FuturoLighting debuts 12W AC-LED module that operates directly from 230 VAC

April 13, 2015
Piestany – FuturoLighting, a company focused on LED lighting solutions, introduces a smart AC-LED module operating directly from a 230-VAC network. The AC-LED module integrates an AC driver with high PFC above 0.97 offering on/off and dimming functionality with stand-by power consumption below 0.5 W.
The AC-LED module was designed in several versions covering basic, triac dimmable, analog dimmable, and smart functionality. Dimensions of the module are 100 x 100 mm with heights of 5 mm for basic and 25 mm for the smart version.
It is the first integrated approach of an AC driver combined with a motion sensor and smart behavior. These AC-LED modules are behaving electrically similar to incandescent bulbs (resistive load). The smart version offers corridor functionality with adjustable delay time, where stand-by level can be adjusted from 0-80% through programming the interface directly on the module. The special feature of the smart AC-LED modules is integrated dimming behavior that makes the light level change very smooth during the on/off switching of the module. The smart module has an ambient sensor for recognition of daytime/nighttime and its threshold level can be easily adjusted through the programming interface as well.

The smart AC-LED modules can be integrated with various LED brands. The current design accepts Osram Duris E 5, Samsung LM561, LiteON 5630, LG, and other similar footprint mid-power LEDs. It must be noted that the AC conversion principle is not flicker-free and is mostly suitable for cost-sensitive applications where Class I is acceptable.
This AC-LED module can be customized according to customer requirements. Design files for the module as well as measurement reports are available for sale in the design package.
