LED beam forming module simplifies specialist lighting designs

October 03, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Plessey (Plymouth, UK) had configured a standard LED module based on its own Stellar beam forming technology. The new standard module opens opportunities for creativity in industrial and architectural lighting design.

The Orion PLWS3000 series is an LED array module delivering over 3000 lumens, integrating LED and optics into a tiny module 5.6 mm thick and 82 mm in diameter. Alternative solutions, Plessey says, typically require optics that are 100 mm deep and 111 mm in diameter for a comparable light output and beam. Plessey has achieved this size and performance breakthrough by combining its own Stellar beam forming optics and GaN-on-Si LED technology. Plessey is anticipating applications for the module in the design of track, retail, architectural, high intensity, spot and directional lighting and the slim line module will be particularly attractive for architectural applications.


The company says that he size / performance envelope it has achieved allows industrial high bay and architectural luminaires used in high end offices, homes and retail outlets to be created in a new way. 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.
