TE Connectivity Unveils LUMAWISE Drive LED Holder

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is unveiling the LUMAWISE Drive LED holder Type Z50 for chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. The new LUMAWISE Drive LED holder Type Z50, used in track and spot lighting, integrates the holder and driver into a single package that offers lighting designers the possibility to develop compact, better-looking and more cost-effective lighting products.

LUMAWISE Drive LED Holder Type Z50

TE’s LUMAWISE Drive LED holder Type Z50 is well-suited for track and spot lighting because it integrates a 48VDC powered constant-current LED driver into the same form factor as TE’s popular 50mm diameter Zhaga-compliant range of LUMAWISE LED holders for COB LEDs. Until recently, most LED drivers have been housed in separate boxes, often larger than the lamp itself, mounted to the side of the luminaire and remote to the COB light source. This configuration required wiring between the light source and driver, creating design and manufacturing complexity for the designer. TE’s new holder reduces that complexity and allows more flexibility for lighting design.

TE is working on several versions of the LUMAWISE Drive LED holder – a simple on/off model, a 0-10V dimmable type, and a version with Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) dimming. All three configurations are planned in 350mA, 500mA, 700mA and 1050mA versions at 36VDC outputs. Each of these drive currents will work with common COB sizes of 16x19mm, 19x19mm, 20x24mm and 24x24mm making the LUMAWISE Drive LED holder suitable for use with a broad range of COBs offered by LED manufacturers.
