Bridgelux to showcase LBT phase-cut dimming technology at EuroShop 2011
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – February XX , 2010 -- Light-Based Technologies Inc. (LBT) is pleased to have been selected by Bridgelux Inc., of Livermore, California, to provide the control solution to demonstrate the award winning Helieon™ LED-based sustainable lighting module to be prominently displayed at the Bridgelux booth at EuroShop 2011, the world’s most important trade fair for retailers. Bridgelux chose the LBT solution for its phase-cut deep-dimming capabilities which showcase the quality and performance of the Bridgelux products in a variety of lighting applications
LBT selected phase-cut dimming as its initial dimming control target due to its wide-spread use in residential and commercial applications. The ability to provide flicker-free deep-dimming allows LEDs to provide the functionality and high quality light of incandescent and halogen lamp technology while also enabling the replacement of higher lumen HID and fluorescent sources with added dimming capability for increased energy savings.
LBT’s LB4 family of integrated circuits emulates the smooth, seamless 0-100% light output curve of incandescent lamps, and works with both leading and trailing edge dimmers. Flicker-free dimming below 0.1% is the sort of functionality that will allow lighting fixture manufacturers to speed the adoption of LED-based solid-state lighting.
The Helieon™ sustainable light module is the result of a joint development between Bridgelux and Molex Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX and MOLXA). Helieon combines industry-leading solid state lighting technology from Bridgelux with innovative, easy-to-use interconnect technology from Molex, delivering effortless installation, interchangeability and upgradeability to interior and exterior OEM fixture manufacturers. The potential to marry the simplicity of Helieon with the exceptional control enabled by LBT provides lighting fixture OEM’s a powerful solution which delivers the high quality dimming demanded by the general illumination market.
