Bridgelux® Now Shipping LED Arrays with 130+ lm/W Warm White Efficacy

Bridgelux, a leading developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies, is now shipping its Vero® and V Series™ LED array products with high performing warm white efficacy of 130 lumens per watt (lm/W) and greater. This enhanced performance delivers up to 10% additional energy savings over previous generations. Further, the company has achieved a record warm white efficacy of greater than 160 lm/W on its existing chip on board platforms. With these efficacy gains, Bridgelux continues its tradition of breakthrough LED chip and packaging technology innovation and helps further accelerate the adoption of solid-state lighting.

LED arrays with an efficacy of 130lm/W not only provide a significant return on investment to end customers, but also help OEMs and manufacturers better compete with product offerings that design in state of the art LED based products. The featured 130 lm/W efficacy is now a standard across all Bridgelux Vero and V Series product form factors (3000K, 80 CRI nominal current). Bridgelux Vero arrays provide designers with a best-in-class light source design, a wide range of premium color options, easy integration and installation, reduced manufacturing costs and the industry’s best product warranty for LED light source products. Bridgelux V Series arrays leverage the technology and performance of the Vero products in smaller, cost effective packages.

“Our team is committed to programs that improve LED package efficiencies, while maintaining the dazzling high-level of Bridgelux color and uniformity that our customers have come to rely upon,” said Aaron Merrill, Director of Product Marketing at Bridgelux. “With advancements in phosphor and die technology we’re already achieving efficacies on our current platform that position Bridgelux to push our efficacy leadership well into the future.”
