New BJB LED Connector for Linear LED Modules: Book 21 Compliant

New BJB LED Connector for Linear LED Modules: Book 21 Compliant

Lampholders were standard in older, traditional lighting systems. Modern LED fixtures that utilize non-replaceable LEDs create several assembly and field-replacement disadvantages. Zhaga Book 21 addresses these shortcomings by standardizing linear 'socketable' LED modules. In accordance with Book 21, BJB has developed the new LED connector 47.303; a two-part fixing and electrical connection system, which enables LED modules to be installed and subsequently replaced as easily as conventional light sources. Incorporating the BJB 47.303 series results in reduced assembly costs and dramatically faster retrofit or replacement times.

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED

There is always a conflict between CRI and luminous efficacy. As widely understood, a promising color rendition which means a relatively full-spectrum is negative for luminous efficacy because the enhanced long-wavelength spectrum does not help with increasing the luminous flux which is at peak 555 nm sensitivity. The release of the 3rd generation of 2835M and 4th generation of 3030 LEDs aims to provide a balanced solution and improve the efficiency without sacrificing color rendition.
