Bridgelux and BJB Announce Poke-In Availability for Vero® Series Arrays

Bridgelux announced that it will debut its new Vero SE with poke-in connectivity at this year's LIGHTFAIR International in San Diego, CA. The new co-development initiative between Bridgelux and BJB will integrate an advanced array platform and holder system enabling poke-in wire connectivity with the Chip on Board (COB) array product family from Bridgelux. The new Vero SE arrays are based on seventh generation technology, and will offer new improvements and innovation in ease of use, design flexibility and energy efficiency. With poke-in connectivity, customers will benefit from simplified manufacturing and assembly processes. Secondary connector and holder components will not be required, and the integration of arrays into fixtures will be more streamlined without the need for soldering. Like existing Vero Series products, Vero SE will be offered with the industry's only ten-year limited warranty, will include the same optical alignment holes, and will remain Zhaga compatible.

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.
