Future Lighting Solutions offers online lighting system design tool
May 27th, 2015
Montreal, Quebec – Future Lighting Solutions (FLS) announces the release of the new Lighting System Creator (LSC) online lighting system design tool. The LSC is the first and only online tool of its kind that enables a user to seamlessly create an entire lighting system solution from standard components while incorporating LM-80 data. The LSC lighting system design tool leverages a proprietary algorithm based on value engineering principles that automatically generates light source options with the optimal current and temperature to meet flux, efficacy and L70 lumen maintenance targets from a minimum set of input parameters. For the first time, users will be able to select LED modules when running simulations, allowing them to evaluate the entire gamut of solid state light source technologies.
Based on the user-selected target application and light source, the LSC lighting system design tool suggests the most appropriate system component options, including optics, LED drivers, connectors/sockets and thermal management solutions, to define a complete lighting system. The LSC also automatically provides additional details such as the optimal series/parallel light source layout for the LED drivers, mechanical compatibility of the heat sink mounting holes with the selected light source or socket, and whether the selected LED driver can power active cooling thermal solutions.
“With the proliferation of available light source technologies such as low to high power LEDs, COBs, Level 2 boards and integrated modules from a variety of vendors, it has become increasingly complex and time consuming to identify the right products to meet application requirements,” commented Patrick Durand, FLS Worldwide technical director. “The LSC simplifies the light source and system solution selection process in order to start the prototyping phase sooner and reduce time to market.”
The LSC is available at www.FutureLightingSolutions.com/LSC and comments or questions can be submitted to FLSTools@FutureLightingSolutions.com.
