Optogan takes lean to the extreme with 500W COB LED platform
The firm's X10 offers a modular approach for luminaire designs from 1,100 lumens to 55,000 lumens and can be used in a variety of different shapes and sizes
Optogan’s new X10 Chip-on-Board module (COB) is based on the vision of scaleability and lean processing for luminaire manufacturing.
The modules can be used in applications for LED-retrofits, downlights, industrial and street lighting as well as flood and stage lights as they come in various sizes and forms.
The X10 COB-block consists of 50 segments which can easily be divided into LED elements of smaller sizes and power, and each of these can be used in separate light fittings. The smallest segment of Optogan´s “single X10” consists of a 1cm² ceramic board and consumes 10 W (1 A, 10 V), with efficacy levels currently exceeding 100 lm/W.
The product's ceramic base and the materials used are optimised for long life performance. The new technology incorporates smart binning and uses the firm's lean in-house production.
Optogan says the COB was designed for direct mounting on heat sinks and offers a smaller footprint than conventional solutions. The firm is also offering an X10 system specific accessory, which is a universal connector providing both electrical and mechanical interfaces for assembly and optics.
The multinational engineering team achieved the requested target to develop a unified COB module portfolio for simplified application, handling, increased performance and lifetime at a universal level.
“X10 represents Optogan’s new flagship, offering modular solutions, economical and simple to use, for that additional degree of freedom in lighting design. Coupled with state of the art module efficiency exceeding 100 lm/W, the X10 provides our clients the maximum possible variety in steps of 10W reaching up to 500W. The positive feedback from our key customers confirms, that our latest development is covering the missing white spot in LED landscape”, says Markus Zeiler General Manager Global Sales & Marketing at Optogan GmbH in Germany.
The first international introduction of the X10 is taking place at the Embedded World 2012 conference in Nuremberg, Germany upto 1st March 2012.
The company says it is currently ramping up pre-series production of the X10.
