American Bright LED® Launches Intelligent LED Modules

American Bright LED is introducing two LED modules at Strategies in Lighting 2014: EzyLED™, a new line of LED module with a driver IC integrated for current control and is designed to be used in any 24V system, and GoldenEye™, an AC LED module that allows LEDs to be driven from direct 120 VAC without using any capacitors, coils or resistors.

“We launched these prototypes at LightFair 2013 and had tremendous interest in them,” said George Lee, president and CEO, American Bright LED. “Since then, our engineers have completed rigorous testing, obtained UL rating, and ensured the modules meet industry standards,” Lee continued.

EzyLED:
Using state-of-the-art high voltage LED technology with built-in IC, EzyLED is easily adopted into scalable or modular lighting applications. It manages the load and provides constant current to the packages when set-up in parallel.

EzyLED features:
•    24V direct input with integrated IC for current management
•    Available in 5050, 5630 and K2 packages for various lighting applications
•    Lowers component failure rate and BOM cost
•    Improves system efficacy and robustness

GoldenEye:
While compact in size – a little smaller than a US quarter – GoldenEye packs 10W of lighting power and offers uniformity, efficiency and configurability* in an all-solid-state, dimmable** package. Using direct 120V AC power input means that no external power supply or ballast are needed.

Unlike other industry LED modules, GoldenEye does NOT require soldering to connect to the AC line voltage. The module simply plugs in with wires, maximizes efficiency, reduces part count and design complexity, improves reliability, and lessens costs, a winning combination for manufacturers.

GoldenEye Features:
•    High power LED module with Patented SimpleDrive™ technology
•    Direct AC connection for easy adoption
•    High lumen efficacy and CRI
•    Advanced Chip-on-Board design

* wattage reconfigurable from 4W to 12 W with same high efficacy; ** with electronic (trailing edge)

Dimmer Testing:
The modules have been tested for flickering index and dimming compatibility per Energy Star™ criteria, and IES LM82-13 for electrical and photometric performance in various ambient temperatures. Additionally, the luminous flux and CCT hold well after 2000 hours under both 25C room temperature and an elevated 45C environment. The lifetime test is ongoing and luminaire manufacturers will be provided with at least 6000 hours test data to use for design/warranty reference, and applications for Energy Star or Designlights Consortium.
