Seoul Semiconductor receives UL recognition for Acrich2 modules

South Korean LED maker Seoul Semiconductor Co Ltd says that two of its Acrich2 AC-powered LED modules have been recognized under the Component Recognition Program of UL (Underwriters Laboratories).

The modules, which operate directly from AC line voltages, contain newly developed high-voltage LEDs that use Seoul Semiconductor’s patented Acrich technology as well as a capacitor-free power-conditioning integrated circuit. The firm says that UL recognition will help customers using the Acrich2 to more easily obtain UL listing of their replacement lamps and luminaries. The products also have the cUL Recognition Mark for Canada.

The modules were investigated using the requirements contained in the Standard for Light Emitting Diode (LED) Equipment for Use in Lighting Products, UL 8750, First Edition, dated 1 November 2011. The two modules - the 8W SMJEA3011220 and the 13W SMJEA3012220 (which produce 500lm and 800lm (minimum), respectively, at an operating voltage of 120Vrms - are designed for replacement lamps and other similar applications.

“The Acrich2 modules permit quick time to market for our customers making luminaries and replacement lamps,” claims Brian Wilcox, VP of Seoul Semiconductor, North America. “UL recognition speeds the certification process and helps eliminate some of the potential listing delays,” he adds.

Seoul Semiconductor has recently launched several individual products in the Acrich2 family, available to customers through Seoul Semiconductor’s direct sales force and distributors.
