Edison Opto Unveils Direct-Lit Light Bar for Lighting and Backlight Applications

The Taiwan-based high power LED manufacturer, Edison Opto, has recently branched out into backlight market and released a direct-lit backlight / lighting module. Using the high efficacy component - ET-3528 as light source with secondary optical lens, the emitting angle of light bar can be widened up to 150°which expands the illumination range. In addition, thanks to the excellent light uniformity, naked eyes can’t see the light source even when the light bar is mounted in an ultra-thin light box. The direct-lit light bar is suitable as the light sources of panel lights, TV backlight, advertising light box and refrigerated display case.

LED Quantity:    7 pcs/light bar
Dimension:        520 mm x 17 mm x 1 mm
Power:               7 W
Brightness:         700 lm / 670lm / 640lm
CCT:                  6000 K/4000K/3000K
CRI:                   80
Efficacy:            100 lm/W

Compared with the side-lit LED TVs which require light guide plates, direct-lit LED TVs do not need such components. Moreover, LED efficacy has been increasing so that the quantity of LEDs per TV can be reduced. Edison Opto’s direct-lit light bar has the advantages of high lm/$ and cost saving which are superior to side-lit LED module.

Direct-lit light bar applied in advertising light box and panel light can save (up to) 30% power consumption. Whether as a lighting application or backlight, the direct-lit light bar can help luminaires and TVs to become lighter and thinner. The light bar is a versatile, efficient and energy saving solution for lighting and backlight.
