Samsung Now Mass Producing Lens-attached Modules with Optic Technology, for Flat LED Lighting Applications
SEOUL, South Korea --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component
solutions and LED component technology, said today that it has begun
mass producing a value-added line-up of highly efficient lens-attached
LED modules (LAMs), for use in office LED lighting applications that
include linear and line lighting, cove lighting and troffers.
"With its LAM series, Samsung is rolling out leading-edge concepts in
LED lighting design to the mass market and will continue to do so later
this year and beyond," said Bangwon Oh, senior vice president of
strategic marketing team, LED Business, Samsung Electronics. "As LED's
penetration in the lighting industry increases, it is clear that
enabling slimmer fixtures is an important area of market
differentiation, an area where Samsung LAMs deliver the most efficient,
homogeneous design solutions in LED lighting today."
Samsung's LAM series embraces a state-of-the-art concept in LED modules.
The LAM solutions are created by attaching lenses on top of the LED
packages in each module. The lenses add wide beam angles for their light
sources using advanced optic technology, so that each LED package can
brighten a space larger than that of conventional packages.
The new LAM series makes use of technology from Samsung LED packages for
flat-TV backlight units (BLUs). In 2012, when LEDs became popular in
BLUs for LCD TVs, Samsung created LED BLU modules combining lenses with
LED packages to increase overall light output.
Using a Samsung LAM solution adds more design flexibility for a wide
range of luminaires. Unlike fluorescent and incandescent lamps,
conventional LED lighting features individual LED packages, each of
which emits light. As a result, depending on the distance between the
diffusion plate and the LED modules in the fixture, the spaces between
packages on the module can appear as dark spots. To prevent this, the
diffusion plate has to be placed further away from the module, which
unfortunately increases the thickness of the fixture.
With the new Samsung LAM series using diffusion-improving optic
technology, the diffusion plate can be placed much closer to the module
- as close as 35 millimeters, a significantly smaller space than the 80
to 100 millimeters needed for conventional T5/T8 fluorescent tubes.
Samsung will showcase its new LAM series at the upcoming Light and
Building trade fair being held in Frankfurt, Germany, March 31 - April
4, along with a wide variety of other LED component solutions.
