Bridgelux Introduces New Line of Chip-On-Board LED Array Products
Sep 25 13
Bridgelux introduced a new line of Chip-on-Board LED array products called the Bridgelux(R) V Series(TM). These cost-effective light engines extend the technology and performance of the highly successful Bridgelux Vero(TM) line, feature high flux density in small source size packages and are well suited for sub 1000 lumen commercial and residential lighting markets where tight beam control and high quality light matter. The Bridgelux V Series LED arrays were developed to bring Bridgelux light source technology to a growing segment of sub 1000 lumen applications such as PAR lamps, MR-16 lamps, small aperture down lights, landscape spots and security lights, track lights, spots, and accent lights. According to Strategies Unlimited, the worldwide LED PAR Replacement Lamp market size alone is expected to grow from 13 million units in 2011 to 47 million units in 2016. The V Series LED arrays initially consist of two light engine sizes (V6 and V8) with multiple electrical configurations, CCT and CRI combinations, enabling greater design-in flexibility and energy-efficiencies. These light engines can be efficiently driven at twice the nominal current, which translates into enhanced system flexibility and industry leading lumen per dollar performance.
Bridgelux Releases Vero(TM) Series of LED Array Products
Jul 18 13
Bridgelux announced that its recently released Vero(TM) Series of LED Array products are now shipping with performance efficacy (120 lm/w nominal, 110 lm/w minimum average). This performance enhancement delivers energy savings of approximately 11% over the prior product generation and provides a significantly accelerated return on investment. Further, the Vero Series arrays are now available with 2SDCM MacAdam and 3 SDCM options -- raising the industry bar in color control precision and uniformity. The featured 120 lm/w efficacy is an average performance across all form factors in the Bridgelux Vero Array Series based on 3000K 80 CRI configurations driven at nominal currents. With some Vero configurations driven at lower currents, users can readily achieve efficacies up to 140 lm/w. The Vero arrays also deliver industry leading average minimums of 110 lm/w and provide designers with best-in-class design and manufacturability flexibility. The Vero platform enables plug & play connectivity for lighting manufacturers, enabling leading solid state lighting product performance capabilities while streamlining production processes for lighting manufacturers. These capabilities lead to shorter product development times, lower inventory requirements, reduced costs and more light with less energy. Beyond saving energy, the Bridgelux Vero Series of LED arrays delivers another industry first by providing customers with a standard option of choosing either 2SDCM or 3SDCM MacAdam color control. Having more precise color control options improves the quality of light by providing greater consistency and uniformity between adjacent light sources. This exciting advancement in color control options with the Vero Array Series enables clean and consistent lighting installations with both high quality color rendering and appearance. The Vero Series also exceeds California Energy Commission R9 requirements for luminaires and lamps. Vero arrays are compatible with a wide variety of standard drivers (350mA increments) and optical components, providing manufacturers with greater flexibility and a wide range of options, shortening product development times, lowering inventory requirements and reducing costs. Electrical connections can be established with thermally isolated solder pads or by using a solder-less on-board connector port. The solder free connector port simplifies manufacturing processes, reduces production time/cost, and eliminates the potential for solder failures. Vero Series Arrays are available now in four different sizes with performance specifications to fit a broad spectrum of residential, commercial, industrial and interior/exterior applications. Other features include: 1. Lumen output performance ranges from 240 to 16,400 lumens; 2. Broad range of CCT options from 2700 to 5000K; 3. CRI options include 70, 80, 90, and 97 CRI Décor(TM) products; 4. 3SDCM standard for 2700K - 4000K CCT with 2SDCM options now available; 5. Reliable operation at up to 2x rated drive current; 6. Radial die pattern improves lumen density and beam control; 7. Thermally isolated solder pads reduce manufacturing time and complexity; 8. Solder-less connector port enables plug & play connectivity and field upgradability; 9. Top side product marking and 2D bar code improve inventory management.
