The second installment in this three-part series describes the latest products from the city.
LED lighting suppliers in Shenzhen are leveraging locational advantages to expand their selections for the midrange and high end. Many are targeting increased penetration of the architectural and commercial segments. A number are developing more models for illuminating streets and other public areas.
In line with this, makers are communicating regularly with clients, exchanging information on the latest trends and standards. Several enterprises are beefing up R&D capability by sending designers and technical personnel to local or international workshops and trade shows.
R&D work is primarily directed toward improving thermal dissipation for greater product efficiency, brightness and lumen maintenance. In the bulb category, the latest results of this effort have fin-shaped structures that let internal heat escape. Their copper components feature better thermal conductivity.
In addition, large businesses are employing high-grade chips from Taiwan and the US to ensure reliable performance. Automatic encapsulation is employed in manufacturing.
With regard to QC, most companies, regardless of size, follow ISO 9001 guidelines. Product specifications are tested for conformance to FCC, UL and other standards.
