Luminus launches LED light engine with embedded drive electronics and IP65 rating

In booth 2945 at the Lightfair International trade show in Las Vegas this week (9-11 May), Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for illumination applications, has announced the availability of its new MD10 light engine.

The fully contained single-chip, high-lumen-density source is easy to integrate, claims Luminus. Designed for a variety of indoor and outdoor lighting applications, the MD10 is available in 800 and 1100 lumen output levels and color temperatures of 3000K and 4000K. For spot lighting applications, the MD10 can deliver more than 17,000 candelas into a narrow 9 degree spot beam angle. Other beam angles are medium, flood, wide flood and elliptical. Electrical inputs to the light engine include 24VDC power and 0-10V dimming. Additionally, the light engine uses on-board smart controls for thermal protection to ensure long life and reliability.

“The MD10 substantially reduces the engineering design cycle for our OEM customers, and enables them to accelerate time to market for their newly developed LED lighting fixtures,” claims Chuck DeMilo, global director of product marketing. “The MD10 provides our customers all the benefits of Luminus’ ‘Big Chip’ LED technology in a plug and play solution,” he adds.

With an Ingress Protection rating of 65 (IP65), the light engine can be designed into outdoor fixtures such as landscape, architectural and area lighting. Typical indoor applications include high-intensity retail display spot and accent lighting. Patent-pending optics within the light engine, in conjunction with Luminus’ LED technology, deliver the performance of a 50W halogen lamp for high-intensity spot lighting and applications where long-throw optical systems are required.
