FRANKFURT, GERMANY (April 16, 2010) – Future Lighting Solutions today announced rapid worldwide adoption of its new simpleLED® light engine program, which reduces design/prototyping cycles for solid-state lighting applications from as long as a year to as little as four weeks. Twelve off-the-shelf assemblies integrate circuit boards, LUXEON® Rebel LEDs, connectors and optics in different form factors, LED counts and color temperatures, eliminating months of sourcing, design and engineering work while also offering over 500 customization options for use in finished luminaires.
Announced in February, simpleLED light engines have quickly attracted innovative lighting designers from North America to Europe. Early adopters include a major retail chain, a popular entertainment franchise, and lighting engineers building LED retrofits. Other customers are using the simpleLED program to rapidly prototype new or retrofit LED luminaires to test customer responses before entering the production phase. Examples include LED street lights, 4” and 6” recessed downlights, and backlit signage boxes designed to replace fluorescent models.
“The strong response to our simpleLED program reflects the demand for shorter design and prototyping cycles that can significantly accelerate time to market and cut development costs for solid-state lighting applications,” said Danny Miller, Vice President - Lighting Integration for Future Lighting Solutions. “These new light engines are essential building blocks for manufacturers who want to take full advantage of LED lighting opportunities.”
12 Configurations Ready to Ship; Custom in 4 Weeks
The first off-the-shelf light engines in Future’s simpleLED program are available in 12 configurations with choices of form factor, LED count, color temperature, optics and connectors. Various configurations can be easily identified online by entering key attributes such a target light output in the Light Engine Builder available on Future Lighting Solutions’ website.
All products in the program offer a three-year warranty and are 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.
