Bridgelux and Molex have introduced the first LED lighting solution designed and priced to drive rapid and mass-market adoption of LED lighting technology.

Bridgelux’s Helieon Sustainable Light Module solid-state lighting features interconnect technology from Molex.

It delivers to interior and exterior luminaire manufacturers effortless installation, interchangeability and upgradeability.

At a volume price point at less than USD20 (GBP13.16) per unit and a lifespan of more than 10 years, Helieon is one of the industry’s highest quality, most cost-effective solid-state lighting solutions and will change the way LED lighting solutions are used.

Helieon also helps lighting manufacturers reduce energy costs and environmental waste for a sustainably designed lighting environment.

Bridgelux and Molex, both leaders in their respective industries, joined forces to create a best-in-class and price-disruptive solid-state light module comprised of completely recyclable components.

Helieon combines LED array products from Bridgelux with Molex interconnect technology to create a socketed plug-and-play solution that can be easily integrated into a wide variety of luminaires.

The separable source-and-socket system emulates a traditional bulb and socket, allowing manufacturers to deliver a variety of lighting effects from a single luminaire design.

Initial product offerings include between 500 and 1,500 lumens in 3000K warm white or 4100K neutral white, combined with precision optics to deliver narrow, medium or wide flood-beam angles.

The Bridgelux arrays used in the Helieon Sustainable Light Module deliver between 500 and 1,500 operational lumens (performance comparable to or greater than 40 to 75W incandescent bulbs) in a compact high-flux density light source.

These integrated solutions deliver high-quality light without pixilation, closely replicating the beam quality of traditional light sources.

Bridgelux technology enables exceptional thermal resistance, brightness and colour uniformity.

Helieon combines the Bridgelux LED array with a precision beam-control optic to further simplify the design process for the luminaire manufacturer and enable high-quality lighting.

The Molex interconnect technology provides a remarkably easy and familiar installation experience, simplifying the design effort and allowing luminaire designers, commercial end-users and consumers to upgrade, interchange and replace modules, altering and controlling their environment as desired.

The Molex design can adapt to a range of fixture configurations.

Helieon will be available for production shipments in May.

The product carries a three-year warranty and provides the efficacy to enable luminaires to meet Energy Star, Title 24, Part L and other global regulatory standards.

Helieon is RoHS compliant and the companies are in the process of securing UL recognition to further simplify the design and customer-acceptance process.
