Illumination Devices Launches LE-Hx Standard Line of LED Light Engines

Illumination Devices, an established innovator and manufacturer of high performance LED light engine technology, has announced the immediate availability of its new LE-Hx standard range of light engines. The LED technology is designed to facilitate lighting manufacturer’s assembly for a wide range of applications.

•    Direct AC connection - no external power supply required
•    2200 K to 6500K CCT
•    80 CRI minimum
•    Small size reduces fixture cost
•    Triac compatible (dimming)
•    On-board thermal management - prevents overheating
•    Designed to meet Energy Star requirements for certification
•    UL Recognized Component; File No. E362275
•    Conformal coating available

The LE-Hx line is a series of three miniature AC light engines designed to reduce system costs in low level light applications. They are available in various color temperatures, from 2200 K to 6500 K with a minimum 80 CRI, and are dimmable (Triac compatible).

The new light engines are designed to integrate easily into new and existing fixtures in a wide range of general lighting applications. They feature embedded circuitry that provides optimum power to the LEDs while regulating temperature to prevent over-heating to ensure long lifetimes. The light engines connect directly to mains power (110-130 VAC), eliminating external drivers and reducing system costs.

“We have spent the last decade developing custom lighting solutions for many well-known lighting manufacturers. We have learned what works and have innovated to build solutions that solve the most common manufacturing challenges,” said Josh Niebling, president of Illumination Devices. “Our new LE-Hx light engines are already proven in the field. With these light engines, our customers can benefit from years of focused research and development.”

The new LE-Hx line of standard light engines is supported with a 5 year warranty.
