Seoul Semiconductor’s latest Acrich2, AC LED module, which performs at 100 lm/watt is now available for volume production. And the company says this Acrich2 AC LED module will help the performance of the power grid.
Acrich2 provides lighting designers with a high efficacy light source which also has a high power factor, and improved Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) performance.
In traditional solid state lighting solutions, additional components and costs are required to provide an offline driver solution with acceptable dimming performance. Seoul Semi says its Acrich2 solution can save about $2 over these traditional solutions.
The new AC module also provides a DC dimming interface that allows the designer to easily integrate new dimming functions such as touch sensor and WIFI control dimming.
The Power Factor improvement which is up to 0.99, will also save costs in electricity. Conventional LED lighting products have lower Power Factors starting at 0.5 but mostly in the 0.7 to 0.8 range.
Seoul Semi’s Acrich operates effectively due to its ‘Integrated Multi-cell’ technology, which has been developed by the firm for over 10 years. As a result of this research, Acrich operates on both alternating current and direct current. What's more, it tolerates a wide range of voltages.
4W to 16W Acrich2 AC module are available now and the firm's production line is ready to manufacture large quantity orders.Customised Acrich2 solutions are also available.
