Plessey extends beam-forming LED module family

Plessey has added to its range of ultra-slim Orion LED modules based on its Stellar beam forming technology, with new beam angles opening the technology up to a wider range of applications in both industrial and architectural lighting design.

The Orion LED Beam Forming Modules are able to deliver a 3000 lumen beam from a module 5.6mm thick, less than one-tenth the size of standard alternatives. The recently launched PLWS3000 25° FWHM beam angle module has now been joined by modules with 15° and 50° beam angles.

All modules in the family share a common 82mm diameter, which allows lighting designers to substitute modules, helping to create a family of compact luminaires for a wider range of lighting applications.

Plessey has also announced plans to release Orion-Mini, a 45mm diameter version offering a 10° sub 1000 lumen beam. Due for launch in the Spring of 2017, the Orion-Mini will have the slim profile of the full size module, but will come in a format more suitable for design into small form-factor downlights, spotlights and architectural lights as a replacement for GU10, MR16 and similar lights.

The Orion modules have been designed to be used in a variety of directional lighting applications such as retail, track and architectural.

By integrating this LED technology with its Stellar beam forming technology Plessey is able to provide an efficient, slim line module to give customers much greater design freedom which tends not to be accessible with alternative COB style modules. The modules enhanced thermal characteristics have allowed the heat sink and the overall luminaire to be reduced in size.

The Orion family of modules is offered in three colour temperatures: warm white, neutral white and cool white. The modules have a luminous efficiency of over 100lumens/W, feature an improved light uniformity and excellent thermal performance.
