A range of slim Orion LED modules based on Plessey's Stellar beam forming technology has been extended, with new beam angles opening the technology to a range of applications in industrial and architectural lighting design. Plessey will be showcasing the modules at their LuxLive booth M8.
Plessey Orion LED Beam Forming Modules deliver a compact 3,000 lumen beam from a tiny module which can be as little as 5.6mm thick, less than one-tenth the thickness 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, allowing lighting designers to simply and easily substitute modules to create a family of compact luminaires suitable for a range of lighting applications.
At the same time, Plessey announced plans to release Orion-Mini, a 45mm diameter version offering a 10° sub 1000 lumen beam in Spring 2017. The Orion-Mini will share the slim profile of the full size module, but will be offered in a format suitable for design into small form-factor downlights, spotlights and architectural lights as a replacement for GU10, MR16 and similar lights.
With its slim line form, range of colour temperatures and improved thermal characteristics, Orion modules are designed to be used in a variety of directional lighting applications such as retail, track and architectural. The thermal characteristics allow the heat sink and hence the overall luminaire to be reduced in size.
Paul Drosihn, Plessey’s Head of Modular Products, said: “Plessey now offers Orion, modules in a range of formats offering designers greater freedom. Orion modules are revolutionising the lighting market, giving scope for a radical rethinking of the way in which lighting from industrial high bay to architectural luminaires is designed. The Orion family with Stellar beam forming technology provides an innovative approach to directional lighting applications opening new opportunities for creativity in industrial and architectural design.”
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 100 lumens/W, feature an improved light uniformity and thermal performance.
