New Direct 120V AC LED from Thomas Research Products
Huntley, Illinois --- Thomas Research Products is excited to add 120V LED light engines, which connect directly to mains power, to their expanding line of AC LED products. Thomas Research Products is a leading manufacturer of SSL power solutions.
TRP's new 120V AC LED product line includes a variety of linear, square or round, and single COB LED light engine designs. Models range from 1W to 30W, and offer color temperature options ranging from 2200K through daylight 5700K. Some configurations have output reach 100 lumens per watt at 80+ CRI.
These products were developed in collaboration with Lynk Labs, pioneers in AC LED technology.
Some models include Lynk's patent-pending Warm-Dimming technology, perfect for applications that require an incandescent-type color shift when dimmed with standard triac dimmers. First debuted in early 2012, this technology was actually one of the first CCT-shift-when-dimming solutions available in the industry. It is unique as the only CCT-shifting LED technology that operates directly on mains voltage.
The key advantage of LEDs that operate on AC is their inherent simplicity, reducing the need for complex drivers or power supplies. This makes them more robust and increases reliability. Operating on AC reduces space requirements as well as the thermal challenges. Plus, AC LEDs are natively dimmable, making them perfect for use with standard phase cut dimmers.
TRP AC light engines are ideal for a number of applications, including high power fixtures like garage and outdoor lighting, because they eliminate the cost and space of power supplies. These products are especially attractive for OEMs creating LED products for the residential market. The Warm-Dimming light engines are perfect for the hospitality market. 230V models are available for overseas markets.
TRP's new 120V AC light engines will be in addition to Low-Voltage AC LED products and complement the company's comprehensive DC-based LED Driver line. They offer OEMs more options for developing solid state luminaires. Availability begins during 1Q 2014.
