Optogan`s HBLEDs Now In Mass Production
The company's high-power III-nitride based X10 modules Chip-on-Board LEDs reduce the manufacturing costs of energy-efficient light sources
On 15th October, LED manufacturer Optogan started mass production of high-power X10 modules in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Based on scalability, flexibility and lean processing, the X10 modular LED based Chip-on-Board solution significantly reduces the manufacturing costs of energy-efficient light sources.
“The opening of the X10 production line with a production capacity of 40,000 units per month will make LED technology accessible to a wider range of customers in the near future," said Vladislav Bougrov, the Executive Vice-President of Optogan, during the opening ceremony.
The compact X10 LED has a module efficiency over 110lm/W, and an optimal price and convenient size for mounting. Optogan has already produced modules consisting of 72 items that can be easily divided into LED elements of smaller sizes and power.

The flexible X10 starts with a single unit of 10W. The biggest X10 module can provide maximum luminous flux of nearly 80,000 lumens with a power consumption of 720W.
The X10 can be used for various applications. These include halogen lamp analogues, light fittings, single designer lamps, fixtures with reflectors, as well as high power industrial or street lights. The ceramic base and product material selection is based on long life performance by design.
Optogan`s X10 patented design was developed jointly with the Russian Innovation Centre "Skolkovo".
The pilot sample of the X10 was originally introduced in 2011.
“It's great that, thanks to the material and technical base of the Innovation Centre Skolkovo our breakthrough technology does not stagnate in the laboratory, and only after a year goes to the mass market. It is a high contribution for the hi-tech industry,"emphasised Bougrov.
Optogan says its X10 module is a new generation of integrated solutions like LED Chip-on-Board, which are the main focus of technological development of the global LED industry.
At the opening ceremony, Bugrov explained that Optogan strives “to make the transition from a single breakthrough LED, which is already implemented in the technology Chip-on-board, to the integrated lighting system, including the assembly of LEDs on a single substrate, the circuit elements and the power control (driver), as well as the primary optics. Such a breakthrough is possible due to the continuous research, conducted at the Optogan`s research and development centre".
