LED is probably chosen because just switch on means a very constant load anticipated, which is probably required with the current status of his device due to complications of control.
I wonder whether Rossi anticipated LED dimming.
LED dimming usually is done by power modulation which might be disadvantageous for the current ECAT.
Dimming option is an absolute requirement that needs to be included.
Rob, you are analyzing this as if a real "product" exists. Why?
This will be just a cobbled together set of LEDs fed from the mains.
The reason Rossi went this route is because LED efficiency throws a layer of obfuscation that will allow him to claim nonsense which his minions will accept.
This single unit "SKLed" ploy will ensure he can't/won't test the power in and out of the actual ecat skl (if such a thing really exists).
Here is a quick sanity check. Rossisays they will manufacture 1 million a year, and that they are manufactured by Leonardo Corporation.
Yet Leonardo Corporation has no verifiable employees, no sign of hiring anyone, nobody on Linked In, no job posts on Monster or Indeed.
For all the years Rossi has talked about partners, there was only ever one: IH. How did that turn out?
