Without the inventions we have today, we would not be able to communicate through the internet, drive cars, or even eat french fries. Thanks to inventors, we can do all these things and even more. One famous inventor, Thomas Edison, created incandescent light bulbs, photographs, motion pictures, and many other things. Over his lifetime, Thomas acquired more than 1000 patents for all his inventions. Thomas Edison is one of the most renowned inventors to this day. To pay respect to how he has changed and bettered the world, United States president Ronald Reagan declared February 11, Thomas Edison’s birthday, as National Inventors Day to celebrate him and all the other creative and innovative individuals.
After many years of experimentation, Thomas Edison cracked the code into a practical incandescent light bulb. The secret was a high-resistance cotton filament that burned over 14 hours and consumed less electricity than other models. By combining the filament and the Sprengel air pump invention, Thomas improved the suction of gasses out of glass bulbs. As a result, the incandescent light bulb was born. The invention of the incandescent light bulb leads to numerous other lighting developments which have impacted the lighting industry and countless other industries that use lighting technology. At E.B. Horsman, our partners have the latest lighting advancements to ensure you get the best products whenever you need them.

With all good inventions comes research and development; this is why Ledalite invested millions of dollars into their technology development and revolutionized the lighting industry with their MesoOptics. MesoOptics is a new scientific breakthrough inspired by nature that replicates the same effect of butterfly wing’s three-dimensional crystal nanostructures that selectively curve and scatter light using holographic technology. With the use of patented processes, the lighting distributions are less than 5 microns in size; these light distributions are applied to a recyclable substrate that creates a highly efficient and unique lighting control approach. MesoOptics can be customizable to fit the requirements of any environment. For help customizing your Ledalite MesoOptics, contact your local E.B. Horsman branch.
Technology that helps maximize the influence of lighting every day by creating different ambiances.
Another innovation in the lighting industry is the Coopers Wavelinx connected lighting system. The scalable and integrated system composed of sensors, keypads, luminaries, and more components allows for flexibility and compatibility. Not only is the system energy efficient, but it also meets the comfort requirements for everyday life. Additionally, it complies with ASHRAE 90.1 building code needed for commercial buildings. The innovative system can solve many lighting concerns in commercial buildings like universities, hospitals, and offices. From just your mobile device, you can light up a single room or an entire campus. Two types of connectivity are offered within the Wavelinx system, wired and wireless. The Wavelinx Wireless system connects multiple floors, buildings, and sites managed with your mobile device. Wavelinx Wireless is ideal for indoor, outdoor, commercial, and industrial applications. The Wavelinx Wired connections allow for complex features and controls. With Wavelinx’s two-wire local bus, you can light up a single space or an environment with complex lighting control specifications. Both connectivity systems have a comprehensive portfolio of voltage luminaires with embedded sensors, ceiling sensors, control devices, wall stations, and accessories, providing optimal choices to create the system you want.
