Show preview release:
LIGHTFAIR International (LFI 2017), May 9 - 11
Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia
LED Engin located at Booth 1557

LED Engin Showcases its Versatile LuxiTune™ Family of Tunable
Light Engines at LIGHTFAIR International 2017

San Jose, CA, USA: May 8, 2017: At LIGHTFAIR International 2017 (LFI 2017), LED Engin, Inc. will showcase its expanding and increasingly versatile LuxiTune™ family of linear dynamic light engines at Booth 1557. Additions to the family include new form factors for tunable white light sources that extend the high performance and excellent light quality of LuxiTune's industry-leading products, from directional to area lighting applications. Also on show will be emitters for architainment (architectural and entertainment), horticulture, UV, and IR lighting - the largest selection of high-power color and white LEDs in single-die and multi-die packages available today... read all

Among the innovations that LED Engin will be demonstrating at Lightfair this year is a linear LuxiTune module based on mid-power LEDs that tunes from 2100K-6500K with a CRI of 90 and providing 950lm/ft. This unit is targeted at linear fixtures with deeper profiles; area lighting applications such as cove lighting, uplighting, etc., where the emphasis is on the illuminated area; and at 2x2 and 2x4 fixtures that have efficient light mixing diffusers.

Another module, featuring higher-power LZ4 emitters and tuning from 1800K-6500K with CRI>90 and 1400lm/ft., is intended for linear fixtures with shallower profiles; architectural linear slots and pendants designed for distinctive appearance of light source (not just the illuminated area); and linear fixtures with higher flux requirements. Both these modules tune along the black body locus (BBL) and match the performance of directional LuxiTune light engines.

For the simplest of directional lighting implementations that can use off-the-shelf reflectors for spots and floods, LED Engin now offers an easy-integration 0-10V LuxiTune module. This is designed to fit inside fixtures that currently use established fixed CCT white light modules and allows luminaire manufacturers to readily extend their product line with tunable white offerings.

David Tahmassebi, President and CEO of LED Engin, emphasized the benefits of its growing range of lighting solutions, saying, "Our goal is to build on the proven performance of LuxiTune with compelling designs that deliver high quality along with simplicity of implementation. We are extending the tunable range, which is already 1800K-6500K across the board for our 1100lm LZC and 2000lm LZP based packages, and yet switching remains simple, the controls do not change, and neither does the hardware configuration."

About LED Engin, Inc.
LED Engin, based in California's Silicon Valley, specializes in ultra-bright, ultra-compact solid state lighting solutions that allow designers and engineers the freedom to create uncompromised yet energy efficient lighting experiences. The company's LuxiGen™ Platform - an emitter and lens combination or integrated module, delivers superior flexibility in light output, ranging from 3W to 90W, a wide spectrum of available colors, including whites, multi-color and UV, and the ability to deliver upwards of 5,000 high quality lumens to a target. The small size combined with powerful output allows for a previously unobtainable freedom of design wherever high flux density, directional light is required.

Small Form-Factor Tunable-White LED Light Engine Enhanced with
BLE Control Interface for Smart Lighting Applications

San Jose, CA, USA: February 2, 2017: Combining a compact form factor with the latest platform features, the LuxiTune™2.3 tunable white light engine announced by LED Engin, Inc., a leader in high flux density LED products, targets the same track-lighting and small down-lighting applications as its Gen 2.0 products, while delivering the added performance and controllability benefits that were introduced with Gen 3.0. These advances, which include smooth deep dimming to 0.5%, no e-flicker and no visible flicker, also extend to additional control interfaces for DALI, DMX-RDM and Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) through daughter cards, that customers can chose to wire into their fixtures... read all

LuxiTune 2.3 is a 46mm diameter, 1100lm, single-emitter light engine that provides a replacement for LuxiTune 2.0 products. The Gen 2.3 hybrid board takes advantage of the thermal performance characteristics of 'dielectric in metal core' printed circuit board technology to integrate both the emitter and 0-10V driver in this more compact format. Besides bridging the gap between LED Engin's Gen 2.0 and Gen 3.0 tunable-white solutions, LuxiTune 2.3 is also offered at a lower price so fixture manufacturers can derive the most value.

With wireless control becoming an increasing requirement, the LuxiTune BLE daughter-card designed with technology from Casambi, is key to enabling BLE mesh-networked lighting installations. The interface was developed to be compatible with LuxiTune's firmware and plug into the Gen 3.0 driver board and has been available for some time. LuxiTune installations can be commissioned and controlled using the Casambi App that provides an end-to-end solution. Now, of course, it also supports the LuxiTune 2.3 light engine, opening up an even wider range of smart-lighting possibilities.

World's largest selection of high power color and white LED emitters
from LED Engin deliver optimum spectra for horticultural lighting

Portfolio provides customized horticultural lighting solutions
to suit plant requirements at all stages of cultivation

San Jose, CA, USA: December 7, 2016: LED Engin, a multi-award winning manufacturer of high flux density LED products, announces the market's most comprehensive range of high-power color and white LED emitters for horticultural lighting. Alongside the typical colors used in horticultural applications (Blue 450nm, Deep Red 660nm and Far Red 740nm), the company is adding custom solutions that include 3 new direct colors (Violet 415nm, Royal Blue 436nm and Cyan 500nm), a phosphor-converted green and full white CCT options (2200K-6500K). Together with the already vast selection of standard LED emitters spanning from UV 365nm to Infrared 940nm and unrivalled packaging technology, this means all types of purpose-built lighting solutions can be easily created to deliver optimized spectra for improved crop productivity... read all

LED Engin's emitters are available in single-die packages, as well as multi-die, multi-channel, high-power density ceramic packages of up to 25 die in a single emitter, rated for 3 - 80W maximum power dissipation. The emitters feature the industry's lowest thermal resistance of 0.5 - 6.0 °C/W, which ensures efficient heat dissipation resulting in excellent flux output and flux maintenance over time. The packages are designed with a glass primary lens to deliver exceptional robustness in challenging growing environments with high ambient temperature and humidity. All these features, combined with highly efficient LED die in all colors, deliver enhanced spectra with ultra-high Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF) promoting plant growth and making year-round cultivation possible.

David Tahmassebi, President and CEO of LED Engin, comments: "Plants respond to varying colors and intensity, and LED Engin provides a complete solution. In addition to the conventional colors used in horticultural illumination, we offer complementary colors to enable fixture manufacturers to either create a full spectrum that mimics the sun or a proprietary spectrum to suit specific needs, allowing them to differentiate their products from typical horticultural fixtures."

Unique and proprietary bespoke designs can be tailored to specific needs and applications. LED Engin supports emitters with customized die configuration, collections of single-color emitters shipped in pre-defined ratios, plus complete integrated system modules for easier assembly. More info can be obtained from LED Engin's sales team as well as its distributors.
