Derwent's AEGIS lamps use brand new technology

Derwent Systems Ltd, security lighting specialist and member of the Bosch Group, was selected to represent the North East region in the Innovation Through Technology category at the 2008 Chamber Awards for its AEGIS UFLED illuminators. 
 
The Chamber Awards, launched by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) in 2004, recognise and celebrate business excellence through the successes and achievements of its Accredited Chambers of Commerce, their members and non-members. The award for Innovation Through Technology is for businesses putting technology to good use, and using it to make a difference.
 
Derwent's AEGIS lamps are the only illuminators to automatically control and adjust light output to compensate for LED degradation. This patent pending technology called Constant Light guarantees a constant level of lighting performance for the life of the illuminator, and enables uncompromising night-time performance.
 

This success for AEGIS follows on from the Best New Technology Award, which Derwent won earlier in the year at the North East Business Awards.
 
Commenting on the recognition that Derwent's AEGIS range is receiving, Robert Scrafton, Derwent's Product Manager said: "AEGIS is the only LED illuminator specifically designed to compensate for LED degradation over time. The optical output of a typical LED illuminator degrades by up to 10% within the first few months of operation and then continues during its operational life resulting in poor light output, reduced image quality and reduced illumination range. It is a serious performance related issue identified by security specifiers, consultants, and end users alike, so we are pleased that our innovation in addressing this problem has been recognised."
 
"We are delighted to be acknowledged in the Chamber Awards, which have great credibility throughout the business community and reinforces our innovation credential to our customers."
 
The winners were announced at a Gala Dinner on 27th November at the National History Museum, London.
