Livermore, Calif., September 14, 2010 – Bridgelux Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies and solutions today announced the expansion of its portfolio of award- winning LED Arrays to include new high efficacy products that meet the price and performance demands of the $10 billion LED retrofit bulb market opportunity.
Featuring a broad product portfolio, industry leading light output performance, superior color quality and high efficacy across the white color spectrum, Bridgelux is now delivering high brightness, energy efficient light for both low and line (mains) voltage products to simplify system design and integration for lamp manufacturers.
The Bridgelux LS Array Series now includes options designed specifically for low voltage lighting. The new miniaturized LS arrays enable both diffuse and directional light sources for applications including landscape lighting, residential lighting, track lighting, MR16 lamps and other 12 volt retrofit light bulbs. Delivering between 240 and 360 lumens in warm and cool white, these products are ideal replacement options for low wattage halogen and incandescent lamps.
The Bridgelux ES Array Series has also been expanded to include new voltage options for both cool white and warm white to better enable the A-line and decorative lamp markets. The new ES arrays take advantage of existing electronic drivers to facilitate rapid new lamp and luminaire product introductions.
“As governments around the world rapidly move to eliminate inefficient incandescent lamps the demand is growing for LED replacement lamps that can deliver the quality of light required by consumers,” said Jason Posselt, Bridgelux vice president of marketing. “These new arrays deliver high quality light while simultaneously helping our customers reduce design complexity and product cost for this price sensitive market.”
