Bridgelux, Inc. Launches New Integrated Smart Module LED Array with Open Platform Technology

Bridgelux debuted the first of its integrated smart module suite of products at the 2015 Light Fair International Conference in New York. Bridgelux's Xenio product is compatible with a greater variety of standards, protocols and other technologies to ensure ease of integration, greater value and future functionality. The Xenio smart platform features tightly integrated controls, local intelligence and communications capabilities, and smooth dimming down to 0.1% of light output. In addition, the product delivers superior light quality and the high efficacy integrated module now available on the market. Bridgelux worked with key technology partners and customers to include compelling features in this new platform to meet the demands of ease of integration, performance, light quality and value required by luminaire manufacturers and their end customers. A truly open platform, the Xenio smart lighting array is designed to be compatible with multiple communication protocols including Bluetooth® Smart, Zigbee®, DMX 512, DALI® and common controls standards including 0-10V. The product has also been architected to enable advanced software, offering integration with Avi-on's Bluetooth based system as well as Harvard Engineering's EyeNut platform. These systems offer users the freedom to commission, configure and readily control their own lighting to optimize energy savings and the lighting experience. Available in three array sizes, the smart lighting array self-monitors its real-time health and temperature and stores historical operating data in order to optimize performance and value with status reporting that is DMX 512/RDM capable. The product is powered by the emerging 48 VDC standard, increasingly popular for its high efficiency while still being regulated as low voltage. This forward looking standard offers multiple options for powering light fixtures. The Xenio solution features multiple options for 48 VDC power supplies including fixture integrated constant voltage power supplies, a room level power hub with Class 2 cabling that uses low voltage to power eight to 10 fixtures and a Power over Ethernet (PoE) data switch. The product's open, integrated platform is architected to help future-proof luminaire designs for easy, cost effective upgrades to future Bridgelux smart lighting products featuring, for example, innovative tunable white capabilities, sensor technology or other data-focused innovations. Samples of the product will be available in September 2015, with production availability beginning January 2016 in the U.S. and Europe.

Bridgelux Launches New Human Centric Chip-on-Board LED Arrays

Bridgelux announced that the company will debut its new Vero Decor Series Class A Chip-on-Board (CoB) LED array products at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair 2014. The launch of the Decor Series Class A arrays marks Bridgelux's new "human-centric" approach to product development and color targeting by using Gamut Area Index (GAI) to measure how light and color appeal to and are perceived by the human brain. Available through global channels in mid-November, the new Decor Series Class A arrays are the first products to use the full Class A Color specification from the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Alliance for Solid-State Illumination Systems and Technologies (ASSIST). In research and development since 2002, Class A Color was created at the LRC with funding by ASSIST. Class A Color redefines high color quality of light. The long-term study examined how people perceive white light sources and what they prefer in terms of color rendering and the white hue or tint of a light source. Bridgelux specifiers and engineers developed prototype lamps based on the Class A Color spectral requirements for the LRC to use in field evaluations.

Bridgelux Announces Expansion of V Series Line of LED Chip on Board Products

Bridgelux to introduce its new V10 and V15 LED array products at Light Fair International (LFI) 2014 show in Las Vegas, further expanding its V Series(TM) line of LED Chip on Board light sources. These cost-effective products extend the technology and performance of the highly regarded Bridgelux(R) Vero(TM) line of LED arrays, featuring high flux density in small light source size packages. The V10 and V15 products are particularly well suited for commercial and residential lighting markets requiring high quality and tight beam control. Since the launch of the V Series(TM) product line in September 2013 the technology has seen tremendous adoption shipping millions of units in only seven months on the market, in more than 20 countries, representing a quarterly growth rate of 52%. In addition to providing high quality light with high flux density, the Bridgelux V10 and V15 LED light source products offer a compelling total cost of ownership advantage over incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent technologies with greater energy efficiencies and a projected lifetime of over 20 years. The V10 and V15 products produce up to 118 nominal lumens per watt (Lm/W). Typical applications for the V10 and V15 light sources include down lights, track and spot lighting, and landscape lighting with V15 being an ideal replacement for 35W ceramic metal halide luminaires. Nominal lumen outputs range from 1,000 to 3,000 lumens for V10 and V15 respectively. The V10 and V15 chip on board LED products are available in variety of CCT and CRI options and are compatible with optics, drivers, and holders readily available from third party suppliers. With more than 9,000 hours of LM80 test data and R9 values that exceed California Energy Commission requirements for luminaires and lamps, these new V Series arrays support Energy Star and other rebate programs while also including ANSI compliant 3-step binning, thereby reducing SKUs while bringing consistent high quality white-point light to this new segment.
