Bridgelux Introduces Zhaga Compliant Cetero Spot Light Module

Bridgelux Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies and solutions, today announced the introduction of the Bridgelux® Cetero™ Spot Light Module (SLM) a compact high flux density light source delivering clean and consistent white light without pixilation and engineered to comply with the upcoming Zhaga spot light module specification. The Cetero SLM will offer light output ranging from 800 to 2300 lumens across multiple color temperatures all in one common form factor. Its mechanical compatibility with the upcoming Zhaga interface specifications will ensure interchangeability and a modular product platform that will expand luminaire design options for our customers.

Bridgelux is an active member of Zhaga, an industry-wide cooperation aimed at the development of standard specifications for the interfaces of LED light engines. With more than 180 members from the lighting industry, Zhaga is a global consortium aimed at ensuring interchangeability of LED light sources from different manufacturers. Adherence to this design specification allows for design flexibility and a future proof upgrade path for both OEM customers and end users, addressing market concerns regarding the rapid evolution of LED technology and delivering on the promise of sustainability.

Bridgelux remains committed to providing customers with leading-edge LED technology in a package that simplifies their design efforts and reduces product development risks and costs,” said Jason Posselt, vice president for channel marketing at Bridgelux.  “We believe that working with Zhaga to help develop common standards will help pave the way for accelerated adoption of solid state lighting technology. The Cetero, with its simple bolt down installation and wire connection features, combines the high quality of light benefits delivered by Bridgelux LED arrays with a simple to install standardized interface to help speed time-to-market.”

The Cetero modules will be available in 2700, 3000, 3500 and 4000 color temperature options—all providing a minimum 80 CRI and 3 SDCM color consistency and leveraging the production proven Bridgelux ES product family.  Three lumen categories will be initially available, delivering operational lumens of 800, 1100, and 2000 lumens all in a common light emitting source area to enable compatibility with secondary optics. The Cetero SLM will be commercially available in late 2012.
