Sunnyvale, Calif., February 3, 2010 – Bridgelux Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of integrated, solid-state lighting solutions, today unveiled three new LED array product families that deliver high-quality, energy-efficient light sources cost-optimized for the burgeoning solid-state lighting market. These new products are designed to replace incandescent, halogen, high intensity discharge (HID) and compact fluorescent lighting. The low power consumption, long lifetime, and high quality light of the Bridgelux LED Arrays deliver ideal options for indoor and outdoor applications ranging from retrofit light bulbs to street and wide area lighting. Bridgelux believes these products will help drive transformation of the $40 billion global lighting industry into a $100 billion market opportunity.
“With a broad range of solid-state light sources delivering performance and value to virtually all industry market segments, Bridgelux is well-positioned to help our customers meet all of their design application needs within the context of increasingly stringent global regulatory requirements,” said Jason Posselt, Bridgelux vice president of marketing. “These new products reflect Bridgelux’s core strength – the ability to reduce design complexity and simplify lighting system development and integration, while aggressively driving down the cost of solid-state lighting to enable widespread adoption.”
The Bridgelux LED Array product portfolio now features light output performance that ranges from 240 to 4500 operational or “hot” lumens (lumens under normal operating conditions), providing a full breadth of LED solutions to replace a broad range of high-volume conventional light sources. The new products and their features are summarized below.
The Bridgelux ES Array Series enables lamp and luminaire manufacturers to cost-effectively meet rapidly increasing global regulatory standards for general lighting such as Energy Star and Title 24 in the United States, Part L in the United Kingdom and others. The series delivers between 400 and 2000 “hot” lumens in a compact high flux density light source, enabling the replacement of incandescent, halogen and fluorescent conventional light sources. These new arrays are 30-60% more energy-efficient than previous product generations while dramatically reducing the price per lumen.
The Bridgelux RS Array Series delivers high light output for applications including retail, street, wide area, high bay, and commercial lighting, replacing conventional light sources such as 50-70-Watt metal halide (HID) and high wattage compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps. These arrays produce between 3100 and 4500 “hot” lumens, enabling clean and uniform lighting effects without pixilation and excellent beam control for precision lighting. In retail lighting installations, these arrays have delivered a return on investment of less than two years while delivering the high quality of light proven to positively influence product turnover and customer experience in this environment.
The Bridgelux LS Array Series is a new set of miniaturized LED arrays that enable both diffuse and directional light sources for applications including landscape lighting, home luminaires, white goods and retrofit light bulbs. Delivering between 240 and 360 lumens, these products are ideal replacement options for low wattage halogen, incandescent and CFL lamps.
Bridgelux LED arrays are RoHS compliant. In addition, Bridgelux is in the process of securing UL recognition for its entire range of LED array products to further simplify the design and customer acceptance process. Please visit Bridgelux for technical details regarding each product.
