Research Triangle Park, NC, United States, 2005/08/16 - The U.S. Patent Office has allowed 22 patent claims covering the Cyberlux Emergency Lighting Augmentation System.
Cyberlux Corporation (OTCBB: CYBL), a developer and manufacturer of solid- state diodal™ lighting solutions, announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has awarded protection for the Company's "Apparatus and Methods for Providing an Emergency Lighting Augmentation System."
"Cyberlux Corporation is an emerging leader in the field of solid-state semiconductor lighting," observed Donald F. Evans, chief executive officer of Cyberlux. "The Company's ability to patent innovative lighting technology for recurring problems such as power outages demonstrates opportunity for major breakthroughs in the lighting industry where fail-safe, long-term solutions for interim and emergency lighting are in high demand," continued Evans. "The 22 claims awarded by the U.S. Patent Office for our Emergency Lighting Augmentation System will accelerate our further pursuit of providing long-term solutions for interim and emergency lighting markets with our patented solid- state lighting technology," concluded Evans.
The claims awarded by the U.S. Patent Office address a lighting system capable of providing long-term solutions for emergency and interim lighting. Specifically, these claims address the solid-state lighting elements and associated devices for providing emergency or temporal lighting mounted adjacent to the existing lighting system; the control circuit in electronic communication with solid-state lighting system including wireless communication; the power sensing technology for sensing power disruption in a main power supply which illuminates the lighting elements upon sensing power disruption to determining the electrical power state of an environment. Specifically, the patent addresses an electrochemical lighting system capable of providing prolonged illumination with the use of light emitting diodes (LEDs) as the illumination source. The patent embodies lighting devices capable of providing long-term solutions for interim and emergency lighting via an array of LEDs, the means for providing electrical energy to the LED array, the capability of multi-level light intensity consistent with light longevity and power source relationships including conventional A/C, solar, various electrochemical assemblies or all other means of electrical energy support.
The development of Cyberlux's ReliaBright Emergency Lighting System (ELS) led to the patent filing. The ReliaBright ELS is designed to retrofit as an augmentation to existing lighting systems in commercial buildings, and it can be adapted for a variety of applications and uses. These claims lead to new opportunities for the ReliaBright ELS technology in the commercial, military and homeland security markets. The product includes a control module powered by a constant charge battery and monitored by a sensor. The sensor differentiates between "power-off at the wall switch" and "power-out in the building's electrical service." The system's light intensity is determined by the number of solid-state lighting elements that are connected in series. Light levels range from "moonlight" to "daylight" consistent with the needs of the space in which the ReliaBright ELS is installed.
