TE's Lumawise Drive LED Holder Type Z50 Solves a Common LED Driver Problem

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduces 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 DC/DC driver and the holder into a single package that enables lighting designers to develop compact, better-looking and more cost-effective lighting products.

Applications
•    Track Lighting
•    Spot Lighting
•    Downlights

Benefits

•    Driver on Board solution for elegant luminaire design
•    Designed to meet the requirements of Zhaga book 12
•    Provide thermal and electrical connection to four different CoB sizes: 16x19 mm, 19x19 mm, 20x24 mm and 24x24 mm
•    Achieve design flexibility with an LED holder available with four different current outputs
•    Obtain added functionality with 0-10 V dimming versions available

TE’s Lumawise drive LED Holder Type Z50 integrates a 48 VDC powered constant-current LED driver into the same form factor as TE’s popular 5 0mm diameter Zhaga-inspired range of Lumawise LED holders for COB LEDs. Until recently, most LED drivers have been housed in separate boxes, often larger than the light fixture 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, providing a more cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing solution.

TE is unveiling several versions of the Lumawise LED Holder Type Z50, starting with an on/off model and a 0-10 V (sink and source) dimmable type. Both configurations are available in 350 mA, 500 mA, 700 mA and 1050 mA versions and a typical forward voltage of 36 VDC. Each of these drive currents work with common COB sizes of 16x19 mm, 19x19 mm, 20x24 mm and 24x24 mm, making this LED holder suitable for use with over 70 different types of COBs offered by LED manufacturers. The Lumawise drive LED Holder Type Z50 can be powered by any 48 V power supply and will dim down to 3 percent output current with less than 5 percent flicker.
