TE Connectivity Introduces Development Kit for Lumawise Drive LED Holder Type Z50

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced a development kit for its new Lumawise Drive LED Holder Type Z50, enabling luminaire designers to purchase a single unit for desktop testing, product evaluation and luminaire prototyping. Each kit contains an LED holder, a cable assembly and a thermal interface material.

The Lumawise Drive LED holder Type Z50, launched last September, has a built-in low-profile DC/DC driver that brings integrated functionality and flicker-free illumination to the company’s successful range of Zhaga-inspired Z50 LED holders for chip-on-board (COB) LED for spot and track lighting, without any change to outside dimensions.

“Since we launched the Type Z50 LED holder less than six months ago, response from the market has been very encouraging,” says Jonathan Catchpole, systems architect & business development at TE. “At TE we aim to make engineers job’s easier and accelerate the development process for technologists. The new development kit makes it easier for luminaire designers to appreciate its advantages and work out how best to integrate it into their new products.”

Designed for 48 VDC input, the Lumawise Drive LED holder Type Z50 works with a wide range of readily available constant voltage power supplies, making it possible to power multiple fixtures off a single power supply. Designers can also remove driver boxes from spot and track lighting, creating a more aesthetically pleasing and lower-cost solution. Further functionality can be added to the holder with an optional 0-10 V dimmer.

The Lumawise Drive LED Holder Type Z50 provides thermal and electrical connection to four different COB sizes – 16x19 mm, 19x19 mm, 20x24 mm and 24x24 mm – and has four different current outputs: 350, 500, 700, and 1050 mA.
