American Bright Optoelectronics Introduces Complete Family of Innovative LED AC Solutions

American Bright has introduced a complete family of direct AC LED modules that allow for rapid product development and standards compliance while dramatically reducing bill of materials cost for the most common industry applications. The next generation of AC compatible LED solutions eliminate the need for costly external AC to DC conversion. The family of light engines employs American Bright’s patented SimpleDrive® technology that eliminates the need for capacitors, resistors and advanced magnetics while allowing users to connect modules directly to 120VAC, US mains, line voltages.

The complete family provides dedicated, application specific solutions, for both the commercial and residential lighting industries. Modules in both round and linear form factors are available in lumen packages ranging from a low of 300 lumens for task and accent lighting to a high of over 3000 lumens for traditional down lighting applications. Linear modules are capable of producing over 1000 lumens per foot replacing most existing light sources typically available to today’s designers. Both form factors (round and linear) are available in Zhaga compliant interfaces for fixture manufactures who have already designed around this standard for easy retrofit or replacement of existing light engine modules.

Third party independent testing (LM80) confirms the new family of light engines will exceed the minimum life and stability requirements set forth by both Energy Star and the Design Lights Consortium (DLC) while maintaining Title 24 compliance with 90 CRI and full range dimming capabilities.

The family of AC light engines is readily available in standards compliant ANSI color bins from warm white (2700K CCT) to bright white (5000 K CCT) color temperatures. A high CRI of greater than 90 is available in all lighting class color temperatures. The inherent efficiency of an AC-direct design allows for a high power factor greater than 0.9 with no additional power conditioning or power factor correction circuitry required. An additional benefit of the AC SimpleDrive configuration is the full range dimmability. Compatibility with many Lutron and Leviton dimmers has been confirmed through independent testing. The simple plug and play nature of the American Bright solution reduces development time, assembly costs and still maintains the robust and reliable features of a solid-state lighting product.

“We have built on the success of our original GoldenEye LED products (Update: Name has changed to Ingeni-ACTM in 2016) and now have a module solution for just about every lighting application,” George Lee, President of American Bright Optoelectronics Corp., noted. “The direct AC nature of our modules allows for a simple, cost effective means of producing LED versions of the most commonly used fixtures,” Lee added. “The low solutions cost and reliability our modules provide, removes any remaining barriers to LED conversions for most fixture manufacturers,” he concluded.
