Livermore, Calif., April 2, 2012 – Bridgelux Inc., bringing innovation to light by delivering high power, energy efficient and cost effective LED solutions, today announced the expansion of its highly successful Decor™ line of ultra-high color rendering index (CRI) LED arrays. Addressing growing demand in the shop and retail, architectural, hospitality and museum lighting markets for the energy efficiency and high quality light offered by LED technology, Bridgelux has expanded its successful Decor 97 CRI product series introduced in October 2011. The Decor series now offers increased efficiency as well as a broader range of light sources—from 500 to 5000 operational lumens in three color temperatures, 2700, 3000 and 3500K—to satisfy the increasing number of applications demanding very high light quality. The Decor series expands lighting options available to the lighting designer, complimenting the standard minimum 80 and minimum 90 CRI products also available from Bridgelux.
With a CRI of 97 and a 3-step MacAdam Ellipse color control option, the Decor arrays enable lighting designers to accurately render a full palette of colors over a wide range of light levels to create stunning and sophisticated lighting effects. The Decor series has been spectrally engineered to virtually replicate the light quality of halogen and incandescent light sources. These arrays deliver R9 and R15 values of 98, to both enhance reds and more accurately represent many skin tones, delivering clean and natural lighting.
“Bridgelux’s introduction of the higher lumen output Decor arrays will allow us to significantly expand our ARONDO LED luminaire line,” said David Rice, vice president BAERO North America, Inc. “Designed specifically for supermarket lighting, BAERO’s ARONDO LED fixtures currently offer 10 different light engine options with 3 of those options utilizing the high 97 CRI Decor arrays for premium presentation. Fixtures with the Decor option range from 1,936 to 3,304 lumens while also providing unmatched color. This has allowed BAERO to capture a greater share of applications in supermarket lighting, converting them from conventional lighting technologies to energy efficient solid state lighting. The quality and performance is excellent as is the support we have received from Bridgelux as we developed the ARONDO LED.”
The Decor arrays feature the same form factors as current Bridgelux array products, allowing a simple upgrade path for existing customers while minimizing design efforts.
