American Bright has introduced a complete family of direct linear AC LED modules that allow for rapid product development and standards compliance while dramatically reducing bill of materials cost for the most common linear lighting applications.
Chino, California November 10, 2015 – American Bright Optoelectronics Corp. today released the Ingeni-AC family of linear form factor direct AC LED modules that eliminate the need for costly external AC to DC conversion and both speeds total development time while radically reducing total fixture cost. The family of light engines employs American Bright’s patented SimpleDrive® technology that eliminates the need for capacitors, resistors and advanced magnetics while allowing users to connect modules directly to 120VAC, US mains, line voltages. The entire series features UL 5VA lenses that allow for quick and easy passage of UL 1598.
The Ingeni-AC family provides dedicated, application specific solutions, for both the commercial and residential lighting industries. Linear form factors are available in lumen packages ranging from 900 to 1500 lumens per foot in all industry standard ANSI color bins. Linear modules are capable of producing over 1500 lumens per foot replacing all existing linear halogen, xenon, neon and fluorescent legacy light sources typically available to today’s designers. Options for up to 90CRI are standard, allowing for both compliance with Title 24 as well as opening up high color rendering opportunities for lighting manufactures servicing architectural markets that rely on a higher level of color consistency.
Third party independent testing (LM80) confirms the new family of light engines will exceed the minimum life and stability requirements set forth by both Energy Star and the Design Lights Consortium (DLC) while maintaining Title 24 compliance with 90 CRI and full range dimming capabilities. The entire family of light engines has a THDi of less than 15% and power factor >0.90 in all instances.
Ingeni-AC light engines are readily available in standards compliant ANSI color bins from warm white (2700K CCT) to cool white (6500K CCT) color temperatures. A high CRI of greater than 90 is available in all lighting class color temperatures. The inherent efficiency of an AC-direct design allows for a high power factor greater than 0.9 with no additional power conditioning or power factor correction circuitry required. An additional benefit of the innovative configuration is the full range dimmability. Compatibility with many Lutron and Leviton dimmers has been confirmed through independent testing. The simple plug and play nature of the American Bright solution reduces development time, assembly costs and still maintains the robust and reliable features of a solid-state lighting product.
For a complete demonstration and technical details please stop by booth 407 during the LED Show at Strategies in Light at the Santa Clara Convention Center March 1-3, 2016 where a dedicated team of sales engineers will be on hand to answer any questions and provide technical documentation product selection assistance.
“We continue to build on the success of our industry leading direct AC products and now have a module solution for just about every lighting application,” George Lee, President of American Bright Optoelectronics Corp., noted. “
The direct AC nature of our modules allow for a simple, cost effective means of producing LED versions of the most commonly used fixtures,” Lee added. “The low solutions cost and reliability our modules provide, removes any remaining barriers to LED conversions for most fixture manufacturers,” he concluded.
