Bridgelux To Unveil Advanced Exterior LED Sub-system

The LED based module is designed as a replacement for the high pressure sodium lamp
Bridgelux has unveiled the Outdoor Lighting Module (OLM); a new line of LED sub-systems which integrates optics, environmental protection and the LED source for roadways, parking garages and other outdoor and industrial applications.

OLM will allow manufacturers to rapidly expand their product lines while lowering costs.

Outdoor applications, including roadways, parking lots and flood lighting are some of the fastest growing segments in the industry. According to McKinsey & Company, LED based outdoor lighting solutions are expected to grow from six percent of the market ($10 billion USD) to 74 percent by 2020.

The new Bridgelux OLM Series incorporates a number of key technology advancements and features that will help luminaire manufacturers develop a broad range of differentiated outdoor lighting products with lower total costs, faster time to market, and industry leading energy efficacy.

The Bridgelux OLM Series is a platform that integrates a number of fundamental components for building solid-state luminaires into a single sub-system. OLM reduces product development time by three to six months, eliminating up to $100,000 in R&D expenses. Building solid-state fixtures with OLM can reduce manufacturing time by five to seven days.

When compared to conventional high pressure sodium systems, OLM can reduce the manufacturing cost of outdoor solid state lighting fixtures by 10 to 20 percent, and reduce maintenance costs while lowering power consumption by up to 65 percent.

Further more, OLM has been specifically designed to enable lighting manufacturers to reduce the overall bill of material cost of their luminaires and deliver a best-in-class cost to the market.

OLM's slim profile, impact resistant optics, and broad area lighting capabilities make it a platform for outdoor wall pack and flood light applications. Designed to be compliant with key light pattern standards (IESNA, EN13-201, NEMA), the OLM sub-system also has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 66; making it an ideal solution for harsh outdoor environments.

"Bridgelux continues to push the envelope in LED and SSL technology innovation, developing products that help light manufacturers and designers solve their biggest manufacturing problems and toughest challenges," says Brad Bullington, Bridgelux's chief executive officer. "We are now introducing the industry's most advanced and sophisticated LED sub-system for outdoor applications."

Bridgelux's proprietary integrated symmetric and asymmetric optics enable lighting manufacturers to design luminaires for targeted applications that spread light in more effective and efficient ways. OLM-based fixtures can also be designed into applications with specific lighting pattern requirements such as glare reduction and dark sky.

Bridgelux is initially launching six OLM subsystems ranging in power from 18 to 40 watts and estimated product lifetimes of 50,000 to 100,000 hours. The new OLM sub-system will be commercially available in June 2014 with pre-orders for this new product being accepted now.

Bridgelux will demonstrate the OLM at Light + Building in its booth: Halle 4 Ebene 2 Stand J31. The Light + Building tradeshow is in Frankfurt, Germany which runs from March 30th to April 4th, 2014.

 

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
