Bridgelux expands Decor 97-CRI LED array range from 1200-2500lm to 500-5000lm

LED chip and lighting array maker Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA (which claims to be the only vertically integrated manufacturer of LED solid-state light sources specifically for the lighting industry) has expanded its Decor line of ultra-high color rendering index (CRI) LED arrays.

Addressing growing demand in the shop and retail, architectural, hospitality and museum lighting markets, Bridgelux has expanded its Decor 97 CRI product series (launched last October). The Decor series now offers increased efficiency as well as a broader range of light sources — from 500 to 5000 operational lumens (compared with the existing 1200-2500lm) in three color temperatures (2700, 3000 and 3500K) — to satisfy the increasing number of applications demanding high light quality. The Decor series expands lighting options available to the lighting designer, complementing Bridgelux’s standard products with minimum CRIs of 80 and 90, respectively.

Bridgelux says that, with a CRI of 97 and a 3-step MacAdam Ellipse color control option, the latest Decor arrays enable lighting designers to accurately render a full palette of colors over a wide range of light levels to create sophisticated lighting effects. The series has been spectrally engineered to virtually replicate the light quality of halogen and incandescent light sources. The arrays deliver R9 and R15 values of 98, to both enhance reds and more accurately represent many skin tones, delivering clean and natural lighting.

“Bridgelux’s introduction of the higher lumen output Decor arrays will allow us to significantly expand our ARONDO LED luminaire line,” comments David Rice, vice president of BAERO North America Inc. “Designed specifically for supermarket lighting, BAERO’s ARONDO LED fixtures currently offer 10 different light engine options, with three of those options utilizing the high 97 CRI Decor arrays for premium presentation,” he adds. “Fixtures with the Decor option range from 1936 to 3304 lumens while also providing unmatched color. This has allowed BAERO to capture a greater share of applications in supermarket lighting, converting them from conventional lighting technologies to energy efficient solid state lighting. The quality and performance is excellent as is the support we have received from Bridgelux as we developed the ARONDO LED.”

The Decor arrays feature the same form factors as current Bridgelux array products, allowing a simple upgrade path for existing customers while minimizing design efforts.

Bridgelux is exhibiting the latest products in Hall 4.2, stand J31 at the Light+Building 2012 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany (15-20 April).
