Philips Lighting has announced the Gen2 FastFlex LED light engine that includes a 216×49.5 circuit board with 16 LEDs mounted in a 2×8 pattern along with a selection of lenses that can deliver different beam patterns. FastFlex is a lens-based LED lighting system. FastFlex is a flexible LED lighting solution for road and street lighting. The proposition consists of 2 key building blocks – a LED board and an optical lens. Combined with Xitanium LED Xtreme drivers, the system provides optimal protection against harsh outdoor conditions. The FastFlex LED module Gen2 has fantastic LED performance.
Philips Lighting has announced the Gen2 FastFlex LED light engine(the second generation of the FastFlex LED module) that includes a 216×49.5 circuit board with 16 LEDs mounted in a 2×8 pattern along with a selection of lenses that can deliver different beam patterns. The modular product, combined with a Philips Xitanium LED Xtreme drive, can enable product developers to quickly deliver solid-state lighting (SSL) products for outdoor and industrial applications.
The flexible optics offering allows a manufacturer to stock a single light engine while having the ability to quickly deliver products for a variety of needs from flood to area lighting outdoors and for high-bay applications. Off the shelf, Philips offers optics for Type 2, 3, 4, and 5 patterns.
Philips specifies the light engine for efficacy of 145 lm/W at 350 mA of drive current. But product developers have the ability to trade off lumen output and efficacy. For example, the 80-CRI module can deliver 4763 lm at 1A and the 70-CRI module can deliver 5038 lm at 1A. At the elevated drive current the efficacy is 104 lm/W and 111 lm/W, respectively.
At 530 mA, Philips rates the module for 50,000 hours or more of life. That rating covers both lumen maintenance to L80 and also the general survival of 90% of the products sold. Warranty is five years when used with an approved driver.
Philips also stresses the optical efficiency of the module, pointing out that reflector-based high-intensity discharge (HID) luminaires can have efficiency around 70%. The company says that the FastFlex module with lens has 96% optical efficiency. Moreover, the lenses produce uniform light that is directed to the intended surface area.
The modules use Philips Lumileds Luxeon T LEDs with a CCT of 4000K. Philips said that the modules are a good match for roadway lighting, urban-area streetlighting, tunnel lighting, and general area and floodlighting outdoors. Indoors the target is industrial high-bay applications.
FastFlex is a lens-based LED lighting system. The proposition consists of 2 key building blocks – a LED board and an optical lens. Combined with Xitanium LED Xtreme drivers, the system provides optimal protection against harsh outdoor conditions. The modules are mechanically ideal for hassle-free manufacturing, and can be pre-assembled for rapid production. The system delivers outstanding optical control and flexible system design.
FastFlex is a flexible LED lighting solution for road and street lighting. The modular concept allows for perfect luminaire creation based on application needs. The module’s flexible light output and performance characteristics mean the luminaire can be optimised for best lumen/watt or best value, and the range of optics can create a complete portfolio from a single light engine design. FastFlex LED module is designed to minimise the impact of thermal and physical stresses, ensuring a robust and reliable solution.
Perfectly match each project’s needs
Flexible system design
Easy factory assembly and reliable lifetime performance
Low cost of thermal management
Minimal scrap and outdated component cost
The proposition consists of two key building blocks – a LED board and an optical lens. The core of the FastFlex LED system proposition is the modular approach to luminaire design. The same lumen package can be created using different combinations of LED module boards and drive currents, allowing luminaire manufacturers to optimize their designs for performance, value, or a balance of the two.
The FastFlex LED module Gen2 has fantastic LED performance, delivering 145 lm/W at 350mA. In addition, FastFlex lenses offer 96% optical efficiency and the lens portfolio has a range of beam patterns, meeting the needs of the majority of outdoor projects, floodlighting and high-bay applications. The range of optics can create a complete portfolio from a single light engine design. Outstanding optical design and module efficiency result in reduced light pollution and up to 30% energy savings compared to conventional systems.
FastFlex is designed to minimize the impact of physical forces. The patented module clip offers a unique solution to managing mechanical and thermal stresses placed on a lens-based light engine during the luminaire manufacturing process and operation in the field. The modules are mechanically ideal for hassle-free manufacturing, and can be pre-assembled for rapid production.
The ideal outdoor LED system is created by combining FastFlex LED module Gen2 with a Philips Xitanium LED Xtreme driver. The FastFlex LED module is now available for ordering.
