GT BiomeScilt Presents Airglow One, the First Generation of Driverless LED Light Modules

With the introduction of Airglow One, the Bremen-based company GT BiomeScilt managed its successful breakthrough in the development of energy-efficient LED light modules. Now for the first time, no additional driver is needed to operate the compact, patented LED modules in the Airglow One series. This results in the greatest possible design scope in the production and design of luminaires, together with clearly reduced costs. "Luminaire manufacturers will benefit greatly from this driverless LED technology", says Martin Hockemeyer, Managing Director of GT BiomeScilt and Managing Partner of the partner company, the Gebrüder Thiele Group. "Without the driver as an additional component, they will now be able to design lighting systems with greater efficiency and at lower costs than manufacturers still using conventional LED modules."

High-powered, environment-friendly solutions for shop lighting, industrial luminaires and public areas:
The energy-efficient, top quality light produced by the Airglow One LED modules means that they are simply perfect for lighting systems in public buildings, such as theatres, museums and cinemas, high-class retail complexes, outdoor areas, office buildings and commercial and industrial areas. The long service life also makes them ideal particularly in high-maintenance applications, such as street lights. Since January 2012, the high-powered modules have been available initially in two colour temperature ranges with luminous fluxes of 1500, 2500 and 3500 lumen. Other product attributes include a CRI value of at least 80 and a high average service life 50,000 hours.

Future-proof platform for luminaire manufacturers:
The driverless Airglow One LED modules are compatible with heat sinks and reflectors made by well-known manufacturers, and need very little maintenance by managing without a driver. "To start with, we will be focusing initially on our key markets in Europe and the USA, in order to avoid any bottlenecks", says Hockemeyer, who is planning to expand production capacities step by step.
