Smart LED lighting systems in various fields - from home to commercial to public applications – are taking off at great speed. The U.S. market researcher IHS projects over 160 Million smart lighting systems to be sold in commercial applications this year, with a CAGR of over 40 percent through 2018. This is due to their inherent advantages, such as low power consumption, dimmability and choice of color, flexibility in size and easiness of combining to form LED strips. These capabilities are key for creating attractive lighting solutions according to the customers' architectural guidelines and preferences. One frequent problem that industrial lighting designers have when they are developing smart LED solutions is not having the necessary power supply expertise, which was not a key competency before LED lighting took off.
