Nexxus Lighting, a developer of light emitting diode and fiber optic lighting, has received its 24th patent for its technology.

The newest patent is for a LED lighting system used in submersible environments such as pools.

Nexxus plans to pursue licensing of technology for production in products designed to be used in pools, spas, fountains and commercial landscaping.

“As solid-state lighting expands its penetration into white light illumination, submersible applications such as fountains, pools and architectural water features are being transformed by digital technology,” said Mike Bauer, chief executive officer of Nexxus.”In order for these new high brightness LED arrays to achieve their promoted 30,000 to 50,000 hour rated life, we are developing new thermal management techniques to provide proper heat sinking.”
