Intelligent LED Lighting Business Unit Overview
Haltec Enterprises Pty Ltd was formed in 1998 to capitalise on the burgeoning Photonics market. There are many dimensions to this market including the application of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Semiconductor Lasers for communications, medicine, industry and lighting. Between 1998 and 2008, Haltec Enterprises focused on the communications segment of the Photonics market. In 2009, Haltec Enterprises broadened the scope of its business activities to include Intelligent LED Lighting systems.
In 12 years, LED Lighting has evolved to become common place in many facets of our lives, including: torches, bike lights, christmas lights and displays. Haltec Enterprises is now taking LED Lighting to the next level by introducing "Intelligent" Multipurpose LED Lighting systems for home, vehicle, camping, boating and small office applications. What differentiates new generation Intelligent LED Lighting systems from traditional LED Lighting products is their ability to sense and react to changes in their surrounding environment.
LED Lighting Products Designed for the Australian Market
Haltec Enterprises has specified and designed its LED Lighting Products to be the most flexible, Multi-purpose LED Lighting Systems available for the Australian market. On-going product improvements are implemented to keep ahead of cheap alternative LED Lighting products as they appear on the market. Haltec Enterpises LED Lighting products are specified and tested by independant Australian test laboratories to meet Australian regulatory, safety and Australia Post airmail delivery standards. As an additional product differentiator, all Haltec Enterprises LED Lighting products are tested in Sydney Australia before final delivery to customers.
Haltec Enterprises "Multipurpose" LED Lighting Products have the benefit that they can be used 24/7 all year round, thus maximising your value for money. This is achieved by adding "intelligence" to traditional LED Work Lights, Camping and Boating Lights so that they can also be used as Portable Emergency Lights when they are not being used for the other applications. Multipurpose LED Lights have the benefit that as an Emergency Light, they are normally on-charge in readiness for a power blackout and thus are always charged and ready to be used as a Work Light, Camping Light or Boating Light.
The following are some examples of LED Lighting product improvements that Haltec Enterprises has included to meet Australian requirements:
- For safety reasons, Haltec Enterprises has eliminated direct 240VAC powering and has eliminated cheap, non Australian-standard 240VAC power cords. Customers don't want flimsy 240VAC power cables running up walls or over any distance to a LED Light. Haltec Enterprises rechargeable LED Lights are all powered via an external 240VAC to 12VDC Voltage Adapter which plugs directly into a mains power socket and has approx. 3 metres (in total) of safe, extra low voltage cabling to the LED Light. Such low voltage operation is essential so that the LED Lighting products can be used by children. The Voltage Adapter may cost a little more, but then most Australians would not compromise the safety of their family members to save a few dollars.
- Since these are Portable Multipurpose LED Lights, it is inappropriate for them to be fitted with Lead-Acid batteries, and yet just about every Portable LED Lighting product that is sold in Australia as an Emergency Light includes Lead-Acid batteries. Worse still, some of these products have the Lead-Acid batteries wired in parallel with no short-circuit protection. This is potentially dangerous due to the risk of explosion and fire and such products are prohibited for carriage by ICAO and Australia Post. Haltec Enterpises rechargeable LED Lighting products on the other hand are all powered using standard NiMH rechargeable AA 1.2V batteries which are connected in series, not parallel. Another Multi-purpose product benefit of this design is that the Haltec Enterprises 24-LED Light and newer versions of the 30-LED Light (as supplied with the LED Safety Lighting Box sets is now a source of fully charged AA batteries which can be used in an emergency to take that most important holiday snap when your camera batteries have just died. Additionally, the 24-LED Light and the newer 30-LED Lights can be used in an emergency to recharge other AA 1.2V rechargeable batteries of a similar current rating for your camera or other portable device.

Gift Boxes of LED Lighting Products
Haltec Enterprises Multipurpose LED Lighting Products are sold individually under the product name "LED Emergency Lights" and in pairs under the Box-Set product names "LED Safety Candles" and "LED Safety Lighting". These Gift Boxes are ideal for Birthdays and Christmas - especially for those family members who seem to have everything and are hard to buy for.
Your elderly family members and friends in particular are vulnerable during a power blackout if they are unable to get to and activate an alternative source of lighting due to a disability or they may trip in the dark and injure themselves while trying to get to an alternative source of lighting. In Australia, power blackouts often occur due to: lighting strikes during thunder storms; violent wind storms; tripping of power systems during bush fires; over-loading of house-hold circuit-breakers or blown fuses; and local maintenance and failure of power distribution systems.
Both the elderly and the young are vulnerable if the only backup source of lighting that they have available during a power blackout are wax candles. Research statistics* have shown that accidental candle fires account for approximately 4% of residential fires. Yet candles are often the first form of backup lighting used by residents in the event of a blackout due to thunder storms, bush fires and other electrical power failures.
Haltec Enterprises Multipurpose LED Lighting Products offer greater safety and protection to your loved ones through their intelligent sensing of an electrical mains power failure and automatically turning-on the LED Lights, providing sufficient illumination to light up a small room with many hours of continuous operation.
