May 15, 2007
Date Announced: 15 May 2007 --- New Online Resource Launched to Assist the Lighting Community in Developing Solid-state Solutions--- Future Lighting Solutions launch website dedicated to LUXEON® LED solutionsMONTREAL, CANADA MAY 8, 2007 – Future Electronics today launched a new web site for the lighting community, www.futurelightingsolutions.com, dedicated to providing detailed design, engineering and solution information required to appropriately build solid-state lighting solutions. The site features complementary infrastructure solutions including power, thermal, optical and integration solutions as well as tools, guides and Certified Solutions Partner information all created to assist lighting designers and engineers develop new LED lighting solutions. Future Lighting Solutions a division of Future Electronics, is the largest worldwide provider of solid-state lighting solutions and the worldwide exclusive provider of LUXEON power LEDs which continue to set the standard for performance, reliability and quality of light. Comparing and selecting the appropriate LEDs for a specific project is often the most difficult task for engineers. The Usable Light Tool on the web site is a unique tool that analyzes seven critical parameters and provides a comparison of competitive LEDs so that designers can make an apples-to-apples comparison and ultimately the right LED selection. This is the only tool of its kind that calculates the actual usable light expected from the LEDs under ‘real world’ operating conditions which are significantly different than those found on product datasheets. “Our objective with FutureLightingSolutions.com is to support the lighting community and help them successfully navigate through all the information and find answers that will help them build quality solutions and get them to market quickly.” said Lawrence Madanda, Director of Global Marketing. “With the increasing market attention to technology solutions that will reduce energy needs and which are more environmentally friendly, there is a dramatic increase in the demand for LED lighting solutions. However, to date, there have been few places for the engineering and design communities to turn to for comprehensive information. That problem is now solved with this new web site.” With information from more than 50 Certified Solutions Partners that can assist with the selection of components and the design and building of fixtures, the new web site is expected to become an industry ‘go-to’ resource, and the most comprehensive site dedicated to power LEDs on the worldwide web.
