Plessey announces new LED beam control modules
Plessey will be releasing a new LED beam control module at the Light and Building event from 13-18 March 2016 at the Fair and Exhibition Centre in Frankfurt, Germany. Called Stellar, the new GaN-on-silicon LED solution combines Plessey's MaGIC surface-emitting LEDs with modular optics.
"As part of our chip scale optics development we have developed a variety of solutions for beam control off the LED chip. This is an exciting development for LED modules and lighting designers. Getting light to where you need it is critical in industrial, retail, hospitality and outdoor lighting," said Keith Strickland, Plessey's CTO.
He added: "Stellar provides lighting designers with the design freedom needed for lightweight, low profile, less bulky designs. As this is our first year exhibiting our LED and lighting solutions at Light and Building, we are very excited about releasing some of our newest developments using our GaN-on-silicon technology. We will be sharing with the leading lighting companies some lighting ideas that take advantage of our technology, including those related to on-chip beam forming."
Giuliano Cassataro, Plessey's LED sales director, said: "With the release of Stellar, we have demonstrated that we have the technology and supply chain to provide mass customisation of lighting solutions for manufacturers in all segments of the lighting market.
"Stellar will permit lighting designers to improve the reliability and quality of light using our state-of-the-art LED light engine for most applications. We are thrilled that we will be showcasing this integration of solid state lighting solutions at Light and Building 2016 and look forward to meeting leading lighting designers at the show."
