Bridgelux launches V Series chip-on-board LED arrays for sub-1000lm commercial and residential lighting

Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA has launched its new V Series line of chip-on-board LED array products. The cost-effective light engines extend the technology and performance of the Vero line, feature high flux density in small source size packages, and are suited to sub-1000 lumen commercial and residential lighting markets where tight beam control and high quality light matter, says the firm.

The V Series LED arrays were developed to bring Bridgelux light source technology to a growing segment of sub-1000 lumen applications such as PAR lamps, MR-16 lamps, small-aperture down lights, landscape spots and security lights, track lights, spots, and accent lights. According to Strategies Unlimited, the global LED PAR Replacement Lamp market alone is expected to grow from 13 million units in 2011 to 47 million units in 2016.

The V Series LED arrays initially consist of two light engine sizes (V6 andV8) with multiple electrical configurations, correlated color temperatures (CCT) and color rendering index (CRI) combinations, enabling greater design-in flexibility and energy efficiencies. The light engines can be efficiently driven at twice the nominal current, which translates into enhanced system flexibility and industry-leading lumen-per-dollar performance, claims Bridgelux. In addition, the V Series LED arrays are supported by a variety of existing and new low-cost mechanical holders, optics and drivers from a variety of established ecosystem partners, reducing overall sourcing and installation costs for lower lumen applications while getting the benefit of high-performance Bridgelux light source technology.

“We have been quick to qualify V Series arrays into several high-volume product lines, so many of our clients can immediately benefit from the light quality and energy efficiencies realized with these light sources,” comments Jack Lam, president of Hong Kong-based luminaire manufacturer RiO Light.

The V Series arrays have been optimized to enable a cost-effective design for LED lamps, commercial track and spotlights, consumer down-lights and other general lighting applications. They feature low thermal resistance and an electrically isolated thermal path for simplified thermal management. They also support Energy Star and various rebate programs with more than 7000 hours of LM80 test data and R9 values that exceed California Energy Commission requirements for luminaires and lamps. The V Series arrays also include ANSI-compliant 3-step binning, reducing SKUs (stock keeping units) while bringing consistent high-quality white point light to this new segment. Like all Bridgelux array products, the V Series comes with a 5-year limited warranty.

“We leveraged many technological advances from our industry-leading Vero LED Array Series to bring our high-quality light engine technology to the V Series for lower-power, cost-sensitive applications,” says chief sales & marketing officer Max Hong. “These small LED packages are well suited for low-lumen applications and will help accelerate the migration from traditional light sources (such as incandescent and halogen) to cleaner, more efficient solid-state lighting.”
