MinebeaMitsumi's Smart LED Lighting 'SALIOT' to Be First Used
by Yamada Shadowless Lamp for Medical Lightning Equipment

- CF-V1W Ceiling-Embedded LED Examination Light -

MinebeaMitsumi Inc. has begun provision of the CF-V1W product featuring smart LED Lighting 'SALIOT' (Smart Adjustable Light for the Internet Of Things) to Yamada Shadowless Lamp Co., Ltd. for its newest model. Yamada Shadowless Lamp specializes in the development, manufacture, and sale of medical lighting equipment.

The project for this product began with Yamada Shadowless Lamp's move to transition its halogen-bulb based devices currently on the market to LED devices, during which process MinebeaMitsumi's SALIOT gained attention for its characteristics as a moving lighting solution. Yamada Shadowless Lamp is experienced with the demands of medical lighting, being well-versed in the qualities and characteristics of lighting necessary in the medical field, as well as anti-electromagnetic noise and anti-glare measures. This wealth of experience was put to use over the roughly two-year project, which reached the trial sales stage in March 2021; full-fledged sales of the Ceiling-Embedded LED Examination Light will begin this September.

Using a smartphone or tablet, one can easily move SALIOT up, down, left, or right, adjust the light distribution angle, and adjust light intensity.
Lighting products used in medical settings serve purposes beyond general lighting in hospitals—these products must also be able to illuminate affected areas of patients with the necessary level of brightness for various medical examinations and treatments, such as tracheostomies, intravenous drips in ICUs, and so on. Additionally, as the lighting targets do not always occupy the same position, it is also necessary to provide the necessary and sufficient amount of light to the lighting field (lighting environment) and adjust the position of the light source. Because SALIOT can easily adjust the optimal light intensity and positioning, it has now been adopted as a lighting product that reflects these needs that arise in medical settings.

SALIOT sets the scene to concentrate light from several lighting units in one place, creating a lighting field with minimal shadows and enabling the smooth progress of medical treatment.
It can also be tilted up to 45 degrees in a horizontal direction, making it possible to set up a wide range of lighting fields. The extensive range of movement of the lighting enables sufficient cover of the patient and bed space to shine the required light.

During nighttime treatment, leakage of light outside of a given treatment area can be prevented by use of the optional SALIOT honeycomb louver (*1), which minimizes leakage of light outside of the target area. This has the advantage of providing a gentle lighting environment both for the patients near the scene of the treatment and to the medical staff as well.
While this moveable lighting product is installed by embedding it into the ceiling, it is designed to have an extremely low number of protrusions from the ceiling surface, enabling it to blend well into a room that originally has no protruding features.

Looking forward, this product is expected to see use in ICUs, NICUs, obstetrics and gynecology units (delivery/oocyte retrieval), veterinary hospitals, dental surgeries, clinics, and so on. In addition to the Japanese market, the product will also be offered and sold in Southeast Asian markets, such as Taiwan, and ASEAN countries.
