SSC's New Acrich Optimized for Outdoor Area Lighting

Seoul Semiconductor, a global leader in LED technology, has announced the release of a new generation of Acrich MJT 5050 LEDs, with high lumen output, reliability, and cost performance optimized for the outdoor lighting market.

This new Acrich series has dimensions of 5.0mm × 5.0mm, delivering a typical luminous flux of 180 lumens at 20mA, 64V, 25°C, 5000K and can be driven to a maximum current of 60mA delivering upto 440lm.

The new Acrich series delivers an unprecedented combination of high lumen output, efficacy, outstanding reliability and lm/$ all in one package. This high performance package results in designs where fewer LEDs are used, which leads to smaller and lighter fixtures enabling cost savings on a system level. This Acrich series delivers high performance without sacrificing on reliability or cost. It is an ideal LED for the outdoor lighting market where high efficacy and lifetime are critical.

Utilizing Seoul Semiconductor's proven and reliable high voltage architecture, Acrich MJT "Multi-Junction chip Technology", the Acrich LED eliminates the tradeoff between size and efficacy. Designers can take advantage of the high efficiency of high-voltage DC drivers or eliminate the driver by driving the LEDs directly of AC using the Acrich IC.

Seoul Semiconductor Executive Vice President of Lighting sales division, Jay Kim has stated that, "In addition to high efficacy and reliability the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is an important metric for the street and area lighting market. This product will enable the market to come up with the next generation of high quality, efficient and competitively priced LED retrofit lamps. "He added “The payback period especially for streetlights can be significantly reduced with new Acrich LED without compromising on reliability or efficiency. In the future, Seoul Semiconductor will introduce more products to penetrate the outdoor area lighting market.
