Remote Compressor Color Changing Warning Light
In 2009 in cooperation with an Oil & Gas group, Nemalux designed fixtures for installation in a remote compressor site. The installation consists of several white LED floodlights (XCANLED-DC) and colour-changing LED floodlights that serve as an early H2S warning system.
Nemalux provided a sophisticated custom control panel that receives information from the H2S sensors, interprets the readings, and translates the different parts per million levels into pre-programmed light signals. Colour changing floodlights (XCANLED) were installed inside and outside of the facility to provide an advanced warning system for the site operator. The exterior lights were outfitted with a frosted shroud (as can be seen in the following images) to be highly visible to the operator before entering the danger zone.

Transit Bus – Driver controlled Traffic Signal Delay
The City of Calgary required a new control system for their drivers to give them extra time to go through a traffic light. By pressing a switch ahead of the traffic signal, the transit bus emits a signal which is received by the Opticom traffic light system mounted at the traffic post. The signal activates the transit priority system to provide the bus with additional time (green light) to proceed through the intersection safely. When the transit priority system is activated, the blue light indicator is turned ON to inform the bus driver that the request has been received and additional time will be provided to proceed through the intersection.
The City required a bus light indicator that could be implemented easily in the field with minimal time and labor investment. Previously the indicator lights were made on-site and modifications to signal cabinets were required to make them work. This method required 6 man-hours plus the cost of materials which was not effective. Nemalux was the only manufacturer who could fulfill the City Transit Authority’s requirement.

NASA Custom Wind Tunnel Lighting
One of the more challenging applications for lighting systems is the illumination of confined spaces. Such a challenge was presented to the Nemalux team by members of the NASA Ames Research Center. Built in 1956, the Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California is an impressive example of engineering and design. As part of the continuous improvement program, the facility has been testing a variety of LED systems to increase existing light levels, decrease maintenance cost and improve visibility for a wide range of cameras and sensors.
After a meticulous evaluation process, the XCANLED and GSLED fixtures have been selected for the project. Currently, the Wind Tunnel Division is using the XCANLED floodlights to provide general illumination inside the tunnel and linear low profile GSLED lights are replacing fluorescent fixtures inside the confined space surrounding the tunnel. In contrast with most options that have been evaluated, the Nemalux flood lights are able to maintain optimal case temperature when exposed to the low-pressure environment of the Wind Tunnel during normal operation. Special considerations were given to the lens selection for the linear lights. While preventing excessive glare, the GSLED linear lights deliver exceptionally high-quality light, allowing operators close proximity without experiencing glare discomfort. The low voltage operation of both fixtures provides additional safety to the NASA personnel and removes the dangers associated with high voltage lines in confined spaces. For more info, visit here.
Nemalux has been exploring the use of UV band LEDs for germicidal disinfection. Interest has grown since the covid-19 crisis. Visit our Germicidal disinfection page here.
