Plessey extends beam-forming Orion LED module family

UK-based lighting and sensing product and component maker Plessey has extended its range of ultra-slim Orion LED modules based on its Stellar beam forming technology, with new beam angles opening the technology to a wider range of applications in industrial and architectural lighting design. Plessey is showcasing the new modules in booth M8 at LuxLive event in London, UK (23-24 November).

The Orion LED beam-forming modules deliver a compact 3000 lumen beam from a module that can be as little as 5.6mm thick (less than one-tenth the thickness of standard alternatives). The recently launched PLWS3000 25° FWHM (full width half maximum) beam-angle module has now been joined by modules with 15° and 50° beam angles. All modules in the family share a common 82mm diameter, allowing lighting designers to simply substitute modules to create a family of compact luminaires suitable for a wide range of lighting applications.

At the same time, Plessey has announced plans to release Orion-Mini, a new 45mm-diameter version offering a 10° sub-1000lm beam in Spring 2017. The Orion-Mini will share the slim profile of the full-size module, but will be offered in a format suitable for design into small-form-factor downlights, spotlights and architectural lights as a replacement for GU10, MR16 and similar lights.

With its slim line form, range of colour temperatures and improved thermal characteristics, Orion modules are designed to be used in a variety of directional lighting applications such as retail, track and architectural. Integrating the latest LED technology in conjunction with its Stellar beam-forming technology to provide an efficient, slim-line module provides a new design freedom not accessible with alternative chip-on-board (COB)-style modules, it is claimed. The thermal characteristics allow the heat-sink and hence the overall luminaire to be reduced in size.

"Plessey now offers Orion modules in a range of formats offering designers greater freedom," says Paul Drosihn, head of Modular Products. "Orion modules are revolutionizing the lighting market, giving scope for a radical rethinking of the way in which lighting from industrial high-bay to architectural luminaires is designed," he claims. "The Orion family with Stellar beam-forming technology provides an innovative approach to directional lighting applications, opening new opportunities for creativity in industrial and architectural design."

The Orion family is offered in three colour temperatures: warm white, neutral white and cool white. The modules have a luminous efficiency of more than 100 lumens/Watt, feature improved light uniformity and thermal performance.
