Arrow Electronics Launches Online Lighting Design Tools to Simplify LED Design and Transition to Solid-State Lighting

Arrow Electronics has announced an application platform that enables engineers to design complete LED lighting solutions in a convenient online environment. The Arrow Lighting Designer offers tools and solutions tailored to customers’ applications, with built-in design guidelines providing quick results.

The Lighting Designer platform combines multiple tools for selecting and optimizing LED solutions, adding secondary optics, defining the power supply and selecting and laying out a design. Each tool can be used independently to design and analyze individual components, or in tandem to develop a comprehensive solution. In addition to valuable LED product and system data, the tool offers several LED system options, such as the “recommended,” “highest efficacy” and “least expensive” solutions. After selecting an option, users can see suggested alternatives and return on investment for transitioning from traditional lighting. A unique sharing feature enables users to collaborate with peers and Arrow field application engineers.

“The Arrow Lighting Designer enables engineers to design complete LED lighting solutions in a single, user-friendly environment,” said Stephane Rosa, lighting director, Arrow EMEA. “This web tool enables users to obtain a quick mock-up of the elements that will constitute their final lighting product, by removing trivial calculations and time-consuming datasheet browsing. Users can download their designs in PDF, save their designs for review later, and also collaborate with peers and Arrow field application engineers by sharing their designs.”
