Seoul Semiconductor Launches Smart Lighting Acrich LED Light Engine
Seoul Semiconductor has released a new LED light engine with Acrich 3 technology. The device combines as LED module with Acrich MJT 5050 series LED, Acrich3 IC technology, and an innovative heat sink and secondary optics.
Acrich is claimed to be the first semiconductor light source that operates directly from both AC and DC power supplies. "˜Acrich MJT - Multi-Junction Technology' is a proprietary family of high-voltage LEDs.The Acrich light engine does not require a complex AC/DC converter and can be operated directly from the AC mains which simplifies designs, reduces component count and improves on the reliability of the luminaire.
The new 30W Acrich engine delivers a typical luminous flux of 3000 lumens at 120VAC operation at 5000K corresponding to a typical efficiency of 100 lumens per watt. When operated in a power compensation mode the Acrich3 technology can adapt to variations in the line-voltage as great as 20 percent and still deliver power-level regulation within 5 percent to ensure uniformity of the light output.
Furthermore, the new Acrich3 solution enables smart lighting control systems the Acrich3 technology can interface through a wide variety of wireless networks such as IEEE 802.15.4, WiFi, and Bluetooth to control dimming, and further optimize on energy savings. This IP67 light engine is available in various color temperatures and beam patterns.
Seoul Semiconductor executive vice president of lighting sales division, Jay Kim said: "The payback period for streetlights can be significantly reduced with this new Acrich light engine. By eliminating AC/DC converters in streetlights, maintenance costs can be lowered and reliability can be improved without compromising on price, quality and energy savings to dramatically improve the lighting experience for customers. This product will enable the market to come up with the next generation of high quality, energy efficient and competitively priced LED lamps.""¨
