Wireless networks of energy efficient dynamically controlled LED sources

Experimental technique and devices

The paper presents the results of development and practical implementation of wireless networks of controlled spectrally tunable light emitting diode (LED) light sources using RF transceivers operating in the unlicensed frequency bands of 868 and 2400 MHz. Such sources allow synthesizing either a white light with various color temperatures or a colored light with different tints; they are of significant interest in connection with general lighting and with some special applications. The problems of practical realization of light sources and their optimization with respect to luminous efficiency, dynamic range and the distance of wireless control have been investigated.
