Lynk Labs adds Cree to AC LED technology supplier network

LynkLabs is now incorporating Cree XLamp LEDs in to its new range of GeoLite linear AC LED systems.

Lynk Labs, Inc., the industry leader in AC LED technology has added Cree Inc. to its strategic supplier network of AC LED manufacturers.

Lynk Labs, the leading manufacturer of AC-driven LED light engines and system solutions for OEMs, has added Cree as the second LED manufacturer to supply Lynk with LEDs for AC LED products.

AC LED light engines and power supplies from Lynk Labs are designed to provide OEMs with "Bulb and Ballast" simplicity for LED-powered luminaires.

Lynk Labs is already partnered with Citizen Electronics to supply Lynk with LEDs for SnapBriteTM and XyLiteTM AC LED light engines. XyLite modules deliver flexible X and Y dimensional building blocks of light that enable OEM product designers to accelerate and simplify their product design strategy for almost any LED lighting application, says Lynk (see An alternate way of driving LEDs).

In addition, Lynk Labs believes that its AC LED technology can help OEMs deliver LED lighting products that are “Lighting Infrastructure Friendly” and better understood by architects, contractors, reps, distributors and end customers.

Lynk Labs has now added Cree to its AC LED Technology Strategic Supplier Network following the recent launch in the US of GeoLiteTM, a linear AC LED system solution for retail, display and architectural applications.

GeoLite utilizes the Cree XLamp® XR-E LED and is encapsulated within a sleek, low-profile linear casing which also acts as the heat sink. Available in 14-, 28- and 42-inch lengths, GeoLite is sold to OEMs and system integrators for display case and other linear lighting applications.

“Lynk Labs will be working closely and strategically with Cree to develop additional AC LED light engines and system solutions for OEMs and customers” said Bob Kottritsch, Vice President Marketing & Product Development for Lynk Labs. “Integrating Cree’s lighting-class LED technology into Lynk Labs AC LED light engines and system technology will provide new and exciting opportunities for OEMs to reduce time to market and simplify their product offerings.”
