MONTREAL, QUEBEC (February 2, 2010) – Future Lighting Solutions today announced an exclusive line of light engines designed to accelerate the development, prototyping and delivery of solid state lighting applications as well as reduce fixture development costs. The first light engines in the new simpleLED program are available in 12 form factors and 600-plus customization options, all featuring ANSI-binned LUXEON® Rebel LEDs integrated with key components.
Twelve off-the-shelf configurations – available for immediate shipment – include linear, circular and square layouts with 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 9 white 3000K, 3500K or 4000K LEDs. Each assembly incorporates circuit boards, LEDs, Tyco Electronics connectors, and 10mm, 20mm, Tri-Lens or ultra-wide Carclo optics. Applications range from recessed downlights to low bay, cove, wall wash, display case, under cabinet, desk/task and street/area lighting.
Custom configurations can be easily specified online with Future’s new Light Engine Builder and shipped in four weeks. Additional customization including color LEDs and alternative optics is available with slightly longer lead times.
“LED light engines save time and development costs for smaller manufacturers, those with limited LED development experience, companies with rapid prototyping needs, and others by reducing engineering, sourcing and assembly needs. But until now, the selection in the market has been very small,” said Danny Miller, Vice President - Lighting Integration for Future Lighting Solutions. “The breadth of product and extensive customization available through our simpleLED program mark a quantum leap in simplifying solid state lighting development.”
All light engines in the program offer a three-year manufacturer’s warranty as well as the full benefits of the LUXEON Rebel platform, including the ability to support drive currents up to 1000mA, compliance with ANSI color binning requirements, and a minimum CRI of 80. The LEDs are also UL Recognized, eliminating the need for a full in-system LED component investigation to obtain UL Listed status for new luminaires built with Future’s light engines.
