“As history demonstrates, Bridgelux
respects the intellectual property rights of
others and will not be intimidated by the
misuse of litigation from those seeking an
unfair advantage or seeking to limit the
advantage Bridgelux has earned from our
technology investments,” said Tim Lester, CEO of Bridgelux.
Ironically, Bridgelux was for a long time
focused on high-power LEDs and arrays and
produced some of the largest discrete LEDs
in the industry and then moved into the chip-on-board (COB) LED sector. But the company
also launched into the mid-power sector after
being acquired by China Electronics Company in 2015 ( http://bit.ly/1MGOFzp).

been the target of IP action as opposed to
the party bringing action against a competitor. For years, we have followed the ongoing

Mobilized LED lighting
system grows grass on
Bundesliga soccer pitch
Horticultural LED-based lighting is a hot
topic for applications ranging from herbs to
tomatoes to legalized and medicinal can-
nabis (p. 7), but SSL
can also be used to
grow lawn-style grass
on athletic fields. The
FC Köln (FC Cologne)
football club of the
(top German pro soc-
cer league) is using
a mobilized LED light structure that can
move around the team’s training and
match pitches (fields), ensuring that the
grass is in top shape despite the stress
caused by regular usage. Hennef, Germany-
based Rhenac GreenTec AG developed
the LED lighting system that further uses
Tina2 optics from Finland-based LEDiL
Oy to deliver the required beam pattern for
the unique application.
Rhenac makes a number of LED-based
lighting products for applications ranging from architectural lighting products
to traditional horticultural lighting products such as we have covered on a regular
basis ( http://bit.ly/2fwtLZB). The company
sells those horticultural products under the
brand LabLED and the target market thus far
appears to be research on plant production.
The sports pitch product is called Green-keeperLED. The large wheeled grow-light
structure was developed based on research
