Following recent patent approval by the US Patent and Trademark Office for its LED lighting control system, Light-Based Technologies (“LBT”) has released its new “Triac” dimming solution for LED lighting fixtures. Triac dimming is crucial to the adoption of solid state lighting (LED) within the retrofit market as triac dimmers have been the most common light controller installed in the 110 million North American households over the past 25 years. The release of this product further opens the door for LBT to help make available cost-efficient, user-friendly LED lighting systems to commercial and residential markets as once standard incandescent lighting is phased out.
