Arrow Electronics launches online lighting design tools

Date Announced: 16 Nov 2011

Englewood, Colo. - Arrow Electronics, Inc. today announced an application platform that enables engineers to design complete LED lighting solutions in a convenient online environment. The Arrow Lighting Designer offers tools and solutions tailored to customers’ applications, with built-in design guidelines providing quick results.

The Lighting Designer platform combines multiple tools for selecting and optimizing LED solutions, adding secondary optics, defining the power supply and selecting and laying out a design. Each tool can be used independently to design and analyze individual components, or in tandem to develop a comprehensive solution.

In addition to valuable LED product and system data, the tool offers several LED system options, such as the “recommended,” “highest efficacy” and “least expensive” solutions. After selecting an option, users can see suggested alternatives and return on investment for transitioning from traditional lighting. A unique sharing feature enables users to collaborate with peers and Arrow field application engineers.

“The Arrow Lighting Designer is ideal for companies that can benefit from deeper engineering expertise or accelerating the design process,” Gary Zullo, director of Arrow’s Lighting Group in North America.

“This powerful application is part of Arrow’s strategy to accelerate the transition to solid-state lighting with tools that make designing with LEDs easier. Arrow’s lighting design specialists are available to provide support at every step in the lighting design process, from concept to production.”
