  • Eco Dim Spiral CCFL Saves 80% Energy
Oct 2009
Oct. 21, 2009 — One of the organizers of the electronics show going on in Asia recently sent me the details of this particular product, and I wondered why it had done so! Surely, there's got to be something worth in this product, that one can write about! And sure enough, there certainly is!

Taiwan-based Aussmak Optoelectronics Corp. is offering the eco dim spiral CCFL – model ELS-D0113/ELS-D0118/ELS-D0121. This product boasts a vey long lifespan of 30,000 hours and provides 80 percent energy-saving capability.

The product's holder is made of PBT and glass fiber, and the tube's of CCFL. The dimmable bulb can be used for any switcher. Switch off and switch on again within 2 seconds, brightness dim and power consumption decrease. There is really no need to install any complicated and expensive dimmer system. The lifespan – of over 30,000 hours – has to be unique. Since, I've really no chance of testing this out – I don't know for sure whether it would last that long! Hope these do!

The product boasts of a green, healthy illumination: minimal mercury content and UV radiation, lead-free glass, and flicker-free design. The company claims that the product's longevity and efficiency are not compromised by frequent on/off switching. Again – that would remain to be seen!

With automated lines, the company claims that it can turn out up to 16 million units monthly. It also has a minimum order requirement of 1000 units and can deliver orders in as fast as seven days.

The company claims to have earned several patents for its inventions. Its latest CCFL and LED lights with built-in dimmers enable users to reduce energy consumption — thus helping the environment and reduce energy expenses.

Since Aussmak Optoelectronics also happens to be a verified supplier, I don't think that buyers need to be that concerned about the quality of the product or the authenticity of the supplier.

Now, I find that some other suppliers have started sending me products, besides those unique ones from the show organizers. Don't know how many of those I'd be able to write about. However, I shall try my best.

An electric or electronic device that regulates the voltage going to a light source as a means of varying the intensity of the light emitted by the source.
That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
The general term for the application of light to a subject. It should not be used in place of the specific quantity illuminance.
The emission and/or propagation of energy through space or through a medium in the form of either waves or corpuscular emission.
