June 3, 2010 - Measuring 23.5 x 23.5 x 0.35 in. and weighing under 6.6 lb, troffer backlight incorporates edge-lit LED light guide technology that produces brightness of 24 lm at output of 400 30 lux @ 2 m and has color temperature of 4000K/6000K. Light extraction technologies extract light precisely where needed, providing bright, uniform light without hot spots. Consuming 45 W, products incorporate LEDs with lifetime of about 30,000 hr.

GLT Brings LED-Based Edge-Lighting Technology and Mass Production Capabilities to Ultra-Slim, Lightweight, Efficient Troffer Downlights

Press release date: May 24, 2010

Brecksville, OH - Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) has combined its edge-lit LED light guide technology with its mass production capabilities to create a new troffer downlight that is slim, light, efficient, and can be cost effectively manufactured in high volumes.

The troffer backlight utilizes advanced light extraction technologies to extract light precisely where needed, providing bright, uniform light in a thinner form factor without hot spots or dark areas. The LEDs are spaced along the edge of the troffer assembly against the light guide to create an assembly measuring 23.5" x 23.5", with a thickness of only 0.35", and a weight of less than 3 kg (6.6 lbs.).

GLT's edge-lighting approach achieves maximum efficiency in light dispersion, with product now in production having a brightness of 24 lumens at an output of 400 30 lux @ 2m, a color temperature of 4000K/6000K, and power consumption of 45W. Future production modules will be even more efficient.

"Illuminating this troffer with the traditional fluorescent tube technology would have resulted in an assembly up to 5 inches thick," according to Brett Shriver, GLT's Director of Sales. "Our approach yields a much slimmer, more lightweight, higher intensity backlight with an LED lifetime of about 30,000 hours, and with three production facilities in China and Taiwan, we bring the advantages of mass production to a product that heretofore has been an expensive 'one-off' where the light guide had to be manufactured for each troffer. We can make them in the thousands with no differentiation from troffer to troffer."

And, since LEDs contain no mercury, the edge-lit troffer is an environmentally friendly solution as well. It also reduces maintenance and power consumption and, when compared to a direct backlighting approach using LED arrays, minimizes thermal management issues as well as the number of LEDs required for efficient, uniform light dispersion.

Pricing for GLT edge-lit troffer backlights varies according to size, application, number of LEDs and quantity. Contact GLT for details.

Made

Excellent product, but only one concern it's not made in the U.S.A. I only buy American Made Products. Keep America Working
