Bridgelux launches Zhaga-compliant Cetero spot-light module

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 launched the Cetero spot-light module (SLM), a compact high-flux-density light source delivering consistent white light without pixilation and engineered to comply with the upcoming Zhaga spot-light module specification.

The Cetero SLM will offer light output ranging from 800 to 2300 lumens across multiple color temperatures, all in one common form factor. Mechanical compatibility with the upcoming Zhaga interface specifications ensures interchangeability and a modular product platform that will expand luminaire design options for users, the firm notes.

Bridgelux is an active member of Zhaga, an industry-wide cooperation aimed at the development of standard specifications for the interfaces of LED light engines. With more than 180 members from the lighting industry, Zhaga is a global consortium aimed at ensuring interchangeability of LED light sources from different manufacturers. Adherence to this design specification allows for design flexibility and a future-proof upgrade path for both OEM customers and end users, claims Bridgelux, addressing market concerns regarding the rapid evolution of LED technology and delivering on the promise of sustainability.

“Bridgelux remains committed to providing customers with leading-edge LED technology in a package that simplifies their design efforts and reduces product development risks and costs,” says Jason Posselt, VP for channel marketing. “Working with Zhaga to help develop common standards will help pave the way for accelerated adoption of solid-state lighting technology,” he believes. “The Cetero, with its simple bolt-down installation and wire connection features, combines the high quality of light benefits delivered by Bridgelux LED arrays with a simple-to-install standardized interface to help speed time-to-market.”

The Cetero modules will be available in 2700, 3000, 3500 and 4000 color temperature options — all providing a minimum color rendering index (CRI) of 80 and color consistency of 3 SDCM (standard deviation of color matching), and leveraging the production-proven Bridgelux ES product family. Initially, three lumen categories will be available, delivering 800, 1100, and 2000 operational lumens, all in a common light-emitting source area to enable compatibility with secondary optics. The Cetero SLM will be commercially available in late 2012.

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