Plessey launches beam-forming LED module using Stellar optical technology

UK-based LED maker Plessey has announced the first standard LED module based on its Stellar beam-forming technology. The new standard module is said to open up opportunities for creativity in industrial and architectural lighting design.

Plessey's Orion PLWS3000 series is an LED array module delivering more than 3000 lumens, integrating LED and optics into a module just 5.6mm thick and 82mm in diameter. Alternative solutions typically require optics that are usually 100mm deep and 111mm in diameter for a comparable light output and beam. Plessey says that it has achieved this size and performance by combining its Stellar beam-forming optics and gallium nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) LED technology. Plessey expects applications of the module to be in the design of track, retail, architectural, high-intensity, spot and directional lighting, and especially architectural applications.

The reduced form factor of the Orion eliminates design constraints and allows more design freedom for lighting designers, says chief technology officer Dr Keith Strickland. "Typically, using COB [chip-on-board]-type LEDs or modules makes it difficult to control color over angle, forcing designers to make fixtures much larger in size. The Orion, with Stellar beam-forming technology, represents the next phase in LED lighting with low cost, high efficiency and greater control of light. Greater control over the direction and quality of light is a crucial element in retail, industrial, hospitality and outdoor lighting; this, combined with the slim-line design and impressive thermal characteristics, means we provide lighting designers and architects far more design freedom," he adds.

"The Orion focuses on replacing design limitations with opportunities, thus providing lighting designers with a new level of design freedom," says Paul Drosihn, Plessey's head of Modular Products. "The size/performance envelope we have achieved allows industrial high-bay and architectural luminaires used in high-end offices, homes and retail outlets to be created in a new way," he adds. "With a particular emphasis on improving the thermal characteristics, the heat-sink can also be reduced in size, allowing the end fixture to be less obtrusive."
