HONG KONG, CHINA, November 13, 2017 — Premier lighting industry experts from around the world, including representatives from MoonLED’s three regional service centers, gathered for the 19th Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition). The event, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), drew more than 650 brands and upward of 2,700 companies with the purpose of highlighting the best products and emerging trends in the industry. In a post-event survey conducted by the HKTDC, respondents considered household lighting (29 percent) to have the greatest growth potential in 2018, followed by LED and green lighting products (24 percent) and commercial lighting (16 percent).
These growth areas are impacted by the internet of things (IoT) or internet-connected objects.

When combined with a variable resistor or potentiometer the XLD dimming modules can result in flicker-free dimming. With the support of up to 28VDC x 1000mA, or 28 watts of input power, and easy installation, the XLD series dimming modules are an ideal choice for commercial needs of any scale.
