TE Connectivity (TE) is making it easy for luminaire designers to test and evaluate the LUMAWISE Drive LED Holder Type Z50 by introducing a new development kit. The kit will enable designers to purchase a single unit for desktop testing, product evaluation and luminaire prototyping. Each kit contains an LED holder, a cable assembly and a thermal interface material.
LUMAWISE drive LED holder Type Z50 On/Off series, launched last September, is an LED holder for Chip-on-Board (COB) LEDs where a DC/DC driver has been integrated into the holder itself. This allows luminaire designers to remove driver boxes from spot and track lighting, giving a more aesthetically pleasing solution and removing cost from the system.
“Since we launched the Type Z50 LED holder less than six months ago, response from the market has been very encouraging,” says Jonathan Catchpole, systems architect & business development at TE. “At TE we aim to make engineers job’s easier and accelerate the development process for technologists. The new development kit makes it easier for luminaire designers to appreciate its advantages and work out how best to integrate it into their new products.”
Designed for 48VDC input, the product works with a wide range of readily available constant voltage power supplies, making it possible to power multiple fixtures off a single power supply.
The product provides thermal and electrical connection to four different COB sizes – 16x19mm, 19x19mm, 20x24mm and 24x24mm – and has four different current outputs: 350, 500, 700, and 1050 mA.
