The Advent of the World's Thinnest LED Fixture

Guangdong Cnlight Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. (Cnlight) announced its new planar illumination products during 2011 Hong Kong International Lighting Fair. The Cnlight high-end ultra-slim LED table lamp features a 3.73mm ultra-slim illuminator and high performance, excellent uniformity and good quality of light. The new LED lighting design is enabled by Oree’s LightCellTM technology. Oree is an Israel-based company that is the pioneer of LED planar light sources. Cnlight’s collaboration with Oree’s innovative technology opens the door to a completely new category for LED illumination: “Planar LED Lighting.”

The Cnlight new LED fixtures contain a light source that combines optical and semiconductor technology in a high-tech planar lighting design. The fixture body is made with an aluminum-based alloy, with a flexible arm that is able to move to the appropriate positions smoothly. The central axis is able to rotate the fixture easily to light around the room. The fixture is designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. The high-quality lighting output meets customers’ diverse needs.

According to Cnlight technical leader, this product is a technology breakthrough because of performance, fixture thickness, and balance of the two factors. The Oree LightCell technology enables ultra-thin form factor and high-efficiency illumination in the Cnlight fixture, setting a new standard for the global lighting industry. The slim form factor aesthetic and user-friendly design enrich not just the visual experience but also the living style.

The LightCell is a new planar LED light source technology developed by Oree, which is backed by over 30 plus patents in advanced optics, semiconductors and lighting technologies. The LightCell is an ultra-thin system-ready package that enables completely different designs than other well-known conventional LED light sources. It emits uniform color and brightness from its lighting surface and combines the light from individual LED dies, redirecting their radiation through a flat light guide for an efficient and uniform planar emitting pattern. The White LightCellTM efficacy today achieves 80lm/W while providing a high color-rendering index (CRI) 90 -95 for true color reproduction.

The new Cnlight series of lighting products is not just a business achievement to itself, but also the contribution from a national brand to the Chinese nationwide consumers and the lighting industry.

Cnlight, the Chinese lighting technology pioneer and leader, has proven again its strength and core competencies. The company will demonstrate its product at the Hong Kong LightFair, which is highly-regarded internationally. This further promotes Cnlight as the national top tier brand with an unprecedented reputation, says Chairman Guosheng Chai.

Cnlight Chairman Guosheng Chai also indicates the solid technology foundation is the core competency of Cnlight. The company continues to invest in high-end LED Lighting R & D, technologies and applications as well as the production process to ensure total quality excellence. In addition to being a technology leader, Cnlight has also made great efforts to establish a sales channel and marketing. They are working hard to build the best lighting corporation in China and the world.
