ReliaBright ELS is installed.
