Tyco Electronics Introduces the All New NEVALO SSL System

The future of lighting is called SSL. Solid State Lighting is expected to grow to more than half of all residential and commercial fixtures in the next few years. Tackling new designs and converting your existing luminaires and fixtures to SSL requires new technology and new expertise. The NEVALO SSL System is designed to facilitate the transition from traditional light sources to new electronic LED lighting fixtures.

The new NEVALO SSL System from Tyco Electronics is designed to move luminaire manufacturers into this new world quickly, efficiently and reliably. This highly-engineered state-of-the-art, plug-and-play system relieves you of the electronic and thermal engineering tasks so you can focus your resources on what you do best.

Instead of a lamp socket (and possibly a ballast), the SSL fixture can include power conversion and control electronics, the light source and optics, interconnections and heat dissipation. The NEVALO Solid State Lighting System from Tyco Electronics combines all of these functions into an integrated, plug-and-play solution. This Design Orbit describes each of the essential elements.

The NEVALO SSL System components are designed to meet both requirements. LED Light Modules (LLM) are offered in rectangular and circular configurations with multiple LED configurations. Drivers, cables, and connectors are designed with flexibility in mind. Heat sinks are offered to match every LLM. For circular systems, sockets and optics complete the job.

The SSL system budget simplifies fixture design and decreases opportunities for errors. Color coding confirms that the right subassemblies have been chosen. As you build your system, you simply check that the color codes match and that the total LLM budget is within the specific driver’s range.

the NEVALO configurator allows to easily incorporate innovative lighting components into a customized system. Backed by Tyco Electronics’ engineering expertise and available five-year warranty, the NEVALO configurator guides users to create an efficient solution, build a bill of materials and submit a project for a quote.

With "Thermal Monitor", an evaluation tool is provided to confirm the thermal performance of every LLM in your fixture design. The evaluation tool includes PC software plus a thermal test board that matches the production version of the LLM.

SSL designer kits are available by application type : downlight, wall mount and track, and additional NEVALO system components for various lumen outputs. Each kit includes drivers, LLMs, heat sinks, wiring systems and technical product information which assists in the creation and validation of a designer’s luminaire design concept.
