Tridonic of Dornbirn, Austria, has released the fifth generation of the 24 mm LLE ADVANCED modules for linear luminaires and panel lights. The new modules boast efficacy of up to 200 lumens per watt. Tridonic says that the improved quality and efficacy of the LED modules results from a combination of the production and procurement process, and the company’s chip selection and binning based on optical criteria.
Tridonic cites its rigorous procurement and production process, which only uses premium raw materials as one of the reasons for the high quality and high efficacy of the LED modules. The company also says it bases its binning and chip selection on comprehensive testing and stringent optical criteria, which the company claims far exceed the usual standards. The resulting improvements thus boosted the efficacy of the fifth generation LLE modules up to 200 lumens per watt in the high-efficiency portfolio and up to 190 lumens per watt in the standard portfolio.
All of the new modules also come with a color rendering index above 90 or above 80, both as SELV and non-SELV variants. Tridonic asserts that the modules give designers greater flexibility now that it is also possible to combine SELV variants in different lengths, while the light output remains entirely homogeneous. Also, the company notes that the lengths and drill holes according to ZHAGA requirements allow integration into existing designs.
Wide Range of Applications
The new LLE modules are compatible with existing accessories for linear luminaires, including ACL linear lenses with light distributions, mounting clips, end caps, and covers. With the appropriate covers, the modules can even be used right away as luminaires, according to Tridonic.
The company says that combining the modules with a suitable LED driver (either fixed output or dimmable) creates a highly efficient system for a broad range of applications. The LLE modules come in different lengths and with color temperatures of 2,700 K, 3,000 K, 3,500 K, 4,000 K, 5,000 K, and 6,500 K. Also with the right dimming driver, Tridonic asserts that the respective color temperature remains constant even when dimmed. The modules feature a projected service life of 72,000 hours, and Tridonic backs them with a five-year manufacturer guarantee.
