Future Lighting Solutions and Leotek Electronics design LED street lights for better performance and energy savings

Date Announced: 30 Aug 2012

Shanghai, China – Future Lighting Solutions and Leotek Electronics Corporation are pleased to announce the successful completion of their collaborative project designing LED streetlights to improve performance while also saving on energy usage and costs.

Working closely with Philips Lumileds, Future Lighting Solutions supported Leotek through every technical detail of the design, including measurement calibration, MCPCB layout, stencil design, pick & place nozzle, SMT process and more.

Incorporating Philips Lumileds’ new LUXEON® M, Leotek designed its own 264W Arieta to replace two 400W metal halide fixtures, which subsequently yields a 71% energy savings. The LUXEON M, was selected for its superior light quality and lower system cost, as determined by using Future Lighting Solutions’ exclusive Usable Light Tool which compares high power LEDs to evaluate performance characteristics such as luminous flux, junction temperature, calculated forward voltage and efficacy.

“Leotek Electronics is a highly regarded brand” Jack Kuo, Taiwan Sales Director for Future Lighting Solutions, said. “This partnership is another step in our efforts to drive LED adoption in markets around the world.”
