Future Lighting Solutions opens resource centers to develop Luxeon LED-based applications

Future Lighting Solutions, a division of Future Electronics, has introduced LED Lighting Resource Centers (LRCs) for customers developing Luxeon LED based products. Each center will have two principal laboratories: a Luxeon Retrofit Lab, for proof of concept development, and technology validation; and a Light Measurement Lab. The LRCs are located in Montreal, Canada (serving the Americas and Europe) and Shenzhen, China (serving Asia/Pacific and Japan).

"The new LRCs provide expertise in every area of power LED engineering required for developing Luxeon based applications," said Jamie Singerman, corporate VP worldwide. "For those lighting companies that want to enter the market but don't have the optical, thermal, power, systems and LED engineering knowledge in-house, the LRC can be of extraordinary value by reducing development costs and allowing companies to enter the LED lighting market more quickly."

Services provided at the centers include: Luxeon proof of concept application development, custom electronics application development, optical design and simulation, secondary optics evaluation and characterization, and high-power LED characterization

Patrick Durand, Future Lighting Solutions' worldwide technical applications engineer, said: "Customers are able to come to us for a range of services that will help them design Luxeon into their applications successfully - and it is all from one source; Future Lighting Solutions. A number of our customers have already taken advantage of the services."
