Bridgelux LED arrays light retail stores

LED chip and lighting array maker Bridgelux Inc of Livermore, CA, USA says that nearly 2000 LED-based luminaires, developed for Future Group using Bridgelux ES and RS LED arrays, have been installed in two new retail stores opening in India. According to the firm, the use of LED-based technology, instead of metal halide lighting, in the stores is estimated to save 318,000 KwH per year or about 2.5 million Rupees (US$38,000) in power costs.

“The product design and lighting concept developed using Bridgelux’s LED technology was a perfect match for our retail environment. Our retail lighting requirements are very demanding. But we were sold by a combination of mock-up demonstrations and an understanding of the benefits that could be achieved with this innovative technology. We were convinced that we could enhance the quality of lighting to improve the customer experience while simultaneously reducing our operational costs,” said Sunil Biyani, director, Future Group.

“We selected Bridgelux LED arrays to use in our new luminaires because the Bridgelux technology gave us superior performance, in terms of lumen output, consistency, and light quality when compared to other LED light sources,” said R. Hari, chief innovation officer, Asian Retail Lighting Ltd. “We decided that LED arrays or chip-on-board (COB) light sources were the right technology to provide the best quality of light to attract more customers into the stores. Arrays also gave us the design flexibility to create a broad range of new luminaires optimized to display the merchandise with the greatest appeal to the customer.”

The new stores use a combination of downlights, wall washers and track lights all designed by Asian Retail Lighting and using Bridgelux LED arrays.
