New Bridgelux Pre-Wired LED Arrays Further Simplify Design Integration

Bridgelux Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies and solutions, is further simplifying the LED light source integration process for luminaire manufacturers with the introduction of new wiring options for its rectangular ES and RS Array Series solid state light sources. This option further enhances the plug and play simplicity delivered by these arrays, helping to facilitate quick design cycles and ease system-level integration challenges for Bridgelux customers.

The new wiring option provides two wires soldered to the electrical contact pads on the LED arrays.  This wiring option may be ordered with all Bridgelux rectangular ES and RS Array Series, which deliver between 800 to 4500 operational lumens in all available color temperatures.  Providing pre-wired arrays simplifies the electrical integration of the light source into the lamp or luminaire, enabling Bridgelux customers to use interconnection methods common to the lighting industry and avoid introducing soldering processes in their factories.

“Our primary focus at Bridgelux is to make LED technology easy to use for our general lighting customers,” said Mick Wilcox, Bridgelux product manager.  “Providing this wiring option eliminates manufacturing process steps and reduces product development risks and overall system costs.  Our customers can bring new energy-efficient, high quality lighting products to market faster to meet the rapidly increasing market demand for solid state lighting.”
