The Bridgelux family of Bridgelux V Series LED Array products delivers high performance, compact, costoptimized solid-state lighting solutions to serve the general lighting market. These cost-effective light engines extend the technology and performance of the highly successful Bridgelux Vero line. The Bridgelux V Series LED Arrays (Bridgelux V Series) feature high flux density in small source size packages, and is well suited for sub 1000 lumen commercial and residential lighting applications where tight beam control and high quality light are essential.
Optimizing the performance and reliability of a lighting system using Bridgelux V Series requires careful consideration of thermal management solutions, electronic drivers and secondary optics. It is equally important to use safe handling and appropriate manufacturing procedures, processes and chemicals during the assembly of the Bridgelux V Series into the lighting system.
This application note provides recommendations for proper mechanical and electrical assembly of Bridgelux V Series into lighting systems. Guidelines for chemical exposure and handling of the Bridgelux V Series are included to avoid damaging the LED Arrays during the assembly process. Recommended assembly procedures to ensure a reliable electrical connection to the LED driver and a mechanically robust, thermally efficient contact between the LED Array and underlying heat sink are also provided.
